The integration of all of these services is impressive. It looks like it performs well, so I hope the end user experience is just as fluid. I especially like how the app can sync with the guide.

Its one of those apps that may not be an epic feature, but it offers several little thing that just makes things easier. Simple things like taking a photo on your phone and then being able to see it on your tv via this app without involving any cords.

Awesome! Shame about not being able to access the music though.

That is true, but then they have the xbox music app to do that.

If want console the that console that does better graphics I would just a get PC.   PC are so far ahead right now it make PS4 and Xbox one feel vastly inferior.

Um, you don't have to use any of these apps.

You can just buy the console for games.

Extra features don't mean other features go away.

If I wanted a console that only played games instead of games and so much more, then I would get either an original Xbox, PS2, or PS4.

The Skydrive app is one of the few Metro apps that I regularly use on my HTPC.  It's great to be able to view pictures taken on my Lumia on my TV without having to do anything other than open the app.

 

It's a great idea to include this in the Xbox.

Microsoft is clicking on all cylinders right now...  The reveal, E3 (which I loved both personally) are both in the rear view mirror and fading quickly...

 

Next gen is going to be awesome...  Microsoft, is making it very very hard to turn down the One...

 

And it's starting to show that the $500 price tag goes beyond Kinect being in every box...  And this is stuff it can do out the box on day 1...

 

Yes it's about the games... But I know, I do a TON of other things with my 360, once I leave Dishonored, or NBA 2K... etc...

 

Microsoft, the "I'm just gonna shut up and show you" thing is working for you right now.  Don't say another word... just continue to be quiet and show the goods. All you are allowed to do is show how it works... no PR talk..

 

Just, things like this are good... that is all...

Skydrive is behind the Gold paywall, so the $100 difference doesn't pay for apps like it.

I corrected it... :D

 

 I' also have 5-6yrs of Xbox Live Gold passes sitting at home (kinda hard to turn them down when you find them at $35-$40 range

I suppose you could argue that the $100 nets you a more robust OS that allows for apps like the Skydrive app to be more useful than otherwise possible.

 

The X1 is running Win 8.1 under the hood after all.

I think they should be paying me the $100 to go through that torture then :p

 

 

*You couldn't pay me enough to use (vanilla) Win8/8.1

Where does it cost 100 bucks for XBL?

 

Amazon regularly has it in "Gold Box" for about 35 a year... right now its listed at 54 but if you order an xbox / x1 you get 20 bucks off too.

 

I'm guessing 100.00 difference in ps4 vs 1?  odd way of putting it.. lol i don't think skydrive was ever the price differentiator.

Yes, well that's nice.

 

Back to the point.  The X1 is using a general purpose OS, something much more robust than say the Xbox OS that is used only for the gaming features. 

 

There is value to that, but MS has to demonstrate that.  Its not going to be a single epic feature but more about a series of small things.

Nowhere? And nobody said it does either?

 

Showan was trying to say the $100 difference closed the gap because he got apps like Skydrive, which isn't true. $100 extra for the console and then more for Gold to use it.
