I was a PS guy through and through, PSOne, PS2 and PS3, but this gen I opted for the XBox due to its more entertainment centric platform. It ties into my Directv receiver, I get espn3 now (watchespn app) etc. The voice commands work 90% of the time. Forza 5 rocks.

Anyone have one? Thoughts? Any cool easter eggs?
 
Yup, got the kids one. So far, so awesome!

Not supporting Dolby was kind of a buzzkill. I was really looking forward to this, as I have a great home theatre, and my previous BDP didnt support Netflix or Amazon Instant apps with Dolby TruHD Surround Sound. I fully expected the XBox to support this, only to realize after hooking it up, it doesnt.

I thought directv didn't support espn3?

It doesn't. But the XBox one has a watchESPN app which does. With Optimum as my ISP, ESPN apparently cant figure out if I have a cable package with them or not. I got the passcode, and was authorized. I used the app last night. It works.
 
I got my Xbox One at launch and have been very pleased with it. If I had to nitpick my only problem is that since me and my brother look a bit a like the Xbox will sign each others profile in whilst the other one is playing. I could probably turn that feature off but its such a small problem that it doesn't really bother me.

lol, my first is due in Feb. Are you telling me this thing will collect dust?

Yes. I've got 2 kids under 4 and the oldest is finally able to play with me. 4 years of dust gathering.

Netflix on the other hand is worth every penny. No commercials, loads of kid stuff.
