I know pretty much nothing about consoles and stayed away because I couldn't get the hang of the controllers. Give me a mouse and kb for FPS, or steering wheel and peddles any day !
So I'm looking for some advice. Do I stick with a 360 or go for a One ? The 360 has lots of games, is cheap but is old tech and the graphics aren't great. The One is new, but relatively expensive in comparison to a 360 and probably has features I wont use. I've seen some youtube videos of what the One is capable of, but whilst Skype on the TV would be nice, I already have an HTPC which handles all LAN video and audio, we never watch NZ tv and my Samsung tv handles Netflix, BBC iplayer etc.
Could the One be considered a proper HTPC replacement playing all our bluray's and video over the LAN ?
I've also noticed us moving more and more to M$ in the last 12 months. I love W8, my wife has a SurfaceRT and absolutely loves it, my kids have Chromebooks from school and although my work life revolves around Gmail, Google Drive and Docs etc I'm thinking of getting a Surface Pro and moving to Office, Skydrive etc. We also use Spotify but Xbox music is starting to appeal on the basis I think it allows for four devices and not three.
I'd appreciate any thoughts and if someone has one for sale ;)
