I’ve been a Playstation gamer all my life. I have every Playstation, 1-4, and I’ve been fine just sticking to Sony. I never had the need to get an Xbox….until now. I’m in a relationship with a Microsoft user (insert shudder here) and they have  convicted me to get an Xbox One. Sony, I swear, it’s not what it looks like.

As a Playstation gamer, there have been many thoughts going through my mind as I get used to this contraption known as the Xbox One, and I thought I would share some with you today.

So I don’t understand why they called them bumpers and triggers. I honestly still don’t know the difference. I will always know them as r1, r2 etc.

Why is the A button in the X button spot? And where is my triangle button? Why is this controller so different and bulky? I don’t think I can handle this. I will say, though, it has better battery life then the PS4 controllers… only because it uses AA batteries.

To be honest, the Xbox One is so chunky compared to the PS4. Like I had to carry that thing around in my duffle bag and I’m pretty sure I killed my back and shoulder. Thanks, Microsoft.

Also I just love all of the exclusives you have….I literally can’t stand Halo, and Quantum Break, the game that came with my Xbox, isn’t so good either. PS4 still has better exclusives right now.  

I remember people saying Xbox One had better graphics than PS4, but I literally see no difference whatsoever. Thanks, Microsoft.

I kicked off my flip flop and it accidently turned on my Xbox. The touch screen turn on is way too sensitive…..Thanks, Microsoft.

Actually, I love my Xbox One so far. It’s taking a lot to get used to, but I get to play a lot of games with my significant other and other friends that have the console. It’s really fun to have parties and just play Minecraft or Overwatch. I can’t decide with console I like better. Both have its perks. Playstation, I swear it’s not what it look like. I can love you both equally. I would say that if you’re thinking about getting an Xbox One anytime soon you should definitely wait until the slim comes out. It’s going to be cheaper, have an actual button instead of a touch sensitive button, and it’s not going to be as heavy. I mean, seriously, this thing weighs a ton.

Yeah, so there are going to be a few posts relating to this as E3 is in merely two weeks. But given glitches we encountered on the podcast and whatnot, I wanted to make sure that this information got across as soon as possible. The most direct thing that everyone needs to hear is this:

E3Mustapha’s Game Room and MMOExaminer are teaming up to provide you with the best and most thorough E3 coverage you can find. From constant articles and live-tweets to a full stream covering the press conferences and some of the show floor content. While we won’t be at E3, we will be paying close attention to every broadcast and covering news in an effective and concise way with the charm of myself, Jeremy and James, the likes of which you wouldn’t get anywhere else.

Over the next few weeks prior to the conferences, you’ll see a theme of E3 predictions and reflection on both my site and MMO Examiner.

During E3 however, the stream is going to be embedded on their website. We will likely be watching the broadcasts directly from the sources. Sony’s from their own broadcaster and so on. I will also be adding an E3 page to this website that will link to where all the action is taking place! So make sure to check that out. There will be more updates in the week as things change.

E3 is the biggest time of the year for the video game industry, as we get a retrospective look at the past year, and an even bigger look at the next year going forward. I think that is an opportunity we should welcome and embrace. For more on this partnership as news becomes available stay tuned on MMOExaminer, and stay tuned here on the GAME ROOM!!!
