Top 5 Reasons Why the Xbox One Sucks Ass

Posted by Drew White Tuesday, May 27, 2014
As an owner of the Xbox One since Christmas Day, I have really nothing positive to say about the console except for good graphics. Besides that, the Xbox One has sucked major ass since the release last fall. Here are some of the reasons why this console does not cut the cheese in more than one way.

5. The All-In-One Entertainment System That's Not So Entertaining

You know how one of the biggest selling points of the Xbox One was that you could connect your cable box and use the Kinect to control it?! Yeah, they screwed this one up. The idea of split-screening cable and your games was intriguing, but there were tons of issues with lag and Kinect voice commands not working (which will reappear in a bit). A waste of an innovative idea.

4. Bad Servers

I had to get a new router because apparently the one I had for the Xbox 360 was not good enough, and even now with my new one I still have issues accessing certain things because my Internet—which was never an issue before the Xbone—is now the problem. This is an issue I believe Microsoft will fix in time, but for now it's a nuisance.

3. The Kinect

Remember when Microsoft said that the Kinect would come with the Xbox One and that it had to be plugged into the console? The Kinect was a stinker on the 360, and it still is now on the One. The Kinect camera is still slow on reactions and sometimes still doesn't recognize me or my hands. Voice commands are terrible and often either won't be picked up or will not be what you actually said.

2. The Games

I know the Xbone has only been out for a few months now, but you would think when you are launching a new console that you would launch it with some premiere titles that would make people want to get the console. Most games that have come out for the Xbone also came out with the Xbox 360 or with Sony's respective consoles. I know over time games will come out, but by then I will have either switched to PC gaming or just not be playing video games anymore.

1. Nothing Groundbreaking

To me this will be what kills the Xbox One if it comes to it: There is nothing that is really innovative about the next-gen consoles. Hell, there was more innovation back when Microsoft was trying say DMR was the future last year when they announced the console. I have talked to numerous people about whether they were going to get the new consoles being released, and most told me they weren't because they weren't offering anything that made them want to get the new console. To me this was upsetting, because some of these people were the ones I wasted my teenage years playing video games with and now I won't be able to do that anymore. Which is part of the reason I don't like the new consoles—there is no one to play with.

So ladies and germs, is the Xbox One really as bad as I think it is, or am I just an annoying man on the Internet who can't see greatness even if it slaps me in the face? Share your opinions in the comments area below! With that, let's end this piece with a celebratory piece of meme.
