I've been in the Sony camp since the original Playstation and have never owned an Xbox. I've held off picking sides this generation, mainly because both consoles were in rough shape for a while. Fortunately, I think E3 restored hope for fans of both consoles. Lots of things to be excited about. But if I had to pick sides right now, I would probably move to camp Xbox. I'd rather have great software on weaker hardware than vice versa, and Microsoft has done a great job of repairing their image since the One's disastrous launch.
I think I agree with you completely. I have been a Sony 'fanboy' for as long as I have owned consoles, but now am more seriously considering the xbone than the PS4. A lot of it has to do with the media features, and overall a seemingly more secure and stable network.
