What customers say about "Key Specs"
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • This console runs everything a little better. My old games look sharper on my 4K HDR set.
  • Well worth upgrading from Xbox 360, this thing does absolutely everything and the picture and sound is flawless. It's a totally different gaming experience than with the 360.
  • The graphics and visuals are noticeably better, the colors are sharper and everything is way more clear. Watching Game of Thrones via this bad boy was spectacular.
  • Works well, runs cool, love the internal power supply, is a small console, plays DVD/Blu-Ray/UHD discs to my 4k, plays my games, what's not to love.
  • The only frustrating things was the included game in that it is only valid on the Xbox One and I do not get it on the Windows 10 PC store.
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB Console
  • The PS4 has perfection graphics . Just bought this for my son and he loves it over his Xbox . Great gift !!!
  • The graphics for the console are amazing. I really believe that Sony has outdone themselves with this one.
  • I bought this for my nephew as a graduation present. The graphics are outstanding and he loves his PS4.
  • Sony PlayStation 4's graphics are so good that playing the games seems like you're starring in and directing your own movie.
  • I got this because of the size and the new blu ray , i use this to watch all my movies and i love it

What customers say about "Storage"
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • The memory of the console is plenty for me but I can see how it will fill up fast as you download digital copies.
  • One of my worries was that the hard drive is only 500GB, but buying and using an external hard drive will not only be cheaper than buying the 1 TB console, but playing games that are downloaded onto the external hard drive actually makes them load FASTER!
  • With hdmi you can connect it to any lcd tv.
  • It only comes with a 500gb HDD (of which only about 375gb is allowed for personal use).
  • The 360 died so I made the Jump to the "ONE". First let me say I wish this was a 2 tera instead of 500 gigs I only could get 5 "1" games and 6 "360" games on it Second definetly better graphics and the way everything's approached.
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB Console
  • With a lot of new games using online downloading system, the extra hard drive space helps a lot.
  • Nice size and plenty of hard drive space, great deal for the price. I haden't purchased a new console since the Wii having been mostly PC at this point, but a few of the playstation exclusives sold me on getting on and I'm very happy with it.
  • It has a 1TB hard drive, so you can store plenty of gaming files.
  • PS4 is a great choice for gaming system. The 1TB hard drive is more than enough space for downloads.
  • It's nice to have a big hard drive to store all the games and movies and songs

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • I Noticed decreased load times and it looks quite a bit better through the included cable plugged into the 60 Hz port in comparison to the Xbone with either its HDMI cable, or the One S cable in the same port!
  • Connections are quite easy, even comes with a HDMI cable I believe.
  • The content inside the box was: Xbox One S, Controller, HDMI and Power cable
  • Great console, great game. Just wish it had a port for the Kinect sensor. You'll need an adapter otherwise.
  • The only thing I was disappointed in was it does not have the ability to connect Kinetic. We don't play Kinetic games very often but it would have been great to still be able to plug my old kinetic from my Xbox One DAY ONE machine.
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB Console
  • Connects easily to internet. Enjoy the games with multi players
  • PS4 rocks. I own three of them and setup vpn connections with friends.
  • Easy to connect , my brother was very happy with his new game system
  • Happy but would be much more pleased with bluetooth connectivity for wireless displays
  • Can’t beat the system, they added a USB port to the back of the unit it’s handy

What customers say about "Features"
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • Menus, etc, run a tad smoother. A little faster. Games seem to download faster. The controller feels a bit better, and it was already great.
  • The controller is great and reacts well and feels great in the hands.
  • There was a download code for Battlefield 1 which, if that's your cup of tea, a phenomenal game. Also, there is a free month of EA Access so you can download maybe 30 or so games and play until your heart is content.
  • Fluidity and contrast ratio with Ultra HD TVS including the UDH feature are brilliant! The Battlefield One game code works great, and it is an amazing visually interactive experience if you're into gaming. I'm using it more as a media center for my high resolution movies.
  • The only problem I have with the package is the battery consumption of the controller. I highly recommend you purchase the rechargeable battery pack with this bundle to save the trips to the store for AA batteries.
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB Console
  • Love the slim design + better controller + 1TB drive.
  • Its a great system to have it offers a lot of options to choose from
  • I have yet to play any games on this console but it is an exceptional streaming device although I think the interface is kinda clunky. I can't wait to try games on this.
  • This is a perfect system to use to monitor child play. Also can see what they access during their play.
  • Love the features that comes with it. Enjoy watching movies on it as well
