CCC says: "As expected, the opinionated bunch that is the gamer population has already begun rallying their console morale and taking jabs at the opposition, with their manufacturer’s banner in tow. However, the solution to next-gen divisiveness cannot be reached through familiar tactics. The loyalty of even the most die-hard fanboys has been called into question given the drastic turns that Sony and Microsoft have taken; launch lineups are less first-party based than in the past, so franchise exclusivity is no longer as pivotal, and raw hardware horsepower is no longer relevant given the identical x86 infrastructures of the Xbox One and PS4. As a result, we are left with fewer values with which to critique the two competing systems. After all, we’re still several months away from being able to play them ourselves, but someone has to win, right?"
