I usually just leave my console on Netflix, Hulu,etc... when I'm not playing anything and here lately I'm playing a lot of PUBG on PC when I'm playing anything. My Xbox is usually a media machine between big game launches that I'm interested in.
I use the xbox to watch my videos from my portable drive and to watch twitch. just something to be expected since the system can do all these things when no one is in the mood to play games at the moment.
I only game at night when my kids are asleep, I use Netflix alot during times I dont game. Not only that but sometimes people just don't feel like playing something, so they kick back and use the media features.
Plus people have children and Netflix has a ton of stuff available for kids, so some it may be for those reasons. There are a ton of different variables as to why you see this. People enjoy other things besides gaming and with these consoles able to do all of that, it makes it easier to do.
Me and my wife have been spending a lot of time watching new shows and stuff like that too. Plus its summertime and not a lot of new games come out around now.
I have 8 friends online and 7 of them are watching TV, Netflix or Hulu. The other is playing Rocket League. It's not necessarily the norm to see no one gaming but certain times of certain days this happens a lot.
I can't really say that's true tbh, but I do notice a fair amount on Netflix/YouTube/Twitch often enough.
I do the same thing, though. I dropped cable, so if I want to watch TV, my Xbox and one of those apps is my ticket. Considering how often people have their TV on, it shouldn't be too surprising that someone likely shoved something on while they do things.
Currently Playing: Overwatch (XONE); Splatoon (Wii U); Zombie U (Wii U); The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (GBA); Super Mario Run (Android)
Most of my gamer friends have kids, who use their console for Netflix, Hulu, etc. Isn't it awesome that xbox one can be used to play games AND media like Netflix? Part of the reason I bought it. I can use it for multiple purposes.
I'm not changing this sig until Splinter Cell: Blacklist is BC
Alot of people use the Xbox One as a "Media Box" which I dont blame them for it. Its fantastic "Plug-n-Play" alternative.
This is what I use mine for. Only time I watch cable these days, is when my family turns it on, and I can't use my Xbox. I watch a ton of YouTube, just because I have choice over what I can watch, and it's infinitely more entertaining, imo. I also spend anywhere between 10-25 hours a week on gaming. Depends on what kind of mood I'm in.
Meh... I mostly just game or use Hulu on mine. I occasionally use Netflix (I gave my account to my brother since I stopped using it for the most part.), CW Seed (since Hulu TV doesn't have it), Amazon, and WWE Network as well.
Yeah I heard about it ! I'm much more into movies but I dont watch a lot of movies the last 2 years.
They have a lot of movies too.
Yeah but it felt like imposed to me. Last time I went I was happy they got "The Lobster" but there's not a lot of movies that was on my watchlist. And getting more and more getting, but my girlfriend is liking this option. On my side, I got many dvds, but I'm selling many of them these days. Still have like 300 to sell. I think I will end up having Netflix when I'll move on the contry side but right now I feel fine with my movie collection as I have litterally (imo) a better selection than Netflix. I make my gf discover a lot of movies.
To be honest I would say that my PS1 days were my favourite then then 360.
FF Breath of Fire Mega Man Legends Medievil GTA 1, 2 and London Nightmare Creatures.
If you preferred JRPGs, the PS1 was way better. Potentially, single player games were better. However, I would say the 360 was the best console for online gaming (PC isn't console) by far and allowed us to play even the old classic games like Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat 3, Doom, Duke Nukem online easily against other players and that was so fun.
Of course, Halo, Gears of War, Borderlands were also great for online multiplayer competitive and coop both. The PS1 can not even begin to compare to the 360 when it comes to multiplayer and those are the last 2 consoles I owned so I know. I've played both extensively.
