Yeah that video does nothing more than reinforce my belief that people should have to pass an IQ test prior to procreating. Within 60 years trailer parks and Jerry Springer would be a thing of the past.

He bought it and smashed it to make some sort of statement. Performance art? Anti-consumerist? Who knows. It seems like a stupid way to make a statement.

Yeah, it's a stupid stunt. They do that with each big electronics launch. Lame.

Anyway....just scored a cool Xbox One winter hat for free! Good deal, cause it's cold out here in WI tonight! Best Buy comes through with the swag....

It was funny the first time they did it 10 years ago.   Now it's just yawn.

It's even more lame since supplies for both consoles are going to be fine.

Xbox Live experiencing sporadic interruption.  Some are speculation that it's affecting all of MS Xbox sites .. DNS errors and such and it might be a DDoS attack




Yeah, I read that as well. Hope things get sorted out by Midnight!

If not you can update it from an alternate site.   Instructions a page or two back.

Strange.   My Bone was initially shipping from Chattanooga.  I mean my tracking number was entered in and I looked it up on UPS and it said it was received and sitting in Chattanooga.

I just looked it up again, and it magically teleported to Atlanta.   No movement.   No travel.   It just moved to 'received' with location Atlanta instead.   Still scheduled for tomorrow delivery, but that was really strange.  Never seen a starting point change AFTER UPS scanned in the product.

Mine still doesn't have an initial scan which is annoying since I can't change my delivery to a will call pick up until it's in the system. If I can get that changed, I'll be able to pick it up at 9:30am vs waiting around all day for it.

Hmm, I just got notification that Microsoft just printed the label for one of my games (Dead Rising 3) and have yet to receive any shipping notice about Need for Speed. 

I should have just got the games at Amazon as well and said screw the $10 back from MS.   disgust

I'm a bit surprised that my BF4 code for China Rising did not come with one of those scannable code boxes to use with the Kinect, as it is you just get the standard series of numbers that have to be inputted via keyboard.  Next Gen BF4, Next Gen.

Well, it looks like my copy of Dead Rising 3 from the Microsoft Store won't get here until Monday, and Need for Speed: Rivals is backordered in their store even though I ordered it a month and a half ago.

I should have just stuck with my Amazon preorders...   disgust  Now I'll have to return the MS copy and go out and buy DR3 for myself this weekend.  At least NFS is on sale on Amazon now.

I've spent about an hour messing around with it and so far it's really, really cool. The voice recognition has been a tad spotty, but mostly because I was trying to do it with screaming kids running around and my wife talking on the phone constantly. During one quiet instance I said Xbox Pause in a normal tone of voice all the way on the other side of the room and it heard me, which creeped me out a bit. Tonight when the rugrats go to bed I'll go through the calibration again.

The highlight so far has been the Skype stuff. A buddy of mine called me and it was awesome to video chat full screen with no lag. My kids minds were totally blown that they were interacting with someone they knew via TV but they loved it. This is going to be a FANTASTIC feature for keeping in touch with some of our friends across the country.

I have not had much to play with the TV stuff, other than to see it working. The deal breaker for me is not being able to record through the OneGuide, as I live and die by my DVR. So not sure how much I'll use this until more functionality is patched in. Though like I said I haven't had much time to play with it so my mind might change.

Have not had a chance to play any games yet, but the ability to launch Netflix, etc with voice is almost worth the price of admission alone. My wife is loving this feature since she still can't figure out my remotes. Sony might run some games at 100p more or whatever, but as a gadget freak I'm loving the way they're trying to do something new with the Xbone. Once the kinks are ironed out, this thing is going to be really, really slick.

Agreed. That is the kicker though....once the kinks are ironed out....and right now there are a fair number of kinks, unfortunately. I really see the potential here though and I do admire them for trying to do something new. One day, this system is going to be incredible. I just don't know if that day is going to be a couple months from now....or a couple years.

Still, it is a fun system with loads of potential and the only place I can play Dead Rising 3 and Ryse....so they got me!

Let's discuss things to configure or do with your Bone:

1.  Change your gamerpic.    Your old one sucks now and is itty bitty.    Go into Settings and change it.
2.  Download Netflix
3.  Download NFL
4.  Download YouTube
5.  Download the Blueray app so you can watch bluerays

After waiting over 2 hours for Support to call me back, they finally called back just to shunt me to a "We're no longer in the office" message.

And the online chat just got back to me as well, but it's no better than an automated system.  "Have you tried power cycling?"  frown

Download times are f'n ridiculous.

Head tracking and leaning work amazingly well in Battlefield 4, yet in Forza it works like crap.  For some reason they went with leaning for turning your head in Forza and it makes no sense.  In BF4, you lean when on foot and it works great, then when driving or flying if you turn your head a bit it turns your view.  Exactly how Forza SHOULD have done it.

Loving the system, but sadly I need a wheel for Forza (hate driving it with sticks, though NFS might be fine) and I need a stick for KI. frown

Any reviews on other games like the golf game or fighting kinect thing?

My mistress should call me once in awhile fwiw.

So, it turns out my issue is a known issue and they need to send me a replacement.  frown  At least they are sending it to me immediately as an advance exchange and then I send my broken one back, but that's still a really shitty launch experience.

According to the replacement support lady I talked with, this issue (getting stuck updating around 79%) is really common for them tonight and they're just replacing the systems whole hog no questions asked.
