Hands-On: Xbox One Review

 

Xbox One Review | With that in mind, I thought that it may be useful if we did put together a hands-on review of the Xbox One based on our experience from E3 2013 and the demos of the hardware and some games that we got behind closed doors.

If you are already committed to PS4, I don’t think that you will change your mind now. If you’re on the fence, think about whether or not Kinect and Microsoft exclusive games like Halo are critical for you. In the end, it really comes down to that.

Microsoft Xbox One

 

Microsoft didn't just make a new game system with the Xbox One, it made a comprehensive gaming and home-entertainment hub you can control with your voice. Be prepared to pay a lot for all of these features (especially if you want voice control), but...

Voice controls work remarkably well. TV and OneGuide integration is seamless. Skype, facial recognition, and other features are useful and polished

No backward compatibility or legacy game options. Voice controls and facial recognition aren't available on Kinect-less $399 version. Gesture controls don't work consistently. PS4's DualShock 4 is a better controller

Microsoft is thinking big with the Xbox One. Instead of building a game system that's essentially a beefed-up version of the Xbox 360, like Sony did with the PlayStation 4, it built a comprehensive media hub for all of your living room entertainment....

Xbox One Review

 

Microsoft is certain the Xbox One is their key to taking over living room entertainment in its entirety. Experiencing the Xbox One for the first time will almost certainly remind users of their first time working with Windows 8 - there's a lot of tiles...

Microsoft Xbox One Review: A Promising Start

 

The Xbox One is impressive console with the potential to redefine the home video game console, but it needs a number of refinements to make that a reality.

Kinect is a powerful UI Tool ; Multi-tasking is fast and easy ; Games showcase strong performance and increased graphical fidelity

Lack of App Channel content ; 100 more than a PS4 ; Kinect as a game instrument remains unproven ; Xbox Live is essential for most apps and functions

Xbox One review: a fast and powerful work in progress

 

Your new running shoes have WiFi, but there are still -- still! -- no flying cars. We've got mini-supercomputers in our pockets, but where's the kitchen

Great battery life ; The best analog sticks on any gamepad ; Rumble triggers

Shoulder buttons are cumbersome ; Requires AA batteries

The Xbox One's controller is mostly a refined version of the last-gen gamepad, with the new shoulder buttons being the only real step backward.

Xbox One review

 

Microsoft didn't mean to take over your living room. When it launched in 2005, the Xbox 360 was just a device for games — "the Holy Grail of gaming," in the immortal words of MTV's Sway. It would show your pictures if you plugged in a thumb drive, but...

Strong launch lineup ; Snapping" video apps perfect for multitaskers ; Kinect voice commands can be powerful

Clunky TV integration ; Uninspired design ; Kinect voice commands are unreliable

A game console with much bigger aspirations

Review: Microsoft Xbox One

 

Microsoft aims for family room domination with the Xbox One

Excellent build quality- Solid graphics performance- Slick OS and user experience- Xbox One controller one of the best- Shaping up as multimedia powerhouse

Party Play system currently unintuitive- New controller Menu button takes getting used to- Non-upgradeable internal hard drive- Nondescript looks, still has external power brick- Outgunned by PS4 performance
