Review: Xbox One (Destructoid)

Microsoft's Xbox 360 grew from being a simple game console to an all-in-one entertainment box over the last eight years or so, somehow squeezing in everything from multiplayer gaming to streaming movies and television.

Kinda another not yet review. Still plenty of good thing's good read

The console will also give you access to a couple of decent launch titles, and a fantastic new controller to play them with. But you're going to have to make the call on whether these things are worth $499 to you. If not, wait. The Xbox One will still be around when you're ready.

"Xbox One is a powerful PC connected to a cutting-edge sensor array that handles every living-room duty, from television watching to video streaming to web browsing, and it does it all with a multitasking UI that supports voice and motion control. This has to be the most full-featured game console offering ever brought to market. It does so many things that it's hard to keep track of them all!

A few key features, like social sharing and game broadcasting, are not ready for launch, making the Xbox One feel somewhat incomplete, especially when compared to its main competitor."

All I needed really. Competitor is ALSO more powerful and 100$ cheaper. Oh and dat Naughty Dog doe.

So basically its the most full featured console on the market...and it will continue to improve for the next 6-8 years. Awesome! :-)

AngelicIceDiamond1850d ago

@Rider Come on man why do you gotta only see the negative with X1?

You can't give the other console props?

Don't make me call you the "F" word now.

I hope I don't have to wait 6-8 more years for the best TV features to finally comes to regions outside US :(

Insomnia_841850d ago

Did Destructoid review a GAMES console or some other entertainment device? This thing is kind of confusing.

Ezz20131850d ago

i still say
they should wait at least a year before doing consoles reviews
it's way too early to judge a console

torchic1850d ago (Edited 1850d ago )

so basically, from what I'm seeing in all the reviews if you're into multimedia functionality and gaming is just one of the hobbies you allocate some of your time towards, this is the console for you.

I think there should be two Xbox One reviews, one for the US and one for the rest of the world because many of the Xbox One features will never see the light of day in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia & Oceania.

Volkama1850d ago

@Torchic there are far more than 2 reviews available :) I don't know where you are from, but as a UK resident I'll look at the likes of Eurogamer and CVG for info pertinent to me.

The controller has bad rear triggers, so I wouldn't bring up the remote in a positive light.

Serjikal_Strike1850d ago

Signs are pointing to what people have been saying from the start : Xbox One was rushed to meet Holiday season
It looks that way to me

AngelicIceDiamond1850d ago

@Uchiha You are the answer to my logic, well said.

Snookies121850d ago (Edited 1850d ago )

Yeah, I really don't think it has been rushed. Give it time, give the PS4 time, and they will both improve drastically over the years.

ltachiUchiha1850d ago (Edited 1850d ago )

PPl dont like to hear this but thats what updates are for. Both systems will improve as time goes with each update.

Edit: Angelic

Lol glad to assist u. cheers.

Funantic11850d ago (Edited 1850d ago )

It's considered rushed if it has overheating issues, lights of death, and cheap thermal paste.

HappyWithOneBubble1850d ago

I think both PS4 and XB1 is rushed. Should wait another year to get all the kinks out and have all features available on day one.

Condemnedman1850d ago

can it eject disc's ? yep, good enough for me then.

Gizmodo gave a very fair and unbiased review as well. A lot of good things being said on all reviews. Cannot wait till Friday!

True_Samurai1850d ago (Edited 1850d ago )

Hey everyone even tho the x1 doesn't support music usb at launch. You know have 7GB of free space on SkyDrive so you can just upload your music on that :-)

Can't Wait To Jump Ahead On Nov. 22

Snookies121850d ago

Ah, that's pretty cool. Didn't know that, thanks for the info. :]

Sm00thNinja1850d ago

Sky drive doesn't support music unfortunately :(

Soldierone1850d ago

You can't put music files on skydrive, and I'm pretty sure it can't stream it either even if it did.

At least you couldn't when I used it.

Maybe they will allow Amazon cloud music service?

True_Samurai1850d ago (Edited 1850d ago )

0_o but I'm uploading music to it from my phone tho and it's playing on my laptop.

I made a folder saying music.clicked on upload files and I chose 7 songs just to try it out. And it worked

Soldierone1850d ago

I just looked it up, seems they added it recently so it'd work with Xbox music. Thats pretty neat
