Pleased to see the introduction of auto login mind, I've got my kinect switched off most of the time, so its a pain having to sign in each time etc. External storage will be vital given how little the internal hardrive holds, and how much I've used already on just installing games really. I'll have to pick something up for that when I can.

I am just hoping that eventually they will increase the storage size of the console, maybe 1TB and it would be sold under a different SKU just like the Kinectless console.

No, the Xbox One doesn't have a native media player. Down the line it will allow for streaming videos from other sources, but unfortunately not playing any sort of video files directly from a hard drive or USB. Is that right, LOD-squa Rayce?

It has the Xbox Video which can be used when using "Play To" from Media Servers, using apps like Skyfta help but as of right now you cannot do anything through external or browse media servers. DLNA support will be coming eventually.

LOD-squa bluexy I believe you can actually play movies from your computer through Xbox Video if your Xbox One is connected to the same network. Something like registering the device on the network and then sharing it from your computer to your Xbox is what I have heard, and it is supposed to work pretty well.
