I like my Xbox One!

Bright, shiny and sexy, only on Xbox One!

Time to get the act together and start actually writing updates for Lost Planet. Let's begin with the most important gaming step for us Lost Planeteers.

Back in April we had an extraordinary opportunity to buy a next-gen console. It was crucial to keep up with the gaming. Between Xbox One and PS4 we eventually chose the former. "Why!?" I hear all the PS4 fanboys crying. It came down to four reasons:

1: Xbox One is considerably cheaper than over-priced PS4.
2: Rise of the Tomb Raider is released on Xbox One a good year ahead of PS4 version. A crucial factor considering Tomb Raider 2013 was one of the best, if not the best, games of the last generation.
3: Two years ago we visited a local electronics expo and Xbox One booth made a better impression. The staff was super-friendly and professional and games on display were promising. PS4 booth on the hand left a very cold feel. The staff there was indifferent to the visitors, the display was plain and yeah, the exclusives... not impressive to put it mildly.
4: We hate Sony's attitude "we are the best, fuck the rest". They don't honor their competition which is odd for a Japanese company. Then again, PS4 isn't exactly a Japanese console anymore.
