First party, second party and exclusives have ALWAYS defined the image of console. Because no matter how powerful of a console you have, you cannot have those fore mentioned games on that console. And this whole "I just like third party games" to justify an Xbox One (not to say that there aren't other reasons that make the One worth the purchase) is a very sorry excuse. Easily, Sony's console (for example) offers exclusive titles that are also of the same genres as those third parties games. So you get more game, more choices.
It's sad if you and others think that an expense of mere $200 - $500 has to be justified.
Of course I do. I just spent $250 on domed monkey bars and a Slackline for my daughter and friends. It surely didn't go towards an Xbox. And my wife would have bought me a Switch for my birthday if we hadn't just bought a $1500 Sony 4K HDR television.
So so so much sadness...
And let me make it very clear that we will be just as happy without this stuff.
