Xbox One - Your Only Choice Today
With the PS4 downgraded to a risk at best, we look at your only next-generation console option today. The mighty Xbox One. Microsoft secured exclusive gaming titles for launch day, the unit looks good, it also has some nice add-ons right out of the box.
Microsoft is marketing the Xbox One as more than a gaming console. In the image above, we see Games, Movies & TV, Music and even Apps. This includes the all-important Netflix, which in my home is responsible for a large percentage of entertainment time.
When it comes to the features, the One integrates into your living room or home theater and doesn't just compliment it. With the HDMI input, your other devices pass through the Xbox One, making it a voice remote control with the ability to turn on your other IR devices either by the joystick or voice commands.
As you can imagine, the Xbox One also provides next-generation grade graphics for gaming. It also has a few more games available right now over Sony's PS4, but I don't know anyone purchasing all of the launch day titles. If sports games play a role in your family time, like it does mine, all of the favorites are there - basketball, football, soccer and so on.
The grass is always greener, this time in compilation mode. I would hate to be the guy with a defective PS4 and defective Xbox One. Some early adapters reported issues with Xbox One's optical drive. The number of reports online pale in comparison to the number of defective PS4 units, but the information is clear, some are not working properly.
The good news is retail chains have plenty of units available so you can simply walk in and exchange a One if it's defective. If there is a wide spread problem, we'll know about it Xmas day when thousands are opened and powered on for the first time.
