    I've been thinking of buying an Xbox One. I figured I'd get some perspective first by asking questions in this thread.

    I see some Xbox Ones have Kinect. My understanding is that that is like the Wii with the game reacting to controller movements. If I get the Kinect can I still play all Xbox One games or only Kinect oriented games? What are the trade-offs?

    I have a ps4 but don't like many of the games, so I too was thinking of getting an xbone. Can't decide.

    I could still go for PS4. Til recently, my bias was pro PS4; it still might be. I don't have a PS4. I had PS3 a long time ago (PS2 and PS before that).

    This is a two and a half year old review on Kinect 2.0. Very informative though.

    I only liked one game(other than god of war) on ps2. And it was a chinese game where you were fighting in a battle. Sometimes i stole a horse and ran around chopping everyone.

    I have XBOX One Love it. Kinect did not get maybe I will. I like the free games with a Gold subscription as well that you can have with 360 as well.

    I traded my 360 in got a ton of cash which I put toward the One with 1 TB mem and Halo preinstalled so I was happy.


    Works well with windows 10 and I can control some aspects of One with my Tablet, laptop and phone.

    Another Question: It looks like buying Xbox One Elite console will add a Benjamin to the tab. What do you get extra, and is it worth it?

    I've heard of various subscriptions for games. Why would one want a gold subscription?

    IT was cheap and I got a deal on it to begin with cost me about 20 bucks to the whole year. I get two games free per month and other permissions with XBOX
