    also - XBL no longer needed to entertainment apps eg Netflix etc. games for gold gets an extra free game (3) on xbox 360 - not rented whilst you pay your subs ala PS3/4 but keep for ever - XB1 gtes 2 games per month and different titles - if you have both consoles you potentially get 5 free games per month

    I won't want or buy one one until the next Halo launch, then after I've rediscovered what a massive disappointment it is (because 343i) I'll regret it and want to sell it, but probably end up not selling it because I have some vague hope that I'll grow to like it.

    Le sigh.

    Kinect wasn't particularly successful on 360 so why did they pursue it?

    I WOULD be tempted (as Uni said - Halo), if it were actually available here.
    So far, on this side of the planet, PS4's are quite readily available, with all of 6 games.

    I have not seen a single XBox One, or a single game anywhere in Namibia

    Still waiting for Halo there will be some deal when it's launched that will undercut this and then I'll likely sell it.

    Kick in the teeth for all those that brought it on launch not even 6 months later and its £100 less. See if it boosts sales i guess as titanfall did very little. They need Halo to launch as its one of there true system sellers. Just like uncharted is for playstation.

    I paid £309 for mine and it included Kinect. Overall, i'm very happy with my purchase, under welmed by the number of titles available right now, but, like the 360, that will grow. We'll need to wait for E3 to see more, but leaks have shown what MS (And Sony) could well be highlighting next month.

    You're both right - I got the currency signs round the wrong way.
    I should have said £349 = $586

    As mentioned for the Xbox One though certain entertainment apps are coming out of the paywall but others are going into it. For instance Xbox One users will have to keep their XBL to have access to their games for gold, so they too have gone the rental route.

    This is by no means a bad thing, I'm quite happy renting fairly new games that get a free game I played 2-3 years ago.
