Forgive my attempt at a creative title what I want to discuss is Fallout 4; or should I say the lack there of? Personally I am a massive Bethesda Game Studios (BGS) fan, I love Fallout, especially 3, all the Elder Scrolls games, and have been looking forward to Fallout 4 since the end of 3.
I have tweeted at Pete Hines (PR guy for BGS) many times asking about Fallout 4 to no avail and read avery rumor including following the infamous survivor2299 website. I can assure you the lack of news has been immensely disappointing for myself and many fans; however, I trust Todd Howard (Director of BGS) to make a great game no matter how long it takes; and I do believe Fallout 4 will be great. So for every Fallout fan waiting for even the tiniest bit of news on Fallout 4 all I can offer is, you are not alone, and that we must trust BGS to create another epic entry in the series and trust that them taking their time is for a good reason.
So I purchased the Xbox One (however it was quite the difficult decision with the original actions by Microsoft) mostly because of my history being a 360 owner and my love for that console. Having now had the Xbone for almost a year now I think I can say I am pretty happy with my choice. Comparing the two consoles there aren't really any games for the PS4 that I would really want and after E3 I prefer the Xbox exclusives way more (specifically Crackdown, Halo, Sunset Overdrive, and several others that intrigued me). Also the extra power of the PS4 hasn't seemed to have made much of a difference in terms of graphics quality on multi platform games, and the minor differences such as slightly better resolution or frame rate are just that...minor. If I really wanted a platform that could deliver unrivaled graphics dominance I would have went through the trouble of building a PC. It wouldn't be right to review the Xbone without mentioning the Kinect. Having never used or owned the original Kinect I have to say it has made me quite happy so far. I have no interest in using it in games however its use for navigating the console, controlling my TV and video player and turning it on and off have been a joy. Whether it is worth the extra $100 depends on whether you will actually utilize the voice commands or not but if you are considering it I would definitely recommend giving it a try. Overall I think that you can't go wrong with either system however if you are someone who watches a fair bit of TV (like I do watching most sports, and several prime time shows), frequently uses Netflix or similar services or someone who loves Microsoft's IPs then I think you will be very happy with the Xbox One. Lemme know what you think of the two consoles and whether or not you agree with me.
