Part Six: Conclusion

At the end of the day, you’re reading this review to answer one simple question. “Should I buy an Xbox One?” I hate to use this cop out answer, but I’d say that it depends. The Xbox One definitely deserves a place in your home, but just not right now.

At the current time, it’s very hard for me to honestly state that there’s a need to buy either next-gen console. With each system only really having one “must play “ title each (Dead Rising 3 and Resogun, respectively) and a lack of true console selling features, it’s hard to justify buying in right now. Once the holiday season is over and we start seeing fresh games released, that may change. But at the current moment, I don’t feel that purchasing either system is a necessity.

Buying an Xbox One now is less about buying a gaming system and is more about buying potential. There is a massive amount of potential here waiting to be unleashed, and I won’t be shocked to see the One have massive commercial success down the road. With a better selection of games and more apps available to be downloaded, the Xbox One will no doubt become a powerhouse in the gaming industry.

Personally, I’m extremely happy with the system so far, and I don’t think you’d go wrong buying in now if you don’t feel like waiting. I think our very own Jonathan Lack stated it best in his PS4 review. “We are coming off the best and most creatively rich generation in video game history – whether the next one can match it has yet to be seen.” He stated that the Playstation 4 is one hell of a start, and now that we’ve been able to have hands on time with both systems, the future definitely looks bright for gamers.
