Did I just make a mistake?
So I'm not expecting the most unbiased responses in the Playstation forum but I'm hoping a few of you might have some insight-- perhaps those with both systems.
I just bought two xbox ones. Yes two of them. My girlfirend and I don't like split screen and (more to the point) we wouldn't be able to play halo 5 with one xbox anyways as the developers are a bunch of ass-hats. Or maybe I'm the ass-hat for falling prey to buying two friggin' xboxes and two discs to play ONE game. In either case, I got a fairly good deal if you can call it that: $300 bucks for a 500gb with 4 games I already played on 360 (gears), AC unity and a $60 gift card that I'll use for the new halo (all of this x2 obviously).
So here's my question: am I dumb? Like, dumber than most? I really didn't want to buy either the xbox one or the ps4 on account that their best games are still ports of games I already own on 360 and ps3. Halo 5 is really the first game that piqued our interest on either system as my GF in particular loves to pwn teh noobs and I like to play co-op and pretend I'm better than awful (I'm truly terrible at halo). Last generation our 360s got a LOT more play as the 360 was clearly the superior social gaming platform and my single PS3 pretty much gathered dust between Uncharted and God of War sequels (in Sony's defense the PS3 is probably the worst playstation which is really not much of a knock considering how amazing the PS1 and PS2 were). It was natural for us to look to Microsoft for our next generation fix but now I'm reading that the One is a bloated, power hungry boat anchor compared to the PS4 and costs as much despite being less sophisticated graphically and being outsold at a clip of two to one-- this last part in particular concerns me as sales tend to determine exclusives and while Xbox has halo and Gears, Sony is getting uncharted and a game where a pre-historic babe shoots robotic dinosaurs with a bow and arrow.
So what is it? Am I dumb for buying into Xbox? Should I abandon ship as the rest of the world seems to be doing? Has Sony finally figured out their online? Is the controller no longer ass as it's been since 95? I need advice.
What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
