The xbox one is the worst console I have ever owned. It is a $500 paperweight that is absolutely atrocious. Every person involved with the design of this machine should be fired immediately. Its embarrassing.
TERRIBLE! After the success of the 360 how did you come up with with this abomination? Despite being ugly, it is not functional at all. Why would you put a single USB on the side of the machine. The purpose of the USB is primarily to charge the controllers. So, you put it on the side? Which makes it difficult to plug it in + shortens the length of the already shorter charger cord. The headset is awful, even worse than the one from the 360 (which is amazing). The ear piece is convex, and not ergonomically at all, constantly slides off of a user's ear. Did you even test this before you produced it? The kinect is a joke and the voice recognition is WORTHLESS.
Interface and software:
The xbox one interface is a bloody abortion. I used to think that the PS3 had the worst and most unusable interface in the world, but you guys managed to one-up it with this. It is just terrible/awful/dumb. The simplest tasks are now nearly impossible. I frequently have to use google just to execute basic features.
Your friend just sent you an invite! QUICK HOLD THE GUIDE BUTTON! But, don't just click it because you'll go to the home screen and don't hold it too long or your controller turns off! Hold it for just the right amount of time to accept their invite.
I can't say enough terrible things about the kinect voice commands. They are a stupid novelty that provide no value at all. "xbox redeem code" nope, doesn't work. Better google how to redeem a code because the interface is god awful.
Want to stream videos from your network drive? A feature that worked great on the 360, doesn't work at all on the xbox one. Sorry, this piece of junk just doesn't do it.
Party chat with your friends? Sorry, rarely works - this is a garbage console.
In complete seriousness, you guys did an awful job. This is a crappy and nearly unusable console. After nailing so many things with the 360 I would have expected it to be better. I would throw it off a cliff if it weren't for Halo. Count your luck stars that someone had the foresight to buy an outside company to do something worthwhile for the Xbox. Its too bad that Bungie is gone and 343 with fat, bald, Frankie are slowly destroying the franchise by making it an uncompetitive COD clone.
