    Does anyone else see the hilarious irony of this gen so far? Last gen it was all about gimmicky crap with Nintendo leading and Sony and MS trying to rip them off. Now, you have Nintendo dead last, MS trailing significantly behind in second, and Sony dominating the charts with the most powerful machine whose main gimmick is a touchpad that you are never forced to use. God, this is better than a soap opera.

    Gaming always go through different phases Wii was dominating in sales but is still shunned by people hating on its motion, calling it gimmicky shit and ignoring its first party, then in 2010 people are "MY MOTION IS BETTER THAN YOURS" Its only a matter of time till the generation shifts yet again, possibly this year given Nintendo is do or Iwata die, and Microsoft is stepping it up, while Sony is just sitting there callings shots.

    Why is everyone so upset? History has shown us that splitting your user base in two will not render certain tech useless. For example, when I got my Wii motion+ I was able to use in in many games besides Zelda:SS, Red Steel 2 and Sports resorts. (All games that came prepacked with +). For example.........uh. Nope. Can't think of any. In all seriousness, had I gone the XB1 route instead of the ps4 I would be PISSED that they have scrapped it in less than a year. Now people get to pay the same amount for a less powerful system that still cannot render games in 1080p.

    here's my take, and let me start off by saying i am a Playstation Fanboy. ive owned all 3 previous systems and will purchase a PS4 later in time for Destiny. i have not owned an Xbox and i dont see myself owning one. I consider myself above a casual gamer. i have a high end PC on which i game on, i follow gaming every day, new games, reviews, stuff like this, etc, and while i can afford a new system and some new games here and there, i dont see it in my best interest to not only shell out for two systems, but the games for two systems. as the article states at the end, games are slowly becoming multi platform with long time PS exclusives like FF and MGS crossing over. as such, theres slowly less reason to buy two consoles anyways. however that said, i do believe PS still has the majority of exclusives to play. not counting previous titles of now cross platform games (like earlier FF games and every MGS game until now) theres still games like Uncharted, God of War, Killzone, Resistance (which was finished on PS3) Ratchet and Clank (though Insomniac now has an xbox exclusive in Sunset Overdrive) Ni No Kuni, and others still. the top Xbox exclusives are Gears and Halo, and now Titanfall on X1 (and on PC), while all are good and id buy if they were on PS (or PC), are not enough to get me to buy a console. This price drop, and exclusion of Kinect is good. I was never interested in the Kinect anyways, neither its possible applications nor its always on mentality. so if I were interested at all in the X1, this is a good thing, as is the price drop. however Its too little too late and i wont be picking up an X1 because of the aforementioned reasons....Plus the majority of my friends are on PS3(4)

    This is good news, but it is definitely too little too late. Although now I might actually consider getting an Xbone when the next gears and Halo come out. But I haven't even heard a release date for any of those. It seems like the Xbone is having the same problem as the Wii U, not enough 1st party exclusives.
  • hunter-payne - May 13, 2014 2:48 p.m.

    Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Titanfall, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare..there are some great, great first party Xbox One titles..trust me
  • kyle-novitski - May 13, 2014 3:25 p.m.

    cant call titfall an exclusive, when the next game is being released to ps4 as well
  • BladedFalcon - May 13, 2014 4:50 p.m.

    Er... wot? having the sequel "possibly" coming out for PS4 (which hasn't been yet confirmed to begin with) doesn't cancel the fact that the first Titan Fall IS a Microsoft exclusive. They are two separate products, one of which hasn't come out and probably won't in at least 2 or 3 more years.
  • BladedFalcon - May 13, 2014 5:01 p.m.

    4 games alone are far from enough to justify a console purchase, at least for me. Also, Garden Warfare kinda sucks with all the free to pay shit they now have going on... Despite not actually being a free to play game >_>; Anyway, you forgot to mention Killer Instinct in your exclusives. And sure, piece by piece MS has the upper hand over the PS4 for now, just like they did at first the 360, before slowly losing a lot of exclusives, and then producing less and less per year... So let's wait and see if they can keep up this time?
  • Jackonomics2.0 - May 14, 2014 1:32 p.m.

    Garden Warfare technically isn't free to play. You can just buy coins now, to unlock shit that doesn't even matter to the gameplay shift, and most of the people who played it since launch unlocks everything anyway. Eh, all this exclusive talk is frankly boring, but Microsoft still have a couple of exclusives in their sleeves, specifically the games they showed last E3 that we still need info on, like that Dead Rising rip off from Isomniac and that game that is supposedly a TV show or something. Still, both sides have their own jack cards, lets see if we'll actually see them at E3. Multiplats will probably still get the most attention though, like Batman, except maybe Watch Dogs cause Ubisoft are fucking idiots.
  • BladedFalcon - May 14, 2014 5:23 p.m.

    Sure technically, but Garden Warfare was engineered from the get go to work as a Free to Play game... except you have to pay for the actual fucking game to begin with. EA lulled people at first by not having the microtransactions, and introduce them later, making those too busy or incompetent to unlock everything manually feel like it's a "good thing" they have Microtransactions now... When in fact they were just suckered in. Also, how the fuck is Sunset Overdrive a ripoff of Dead Rising? it's not the same concept, the same art-style, and not even the same fucking game-play style. How is it in any way a ripoff?
  • Jackonomics2.0 - May 14, 2014 6:25 p.m.

    Say what you want but the microtransaction doesnt bother anyone because your just unlocking accessories and all the other variation of characters are never guranteed better, they all play different and have a positive Negative. The game itself is literally just constantly playing the game to unlock something else to constantly play the game with, its not gonna be a game changer in any sort of sense. Also someone else here was complaining about how people were shoving EA's name in the game when the devs of the game Popcap should be the ones praised for making the game work, otherwise business wise sure you can talk about EA. I only see it as a Dead Rising rip off because the recent gameplay footage has the guy running about, using powers against hordes of monsters and has you finding different people and groups who are also fighting said monsters, reminding me about Dead Rising.
  • BladedFalcon - May 14, 2014 7:19 p.m.

    Except that it is, because those games are made with the idea that sure, you can technically play the game constantly until you unlock something... Except that the requisites to unlock said something are so much more absurd, repetitive, or luck based in a way they would never be if it wasn't a free to play model. So it actually DOES affect everyone. And I'm sorry, but PopCap games only started using this obnoxious F2P model AFTER they were bought by EA. The first Plants Vs. Zombies was a great game that had a pretty sweet cmapaign and progression, the second game was a mediocre piece of garbage that locked that sense of progression behind gates that you could only unlock by playing the game repeatedly and HOPING you would get a key at random, even though it could take over 10 matches to get a single fucking key compared to the first game needing only ONE match. Dude... no offense, but that's a very stupid and ignorant assessment. Sunset overdrive works as a third person shooter first and foremost, with emphasis on kills and combos ala bulletstorm. Whereas dead rising was more like a hack and slash, with emphasis on item collection and combining, they are very different games in practice.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - May 14, 2014 9:39 p.m.

    Eh, i dont find a problem with it personally. Thats not what i meant, im not talking about the F2P model, im talking about the game itself, whether negativity or on the time being when it didnt have Microtransactions it was "EA" This "EA" that, you rarely actually hear Popcap's name in the discussion, thats like talking about Retro Studios games as if Nintendo made it and ignoring Retro. For the record i dont hate the game, it was just a lazy comparison i made when i saw it and trying to remind my friend about it, he even called me out on that comparison.
  • BladedFalcon - May 14, 2014 9:46 p.m.

    That's because the gameplay itself of the game is fine, is the way they made unlockables work that's the problem, and while there is the possibility that PopCap was a-okay with this. You can't deny that this reeks of EA's tampering, seeing how a lot of their games as of late are trying to introduce and milk F2P or F2P elements in one way or another. (ME3's multiplayer booster packs, Dungeon keeper, Dead Space 3, etc.)
  • Jackonomics2.0 - May 14, 2014 10:01 p.m.

    True, though its still neat that they had updates to the game that are free, it made coming back to the game worth it after it loses its addiction factor and wanting to keep unlocking stuff. Thats how i see it, unlocking the stuff keeps you playing, those who use money to buy more coins can suit themselves.
  • brickman409 - May 13, 2014 10:46 p.m.

    True, there are some good first party games for the console, but the only exclusive game that really makes the Xbone stand out is Dead rising 3 and maybe PVZ: Garden Warfare. Titanfall is cool, but its also on PC and 360, so I wouldn't really call it an exclusive. Forza 5 is a racing sim, and all racing sim games are basically the same, and every console has them. I've played Forza 5, it's great and all, but nothing really stood out about it compared to other racing games, and there isn't any reason why it should, it is a racing game after all.
  • SveedishFeesh - May 13, 2014 2:36 p.m.

    If the used games policy is still unchanged, I still see no reason to get it.
  • hunter-payne - May 13, 2014 2:48 p.m.

    what used games policy? You can buy used games and play them just like any other system
  • william-h-cox-sr - May 13, 2014 2:29 p.m.

    Well for one I don't see it making a difference what the Xbox One does if you want to know the truth most xbox one games only display in 720 as the ps4 displays in true 1080 I don't care what or who says what but I have a ps4and the only thing the ps4 needs to work on is their browser on the system But I won't knock down the xbox one wouldn'tmmind getting one one day but no time soon
