By and large, the formula still works, but with fewer and fewer console exclusives out in the wild, other considerations need to come to the fore. In 2014, the choice between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was ultimately easy for me even though the vast majority of games on the horizon for both weren't exclusives. One box was $100 cheaper and didn't come with an alienating, mandatory camera. That was it.
Eight months later, Microsoft's bringing price parity to the party. Now the race really is about exclusives. Xbox One has some perky ones on the horizon. D4 brings the pedigree of Deadly Premonition with it, and that's mighty tempting. That's just one perspective, though. What about you? Are you going to take the plunge on Xbox One now that it's down to $400?
