Announced last year by CBE Software, Someday You’ll Return promises to take players on a narratively-driven psychological field trip into a mysterious world in the ancient Moravian forests in the Czech Republic, but what they didn’t tell us, just how creepy it will actually be.

Just a few days ago we saw Microsoft unveil their super-secretive console. It’s a console that Microsoft has finally eliminated the mystique that was associated with its name. The console, according to Microsoft, aims to be a power house. It aims to be a console that will redefine how we see home console gaming in this current age of gaming. It’s a console that Microsoft seems mindset will change how we see their console life-cycles, and most importantly: it’s their end game.
For years, it was difficult to not encounter someone who backed Microsoft with the Xbox 360. It was a console to be reckoned with due to Sony’s shortcomings with the PlayStation 3. Sony was being devastated not because of a lackluster library, but instead by a console that struggled to maintain a steady pace with the Xbox 360. It was a console that even developers struggled developing with due to its outdated architecture in a comparison to Microsoft’s developer friendly Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 is also a console that, to this day, still has a massive library in comparison thanks to its first party franchises, party chat support, and easily accessible navigation menus.
However, in that note, Sony has made a massive comeback with their PlayStation 4. It is a console that has almost steadily remained selling 2:1 against Microsoft’s Xbox One. the problem with this ratio is the simple fact that Microsoft was in that spot this time around last generation. They were making leaps and bounds against Sony in sales. However, those numbers have changed in recent years as the PlayStation 3 has finally begun to outsell the 360 on the global scale. According to VGChartz, the PlayStation 3 has officially broke the 86.6 million units sold globally while the Xbox 360 sits still at 85.7. This number shows that both consoles sold a lot, they both had a lot of owners, but the Xbox 360 still won in Europe and North America where it sold the strongest.
