Just be aware that you will likely face https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinavia if you try to watch .mkv movie files.

Think i'll wait 1.5 months for the xbox one S for $648 instead of wasting $1199 to Panasonics ego.

The XBOX S may be a good option for many, but for those with dedicated home theatres, or with audio equipment they don't feel like rushing out to replace, the lack of a second HDMI output will pose a bit of a problem.

Ha, knew the first player wouldn't be under a grand.  Typical NZ dealers.  Giving us the middle finger.
