Since you really haven't had an opportunity of any significance to get one since it launched, I'd argue the very availability of the console makes it a hot deal, considering anywhere else you'll find it you'll be paying +20% over retail.
Only way I can foresee Nintendo being able to make a run with this console is a price drop to $199 and a pack in of significance, ie 3d Mario, etc.
According to industry insiders, they are already losing money on the console @ $300 due to the price of the tablet components, so I'm not sure...
The WiiU is done by any rational measure.

Even taking the Kinect out of the box, the Xbox One is still more expensive. DDR3 prices are about as low as they are going to get, whereas the GDDR5 prices still will see cost reductions as time goes by.

At the end of the day, I'm still in for a PS4.
What game are you playing?
Any of the DLC is the same abilities that are in the box just arranged differently. They are slightly different and by most accounts, worse than the ones in the box.
To answer the other question, if you like COH, you'll enjoy COH2. It's different...
I've owned both consoles this entire gen.
I will not be picking up a XBone.
Sony wins my business for at least taking concerns of gamers as an important part of their strategy.
Furthermore, I really don't appreciate being told, "if you don't like it, go f-k yourself" by MS.
