Long-term test: Microsoft Xbox One review

 

Its most ambitious features still aren't perfect, but the updated Xbox One is now a great console

Solid line-up of games ; Kinect-less console is cheaper and more powerful ; Occasionally useful multi-tasking and picture-in-picture

Flagship features still have flaws ; A big, inelegant box

There are still niggles, but the newly Kinect-less Xbox One is a better, more focused games machine

Microsoft Xbox One: Will gamers want it?

 

Microsoft wants the Xbox One to be central to your living room and packed the new Xbox with such features as the ability to change TV channels through voice commands.

Microsoft Xbox One

 

A worthy successor to the Xbox 360, and competitor in the modern console cold-war?

Beautiful graphics, great gameplay experience ; Subtly redesigned, extraordinarily comfortable controller ; Blu-ray disc playback ; HDMI input for pass-through from Freeview/Sky decoder ; Full web browser, YouTube support, Skype calling and other apps

Menu system is an awkward mix of 360 and Windows 8 ; Space-hungry, will not stand up on its end in ‘tower style ; Not compatible with Xbox 360 headsets ; Some features currently missing for NZ users (voice commands, EPG)

A suitable replacement for the Xbox 360, and one possible way to tie all your home entertainment together. The interface needs some work, though, and a future ‘slimmed down’ version would be very welcome.

Xbox One review: With the Xbox One S available now and Project Scorpio and Sony's PS4 Neo on the horizon, how well does the original Xbox One stack up in the current climate? Stuart Andrews takes another look at the original hardware, and finds that it...

Great exclusive titles ; Superb controller ; Improved software and apps ecosystem ; More strong games on the horizon

Struggling to match the PS4 on raw performance ; Big and bulky ; Superceded by the Xbox One S with Xbox One X on the way

Times are difficult for the old Xbox One. It’s facing even stiffer competition and has been superceded by a smaller, more desirable 4K-friendly update. Yet if you’ve got one or you can get one on the cheap, it’s still a very desirable games machine,...

Xbox One review: a fast and powerful work in progress

 

Your new running shoes have WiFi, but there are still -- still! -- no flying cars. We've got mini-supercomputers in our pockets, but where's the kitchen

Great battery life ; The best analog sticks on any gamepad ; Rumble triggers

Shoulder buttons are cumbersome ; Requires AA batteries

The Xbox One's controller is mostly a refined version of the last-gen gamepad, with the new shoulder buttons being the only real step backward.

Microsoft Xbox One review

 

More powerful hardware, a flexible multimedia operating system, and functional voice commands via Kinect combine to firmly establish Microsoft's Xbox One within the next-gen.

Powerful OS is user-friendly and built for seamless multitasking ; Kinect v2's well-implemented voice recognition is a new "button" for your controller ; Improved internal hardware translates to smooth game performance ; Cable box interconnectivity is...

Limited, occasionally non-intuitive voice commands ; Bulky, hefty form factor ; Snap same-screen multitasking is debatably useful

New 4K games look phenomenal ; Ultra HD Blu-ray player ; Dolby Atmos compatible ; Compact size and slim profile ; Enhances old games

Xbox One S review: smaller, better, whiter

 

The same slick gaming platform you're used to, however now with upgraded 4K Ultra HD hotness

4K Ultra HD playback ; Slicker and slimmer console

Only 1.6TB of 2TB HDD usable

Xbox One S review: Great console, bad timing

 

There's no way to talk about the Xbox One S without talking about the console it's replacing, the Xbox One. So I will just start by saying the really obvious thing: the Xbox One S is what the...

Looks great ; Smaller ; 4K and HDR support

No SSD option ; Might be better to wait for Project Scorpio

Microsoft Xbox One

 

The Xbox One, Microsoft's current-generation console, has seen a user interface upgrade and the addition of limited backward compatibility, and it's still at the top of its game.

New interface is intuitive and accessible. Powerful hardware. Incorporates live television with OneGuide, HDMI passthrough, and USB tuner supports. Limited Xbox 360 backward compatibility.

Kinect integration and voice commands have been de-emphasized to the point of almost being completely dropped. Current backward compatibility list is very small.

Conclusions If you want a pure game system, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are in a dead heat. As a media streamer , though, especially if you subscribe to cable or satellite service, the Xbox One is a better bet. The soft abandonment of Kinect...
