    Not impressed

    They really need to provide a printed user's manual. As a long time 360 owner, I found the new interface frustrating and confusing. Even after a month, I'm still managing to accidentally launch a game when I'm just trying to move to the next menu screen. You'd expect a new generation gaming console to blow your socks off with improvements. With the exception of Forza 6, most game don't look significantly better than on the 360. The monthly free games look the same, probably because they are a straight port from the original. I haven't noticed the new controller performing better. Although, I do like the overall hand feel and the rubber diamond grips on the back. If you want to control your TV viewing and other electronics, you should get the Kinect. You can purchase an IR extender to stick on your remote sensors instead if you don't mind wires running from your Xbox to your TV and etc. With the soon addition of being finally able to run many of your 360 games on your XboxOne this becomes a good choice when your 360 dies. However, if you 360 is still working fine, you might want to consider doing something better with your $400. The XboxOne is not leaps and bounds better.

    Still not quite ready for prime time

    Sadly, after over a year since its release, the XBOX One still feels like a just released product. Many of the features don't quite work cleanly, and obvious bugs like very slow download speeds make it hard to use. The new approach of having big downloaded files vs. data on DVDs eats up the ~700 GB of the 1 TB drive quite quickly. Don't plan on keeping all of your games ready to play at all times. Many of the games don't take advantage of the new graphics capabilities of the XBOX One, and generally feel like a big step back, although some try to capitalize on the "retro" theme. There are some anticipated games on the way this holiday season, but a lot of what was advertised at E3 is still years away from release! The Forza game is decent, and while the themed console and remote are nice, the fact that it only comes with one is rather disappointing. There's no way to get a second matching controller.

    Current Gen Xbox is the best so far

    I haven't had the Xbox One for very long, but so far it's been a very pleasant experience. Setup was a breeze and the interface is extremely fast and responsive. This Forza edition has a couple odd features that I didn't know about. If you power on by pressing the button on the console itself, an engine revving sound plays from within the xbox. Pressing other buttons on the machine causes it to emit other sounds as well. The blue-gray color of the console is a nice change from the usual plain black or white that we're usually stuck with. The packed in controller matches the console. This edition comes with a 1TB internal drive, so you'll have plenty of room for downloading games. There's a download code for Forza 6 included to get you started.

    Maximum Flexibility now with Windows 10 update

    1st console box purchase. have owned for 1 month now. my wife and I love it. have not played any games yet (ok, I did crash my car in Forza 6 a couple of times. impressive game). signed up for Hulu and Showtime. blue-ray player works great. update to Windows 10 was painless, quick, and no issues. new interface is more intuitive and has a lot of new features but lets you discover them as needed i.e. tutorials, dashboards, settings, etc. for example I needed to change my Closed Captioning setting and in Windows 10 all the settings are logically grouped and easier to find than before.

    Get back into gaming with this Limited Edition

    I have been out of gaming for a while. I sold my 360 about 4 years ago and was looking to jump back in. This Forza 1TB dition is pretty awesome. First, it's a 1TB, not the 500GB so that is a good value at this price point. Forza 6 is a great game. I haven't played a racing game in a long tie and the game does a good job of setting an appropriate learning curve. The download however, did take about 8-10 hours for me, so that is something to be aware of. The console color is a kind of satin muted blue. It looks way better than an all black console. The controller is also well done and it has a somewhat grippy texture behind the handholds that is a nice touch.

    We purchased this as a gift for our son, he has been yearning to play Forza since he discovered it a year ago. This replaces our aging PS3, which as you know, does not offer Forza. It's cool since it sounds like a car starting or shutting off when you power the Xbox on or off. The blue color is different, not just the usual black box under the tv. This controller is very comfortable to use, the black textured grip prevents drops. The silver tone buttons look great. Needless to say, my husband has also decided this is a great toy for him and has downloaded games and set up Netflix and Amazon Prime for movies. This unit gets almost as much use as the tv. Great purchase.

    Ultimate Multimedia Interface

    My wife regrets buying this for me because of how much fun I have playing it rather than giving her enough attention. I've owned the original and 360 and this ONE is far superior to its predescors especially since I like media content more than games. Once again a we've seen anoth major improvement with graphics but now the console has become the ultimate media interface. I'm able to watch TV and play games at the same time. All you have to do is plug your tuner box in the second HDMI slot. You can also rent and buy movies through Microsoft content. My only gripe is not being able to do Netflix and Games at the same time. Surf the web check email etc.

    I have an XBOX 360 and purchased an XBOX One because I read they would soon be able to use the device as a DVR. That capability is not there yet. The gaming works very good, though it does take a bit of getting used to the new interface. It is designed to be an entertainment portal, though it does not synch with my TV, Sound System, or DirecTV. I still need to use my other device remotes to turn systems on and off and change channels. I did purchase the TV tuner and antenna and they interface well with the XBOX One. The remote I purchased, Smart Glass, and the wireless controller all work with that set up.

    I was waiting to get an XBOX ONE with a forza bundle and glad i did since they added the matte blue instead of plain black. When you START the Xbox a race car engine starts up and turning off another car sound. Ejecting Disc sound has a compressor wrench.. These features just make the xbox pretty cool and for any Forza Fan this is a MUST HAVE!!! And of course Forza 6 - ONLY download unfortunately so NO disc as i was expecting one but either way still great edition!

    Same Console, New Color.

    If you currently have an Xbox One you would know what to expect with this. The console color is simple and matches the cover car for Forza 6, it has a couple engine noises when you power on and off, as well as the tray eject. Not too much into the sounds myself, mostly the color, but I typically turn on the console with my controller so you will not hear them if you don't care for the tones.

    Forza is good, console lacking...

    Good: Pack in game Quick boot mode finally makes me able to play games quicker as I don't have to boot up, watch the adverts at the front of the game. Instead turn it on kept playing right where you left off Bad: Freezes. It will get stuck at load screens. A reboot fixes it. Happened twice in last two months. The online store is horrible. No sorting, no good way to browse. Seriously x360 is 100x better in the interface and navigation. Everything you want to do with it requires an install of some external app. There aren't many games on it that aren't repeats of x360 land.

    This Xbox is absolutely gorgeous. The Forza themed console and controller look stunning. The cosmetic appearance, included game, and 100% extra hard drive space compared to the original console.. is a step in the right direction. Xbox has a very legit lineup coming with Halo 5, Gears of War 4, and Tomb Raider. Also for those that argue the PS4 has better graphics.. you might want to research direct x 12 that's coming to the console very soon. 9.5/10

    I wasn't sure which Xbox one bundle I wanted to go with and I was hesitant to get this one at first. I didn't know if I was going to like the shade of blue (I would have preferred a darker color with maybe white stripes), but it still looks pretty great in person. I am not the biggest fan of the sound effects it makes, but I almost always turn on the console with my controller so it doesn't bother that much. The controller is nice and the grip is noticeable, but not in a way that makes or breaks the feel of it. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.

    I picked this up because of Halo 5. I have been very impressed with the graphics and the style of the Xbox with Forza. The game was a digital download which means no disc required and you can change from game to game with ease. The 1TB hard drive means you can go all digital and be ok on space. Upgradable memory via the USB port which is nice for the person who plans to have the system for a long time. There are some bugs with the system that are easily overcomed but a little annoying. Very fun system. Can do a lot with it.

    I had been on the fence about buying into any new consoles but after making this purchase I have no regrets. Many aren't aware of the games for gold program that is offered for xbox live gold members which gives gamers 2 free games a month and now that xbox one is gaining backward compatibility, you can get 2 xb360 games a month too. So you get 4 free games a month as a gold member. Only rough part about the console is learning to navigate the new menus. It takes a bit to learn as it is VERY different from the XB360.

    I was personally waiting on the Halo 5 system and now that I see it I like this one much better. It is blue and awesome IMO nothing much to say other than that. As far as forza goes I am personally going to sell it along with the 10th anniversary car pack you get with console to recoup some of my money I spent on this system. Not into racing games other than at an actual arcade. I always buy the special edition consoles as they tend to look a little nicer and retain a little more value when the next systems come out.

    The custom color console and controller are a cool way to change things up. Another couple of neat features are the special startup and shutdown sounds the console has when using the front touch panel to power up and down the system. On power up it has a nice starter wind up and engine rev what's sounds to be of a Ferrari or other high end sports car. On the power down it makes more of a down shift idle down. The controllers custom grips feel nice as well. All in all a great system with great storage and features

    Why buy a plain black one

    I waited to upgrade to the Xbox one for several reasons. Now that the time was right I could not see the point of just having boring black version. As a car guy love the color and sounds. The game is great. Though I wish the included games where not digital downloads. Nothing like getting a new toy and not getting to use it till the next day. But really I think thiscontroller is the best part. Love the rubber backing and colors

    The forza 6 Xbox one bundle is a great purchase if your looking to get a Xbox one and want Forza 6 for a reasonable packaged price but more importantly the color and design of the Xbox one is what sold me and it looks a lot better in person. The controller grips and triggers feel soo much better than the standard controller but not sure how it will match up with the elite controller. All in all a great purchase you will not be disappointed.
