I'm more concerned about the "without warning" part than the actual maintenance.  If they could schedule it for 2am and give a few warnings like MMOs do, then no big deal.  If it happens randomly and without warning in the middle of prime time evenings?  That's much more annoying.

yeah, early AM would work best.

Xbox One cloud updates may force mid-game reboots

This news is more alarming to me than the COD 720p by far.   

I believe they're talking about server reboots, not Xbox One reboots. It'll probably just cause a disconnect from the servers.

Hmm.. I think you may be right.    They are also talking about possible cloud updates happening during low population times to minimize impact.

or on big release days.

Albert Penello has confirmed Xbox Music will be free (ad supported) with an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Sweet!

Okay, this is not me being negative against good Xbox news, but if it requires a live gold subscription, its not free, is it? Or am I missing something here? :-)

It's mostly considered free because of the comparison with Sony's equivalent service, which costs money (though it doesn't require PS Plus, so it's got that advantage at the very least). I like Microsoft's solution here. While I'd never again use an ad-supported subscription for music (I pay for Spotify), I know a lot of people who'd love something like this.

Love Spotify -- that is all

I got the free trial, and liked the lack of commercials so much I decided to keep paying.  plus it has really cut down on my mp3 buying.

Perhaps a new thread / poll would make sense, since we can't change our votes.

Should add some categories to the post, and let people select multiple ones to work better. I'd start it, but I know MSDUNCAN wants to have a thread title to update.

So here are the categories (select multiple, let people change votes):

New console launch : which ones are you buying this holiday season?

1) Playstation 4
2) Xbox One
3) PSN Plus (incl. existing account holder)
4) Live Gold (incl. existing account holder)
5) PS4 to sell for profit$
6) XB1 to sell for profit$
6) PS4 to sell for profit$
7) Neither for the forseeable future (undecided on which to get)
Cool Neither for the forseeable future (not interested in the titles )
9) Neither for the forseeable future (too much $)


[edit] Whoops. Had no XB1 line, just selling two PS4s ... funny, no one talks about selling XBones for da moolahs. slywink

The biggest problem with both Music Unlimited and Xbox Music is that they are not Spotify.  Just give me Spotify on consoles ya goofs!

Fat chance of that when neither of them is even offering us the ability to play MP3s... yet. Tongue

Maybe we are talking different things here but the Xbox One can stream MP3's

http://www.winbeta.org/news/xbox-one-feature-mp3-playback-and-support-dlna-unlike-ps4

I'm not up on DLNA and personally never played MP3's on the PS3 or 360.

I believe the MP3 streaming is done via a method I can't remember the name of right now, where your computer has to "push" the MP3 to the Xbox One. In other words, you can't start playback from the console, but must do so from the PC. That makes their playback method worthless to most people, I would think. That's why I said they don't support MP3s. If this has changed since the announcement last week, I'd love to hear about it.

If it doesn't I'm 98% out on both consoles.  Most of my gaming is PC these days and about 50% of what I use my console for is streaming my lossless WMA files to my living room during gatherings and parties.  What a lame feature to remove.

I love the MP3 to replace bad game music. I wonder if the snap-to on XBONE will let us do that.

agreed, something like what Rockstar did with some of the GTA games on the PC where you could import MP3's into your game would rock.

With 360, you simply pull up the media player while in-game (hit the big X, move right a blade or two, and select media).

In this case, I stream it off a media center server running on my desktop.

This is the best thing ever, and makes Dynasty Warriors bearable ( I have it loop Carl Douglas singing  Kung Fu Fighting over and over slywink )

My point was the interface was baked in to replace background music with your own. Even if it was an audio book (that way you can get tired and fall asleep at the wheel in racing games too slywink )

I know that but this was a feature I used to justify part of the purchase price.  At this point, with the Xbox One marketing I have seen, it is targeted at being an all entertainment console.  This *should* cover something that was included in the past.  I'm not saying they will lose everyone's (or even a few) purchase due to this, just most likely mine.  The only other thing kind of keeping me in is the inclusion of a Blu Ray player.  However, with almost all of my movie viewing being streamed on demand content, that doesn't really appeal must to me.

I just got a call from my local Game telling me that they've just confirmed that they're getting 64 PS4s for launch (the 29th over here), and that I'm pretty much guaranteed to get one of them due to pre-ordering back in June. Yay! smile

Told them to also reserve Assassin's Creed 4, Killzone Shadow Fall, an extra DS4, and a charging stand.

Killer Instinct might be running at 720p. Why subject your eyes to such horror?  icon_biggrin

Seriously though, I talked to the manager at our local Best Buy. They currently have 80 Xbone preorders fulfilled, and are not expecting any more units. He said he doubts anyone who didn't preorder will get a unit. Also they plan to have a heavy police presence.  icon_eek
