The Question of Buying New Games for Old Systems

Though we’re well into this generation of “current” consoles with the Xbox One and PS4, the previous console generation with your Xbox 360s and PS3s is not dead…yet. So when it comes to buying a game that’s available on systems both old and new, like Rise of the Tomb Raider, what’s a gamer to do? While it might seem like the obvious choice is to simply get the new game on the new system, the answer isn’t quite as cut and dry. This fair-weather conundrum is one I recently explored in this post on United We Game.

So why would any gamer in her right mind think about buying a current game for anything other than a current system?
