OK so I could go on,now for next gen consoles im sorry but xb1 just isnt,its a half hearted attemp,with constant broken promises and lies by MS,it aint a gaming machine.i am gutted,I have stood loyal to MS for years,and supported how xb1 is the better machine,how wrong I was.ive got a console that is 4 times as fast,4 times better with everything,online co,op games..many mmos...loads of pc steam titles already,free games without huge paywalls every month,and graphics and audio that kick the xb1 back into the dark ages.
Im not giving up on xb1 but titanfall and halo are the only reasons im not selling.from soley xb1 to ps4 for exclusives,the tables have turned and rolls reversed.
This not an attack on xb1,but definitly a description of how insulted we have all been by microsoft,that I am extremely angry about, the xb1 costs so much more to game and have quality games than the ps4.
Lol,yes I will embrace your pitch forks and fire and burning at the cross.
