Focusing on software instead of all the video content a few weeks back during the reveal was a smart move, restoring some faith that was lost from gamers on the system. Having a decent selection of first party titles and exclusives like Ryse: Son of Rome, Halo, Killer instinct and Titanfall do well for the Xbox One.
Although the software took the spotlight for most of the show, the $499 pricetag got most of us talking about it. The cost may keep some current generation gamers from taking the jump to switch over. It’ll be compared to the PS4’s pricetag when it’s most likely announced with what the box looks like tonight at Sony’s conference.
