Why you should buy an Xbox One for 2016Ashley Esqueda and the staff at GameSpot join together to help us list 4 reasons that will make picking up an Xbox One the right move this holiday season.
[MUSIC] Microsoft Xbox One has only been out for a couple of years but people are using it for amazing things. It's not just a console, it's also a great multimedia entertainment system. And if you've been thinking about picking up an Xbox One but aren't quite sure I've got four reasons why an Xbox one should be your console for this holiday season. Number four, the new Xbox one experience. Microsoft just brought a huge update to the Xbox one that includes a new community section, an update one guide, if you're interested in a one stop shot for your games, tv, movies, and more. It's a much faster experience that makes getting your content easier which is always a good thing. Thing. And speaking of good things, the new Xbox One experience, also brought one massive upgrade in particular, number 3, Backwards Compatibility. One of the coolest analysis made at E3 this year, was the fact that you can pop in your old 360 games, and they will download and play on your Xbox One. It's not every single game, but as of press time there are over 100 of them including classics like Burnout: Paradise. And that list is only gonna grow over time as publishers are able to give the go ahead for their games. Here's the hope that Red Dead Redemption gets the nod soon Soon, come on Rockstar we know you can do it. Number two, customizable controller inputs. Tagging along with the Xbox elite controller, which honestly is so amazing, is an app for the Xbox one that allows you to remap controller commands. It's a really nice gesture that let's users customize their experience and Microsoft added this functionality every official controller now. Look for it built into the new update in the settings menu or the Xbox accessories app if you already have that. No longer will you actually throw a sticky grenade up and onto your helmet in HALO five when you meant to reload because you're used to the way a different game does it. You're in control and I'll never do that again. And the number 1 reason why the Xbox One is the console for you is the great games that you can only find on Xbox. The Xbox has some real powerhouse franchise exclusives that will make the decision to get down with Microsoft a good one. You got Halo 5. You got all future Gears of War games, all the Forzas, State of Decay, the upcoming Scalebound and Crackdown. And at least until the end of 2016, Rise of the Tomb Raider. Ugh, so good! Picking up an Xbox One is a solid choice this holiday season and beyond. Microsoft is under a lot of pressure to make sure that the Xbox One experience is the best it can possibly be, for all kinds of gamers. And with access to your 360 library, customizable inputs, and a whole bunch of exclusive amazing franchises on the XBox, it's gonna be a really exciting year for Microsoft. [MUSIC]
