Every game on the system will have 1,000 Achievement points regardless of whether it's a "regular" retail product or a download-only title.

hmmm... I wonder if that means there will be lazy achievements like they had with the King Kong game.
"Start the game" 50 points.

Got mine from Amazon.   It has changed to 'Order Received'.   The next phase is Shipping Soon, which I expect to happen Wednesday night.

Mine is sitting at "Not yet shipped", which is a step up from "Pre-ordered" I guess, heh.

A bunch of reviews went live at Game Informer today:

Dead Rising 3 - 8.75

Powerstar Golf - 8.0

Lococycle - 7.0

Crimson Dragon - 6.0

More reviews are scheduled in the coming days:

Quote from: Joe Juba
We have been having technical difficulties with Killer Instinct, preventing all of the characters from unlocking properly. As for Zoo Tycoon, we just need to play a bit longer. In short, we need more time to make sure our reviews are as accurate and thorough as possible. Look for them both later in the week, along with other reviews like Ryse.

Killer Instinct - 74

Crimson Dragon - 55

Lococycle - 52

Powerstar Golf - 68

Zoo Tycoon - 70

Surprised that Zoo Tycoon is getting decent scores.  By decent I mean 70 is like a blockbuster score for a tycoon game.  Tongue

Couple more tidbits came out today (or at least gained traction today) - the Xbox has a setting to help you calibrate your HDTV that supposedly does a pretty decent job. In addition, it apparently works really well with universal remotes due to the Kinect's IR blasters. I can't wait for the hardware reviews to hit so we get a little more info on how all these features work in practice.

I'm pretty happy with the review scores so far. DR3 is on the high end of where I expected it. Killer Instinct I'm not really interested in, but good to see it's decent. Had zero interest in Crimson Dragon and Lococycle, so no loss there. Both Powerstar Golf and Zoo Tycoon were pleasant surprises. They won't be first on my list, but nice to know I have some filler to fall back on.

I'm crossing my fingers that Forza gets the 8-9 scores we all expect, and that Ryse bucks the odds and comes out higher than I expect (6-7).

Ryse is going to be either love it or hate it - I expect the review scores are going to average around 7, but it'll be a combo of 8+ and 6- to get there.

Installed.

Named "Xbox One Smartglass". Icon is different, and it installs as an app rather than under the games section (yay!)

Man, my heart just about stopped. It was some website "live link" talking about the fact that the new Xbox was "getting shredded by critics."

I then took a closer look and realized it was an old blog page from E3.  icon_biggrin

well, CoD Ghosts for the XB1 is on the way from Gamefly, here's hoping it doesn't suffer the same hassle that the 360 version did in getting here.  Got Ryse in my queue as well, but I guess that doesn't ship until Friday.

That's a bummer, the Twitch/Ustream PS4 stuff has been pretty awesome.  I think that's one of the best features for this new gen of consoles.

That's quite the turnaround. Back at E3 (I think that was it) Microsoft confirmed that Twitch streaming would be in at launch, while Sony said nothing about such specifics. Everyone seemed to think at the time that Twitch had some kind of exclusivity agreement with Microsoft, but that turned out to not be the case at all in the end.

Edit: Ooops, didn't realize I was posting in the Xbox thread. I've been trying to stay out, and I'll continue to do that. Sorry! Nothing to see here!

I would expect you could at least post vids/pics.  Steaming will happen after you've had it on for a while, with the added basket attachment.  Tongue

all this talk of streaming reminds me that I should hook up my twitch account to PS4 so all of my loyal followers (0 as of today!) can watch me getting slowly sneaking around tropical islands.

I think the twitch/Ustream sharing thing is something I'm just not going to be able to wrap my head around for the first year or so of this generation.  Gamers and gaming press alike are going bananas over this ability for next-gen, and I just don't get the appeal.  Even if I'm playing a game I'm really good at, if I start a sharing stream... why would anyone care to watch?  And with sharing becoming so easy, won't there just be a huge flood of crap that makes it hard to find interesting streams?

There will be a lot of streams, and a lot of crap, but there will also be new great streamers that didn't have the ability to stream before.   As to why would you stream, it's another avenue to share with your friends, if not the world.  Even if you and I don't get the XB1 for a while, I think we could both find entertainment in watching Kato beat the crap out of Hark in Killer Instinct for instance.

Now that you have me thinking, it definitely would have been cool to have for forum Street Fighter tournaments.  Hark might even have gotten more than just the sound of a slight breeze as a reaction when he won the cross-forum tournament.

Yeah it's gonna be great for that.  I'm really hoping we get USF4 or something on the PS4 soon.  I'm half tempted to buy Injustice for it even though I already have it on 360.  Shame I can't do the upgrade from 360 to PS4 frown

Sports games too I think.
