What's your opinion of the Xbox One and why?
Initially, I said I would never get that spy device. But now they are offering it without the kinect, and I am slowly changing my mind.
What about it appeals to you, comparing it to the competition (other than the no-spycam version)?
Well, I still use the 360 a lot. I already have Live gold. Now that they are extending the free game program to One, I can get free games on both
Paying a membership to get free stuff isn't free.
Yea, but 2 games on the 360 and 2 on the One every month for $35 a year is pretty good. Not technically free, but pretty cheap!
How big of a selection do you have for these games? Is it only one or 2 that you get, or is it a handful that you can pick from?
I am not sure what you are asking. But the the 2 free games are different every month. The PS3/4 also gives you 2-3 free games every month. The Xbox 1 uses the same model as PS. The 360 lets you download an keep.
So not a big difference between the paid serviced anymore. Though I initially hated the One, now I can get it without Kinect and start getting free games each month with my existing Live Gold.
To clarify: the free games, do you get to choose from many games, or can you only select from a couple to redeem your free games?
No, we do not get to choose. Both the Xbox and PS pick the games. We never know what they are until they are about to release them.
Ah. And if you already have the game, do you not get the game, or do you get another game?
No such luck if you already have the game. One time was Halo 3, and I already had that one. But all the others were new to me. However, if I had lost my Halo 3 disk, I could have gotten it again then. Lol
Negative. It can't handle graphically intense games and doesn't have enough exclusives to get me to even think about it.
