They need to fix their achievements app. I want to see the details as to when it was earned, and what it means.

Yeah, I honestly wish they'd go back to the old Achievements method. Yes, it's really fancy, but it takes FOREVER just to look at an achievement and see what it is. I mean there's actually a short loading screen just to look at an achievement!

They've actually had demos for NBA , FIFA and Zoo Tycoon up for a while.  For some stupid reason they didn't show up in the store and you had to do a bing search for them.  Glad to see they are in the store now smile   Also looking forward to trying a demo for Dead Rising.  Would love to see one for Ryse as well.

For Ryse I signed up for a 30-day free Gamefly trial, put only Ryse in my queue, then plan to beat it and promptly cancel my subscription. smile

I can't tell if that's evil, neutral, or genius.

genius.  part of the reason I jumped on the 2 out for 2 months for 10 bucks deal they offered me.  ended up saving about $170 bucks so far.

just you watch, they'll take forever to send you the game.  or worse, they say they sent it, but you never receive it, forcing them to take a few days to send you another one, which then takes even longer due to the holidays and comes in on the tuesday after XMAS.  Gamefly can be just as evil, believe me.  icon_twisted

No they only do that after your free trial is over and you're paying money.  That's actually why I quit.  The games took forever to arrive and it was sometimes hard to get what I wanted.  It was particularly disappointing when compared to Netflix.

the first game I ever rented from them didn't arrive, so I sent in a request to have it re-shipped.  I ended up getting two copies of them about a week later and one day apart.  this was on the free trial.

they are a good service when you have a local distro hub.  saved a ton of money while I had them and only quit once I migrated back to PC as my main platform.

Anyone have issues with the Kinect signing them in?  If anyone else in my family sits in front of the thing, it signs them in.  If I sit in front, it doesn't and I have to go tell it that it didn't recognize me.

The 19-year-old student told the Nottingham Post that he'd saved up the money so that he could buy the console as a surprise Christmas present for his four year-old son (right). Instead, he got the picture. And it wasn't even a good picture! Just a crummy--.

So I grabbed a ps4 at launch. Actually got really lucky and with no preorder got the second to last one available. I am enjoying it a TON. My wife is probably sick of me raving about it. So, my point of this post is to encourage a simple non fanboyistic conversation.

 Does anyone here own both and enjoy both? Own one and want the other as well? Or any combination of any variable possible? Just curious how peeps feel. For instance I would enjoy a xbone now as well, that I'm sure of. Just curious. I guess I'm seeking impressions of xbone, and further more, impressions of both systems from people whom own both.

 Ps. Gaming just got good Again.

 Ps. Gaming just got good Again.

I preordered both and am enjoying both.  So far I've found out of the available exclusive games I prefer those on the XBone, but there are plenty of titles coming out for both that are exciting. 

For once they both have very good controllers so that doesn't keep me from playing games on either (unlike the PS3 controller which kind of put me off). 

There are great things about both systems, as well as some small rough edges that need to be ironed out on both.  I think anybody that has either will be really happy with it, especially as time goes on and the OSes get fleshed out and more games are released. 

So yes, we all have reasons to celebrate and be happy, it's a great time to be a gamer!  Even the WiiU has good games out on it now!  slywink

Own an Xbone, and will pick up a PS4 eventually.

Have always preferred an Xbox over the PS due to it's PC relationship. But the PS also takes me back to my console roots.

The main reason i went with the Xbone, though, was because of it's unique features that made it seem more of a worthwhile purchase. I like the tie-in with the tv, though I have run it sans tv when i knew the girlfriend would be home that day and might not be able to watch tv unless she knew how to work it with the Xbone. The voice recognition seems to be working a little better now, but still not great. I like the snap feature, especially with the NFL app. I like being able to bounce from internet to tv to dvd to gaming from the single device.

It still needs improving. I've had a hang-up on occasion, where a hard reset was required......just like a PC. The internet doesnt display all video formats, and along with that, neither does the Xbox Video app when streaming from the PC. Less than than the 360 did, it seems.

The load times are long, and odd. It doesnt update the progress very well.

I dont like that you cant access storage space on it. How much of the 500gb is filled already? I have no clue.

But those are nitpicks. I love the thing  thumbsup

Yeah, lots of times.  It just recognized my daughter from super far away.  I just had to pull the power from the thing because the IR feature stopped working and it wouldn't show TV.  That standby thing is appropriately labeled beta, I guess.  After powering it down and cold booting it seemed to actually recognize me fine and it fixed the IR and TV issues.

Multiplayer?

Yesterday evening I could chat with The Grue, but we could not connect inside Dead Rising 3. I had problems just before in trying to get Forza 5 to build a private match.

A full reboot did not fix this.

OH SWEET MOTHER OF GOD!  So Microsoft finally sent me the accessories for my replacement Day One Xbox one, and guess what?  I plugged it in and everything looked good until I put in a disc and BAM!  Grinding noises! 

Sweet jebus... do they not test these replacement systems before sending them out?  It's not like it was in retail packaging or anything. 

Advance Exchange, here I come.  Again.
