There's two trains of thought for this really. Some say the competition keeps prices reasonable which actually it's the consumer that keeps prices low. A monopoly can still out-price itself to the point where no one will purchase it. But then there is the R&D side. Is it good to have two concentrations of development or everyone concentrated into a single product?

- you can customize your "home page" as well...pinning games/apps, moving them around in any order, etc.

- one of the coolest things UI-related is being able to seamlessly jump between screens without losing your game progress (it essentially gets paused). also, some games will run in the background, meaning even after shutting the console off overnight, it will insta-boot that game (madden, for instance). and most apps will allow you to run them WHILE running your game, without ever losing progress. see below...

- trying to find that easter egg in battlefield? fire the game up, go into the map you're looking for, snap back to the home screen and start youtube, watch the tutorial video, and snap right back into your game. really helpful. great feature.

- if you liked the 360 controller, you'll love the x1 controller...just a better version of the best controller out there (IMO).

- kinect has some cool features...being able to simply say "xbox, record that" to capture gameplay without ever having to take your hands off the buttons/gameplay is pretty nice. turning on the console with voice as soon as you walk in a room and being recognized and signed in automatically while the system is booting to the home screen is cool. also, navigating programs with voice commands works pretty well...for instance, if i'm just going to watch netflix, i don't even have to pick up the controller...you can turn on the x1, sign in, and navigate netflix with voice-only-controls.

- some really good exclusives out there: dead rising 3, forza 5, plants vs. zombies: garden warfare, titanfall, ryse, and killer instinct. there are also some xbox live arcade games and kinect games, if either of those are your thing.

- oh, and the headset is nice. crystal clear HD quality sound.

- the snap feature is nice, and will probably be fleshed out even more in future updates.



good luck.
Thanks for the info. I have always been a xbox guy but it is nice to hear from someone who actually owns the system not some blog or article that you never know the angle of.
Looking forward to Titanfall, Fifa14, Madden etc. My kids will enjoy the kinect though I fought getting it for my 360 :)

i've heard fifa is good, but i haven't played it.

titanfall is great.

madden is ok...not a HUGE leap in graphics IMO, but you'll definitely notice the increased frame rate at first...it plays smoother. if you're into MUT, i wouldn't get your hopes up for this year's game though. the auction house is pretty dead on the x1.

if you're into bball at all, i highly recommend nba 2k14. it's fantastic. and absolutely beautiful. buddy of mine who wouldn't normally be caught dead playing a bball game got it...now, that's pretty much all he plays.

stay far, far away from nba live. it's an abortion.

as for kinect games, i've heard good things about zoo tycoon, but i haven't played it. kinect sports rivals is supposed to be really fun too.

Don't know if Microsoft would make a deal with this company, but saw on Mindblow Vsauce2 on Youtube where someone took this treadmill, and used a modded XB1/Kinect to walk in a couple of FPS games.

I really want to get one, but also feel like with all the negativity surrounding MS and the One price drops are coming and if things get really bad MS may leave the console race. Hopefully not!

Just get what you want. Even if MS ever sold the Xbox logo there would still be support for a few years. It wouldn't just stop abruptly. The only big issue that could arise is developer loyalty and concentration. Rumors are MS is entertaining the idea of selling the Xbox and that several companies are interested. So you should be safe.

Don't worry it usually takes a couple of console generations for a console to go out. I thought Nintendo would be gone by now, but they have a huge market in Japan, and the DS is helping them stay up.

If for some reason this did happen, Would be awesome if Atari/Sega would take over to see the old schoolers back in the console market.

those rumors are denied by MS...which, i guess they would be. i don't put much stock in them. besides, like you said, who gives a shit? if it happens, it happens...the product and support will still be there.

agree with your first statement completely though...get what you want.

most of the "negativity surrounding MS" is of the fanboi variety. i wouldn't worry too much about it.

as for price drops, get the titanfall bundle...that's a $65 price drop right there.

Microsoft shot themselves in the foot this gen. Sony owning the market is bad for gamers....i don't care how you look at it.
