Whenever I see people complaining about voice commands or the UI I honestly wonder if they are talking about the same console that I have. That stuff works so well for me.

Good read, I think most consumers are betterthsyf just waiting a year or so. Let the consoles work out their gremlins.

Also, I can't take this guy seriously if he thinks that console market is eventually going to br overran by the cell phone/tablet market. I think consoles will be top dog for quite a while,.as evident by how much each console is selling.

When I think gaming, I think NY Times.

To be fair, almost every media outlet in existence have opinion pieces about anything and everything.

Heck, even ESPN has GrantLand, which has a dozen takes on HBO's True Detective.

Unfortunately me and the NY times disagree on this one. The family and I play the X1 constantly and the PS4 just sits there. Its great that they decided to write an article about gaming and try and make themselves relevant to us, but I totally disagree with almost everything they said.

It took him 2 days to get it all set up?

I had everything set up in under 30 minutes and most of the time was spent downloading/updating the games I bought which took around 2 hours.

Was this a comparison article or just a post on how horrible the Xbox One is?

My favorite part: "I spent hours setting up the Xbox One." Really!? HOURS!? I turned it on, signed in with my Live account, loaded my gamertag, and then calibrated Kinect and I was done.

My xbox one was set up and working in under 20 minutes. People like that are the reason x1 is looked at so negatively, seriously I don't understand...
