Why Fall 2015 Is The Perfect Time To Pick Up An Xbox One

A stellar fall line-up and a slick new UI are just a few of the reasons you should pick up an Xbox One this Autumn!

Although it was bombarded with harsh criticism at its announcement in 2013, the Xbox One has shaped up to be a fantastic next-gen gaming platform. In fact, with updates that make the console better each month and an expanding all-in-one feature catalogue, it’s hard to throw much hate at the Xbox team these days. As the Xbox continues to build momentum throughout 2015, here’s why there’s never been a better time to jump on the One.

The Games

Part of what makes this fall one of the best ever to own an Xbox console is the sheer amount of diversity Xbox is offering with its exclusives. Whether you’re a casual gamer with only a few hours a month, or you’re looking to get into some serious gaming in the second part of 2015, the Xbox team has you covered. Here’s the hottest things coming to Xbox this fall:

  • Forza Motorsport 6
    • Perhaps the most accessible title in the fall line-up, Forza Motorsport 6 is the kind of racer you want it to be. Thanks to incredibly customizable gameplay options, you can play the game like an arcade racer or go for gold with realistic simulation handling. With 26 real-world locations and more than 450 cars to choose from, Forza Motorsport 6 looks to be the definitive next-gen racing game.

  • Halo 5: Guardians
    • With a four player co-op campaign and fine-tuned multiplayer, Halo 5: Guardians aims to dominate your game time this fall. Despite not having any local multiplayer options, Halo hasn’t looked this hot or been this fresh in a long, long time. Thanks to the newly announced “T” rating (a first for the core franchise), Halo 5 is more accessible to families who are looking to play and experience the game together.

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
    • Although it’s coming to PS4 and PC in 2016, Rise of the Tomb Raider looks like an incredible adventure game that you can only play on Xbox in 2015. This isn’t the same Tomb Raider you grew up with, though. While puzzles and tombs are making a comeback, brutal and realistic combat is now a key pillar of the rebooted franchise.

The Ecosystem

Thanks to the roll out on PC this past July and Xbox this November, Windows 10 is finally here! With it comes a sleuth of new features both for your console and your computer. Many games down the line will feature cross-buy support, so if you buy a game on console and want to play it on your PC, it’s available free of charge. Additionally, cross-play functionality is coming to a handful of titles. This means that you can play on Xbox against PC players or vice versa. You can even communicate with them via messaging or through party chat. Lastly comes Xbox to Windows 10 PC streaming. This will allow you to use your computer or other Windows 10 device as a screen for your console. If you have a family member that wants to use another console or simply watch TV, you can continue to enjoy your Xbox from a different screen.


Pure Value

Thanks to a handful of price drops and awesome bundles, an Xbox One loaded with games is pretty cheap! Perhaps the best deal this fall is the Madden ’16 bundle. Even if you aren’t a sports fan, this bundle is a steal! For just $399, you get an Xbox One loaded with a 1TB hard drive, Madden ’16 and a full year of EA Access which grants access to nearly all of the previously release EA Sports games, Battlefield 4, Plants v Zombies: Garden Warfare, Titanfall, Peggle 2 and the excellent Dragon Age: Inquisition! On top of that, EA Access also grants a 10% discount on games and 6-10 hours of early access for every EA game prior to its launch. Pretty nifty!44b288da-c78e-4461-a5f3-1c2a242aa531.jpgFinal Note

With an incredibly strong exclusive line-up of games in 2015, a beefy line-up in 2016, a cheaper price point and features that truly make the console all-in-one, now is the perfect time for you to jump into gaming on Xbox One.
