An online subscription is why XBL is easy-to-use, stable, and fast. PS3 online was a huge joke, and while it looked like PS4 online was headed in the right direction it is still a slow, unstable, complicated mess.
The money goes back into the infrastructure and is what keeps the experience so great.
I hope you’re a PC gamer, because if not I think you might be more of a cheapass than gamer...

My only complaint is the lack of DLC, you can't buy songs. Instead you rent them for fake money, but if you run out of fake money you have to play a bunch of random OR on disc songs to get more fake money.
Or buy fake money if you're a true psychopath.

Does anyone have recommendations on a top quality HDD for the Xbox One? I was under the assumption the Scorpio was coming out in the next few months but that's 2017 apparently. I'm in need of a new HDD as my current Xbox is filled with stuff and I can't keep deleting and reinstalling stuff anymore with the backlog I have accumulated and with what I need to keep on it. I was thinking of just getting an S in the meantime but I see I just missed the trade-in console deals Gamestop had for it so I'd rather just get a bigger HDD at this point unless anyone here knows of a place that will be offering another trade-in deal involving the S that will happen within the next month or two.
I don't think I'll need 1TB but just gonna say I'll go for that size anyway just in case. I'm not in desperate need of the space at the moment so if you think there's a chance a retailer will bring back another "trade in your One for an S" within the next couple months like I said I can wait for one of those and get a new console with a bigger HDD at the same time. If not not concerned about getting something cheap, just want something solid and dependable that will work great with the One.
I would agree with the above poster's recommendation, but I would also point out that I think the better route is to get the least expensive Xbone (500?) and then get an external (or just use the external you have already purchased). Buying a console with a larger harddrive is just wasted money IMHO. The resale value doesn't dramatically change, and if it breaks (or when you get the Scorpio) then your money is gone.
Getting an external harddrive means just that - you have an external harddrive. You can bring it with you, or completely re purpose it for something else. Comparing the cost ($100 more for 1.5TB vs $115 more for 4TB that you can use for other applications) is a no brainer.

i assume when you say the sales are close you are talking about month to month? or North American sales?. Sony has 70% of the european market. The numbers have never been as bad as they spin them, microsoft doesnt compete in europe and japan so all sales for sony in those regions skew the total numbers.
Sorry, yes. I live in NA so NA is all that's relevant to me.

That aside: these 1.5 consoles really fucking chap my hide. Neither of the current systems should even exist- it was an artificial generation jump- now now that they're coming out with ACTUAL next-gen systems everyone gets the shaft. Balls.
