Video games are, regrettably, one of my more prominent hobbies and I have sufficient money to support that hobby.

I have Ps4 and Xbox One preordered.

A much better launch line up over it's competitor, an always legendary controller, an always great online service and Kinect 2.0 being included. I realize I must be in the minority over Kinect, but then, I'm not a paranoid conspiracy theorist who thinks they'll spy on me and I've always wanted to try the thing out. My family will love it.

My MAIN reason is because I liked their launch lineup more. And to a lesser extent, I expect the games that come out in the future to be as enjoyable as X360 games have been this gen.

Dead Rising 3 and Assassin's Creed 4 are already a done deal!

I pre-ordered it when it was available through the 360 dashboard just so I could get that rare achievement that unlocked after you pre-ordered. That's honestly the only reason I pre-ordered so early.

Glad I did, though. Happy to know that I have a Day One edition with my name on it coming from the official Microsoft store.

Better launch lineup
Better online service
Better GUI
Better controller
Unique aspects like the cable box integration and Kinect 2.0

I have a PS3 just for Sony exclusives and will probably get a PS4 for that same reason in a year or so, but I want the X1 much more. I feel like the PS4 is just a more powerful PS3. Even though seemingly almost everyone hated the side effects (myself not included) at least MS was trying to do unique things like game sharing w/o the need for a disc, 1st party TV shows, cable box, cloud, and new Kinect features, etc.
Note to GFAQs mods: You do an absolutely terrible job at modding trolling. Get better at it and give harsher punishments for it.
