Xbox One Review

Microsoft enters the next generation of the console wars with its oddly named Xbox One. The mountains of bad PR caused by the poor press conferences, showings, and confusing messages left a lot of people with a bad taste in their mouth leading almost all the way up to its release. Enough people seemed to forgive them though, because Microsoft claims that over 1 million units were sold on day one. I bought one of those units, and although I got a late start I’ve been playing it non-stop for the last few days in order to get a good idea of what it’s like to own.  I’ll be covering every part of its performance and features, with an overall analysis and opinion of each one, rather than the typical pros and cons list.
Physical Appearance:

There’s no hiding it. The Xbox has put on quite a few pounds this go around. It’s a few inches longer and wider, and a couple pounds heavier. That doesn’t seem like much, but it was enough that it forced me to rearrange my entertainment center to fit it where I wanted it to go.  Which was annoying, but on the other hand I have this weird fetish for really big technology. So, I really like how big it is. It makes it seem sturdier and tougher. A fact that has yet to be proven, so let’s hope there is no problem similar to the red ring of death that plagues this console.
