Xbox One Console
A step back from the Xbox 360
When the Xbox One was released back in 2013, I initially had no intention on buying it. It was expensive, the games didn't look interesting, the list goes on and on. However, they began releasing games I wanted exclusively on next-gen systems. Last Christmas I caved in and bought one, prepared for the next-gen experience. It didn't deliver on it's promises. The biggest problem I have with the system is it's requirement to download every game you play, and the games have massive download sizes of up to 60 Gigabytes. That is absurd. Also, Microsoft claims that the Xbox One has 500 Gigabytes of storage. That is false. Without any games on my system downloaded, 17% of my storage was already taken up. How is this possible? Well, it turns out that the User Interface takes up 136 Gigabytes. That's false advertising right there. Also, the user interface that is running on the Xbox One is Windows 8, and it's the most confusing, backwards main menu screen I have ever dealt with. I am very disappointed in this system, and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. If you want to get a next-gen system, get the PS4. It has better hardware, more memory, and is the better system. Please Note: I AM NOT A PLAYSTATION FANBOY.
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.
Buy a ps4, this is a piece of junk. I wrote a review on it weeks ago but it gets worse and worse every time I play it. Heck, the alienware alpha is a better buy than this V.C.R.
My internet went out the other day for about 3 hours, couldn't play anything on my Xbox because it requires you to sign in to xbox live in order to play your games.
HELLO! My game is installed and the disk is in the drive, just let me play my game!
This is a great product everyone should own
The Xbox One is such a great system for any gamer to own. What I like that they did, was basically keep the controller the same. Obviously it has differences from the Xbox 360 controller, but overall it is basically the same feel. The graphics on this console are absolutely incredible. I am a big fan of sports games, and playing them on this console gives a feel as though you are actually watching the game instead of just playing. Even on other games such as call of Duty, the faces on people are so life like it is just crazy. Now, play station obviously offers the same thing when it comes to graphics, but the Xbox one has many more useful and fun abilities. I think my favorite feature about the Xbox one over the play station 4 is the voice command control. Being able to control your system with nothing but your voice makes you feel godly. It is so nice just lying in bed and not having to have a controller in order to pick a movie or television show on Netflix. Another cool feature I found about the xbox one while messing around with it was the fact you can watch your cable network while playing xbox. Xbox one also allows you to skype which is pretty cool as well. Overall this Is a pretty sweet gaming system that I think every gamer or anyone in general should own
Xbox one is a total lemon
My biggest complaint is that there are a lot of missing features from Xbox360 like being able to message from the quick menu.But the most annoying thing about the xbox 1 is the simple yet very stupid interface which sometimes doesn't know if you want to turn it off keep playing or use another app.Not even the price makes up for this lousy product.Unless you are fan of halo there no reason why you shouldn't buy a PS4
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
My PS4 still win's .....
I love the controller on the Xbox One. Besides the top bumper buttons are a little weirder and tighter then the 360 was I think. And certain games you can see more details in dark sense's in the PS4. Because it has a better video card in the PS4. Xbox interface is cool. But you have to invest a little time in learning it. PS4 in more strait forward and easier to pick up. Hard Drive on the Xbox fills up a lot quicker then the PS4. But you can hook a external Hard Drive up to the Xbox One. It takes a long time to install games. But it all so has USB 3.0 ports. PS4 you have to open it up and install a internal Hard Drive. PS4 camera is nice and slim and small on the top of my HDTV. Xbox is unnecessary. Why Xbox is taking features out and letting game developers use more resources on games. But I still love my Xbox.
this is a good system
You get a cheaper system with a free game you get more for money if you not an xbox fan then this is not for you dont give bad reviews because it doesnt have all the things you want i like the xbox one they been adding things to the xbox one
Not as good as PS4
I bought both this Xbone One (without Kinect) and a PS4, so I speak from personal experience and honesty when I say that my Xbone One is not as good as my PS4. The controller is not as sensitive as the PS4's dualshock 4, and I regularly do better at shooters on the PS4. My xbox one's wireless can't connect to my school internet but my PS4 can connect through wireless. I realized that I'm not much into Halo and I like PS4 exclusives better, like inFamous: SS and The Last of Us Remastered. The graphics are also less sharp on Xbox One. The Xbox One graphics honestly look like PS3 graphics. The UI (main menu and other menus) are clunkier than PS4 and the console itself looks ugly and is way more bulky than PS4, even without the Kinect. Overall, buy a PS4 (if you only have enough money to buy one console.)
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.
