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'm watching the halo 2 remastered cinematics on youtube and they really did an amazing job with them.  In case anyone wants to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F7OgOCzph4

Halo channel is out on the App Store as well. Lots of great halo content to binge on if you are a fan
