I think if the boot were on the other hand, it would suddenly become of the utmost importance, nay, vital to the success of the console etc.

We already know this is the case from the 360/PS3 face-offs.

I wasn't going to mention that out of diplomacy. I remember 720p being very, very bad at that time.

You're damn right it matters to me! Just like when I bought 360 versions of multi-plats last time round - because they were superior. It's the same with PC gaming - if I'm not playing the game with it looking the very best it can look, well that would irritate me.

We all have areas where we demand the best. Some people devote time and money to driving flashy cars, whereas we both drive rust buckets, because I spend all our cash on PC components

So yes, it matters to me. I'm amazed that people are so blasé quite frankly. As KRW says though, if the shoe was on the other foot, I think a fair amount of people on here would suddenly start caring a lot

welcome to the console "war"

I remember the ghostbusters thread where the sony nutjobs did their best to dismiss the vast difference between the versions.

Yeah, I went with 360 last time as well because the multi-plats were generally better.

Yep it was 360 all the way last time...

18 month head start helped as well.

Got nailed on all comparisons too...good times.

Now I'm PS4...ms cocked it up from the start. I'd have been very annoyed about the party chat stuff.

Am I being blind or is there a trial version for the Xbox 360 version of Strider but not the One?

None full stop, or the developer just isn't forced to make one?

Seems a bit silly to go to the effort of making a trial for one version and not the other.

Seriously? Is this what this forum is going to be now?

I can certainly understand the satisfaction of playing a game at its best. For some, that means expensive PC's, for others, selecting the best console version.

It's also true that, last gen, it meant 360 owners would generally enjoy the best game and, this gen, PS4 owners will.

But it shouldn't be satisfying to the point that you feel the immature need to point it out every post you can.

I think you will find that most of the people on this forum haven't spent last gen just counting pixels. We've enjoyed lots of games over the last generation. And those of us with only one console mostly enjoyed games fine whether it was the best version or not. When I got FFXIII on my 360, I didn't lose any sleep over the fact the PS3 version was better. So what?

But now people are feeling very clever with their: "Another game has more pixels on the PS4!" and then the killer follow up: "Of course, now people who (are silly enough to) play on an XBox are going to say resolution doesn't matter". It's like there is a lot of pent up angst and "butthurtness" around.

Is this still a gaming forum? Do we want it to be a gaming community which enjoys games together rather than spend all its time trying to belittle or provoke those who own another system?

I know it's the norm on "the internet". And yes, I remember the fanboy wars between C64 owners (I was one) and those owning a Speccy, or between Atari and Amiga. The question is, is this place like the rest of the net then? If so, I don't think it is that compelling to visit...

Now you can shoot me down for being a sanctimonious old fart.
