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.
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.
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
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!
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.
it is awsome
it is one of the best i would not by the xbox 360 it is very slow the xbox one you should by be cause it is fast it has a very good voice controle
Hal of the time i use it it say no disk is in when there is. So what is the use of gaming console when it doesn't read the disks. I am also very impressed how slow it is my xbox 360 runs faster and the memory is full.
Why all the hate?
I don't get all the hate on this. Not everyone wants to talk to a gaming system. Now that the system is 50 bucks cheaper more people can afford this
A Tactical Move
This was a very smart and tactical move from Microsoft. The reality is that motion controls in gaming were just a phase -- like 3D. Now the Xbox One is the same price as the PS4 and will even the market somewhat. Economists predicted that as long as the Xbox One continued to have a $500 price tag the PS4 would continue to lead in system sales. It is surprising the Microsoft realized their mistake and is actually listening to what consumers want. Now that the field is more even what will decide who "wins" the console war will be the quantity and quality of exclusive titles available for it.
I had this console from the beginning with the cam. And I've never been disappointed. The latest games have just been unbelievable. Ms is really out doing in my opinion my ps4 now new games new ip loving it.
