To assume they would breach their integrity is quite an accusation.
Since Polygon and The Verge are owned by the same company do you consider them as useless?

2 controllers. 1 on charge, 1 in play. Swap over when it gets down to 1 bar.
That said, I'd much sooner AA batteries personally. Still the Xbox controllers have the left thumb stick in the wrong place so that's not perfect either
That's the editor BTW. Their bias is quite well known, people get posts pulled from forums. Its quite a legendary thread on Neogaf.
There are other sites that have given the xboxone good reviews without bias, there are also others that give it more balanced reviews. Its going to be a good system, there's going to be some great games and I'm jealous you'll get to play them this week.

Some info found in the last few days:
Cold boot takes 1:08, standby boot is 18 seconds:
Hardware Test: Xbox One • Articles • Eurogamer.net
HD space used/free is not reported.
Cannot play music from external drives (or skydrive). CD, DLNA or subscription service only for now.
You can plug PS4/PS3 or 360 into the HDMI port lag free.
Weirdest one is dobly 5.1 or 7.1 isn't available by optical out:
The Xbox One: The Kotaku Review
Voice control is region locked: German, French and English supported.
Online streaming to Twitch delayed until 2014.
Uncut xboxone demo by IGN here:
Xbox One Uncut Demo - IGN Video
It plays video via skydrive and mp3 support is coming too but at least I dont have to pay to listen to music.
I just hope there are no DOA ones (or minimal) and no xbox live outage like psn.
At least no early review boxes have been dead so far.
Taken from the Ars article linked above.
Scary how slow the PS4 is at boot up - 30sec. Most of it with nothing being outputed to the display. The XB1 was in game before PS4 had got to the main UI screen, ouch. I swear my PS3 doesn't take that long turning on.
One of the bonsus of getting the console 2 weeks after the yanks is being prepared for the problems and having newer firmware revisions. You've got a worldwide launch too look forward to...

The video showing voice was quite good I thought too http://bcove.me/2x9f9gyi
Regarding 5.1, I believe its all outputted via hdmi at least so its less of an issue.
Yeah it does make me wonder how MS will handle it, I would expect downloads to be slow/slower but as long as mutiplayer etc stays online I will be happy, offline for hours is bad on launch night.One of the bonsus of getting the console 2 weeks after the yanks is being prepared for the problems and having newer firmware revisions.

XBL support did confirm no surround sound over HDMI in, stereo only.
Amazon shipping seems to be happening, a few people are picking them up too. Happy gaming!

Stupid nationalist Microsoft, apparently NZ, Australian and Irish English are too hard so voice rec for the dashboard and skype won't be supported till later.
Funny how it can work with all forms of 'merican and the metric boat load of accents in the UK though, thanks MS, we get it, you don't care. At least its better than Sony's if your not from the states you don't matter and can wait a couple more weeks for your console approach.
Still excited to get a hold of mine around 28 hours from now but less cool that MS is yet again shafting everyone else on voice support.
