I honestly don't recall the last time I bought a hard copy of a PC game. I think it might have been Spore or Tabula Rasa.

How the hell did PS4 come out on top when X1X rips it a new one... even the Pro. Xbox is fixed, come back people.

Games. Xbox One X is a powerful console, but MS blew it this time around with in-house development.

A combination of the following:

* Most peoples friends have already migrated to playstation so new customers follow them.

* XBox has no exclusive content that's worth a dam and hardly any on the horizon.

* Microsoft alienated customers from the outset with the xbone. They tried to force motion controls, kill second hand titles, forced always online. Contrary to popular belief, people aren't stupid and people do remember when you try to fuck them over.

So i think lots of people simply think...fuck xbox. This will only change given enough time and a huge reason (games).

I own an X1, and wish I would have went the PS4 route. Why? Games. The PS4 has more, and better exclusive titles. Oh, and Sony finally made a good controller too.

A-fucking-men! Crested the 150hr gametime mark last night, and am still enjoying it every time I load it up. Each hunt feels like a true boss fight that can go sideways fast (well, almost...Great Jagras can't help itself). Now with new *FREE* content added today...oh my. Going to be a lot of fun for a long time to come.

It is hilarious how I went from loving the Xbox S (Small) controller, then the Xbox 360 controller and now prefer the PS4 controller overall. The Xbox One controller just doesn't feel right. The analog stocks are too tall and the trigger buttons are too plastic-y.
