I wanted to list off some of the Pro’s and Con’s of the Xbox One with my opinion in the direction it’s heading.
Exclusive games (Minecraft, Halo, etc)
Kinect (Convenience to get from section to section)
Built in DVR to record games
Cheap price for the specs
500GB Hard drive
Games being lendable is up to the publisher and can only be lent once
Microsoft’s attempt to create a monopoly with the accessory market
Forced on features such as the Kinect
No backwards compatibility
No access to library of games if not connected to the Internet every 24 hours
While the Xbox One’s con’s are major, the pro’s are as well. I will be getting the Xbox One because of it’s games, not the for the Media. What’s something to notice about the One is that they are using the same tactic to pull you in just like they did for the 360. I was friggin mad at the fact on how much space it took up, the wireless controllers, and the shutdown for the Original Xbox Live.
Maybe we are judging the Xbox One too much. Or maybe we we’re not. Either way I see microsoft using the same tactic they used for the 360 and that is the exclusives. Quite frankly, it has worked on me.
