Con

Pro is affirming this resolution and thus has the burden of proof. However, he hasn't offered a single contention supporting it, so this debate is already over.

My contentions, which will go unrefuted:

I. Opportunity Cost

There are more intellectually enriching things to purchase other than an XBOX One. Pro has failed to show that this would be a wise investment.

II. Expensive

XBOX One's start at about $400 [1. http://tinyurl.com...]: quite expensive. Why not donate part of that to charity?

Reasons for voting decision: LOL, omg this made me laugh.. "yes" is not a sufficient argument. Also, con didn't use any punctuation in his entire argument. Talk about lack of grammatical skill.

Reasons for voting decision: For a long time in my life, I was an Xbox fan. When I saw this debate I thought to myself, "No wayyyy, how can anyone NOT want to get an Xbox One?!!" I told myself that I would need some serious convincing. You know what? Serious convincing is what I got!! Con's arguments were so good that the site was like - fvck it, we don't even wanna give Pro another round. It's done, and I'm inclined to agree with the Debate Gods. Con came in like Mike Tyson and pollywhopped, nay, donkey-punched his opponent into submission. Case closed. As always, if clarification is needed for this RFD, I am always willing to expand. Maybe I'll just expand NOW! Pro made no arguments, Con did. An example would be the contention regarding more worthwhile objects to obtain. Although this is relative and not really an objective truth, it beats the sh!t out of 'yes'. The cost was actually what won this debate for Con. Cost is everything - C.R.E.A.M. - and was the KO punch delivered by Con. For this - Con wins
