I really wish selecting an achievement from the dashboard to view more details on didn't load up the last game you were playing only to snap the achievements to the side.  That whole system needs a total revamp to make viewing achievements much faster and easier to access like they were before.

I actually went in thinking the TV integration was the stupidest thing ever. I decided to hook up my Tivo just to see how it worked but expected to unhook it. Now it might actually be my favorite part of the console.

The things I like:
1. "Xbox on" turns on my tv and receiver (if it could choose a specific receiver input it would be perfect)
2. Can use voice commands to issue pause/fast forward to Tivo
3. Can use One Guide to control Tivo (although One Guide usability could use some work, or I could use some practice)

I will occasionally snap tv, but not for extended periods of time. Nice for when you are waiting for something to download, perhaps.

So yeah, I really like it, but if you are not using the kinect then it loses a lot of the value.

The Kinect just doesn't work well enough for me to use it. It's super spotty. Maybe I need to recalibrate it but it is pretty awful at hearing my voice.

If anyone is looking for a heck of a good deal on an XBox One Bundle, Target just posted their Black Friday preview ad.  They will be selling the Assassin's Creed Unity and Black Flag bundled with an XBox One for $329.99 and will be kicking in a $50 Target gift card on top of the XBox One.  So if you shop regularly at Target and can use the Gift Card that's a Next Gen Console with Game for $279, which just seems astonishingly good.

It looks like it will be purchasable online as well as in stores from November 27-29.

So, what's the story with this 15-gig Day 1 patch for the Master Chief Collection?  Is it possible to interrupt this for the sake of playing the campaigns, or is it basically locked down until finished?

I read somewhere that, basically, the campaigns took up the whole disc, so the 15-gig Day 1 patch is the multiplayer components. Not sure it's accurate, but makes some sense (and means you'd probably be able to play the SP before the patch is done downloading?)

Yeah, they've said that the big download is multiplayer-only components, so it would ensure people who "needed" that content to play would already be online.

Wow, that's some amount of content that they had to strip out the mp maps from the disc.

I wasn't planning on picking up a XBox One anytime soon, but I couldn't resist Microsoft's Black Friday offer of $330 for the XBox One, AC Unity and Black Flag, and a free game (I chose Far Cry 4), so one is on the way smile  I have one question, though - is my account completely shared between my 360 and XBO?  For instance, if I redeem a gift card on the 360, will that money be in my account for use on the XBox One?  I'm assuming so, but I'd like to make sure.

Any good deals with just the system and no kinect?

No interest in Destiny or Assassin Creed games.

All the good deals don't include the Kinect for the most part.

Looks like the Black Friday sales helped MS outsell all the rival consoles at least in the US.  I'm not surprised as MS has gone out of it's way to move these systems.   

Really good to have healthy competition in the console market

Agreed.  We all benefit from having at least two console market.

Indeed competition is good.  The Master Chief situation is nothing more than a debacle though.

As in they'll do it again on Xmas or that's just what happens every Xmas because too many people are playing?

As in they'll do it again at Christmas on a bigger scale.

Microsoft was really smart about decoupling the Kinect from the Xbox One and pricing aggressively over the Holidays. I wouldn't be surprised if they caught up to Sony over the course of the Holiday season.

I don't know if they'll catch up in terms of life time sales, BUT maybe it will be enough for Microsoft to finally release the actual sold amount instead of the shipped to retailer amount.

All in all though you have to hand it to Microsoft for listening to gamers and righting the ship.

I'd say it was more not stupid instead of smart, people had been clamoring for them to do that for months.

I would be. Sony has a pretty big lead. They can catch up eventually if MS keeps practically giving the console away but it won't happen by Christmas time.

They don't necessarily need to catch up to PS4 to be successful and profitable. They're making all their money off of software, so as long as they have enough units out there to make money off games and keep developers interested in making games, they should be fine. Now Sony needs to stop resting on their laurels and get some good exclusives out.

I still want to be able to decouple my digital games and "resell" them. Here's to hoping this becomes available in the near future.

This may happen someday, if you are in the EU.  There's been talks of this directed at Steam games for some time now.  State-side, I doubt it will ever gain any ground with industry or politicians.

It doesn't need political support.

Being able to resell to EB's and WalMarts of the world isn't the end of the world. Considering the fact that MS accounts also allow two stage authentication there is no reason they couldn't do it.

They had a system which was going to "almost" work - Mattrick's direction was to force always on, but it should only required that it be on during the transaction (turn on your console, flag certain titles for resell and head to the store). MS has those licenses sitting in a "waiting for transaction" and aren't available to be played unless the flags are removed, and then the store can retrieve them based on your authentication while there.

You can also buy the used licenses which are effectively printed keys. EB makes money, the pub gets a cut of the sale, and I get to drop old games I'll never EVER play again. Win, Win, Win.

My point RE political is I don't see any of the major companies doing this willingly without some form of gov't requirements.  In their eyes, the cut they get from a re-sell is always going to be lower than a fresh purchase.  Yes, they could make it so you can't trade/gift which would prevent a secondary market, but even with an open market (like Steam's card/in-game crap market), there's no monetary incentive to allow it. 

I'm with you though Purge, I would love to be able to recoup games that I have bought digitally but never plan on replaying, didn't enjoy or simply didn't get working on PC.
