I... Have chosen a side in this round of the never-ending console wars. I like many people out there do not have the budget for both consoles. It didn't come easily and I'm still very keen for both the PS4 and Xbox One. But I still must say that I plan on getting the PS4. I should also mention that I will not be getting a PS4 for a while now since there aren't many games I want right now. However, I will be missing a few things from the Xbox One:

1.) The Halo Series: Yes the Halo series had had it's problems over the years but I think that after Bungie gave up the series to 343 Guilty Spark the series really matured. When I picked up Halo 4 I was expecting another version of the same thing I'd gotten since the beginning: gruffly spoken words and a lot of bullets (or plasma beams) going everywhere. Yet this iteration of the game gave us a character driven story concerning Cortana's death and her relation to the Master Chief. So yes I will miss this series and I hope they can get back to making the Flood scary again like when I was eleven and sat down with the first one. On a side note: Parents do not let your kids play Halo until they are old enough it gave me nightmares.

2.) The Fable Series: This one is a bit harder to defend and I realize that. The series as of late has been total dreck. I do remember saying to my mother though that Fable was probably the reason she didn't have a druggie son. As a closeted gay teen in suburban Virginia I had the option to be a gamer (later gaymer) or a druggie (kudos to anyone who can come up with a clever pun for a gay druggie). So yes Fable will always hold a special place in my heart.

3.) That home button: Yes the PS4 has a share button but I don't think it will be same as that sexy X that sits there tempting me to turn of a game and watch Netflix.
