Debating that is comical. Also, kill zone wasn't good must have game if it was it would've gotten better reviews. Out of all the games I mentioned you only spoke on killzone so I guess I must be right about the others. And yes the GTA 5 and last of us bundle does seem like a joke too when the competition is offering their console for $70 cheaper with an additional game/games and and $30 gift card on top making it $100 cheaper. That seems more like a deal. When mom goes shopping which price/package do you think will entice her more? There's a reason why Xbox's sales have tripled since the $50 price drop. I guess when ps4 brings good exclusives to the platform things will change. I preferred the ps4 first, but the Xbox is more fun to me and offers more.

First off reviews are worthless. It's a popularity contest of the worst kind. LBP3 got knocked on bugs but AC:U can't be bothered to render faces at times and doesn't get knocked, wtf? About the only thing you can glean from a review is an opinion. If I listened to reviews would I have been lmao at all the fun I've had with LBP3 over the last couple days? No. I prefer my own judgment and research thank you very much.
Second, xbone sales went up because the price dropped to be more in line with the actual product your receiving. It's also getting aggressive bundles because sales are flaccid as an 80 year old. It's not that it's not selling units, it's not making Microsoft money. They have a large investment to recoup. Hell $400 mil for the NFL deal alone. That's 800k xbones at $500 each to get there. No profit, no overhead, straight sales. How much was Kinect research again, $100 mil comes to mind for some reason. Brass tax bottom dollar says Microsoft isn't making money. No console sales = no software sales = no sub sales = no recoup of investment and no profit. Very simple math.
A $500 box wasn't moving so it became a $400 box in 6 months and now a $350 box with bundles. Also, tripled sales of a poor seller are not that great. Yay I sold an xbone yesterday and today I sold three! Meanwhile other consoles are selling 100 a day. Exaggerated slightly but it's all PR
bs. If the xbone outsells the PS4 x3 in November, then beat your chest and brag because that is an accomplishment.
Take an honest look at the financials of these companies today. Microsoft is losing plain and simple. Their losing numbers which loses revenue. Sony isn't losing a thing. In fact their sales are pretty steady month over month. Now ask yourself why in God's name would Sony give up price drops and too many goodies when their on top and making money? The loser does that. Sony ate it last gen and now it's Microsofts turn. We can argue which one is better all day but if you want to talk sales those numbers are black and white and there is no debate about which is doing better financially.
Honestly if you don't like one console, trade it off and use the proceeds to fuel more games on the one you like. You will be much happier.
