Have an Original Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One X. - Had a few other Xbox's (like the launch 360, Xbox One with Kinect) but sold them off when I upgraded consoles.

Don't use them.

* No exclusives. - Games also released on PC aren't exclusive.
* 1080P or under output on my display. Yuck.
* Convoluted UI.

Hoping that 1440P support on the Xbox One X gets rolled out soon, to be fair already waited almost 6 months for it, better late than never right?

Pro's: 4k Blu-ray support? But still only outputs at 1080P on my panel. Ugh.

I just don't like Micro$oft. I do however appreciate they are in the space as competition is healthy for the industry.

I have bought a 360 (the one with almost no file storage) before for my son but even then the proprietary hard drives made me shake my head and helped cement the idea that I'll likely never buy one for myself.



A long history for me. The original one just didn't have the games I was interested in at the time. Thought I'd get a 360 when it came out, due to the PS3's price. Unfortunately I could never get my hands on one that didn't red ring, so I eventually gave up and got a Wii. The Xbox One's reveal killed that one for me right out of the gate, and by then I was strictly PC and later 3ds.



without seeing the results i bet the major is games games games. all answers are always games.



Yeah, it's mostly the games for me. I haven't been interested in their games, which is why I haven't owned one of their consoles.

I actually really like the Xbox. But Nintendo switch is currently keeping me entertained. But I have tremendous respect for it. It’s a gorgeous beast.



1. I don't like xbox one games, save sunset.
2. I already have a ps4 pro.
3. I got money for 2 or 3 consoles and a good pc,but i don't think xbox is worth.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

- I have to buy batteries for the controller, which gets expensive

Wait, seriously?

yeah! you CAN buy battery packs, but here in Canada the controllers cost 80 bucks PLUS the 20-30 for the battery pack...

PS4 controllers cost 75 and no battery pack

Switch Pro controllers cost 90, also no need for batteries.

So in other words.. because of $20 I wont by a Xbox. Gotcha.

Its a one time purchase and I am still using my battery pack since launch.

Are you being dense on purpose? That's not the ONLY reason, it's one of many. No games, what games it does have are on other systems, UI is not appealing,  it tanks my internet every time I use it, the network seems shoddy as hell for wi-fi, AND the controllers need batteries or battery packs. 

They need to get with the times. PS4 controllers have battery packs already in them, as do PS3 controllers, WiiU controllers, and Switch controllers. The fact that Microsoft still either requires AA batteries or a 30 dollar battery pack is laughable to me, and sort of the cherry on the cake. 

Don't try to misrepresent my points to make my argument look absurd. That's called a strawman fallacy.
