I wouldn't say any of this lessens my excitement. It just makes me not want to read message boards about said consoles. I should have really known better I guess. I am still super stoked for the 15th and 22nd even if I am just getting the XB1.

This coming console launch is the first time I have been able to get a brand new shinny console on launch day so, naturally, I am super excited. In this excitement I have found my self wanting to take in every drop of news or info on my new toy (that would be the Xbox One if you're interested.) In doing this I can't help but see that there is a lot of negativity going on this console launch. Most of it is aimed at Microsoft but I have seen some thrown Sony's way as well. It baffles me to no end that people feel the need to justify their purchase or non-purchase by trashing the competition. I for one want both consoles to succeed. This should be an exciting time because, for all we know, this may be the last console generation. Don't get me wrong I have seen some posts out there that are positive. I also know that this is the internet and snark and negativity permeate through the whole of it. It's still just a little aggravating to see. I know that Microsoft and Sony both have made some missteps but I highly doubt in 2 or 3 years we will even be talking about them. Lets get excited people the new generation is here and at the very least that means new games!!!!! Which to me is very exciting!
Reading some of these posts reminds me why I abhor the term "hardcore gamer". To answer your question though most new games will be on both systems. You just have to decide which exclusives are more appealing to you. I am getting an Xbox One launch day and hopefully pick up a Playstation 4 later on.
From what I have read the cryptic tweets from Adam and Arthur have nothing to do with Microsoft. In fact, they possibly have something to do with Sony but nothing that will effect us, as consumers. As far as games not being in 1080, it is kind of a non issue for me. First off I don't plan on getting Ghosts second, I have played games in both 1080 and 720 and I couldn't tell that much a difference. Not saying there isn't one but it's just not something that ever bothered me. I think all of this rable rousing is silly. If you're getting an Xbox One then don't worry I am sure you will be happy with purchase. Same goes for those who have preordered a Playstation 4. I will never understand taking sides on the whole console war bullshit. I for one have preordered the Xbox One and I am super excited. I am also super excited for the Playstation 4 because I plan on getting one in the future. Personally I think it's an exciting time to be a video game enthusiast.
I am super pumped for the 22nd. I had considered getting a PS4 and probably will in the future but the launch games on Xbone look just a tad better then the PS4 line up. Then again I am not a huge Killzone fan. I am a little disappointed that Watch_Dogs was delayed but AC IV will fill that void.
