A lot of gamers don't care about exclusives, though . We all know them. The gamer that only plays Madden, FIFA,. Call of Duty, or what have you. They exist.

It's not severely lacking in software. Many of the marquee "AAA" games are available on both PS4 and XOne. Grand Theft Auto, Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, FIFA, Call of Duty, Madden, Battlefront, Battlefield, Shadow of Mordor, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, etc. PS4 has more noteworthy exclusive games, sure, but let's not pretend the Xbox ecosystem is barren.

And maybe people really want to play those high-profile games in 4K, and maybe they like having three generations of Xbox titles playable on one platform.

I just think we should be a little more accommodating to folks who genuinely prefer Xbox. Being in a minority doesn't make them wrong.

Well said and well written.  

I was going to reply to his post however you nailed exactly what i would have said. And if i replied, majority would just accuse me of being a bias fanboy and a hypocrit. 

The library on the X1 is massive if we include everything however many look at exclusives being the only thing that comtributes to the library size.

Again well said. Thank you.

Again with this nonsense. No one has even suggested that, yet, you find a way to make yourself a victim. No “majority” is out to get you! I’ve told you about this before. Quit trying to look for something that isn’t there.

Remember when Mattrick got attacked for saying "We have the 360 for offline play"?

He was right all along, now people are defending the One because it can play some 360 games, which is what he offered at the time. That guy was way ahead of its time actually.

Yes I'm a visionary (look at the avatar).

So if you only care about a mass amount of old games - playable on old systems, the xb1 is the best system?
Did Phil write this? Is Sam Byford secretly Aaron or Phil?

What a disaster of an article.

Please knock off the "keep old systems to play old games" crap. Some of like like having one box for anything rather than owning and changing from three different boxes all the time. 

 

What a disaster of a post.

Don't know how could you live before Xbox made the BC... and not all games work... are you a PC gamer?

And how does that work when you want to play an xbox 360 kinect game? Or to play those games that the publishers will never allow? Or after all these years hasn't gotten around to?

Lets have a race. I'll go grab my Xbox 360 out of the closest and insert Tales of Vesperia. You insert it into your xbox one. Lets see which one gets to play it first?

Although you may have a lead. I'd have to first find batteries for my xbox 360. I have to take them out so they don't explode and leave gunk all over like last time.

I'd choose another game but every game (but one) I can play on my xbox 360 can't be played on XB1. So I'd have to go look for a list of Xbox 360 games. Then cross check it against a list of what games have been released.  That is just a lot of extra time.

Now if it was like the wii U BC - I'd agree. I can put any wii game in my wii U and immediately play it.  But then again who is saying the wii U is the best console because it can play all wii games? Along with a VC of many, many games. No one serious..

As if I ever claimed you can play tales of vesperia on the Xbox one. Nor did I ever claim that you can play your ENTIRE 360 library on One. 

Nor did I say that Xbox is the best console. Nor did I say BC is the sole factor that makes a console great.

Dont really get the point of this post.

And kinect games? Really? Kinect is suddenly the most important thing to you now, when motion control has been dead for years? gimme a break.

We could say the same of BC... Xbox didn't had a prior gen, X360 wasn't BC, X1 got BC middle gen and is limited.... but now it is all important?

Perhaps he is assuming himself before anyone else says it.

This was a funny thread on a lot of aspects

Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are necessarily right.

It is, hardware, network and OS-wise, the best console I have ever owned by far.

I don't have any stake in any of this thread's conversations but I'd like to correct the assertion that X360 wasn't BC. It very much supported software emulation of the original Xbox. Not all games were supported but the list was substantial enough to be considered decently BC at a minimum.
