Xbox One Console with 1 Year of Xbox Live Gold
Cant say enough good things
I can not say enough good things about the one, And its sad to see that PS4 fan boys have to bash it, First off this system is made for adults and for entertainment, Now I understand why some people cant grasp the concept of a machine that capable of not only playing badass games but take care of your over all entertainment, What a novel concept, And the reason PS4 is 100 bucks cheaper is because its made that way, they used gddr5, but its still not a 64 bit platform, Nor does it have a data structure like a one, So for all its claimed advances there's really none. Same tech same platform different number. Bottom-line is Xbox one has a great system all the way around and a secure network, Gorgeous games and multi tasking for fun and functionality, So people can talk about how great a PS4 is sure but i rather be in the next gen of gaming and entertainment with a company on a secure network, Not a child's platform with devolved thinking and a network they could care less about securing..
Cheap Console. Horrible Company.
November 22nd. Launch day. 8 hours waiting in line only to receive a console with a defective harddrive. Console #2 (shipped from Microsoft) disc drive failure less than 2 months of light use. Numerous chats with customer support and a BBB complaint later in comes....Console #3 (shipped by Microsoft) which was completely covered in deep scratches and was showing signs of the same problem from Console #1. Contacted their customer service and was promised that a member of the Xbox Advocacy team would call me within 2-3 business days to 'make this right' for me and also offer me additional compensation for the entire ordeal. That call didn't come until 3 weeks later after I said to heck with it all and had already sold the Xbox One to another individual. The Advocacy team member had the audacity to ask me to re-consider. NO WAY, NO HOW, NOT NOW, NOT EVER will I buy another Xbox One.
Great step for Xbox, but not a step for gamers.
I purchased the console in December and was stupid excited to play it. I had dead rising and loved the next gen life. I will admit I purchased this console because the PS4 was still sold out and I just wanted to step it up. The extra hundred bucks Xbox is charging over playstation stinks because all you're getting is the kinnect, which I for sure don't use. I wish there was a non kinnect version that was cheaper. I was having a great time with the console then started to do some real comparisons between the PS4 and Xbox and boy was I surprised. People think games look better on Xbox? It's cause they enhanced the colors so much since the Xbox is only capable of 720p. The 1080p may not be as bright, but as an everyday gamer I appreciate the clarity. The Xbox One feels like Microsoft took a tablet and made it capable of playing better games. I just wish everything wasn't an app and I wish Xbox was more interested in its gamers instead of shoving a bunch of useless stuff I'll never use into it like 80% of the apps they have available. Buy it if you want a family oriented console with a younger audience, but the PS4 is for the older more gamer type players. Paying for playstation network gives so many more benefits like free games and Sony getting money to make the network crazy good.
let me just start off by saying, that i bought my xbox one close to the end of febuary, and i have loved it ever since how you can watch netflix or search the net while you are waiting for the game to install, yes you do have to be very patient for it to install I think that is why microsoft, gave you the option to do other things while the game installs, other than the wait times every thing else is on point. now with that being said I have been at the heart of the so called console wars since the very first inclemations of the playstation and the xbox came out and have owned both. I find myself coming back to microsoft over the playstation. simply because I feel that playstation has taken the approach at aiming most of their games towards kids, which is ok, but im not a child, I have owned the playstation 3 and played the killzone series and was not impressed with any of them. and really lost faith in the brand when they were hacked. and all they gave out was some awful games and movies, would have sat well with me if they would have chosen some good titles to give to us. So i am extremely sorry to all the playstation fan-boys, but i am completely satisfied with my xbox even tho it does slightly resemble a "vcr" and I dont understand all the comparing,here is my advice if you want an xbox one get it if ou want a ps4 then get that, i just dont see a ps4 in my future.
