I might be heading in that direction.
I bought both PS4 and Xbox One at launch last year - "let the best one win". I didn't like the XB1's Kinect, TV integration, or the lower rendering resolution issue, so I stuck with PS4 and invested into that platform, relegating the Xbox to an upstairs TV.
But then Sunset Overdrive came out, and I moved the XB1 back to the main TV/gaming area, and discovered a couple things:
1) I like the XB1 controller better. I miss the speaker gimmick on the Dual Shock 4, which is a much better controller than the DS3, but the buttons, stick tension and the feel of the XB1 controller works better for me. And the trigger feedback is a good gimmick in it's own right.
2) I borrowed a XB1 copy of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor from a friend, and the experience has been great. The rendering may be lower than the PS4 version, but I think I would be hard pressed to notice a difference on Mordor and Sunset Overdrive.
3) My game in-progress status returns after turning the console off!
4) Xbox One has IR, so I can turn it on and control it with a Harmony remote, which means the Netflix app (and now HBO Go) apps have greater value in the Home Theater.
5) The friends integration is better on Xbox. I have similar Friends lists on both systems, but feel more connected to how the Xbox handles it.
So now that the Xbox One doesn't push Kinect or TV on me, and discovered that the resolution issue isn't as much of a big deal as I thought, I might be switching back to Microsoft's console as my main console - or at least be using much more than I did this year.
