  • DeewekomsNY

    I wouldn’t mind having a second one. Titan Fall, DR3, BF4

  • bluSPECTRE

    I’ve got to be honest, I’m really excited for pretty much everything. The new technology, the new Kinect, the new games… It’s all just so exciting!

    If I had to narrow down the one thing I’m specifically excited for the most, I’d probably have to go with the new possibilities that are now available for developers to implement. We (as console gamers) have never had so many doors open before! I can’t even imagine what the future will bring. Even the launch window has options I wouldn’t have predicted, and that’s at launch! Just look at the improvements we’ve made over this generation and imagine what will come in the future!

    As far as games go, I’m most excited for Halo, Destiny and Titanfall than any other games, but pretty much everything looks good.

    I’m definitely most excited about the new Kinect. If it does all they say it can do, and does it well, then it is a very impressive piece of technology.

  • TomDobo

    Excited for the new controller and titanfall

  • Paul

    The “one” thing that’s got me the most excited about the Xbox One? Is the Xbox One! I am just excited to see the new technology, the new controllers, and graphics! I fell in love with the original Xbox then the Xbox 360 came out and thought it couldn’t get any better but now the Xbox One is on the way and can only imagine how much it will rock the gaming industry!

      Yeah. Uh… yeah. We’re not that far away from US!

      • PS4/WiiU

        They are discriminating

  • RyuNoHadouken

    im most excited about how the cloud will be implemented in ways to give developers more use of the system by offloading the total power used…things like A.I., lighting and other processing related items can be cloud based, giving the developers more raw system power to work with to add more features than currently possible…this will lower power consumption as well…there are a myriad of possibilities with integrated cloud technology that I cant wait to see what they come up with…very exciting generation for console gamers, thats for sure!!!

    As far as what I’m most excited about regarding the Xbox One, while the hardware of both the console and the Kinect is no doubt going to bring tons of new and unexpected features, and the controller looks like Perfection + 1, it’s the games that have me stoked! Online multiplayer (competitive or cooperative) seems like it’s going to be a HUGE focus of Next Gen., and as someone who ends up playing with friends more than with by himself, this has me stoked!! BRING ON THE GAMES!!

    There’s a reason me/my brother have spent the past 3ish months working on this video. :) Finished yesterday, and posted deliberately exactly 1 month before the next generation releases! Here’s To Next Gen!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQQOTpIvEXY

  • Arthur Hughes

    The Biggest reason I’m excited for the X1 is the Total package. TV integration, Apps, Snap Feature, Kinect (going from peripheral to part of the system), and of course Voice controls.

    Having all of this on top of the best launch line up is truly next generation.

    I’ve got to say it! The new Kinect is just way too high tech for me to just pass it by! Kinect 2 FTW!
    http://xboxforum.com/members/thegamertvo/

  • Fraz Tariq

    The one thing that’s got me excited for the console is Dead Rising 3!!! I want it so bad!!!!

    http://xboxforum.com/members/frazzle/

  • Nick Nelson

    It has to be Killer Instinct’s revival. Microsoft knew exactly what I was weak against. Thinking back to 1996 – a November Birthday, I received a Super Nintendo packaged with Killer Instinct and the Killer Cuts CD. It was my first every video game console and accompanying video game. There is a strong nostalgic bond there, as that game led to long gaming career that brings me to this day. I am not sure I will ever be able to experience the thrill of KI on a new console again after the Xbox One. So that is what I have to be most excited about – reliving that experience one more time.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/nax5/

    • https://www.youtube.com/ButtonBros TheRedButterfly

      ^ – ^ It makes me so happy to read that! I’ve never played a KI before, but seeing someone so passionate about it/its being on XBO is very uplifting! It’s a nice break from the crap that people are trying to portray it as.

  • sleepywolf

    I have just been a xbox fan since they left sony in their dust with the announcement of the xbox. Even if i don’t win ill just buy me and my brother one so we can enjoy all the awesome games coming to XBOX ONE! (no offense to sony i love all consoles, i just love this ONE the most!)

    The one thing that’s got me more excited? Dead rising 3, specially because the kinect and smart glass integration.
    http://xboxforum.com/members/jdx5/

  • Dylan

    What ONE thing has got you most excited about the Xbox One?

    Being able to seamlessly switch between movies, and games with no loading. I’m most looking forward to playing Dead Rising 3, TItanFall, and Destiny!
    http://xboxforum.com/members/dmd91x/

  • JustLumber

    What ONE thing has got me most excited about the Xbox One?

    The multi tasking. The thought of Skyping, WHILE STREAMING ON TWITCH, WHILE PLAYIN A GAME, makes me wanna cancel my ps4 preordere and switch to XB1

  • J.o.n

    Kinect has a lot of potential, But I’m excited for the whole package! Im ready to get back into consoles this generation, I’m getting tired of the old keyboard and mouse!
    http://xboxforum.com/members/kman316/

  • Rob

    I’m going to say Titanfall. Its looking like the CoD killer.

    For me it’s got to be Titanfall this game will keep me playing for days

    http://xboxforum.com/members/dragontm/

  • Alex

    This is a tough one. I’d have to say Kinect 2.0. There is so much potential there to break ground towards virtual reality finally.

  • demann78

    Master chief from halo is my favorite. I love the look of the xbox one also http://xboxforum.com/members/demann78/

  • krayzielilsmoki

    Kinect! cant wait to try out the new and improved hardware!

    New hardware is going to be the best!!

    http://xboxforum.com/members/nightangel79/

    I am most pumped for Titanfall and maybe some more Gears (Hopefully)

    The one game that I am hype about is Battlefield 4 the best game ever!

  • Adrian

    Honestly, I am most excited about next gen graphics. Aside from that, none of the new XB1 features have me gushing (I’m not a social gamer).
    http://xboxforum.com/members/adrian/

  • bswolgast

    Titanfall looks like a great game. I am very excited about it.

    Killer Instinct. Hoping for the return of the better Rare days… ULTRA COMBOOO

    And If I don’t get an Xbox One… I’ll still be getting this baby :)

    • Arthur Hughes

      Rare is not making KI, But I can tell you I have played it and it feels like KI you wont be disapointed.

  • Chase Davis

    Kingdom Hearts 3! I can’t wait for it, I know its just in development but im still very excited!

    http://xboxforum.com/members/crazychase443/

  • ps4ant

    Titanfall. Looks amazing

    http://xboxforum.com/members/xboxant/

  • David Johnson

    I am most excited for Dying Light. I can’t get enough zombie games. I also love free-running mechanics in games like Assassin’s Creed and Mirrors Edge. This is obviously a perfect marriage of the two. I hope that it turns out as amazing and fun as it looks in the trailers.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/mikehaegaman/

  • baelnic

    I’m most interested in the Media Center integration. I’m hoping for DVR capability, more free or exclusive media, better streaming apps, etc.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/bael/

  • ChaoticFiery

    Ryse was the game that got me to Xbox one. The voice acting and motion capture is amazing. The graphics are completely next gen.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/chaoticfiery/

  • Trey Harris

    killer instinct for sure. Yo videogames http://xboxforum.com/members/treyh91/

    I would be most looking forward to new Halo a minecraft just because those two my kids are crazy about.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/nygfan/

  • Andrew Arseneau

    What has ME most excited about the Xbox One? Definitely the Games!!!! Most of all, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag. The game brings the best of everything the Xbox One has to offer. The frame rate is phenomenal and I am really stoked to roam the open world and dive for treasure. I am also really excited for Titanfall, and Dead Rising 3. XBOX ONE is awesome and I want one NOW.
    http://xboxforum.com/members/xrayman72/

  • Jon R

    Honestly it has to be the new epic controllers. Might sound weird that I am most excited for that but I think they are innovative and are going to make the Xbox One more epic that it already will be!!! I am pumped!!!!!

    http://xboxforum.com/members/tictacmagic/

  • txmrlevine

    What ONE thing has got you most excited about the Xbox One? – interactivity and switching between xbox and tv / dvd/ etc. increased Kinect functionality.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/txmrlevine/

  • MrLouboy999

    It’s all about the games for me! The whole interactive home entertainment value is nice but it’s not what drives me. BF4, COD: Ghosts, Titanfall, Destiny and HALO 5 are just a few driving me!

    http://xboxforum.com/members/mrlouboy999/

  • Christopher Smith

    I’m excited for switching between tv and game because I watch alot of tv. http://xboxforum.com/members/daldra/

  • opikal

    I am excited for Quantum Break and the new kinect, but with so many things going wrong this year I do not see an xbox one in my future.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/opikal/

  • saholmes90

    I’ve really want to play the Dead Rising game. I love me some zombies

  • Michael Chaplick

    Dead Rising 3 and all the new ways to kill zombies.

  • Nothing5555

    The Kinetic 2 seems interesting, I would like to see if developers can use it in innovative way since it is not an optional device.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/pinkrebunny/

  • GameChanger

    TitanFall

  • Gilbert Nicks

    I cant wait to play Killer Instinct. its a game I have been waiting for ever sense Microsoft acquired Rare.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/lordfenixnc/

  • Rob’s Gameroom

    Because I’m really hoping the new systems can provide unique games that look different than what we’ve played on 360 and PS3, I’m going to go with Sunset Overdrive. I think that game looked awesome at E3, albeit with not too much shown. But it looked visually impressive, incredibly unique, and as creative as anything else I’ve seen in terms of next-gen games.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/robsgameroom/

  • link2nintendo

    My favorite thing about the Xbox One, aside from the fact that it’s reviving Killer Instinct, is the new updated Kinect 2. I was an avid Wii-player, and appreciated what the kinect tried to do, but always thought that if it reached that goal it would be revolutionary in motion gaming. I hope the Kinect 2 accomplishes this.

    Profile: http://xboxforum.com/members/link2nintendo/

  • Craiggers

    I am excited to see new hardware with fancier shading and physics techniques, but I am MOST excited about Titanfall. I loved CoD4: Modern Warfare, and to see most of that team finally do something different has me excited for the future of next gen consoles. The jetpack-fueled parkour and mech piloting look so buttery smooth that I can’t help but feel 20 pounds heavier when I see footage of this game.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/craiggers/

    I’m so excited for Forza 5! That game looks incredible, and the experience will be extremely fun as well!

  • Ian Oliver

    I would have to say the Xbox One’s controller. It just looks so… comfortable.

    http://xboxforum.com/members/nespowerhouse/

  • Twilight Lurker

    I’m really, really looking forward to the instant switching feature! It sounds like a really convenient way to easily navigate across the Xbox One’s multimedia formats so that if I want a break from a game for a few minutes, I can instantly switch to live TV or browse the Internet for a bit. It seems like a nice time saver because it limits the menus that I would have to otherwise traverse through and to me, represents a step forward because now, the Xbox seems closer to being the all-in-one entertainment box that Microsoft has been striving for since the transition between multimedia formats and different feed outputs is more instant and smooth than ever before. Microsoft has just made it easier for people to access all the different features of the Xbox and that’s going to help boost sales, I believe. I see this feature as being a practical evolution of what Microsoft did with the Xbox and continued with the Xbox 360 and I’m excited about it!

    http://xboxforum.com/members/genesisone010/

  • kevin nun—-

    Kinect dos has me in awe! The power that hardware has is incredible. I was won over when I heard it can differentiate between voices, analyze the gamer, and when it could detect your heartbeat just by staring at you! I bought a Wii previous generation because I love motion controls, and with the Xbox One, it has gotten better, now I just need to get one.. somehow.

    PS. I thought this contest said make ten threads, I hope I can count even thought I made 10 threads and not posts (which took me hours)! It was fun making them though, I felt like an author lol.

    I’m probably most excited about Titanfall, though Ryse looks interesting. I’m also intrigued by Zoo Tycoon (I used to play the PC games a lot). I wonder how it will play…

  • Allen Kilde

    It’s a new console that’s the one the that makes me excited about the Xbox ONE.

    Titanfall! I am a little disappointed that they took out the single player campaign but the game looks amazing. The collectors edition looks sick although rather expensive!
    http://xboxforum.com/members/tahora/

  • Cold Heat
  • BlackBox.Inquiry

    What I’m looking forward to most, is the way we will be able to
    interact with our games and friends online, even if we are not at our
    console.

    Too many times have I been at work or
    running around and even just to play cover, or set up characters seems
    to be the way they are pushing things.

    If I had to pick
    a game, out of what’s already been announced, I’d say that I’m looking
    forwards most to Battlefield 4 with a very close second being the new
    Assassin’s Creed.

    If I had to pick hardware, it would
    be the redesigned controllers for sure, no more dead zone when running
    around against your opponents.

    And finally, my link (may it be the lucky winner!!)

  • sleepywolf

    The thing i am most excited for has to be the new CONTROLLER, SYSTEM, and the KINECT. And the game i am most excited for is Titanfall, i just see that game and remember the first time i played call duty modern warfare and i thought finally an online, first person shooter that isn’t afraid to be its self. Some believe that call of duty has set the standard but what they really did was open our minds to a whole new way to game!

    I am looking forward to the improved graphics. As nice as the newest titles look on the 360, they are really starting to show their age! I get jealous when I see the side by sides comparing the PC version to the console version. Huge difference nowadays!
