Is a Xbox One viable for me if I don't plan on getting gold?

I have a PS4 and pay for PS+ there and I really don't want another subscription annually and all multiplat will be bought on the PS4 anyway. I see that the XO is heavily multiplayer focused on the 1st party front but I am interested in Scalebound and Quantum Break. Is a XO worth it?


Also enjoyed Gears single player and Halo on 360 back then....

XBL is a necessity. So no.

I'm not trying to be a smart ass at all, but if you don't want to play games online I'd get a snes or ps 2

As long as you don't mind just playing the offline portions of Xbox One games then yes, it's definitely still viable.

I am paying for plus. I just don't want to pay for ADDITIONAL subscriptions.

I don't think it'd be worth it man. I'd make the decision once Scalebound and Quantum break are closer to coming out.

You can get a free month...I THINK. But yeah you'd want gold especially since they're now giving out free games twice a month.

How do you know someone games on a PC? Don't worry, they'll tell you.

Some online heavy games come with a day or a week of xbl trial. So there's that.

honestly i have both XBL and PS+ because of the free games both companies release. If you buy the codes online you can find 12 months for both XBL and PS+ for about $80 combined, which is low enough for me to get both. The Amount of games you can get on both systems with the free games programs makes both services well worth it. Just a couple games downloaded and you've broken even on your investment.
