Even if they remove the kinect bundle and price match PS4 I still put off buying one because:

If hard drive in xbox one stops spinning and dies out on me then Im screwed and have to buy a another xbox one console.

Its Big and Ugly and could be really loud.

Specs are still inferior compare to PS4. Im willing to consider accepting this if its cheaper than PS4. Inferior Specs should be cheaper for example a Porche 911 should not be more expensive than a Porche 911 Turbo. Powered by Cloud computing is useless now cause Internet is not mandatory on xbox one.

You can use USB for extra storage space if you need it (say for hooking up a second Hard drive)

And 2 TB external will probably be cheaper right now than any installable drive either company would offer in the first few years of their system anyways.

FWIW - all reports suggest the XB1 is whisper quiet.

What about all the operating system files stored on the internal hard drive? The system wont function properly if the internal hard drive fails?

I understand the external hard drives, but are the external hard drives only for storing saves, music, vids, pics, games, apps etc.? External drive wont store xbox one important system files?

His specific point was that the internal hard drive can fail. An external isn't going to help with that issue.

That's what I'll probably end up doing. All the games I'm getting will be digital. I already got 3 external harddrives for my Laptop. I keep Anime, Music, and Movies on them.

Well, TC, since you asked; I don't mind Burger King, but 9 times out of 10, I will choose In-N-Out Burger over anything.
