After discussing why gamers/consumers choose particular platforms over others [URL=http://gameculture.com/2010/05/24/what-platform-do-you-choose-and-why]yesterday[/URL] (and the responses were great - keep them coming!), it was revealed that there are alot of reasons why some gamers choose to devote themselves to one particular platform over another. Some of the reasons were not as obvious as you might think. And for those of us who observe and write about these interesting aspects of game culture, we're intrigued as to why so many gamers become impassioned to the point of obsession over their chosen console. Another way to look at it (as pointed out by [URL=http://gamevideos.1up.com/video/id/26778]this[/URL] brilliant clip from Scott Sharkey over at 1up) is perhaps it's not so much that we're inclined to like something as we are to hate something else. The clip goes on to other points such as identity and how it's human nature to want to feel a part of something, to belong and to share things in common with others. Another factor is choice. We're inundated with so many different ways to access games these days that when we finally do decide to shell out all our hard earned cash, we have to defend and justify our reasons for doing so. And before we know it, we're stuck in forums debating why we spent the 600 bucks on an Xbox 360 in the first place.
