I finally took the plunge. After months of indecision and focusing on the PS4, this weekend I placed an order for the Xbox One, Day One Edition with FIFA14. FIFA 14 being the pushing decision and game.
I am currently a PS3 owner with PSN+, and a stack of PS titles. I committed this generation to Sony and feel like I have enjoyed what there was to offer. From Uncharted to Heavy Rain, the games have been great. The problem is that every year we (my brother and I) buy FIFA. Up till the launch of FIFA14 we were contempt with waiting till the next gen and had PS4 at the top of the list.
With the lack of launch games on either console we started to look at the games that we play consistently and realised that the Xbox One was the better console for us. All of my friends who are getting a new console are getting Xbox One's, they will all have FIFA14. Titanfall is the only next gen game which has my attention, and most third party games though heavily being pushed on PS4 are also coming to the Xbox One.
Yes the console is more expensive, Yes it may be a little less powerful but over the first year of the consoles life I am starting to see how, games wise, it has a little something on the PS4. Do not get me wrong I am going to miss PSN+; It has opened me to so many games that I normally would missed, but I cannot see Microsoft abandoning Xbox Live for entertainment purposes only. People forget the on the PS3 the only real indie game that held its own was Journey and that was about it.
So there we have it, I am looking forward to getting my hands on next gen consoles, and maybe next year if there is a PS4 title that intrigues me I may save up and get a PS4, but for time being with both consoles being so equal, it has come down to what games I am going to be playing over the next 6 months and the people I will be playing them with. And yes Watchdogs being delayed has played a massive part in my decision.
