What customers say about "Key Specs"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • The XBOX ONE is very fast and high quality gaming system. I have played PS4 until now and the XBOX quality is much better.
  • The Xbox One is awesome. Great games with stellar graphics and incomparable online community.
  • Graphics are way improved from the 360, to match the newer more advanced game's.
  • We use it to watch things like Netflix, HBO Now, and Blu Rays.
  • The graphics are much improved, but I don't really care for the layout of the menus.
  • Piece of crap is a paperweight since the mid year 2017 update. Extremely slow on startup. Won't load any games or apps. Can't even watch a stinking Blu-ray. Microsoft can kiss my a**. Not backward compatible for any of my good games.Gonna buy a PlayStation and be a happy gamer.
Sony PlayStation 4 Console Batman Arkham Knight Bundle Limited Edition
  • Fun to play with family and friends. Easy to set up and good color and graphics.
  • I got it as a preowned device so it was way cheaper, so far it has work perfectly, and the graphics
  • The best console from PlayStation that I have ever had, it is quiet, and the graphics are unbelievable. I recommend this console to anyone.
  • Looks great, even more so in person. If you're one of the lucky ones to get your hands on this before they sold out congrats. Game was excellent. Awesome graphics.
  • The graphics on this system is great! I'm not a big gamer but my other half has been on it since we got it!

What customers say about "Storage"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • Love the game and the extra storage space. Was worth the extra money for larger hard drive and game.
  • This was for a gift for someone else. They really enjoyed the new 1 TB expanded HD storage.
  • Nice to have the extra storage.
  • Very good Quality also very good deal for a 1 TB memory
  • Would have been nice if the console was division themed.
Sony PlayStation 4 Console Batman Arkham Knight Bundle Limited Edition
  • I replaced the batman HDD over with a clear one from Japan. Looks like these are sold out, too, so you better find one ASAP.
  • Though the difference in this version of the PS4 over the original is only cosmetic, you get the same guts (HDD and what not), it's still a sweet sweet looking system.
  • Despite the relatively small hard-drive (which I immediately upgraded to 2TB), this console was worth every penny and will be a great addition to my gaming collection.
  • The only downside is the price compared to a normal ps4 and the one memory option.
  • I would recommend getting a larger HDD. Stock 500gb is not enough.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • HDMI pass through. You can hook up an HDMI device to the back of an Xbox One to view the content from that device without changing inputs or leaving the X1 interface.
  • External USB 3.0 storage. This is great because you don't need to open the console and replace a hard disc to add storage, just plug in and the X1 will format the drive.
  • USB 3.0 is actually faster than the internal hard disc interface.
  • You will need an Internet connection to set this up
Sony PlayStation 4 Console Batman Arkham Knight Bundle Limited Edition
  • I had to purchase another Optical Audio cable to get sound as my receiver doesn't play audio through the HDMI cable.
  • With integrated streaming capabilities, even over wi-fi, and Sony's legendarily good controller layout feel, I'm a happy camper.
  • I got the console about a month ago, and experienced immediate problems with connecting to the Playstation Store and Playstation network (my internet connection is fine...everything having to do with the problem is on Sony's end).
  • Blue light of death is caused by broken HDMI port or broken cord witch means some chip of metal or something in the HDMI port is broken.

What customers say about "Features"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • Controller is very nice to handle, little bit bigger than the xbox 360's controller. This one comes with a black controller, however you can purchase a white controller (separately).
  • You can multitask, snap an app, for example, say... either twitch or youtube and you can be watching a stream or video while either browsing other stuff.. playing a game... or watching a stream on twitch
  • You can "now" finally listening to music, thru background music, pandora is one of them that allows this, it cam sometimes be buggy fyi.
  • You WILL NEED an HD TV to play on the xbox one, the reason being as it does not have the "red, white, yellow" (av (audio/video) adapter) cables port like the xbox 360's did, only HDMI cable will work.
  • You will probably need lots of batteries, as it does not have the "rechargeable" pack like the xbox 360's did.
  • The Xbox setup is complicated and takes some time.
Sony PlayStation 4 Console Batman Arkham Knight Bundle Limited Edition
  • I love my collector's edition Batman PS4. The matte silver finish on the console and controller is what drew me in. Do not get me wrong, I loved the original black console, but the fact of the matter is that the gloss black HDD cover is prone to scratching.
  • The controller is equally as good looking. Would have been over the top had they slapped a logo or decal on the controller too, but I'm not complaining.
  • The controller is gorgeous and feels great.
  • I waited to get a PS4 because of the lack of DLNA and other features, but the most recent update brings some new things. Now is the time to get a PS4. I skipped the launch date PS4 and the White Destiny Bundle but when I saw this design I knew I had to get it.
  • You can share all your digital media from your computers or external hard drives to the PS and scroll through them like your PS is a media center computer...
