That matters because the comment isnt coming from someone that doesn't even have an XBL Gamertag. My Day One Xbox One is on every single day as my TV portal and YouTube box. If there were any 1st party games I wanted to play, I wouldn't be turning on my PS4 to play everything. Sure, if it's all you have, you have plenty to do (multi-plats).


If Microsoft invested more into developing exclusive content from 2013-2016 then you’re just wrong, and every indication is that Sony was no more invested in software development than Microsoft in that time.
Sony and Microsoft are probably still making virtually identical investments into new software, but Microsoft is keeping more if it hidden until closer to release, e.g. Forza 7 launched within 4 months of the reveal. That kind of marketing is ideal for making maximum impact in the time before release.

Huh? I'm wrong that I haven't found more than a game or two since 2013 making me want to play my Xbox One? I realize it's a matter of preference in games. The options on Xbox One are limited. I'm sorry... kfhappy kfhappy

I'm a businessman, and even I can't parse out anything out of that paragraph which would explain how Microsoft has absolved itself of shitting the bed so badly on first party content since the release of the Xbox One. Flops and cancellations are the name of the game.

They have a first party problem.

Phil Spencer directly admitted this today, so..,he's not even trying to spin it. Big move from P3. I like him.

The good news is that I’ve secured a Project Scorpio Edition a day after launch without reserving or pre-ordering or going to midnight sales. The bad news is that I haven’t changed my ways.

Kidding. The new PS4-esque hybrid form factor, hiding the transformer, and the stand helped me make my mind.

I have a question that I'm sure has been answered before, and I probably know the answer to as well, but if people buying or already owning the OG One of the One S, without plans of upgrading, will they still be hit with the extra downloads for the X enhanced games? I'd assume it's an auto download like the updates for the Pro, but just curious as nobody is talking about original hard drive space, just space being taken up on the X.

Be careful with the vertical stand. It seems very easy to slide it in and out of place

I'm pretty sure you don't have to download the 4K assets if you don't want to.

My stand feels firm. Not the toughest lock-in, but not the weakest either. There's good friction from the console weight. I'm glad I went with this one, having the stand, instead of the regular edition without. But the "Project Scorpio" stencil is nothing to write home about. That looks lazy and obligatory rather than done with a designer's eye.

It’s called “willful Ignorance”, and you’ve bought into the never-ending stream of hate the Media has for Microsoft.

Now got look at the actual number of games published by each company on PS4 and Xbox One from 2013-2016.
2013 and 2014 are absolutely PATHETIC years for Sony, and 2015 has nothing to compete with Halo 5, in the words of Shuhei Yoshida himself:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015- ... laystation
How do you think your line-up compares to Microsoft's line-up this Christmas?

Shuhei Yoshida: I wouldn't do so! [laughs] People wouldn't just look at the first party line-up when they're making a purchase decision.


Then 2016 was actually a better year for Microsoft overall with the one exception that Uncharted 4 was (and remains) Sony’s most successful game this generation.

That Shu quote is pretty funny considering the rhetoric you hear from PS4 fanboys being "exclusives sell consoles!!" If that was really the case then every PS exclusive should be in the 50 mill plus sold range.

What you don’t see in pictures or videos is that the top side of the console has a very shallow squared dimpling effect. So this isn’t just a plain sheet of plastic. This looks like serious kit and a confident player and this is what the face of Xbox One should have been all along.
