How did you guys screw this console up so badly?

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.

Hardware:

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.

Peace.

M$ probably just wants to remake the console with the added features and make everyone pay the same amount again.

Complain much? The Xbox 360 was never perfect in the beginning, but look where its at today, with 10 years to get it right. The Xbox One is in the same state, its NEW. I bet in a few hears that One will be better. That's the risk you take when buying a first gen anything, there's always bugs and things to be worked out, its common sense when buying something new, especially if you do your homework, you'll see the 360 launch was awful and they had recalls of the thing. Just wait and see, I know the One will be great, but it is not going to happen over night.

When you pay £400+ on something you expect it to be in at least worth it now not in a few years time if it's going to take a few years to fix it to where the customers will be happy then don't release it until it's properly ready honestly Microsoft you *** up BIG. Honestly I can't wait to get rid of my xbox one and I got it yesterday now that's saying something

All issues addressed by the OP are valid concerns that should not be ignored. I too am an xbox veteran.

On the original xbox I could hear up to 16 players in a Halo match. On the Xbox One I'm lucky to hear more than one. Party chat is atrocious and seldom works. Do yourself a favor and just drop it all together. In-game chat is all we need. That way I can talk smack to the opposing team and anyone who doesn't perform up to my standards. I'm often welcomed by "we can't turn on party chat now, please try again later". This wouldn't be an issue to me, if I could actually consistently hear my team in-game. But even with the killer must have app (Titanfall) this is absent.

Combine that with the fact that the UI is horrific, and you have a system set up for failure. The dashboard looks like somebody took a dumb on a tiled floor, and then smeared it around in a random order to make it as overwhelming and confusing as possible.

Ease and simplicity are the key, and the Xbox One is neither. The dashboard is slow and sluggish. Want to get to your friends? Be prepared to wait over a minute while several menus load. Gone are the days of simply pressing that X button on your controller to pull it up with ease. Want to access your messages? Good news! There is an app made exclusively for that. Be prepared to see an envelope with a black background appear on your screen for 5 to 10 seconds, only to reveal text only messages. But wait, it gets even better. Simply highlighting the message isn't enough to pull up the limited 160 character cap. You must click it so it can continue to load.

And why can't I set my custom gamer tag picture of myself in my badass Halo armor I made? The kinect already bogs down the processor and is the reason games have been released in a lower resolution thus far. I should at least be able to take a picture of myself like I did on the 360.

In conclusion the system is a joke. Xbox live has now become the PSN. It's a headache to navigate, and the online services are an embarrassment to any loyal xbox fan. I've gone to great lengths to voice my growing concern about the future of Xbox. If you're a true fan, the below video will hit home for you.
