    I bet most people will probably just play on-line with their friends (even if they live just a 5 minutes walk from their house), this is what made Xbox LIVE big, but these improvements are always welcome, not all gamers can afford an Xbox One.

    Does Xbox One support multi-displays? Having 2 big screens each split in 4 could be cool. Too bad I don’t have 7 friends though. LOL

    This is probably the most interesting feature of XBone to me. (Not that interested with either competitor tbh)
