It's supposed to last longer than the 360 and so far it's true. Too bad ps4 is more powerful that the xbox one. Microsoft still did a great job with the console but should've taken away Internet check ins. Question: why is it listed as a game? Haha Expand

Impressive UI, great exclusives and one hell of a multiplayer platform. Ever since I bought it, constant monthly updates that make it an easier and more enjoyable feature, like Backwards Compatibility. Controller is the best on the market hands down, Kinect works like a charm, minor amounts of bugs, occasional game crashing but VERY rare to see. I can only see the Xbox One getting stronger and stronger throughout its lifeline, I can't wait to see the new updates and features. On a personal level though, Phil Spencer is without a doubt the guy that should run xbox, only greatness has came from him. 10/10 that is how you make a god damn console Expand

I purchased one of the bundles with Kinect. I like the OS, the controller feels great, and the game libraries are going to be comparable (used-to-be-Sony-exclusive series like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts are now going to be on Xbox One). Altogether, I don't have any complaints. I'm not saying that one system is better than another, but just that I'm perfectly satisfied and love the Xbox One. Expand

    The Xbox One is not bad at all; it just needs more work, work that should have been done prior to release.
    The User interface is odd, not easy to use, and clunky to say the least, and I'm the kind of guy that doesn't even mind Windows 8 that much, which really says something.

    They also put last gen-ish hardware in the Xbox One, with DDR 3 ram you should not expect much in terms of graphical power and perfomance, which is just what Microsoft did. I do not like the general direction Microsoft pushed the Xbox One in; Family/TV. I personally would reccomend the PS4 over this, just because of the hardware differences, the only reason I bought this is because my friends were "dumb" enough to buy this.
    I'm not saying it's bad, it's just not great and it's a let down.

    I take it for what it is, games and exclusive will still be nice and look nice, but they won't ever compare to my PC in terms of power.

    I will say this is great for entertainment, but would have preferred a gaming system.

    Before I write this I just want to say, incoming Sony bots and haters because Microsoft is more successful then any other company. Okay nowBefore I write this I just want to say, incoming Sony bots and haters because Microsoft is more successful then any other company. Okay now let's just get straight to the point here, the Xbox is a fairly decent console that can get all your entertainment in a couple of seconds. The design could be a lot better than what they could be, but honestly it's not as a big deal as people are making it out to be, the design of it is actually very appealing and quite pretty as you might say.

    My favorite part though is the kinect, sure the games on the Kinect might not be that good but motion controls and voice controls have to start somewhere. Since it is separate I will give the Kinect a score, 8/10, the gestures and voice commands are fairly easy to use and are simple and quite fun to use. But it is cool how you put some voice commands or motion movement into a game, like Ryse, Alien isolation and Battlefield 4. Overall the kinect is separate a part to the Xbox, since it doesn't come with the package anymore, it is worth it but a little over priced.

    Now let's move to the hard ware and software, let me get this straight, the Xbox can run in 1080p and 60fps, people just deny it because the critics say so. The play station however can't, or can barely handle it because it only uses half it's hardware and software to play with the graphics. Take that sony bots, cause I just listened to a critic. But anyways, it uses windows 8 and it is "always on" which I find unnecessary to put in a gaming console. That is a problem though, because when a game freezes I can't just turn my Xbox off and turn it back on, I have to go back and unplug my Xbox completely to get the system to fully reset.

    Now the controller was bashed a lot on day one. The controller in itself is bulky and a bit big, but if you start playing, within a week you will get use to it. I personally like the design of the controller besides the bumpers, the bumpers are just way to hard to push, and sometimes I slip off the trigger and accidentally hit a bumper. But other than that the only thing that is different from the 360 controllers is the D-pad even though I don't really use it AT ALL. But if you go from 360 to the ONE it will take some time to get use to the controllers.

    But over all the Xbox is a great console and in my opinion MY opinion, it is better then the ps4, because other than playing games, you can't do anything on your play station. But that doesn't change the fact that they are both great consoles, I just think the Xbox is better, but if you have friends on one play station, get that. That's how I would recommend which game console to get, if you have friends on it, get that one.

Although, it has a few issues which are somehow annoying. First of all, almost all games are too expensive inside the app store. Any online shop offers better pricing in any case. This is a waste of potential: It would be nicer to have all games as downloads because there would be no need to carry all of the discs. Another show stopper are the slow updates: From time to time, updates are unbelievable slow. Downloading 600 MB could take a whole day instead of minutes. On other days, the Xbox One can load huge games with maximum speed.
    The controller is great and the lifetime of the batteries is acceptable. Unfortunately, the wireless headphone option of the controller delivers not so good sound as it should. Games are running almost fine without frame drops and also the visual quality is perfectly excellent. The dashboard is just ok, not great. It is centered more about multiplayer and communities instead of strong game properties. For racing games, another show stopper is the leak of external music integrations. Thus, it is not possible to use e.g. Spotify. Final words about the standby mode: The console never goes down completely, unless the user switches off the power. This is great for updating the device overnight to accomplish the issue of slow updates. On the other side, this option continuously consumes power, and the cooling system makes some noticeable noise. Thus, switching the power off is the only doable option for the living room. Nevertheless, the Xbox One is a remarkable effort of Microsoft.

I won't even address the systems technical shortcomings, but I will say that my brother has missed out on many of the great games of this console generation. Microsoft dropped the ball by not making games the focus of their console. They have paid hollow lip service time and time again to their commitment to games, and have left a long line of unreleased cancelled first-party games. My brother is left with a console that was initially purchased at a $100 premium [over the ps4] that provides what is arguably the weakest platform to experience cross-platform games on. I really hope he gets rid of the system soon and gets a new PC or ps4 pro. Expand
