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

 

The Xbox One, Microsoft's current-generation console, has seen a user interface upgrade and the addition of limited backward compatibility, and it's still at the top of its game.

New interface is intuitive and accessible. Powerful hardware. Incorporates live television with OneGuide, HDMI passthrough, and USB tuner supports. Limited Xbox 360 backward compatibility.

Kinect integration and voice commands have been de-emphasized to the point of almost being completely dropped. Current backward compatibility list is very small.

Conclusions If you want a pure game system, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are in a dead heat. As a media streamer , though, especially if you subscribe to cable or satellite service, the Xbox One is a better bet. The soft abandonment of Kinect...

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.

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...

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

The blueprints are all here

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
