Best answer: If you WILL play their exclusives, then you need THEIR console. just get a certified refurbished 500 GB console. buy those games used on disc, unless you see a great sale else where, digital or not. take the time and shop around. it's your money.
then, if you need more space, you can either delete games you don't play to install new ones, or get an external hard drive. you CANNOT use one you already have for your PS4. every time you plug a new one into a Xbox One, you have to reformat it, and it'll erase the memory. you can find 2 TB external hard drive for around $100 or even less at some stores.
if you want to play online multiplayer for Xbox Live, you need a gold account. it's $60 retail for 12 months like it is for PS Plus on PS4. cdkeys.com sells them for $45 dollars for 12 months. If you're in the US, start using this service - Microsoft has a search engine - Bing, along with their own browser - Edge. Between PC and mobile devices, you can earn rewards by searching everyday, up to 300 points a day. Xbox Live Gold for 12 months is one of many rewards you can earn through searching. it costs 30,000 points to earn 12 months of Xbox live gold. if you search every day, it'll take around three months to complete. if you search for the year, you can earn around 36 months of gold. either make sure the digital code won't expire, and print it out and save it. or, i believe you can add up to three years of total Xbox Live gold on your account.
you also get free backwards compatibility with Xbox One for some Xbox 360 games. you can find the list on xbox.com. as long as you own the 360 game, which you can buy cheap used or digital, you can play it on your Xbox One at no additional charge. Unlike the PS4, where you have to PAY an additional service fee of $99 / year to STREAM PS3 games. in that case, you always need internet to play PS3 games on PS4. besides the occasional update, you can play offline on Xbox One.
Again, it's YOUR money you're spending. if YOU will play the games, get the console. if YOU won't play the games, don't get it. it's that simple. do some research - watch live streams on twitch or other services, game plays / reviews on YouTube or elsewhere, and even go to some stores like Best Buy, where they may have some set up for customers to try.
