I thought Halo and Gears of War was the legitimate reason to buy an Xbox One..

I bought mine with Halo and Forza in mind and I do love those games with a passion, However if I could now peform some sort of "quantum break" of my own, I'd go back in time and buy a ps4...

Loktai2548d ago

Hey, could use your time to work some OT and just buy one. ;)

lfc_4eva2548d ago

Make sure you have two jobs before buying ;-)

Irishguy952548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

I also regret buying an Xbone.

Scalebound, Bloodborne. Literally the only two reasons to own either console for me. And scalebound ain't even proven itself. It oculd turn out **** too.

I can see people will moan about Quantum breaks length, but if we look through their history I wonder what they said when that piece of **** the order came out.

The two consoles have had underwhelming releases in general. Halo 5 for me wasn't that good, just average. Kilzone shadowfall was meh, Ryse sucked, Infamous second son was a let down. The list goes on with mediocrity. And even if I had bought another PC, not much exclusives there.

Thus we are left with the multiplats. Which yet again have dominated proving the exclusive war a waste of well, everything.

basically...Whichever console you get:

Xbox live has better 'free' games right now. Than Ps+
Ps4 has a good VR system coming out soon.
The majority of your time will be spent on multiplats.

Shit generation so far to be honest.

Well, not really fair to say generation...

I really liked

The witcher 3
Dying light
Rocket league
Fallout 4
Titanfall was okay, it simply needs..more features

Things I WILL enjoy
Bloodborne(I love all souls games)
Xenoblade X

I'm looking forward to
Horizon Zero dawn
Dishonored 2
Crackdown 3
FF7 Remake
No mans sky
MGS5 was okay but a bit of a let down
Uncharted, even though its more the same(Would prefer a new IP or else Last of us 2, new IP preferred because ND can do new ips and make them feel...'new')

Crimzon2548d ago

Yup, Irishguy95 pretty much summed-up this generation perfectly. I don't have an Xbox One so can't comment on the quality of exclusives but on the PS4 yeah, it's absolute garbage aside from Bloodborne. It's completely different from last generation where the exclusives were the cream of the crop and real reasons to actually own hardware.

EddieNX 2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

@Irish I agree ! I do like my XBone and I think the controller is a LOT better than Ps4's . I will probably soon trade my XB and get a PS4 so I don't miss out on exclusives. I want a PsVR as well...

candystop2548d ago

I agree with Irish guy and really hope that UC, crackdown 3 and gears do something that amazes me. I'm currently checking out VR with my Samsung gear and can't find 1 game that satisfies my appetite. Games are coming to other devices as well as this one but I do feel gaming has sort of sucked lately. I'm currently only playing RB6 from time to time along with gems of wars and that's it.

EddieNX 2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

@Haydothepotato. The Ps4 has some killer exclusives coming all fanboy prejudce aside. I'm a Nintendo fan. With better performing multiplats, Better exclusives an PsvR maybe it would be the best thing for me to do. The coolest thing for me to do will to get an NX on launch day .

There is a lot I like about my XB one so I might end up with a PS4 an Xbox one and NX together. Tempting but a bit OTT

Lol funny but why would you do that??

They are. and always will be. Include Forza too.

Gaming4Life19812548d ago

halo and gears was enough and quantum break just adds to the library.

WilliamSheridan2548d ago

They ARE reasons to buy an Xbox and this is yet another one.

Both systems have great exclusives this gen. I think it makes sense to get both systems.

BlackTar1872548d ago

Why would anyone disagree with this post. I know I'm a Sony fan but the core of me is a gamer first as it should be for anyone who visits a dedicated hobby site for video games. On top of it all remedy is damn good at making games.

WilliamSheridan2548d ago

The fanboy hate is real on this site. I've tested it out...

If I comment pro Microsoft, I lose bubbles and get reported.

If I commitment pro Sony, I gain bubbles and praise.

Comment supporting both, it's just as bad as being pro Microsoft.

This gen has a really different feel than any other I've experienced.

Haru2547d ago

What exclusives? Quantum break Scalebound Gears 4 and Forza are all coming to PC, You can't say the same thing about Uncharted 4 Ratchet and Clank Dreams The last Guardian Horizon zero at dawn and Gran turismo tho can you?

Prubar2548d ago

On its own? Depends on who you talk to. But throw in KI, Halo, Sunset overdrive and it's a no brainer.

mark_parch2547d ago

the best console exclusives this gen for me are bloodborne, killer instinct, forza horizon 2, ori and the blind forest, titanfall and tomb raider (timed). games that I think are ok halo 5, sunset overdrive, infamous and quantum break

ScorpiusX2548d ago

Their is no issue with more choices . lol

DonkeyWalrus2548d ago

In my opinion Halo is no longer a good reason to own an Xbox as the quality of Halo titles has gone way down. As a long time Halo fan, Halo 4 and 5 were both major disappointments. Not happy with most of 343's decisions and not interested in Halo 6, or whatever they end up calling it.

Umm, is everyone being deliberately stupid here?

QB is not an exclusive. It doesn't matter how good the game is, I can play it on my PC so it isn't a reason to own an xbone.

sammarshall1022547d ago

No beast PC in my home

It's exclusive in my situation along with many others ;)

DLConspiracy2547d ago

Then I'm sure you never buy multiplat titles on either console? As you should only play them on PC right?

Saijahn2547d ago

Halo 5 is mediocre honestly, and Gears of War 4 hasn't been released yet.

Gazondaily2547d ago

Halo 5 and its MP puts so many shooters to shame this gen.

Utalkin2me2547d ago (Edited 2547d ago )


Talking about people giving miss info. Maybe you should play the game before spouting wrong information. There is only 1 ending.

Phar0ahad32547d ago (Edited 2547d ago )

Inly difference is the Order is a better game...more intriguing, better looking, better acting, better story, more original weapons...

3-4-52547d ago

* I already own a XB1 but this game doesn't interest me at all.

I'm waiting for E3.

Kavorklestein2545d ago

Maybe if the main character had spiky hair and had ridiculous EVERYTHING you might be interested?

AngelicIceDiamond2548d ago

Don't need the same games such as Halo, Gears or Forza to sell the X1 they need something new and I fully back new and different. For years I've been tired of the same ol' games running Xbox. Nope, its time for a change up and I welcome change.

So how about Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Ori, D4, Sunset Overdrive, Killer Instinct, Max and the Curse of the Brotherhood

Hoffmann2548d ago

Nah thank you..its not a reason to buy an xb1..but I might pick it up on pc someday.

AngelicIceDiamond2548d ago

Well yoy never planned, or ever planning on buying an Xbox anyway no matter what games release on it. So I don't know what you're trying to say.

Sciurus_vulgaris2548d ago

It is weird how the people most concerned about Xbox and it's games are the ones that hate the console the most. Also when Xbox games come to PC, magically the 'concerned' gamers suddenly have gaming PCs and interest in franchises they previously trashed. I still have play Quantum and have yet to form an opinion of the game.

2548d ago
Hoffmann2547d ago

That is not true.

I buy game consoles depending on the games. Thats why I had an xbox before and also Nintendo consoles. The current xbox just does not have anything I really "need" to have yet.

TheGreatGamer2548d ago

I doubt any game Microsoft release will ever convince fanboys like you to pick up the competition's console. Alas, if only everyone could see the benefits of owning all consoles.

rdgneoz32548d ago

If you have a good PC and it comes out on the PC (like Quantum), the only reason to "pick up the competition's console" is from a sh!tty port.

tuglu_pati2548d ago

"If you have a good PC..."

you see that's the thing, not everyone has a a PC capable of playing this games.

cooperdnizzle2548d ago


That is why he said "if" People sometimes.

starchild2548d ago

Maybe not a reason for you, but it might be a reason for those that like the game.

Magnes2548d ago

Wow AngieD is in attack mode cool your jets, just because they don't share your opinion you don't get to dismiss them sheeesh.

AngelicIceDiamond2548d ago

Fanboys only have one opinion. Clearly Hoff....nvm no point in explaining. You can't see it.

Magnes2547d ago

@angelic Honestly I do see it but I watch you do this damage control in these type of article's all the time. Let em have their say you have yours the down votes speak more than you filling up the comment section letting them bait you in.

AngelicIceDiamond2547d ago

@Magnes No damage control, I just have a problem with fanboys talkin trash about a game they have no interest in or ever planning on picking up, ever. Breaking up the comment section with their fanboyism. How come I can't talk about this game or any other Xbox game in, well, semi peace at least like the other platforms. The other consoles don't get this much hate especially ps articles.

Downvotes don't mean much. When you express excitement or praise about a game the fanboys will come in and downvote you. Exhibit A.

Naw there's no bait, its simply shutting them down because its childish behavior. And you'll see them again when more Xbox games release. That's the nature of it I can't even have a decent discussion on here. Don't say its constructive criticism either (far, far from it) when you KNOW they're the offense force.

I have the game now and I'm pretty early into it its ok so far. But since I've played it fanboys opinions are really gonna be redundant, pointless, because I played it and they haven't, and never will so all that talk is just loud noise like nails to a chalk board. This is fanboys we're talking about here why am I explaining this? Just flip the scenario and maybe you'll understand a little better.

DLConspiracy2547d ago

If you own a single multiplat game on your PS4 then you would have just proved yourself wrong. As you only buy multiplat games for PC.

TheGreatGamer2548d ago

Not everyone can (1) afford a capable gaming PC or (2) get into PC gaming and prefer simplicity of consoles. Therefore, it's still a legitimate reason to get an Xbox One for many.

Xx_Pistol_xX2548d ago

If you can buy a 300-400 dollar console you can buy a PC.

DonkeyWalrus2548d ago

Pistol it's not as simple as just buying a PC. PC gaming requires more upkeep and general technical knowledge. The reason a lot of people prefer consoles is because with a console you just plug it right in and can expect any game you buy for that console to work. With PC you have to make sure you're meeting at least the minimum recommended specs, you have to make upgrades more frequently, it's just a bit more complicated than console gaming.

Also, how does being able to afford a $300-400 console mean one could afford a high end PC rig capable of running all the latest games at high graphical settings?

Magnes2548d ago

I'm pretty sure you don't need a killer rig to play xb1 games like QB.

343_Guilty_Spark2548d ago

Potato build aint running this bub.
