I got one essentially for university. I'm planning to mainly use it for iPlayer/Youtube, as I have done for my 360, and am a little disappointed that no headset has been released yet for the Xbone that doesn't require a constant wired connection to the controller: meaning that I'd constantly have to have my controller switched on when I am watching a movie, for instance. I don't expect to get a ton of usage out of it gaming wise, but I do expect to use it as a multimedia centre. I'd say, go for it if ~£400 isn't a lot for you, but if you could spend it elsewhere on something more important, stick with your 360.

If you have to ask, probably not. If you like to game often, you will game at uni. If you don't game much, you will probably game even less at uni.

Don't buy anything then, take your 360 and if you do have loads of times then just get a new console then?? Maybe it'll be cheaper and if you're still getting an xbox one then there might be a halo bundle? If you want it for netflix then why not just use your 360? Even tv's have netflix

I only played Xbox when it was the odd game of FIFA with mates etc. The rest of the time I spent doing things like gym, actual University work or generally going out.
Sure, if you was a very passionate "gamer" as such, you would make time I guess.
I recommend just taking your 360 for the first year, see how you get on, then decide
In all honesty I only play FIFA now

I was thinking about getting a PS4 or One today; but the line-up of games is appalling. I want to want one, but I just cannot justify it.
And might I just add that the One without a Kinect is an abysmal deal... it's £50 less in Sainsbury's, but it doesn't come with a game as the Kinect included version does. In other words it is the same price!

So basically I'm still using my 360, which I have had since 06/07 ish. Can't decide whether I should get an Xbox One or not.
Since the price difference is only £40 (if that) I won't be going for a PS4.
I'm off to Uni next year and at 18 the heights of my 'gaming days' are gone so I'm unsure as to whether it would be worth investing around £380 on a new console alone. Only one of my friends has an Xbox One and the rest still play 360. Though a lot of them are thinking about getting one but it looks like an 'if everyone else does too' kind of situation.
I've also been informed that the 'Party' feature has been removed? I'm not sure if this is true but that would surely remove the social aspect I've enjoyed for 4-5 years of Xbox Live with my friends.
Anyway, I suppose I'm just wondering whether the in game improvements such as graphics are worth while, I'm not interested about the voice-command features and any Kinect stuff.
Looking for answers mainly from those who play online, as the likes of FIFA, Halo and Cod etc will be what I will continue to play.
Thoughts on the benefits/drawbacks of getting an Xbox One please!
