Microsoft's Xbox One didn't really have a steady start to life. From the day of reveal, it has remained afflicted, thanks to a few over-the-top decisions from the management over at Redmond. However, needless to say, the console has since moved ahead and has already made its way to a number of fans across the planet.

With the console already a part of our lives, we have seen a number of big-name releases to go with the console, most of which are exclusives. The year 2014 has been filled with big releases, and although the Xbox One may not boast that many exclusives compared to PS4, but it still has given fans something to cheer about.

Going ahead, more new titles are set to arrive on the console. And while we just can't wait to play all of them, it is evident that some time down the line we will run out of space on our consoles. And running out of space on the console midway in a game is nothing less than nightmare for the average gamer.
