Xbox One S: The Only Family Entertainment System You Need
It has been a while since we talked about home entertainment systems. Over the last few years, my family has tried a few different ones, including Apple TV, Roku, three gaming consoles and Amazon Fire TV. Given all the competing claims about content, ease of use, value for money and more, it’s not surprising that most parents are confused about what’s the best decision for their families.
So here are five important questions to ask yourself before you go out and buy another home entertainment system this holiday season:
1) Do you have one of those awesome high definition displays but want to do more than just watch TV?
2) Do you use on demand services like Netflix and Hulu or watch Blu-Ray movies?
3) Do you want to make sure your kids are watching age-appropriate content?
4) Do you want access to top-rated games?
5) Do you want to bond with your kids over something you will both enjoy?
If the answer to any of those 5 questions is “yes”, then you can’t go wrong with an Xbox One S from Microsoft.
At under $300, it certainly offers unbeatable value. In fact, in the run-up to Christmas, most retailers are selling select 500GB Xbox One S bundles for just $249. (I just saw one at Costco for $239!)
With the Xbox One S, you will be the hero of the family. You will be able to watch your favorite movies in high resolution; bond with your kids with games everyone can enjoy (racing games, Guitar Hero, puzzle games); and you can Skype with grandparents to give them a thrill on Sunday afternoons.
Most importantly, the Xbox One S will keep your kids safe, because right out of the box you will be able to set up controls to block inappropriate content, regulate what your kids can purchase online, and prevent them from sharing personal information.
