gaming news xbox one

Yes, you read it right! I’m going to buy the Xbox One regardless of all the crap everybody’s been throwing at Microsoft for introducing some harsh policies. The Xbox One is not at all that bad, most of the comments you find on the internet are from people who weren’t even going to buy the console in the first place, all they want to do is demean the Xbox One.

Why I Prefer the Xbox One

I’m not going to badmouth any other console, I just want to tell you why I prefer the Xbox One over the others.

I know having to check-in once every 24 hours with Microsoft’s servers is not ideal, but lets be honest; it’s not a deal breaker either. Everybody has access to the internet nowadays (at least the people, who are busy writing BS about “How they don’t like internet spot-checks”, have access to internet). Even in the unlikely scenario of your Internet going down for more than 24 hours, Microsoft has enabled the use of your mobile’s internet to perform the check. (Don’t even have mobile data? tough luck)

With the Xbox One, Microsoft is trying hard to push the concept of downloading digital games. Gone are the days when you had to wait in lines to get your hands on the major AAA titles. With the Xbox One all game releases will be available for download on the day they arrive in stores.

xbox

Unlike the Xbox 360, Xbox One lets you install the games natively on the console. Even if you have bought a disc, it will be installed on the console. So, no more scratched and unplayable discs, all your games are safe on your console’s hard drive.

No matter how much the fangirls cry and whine about sharing, Microsoft has revolutionized the way you share your games. You can now gift your games to your friends, although, they must be your Xbox Live friend for at least 30 days, but hey look at the bright side, you can gift your digital games, DIGITAL. No more driving to your friend’s house and lending them your disc when you can just press a couple of buttons and share your game with them.

Even PC gaming doesn’t allow digital sharing. (As far as I know). You can also log into your Xbox Live account from anywhere in the world and access all your games. So, you don’t have to take all your discs with you whenever you are going over to your friend’s house, all you need is an Xbox Live account.

Microsoft has also introduced the Family Sharing feature with the Xbox One where you can add up to 10 people from your friends in a special family list. (They don’t have to be actual family, you can add any friend from your list you want). The 10 Family/friends can access any game from your library and play it, they don’t even have to own the game. Check out the picture below to understand how it works and how it’s one of the best features of Xbox One.

Xbox One

I live in a country where Internet connectivity is not the best and I admit that I’ve seen my internet go down for more than 24 hours, but that doesn’t happen very often, and I’ve got my mobile data to perform the spot-check if it should ever go down.

Xbox One is the Chosen One (for Me!)

I’m buying the Xbox One because in my opinion it’s a future proof console that offers a lot of new features. I admit there are some drawbacks of the console (no one is perfect!) but the pros heavily outweigh the cons, for me at least. $500 is not a big deal when you consider all the features that you get with the console and lets not forget about the new Kinect, it’s far better than the OG Kinect.

Which console are you looking forward to buy? And why?

I just, no…just no Dilly, just no. At least stand up for you right as a consumer mate. Why didn’t you mention the flip side to all these pros you’ve listed? What if you have a family of 12 people? Then what? Why would you buy a console that becomes a gaming brick if god forbid your data and internet both die out? And what about the region locking issue? Will you enjoy receiving your Xbox One later and at a more expensive price than the US version? Are you planning to have fun hunting down the correct region games?… Read more »

Mohseen Lala First of all I don’t have a family of more than 12 people, heck I’m the only gamers in my household so 9 people on my Family sharing plan are going to be gamer friends. 😀 Region locking is not an issue at all, I mean the current gen games are region locked right? I have a 3DS it’s region locked and I don’t mind it so why would I mind the Xbox One being locked? $500, yeah I agree with you on that. I’m not a Kinect fan and even the new Kinect doesn’t justify the extra $100,… Read more »

DilawerSMalcolmSwoboda…It actually means nothing.

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-Games/Is-the-PS3-Region-Free/td-p/7913384

The consoles are regional (as in ‘we can lock games if we wanted to), but the games are not locked in 99% of cases. It’ll be the same for PS4 – they’ll leave it in the publishers’ hands like before.

Even after reading this I still don’t understand why you prefer it… Especially when you have a much more superior console like the PS4  at $100 cheaper and hassle free. I mean, what makes the Xbox One be more future proof than the PS4 when both have basically the same specs? If it’s software then that will continue to evolve with time anyway. This really makes no sense. PS3 was the first one to provide full digital releases of games but you make it sound like if the Xbox One will be the first. On top of it the PS4… Read more »

1. Other systems are and will exist for lending digital games without those restrictions (Steam is one, I believe)
2. I share games by handing the game to the other person. This isn’t going to change.
3. 10 family members? How about all of them? Again, here’s my disk, have fun, etc.
4. Play a game from your library without charges? Like… the bare minimum of what we should expect from games we’ve bought?

That feature is the only feature I like about the Xbox One. The always required Kinect and 24 hour check are what bother me. I don’t care for the Kinect and I don’t ever plan on using one. I’ve heard that you can turn it completely off, but what’s the point of having it connected if it’s going to be off 24/7? Also, if something were to happen to the Kinect, I’d have to spend most likely about $150 to get a new one or my Xbox One won’t operate which is just stupid.  The 24 hour thing, not that… Read more »

I usually wait until the launch of the console before I pass judgment on it. As it stands I won’t bother wasting my money on the Xbox One.
