I have officially decided that I will be getting an Xbox One before the holiday period begins. I have noticed it finally has a few exclusive games that make it worth buying now. I have held off until now. I initially went with PS4 and Wii U for this generation. I based that decision on past experience of course as I always buy the Nintendo console and the Playstation console. I have yet to own a single Xbox game console, I had at one time considered getting an Xbox 360 but then talked myself out of it when I upgraded my PC and bought a PS3 instead.
So what put me over the top on Xbox One? Well it wasn’t just one single game in particular it was a couple of games paired with an idea that I am intrigued by. The first game is a Rare Ware collection that includes dozens, over thirty if the box is to be believed, old school to modern day Rare classics. As a Nintendo gamer I grew up playing many Rare games over the years. I am primarily a retro gamer these days anyways so I am always drawn to any new collection of retro classics, especially since Sony made the HD remake popular. That brings me to my second reason for wanting to get one, the Halo HD collection which gives me hope that other franchises I missed out on or only had on PC will be redone in full HD and remastered for Xbox One. It isn’t much but I figure I am in a place now where I want to get back into gaming full force this generation and I would hate to miss out on some great games.
I haven’t fully decided when I will get one just that this generation I do not want to miss out on much so I will put getting an Xbox One in the plans. Things could change Sony could keep throwing games at me that take my money or Nintendo could score another addicting hit like Splatoon that eats up all my free time. Until then the current plan is to pick up an Xbox One by the end of the year if not sooner.
