Locked: Xbox One: Where Are The Cons?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Xbox One: Where Are The Cons?

It's a fantastic console but I would say its biggest con is that its predecessor may have been the best console ever built (not talking build quality here :)). The 360 had the specs, games and infrastructure that made it an incredible console. With X1 I actually think they tried a bit to hard, and relied to heavily on the legacy of previous generations games.

Only had mine a month.

So far what has annoyed is the controller using batteries (and not lasting a great deal of time), UI that frequently doesn't load properly and horrendous installation times.

In terms of games, I am only playing console exclusives on X1. I have really enjoyed what I have played so far. However, the options outside of Forza games and shooters is not impressive.



Well, I'm pleased you like your X1.

Yep and most should be ignored. There are facts but those facts doesn't make it less enjoyable at all really. 



Have any of you noticed that Jega always create controversial threads and then he goes MIA?

$10 more per year in online costs than the PS4 and $60 more a year than the wiiu and PC

Xbox live is supa cheap on eBay, I got it for like 30 dollars. and it's 2 dollars more than psn on amazon..





The future looks a lot brighter on the PS4. If you allow yourself to see it, you would know that its true. Now don't get me wrong. The Xbox One is a good console, but its not the best. And that matters.

The real con this gen is that they came out at the same time. I had to choose and the second year the excitement was gone. Now I'm too busy playing game and have no time for another console. Can't catch em all this gen.
Plus now I've foolishly started up Elite Dangerous again on my laptop, bye bye any remaining time. It's out on XBox One too, try it :)

with his pro xbox cap on.





I don't see many games next year for PS4 that would appeal to me. Uncharted, Ratchet Remake and if by some miracle (have high doubts) Horizon zero dawn comes out. Xbox one Im interested in Halo Wars, Gears of War , Scalebound, Crackdown, Forza Horizon 3 and maybe Recore if it is action adventure like it is hinted to be and comes out next year.
