Do you know of anyone that bought an XB1 as a media console only?

Why would you buy a console that can play some of the best games, and will play some of the best games for the next 5-7yrs just for Multimedia?

Only? No.
However I do know someone that mainly bought it since it was pushed as a media hub. He isn't really a gamer and figured he could still get use out of it when not playing games.

How is it a media hub? I bet it cannot play tons of file formats I would want to use it for if I was only using it for a media hub.

I bought mine primarily for that benefit. I have a wii u as well and was sold on the media, connectivity with TV, etc. I have since bought a few games which I have yet to play. I use it mainly for running the TV, Netflix, hulu, amazon prime. It is nice when I have a cat laying on me that I can change channels, turn the TV off etc.
