The only reason I ever bought a 360 was for Halo. I was never an Xbox fan, only a Halo fan. While I did enjoy the Gears of War series and Crackdown, Halo was always my main draw. Had I never discovered Halo, I would have gotten a PS3 instead. In my life the only console brand I have ever remained loyal to is Nintendo because only they have consistently put out quality products. As for the others, I have no inherent loyalty so I'll jump ship in a heartbeat if I don't like the way they do things, and I'm doing just that with the Xbox brand. I refuse to fork out $500 to support an inherently bad business model, and the only way I'd get an XBO is if I could get one second-hand, that way MS doesn't see any of my money. I'm getting a PS4 because it's cheaper, doesn't restrict used games or my ability to lend or borrow at my own leisure, it has a better price point, and it doesn't require me to have an internet connection, not to mention the "Will I still be able to play this system 15 years from now?" problem is a non-issue. The last 15 minutes of the Sony press conference on Monday made my decision for me as to which system I'll be getting this November.

Not even my love for Halo can convince me to get an XBO, and TBH, even my love for Halo is starting to wane with the series in the hands of 343I. They made a bad first impression (not that H4 was bad, just... disappointing for a Halo game), and I'm not going to buy an anti-consumer abomination of a system just in the hopes that Halo 5 will see 343I improve and get the series back on track. No fucking way, no fucking how. I'm hoping the XBO does poorly enough in sales to where MS rescinds their policies, because I really would like to at least try to give 343I a second chance with Halo 5 and perhaps play some of the other MS exclusives, but until that time comes I'm going PS4 (and Wii U) all the way.
