Console reveals are fun, arenâ€™t they?
I wasnâ€™t expecting to get a look at the actual Playstation 5 when Sony did their showcase this past week. If I remember correctly it only mentioned it would be showing off games for the new system but then at the end we get the reveal. Nice surprise. I liked that. And I also liked the console. I like the looks of both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X.
Because I donâ€™t care what they look like. I never have. Outside of the television itself, Iâ€™ve never been particular to the looks of my equipment. Itâ€™s not an aesthetic I genuinely have interest in. Itâ€™s what the machine can do that sells me on it. Specs and price. Not design. And they havenâ€™t designed a system yet where Iâ€™ve changed my mind about getting it because it was ugly.
Thatâ€™s not how game systems work. Oh sure, I enjoy the memes and jokes on their design. Itâ€™s some of the funniest stuff Iâ€™ve ever seen, but it doesnâ€™t sway ANYONE on getting a system. At least it shouldnâ€™t. Go where the games are that you want to play. Thatâ€™s how itâ€™s always been.
And still, weâ€™re clueless on price for both of these and thatâ€™s still the part that REALLY holds my interest.
