Microsoft Xbox One: First impressions preview - itproportal

James Laird writes: "Let's start with a very necessary editorial disclaimer: My name is James, and I'm a PlayStation fanboy. I have owned every iteration of Sony's console and, as a result, tended to sneer at its chief rival, the Xbox. All of which makes it something of a surprise that I walked away from an exclusive preview of Microsoft's forthcoming Xbox One hugely impressed.

My time with the Xbox One was focused on the gaming experience, and I worked my way across five big name launch titles: FIFA 14, Ryse: Son of Rome, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, and Forza Motorsport 5. Each game was eye-catching in its own way and showed off the next-gen console's turbo-charged hardware (8GB of DDR3 RAM being the focal point), but the two standouts for me were Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5."

That's all you could ask for...a fair unbiased opinion. The X1 is great. I got 2 on preorder now. One for me and a family member. Then I'll immediately mod my 360 and work on getting a PS4 right after Christmas.

Im gonna get a ps4 first, then when MS puts their prices down, I'll get an xbone

Keep them both, then you can have more tflops than the PS4 fans that like to talk about such things :)

How odd. This almost reads like an advert. Maybe it's just the writers style. Be interesting to know a little more about the background.

halo 5 1080p runz 60 per sec rpg element include open world epic

Halo 5 is definitely going to be great.
With 343i's first game out of the way and their team fully built up, I think the future for Halo is bright.

I just hope they get the mp perfect next time. And halo 5 forge better include a forge world for us on day 1.

If Halo 5 is open world w/ rumored RPG elements...


i.e. - That would be amazing.
