What is it with modern game consoles?
Remember the NES? Plug in, turn on, play.
I know so many people who owned or still own a NES. Not one of them ever had a defective device.
Same goes for the SNES. Or any other console.
Is this obvious degrade in quality the price of ever increasing complexity? Is this the price of abstraction?
I wonder: What will ultimately be the end of ever increasing evolution in technical devices as we know them today: Is it physical limitations like the theory of relativity or is it the plain inability of our brains to comprehend the complexity of the devices we create?
