Took two weeks but at least Ubisoft support figured out my UPlay account issue and I can finally connect and play the dang game.  icon_cool

Had my first 'issue' last night when I purchased Peggle 2. After it was downloaded, I launched it and was a little freaked out to see it blank the screen for a couple of beats and then just go back to the 'desktop' or Home or whatever. A restart of the console didn't change the behavior - launch, wait, CTD. Ended up uninstalling, then had to quit out of the Store as it still said Play, then I could Install it again and then finally... it worked.  icon_confused

don't you have to get up to get the disc anyways?

That's not the point. It's there in the past consoles and the PS4, surprised to not find it on the XBone. Found something googling around saying that it would allegedly be in 'the next update' so I guess we'll see.

I bought directly from MS, I spend a lot directly with them.  They should just send me an f'n controller and then let me send them the broken one back on their dime.

That sucks. I reported my defective (non Day One) controller on Wednesday with Amazon and they had a new one on my doorstep this afternoon.

Reading this page of the thread is there anyone here who hasn't had a hardware issue with the Xbone yet? Whether it's the controller or the disc drive?

No problems so far on mine.

Same here. I've had no problems at all.

Only my third day with the system but so far... no problems!  icon_biggrin

They need more of this:

And they need it right in the system too. While getting ready for work this morning, Hark and I discovered that double-tapping the X logo will toggle focus between app and snapped app.

Oh thank you!  I was hitting X, manually switching, and hitting A.  Nice to know you can just double tap and it will automatically switch over.

I just got mine setup last night and the introduction videos mention this at least twice.  ninja

Not having any experience with Windows 8 I am NOT a big fan of this interface, looks like it will take some time to get used to. Impressed with the voice command integration, though.  thumbsup

Out of curiosity, can you stack the two consoles? The 360 Slim is vented on the top so hoping it can sit on top of the Xbox1 without blocking anything. Worked fine for the PS3/PS4, hoping the same applies here.

Of course, it all depends on how much downloading you do.  I have a 32GB which it shows as a '29GB Capacity' card with ~6GB left on it. I have ~30 games downloaded, a mixture of Vita & PSP / PS1 games plus saves and installed data from 10 cartridge games.

Still can't play this damn game on my PS4. Well... not so much can't as refuse to as it will not log into UPlay. Because of that, there's no progress tracking, no use of the 'Companion App' and a giant blue box keeps popping up reminding me I'm not connected - over and over.  disgust

Went back to AC2 on the PS3 and it connects to UPlay just fine and shows me all of the previous AC games I've played. Create a support case but no clue how long it will be before it's answered or if it will be any kind of helpful.  [sigh]

One more 360 resolution question.

I have an HDTV that only does 720p.

I have another that does 1080p.

When I play gears on the latter, it is SO much more detailed. If 360 only does 720, why is that so?

It upscales everything to 1080 when it can.

So is UPlay on the PS4 completely borked right now? Redeemed the 'Passport' and it's never been able to connect to the Ubisoft servers, which even the single player game constantly reminds me of.  disgust

I've been able to use this since the beginning.  odd that you've been having difficulties. 

looking at the games official forums I've seen a bunch of threads about uPlay connection issues.  I've been keeping an eye on them to see if anyone figures out how to enable the 120mhz refresh rate for 1920x1080 on the PC.

The forums were offline this morning when I went looking, but they're back up now. And yes, easy to find quite a number of people in the same boat as I am. Found this:

when i called yesterday the rep just said it's a known issue and they are working on fixing it. said just to keep trying over the next couple of days

So off playing something else until they get this ironed out.

This video is getting me to upgrade to a 1TB SSHD. This was done on the PS3. I wonder if the PS4 difference will be as stark.
I found this speed comparison on IGN. There doesn't seem to be much of an advantage for BF4 but the load times for COD are basically cut in half. More evidence that IW are completely shit?

Also, changing the PS4 drive is child's play:
http://m.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/How_to_Replace_a_PS4_Hard_Drive


Swapping drives was very easy.  Easier than with PS3, even (it had that very tiny blue screw that was easy to mangle).  I am already something like 20% filled on it, IIRC, so I'm very glad I made the swap.

What drive did you end up going with?

I went with a Seagate Hybrid 1T.

The only hiccup I experienced was choosing Update in the safe mode boot menu instead of Reinitialize.  Caused a bit of a panic, but all was great in the end.

Cool, thanks.

I think the Vita Remote Play will work if the PS4 is in standby mode.

Read that there's a "new game plus" since it could take multiple runs through the game to get all of the collectables.

Hmmm... guess I'll have to talk the wife into playing it with me.

No, you guys just need to add me as a PSN Friend (as Machane) and then get ahead of me so I can benefit from your play throughs.  smile   (or the fact that I'm already near the end of chapter 4 can benefit you, heh)

I'm still not exactly clear how the collectibles work since nobody on my limited Friends list has played much, but every time you find one of those chests I think if a Friend has gathered it you may get a choice between what they found and what you found or something?  Or maybe you just get both?  It's a random system with pieces for several different gadgets, so even being able to choose pieces to complete one you have parts for would be a help.

Yes, the collectables seem to be random and if a friend has already hit that spot you can either choose from what you found or what they found.  I'll send you a request when I get back online tonight.  icon_cool

I'm a little confused by that because its showing me my full name even though I told it not to.

That's why I asked also because it's showing my real name on my screen but in the privacy setting I have it set not to.  So I don't know if it just shows up that way just on my console?  My PSN name is Buckeye Shane, can anyone who is friends with me tell me if that is what is showing up on their screens?

As noted, it shows you your name on your console but your PSN ID to your friends and in messages / feeds. Unless you've told it to show your name and you've both done and accepted the "True Name" request with someone.

That link Jimmy gave doesn't seem to be the update to me.  It seems to be the full install if you are installing a new drive and need to get the OS installed.  Maybe it will work like the update, but you are downloading more than you need to.

The 307MB one is the update that you could pull online automatically from the PS4. The 859MB one is the latest full install and is (as noted) for use if you are replacing or rebuilding the hard drive. It notes that "All users and all data will be deleted" when you use it.
