I've owned two 360's. I've fought the Covenant, I've bleed with my brothers on Sera, and visited Albion. I gave up the last X machine a little after the release of the Kinect. Why? It's not because I didn't want it anymore, IT no longer wanted me.
That was the rebirth of the Xbox, a new beginning a time when Nintendo was king of sales, and both Microsoft and Sony wanted in on the action. The Playstation Move failed, because Sony choose the safe route, one that stayed loyal to their fan base and at the same time tried to lower the average age of their gamers. Microsoft at first seemed that they choose the same thing, we all laughed at the Kinect, thinking I was a harmless toy, and just like the Wii Remote before it, that toy changed a brand forever.
Back in February Sony showed us the PS4 (sort of) and many games with it. There was a game for every type of gamer out there. Microsoft showed us the new Kinect, or “Kinect 2.0 TV ONE” to be more precise. An excellent rival for Apple TV and any other type of media box out there but not for the PS4, no Microsoft made it clear that gamers are the sort of people that like to watch TV while playing and that Halo would be cooler as a TV series rather than a new game. Also every gamer out there loves ESPN and American football. I always wanted 3 O.S.'s on my console and dreamed of the day I say goodnight to grandma while killing aliens. I pride myself on being a hardcore gamer, I love the industry, I've been here almost from the start and I have no intention of leaving no matter how much companies like Nintendo and Microsoft, who once cared for me and my needs and I rewarded them with money and trust, even when that trust was put to the test (RROD, Wii etc.), try to sell my passion, my hobby to some stupid f**k that plays only COD and Fifa (or anyother generic sports game that is launched every year with nothing new to bring to the table), and was wet dreams about the high score he made in Dance Central and Fruit Ninja.
There isn't going to be a next-gen war! The PS4 and the Xbox ONE are on two different battlefields.
Microsoft, with the Kinect you pushed me away, but with the Xbox ONE you lost me forever. I wish you luck in the future in all you projects, we were friends once and I will cherish those moments forever.
