What really needs to be said?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox One Console - Titanfall + Kinect (Video Game)
It arrived on Titanfall's launch. It has a $500 console(Which runs you about $530+ if you buy in a store), comes with a $60 game($65 if you buy in a store), and ships it to you for $499, with no tax, in two days.
Edit: After having the console for a few days, I'd figure I'd update. First off, Titanfall is the most fun I've had in a FPS since maybe Halo 3. Love that it's an exclusive. Microsoft is packing a punch the old fashioned way, having games that only IT'S hardware has.(Like Nintendo and Sega in the 90's) It took me a longggggggg time to download it, but I have 2 mbps internet, so that's on me.
As for the console, except for a few little gripes, it's exceeded my expectations in all ways. It runs quiet, looks very sleek and glossy, and the Kinect is a very nice piece of technology. Not only is the video chat quality pretty good for when you're skyping, but it does stuff I didn't even know it could, like sign you into your gamertag when you walk into the room(Awesome)
I didn't really use the Kinect on 360, but it's a lot more of a viable product now. Voice command this time is not only more accurate, but it's more practical since this system was designed with Kinect in mind. Being able to just say "Xbox, go to Titanfall" at any moment(Since it's a digital copy) to go to your game is awesome. It's very much like using a Windows 8 computer, while you're switching between apps/desktop browser/etc. And it's dope how you can do something like watch Netflix or use Internet Explorer, while your game is loading or matchmaking, and you can go back to your game like you never left it after a few minutes.
Very happy with the One.

It's a decent value but not everywhere has no tax. California for example will apply sales tax to Amazon orders.

Really? I have friends in CA and when I send them stuff off their wish list, I don't have to pay tax... Is that because I am not in CA?

Well I live in Chicago, that's a pretty important city. No tax.
So I guess the moral of the story is... sucks to be you. LOL
But even with the tax, you're still getting a 65$ game for free.
I haven't stopped playing my Xbox since I got it.

Since Titanfall's launch, I'm seriously considering buying the xbone. Good marketing on M$ behalf..

But it really comes out to $559 if you consider Xbox Live costs $60 for one year and is required to play Titanfall, as its an online multiplayer-only game.
Also, Titanfall isn't exclusive, strictly speaking. Its available on PC and will be out on the 360 as well.
So, Microsoft platform exclusive.
