Because I can't play the XB1 exclusives on PC and I prefer playing online games on console. Same goes for PS4 since I will be getting both consoles.

Because I play all non-PC exclusives on consoles. I like consoles better than PC.

The rest of my friends can't afford a gaming PC...so whatever they pick up a console (whichever), I'll probably pick the same one up as them. They don't seem like they are in a rush to get either anytime soon...

meanwhile I'll just be playing BF4 and watchdogs on max settings anyway...with an xbox controller lol

I just wish Xbox One's controller was compatible with PC right out of the gate. Sounds like we'll have to wait until early 2014. I'm still debating on getting Watch Dogs for PC or X1. X1 for achievements is the way I am leaning.

I have several PCs at home capable of high end gaming but have no interest playing on that platform.

^this in a nutshell


Do note that there is really no reason for most of the Xbox One exclusives exclusivity. Most of them are "generic" games such as Halo, DR3 or Forza that could just as well be on the PC or the PS4. If the exclusivity blackmail was not viable they wouldn't be exclusive - them being exclusive is actually a reason to not support the "Xbox One package" as these deals don't really help anyone and are "irrational". Even if the (current) Xbox One failed for example the interest in Halo or Forza wouldn't go anywhere. Failure to realize this seems to be the problem with MS's marketing - anyone could pay Activision for CoD DLC exclusivity for example but it actually does nothing to justify the existence of the Xbox One!


I would say that I don't know what your talking about but I don't think YOU know what your talking about. You also have a very odd definition of "generic". Halo, DR3, and Forza are at the top of their respective genres.

With your reasoning any exclusive could be anywhere so I shouldn't buy anything?

Exactly. I was hoping somebody was going to comment on that load of garbage.
