I have had the benefit of owning the Xbox One and the PS4 due to enjoying gaming, and not for being a fanboy of either Microsoft or Sony. That being said I have really enjoyed the Xbox One. I did wait to buy the Xbox when is shipped without the Kinect and was a ******* dollars less. I was initially hesitant in purchasing without the Kinect thinking I would be missing out of the experience, but up to this point I have never regretted it. If you are doing your research you'll probably hear a lot of arguments about which one has better spec and which one outputs 1080p vs 720p. I haven't noticed any difference in that sense. But having experienced both I do feel that the Xbox One's interface is better. It feels more fluid.
