Well, the kids started out with several games:  Zoo Tycoon, Ryse, Killer Instinct and Forza 5.  On the PS4, they are hooked on Lego game plus Contrast.

 

Resogun (PS4) is still the most fun on either platform.

 

That said, my kids spent most of the day on the WiiU because of an annoying factor with the XBOX One.. every time my wife would say to the kids "do you like the XBOX?" or anything where she mentioned 'XBOX' the screen would pop up asking them what they wanted to do, etc.  Just a real 'uhh..' kind of moment.

We have knack, and have played al the way through it. It's not bad.

 

Ryse may be one of the worst next generation games.  It's pretty.. but so repetitive, not very well thought out and it gets boring fast. It's a complete button masher..

 

Forza, though, is quite awesome.

I love racing games but I never got Forza as I fear it isn't worth the $60 price tag.... I got FIFA instead as my most recent game purchase and am still not sure if I made the correct choice...

2K Games has chosen to not renew it's MLB license. This means, that in this generation, only Sony "The Show" has a license for an MLB game, at least for the next season/two

That's meaningless for us Playstation guys, but sucks for everyone else. (Of course, it already sucked for them since 2K is supposedly so much worse than The Show. . .)

XB1 Installation problem:  I installed several of these for a client right before the holidays, on one of his systems, going into a Marantz AV 7005 via HDMI, the XBX would come up with a green wash dominating the screen.  I messed around with a few different settings in the Marantz and ended up trying a different XB1, which did the same thing, and then ran it straight into the projector, which worked fine.  In phone conversations with Marantz, it appears this has appeared a few other times on other brands of receiver/pre-pro since I first reported the issue, and has been concluded that this is an XB1 issue that can be resolved by going into the XB1 settings where there's a color depth setting, and changing it to either 30 or 35.  

 

FYI, in case anyone out there experienced this issue with their new XB1.

Picked up one for Christmas for the kids with Lego Marvel superheroes and Skylanders Swap Force and I was greatly impressed by the games, and picture quality.  This is my first real experience playing games in high definition and all I can say is wow.  It actually convinced me to go to Gamestop and purchase the universal HD component adapter for the 360 and Wii and Marvel vs. Capcom looked fabulous. 

So far the only problem I have is when I choose the 5.1 uncompressed stereo setting, I get some kind of error indicating that my receiver does not support it.  Also, occasionally I get the HDMI protected error on Bluray discs, but ejecting and inserting the discs usually addresses that.  I love the function where you can hook your satellite box to it and watch tv through the XB1.  I got the 12 month Xbox Gold Live subscription and this may help me decide whether to cut the satellite or not.  All in all one piece of impressive equipment.  PS4 will be in our home Christmas this year.

Rumor has it that the new MS CEO is looking to possibly sell or axe the Xbox division.  That would be unfortunate.

No way they'll kill it. Worst case scenario, they sell it to another company that screws it up. Another possibility is that they spin it off into a standalone company.

Considering how much money they've lost since 2001, I doubt they could make Xbox into its own company.  Selling it to someone else makes sense, but who would buy it?  Who has the capital and interest?  Apple, Samsung, and Amazon are already working on their own living room console devices and probably wouldn't want to be forced to use MS apps that are ingrained into the XB1, so they're probably not willing to take it.  Who else is even big enough to buy it?

This was not necessarily what MS wanted with Titanfall, I think.

It appears clear that the PC gaming platform is best.. by a big long mile in playing this game.

Yeah but F Origin.  It's pretty great on Xbox One anyway...

I'm sure its great on 360, too.  It runs at the same resolution and saves you $500.
