Buying and choosing a system is part of the fun imo.
Oh I agree, but Microsoft has failed so much this gen- from making the weaker system, to not putting out compelling first party content, to shutting down content, to losing marketing deals. I'm baffled at the amount of stubbornness people have on here to not see Sony has won this gen in both power and new content.
Despite all this the Xbox One has gotten the 3rd party games that matter, two great compilations in Rare Replay and Halo MCC, a handful of good "exclusive" games in Ori, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, and the Forzas, and BC is a nice feature, with only a few what I'd call essential games missing from the list. But it's still losing against Sony's 1st party, content deals, and power.
Last gen was much more interesting in that Microsoft was doing things to make it competitive. That was when it was fun. Now it's just people being annoying in either stubbornness or trolling or excessive haha we won threads.
Hopefully Microsoft invests in some more/new studios next gen and puts out the more powerful system to make it interesting again.
That's where I think you're mistaken , how many people didn't say the first years of this gen, my ps4 is a dust collector. It's only recently that system started reaching for its potential.
That has a lot to do with timed exclusivity deals, the xboxone was not as good as the x360 by far, but that was also due to the lack of good multiplats. It was less boring to me because it got games like world of tanks and elite dangerous a lot sooner. It also has magic duels and fifa legends, and these are pretty much the only games I played this gen, apart from fallout 4.
But it was more than that , the xboxone did manage to put out more exclusives in the beginning as well. True some of them did release on the pc too but if you're a console gamer that isn't worth much.
It's only since 2016 and especially 2017 sony did get up to speed, with the timed exclusivity deals that expired and also high quality 1st party content. The fact that xboxone cancelled scalebound and doesn't really come up with something is now putting sony in the spotlight.
That's also the reason why I'm considering a ps4pro but like I said if the xboxone x was like 420 dollars, yeah then that would be another matter but 130$ more with nothing but with higher resolution multiplats, which won't show much difference in the beginning due to the checkerboard rendering on the ps4pro, is not very tempting.
The delay of red dead redemption isn't helping either, and nobody knows how demanding that game will be.
