When the Xbox One was announced the presentation was filled with a bravado and bluster I felt Microsoft had not earned. It almost felt like Microsoft were telling consumers what the future of gaming was, as opposed to asking what they wanted. That bit them in the ass of course and over the next few months Microsoft listened to customer feedback and edited the proposition of the Xbox One to suit customer needs.
There were still one or two sticky issues for me in relation to the Xbox One:
A :) It’s 499.99 price tag
B :) The always on nature of Kinect – the Microsoft mini-spy
I was unsure if these two issues would hamper my experience of the Xbox One. Luckily I’m here to tell you that neither deters me from recommending Microsofts newest console not only to die-hard Xbox fans, but to many other folks on the fence at the outset of this generation.
