Happy hunting to those of you heading out tonight to pickup your new Xbox.  Even though the discussion has been lively in this thread, I hope all goes well tonight and tomorrow for everyone.  I remember each launch day like it was a holiday.  Enjoy the day, now they only come around every 7-8 years.  I'm looking forward to reading impressions.

Which will only increase over time.  Hopefully XBO can get some improvements going to where they can output native 1080p as well, but right now it's not there and AC4, for instance, looks great at 1080p res.

It is already there. Forza, NBA2K14 are both 1080p native. There may be some others.

I didn't know 360 could do 1080p, but then again I still have an old beast from 2005 so I have never given it much thought.

One more 360 resolution question.

I have an HDTV that only does 720p.

I have another that does 1080p.

When I play gears on the latter, it is SO much more detailed. If 360 only does 720, why is that so?

Couple tidbits I'm getting from the interwebs:

For voice commands, if you are having trouble people are having a lot of luck going into settings and calibrating the voice detection.  There is a selection in there for 'Xbox is having trouble hearing me'.   So there is a voice calibration that you can do.

Also, here is an unboxing for the Day One edition:

It upscales everything to 1080 when it can.

If you guys don't think MS is worried about RRoD v.2 then you can see this article about what's inside the XB1


Btw, looks like you can change the drive, but you'll be voiding your warranty if you do

So I checked my order status on BestBuy.com and it says that my Xbone is ready for pick-up. I called the store to confirm and they said, "It's here and ready for you to pick-up tomorrow." I nearly sobbed. I NEVER GET ANYTHING EARLY!

yeah, that looks like it would be fairly simple.  of course, getting the OSs and not getting banned from XBL would be two concerns.

I'm scared to mess with the internals of my consoles. "It's the way they designed it; leave it alone." I've seen how easy it is to replace the PS4 HDD but I'm worried that Sony's software might not be compatible with whatever Hybrid/HDD I would use.

No it isn't.  It's 900p.

It still looks smooth to me. It is frame locked at 30 fps and most games dip below their targeted fps. If it says 1080p60fps then that game is probably hovering around 48-56(as an example) fps on average unless it is optimized to run at a steady 60fps, but not a lot of games are designed that way.

I'm sure that PS4 will pull ahead when it starts launching in Europe and elsewhere, but ultimately it doesn't really matter. Market share will be decided much later down the road.

True.  Either way Bone sales are not the catastrophe that was being predicted by Knackers.

I wasn't referring to anyone on this forum as knackers.   There are plenty of knackers across the internet that have been bombing Xbone comment sections, etc that I'm directly referring to as having predicted doom for the console.

But you're not posting everywhere, Duncan.  You're posting here.  And you've come down on everyone for coming down on the Xbone and then turn around and post crap like this or your "boom" gifs and think that Yellow backing you up makes up for it.

Stop it.

be careful, knackers can get their knickers in a twist and cross their arms across their knockers while looking knackered at all the knocking about their egos are taking and then go out to get snockered only to be snookered when the barkeep is revealed to have snickered at their plight.
