@freshbandito: I did not have them do anything. I did not hypnotize or command. He wanted to get one of the new gaming mahines and asked my advice. He can afford it and the cost will probably not come down much for at least a year or two. As for calling it a paper weight, that is absurd. There are good games available for both machines and for someone who doesn't play much the software drought is not a big deal. By the time he works through Dead Rising 3 and NBA2K14 Titanfall will have been out for awhile. By the time he is done with Titanfall it will be 2015 and there will be plenty.
If he doesn't care about graphics and mostly plays sports games, and you think he'd like Titanfall, you should have just told him to get a 360. Rumor is that the 360 version isn't even very far behind the Xbone version, anyway. Most of the other stuff the xbone does can just be done with a tablet or whatever smart device he has next to him, and changing your tv channel 3 seconds faster(if the voice command actually works) and being able to make internet explorer take up 1/4 of your tv screen isn't worth $500.
