PSXE Poll Update: Gamers Will Be Selective This Year
It's never a good idea to waste money. It's a far better idea to do the research and drop your hard-earned cash for the games you're sure to love.
And that seems to be exactly what most of the PSXE readers will be doing this holiday season. Despite the typical October/November blitz, the vast majority of our readers say they'll only be picking up between one and four titles between now and the end of the year. Only a small percentage say they'll buy more than four but thankfully, only 51 say they won't be buying any...seriously, what are you doing at a game site if you're no sort of gamer? But anyway, it's nice to see selective consumers out there, and it also proves that most people do have other things to do; they do have priorities because...um...they're like, adults, and stuff. By the way, the reason there's a Gran Turismo 5 pic here is because we keep seeing comments like, "eh, just waiting on GT5." That's cool and all but just don't forget about the other potential greats!
This week, we want to know what you think about the EA/Medal of Honor/Taliban controversy. As reported this past week, EA buckled under the pressure and removed the Taliban reference from the multiplayer portion. Do you think this was a good move? Or is it only a good move from a business perspective? Some are calling it cowardly; others are calling it respectful. What say you?
P.S. If you have to have a big long discussion about this, please don't use the Comment section to do it; go into the forums.
