Will you stick with MS next gen, or have they lost you>..!?

They lost me. Last gen the original xbox was well made and was a great gaming console. This gen the 360 hasn't help up well hardware wise and they are really getting away from gaming. Plus their emphasis on Kinect has further pushed me away.

PS4 an PC for me next gen unless MS goes back to the basics which I doubt they will do.

I will do the same thing I do with every new console. I will wait to see how it does and what games are announced. If I like it, then I buy it.

They have lost me.
#1 issue I have is the poor hardware (5)
#2 Issue is I don't care about their exclusive games at all anymore
#3 Issue is paying for online gaming that I am less interested in by the day

I have already started making all my online gaming purchases for the PS3 so next year when XBL renewal is up I won't feel obligated to.
And if anything happens with consoles in regards to digital only distribution or no more used games I will be back to a full time PC gamer with a full time gaming PC hooked up to the big screen.

And it's not just MS , the entire industry is sucking and have adopted a "we own you " mentality as opposed to a "what can we do to make things better " mentality , no other industry would survive using this logic.

Here are the 4 MAIN factors that I want to point out regarding this issue:

1. You're out of touch.
2. I'm out of time.
3. But I'm out of my head.

And last but certainly not least:

4. When you're not around.

I apologize for my outburst earlier. It's just that there have been a lot of topics lately asking me questions about things that are personal to me, and frankly I just feel like at this point, I don't have to answer them.


Nobody is forcing you...

That said, it's been very clear that Sony has kept pushing for new original IPs these last few years, while MS hasn't.

Sony hasn't made/pushed a new retail IP since Heavy Rain in 2010. Any new Move, PSP/Vita or downloadable IP Microsoft pushed more with Kinect/XBLA.
