I'm already an Xbox One owner, but I was wondering how MS's purchase of Gears will effect the console war?

Has this latest news swayed your decision over which next gen console you were getting?

I have to say that the prospect of Halo & the possibility of Gears played a massive part in my choice.

The only thing weighing in on my decision right now is moolah...lol

Having said that, I was always leaning the XB1 direction, cuz that's how I roll!  Cool

I know a few of my friends are planning on getting an XB1 since the Gears release, but I understand the price gap.

I feel MS would have had much better sales if they offered a cheaper, no-kinect system.
Although, I have to say the kinect integrates into the Xbox One alot more than the 360.

Luckily, I was able to pre-order early enough that I didnt put much down per paycheck, so I was able to have Day One.

I have an Xbox One but I guess in all reality there was never really an option for me. All my friends that I play with are on Xbox so even when I was ticked at Microsoft for some of their policies getting a PS4 wasn't an option. I've made some great friends on Xbl and I wasn't going to give them up.

And have to say I glad I got my XB1 cause Dead Rising is awesome and with Titanfall, Destiny, Halo and now Gears ooooohhhhh yeeaahh! No other choice!  Very Happy

I'm looking forward to Titanfall, The Division, Sunset Overdrive and the next Gears. I currently have BF4 and Forza. I've played Forza the most and I have enjoyed it.

After the success of Borderlands 2 it was never a doubt they would release a 3rd plus more, but just to make you feel better I hunted this news article out that I saw awhile back, it was published in Oct 2012!


"The first Borderlands was a risky move by Gearbox Software, introducing a game no one has ever seen before. The sales were average, not great. Yet Gearbox decided to develop a sequel: Borderlands 2.

Borderlands 2 is a great success, and has topped many sales charts. Whereas Borderlands 1 had a rough start, Borderlands 2 had a great release and sold many of copies. So this time around, it isn't weird that Gearbox Software has a sequel planned..


Anthony Burch, head writer at Gearbox Software, said that Borderlands 3 is planned. Gearbox Software is, according to him, already exchanging ideas about a third part in the series. Gearbox hasn't announced anything more on the subject. However, after the successful release of Borderlands 2, it would be a surprise if they would not make Borderlands 3."

Oh that's good news! Now that I'm really thinking about it they did set up the end of 2 wide open for a BL3. I'm ready for it... Totally! Thanks for sharing that article  Very Happy
