Question about XBox One

#1lifelackPosted 8/15/2014 12:45:46 PM
I'm looking to buy either a PS4 or a Xone.

Now there's a 1Tb Call of duty coming soon.

Is there is any need for the kinnect? This system won't come with it.

Also... is there in canada a better deal right now?

btw I have a download code for Titanfall and a XBox live Gold card worth a 1 year subscription.

Any games coming soon that is not a shooter?

Thanks.

No need for the Kinect unless you really want the voice commands and a few extra game features. I personally enjoy mine but it's not mandatory.

Not sure about deals in Canada, but the CoD bundle looks amazing.

Games coming soon (just listing some): Halo, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Forza Horizon 2, and a plethora of third party games.

Good luck on the decision!

Personally Id just find a deal on a kinectless One then buy a nice 1Tb 7200 rpm external and the CoD seperate. Makes more sense and would cost about the same.

AND you would own a real copy of the game then and not any of that digital nonsense.

Squall has a point with the physical game part, but the kinectless system is $400 alone. CoD will be $60 and I highly doubt you can get a quality 1tb 7200 rpm hard drive for only $40 to match the $499 price point on the console.

Plus, TC might like the system and controller looks, which adds some collateral value to the system.

Personally I love kinnect (pausing and playing movies without turning pad back on, switching to different games/apps, skype, logs in my friends when they walk in the room, fun for games like ryse to shout troop orders etc) but if the cod bundle takes your fancy you can probably get one cheap second hand from early adopters who didn't care for kinnect

Got my kinectless for $350, got a Touro 1TB 7200 rpm for $59.99, and cod is $59.99. If you shop stingy is perfectly possible but you have to wait for sales.

Not saying it can't happen. He is on a time limit though because the special edition consoles usually go pretty quick. He needs to get a preorder in soon to make sure he gets one. Plus, like I said, he may really like the CoD console look. I don't blame him, looks pretty sick and I'm not even the biggest CoD fan!

If I was more of a cod fan (never tried it much, more a halo fan, new one seems interesting tho) I'd definitely get it. Looks cool and 1tb is nice.

What I can't understand tho is with all the bundles comic out why not make an awesome halo mcc themed box? Could even have modified voice controls "Cortana, go to Halo channel!" ;)

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will be available for the Xbox One & PS4 on August 19, 2014. It will support 2-4 player co-op. Definitely worth purchasing when it comes out.
