Xbox One Console - Day One Edition

An overall impressive machine with lots of potential.

ajones13

Pros: Voice feedback, when working, has a truly futuristic feel. Good game selection. Snap applications. Well designed controller. Xbox Live. Kinect

Cons: Voice feedback sometimes requires multiple attempts. No DLNA full support. No 3d blu ray playback. Gesture controls

When the Xbox One was first announced, there seemed to be an overwhelming negative response. The announcement seemed to focus entirely on the One's ability to be a media player and incorporate live tv functionality, and didn't spend much time talking about games. In addition, the console was forced to have an internet connection every 24 hours for DRM checks, as well as a requirement that all...

PlayStation 4 Console

Pros: Perfect controller, more powerful specs than Xbox One, higher resolution multiplatform games, only $399, compact form factor, runs quiet

Cons: Lacks some functionality that even the PS3 has, not much of a game library yet

Xbox 360 4GB Console

Xbox 360 4GB Console

“What can be said about the Xbox 360 that hasn't been said already. It is a nice game system I used to upgrade from the Microsoft Xbox game console. The first Xbox 360 console I had cost $300.00 and it got the dreaded Red Ring of Death and I purchased a second Xbox 360 for about $150.00. I chose the Xbox 360 because of the console's backwards compatibility with some Xbox games that I own....” --PGTweed

NES System: Video Game Console

NES System: Video Game Console

“The Nintendo Entertainment System truly is one of the all-time classic home video game consoles. It is often overlooked nowadays, simply because technology has advanced so far since the NES's release in 1983. However, even for people who are accustomed to the most high-tech gaming machines of the present day, classic games such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Donkey Kong still...” --Rosin

Gamecube Console Platinum

Gamecube Console Platinum

“Nintendo's Gamecube video game console is unique for two reasons. 1. It is in the shape of a small cube that can be easily taken anywhere to be played. 2. The games are on mini discs. The Gamecube's graphics are not High Definition. The picture quality is very good. It has solid game play. I love using the Gamecube's controllers. They are easy to hold to get a firm grip when playing action...” --PGTweed

Sega Genesis 32X Console

“The Sega Genesis 32X was my fifth video game console. I purchased it from Video Trading company in Johnson City,TN. The Sega Genesis 32X graphics and sound are comparable to the Super Nintendo video game console. The game pad however is not as good as the NES and SNES controllers. Set up is easy and not hard to do. My favorite Sega Genesis 32X game: Star Wars Arcade 32X. The only reason to get...” --PGTweed

Atari 5200 - Video Game Console (System)

“My second video game console was the Atari 5200. The first was the Atari 2600 that was purchased before Christmas 1977. The Atari 5200 is a slight improvement in graphics and sound over the Atari 2600. The Atari 5200 is an early Atari 400(?) little computer without the floppy drive. It is easy to set up and connect to most any pre HD TV. The downpart of the Atari 5200, other than the size of...” --PGTweed

Atari 7800 System - Video Game Console

“The Atari 7800 was my third video game console. It has improved graphics compared to its predecessors the Atari 5200 and the Atari 2600. The Atari 7800 is backwards compatible to play Atari 2600 games without an add on adapter. The Atari 7800 graphics are comparable to the Nintendo NES game console. Game play is like the Nintendo NES. The Atari 7800 controllers are similar to the Atari 5200...” --PGTweed

Microsoft XBOX 360 E 4GB Console with Kinect Sensor

Microsoft XBOX 360 E 4GB Console with Kinect Sensor

“I use this Microsoft Xbox 360 E as a Media Center extender. It is by far the cheapest setup for recording and streaming TV content. You will need a PC running the Media Center software and at least one TV tuner video card. The setup is made quite simple by Microsoft by way of the interface on the PC and entering an 8-digit code that appears on the Xbox during Media Center setup. The...” --IgnoringMyWife

Nintendo Wii U - game console - 32 GB flash

“I somewhat recently purchased a Nintendo Wii U in September after the price drop. I really wanted to check the system out before then, but couldn't find a compelling reason to do so. Getting it for $300 with a pack in game made the decision much easier. Although I'm glad I paid less than I would have a year ago, I'm really sorry I didn't get this system before. While I don't yet own a PS4...” --zbornak78

PlayStation 3 320GB System

“Aside from being a gaming console, the Playstation 3 is quite a versatile home theater box. I've got an Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Roku LT, and while all are great, none of them quite do everything. The Xbox and PS3 are both great gaming consoles in their own rights, but the Xbox doesn't pack a Blu-ray player, and the PS3 leaves just a little to be desired from streaming options compared to...” --cdann08

PlayStation 4 Console

PlayStation 4 Console

“The Playstation 4...from its sharp, modern design to its smooth, gorgeous UI, the PS4 is pure joy from start to finish.   The first thing I noticed about the PS4 compared to other consoles is it's size. It's tiny...but in a good way, not in a "a medium-sized gust of wind would break this in a second" way. In all seriousness, I'm amazed at how Sony was able to pack so much gaming power in...” --ILoveBigOil
