4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Deal, March 14, 2014
By 
This review is from: Xbox One Console - Titanfall + Kinect (Video Game)
The Xbox One is a pretty good system as it is so this is a pretty good deal. Just to make it clear, you get a controller, the standard $25 chat headset, the Kinect Sensor, the basic accessories, and Titanfall. Titanfall is similar to today's first person shooters except for that there are robots involved.

Comparison to Xbox 360:

Xbox one loads up much more quickly, and boots games very quickly.
The graphics are beautiful, but not a ridiculous amount better.
There is no more start menu. Instead you can freely navigate the main menu, even while in a game.
The system is sooo quiet
Kinect motion controls can be unresponsive and are not worth the effort
Kinect Voice Commands are pretty good and work most of the time.
Party chat has a different interface, but works in mostly the same way.

A major difference is that with a purchasable adapter, you can use any pair of headphones that you own to listen to game sound. It just plugs into your controller. If the headphones have a mic the you can also speak through them.

You cannot, unfortunately, talk cross platform. If am on the One and you are on the 360, we cannot talk through party chat or listen to each other's voice messages.

If you have any other question please feel free to contact me. I hope this helped.

Does the adapter really work well with headphones rather than connecting to the reciever? I cant decide. I have not bought the adapter yet.

cant connect to xbox 360 partychat is a deal breaker for me. msft will either have to kill 360 by shutting it down or One will die by a thousand cuts. or they come up with a solution to bridge the two.

I'd also add that the Xbox One has a blu ray player while the 360 was just a DVD drive.

I live a quiet apt and use wired turtle beaches which are awesome and give realistic sound, does the headphone port on the controller support surround sound for realistic gaming? If not, does the system have an optical out like the 360 did?

I am assuming that Skype will work just fine, but that will not work for Xbox360 users because multitasking in that way is likely not available.

How is that a dealbreaker? One person has current gen and one person has last gen. They don't need to bridge them.
