Top critical review
I was definitely expecting more!
on 11 October 2014
Ok everybody compares Xbox One with PS4 and I've chose Xbox One with Kinect because I have a 7 years old child and I thought this would be better for the youngers.
What makes me unsatisfied is mostly kinect. It doesn't tracks as expected and the voice commands are a real pain to make it works properly. With all family inside the room It is harder to make it works, even if you play games without kinect it keeps failing recognising who is in the room and consequently signing in and off all users what messes up with the profiles and stop games. It crashes many times too and you have to restart the console to make apps works properly again.
I have tried different device positions with and without a stand for top of the TV and I've done all recommended configs and tweaks with audio and video on kinect with no improvement at all.
Another thing that bugs me is the necessity of paying Xbox Live just to be able to play a game that you already paid 40 pounds or so. I think this is abusive.
I think too that a USB cable should be part of the console kit since you need one to update the controllers firmware.
