Microsoft Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle

CNET
22 November 2014
  • Summary: While the PS4 remains our overall preferred choice in the game console race, the Xbox One's significant course corrections -- including an aggressive pricing structure -- make it a better deal than ever, and a much better bargain than when it first debuted.
  • Pros: Microsoft's Xbox One offers impressive graphics and can integrate and control live TV with Kinect (which will drive the price up by roughly $100). It's got a slightly better roster of exclusive games for the rest of 2015 compared to that of the PS4. Xbox Live Gold is no longer required for basic ...
  • Cons: The Xbox One's current interface is more convoluted than that of the PS4. With the Kinect models, live TV integration is still fraught with frustrations, voice commands don't always work and the system lacks full DVR integration. PS4 generally delivers slightly better installation times, graphics...

Microsoft Xbox One ( without Kinect)

CNET
6 June 2014
  • Summary: The cheaper, no-Kinect version of the Xbox One gives buyers a better deal by eliminating the one part of the console they probably didn't want to begin with -- but the PS4 remains a compelling alternative.
  • Pros: This more affordable Xbox One bundle drops the Kinect and matches the price of the PS4. Microsoft has also killed the paid Xbox Live Gold requirement to access entertainment apps.
  • Cons: The Xbox One's dashboard is still confusing at times and the PS4 generally delivers slightly better graphics and performance on multiplatform games so far. Selection of must-have titles is still weak compared to that of previous generation consoles.

Microsoft Xbox One Game Console

Sound & Vision Magazine
27 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Microsoft wants to take over the living room. OK, maybe that premise isn’t exactly new. About 10 years ago, tech pundits used the same words when discussing the Windows Media Center PC, an all-in-one solution that combined computing and home entertainment in a big, ungainly box.

  • Conclusion: If you want a video game console that does more than play games, the Microsoft Xbox One is the best choice. There's a bevy of streaming partners, a built-in Blu-ray Disc player, the ability to stream content from a connected computer or storage device, and more.
  • Pros: Powerful gaming, Live TV integration, Kinect included
  • Cons: Spotty Kinect voice control, Pay wall for most online features, Large size, power brick

Microsoft Xbox One System Review

Game Chronicles
28 January 2014
  • Excerpt: It’s been a long time coming but we finally have our review wrapped up for Microsoft’s new Xbox One. I had to stop myself short there from calling it a “video game system” because Microsoft has a grand vision for their not-so-little black box.
