Pros and Cons
Reviewed in the United States on December 6, 2016
Okay. Let's get the bad out of the way. The console is actually a light grey color. It looks dark in pics but in reality, it's much lighter. Still looks better in my entertainment center than the other options but still a little disappointing.
Second, it only comes with a 500gb HDD (of which only about 375gb is allowed for personal use). It's not a dealbreaker since the Xbox One it replaced also had a 500gb HDD. In this day and age, that's totally unacceptable. Anyway, I just took the 2tb HDD off of that one and popped it onto the new one. Everything transferred over without a hitch.
Now, for the Pros. This console runs everything a little better. My old games look sharper on my 4K HDR set. Menus, etc, run a tad smoother. A little faster. Games seem to download faster. The controller feels a bit better, and it was already great.
There was a download code for Battlefield 1 which, if that's your cup of tea, a phenomenal game. Also, there is a free month of EA Access so you can download maybe 30 or so games and play until your heart is content.
Now, if only the box it came in didn't look like somebody played soccer with it.
