So last Sunday and Monday Target had a "flash" sale on electronics and I ended up dipping into my savings a bit to get a XBox One, PS4 and a Vita (yes they had 5 original 3G enabled Vitas in stock!) No sales tax where I live so it ended up being an $800 day instead of a $1000 day paying full retail for everything. Anyways I wanted to share what has me loving the XBox One so much! This is my first Xbox and have always been a bit biased against Microsoft as a gaming company and have looked down on the Xbox. But, boy was I wrong. The most impressive thing is Microsoft's Deals with Gold program. They are not afraid and instead embrace huge sales on full retail titles. I've already picked up TitanFall for $40, PvZ Garden Warfare for $24 and on eBay Forza 5 for a $29 digital copy of the game! So already in the past week I've gotten a nice digital collection of games at retail competitive prices - something PS4 is really afraid to do and won't budge on their prices except for indie games. It seems that every week a new retail game goes on sale and that way I can simply buy what is up that week and build up my collection in an economical way. Also having Guacamelle as a free game is pretty incredible - this is a brand new game and its free. AWESOME Next up is the snap feature; I'm actually finding that awesome with my 150" projector screen setup - I can watch my iTunes content from my Apple TV while racing in Forza etc. It is awesome and something I will use a TON. Speaking of videos how awesome is it that I can make custom channels in OneDrive; when I found that out I made a Seinfeld channel and finally a simple way to access Seinfeld without needing a media center PC to stream it over. The app approach to OneGuide makes their TV features pretty useful for me even though I don't have cable. The controller is solid (love the rumble in Forza) and I'm likely to pick up their remote control as the Xbox One is a console that is nearly always on either feeding me video content or games and that remote control seems rather handy. The games look great and I've been loving this box that a few months ago couldn't of imagined I'd ever touch or want. The PS4 has a long way to go to have me make that my primary non-Nintendo system. It may end up being my GameFly system as that seems to be the economical way to play games on PS4. Anyways those are just some of the things that has me just in love with the Xbox; I wonder as I get more games for PS4 if that box will be something I love as well or simply play games on. Good job Microsoft - all of this coming from a Nintendo die hard that loves his Wii U; but also now has made room for an Xbox P.S. The two annoyances have been 10 year olds screaming into the game chat (have turned that off), and Forza 5 asking for money when I chose my first car in the game (a Mercedes - a drive one in real life so why not pick that one) - other than that really impressed.
