Ok so I'm an old fashioned Lemming, bought my original Xbox in 2003 and swore against the PS2 even though most of my friends had one. I loved Xbox, halo, DOA PGR and the rest. I believed Sony was arrogant and the PS2 underpowered and I preferred the Xbox line up of games. In January 2006 I bought the Xbox 360 and loved the machine I've lost count how many games I've bought for it in the last 8 years heck I've bought 3 x360 consoles! I avoided the PS3, I didn't think it was worth the price and most of the games could be had on x360 plus xbox live has always had an edge. But now I've gone over to the dark side. I've become the very thing I thought I never would... A playstation owner. I just bought a PS4 and a copy of BF4. Technologically it is more powerful than Xbox One, it is cheaper and apparently Sony have improved the online.
Have I made the right decision? I do not know yet, only time will tell.
But what I will say is this, if Sony have managed to persuade a lemming like me to switch sides then it's going to be a very one sided console war.
I'm sorry Microsoft, but you forgot what made the Xbox and; Xbox 360 such great machines - powerful hardware at affordable prices. The Xbox one is less powerful and less affordable than it should be.
