So, how is it?
Yeah I've had that gamertag since like 06. Anyways, I know there are hundreds of reviews out there, but I'll just give my impressions so far.
-The interface is very smooth. Everything is easy to find and if you're feeling too lazy to search, just use your voice and tell the Kinect what to find.
-I love the snap feature. Basically, I can watch sports, news, etc. from my tv while I'm playing a game. It's fairly simple connecting your tv to the xbox. Just plug in your HDMI cord from your xbox one to your cable reciever. I use cox btw.
-The controller is fairly similar to the 360. I think the size is perfect for everyone. Most of my friends who I've played with loved it. The mic is great too, but it's kinda annoying taking off the controller. Feels like I'm gonna end up ripping off the cord.
-There's a lot of apps to mess around with on this console. Like many people have stated, it's more than a gaming console. I pretty much haven't even touched my computer in like a week. I do everything on there.
-Games/graphics. So far, all the games I've played (2k14, Battlefield, COD, and Forza) have been great. Huge leap from the previous consoles. My friend has a ps4 and I don't see much of a difference. Btw, watching gameplays on YouTube or whatever doesn't do either of the systems justice.
- Game installs take a ridiculous amounts of time. Took me like 45 minutes to download 2k14. Maybe it's my internet connection, but I've seen other gamers also complain. PS4 installation times are way faster. I mean like 99% faster. But it does help you can do other things on the console while it installs the game.
-Glitches. So far I've had no success starting a party with my friends while playing a game. Other glitches include the Kinect not recognizing you when you turn on the console so it takes forever to sign in. Also, the Kinect will sometimes randomly pick up sounds from your tv and think you're giving it a command.
-Music. I don't know about you guys, but I love listening to music while I play. For now, the console won't play music via USB, bluetooth, etc. There is an app for XBOX music you can have up while playing, but not all the music I listen to is on there.
Overall, it's a pretty solid console. Lots of work to be done though like most expected. Very grateful mines hasn't broke down...........yet. So far, I'd give it an 7.5/10.
