Looking pretty great so far. Not sure I'd buy one as a primary games console but as a media/games machine I can see this being an attractive system. For me I'm sticking to PS4 first but can see myself getting an XONE next year at some point.
It's possible that Sony has bought the rights to Crash from Activision. But I don't think that's something they'd be after, mascot platformers have proven to be big money these last few years. Having said that I would go mad with nostalgia if this did happen.
If I'm honest, I used to. Then I watched the P4 endurance run and decided not to be so presumptuous about the themes of games that adopt that art style. It's still not my favourite art style but I'll put up with it if the game's worth it.
I will always have a backlog, I just need to accept that I barely have any time to play video games, yet I feel compelled to play all the games that people are talking about/get good scores. This gen will be no different, but I have to say my backlog from last gen is SIGNIFICANT. Guess that's growing up and getting a job for you.
