If you want games, and nothing else, then this isn't the console for you.

Xbox One is more than just a gaming console. Microsoft envisioned from the beginning a device that not only offers the best in video games, but also in entertainment and services. When it was first unveiled, gamers appeared to resent the "all-in-one" entertainment focus, but with a solid launch lineup of games, all was quickly forgiven.

Just to quickly run off the bullet points of this article.

You can Skype with friends and family. That feature I can use with my family.

You can stream movies and watch television. I know it was announced recently that X1 will support SkyDrive. MS even has their own streaming service for movies.

And the most important thing, IN MY OPINION, is that you can get in shape with Xbox Fitness. You can download p90x for free if you want, but you wont get the features that I think are invaluable, like the heartrate sensor, body temperature, etc. Things letting you know if your intensity is where it needs to be.

Aren't all consoles more than gaming consoles anymore? Even the lowly Wii U does much more than just play games.
