When did Microsoft, stop caring about Gamers? (don't tell me that the Casual centric Unveil, of the x1 was anything but... hell, support has died...
I watch E3 every year and I must have missed Loco cycle and Crimson Dragon every time because I honestly don't remember them. I'm actually still not interested in them even on the XB1. None of those games are really system sellers (Ryse arguably is now) so I highly doubt anyone would've bought an Xbox 360 for those games. Matt, I'm glad you have a PC, but many console gamers don't. I didn't until this year, so I was glad when I could play Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, Metro 2033, Fable 3, and the Witcher 2 on my 360. All excellent games and I liked Fable 3 (although I hate that motion blur effect). Regardless of whether they are on PC, they are still console exclusive to Xbox 360. I see what you're saying and Sony's first party devs have done a great job with games like Uncharted, Killzone, Heavy Rain, TLOU, etc. But Xbox has great games also, like the ones I've listed above and of course Halo, Gears, and Forza. Plus the Xbox 360 further improved the industry with things like setting the standard for online gaming on consoles, games on demand, indie games, Xbox Live Arcade games, achievements, downloading game demos and videos, apps, streaming services on consoles, downloading movies on consoles. All things that are standard today and have improved consoles as we know it. I try to be a fan of games first and consoles second, so I also have a PS3 for some of their great exclusives. The 360 is my main console of choice though. I like the controller better, the UI, certain apps like HBO GO, Xbox Video and music, occasional Halo sessions with my friends from college and plenty of other games. Just my preference. I think we can agree to disagree though and respect the fact that we prefer different consoles. Besides, no matter which side of the console you are on, this next gen is going to be fantastic. Never been a better time to be a gamer imo

@madpuppy lighten up man. I was actually just kidding when I called you a mouth breather. Didn't mean to sound like a dick, but I just thought it was funny. Sorry if I offended though. Having said that, I think that people got really carried away with all of the backlash to the XB1. You have seen Steam sales haven't you? Or Netflix or Epix, HBO GO, Amazon Prime Video? Digital distribution is the way of the future. It's more convenient, cheaper, etc. We already do this for music, movies and books, so why not games? Steam has paved the way for the future with their affordable games model. Or what about a subscription service where you can rent games digitally or pay a yearly fee for unlimited digital games. And you could have still sold your physical games back to GameStop with the Xbox One. When we actually see all these bad things happen, then I will stop supporting MS, but until then, I'm thinking outside of the box and staying off of the bandwagon

@matthew Bryant Wrong. There was a class action lawsuit but that wasn't the reason for the warranty

And a lot of PS fans don't give Xbox credit for games like Splinter Cell, Fable 3, The Witcher 2, Metro 2033, and Minecraft just because they are on PC, but many console gamers don't have a PC and those games aren't on PS. There really isn't a shortage of games on the 360.

@matthew bryant Matt, not trying to sound like a di*k, but who cares if those games were announced 3 years ago and for the 360. The only one I can think of is Ryse, which was originally a Kinect game and was reimagined (thankfully) into an Xbox One game. Which also contradicts your point of them just pushing deadlines. And that is major speculation just saying that most of the billion is going towards only Titanfall and DR3. And Titanfall is also coming out for 360 so they are still supporting it. They've said they will support it for a long time, but I'll be mostly just interested in the XB1 after November. The only exclusives PS3 has had recently that are good are TLOU and Beyond: 2 souls. Sony cranks out a lot of exclusives that are frankly, not that interesting to me. PS does do a great job with their instant games collection, but a lot of that is making up for the hack and lagging behind in the online department most of the last gen.

@ mudpuppy Lol! This is exactly the absurd attitude towards MS and XB1 that I was talking about. Idk what exactly you think MS tried to do, but this is what actually happened: MS tried to make an online console (it is 2013 after all). With this online console, you could buy games either online or at a retail store. Once installed, you would never need the disk again. You could access all of your games from anyone's house that had an Xbox One simply and seamlessly. Up to 10 members of your family and friends could also access your library remotely. Once you were done with the game you could either sell it back to Gamestop or gift it to someone else. The gifting was only available once to prevent everyone from buying only 1 copy of a game and gifting it electronically all over the place. The only requirement for all of this truly next gen awesomeness was that your console would need to check in online once every 24 hours, or once every hour if you were playing remotely. In this day in age, where nearly everyone has the internet, this actually does seem feasible. The only problem was that many, many simpletons and fanboys saw this as "screwing everyone over" because they just couldn't wrap their heads around a concept that was slightly different from what they were used to. Ironically, they all took to complaining about it on the internet, not realizing that the amount of kilobytes used by their complaints was actually far more than what was needed for the online check in. Sadly, there are still a few poor souls left on this planet without the internet; but the amount of people that don't have the internet and also play next gen games is so small that MS figured it was worth the shot. These are the only people that may have been "screwed over" enough to the point that they simply could not have an Xbox One. Congratulations are in order, however. You and your unwashed, mouth breathing ilk have managed to keep us back in the stone age for at least one more generation. I hope I've done a good enough job conveying a message that should have been obvious from the beginning, but I am available to answer any additional questions should they arise. Gods speed and best of luck in all of your future endeavors.

MS invested over $1 billion in games with the XB1 and have more games in development than at any other time in the Xbox's life. Just because XB1 does everything else does not mean that it doesn't have amazing games. It has the best games right now imo

I think you got your games backwards, lol. Those are Xbox One games.

That's fair. Your preferences are different than mine and that is fine. As a 31 year old gamer, I admit that my needs/wants have changed. I like all of the navigation features and having my Xbox taking care of pretty much everything. I also have family living in other states, so to be able to just tell it to Skype them will be great. Will I play Kinect only games? Most likely not. But I'm optimistic that devs can find ways to complement hardcore games in ways that we haven't seen before, such as touching your temple to activate night vision. I'm also pretty excited for the games that we've seen so far. I personally think that XB1 has the stronger exclusive line up so far. Again, these are just my opinions and preferences and I respect that yours are different.

Plus Xbox One has directX 11 optimization. I think games will run very similarly with also the added benefit of Kinect. XB1 for me
