I was very harsh after the original XBONE event, MS really messed up their message in my opinion. We all know how it went: too much TV, to much Kinect, to much BS really.
Anyway, Both consoles are out, and after watching lengthy sessions of both consoles I ended up buying a XBONE today.
Why a XBONE!? well this are my reasons:
1- Software Software Software: PS4 is a sexy powerful machine, and SONY is a excellent hardware manufacture, however when I'm playing video games I care about Software. As much as I like to shit on MS, they know how to make software and services, SkyDrive is pretty ballers. I bet my ass MS has a horde of developers iterating on the Xbone OS already. Remember this:
2-The Cloud(AKA the internet) Watching the Giantbomb's PS4 cast was kind of a downer, Dawg SONY is building their shit in the same old shit. I think that is going to bite them in the mid/long term. While I think MS is stretching their cloud marketing a bit to much, Make no mistake having a powerful back end for cloud apps and services is key.
3-Games: Dead Rising and Killer Instinct are the things I'm the most interested in. Killzone looks fine, but hee I don't know. Multiplayer maps that look like high end malls... no thanks I liked Killzone when it was old, rusty, gritty, and WW2-ish. Also ya know Titan Fall! its coming yoo
4-Kinect: So this is weird, because I've done nothing but hate the stupid kinect for years by now... Said so, even if kinect sole reason to exist was to put code cards into an Xbone, that would be more than enough. Seriously I can't express how wonderful is not having to write a stupid Y6NK-23ER "··$$%·$%FUCK OFF code anymore.
So that's it lads: Don't get me wrong I love all consoles, all videogames, and wish them tons of sales to all of them. This industry needs a catch of fresh air, and it is good to see both consoles having compelling reasons to be bough. This is not a console warz bait, I'm just happy my consumerist-self figure it out what to buy, anyway if you angry redirect yourself to neogaf and take all banderas memes there.
