Isn't this year exciting for the console race? By now, each of the big three home console competitors have made their 8th generation entries. They all have their similarities, but there's one that undoubtedly sticks out like a sore thumb.
This maverick of a hardware developer seems to have taken the less popular route. They have chosen to allow players to transfer downloaded games from from their older console to the newer one, which is also backwards-compatible with last gen's games and controllers. this allows their consumers to return or discard the outdated hardware without losing any data.
Of course, this isn't the only difference. The oddball company has also refrained from charging for improved online services, which saves the consumers a lot of money in the long-run. Also, the oddball keeps their tendency to target a young age group, which really breathes life into an otherwise generically mature-oriented industry.
But perhaps the most obvious thing that sets them apart this gen is the fact that they released their console a whole year before the competition. While making the hardware unusually under-powered, this has also given them a longer opportunity to make new games, which results in a more fruitful library than the competitors this holiday season.
