My Xbox One Personal Opinion
You guys asked for it so here it is.
This may be a bit out of whack since I tend to type what I’m thinking and drift off in thought. So get ready for my ramblings.
My thoughts on the Xbox One.
First off I was a huge fan of the Xbox 360 since launch, but after losing my job at GameStop in 2011 due to a store closing blah blah blah, anyway after being unemployed for nearly 8 months, I couldn’t afford Xbox Live so I decided to sell all my 360 stuff and move back over to PS3.
I made the move because of better exclusives IMO of course, like Uncharted, God of War, Heavy Rain, Journey & so on. Anywhoo I believe my main reason I moved on was because I couldn’t watch Netflix.
Okay moving on to the Xbox One.. so far I’m not 100% sure about the new console. Why you ask? Well until I know more about the new Xbox Live service I have very low interest in it and amongst other things.
Not many seem to like the new look of the console but I like it. Looks good. I also like the fact that they moved up the Guide Button on the controller. A nice touch.
However I feel that Xbox One is what they were trying to accomplish with the 360 with all the new features to me it just seems like another XB360. I didn’t get the ‘wow’ feeling when I first seen the 360.
Everything sounds promising, but one things gets me.. Xbox One games will require a one-time activation code.
You can read up on that via Joystiq if you really want to know more of what I’m talking about.
Games I’m getting burned out of Halo, Gears, Call of Duty, and whatever else they keep spawning. I don’t mind too much about Assassin’s Creed series but lets be honest here, they just need to end it and move on.
Also I feel that there will more even more sequels that will be milked, and I’m sure you know what I mean. CoD, Battlefield, Assassin’s Creed and perhaps even Watch_Dogs. I just want new IPs not the same crap every year.
I’m just really not sure I how feel just yet, I may change my mind when E3 ends.
My final verdict is I’m personally not interested 100% in the Xbox One. I think that PS4 has a much better chance of making a comeback, but I will voice my opinions on the PS4 after E3 once we learn more about it.
Will I get an Xbox One at launch? At this moment in time nah, probably not. As of now I’m not impressed. but then again I’ll most likely get it anyway despite my thoughts, because I’m a gamer and I like games.
