Five Reasons to Buy an Xbox One

Console Monster writes: "Come November, both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One will be on sale, over seven years since their predecessors hit the shop shelves.

Despite the four month wait, gamers are already taking sides over the next-generation of consoles in a similar fashion to The Twilight Saga..." (Tag Invalid, Xbox One)

I agree with you on all five of those reasons. The exclusives look amazing. And the entertainment system is actually looking like like something i would use in my free time, super bowl parties, and just watching T.V.
darthv72  +   931d ago
there is only 1 reason that matters to me. Desire.

its the same reason I have for getting a ps4 as well. no other forms of justification are needed or warranted.
golding89  +   931d ago
No one can argue that xbox one has more features than ps4. Ps4 has better specs that's for sure. Though differences in graphics for both system will be almost non-existent but the xbox one seriously is capable of doing so much more with kinect.
Why not get the all in one for 100 bucks more?

I already got a ps3. why should i get the ps4 with just a better spec? :-/
meatysausage  +   931d ago
The PS4 does a lot. It too is just as much as an enterntainment console as the xbox is, just without the cable tv. It just doesnt really get marketed in such a way and for various reasons. Get both and be happy

LOL good let all the uninformed doggies get the xbox one more features please name them inb4 someone says its a dev kit if so what games have you made before not counting the ones on mincraft.

Five reasons not to ...
DDR5 > DDR3
PS+ > Gold
$100 in pocket > Always on kinect
Region Free > Region Locked
Remote Play Vita > Smart Glass
hankmoody  +   931d ago
Actually, you're off on two big points. The Xbox One is region free. And how many people actually have a Vita as opposed to the number of people who have a smartphone? You really think everyone who buys a PS4 is going to throw another $350 down for a Vita? Yeah, okay.
_QQ_  +   931d ago
exactly noone wants a dead on arrival handheld.
hankmoody  +   931d ago
Sorry, I meant $250. Typo!
wynams  +   931d ago
so your phone that is smart glass compatible was free? Chances are it cost about as much as a Vita.

NEXT!
Thehyph  +   931d ago
Sony has shown smartphone integration in an official video. The only thing the Vita adds is remote play.

I'll be able to use my Android phone as well as my Vita for everything else.

Edit: Obviously not all features of this integration is confirmed yet, but I would expect the smartphone bit to be pretty much the same as smart glass.

NewWhiteFeather  +   931d ago
@ Wynams, while I don't agree with their comparison of smartphone to vita, almost everyone already has a smart phone purchased for other reasons and the fact that it can be used in conjunction with the system is an extraneous yet nice detail. Your argument holds zero water.
n4rc  +   931d ago
I'll take traditional ram over memory ripped out of a videocard. In case you haven't noticed.. These systems need to do more then render graphics.

2nd one made me laugh.. Xbl>>pan

Its region free and who actually owns a Vita? Smart glass is way more practical.

Your free to believe what you want.. But don't think for a second your opinion is anything more then that, an opinion
aiBreeze  +   931d ago
So you are saying Xbox Live gold is better than PS+? While I agree Xbox Live is better than PSN but PS+ offers far better value for money and pays for itself ten times over for the three months subscription I paid for.
n4rc  +   931d ago
That's why I said psn. OK it auto corrected to pan.. Lol

PS+ is a game distribution service. Its a completely seperate service from xbl or psn. At least how I see it.

Microsoft doesn't have a competitive product for it to compete with..

And it is a great value provided you want the games offered.. When I had it free after the hack, not one title was worth the download.. But from what I've heard, the selection is much improved and free trials rarely include anything good Lol

So yeah.. Xbl > psn
But PS+ is its own animal without real competition

"PS+ is a game distribution service. Its a completely seperate service from xbl or psn. At least how I see it."

But PSN+ is compulsory for the PS4 like live is for the One so they are in the same boat as they both do the same thing except PSN+ offers the distribution service and Live doesn't. It doesn't matter how you see it as they are in competition with each other. PSN is like the Silver account for the Xbox One

PS+ gave 64 free games over a 1 year period from June 2012 - June 2013 and costs the same as XBL Gold.

Laugh it up numbones!
NEXT!
Rhinoceros  +   931d ago
DDR5 was chosen to avoid latency issues with the Cloud. PS+ is just barely catching up to XBL, get serious. Xbox is no longer region locked.

Knowledge is power.
wynams  +   931d ago
XBone will not have servers available at launch in several major countries ... NEXT!
hankmoody  +   931d ago
But in this day and age, who DOESN'T have a smartphone?
Brasi1989  +   931d ago
"the Xbox One can save vital space under your television."
This part made me laugh because you still need a cable box for the Xbox to work its TV integration.
PrivateLeroy  +   931d ago
Its about the games to me, I would love a Xbone for a few games that look promising. Titan fall to be exact (at the moment). Whereas in the same perspective I feel the same about the PS4. Features are nice, but its the games that capture a real gamers attention.
JustPlay4  +   931d ago
Thats It?

well only reason on this list thats good is #1
Rest of them I could care less about
Psychotica  +   931d ago
Kinect is a reason not to get it and many people already have entertainment devices like Smart Tv's, Tivo's etc
n4rc  +   931d ago
It isn't a cable box replacement. It integrates your TV experience into the Xbox. Does your TiVo already do that?

But you would know this if you had done even 10 seconds of research before complaining about what you don't know.
Psychotica  +   931d ago
Who said anything about a cable box?? I am talking about Xbox pushing Netflix, Hulu and all that type of stuff that other devices already do.
iistuii  +   931d ago
Exclusive games. In my opinion the X1 launch exclusives are the ones I am looking forward to the most.
WarThunder  +   931d ago
Exclusives? lol

The only game that im a bit interested is Titan fall but thats also on PC...So im getting the PC version.

Not wasting my money on a $500 console for 1-2 "exclusive games"

Xbox day onefor me
wynams  +   931d ago
RUMOR: 21 launch countries now down to 13 for the X1
