    I just picked up a Switch today after borrowing an Xbox One for about a month.

    There's not a lot of compelling games exclusive to the XB1, and the PS4 does a better job of running multi-platform titles.

    I wonder what happened, my original Xbox and 360 libraries were filled with interesting "Only on Xbox" titles.

      In reply to Ted O'Hayer: The Switch....hahahaha that is funny! Well if it is exclusive games you looking for you will get nothing but Nintendo exclusives on the Switch.

      95% of the games on XB1 and PS4 are multi-platform.

      Microsoft did everything they could wrong with the XB1 when it launched and it still has sold 25+ million. Sony did everything right with the PS4. The problem is Sony is hanging on by a thread company wise and the PS4 Pro has not been a hit. The Xbox 1 S plus many updates has made the Xbox 1 the clear leader between the two platforms now in terms of overall value.

      My guess is the Scorpio is going to be a huge hit.

    Riddle me this:

    Why is the Xbox One S more powerful than the regular Xbox One, but Windows 10 S is less powerful than the regular Windows 10?

      In reply to warren:

      Those two don't mix, so why ask? None-the-less, it's simple to see the Xbox One S has newer/better hardware. And, Windows 10 S, which is for computers, not the Xbox line, is for cheaper more define computing needs.
