Comment Apple Says Something Uninteresting (Score 2) 214

Paraphrased from within the link, "We have a lot of privacy information, we just don't connect it together." How flattering Apple, you know, this reminds me of (insert country here) that is collecting a ton of (insert commodity here). They don't plan to use it of course. They just like collecting it, and doing nothing interesting with it. No, nothing special all. Isn't that right, Apple? Or, should I say, Big BrApple?!?! (Terrible joke, I know)

Console producers slap a computer together, mass-produce it and sell it under a price tag. With this they can corner a series of games exclusively for that console alone, so if you want to play a certain game, you'll have to buy the console. And if you just happen to own a console/PC where the game was not originally designed to play on, you'll probably end up with a buggy game. But the biggest issue is that most console games treat their player as if they couldn't handle the concept of pushing a button. You think most of these horridly generic games would be intuitive as to how to play. There are many more reasons why consoles ruin videogames, it's just this awful generifying of games that all have the same exact issue that is not necessary yet included in every game. Oh well consoles, if you think I don't understand the concept of moving with an analog stick, then I doubt I could've actually turned the console on myself.
