i like the total integration of gaming and media. plus i like the kinect. i dont see any benefit of the ps4 other than slightly better gaming performance.

That's kinda where I'm at. I hardly play my 360 but I could see myself using the media integration functions of the xbox one.

Are you able to use all of the TV guide stuff with it?
What games did you get? Does it come with a game even?

Woooo!!! I'll keep it. I figure I'll use the other features of it enough to justify keeping it for the price of taxes. Haven't received it yet so I'm not sure if it comes with any games.

Comcast must support the TV guide and recording features?

I know there's some cross over functionality but I'll have to look into it more tonight.

Probably a lot but I had a lot of chances put in to win so my odds were probably better than most.

It was an incentive program at work that gives you "comcash" for doing different things well and you can redeem it for different gift cards and stuff. We are apparently not doing the incentive after the new year so we could either redeem it for whatever was left or put it into a drawing for the xbox. So I had a year's worth of comcash saved up for it.
