Last week I purchased an Xbox One in anticipation of Halo 5. IMHO It's TERRIBLE! I wish Microsoft would have been honest about the capabilities of this system.
I have about two dozen apps I use on a regular basis. Only two of these are available on Xbox One. Okay, no big deal. I can just go to the website using IE (OOP!, NO FLASH)
The two apps I do use (NETFLIX and ESPN) are available on my smart TV. In fact, my smart TV has a much better selection of apps then Xbox One. It doesn't make any sense for me to power-up my Xbox and run Netflix through it, when my TV can do it by itself.
So I thought to myself: Surely I should be able to cast to my fancy new $350 brick, NOPE. And don't even get me started on the user interface. SHAMEFULL
I purchased my Xbox to play Halo 5, so I'm not losing any sleep over the lack of other features. I just really hate being lied to.
My shock comes from the amount of positive feedback I have been reading about this worthless device. I'm certain there must be other features that I am not utilizing. Can someone who has had a positive experience with this system please shine some light on what I missing?
Is it just me or did Microsoft really drop the ball on this one?
