I am buying an XBOX One before a PS4 because XBOX 360 rocked

and in comparison, PS3 sucked.

Things I don't care about
Pre-order numbers
Console Sales
Software sales
Anything else related to sales (I'm not making money off of this stuff)

Things I do care about
OS
Online Service
Controller
Games

The XBOX completely dominates the things I do care about category. The 360 took a dump all over the PS3 (still doing it). If history can tell me anything, the PS4 will start getting good right about the time the PS5 is going to come out. I have plenty of time to get one.

360 got obliterated in the games department.

Agreed. The PS3 was awful until about 2010-2011. The 360 on the other hand, was awesome all the way through(even during the times when I had to send it in to MS).

the 360 being the X1's predecessor was a major reason for me to be inclined to stick with MS. Of course I had to see what the new consoles were offering once they were announced to see if I'd switch or see if I'd be picking them both up, but this was my first reason.

I kind of agree with you TC, just not to the extreme! I would say the PS3 easily bested the 360 overall in exclusives over the last few years. Though that said, I'd take Halo and Gears over any PS3 exclusive(maybe save MGS4) Between the Xbox 360 and PS3 this gen, I spent probably 90% of my time on the 360 in comparison to the PS3. PSN just seems basic and boring and Xbox Live always seemed more colorful and full of life. I also preferred the 360 pad to the DS3.

TC doesn't care about specs, better graphics, more games, paying less, and getting a whole bunch of free games through psn?

Well, have fun with the xbone :)

you're boring us troll, we prefer better games, better online, better controllers, better features, and a better community. Now flush yourself away.

That reasoning is pretty flawed.

The SNES was the second best console ever made(behind the PS1), and then the N64 came out...
