Everything about Microsoft's new game console, its first in eight years, is designed to make you do as little as possible. That means running multiple apps at the same time, a "snap" function to plop stuff on-screen into a picture-in-picture style, and--eek--a reliance on voice controls.
Should you buy this? No. Wait. You don't need something to hook up through your TV right now, unless it has games to accompany it, and the Xbox One, as cool as some of its features are, has a dearth of games. You can wait. How long? That's up to you: whenever there's a sum of games that make it worthwhile to you, go for it.
