It's a good time to be a console owner...well, for most console owners. Nintendo fans are celebrating the launch of the Switch, along with the latest Zelda game - which is getting overwhelming praise as one of the greatest gaming achievements in years. Playstation fans are celebrating an ongoing streak of great console exclusive titles, including Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, Nioh, Nier: Automata, and the upcoming Persona 5.
And then, there's Xbox One fans.
The console has been lagging behind PS4 since the two launched in 2013, but how badly it's failing its userbase has only recently really been made clear - even longtime fans will admit the 343 Halo games can barely compare to the Bungie-developed entries. Gears of War 4 failed to reignite the fanbase. And the Xbox One's 2017 looks...grim.
