Bad Xbox One reviews aren't verified buyers


Well the cat's out of the bag, the Xbox One has been released and what do we have to show for it? A bunch of negative (as well as positive) reviews. This isn't massively surprising, as the PS4 similarly suffered a lot of poor reviews right out of the gate, discussing the now infamous Blue Light of Death. However in that instance, most of the poor reviews came from Amazon Verified Purchasers, not so with the Xbox One reviews.

In-fact,almost none of the Xbox One negative reviews come from those that bought their console from Amazon. Now that doesn't mean that these people didn't buy a console at all, they perhaps just bought it from somewhere else.

However, it seems a bit suspect and suggests that the bad reviews should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Of course there are some that you can't chalk up to PS4 fanboys, or liars, as a few Youtube videos of a disk drive wobble have begun appearing (see bottom for video).

There are a few others too who have legitimate concerns, but until the dust has settled, it's going to be hard to tell the scale of the problems with the Xbox One. Have any of you bought one and suffered problems, or now someone with a faulty new console?
