Reuben Williams-Smith writes: "I don’t like the Xbox One. I don’t hate it, because hate is something I reserve for bigots, escort missions and people who talk in the cinema. But the Xbox One is not a console that I have any particular affinity towards. It’s overpriced, it under-performs, and I have no interest in the Kinect, voice activation or any of the other features tacked on in the name of progress...But for all of the Xbox’s spiteful, patronizing, money-grabbing drawbacks, I’m still glad that it exists. Because the alternative is worse."
