    Gamer's Grammar: I'm yet another casualty in the console wars
    As I write this, my finger hovers over the “place order” button on Amazon . . . a click away from spending $400 on yet another game console—a PlayStation 4. That’s on top of the $500 I spent last year on the new Xbox One. How much have I spent on games in the past two years? Maybe $1,500 total? I have no idea.

Admittedly, my uptick in spending is an anomaly. Home console gaming is in an awkward transition, as one generation of games is slowly, painfully phased out over multiple years for more graphics-heavy successors. Games have never looked so realistic, felt so cinematic, and included so many online players. The last time this happened was in 2005. Ten years later, Sony (PlayStation) and Microsoft (Xbox) are flexing as hard as they can to capture a majority of the market.
