E3 2014 Scalebound - SON OF SPARDA
After E3 last year I'd basically written off ever getting an Xbox One. It wasn't just Microsoft's calamitous cable box conference, that was more like a final straw. I think it's fair to say that after a great couple of years Microsoft began to cost heavily on the 360's success. Every inch of your boot up screen was rapidly transformed into advertising space for Microsoft's business partners and there wasn't even an attempt to compete with PlayStation Plus' exclusive offers and freebie games.
When Sony revealed a cheaper, more powerful system my next-gen console buy became an easy decision. I can only surmise that in reaction to this an alarm went off somewhere in Bill Gates' house. "Oh no! We've lost Chris Ready! He buys a fairly reasonable amount of games. However can we get him back?" The window EXPLODES. A dark figure leaps into the room. Gates picks himself up, COUGHING. "Mr Gates?" Bill turns to face the intruder - it's rock star game developer Hideki Kamiya. He's smiling. "I have a plan."
