I was discussing, with a friend, what options we would like to see in games, more specifically console games. Eventually, we came to a question that we couldn't answer. We speculated but nothing that seemed like a solid reason. So my question is: why do console games tend to have very limited options? The options we would like to see in gaming are: An option to reduce graphical quality for better performance and vice versa. The option to remap the controls. FOV controls. A colorblind option. An option for other kinds of input devices. For example: mouse and joystick for a shooter. I have to wonder why these are so rare, especially in console gaming. I'd be willing to turn down the graphics to reach a better FPS. I know that and the other options aren't concerns to many people, but they're just options for those that do have concerns.
