Honestly, the only console I'm excited to own anymore is the Switch. I don't remember the last time I fired up my Xbone (Oh wait, it was recently for Destiny 2, for about 2 hours. Yawn.). I had also preordered the Scorpio Edition One X, but I couldn't convince myself to pay over $500 for an unnecesary console, so I cancelled it earlier today. I barely touch my PS4 either.

This console generation as a whole just seems incredibly lackluster as far as titles. I also think console manufacturers are going crazy... There's the release day console, then 2 years later is a Slim version, then another year or two later is a hardware-boosted box. How many fucking consoles am I supposed to buy for one generation? There's more hardware SKUs than there are exclusive titles, for fucks sake.

Ah, well then I'm fairly certain that you can't read .

If you're planning on bailing on the industry, you don't roll out a new OG Xbox backwards compatibility program that's been in engineering for almost half of a decade, nor do you roll out new Xbox hardware and standardise the "Xbone" platform for the future. Both are long term investments that will take a substantial period of time to recoup the development costs.

The PS4 is my favourite platform this gen (by far) but the Xbone team are actually doing good things now and the Xbox One X will innevitably become my platform of choice for third party titles going forwards (when I pick one up next year in white).

It's annoying that Phil Spencer and co don't give two flying hoots about first party software but, hell, I'm platform agnostic so I always have my PS4 for those titles.

I always get a chuckle out of people who were not bright enough to realize that I wasn’t the person who made the original post.

Just saying.

Well HOW DARE YOU!

Nah. Nah don't care. I'm pumped for the X, but if criticism like this leads to more games, lets do it!

Bad timing. With so many kids swinging right, VR is seem by many as another tool of marxism and are just saying no.

Back in the day (when the site was more prominent), there were some who assumed EvAv was getting kickbacks from Microsoft because of how hard he was shilling for the 360. I don't think he was, but it was certainly at fanboy levels of fanaticism.

He's pulled an about-face with this generation, but the fanaticism is just as strong; he's humping Sony's leg, now.

Just saying.
It still lines up perfectly with your narrative, though.

Just sayin'.

(For the record, I thought it was pretty funny.)

They absolutely could be. They dropped the ball so badly this gen, i'm not sure if they recover. The X is certainly not going to help them not without any games to sell it. Only exclusive content can start to dig them out of the hole they are in and they have none right now.

They need a generation reset but this gen may run for a long time now both companies released upgrade consoles which leaves MS looking at years in a distant second or even third place as the Switch is now doing gangbuster numbers and could easily overhaul them.

Hilarious thread.

MS was leading with x360 and then completely screwed themselves over with design on Xbone: Name, Performance, original always-online vision. Lesson to learn: Never give the marketing guys the most power as stakeholders. You will get a product noone wants.
Meanwhile, Mark Cerny made a home run for PS4.

There is virtually no reason at all to own an XB1, and not much more reason to own a PS4. Nor is the Switch offering terribly much in the way of reason to buy.

Worst console generation in my lifetime.

The only reason I can see you saying that is the lack of tennis games. But rejoice! A good one is coming for PS4 next year.

When people expect you to contribute to the hive mind, and you don't, it doesn't compute to the lemmings. Expect either zero replies, or many that are full of fabulous strawmen. Clear minded adults, who are leaders and not followers, are never afraid to go against the flow.

But in all seriousness, I'm pumped to play some tennis on my PS4 Pro.

lol. The XB1 is a terrible console. As a piece of tech it's pretty well built, but as a device that offers unique experiences, it's garbage.

This message brought to you by an Xbox FANBOY who owned the original, three extra crispies (I mean, 360s), and hundreds upon hundreds of digital and disc-based games, as well as accessories galore. We also own an XB1...gifted to us and set as a home console, so we don't have to buy any actual games, lol. Not that there's much we would bother with that I can't get on PC.

#SoSad.

The Switch is the only console I'd be excited about this generation. To play games anywhere, but there are about 6-7 titles anounced or released that I'd really enjoy playing.

Everything else is PC. Honestly, that's where it's at. Switch could supplement. It'd be hard to miss out on Zelda:BotW, Mario Odyssey, Project Octopath Traveler, Xenoblade 2, and the eventual Metroid Prime 4. But not quite the end of the world being that my PC will have all I want and more until the end of time. I already have almost 800 games on steam. I could never buy another game again and be fine.

1. PC
2. Switch

3. PS4




4: Xbone/XboneX (ill buy your "exclusives" for my PC though)
