My problem with Xbox was that I never really liked their exclusives, while I always loved Ratchet, Sly, God of War, inFamous and Sony’s more arcadey racing games (ModNation, Motorstorm, DriveClub, etc), so I never had a reason to buy a Xbox, cause third party games were always available on PlaySatation as well. Not to mention it always got much more third party exclusives.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

My option isn't listed. I just don't see it being worth the money being it that I already own a PS4. That's not to say I don't like it's games. It has a fine controller. Microsoft is 'aight.

Although, as I'm writing this, it just occurred to me that I recently bought a PS4 Pro (in addition to the regular PS4 I've owned for a few years). I could have gone with a Scorpio instead, which, in retrospect, may have been the better move.

Honestly, I have just been buying PS + Nintendo consoles for so long now that I don't even pay attention to what's on offer on the Xbox side.



I can only have so many platforms to game on, between PS4, Switch, even PC and mobile there's already too much content to consume leaving Xbox as odd man out like the Wii U was before.



No exclusives that I like. The 360 had lots of jrpgs, so that was enough to justify buying one, X1 basically has none.



The meager amount of exclusive games in general and the lack of variety of exclusive games are the main reasons why I've never been interested in xbox consoles.

Because it just doesn't have any must have exclusives for me, or at least none that I can't play on PC (Although I CAN'T play some on PC since I'm still using Win7 anyway, lol), and I'm already more than happy enough with my multiplatform set up of PC, PS4 and Switch, along with 3DS and Vita.



Here's my case. This is coming from a long time MS supporter and Xbox owner. The first Xbox caught me off guard. I remember the first time walking into GameStop and picking up the Duke controller. I honestly had no clue what the Xbox was and it almost felt like a joke. Anyway...I bought it for Dead or Alive 3 specifically. Learned about Halo in the following months and the rest is history.

I've been through multiple systems with the RRoD and some of the worst customer service ever but I stayed loyal.

This gen. Not so much.

I took a break from gaming and am still getting used to being back. I purchased an original 1 and had it stolen...took yet another hiatus...and as of August last year own a 1S. Here's my issue.

I'm a frugal guy. Always have been. I haven't had internet installed for years thanks to my phone and occasional trips to the library...and because of this...lost my relationship with Xbox.

IMO the biggest mistake MS made with the 1 was implementing disc installments...that REQUIRE INTERNET. I can't tell you how much of bone headed choice it was on their behalf. To people with internet providers..it would completely go over their head but for people like myself...ruined a good thing.

So now...I game on my PS4 (pro) and VR...and honestly...have no regrets...other than purchasing what has become a 300 dollar dust collector. I mean I own games that are still sealed.

I currently have my 1 on Craigslist and surprisingly have gotten a shirt ton of inquiries but everybody us a low baller these days. I have it listed for 190 with Battlefield 1. If the right buyer bites.... you're looking at a long time fan...no more. Well....at least this gen.;)



Insert Coin. Press START. You Died. Continue?

- Most games on Xbox I really don't care to try.
- I don't like MS
- I don't like the philosophy of the company, like what they tried to pull at E3 2013, I know that stuff is no longer part of the present but honestly if MS thought for a second their E3 2013 shit would work now, they'd pull it back in a second.
- I love that they have powerful consoles hardware (Xbox One X) but that's the only thing and it's not enough without the good games. Ironically in my opinion Nintendo has the exact opposite problem: They got great games but crappy hardware.

- Oh and I almost forgot, I don't like the controller, it looks fat and ugly and the fact the analogue sticks are not symmetrical is a deal breaker for me. just like the Switch controller (the doggy face thing) where the eyes are not at the same level. I love how both my left and right thumbs work at the same level on the PS4 controller rather than one thumb up and the other down cause of the sticks not being symmetrical.

Depending on which model you're selling, $190 with BF1 is pretty high for a used XBO. I got a grey 500 GB  XboxOne S with a free BF1 for like $250 over a year ago. You may have to take the loss on this one.

Cause they're a barren wasteland in the exclusive department. With having a gaming PC, there's no real legit reason to own one.
