Full disclosure, I will be getting the PS4 (I’ll probably give potential buyers some tips once I have done my research, so watch out for that) but….. the Xbox One does look like a real next gen gaming system. I have a lot of friends who work for game development companies so I have been hearing trickles of information about the consoles for a while now, of course they need to have access to the machines a good year and a half before consumers do, so that games can actually be developed for them. I heard the Xbox One controller has had a few noticeable but subtle upgrades (the predecessor was already the champion of controllers in many gamers eyes) and the accuracy of the connect has seen a lot of improvement, as well as some fairly significant processing and memory upgrades. All these changes have resulted in a decent upgrade from the Xbox 360, while many say it’s not as ground breaking as previous machines what we have to remember is that most of the launch games don’t really do the console justice, I think we will have to wait a good year until we see what the machine is really capable of after developers have had a chance to really get their teeth into it–and all the hubbub of the ‘always on’ controversy is over and done with. Personally I think that Titanfall (which will not be released on the PS4–owing to an exclusive deal) when released in Q1-2 of 2014 will be amazing, if this game was released with the Xbox One on launch day the console war might have shifted tides, watch out for the launch.
As you can see, I quite often get sidetracked when I’m interested about a subject. What I wanted to originally focus on was the deal that Microsoft sent us through late last night. Apologies for customers who have already pre-ordered, and ones that are not based in Canada, this is for new customers only. The original price for the console was $749.95, but with this special $50 off instant discount (basically the page linked below) it is now only $699.95, customers also have the option of actually building their bundle and choosing the games they want (from those currently available).
If customers buy a Xbox One with the complete bundle, they can save $50 (limited time only & only from the Microsoft store)
Expires: Limited time only (please check the post date of this offer as a guide)
