    Xbox One's new slogan should be


    "...it also plays games"
    My God promised me "hope and change" over 2000 years ago, how is your god working out?

    is it me or are we missing Youtube on every country?! :O

    seems weird as the 360 and ps3 have it.. and next gen which supposed to be all about entertainment... youtube would be one of the first apps i would install, but i have my pc/laptop/phone/tablet/xbox360/ps3/smart-tv to watch youtube on for now.. although YT on the 360 is really crap but on the ps3 its good :O
    It appears Google has decided not to make a Youtube app for either of the next-gen consoles. Youtube will be playable in Xbox One's Internet Explorer however. I assume the same is true of the PS4's web browser.
    Gamers have two hobbies: Playing games, and complaining about those games

    Well I'll use most of the apps, if not my family will.
    Can I come over and use your apps with your family?

    Netflix, TED, maybe YouTube if we get it. Those are the only apps I care to use, aside from the ones that give achievements which I will never boot up again after I get them completed.

    Fully loaded, safety off. This here is a recipe for unpleasantness.

    All apps should be optional, the apps I don't want need or use on my. 360 does nothing but slow down my system when I'm on the dashboard. It takes a ridiculous amount of time after logging on to even be able to look at my friends list or any other tab

    Won't use any of these so hopefully I don't have to have them sitting on my console wasting resources. I use my console for gaming I don't want to watch tv or look at a photo album on it

    I'd be stunned if all of this isn't optional. How hard is it to NOT install something?

    Complainers gunna complain...

    Would like youtube and pandora. I'm surprised no one mentioned Pandora.

    I hope they get Slacker on the One soon. I listen to music on that app all day
