Pong creator turns nose up at Nintendo Wii U


Re: If anything

Buy a £250 console and you get 4-5 years of life out of it and are still able to play the latest games with the same user experience as everyone else.

Try that with a PC and most (note, not ALL) modern games and you'll be lucky if it's even going to work in noddy graphics mode 3 years down the line.

The reasons that many people buy consoles are there's no technical barrier to overcome, smaller initial outlay and no perpetual hardware refresh to play the latest games other than when you decide to go 'next gen'.
