Slowly but surely, the emphasis changed. The 360 kept getting more and better games, but it also got Netflix, and Hulu Plus, and HBO Go. In 2008, Microsoft even overhauled the Xbox interface — turning it from the old side-scrolling "blades" interface into something that looked more like the Zune and Windows Media Center, and more recently into something that looks a lot like Windows 8. Media apps became more popular on the 360 than multiplayer gaming, and Microsoft began talking about how “Xbox” didn’t just mean games anymore.

In other words...

You'll still want a Sega Dreamcast 2.

I'm kind of torn. If i buy a console it will be this one even with the premium. The reasons i could buy a console are:
DVR
Cable through Xbox
Kinect commands for my tv

Reasons for xbox:
Prefer the controller
Halo

You're right about that controller. The PS4's controller feels so unnatural and uncomfortable compared to the Xbox One's.
I had the privilege to try out both a few months ago and the One definitely wins.

But I'm sure Mad Catz will release some sort of Xbox style controller for the PS4 like they did with the PS3.

I never really liked off brand controllers. They just felt worse.

I love my 360, I really do... but i cannot support the xbox ecosystem any longer.

NSA issues aside, my biggest gripe is how they bogged down the OS with crappy screen filling ads and crappy little video ads. On some days, the transition times between menus would be so slow it makes launch day Wii U look fast and snappy.

It might not be there now, but it will be... And it'll probably be far far worse than what is going on on the 360...

I haven't owned an xbox since before the UI overhaul so i'm kind of curious about any articles you can find regarding this.

First time hearing this, people are either neutral or praising the PS4 controller.

There, fixed that for you.

While I'm no longer a fanboy to any camp, I still can't seem to get passed them charging me for Xbox Live to use Netflix. It's crazy that I'm still to this day, more up in arms about that than the Kinect spying, or the DRM gaming or anything else.

You can't say that a console has a feature out of the box, but you have to pay more to use it. Netflix, Youtube, IE, Skype, heck even the built in game DVR. How are those features if you have to pay more to use them?

I get the multiplayer thing, because those are features of the software. But c'mon Microsoft. Built in features costing extra?
