Is it Worth It to Buy an Xbox One Just for the TV Entertainment Features?

#1SampsonMPosted 2/3/2014 1:28:04 PM
Serious question. I'm guy with a lot of disposable income, and the voice commands intrigue me. But I've heard mixed things about how well they'd work.

That's not to say I don't game -- I'm a big gamer, but I'm honestly less interested in the Xbox One for games because I'm not really into FPS.

No.

Spend your disposable income on something else unless you plan on using it for games.

There's probably smart/box's or TV's with these features already built in. And it's also lacking in key features like media playback and streaming.

This was my exact reaction originally.

To be honest TC, it's a silly question.

Is it really? I have cable, netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go...and having to jump from the Apple TV to the cable box to the PS3 to access these different services is a big pain. One box that puts them all together with solid voice controls appeals to me.

The TV stuff is ok. I don't even have my TV hooked up through the xbox, but I use it anyways, for the Xbox OneGuide. I'll say "xbox Oneguide, find what I want to watch, push it, and it changes the channel on my TV.

On my Xbox monitor (different TV, same room) it says "sorry we cannot find HDMI connection" but that doesn't matter, it changes the station anyways.
