I heard that PS4 has hit the 10 million sold mark world wide and Xbox One only has 5 millions. I've always have been a Microsoft fan and do like the interface more on Xbox One over PS4. I general use it for media and not really a gamer anymore. But when the option can!e I just on it. Now with this all said. Was it a mistake to get the Xbox One and just stay with Xbox 360? I'm happy I don't have to see 4 boxes under the HDTV and it looks clean now.

If the Xbox One is the reason for this - isn't this a major point in the pro field of the One?

Honestly I look at tech as regrettable if you don't use it, you may not be gaming on it but if you are using the media features, well you are using it and that's no waste in my eyes - that being said if you use your 360 more than the One, well maybe you could have waited.

You are asking if you shouldn't have bought it because another product sold more? What on earth kind of question is that?

That's like saying you should prefer Coke over Pepsi simply because Coke sells more

 

 

...when clearly Pepsi tastes better  :rofl:

I use to have a Blu ray player, Xbox 360, HD DVD add on and a other box. Now the Xbox one does all of it. All the other is put away. I want to sell the Xbox 360 so I can feel better that I only spend $200 for the Xbox one with kinect instead of $325. Got it new/unopen on craigslist. If I didn't see it on there then I would never gotten it.

You should have gotten what you wanted, which you did.

Normally I'd agree with you, but Companies are more willing to fund a game for a system they know is selling well. So, although it seems like a bizarre question, in terms of content it may actually be beneficial to buy the system selling more units.

 

If, however, he's not much of a gamer anymore and is enjoying the media functionality of the Xbox One, then I say he's made the right decision.

I just want to get back into video games but have a hard time doing so. I love movies and can watch 10 hours of back to back movies on the weekend if I wish. Just wish I can do that with video games. COD Ghost was not that fun. Even my casual games I play only last 10 minutes just complete task until I need to do it again in 8 hours. Lol aka Mafia wars

Personally I think unless there is a must have game or feature on the new console then buying it in the first year is always a mistake. Release quality for consoles has gone down with every generation as they have more and more options available for post launch updates so you get half implemented features.

Another one who believe The Last Of Us is the holy grail of gaming. Damn this game is overrated to the max.

Never buy something because every one else does. Form your own opinions based on your own usage.

 

You say you like the interface, use it for media and like the lack of boxes under your TV, that's job done then isn't it?

I ordered PS4 and now I am reading all the news of controller failures and poor quality materials used in their manufacture. So I say completely opposite to yours.

 

I hope Sony has improved the manufacturing process.

You didn't make a mistake. It sounds like the XB1 was perfect for your needs. The PS4 has sold more, but there will still be plenty of XB1 games.

 

Also, as a minor sidenote, don't use "I'm a Microsoft fan" as a a reason for buying Microsoft product. Buy the product that best suits your needs regardless of who makes it. Not that it makes a difference in this case. :)
