I grew up playing the Xbox and the Xbox 360. I have used these systems to their fullest! I have loves the games that they have offered and all the fun that has been part of this platform.
However, I think Microsoft is losing sight of the gaming world. There seem to be more reasons to leave the Xbox behind then to continue my loyalties.
First, no backwards compatability. Ok, I get it. New technology, better gaming. Great. But what about the games that I can still play over and over again. Keep the 360 connected? Sure, but I will probably have to sell it and all my games to afford the One.
And you have to have an Internet connection. Fair enough, most people do. I grew up in a place that getting an Internet connection was difficult and not very good. Well shoot, looks like the PS4 is looking pretty fun now.
When it's all said and done, I feel like Microsoft doesn't want my business anymore. I think they are going for new markets, and that means their game partnerships are going to suffer. Too bad, but I guess my PS4 will be nice.
