Anything that will dethrone the current way Pubs and Devs think about how to bring Games to their Customers - is welcome with me. I think todays Pubs and Devs have completely lost touch with what they're doing... and if it means being fired... then perhaps that is literally the only way some people are going to finally realize... "that there are actually Gamers who are not satisfied with the quality of work todays Devs/Pubs are dishing out, that standards should be revisited and properly addressed, and that price point schemes of today are unsustainable in the long run and why".
Until a formal Boycott of todays biggest IPs, Devs, and Pubs occurs... nothing will change for the ultimate better (we're still going to have badass games coming out just the same, but all the current nonsense of buggy releases, endless DLC that should have come with the original product, Devs who refuse to talk to their Customers about their software, Pubs who are supposed to be able to offer support for said products but don't because they literally don't know how/or flat out refuse to offer proper support, the list goes on and on...).
In a nutshell... there are three giants who currently have a Triopoly
A 4th option might be all that's needed to put the Industry back on course... a Console created for Gamers, by Gamers.. Published by Gamers, for Gamers.. Priced by Gamers, for Gamers - could definitely be what this Industry sorely needs.
