As a PS4 owner, I went to three Best Buy stores to try and take advantage of the $150 console trade in offer but no stores had the Sunset Overdrive bundle. If any store I went to had the black and white XboxOne in stock, I would have taken the plunge.

It's now a battle between Wii U and XboxOne. If Wii U drops below $199, I'm in. If XboxOne gets more of those sweet Sunset Overdrive bundles out this holiday, color me a multi-console owner again. #27
I can't wait for that as well, Orbilator. This game is only looking to get better once they get everything put in place. #11.1
Great to hear, Bennibop! Something that I didn't even go into in the article is that I've been remote playing the drift events on my Vita AND that I've been sitting about 2 feet away from my 60" television to get my level of immersion up.

Seriously, this game is one of the best racing experiences to be had and makes me look forward to VR racing. Imagine how crazy THAT'S going to be. #1.3
Wow, why is every opinion here getting disagreed with? I agree with you Rooted_Dust and feel that the only people you can trust with giving you an honest review are PEOPLE. Talk to your friends or create your own group to share in the best pastime in the past 40 years. #6.1
No idea why you are being disagreed with here. I've been in the industry since 1999 and have only had a handful of shows fully paid for in that time frame.

Great article by the way. #5.1.1
Amen to that! I scrolled down in the comments for some sanity and finally found it...on the last comment.

Don't take sites like Gawker, iO9 and ESPECIALLY POLYGON as they are more about crafting a story (or a headline) than they are about revealing the truth. #20.1
Now I've got a present baking in the oven, got my baubles wrapped and have spent the last hour trying to hang a cake...oh crap...I don't think I read the directions properly.

If I got that $50, I promise to invest in a "Following Instructions for Dummies" book...or DriveClub...

...let me just say that I will try to use this gift card for good instead of evil. #61
My favorite games for story have been the ones found in titles like "Journey", "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus". In the medium of games, I personally feel that "minimal dialog made up by tons of experience" is key.

I have had more memorable stories from games like WoW, FF XIV, Rainbow Six and others through experiences I have had with the gameplay. Taking down a huge creature, resurrecting a friend moments before the end of a bat... #3.2.1
I was a HUGE fan of the first Borderlands and absolutely loved playing the game with friends. Even the intro movie was flipping hilarious.

Picking up with Borderlands 2, I enjoyed that title, but I didn't have the same level of enjoyment as the first. Not saying it was a bad game by any stretch, but definitely not as laugh out loud enjoyable as the first.

All that said, the writing in both Borderlands is superlative to that of Destiny but I've al... #3.3
Wait, what? We generally don't hate on things so I'm genuinely curious as to whom you are referring to. Also, we were big fans of CoD4 and look forward to what is coming out in November.

From everything we've seen the new CoD is looking good thus far. #2.1
It's a bit of a stretch with the #GamerGate thread, but I've always known that any time you scratch the surface of the inner circle of games news that there's a price to be paid. Case in point, I still remember when Strength Gamer was verbally attacked on Twitter by Ben Kuchera over a benign tweet about 'possible nepotism' in the press.

I'm up to level 14 and have enjoyed 90% of my experience with Destiny thus far. Sure, there may be issues with the... #1.1
I never did like that "gate" moniker as it shows a lack of creativity in the media. Personally, I'd use something more like "#TheGameisUp", "#Gamesmageddon" or "#RedRingsExposed" for the last few weeks, but I'm not in the position to make those kinds of decisions.

That said, I only used it as it's become part of the vernacular in the past few weeks and I completely agree with the stupidity of 'GATE'-ing on everything. #4.1
That's great to hear, 3-4-5, and I'm glad that you are enjoying the game.

Unfortunately, I've more than 10 years of baggage surrounding this product so maybe I'm a bit more jaded than the average football consumer.

You shared some really good points in your comment but from videos like the one below, I think the running game would infuriate me to no end. #2
Direct quote from the review, "Madden NFL 15 is the football game I’ve been waiting so long for. It’s not going to turn the Madden world on its head, as there are no fundamental, earth-shattering changes here."

Gotcha! It's good to see differing opinion on this game but, for now, I'm sticking with the consensus of the game community at large that this game (along with NHL 15) isn't up to the standards of next gen.

The lack of competit... #1
Well, to be fair, this is the most anticipated title for several different groups in gaming:

For Activision this is highly anticipated as they know that Call of Duty will sell, but everyone (including their investors) is anticipating great things from Bungie and this title.

For Halo fans, this is a chance to see Bungie return to their Marathon/original Halo roots which had been compromised (as many have said) since they 'mom tested' Halo 2.

I'm about to say something semi-insane/blasphemous at the dawn of this years' football season. The NFL's exclusivity agreement with EA's Madden has squeezed any enjoyment I could have extracted for this sport in the offseason.

To earn my interest (and consumer dollar), the NFL has to either bring back competition (like NFL 2K15) or it's going to be NHL, NBA and Major League Baseball for me.

Heck, even e-sports are looking like a better... #5
Metaphorically speaking, MS has essentially cut out their eyes because they had a stomach ache.

To your point, I don't think Microsoft can afford to sit on their hands, but they have just told loyal Kinect developers, like Harmonix, that "we don't see the work you're doing as vital to our future". So now they have angered early adopters, Kinect loyalists AND their own developers with this impromptu announcement.

As much as I didn&... #36.1.2
Oh man, am I the only one that thinks this is a mistake?

Let me clarify, I don't own an Xbox One yet (still have my 360) and I'm not a Kinect owner but Microsoft was so hard lined on this issue at last year's Q1 presser, E3 event and holiday that this announcement essentially tells early adopters that this $100 add-on is now a feature we may not be supporting in the future.

I think, at this point, Microsoft should have doubled down and said, &quo... #36
Having tried the Oculus VR headset at E3, PAX and most recently at SXSW, I concur with this man. Every time I put it one of these on, it gets harder to take it off. If you haven't tried one of these, you'd be amazed what it adds to the gaming experience.

(Played Game of Thrones, Eve Online & various tech demos) #6
I think there is a very strong possibility that may still happen. Might be limited to select retailers but it makes sense to add that SKU to the lineup to cement the fact that it's an XBoxOne thang (like the old MGS4 PS3 bundle). #3.1
