Xbox One Console Only
If you buy an Xbox One, get this version.
Is the Kinect 2.0 really worth an additional $100? Definitely not. If you plan on purchasing a Xbox One you should wait till June and buy this version. The kinect is mostly a novelty item, past voice controls the kinect doesn't do much. There are no good games to use with the kinect because as much as the kinect was improved, the motion controls are still very wonky. Another reason I have a personal hate for the kinect was because of a glitch with face recognition that caused me to lose ALL my save data for a Xbox One game Killer Instinct. I highly recommend the Xbox One without Kinect, and if you are going to get any Next-Gen console I recommend that you buy a Xbox One instead of a PS4. I have had the benefit of trying both consoles and its games and would have to recommend the Xbox One as most PS4 exclusive games are boring and bland.
horrible in every way
i have both PS4 and Xbox one. i am highly disappointed with xbox one. the hand gesture get set off at any movement in the room, highly annoying when watching a movie and it keeps pausing. the voice interaction is equally bad. makes it hard to game with friends seeing as having a conversation, when talking it'll pick up phrases and react. doing a side by side comparison the PS4 takes the prize...its faster, holds better speeds, better WiFi pick up. better graphics. expandable memory. plus you can still access Netflix and other apps without subscribing to the plus program, whereas xbox you have to pay for anything online.do i really need to mention the fact that xbox forces you to buy the kinect. thats is why i have rated this system as low as possible.
To start, I'm not a "fan boy". I own both the ps4 and Xbox. Both systems are great and both have excellent pros and both have cons. I cannot tell a difference in graphics, I play on a 50in 1080p 120hz TV. The Xbox works fine with or without the kinect. I bought a used kinect and love it. I use my xbox more. Xbox live is nice. My issues with the Xbox are having to buy an extra attachment to use headphones and batteries for the contoller. I use rechargeable batteries so it's not much of an issue. Buying an Xbox is certainly not a bad choice. I recommend it. But you can't go wrong with a ps4 either. It comes down to what system you would play with your friends and family the most and what exclusives you like best.
The Xbox One is not worth buying. it freezes up at the worst possible times, the Kinect randomly works, and the controller will randomly freeze up. The only good thing that the Xbox One has is good graphics. I would not recommend buying this at all.
this is a good move from Microsoft they should have offered this at launch a system with Kinect and without to really be competitive this is why I am waiting cause I really don't care bout the Kinect I have friends who bought the 499 bundle that don't even use it so kudos to Microsoft for finally listening
Really great all around system
I've had this system since day one and I love it. It has some really great exclusives and even more coming. Like Halo Master Chief Collection, Forza horizon 2, Sunset overdrive, Quantum break and many more. Also With the 10% power there freeing up for devs to make better games. It will be an even better system. The controller is really nice a big improvement over the 360. Plus getting 2 free games a months with gold is a perk. Overall me and now my wife are very pleased with the Xbox One.
ABSOLUTE THE WORST SYSTEM EVER MADE
I own ever single GAME machine ever made, and I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE WORST GAME SYSTEM I HAVE OWNED. My ATARI JAQUAR IS BETTER THAN XBOX ONE. The controller is HORRIBLE, HEAVY, and NON RECHARGABLE. Don't get me started on the MENU's, THEY ARE PLAIN AND SIMPLE, Xbox 360 has better MENUS, and BETTER TO UNDERSTAND. XBOX ONE is CONFUSING, and HARD TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND. IT CONSTANTLY BREAKS and HAS TO BE REBOOTED. The games take 2 DAYS TO DOWNLOAD. Seriously THIS GAME SYSTEM IS NOT EVEN WORTH $50. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME SYSTEM, if you HAVE TO BUY ONE, then go buy a PS4. Ps4 is bad too, but XBOX ONE IS WORSE. If you ask me, I WOULD WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT GENERATIONS COME OUT. I would completely SKIP THIS GENERATION.
Worst system of the year
One of the worst systems i have ever used the detail is terrible ps4 trumps the xbox one in every step comparing the 2 i would rather the ps4 way over this pathetic machine. From laggy frame drops to people yelling system off in random lobbys. The xbox one doesn't live up to any expectation i had for this next gen company. Sorry to break it to you but its not as good as the ps4.
Waste of money
Complete and utter waste of money. I decided to pick up an Xbox one since the $50 price drop was happening. Got home and was a piece of garbage. First looks like a VCR form 15 years ago. The controller is also garbage. Only thing that was better than the xb 360 controller was the dpad. Trying to snap apps is a pain. Xbox says "the most award winning games". What games? Ryse was total garbage, Forza 5 was OK but Gran Turismo 6 beat it over the head 5 times. I retuned the XB1 and bought the PS4. PS4 is better for the price, even with the $50 price drop. Bought the Destiny bundle PS4. At least the console looks like something futuristic!
Its pretty good.
Don't get me wrong I love the xbox one. The controller feel is great. The only problem is that it disconnects a lot. Maybe it's because I got it without the Kinect but the xbox one is pretty good.
