We have had snap features for years. It is called the input button. We already have a tv guide. It is called the tv guide button.

The only thing Xbone would be doing is taking up extra power and you still need a cable box for those features to work.

As far as being a game system goes it is weaker and more expensive than PS4. So what is really the point of it unless you can't live without Halo and Kinect Sports?

People make the argument that it's more convenient and faster. Cause it takes me a whole 3 or 4 seconds to switch inputs and having Kinect 2.0 lets me do it in 2 instead.

Also, your name is bound to warrant negative reactions from people too. They call people who say anything even remotely negative about the XBO Sony Ponies, so...yeah.

Because everyone knows that speaking voice commands is much faster than pressing a button of course.

With the amount of button presses i usualy have to do to get my entertainment center running, it will be definitely beneficial for me to say "xbox on" while turning on my surround sound.

It actually is. I can do it laying down under my covers. Don't even have to move. Feel myself getting sleepy, just tell the thing to pause and go to sleep.
