hats off to any1 who cares to read all that


TCs post be rustling the haters/fanboys jimmies, I'd put money on it you both read every single word

OT: Sounds like you've made the right choice based on your post, personally neither console has impressed me to go out and buy one! MS has a better exclusive line up atm imo but not good enough to buy an xbone for

Il wait until next year to pick one of them up and probably get the other the year after if they've both impressed

Did you hit all the bullet points on the little chart in front of you?


There's no chart, or script. Just sharing my thoughts. I could elaborate further and with much more detail and clarity, if you're interested in hearing more?

Let me know.


Don't mind Laylow, he's plagued this board for months with endless negativity and MS hate, his commitment is impressive, pathetic yes but still rather impressive

I love how the TC just stated why he grabbed an Xbox One and every fanboy tears this thread a part. Wow. It's not like he is bragging either, it's the Xbox One board.

I've had a change of heart, so I thought that I'd pass along my thoughts as to why it happened. I am an avid PC gamer and also own a Wii U. I told myself that I would wait a while until there is games that would appeal to me and justify my purchase of an Xbox One or PS4.

I have no desire to own both, especially after having owned multiple SKU's of both the Xbox 360 and PS3 last generation. I will not be doing that again, as I found it to be a waste of money in the long run. Plus, I'd just rather have less clutter in our main living room.

On to my reversal and thoughts...

I've played the PS4 and some of the games over at my buddies house. Same with the Xbox One and the controller, as he owns both consoles. The DS4 controller is a great upgrade over its predecessors, but I still found it uncomfortable after several hours of use -- I guess you could partly chalk that up to me having larger hands. Also, I found the battery life to be abysmal. There's easy ways around that, it's just inconvenient more than anything else.

With the Xbox One controller, I found it just as comfortable as the X360 one, maybe even more so. It just seemed sculpted to my hand and natural. Obviously this all personal preference, but I find that whichever controller is more comfortable to you should go a long way in your purchasing decision(s). Plus, I'll be playing the Elder Scrolls online from my console of choice once it drops (playing on PC religiously now) -- hence, a lot of hours using a controller. I want said controller to be comfortable in my hands, and in my case, that is the X1 controller.

Games, plain and simple. Microsoft is really going to town on the development and innovation that go into releasing us some terrific games now, and into the future. The lineup looks excellent to me, very bright future there. My personal trifecta that I am most excited for is: Sunset Overdrive, The Master Chief Collection, and Quantum Break (love Sam Lake and Remedy). These three games make the Xbox One worth a purchase alone (on paper).

The more and more that I've watched and read with Sunset Overdrive, well, the anticipation and level of adoration has crept up on me. This game looks insanely fun, polished, and like a truly next generation experience with the Xbox One platform. I'm sold, completely and utterly -- it's now THE one title that I'm most looking forward to this year. I'm all in!

The online aspect. In my experience, XBL vs. PSN is different. In my opinion, XBL is more robust and feature rich, with a living community that is thriving. PSN while nothing to scoff at (and was great for free), just seemed much more muted, cold, and sterile in comparison. Microsoft has always seemed much more swift on the software side (firmware updates, patches, etc.), while Sony has had its share of well documented problems.

The one negative in all of this, is that more of my friends are on the PS4 and PSN. That was something that weighed heavily on my mind, and is something that should be a huge factor in someone's buying decision. In my case, I've decided to forego that aspect and do what makes the most sense for me and would ultimately make me happier in the long run. The games, controller, and XBL (Microsoft software support) itself were the three pros that outweighed my glaring con. Very excited to get an Xbox One, and get to gaming on it.

Anyone else in a similar boat, recently?


Did you hit all the bullet points on the little chart in front of you?

Thanks everybody.

Just picked up my new system tonight. Looking forward to playing around with it for a while into the wee hours, once the wife and kids go to bed and are slumbering away.
