Thanks Microsoft. Now I am considering an OUYA

This whole thing has made me really think about the reasons that I game.

I game for fun - this is number #1. A game can have great graphics but fail if it is not fun at its core.

I game to get away - i think this is about story. I like an escape, I like lore and back story and great characters.

I game to socialize. My wife and I still play RE5 and Rock Band because the multiplayer is so great.

I like graphics, but it is way low on my list.

Microsoft has put gaming secondary to 'multimedia'. Plus, they have given us the big middle finger when it comes to used games, online and the kinect

So, now, I am considering going with the OUYA, which I never even considered before.

Is it because it is going to solve all these issues? No, it is just because Microsoft has let me down so hard

Turn on your Xbox look at your friends list. I bet half of your friends are not even playing games. I bet they are watching Netflix or hulu or YouTube or listening to music. You know the multimedia stuff.

Totally understand the TC.

I'm going from Xbox 360 to a PS4 myself, but yeah an OUYA would be a better choice too.

That's interesting about Minecraft. Most of my friends with children are playing Minecraft almost exclusively.
