To all of those who skipped on XB1 because you didn't want Kinect, if you bought the console you'd see how convenient and ambitious it makes the XB1 as a whole.

The price is very well justified for a game console that can do so much more, as opposed to a console that costs $100 less and does games slightly better, also introducing no innovation outside of hardware specs.

That's what my PC is for, hardware specs. Not to mention my XB1 can connect to my PC to steam whatever I want.

That being said, I did have a PS4 preorder but cancelled it a month before and decided on the XB1, best decision yet.

Well put, I totally agree. I don't want the same console with better graphics, give me some innovation.

I'd have to agree with you, myself and all my friend are loving the OS & features. It really is amazing.

I dunno, the PS4 does voice commands better than the Xbone

Also does motion control, other than the Snap which doesn't work with Skype, and intergrating into Cable, if your inside the grid and the cable box supports it, doesn't do much else

I don't want anything overshadowing the games and actual gameplay. This is what the kinect 2.0 is capable thanks.

Don't mind it for voice controls when it works but not going to pay $100 premium. Waiting for a price drop and a hardware fix for whatever is causing the possible disc drive problems.

ambitious yes, convenient? I really really doubt the XBL does things that hasent been done before but faster already.

MS built a combination entertainment-media center while Sony built a pure gaming system. For game performance GDDR5 has no equal, there's a reason why it's used in gpu's. The gpu is also up to 50% faster in the PS4. If you're looking for the fastest system with the smoothest gameplay and best graphics and don't care about whether you can talk to your console or watch cable tv on it, get the PS4. If you're more of a casual gamer and don't mind the technical shortcomings but like the TV and kinect features get the Xbox One. That about sums it up.
