Xbox One: Five Cool Features You Didn't Know About

Even after two press conferences and a few Comic-Con presentations, a few tidbits still remain that few people are talking about. Here are five cool Xbox One features you didn't know about but should. (Xbox One)

You mean we didn't know the stuff talked about at E3,and most recently discussed at Comic-con?
mewhy32  +   861d ago
All we need to know is it costs 100.00 more because they force you to take the nsa prism spy kinect 2.0 camera and that it is far less powerful than the PS4.

You make a big deal out of 100$ , not the whole world is based in the us. I wish you lived where i live where each console retails from 700-1000$ cuz sony /ms/nintendo dont give offical support.
mewhy32  +   861d ago
well nick when you have two kids a wife and a crap load of bills to pay 100.00 is a lot of money to me. I feel badly for you because of the pricing on your side though. Those prices are crazy. But that extra hundred buys an extra controller and a game. Oh and lets not forget that PS4 also comes with a headset.

You should be playing games if u can't afford $100 extra. Games retail at $65 go cry to your wife and kids!
Antwan3k  +   861d ago
@mewhy32 apparently you can't afford a PS4 either so why even bother commenting?

considering the life of the console (5-6 years), $100 isn't much to spend at all on a piece of hardware that you're going to be using nearly everyday for half a decade..

it's an especially small price to pay considering that the Xbox One packs more hardware (and value) into the box in comparison to the PS4.. Judging from what I've seen of the Kinect 2.0, it is a very impressive piece of technology and I'm excited to see what developers are going to do with that tech since they know that every Xbox One user will have one.. By comparison, the PS4 is nothing more than a graphics upgrade to the PS3.. *yawn*

Dude I have 2 kids a wife and I'm the only one who works with an insane mortgage in NEW JERSEY, most expensive state in America. I'm getting both consoles day 1.

@Antwan3k: I think you mean the PS4 is nothing more than a graphics upgrade to the Xbox One.
mcstorm  +   861d ago
@mewhy32 do your kids not play games then because if you add move plus eye toy 3 plus nav it costs more than the Xbox one as Kinect can track you and your family you need a move for each member on your ps4.

Very bad attempt at trolling. You get one point because I feel sorry for you and your mentality.
drsfinest72  +   861d ago
give me ABSOLUTE prove that xbox is going to use the kinect to spy on us. show me your sources. do you have a friend that works for the gov't that told you that they will spy on us? ohh as a matter fo fact. your saying this because u heard outtasome regular joe?

you my friend is part of the problem with this country.
corvusmd  +   860d ago
You are clearly not very bright when it comes to this topic, I recommend you stop proving that to the whole world
Thunderhawkxbox  +   860d ago
Get a life u Sony fan boy stop trash talking u can turn off kinect from system setting so please get some information before trash talking about Xbox one
H0RSE  +   860d ago
If $100 is "dealbreaker" material, perhaps you shouldn't be buying a console in the first place? I mean the "cheap" console is $400. I really don't see how $400 = "that's not too bad," but $500 = "hey, I'm not made out of money!"

What if PS4 was $500 but Xbox was $400, would you guys arguing over the price opt for the xbox, because I'd wager many of you would still buy the PS4, making the "$100 argument," moot.

The Kinect argument is also silly, because if the tables were turned, and PS4 came with the camera and xbox did not, I could see a lot of people spinning it like, "lol, at least the PS4 comes with the camera and doesn't make you buy it separate."

this site needs to screen what gets put up, its 90% rumor or fanboy stuff or rehashed old news
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   861d ago
I still buy a game console to GAME not do my laundry while seeing my heartbeat while having one eye open watching me nail my gf...........

I think you're afraid her heart beat won't raise and realize she'sbeen faking it all this time.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   861d ago
You want some juice boo boo
Gildarts  +   861d ago
If you're so afraid of them watching you. throw away your smartphone your webcam and whatever is connected to the internet and has a camera. Because the NSA is everywhere. Yes they can even spy with the PS4. They don't need permission to spy. They can do whatever the hell they want. and if you can't live with it. it's time to pick out a rock to live under.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   861d ago
I <3 how many people seem like they got personally offended off a joke lmfao
corvusmd  +   860d ago
I think the NSA would terminate the camera if it had to watch that...any PS fanbot that trolls for a living cannot possibly have a pretty gf. in the US this is called bestiality and it's illegal
supraking951  +   861d ago
I know enough to not want it, thanks though maybe in 2 years.
corvusmd  +   860d ago
better late than never I suppose
TheSauce  +   861d ago
and.. here come the fanboys to tell us why we shouldn't buy our console of choice
rigbybot127  +   861d ago
To hell with the fanboys!
aiBreeze  +   861d ago
Lol that new trending thing is a cool feature? Just sounds like a new slightly more fancy way to advertise to me. Out of all those features, only the ingame character mapping sounds cool to me.
dcj0524  +   861d ago
It has netflix and hulu?
thrust  +   861d ago
He missed out the best feature is it is not a ps4 with psn.....

OT not really anything new tho, posting this on a gamers website is a little silly, maybe post it on a church's website or somthin.
XboxDone  +   860d ago
The best feature of the xboxone is it's internet browser so you can purchase a PS4.
Red_Devilz  +   860d ago
My take on 5 features:

1) Dont care.

2) Lame.

3) Really cool. Hats off.

4) Stupid. Not interested.

5) Unnecessary, unimaginative.

Final verdict: Won't be buying console for 1 feature out of all (I mean out of all features on XB180, including these 5).

That's no way to sum up your beloved PS4...
