Xbox One has some decent exclusives at launch, however is a gaming PC better overall?

Depends if the exclusives, Kinect, Snap, and other non-gaming features interest you.

The only game so far on he xbone that looks good is titanfall. I will get it for my Gaming Laptop. MS Digital Sales are a laughing stock compared to steam sales. I buy games for litteraly dollars per game. IF MS wanted to start going DD only they should have started giving you a reason with the 360. The sales the 360 had where a joke. If MS wants to do DD only next gen and wants people to buy in to that they better start doing those steam like sales very soon.
SRPG games...i just love them!

I started building a game PC once i heard new systems were coming out, i didn't want new systems and i still don't see the need for them. Its been 8 months since having my PC and i don't see myself going back to consoles for quite a while.

Not much difference between an Xbox One and a PC except for the exclusives for software. Hardware, the only significant advantage between console hardware and PC hardware is the GPU/CPU bus. Xbox One bus is 68GB/sec while the PS4 has 176GB/s bus. The PC's PCI Express 4.0 bus is only about 32GB/s and the current PCI Express 3.0 bus is only 16GB/s. For PC gamers dumb enough to build a PC system on launch year, their PC rigs will be choked when games start moving large amounts of data between the CPU and GPU. Although that may take a while for developers to push the consoles for that performance.

Using the Xbox One as the weakest of the two consoles for handling large amounts of data and you build a current PC, you would eventually need to move about 4X as much data between the CPU and GPU on a PCI Express 3.0 bus just to keep up with the Xbox One's 68GB/sec. So you would eventually have to upgrade both the CPU and GPU and maybe replace the motherboard with a PCI Express 4.0 if possible.

This is why I have decided not to upgrade my PC until the end of the next gen consoles and just buy a PS4/Xbox One combo. Besides the slow bus, PC gaming has a few other issues that need to be resolved before I return to PC gaming. Just my opinion.
