I always buy the one next gen console I'm most hyped for once it has the first game that draws my attention. Usually it's at launch or shortly after as it works out. I'll buy the other consoles later on down the line though.

This time it's different though. No way in hell I'll buy the next Xbox. XB1 is the only console I've ever bought that I actually regretted.

Stupid to ever buy another Xbox as far as I'm concerned now. Company policy mandates all exclusives have to be on PC as well so I'll just play any games they release there on superior hardware and any other games I can just get on PS5.

* According to a report from Video Games Chronicle, Sony's European branch was recently hit with a wave of layoffs. Supposedly it was due to the growing influence and control of Sony's US branch over the company's global plans.

* Sony is rumored to be currently working on wireless Playstation VR headset for their upcoming PS5 based on recent patent filings.

* For those interested in the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game, Activision is currently recommending needing at least 175 GB of free space on the hard drive. Game itself is a lot smaller but they recommend reserving the extra space for all the post-launch content being planned.

Never made an Origin account but I did have some kind of account on EA related to Battlefield so I will check on that.

All these brands asking us to create accounts and sign in for this or that is really starting to bite us in the ass.

Also, the penchant for console makers to push out the first launch batch or two with major issues dating back to about the Dreamcast. I think the PS2 was the the last console to launch without an initial massive failure rate. And I worked retail back then, so thank God.

In one way or another.

I was always more paranoid about stuff like that, so I make a different/unique login to all of those accounts instead of a generic universal and bullshit a fake name and such in the "required field" spots. Problem there is I can never remember any of them, so when the accounts go unused, anything there may as well be so much vapor. Pretty sure I still have a second Steam account I opened the last time I was in college linked to that school's student email, and I don't even remember the address.

Update to recent Blizzard Heartstone eSports controversy news as the company recently announced they have reduced the punishments given to a Heartstone eSports player and two commentators for their involvement in an interview that brought up the Hong Kong protests.

The pro eSports player had his suspension reduced to six months and will be allowed to keep all of his prize money earned while the two commentators had their punishment reduced to just a 6 month suspension instead of an automatic firing.

Even with the reductions, Blizzard is still facing a lot of online backlash due to releasing two different official statements on the issue. The statement in English mentioned the punishments were not done to appease China and were mostly due to taking the focus away from the game's event and broadcast.

The statement in China however was a lot more harsher towards those punished and included a line where the punishment was due to needing to "defend the pride and dignity of China at all costs."
