Is there a download progress list anywhere?

On Battlefield 4 the splash screen had two progress meters, one for the campaign and one for the full game.

Voice commands work much better than the IGN video..  I am getting about a 99% success rate so far.  There is a learning curve but help works for that


Has anyone figured out how to put the Xbox into stand by mode?


Need to find the right words for redeeming a code.  I've tired "xbox redeem a code" and various other wordings with no luck but other commands seem to work just fine.

Giant Bomb just started a live stream covering the XB1,  I'll watch while waiting for UPS to show (probably 4 hours al least to go).

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.

How do you guys like the bumpers? That's the one thing about the controller people seem to be complaining about.

I read somewhere that the idea is to rest your fingers on the bumpers in addition to the triggers, they are firmer than the 360 controller to prevent accidental actuation but once you get the hang of it they are supposed to work well.

It seems career mode is crap, no reward cars, not much of a mode and poor rewards. It looks like you need to buy everything which really will turn in to a grind. With Micro transactions and loads of dlc it seems thew ay to get what you need is to pay more for it.

For me half the fun is winning stuff i didn't expect and getting to try lots of cars out on the different tracks.

Forza is a superb series but this has been rushed out because of Xbox One. It needed another year to do it properly, xmas release next year would have made it a must buy and maybe the console too.

The question i ask myself what would I gain from buying F5 (which will work out at £500) which has less cars, less tracks and an even worse career mode than Forza 4 and the answer seems to be better graphics which was always going to be a worry. Playing F4 last night didnt make me think i need better graphics, really concentration is on the driving line etc, i only notice how good it looks while watching my son drive.

Gran Turismo 6 could be my new goto racing game for a change.

We can hope GT6 comes out in a more timely manner than GT5.  One advantage for the Xbox is the vibrating triggers, lots of reviewers seem to like the Forza 5 usage.

There is an ugly rumor right now about Ryse featuring a lot of Microtransactions in-game. Crimson Dragon apparently also features this. I can't view this video review myself due to video not working on this computer, but apparently he reviews Ryse and tells about these Microtransactions. (http://n4g.com/news/1397497/xbox-one-review-adam-sessler-reviews).

Anyone have any idea if this is true? I really don't want my console games to have this crap as well, especially not after I purchase games for full price. I know this is a completely different discussion, but I feel the industry is going in a direction I really don't want, with microtransactions, and in-game purchases for real money, even in full-price games. It started with MMO's (Or rather, Horse armor from Bethesda), and it should stay there, and no creep into my single player games.

He says they are in there but are not restricted to paying money, you can earn them during game play, he does not indicate how hard they are to get without paying money but he also says they are unnecessary.

While I'm not over the moon about how the XBone looks I am hopeful that having the power supply outside the box in addition to the copious venting will keep any heat related issues away.  Oh and Amazon shipped and I've gotten Friday off.

I have to ask, are we talking no hope of a patch to increase game performance on the XB1?  I mean what PS4 title actually shipped with the promised 1080p support? Resogun?  AC4 needed a patch so why can't the Xbox do the same?

and my console has shipped along with Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5 should be shipping soon.  for some reason they didn't box everything together, so I'll have 3 packages coming.

still wondering what the 'Promotion Applied:    -$20.00' is from, not complaining though.

No shipping info on anything but Battlefield 4 yet, I'm actually thinking of taking Friday off so Amazon had better get on the stick, I don't need a forgeforsaken event on Friday.

I'm surprised no-one talks about Zoo Tycoon? Thats actually a game I would really love to try out. I know its Kinect only, but I can live with that, if its a good tycoon/sim game. It would be fun with the kids as well, but I love the game type so I'd be sure to play it on my own as well.


I saw Gamespot playing it today and the Kinect stuff is still embargoed so I infer from that that you don't need Kincet to play since they couldn't talk about it.  Of course all Xboners will have Kinect so we are covered there.

Xbox1
Dead Rising
Forza
Ryse

Probably see which multiplayer game is getting the most play, hoping that is battlefield 4 since COD seems to be getting poor reviews in regards to the next gen advancements or lack there of.

Tempting to check out the new Mario title but that would mean buying a WiiU as well, seems excessive.

Sorry, I didn't mean to demean your issues at all (or anybody else's).  It was more a case of me getting worried about my PS4 with all the bad news floating around and probably using the wrong imagery for conveying that thought. 

I apologize for misreading your intent, I blame my PS4.   Tongue. I hope yours is trouble free and mine remains so as well after my safe reboot

Mine just scared me.  I left it downloading AC4 and when I came back 30 min later the PS4 had ejected my Killzone disc and I could hear the drive grinding every 15 secs.  I tried putting the unit in standby but that did nothing to solve the issue and the PS4 would not allow the KZ disc to be inserted.  I pulled the plug and after the PS4 rebooted in safe mode everything seemed to be working.  Don't have a warm fuzzy feeling about this thing.
145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: November 17, 2013, 09:55:46 AM
I do like the PS4 menus and such, seems pretty snappy and the game audio coming though the controller into my headset is probably my favorite feature.  Vita linking was super fast and easy but I can play using my computer monitor whenever I want so I don't see much remote play in my future.  I like my 360 controller better than the PS4 one but that is probably due to spending so much time with it, as stated earlier I too find my fingers in between R1 and R2 instead of falling onto R2/L2 and I'm more of a fan of the offset sticks as opposed to the PS4 setup, still it is a nice controller and I bet I will get used to it quickly.  Right now I'm happy to have the PS4.
146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: November 17, 2013, 09:48:29 AM
Too bad abouit PSN being down, I only have Killzone on disc and it isn't keeping my attention at all.  I was thinking of buying AC4 off the PSN store but can't do that.  Killzone looks pretty good at least when I'm not being blinded by the massive overuse of lens flare but the game play is a bit off to me.  Figure XB1 is going to be my multiplayer platform of choice and need something to really show some of the PS4 goodness so AC4 seemed to be the best shot at that, Battlefield 4 was my other thought but again I'm leaning to Xbox for multiplayer.

To clarify, you're saying I can plug any headset into the controller, turn my receiver down and hear all game sound through the headset?  That is fantastic news.  Playing AC4 last night and hearing the f bomb dropped a few times concerned me a bit (6 and 3 year olds in the house).

PSN was rock solid for me last night as well.

Yes you can do that, the controller uses a mini-plug connector and the sound quality is very good.

Good news about the audio playing though the controller and having standard headset connection.  I plan on putting the PS4 in the computer room and running it alongside the computer.  Since I don't have a receiver in that room I wasn't sure how I was going to get sound from the PS4.  The XB1 will go in the living room with room to crash about trying to do fitness stuff.

I don't get why, when they have a system in place today to handle this on 360, they are waiting until the end of next year to announce the details on the XBO version of this.

Could be the library of XB1 games isn't large enough to start the program until then.  Sony getting in with the independent developers probably gives them a good head start.

In other words, this will add another set of categories beyond Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, and it will probably greatly devalue the easy platinum trophies.

Separate subscription needed along with XBL Gold, no idea of price.  As EngineNo9 says it is free until Jan 2015.

Does anyone anyone know if the Xbone is coming with a free month of xbox live? I can't find anything about this but it just seems crazy for them not to do it because they were basically the console that started the whole "buy a console and get a free X months of xbox live".
Sony is giving away a free month (for new users) and of course that will include a free PS+ game (Resogun) and they're giving away a month of the music streaming and actual cash in $10 of PSN credit to use in the store.
I just can't believe MS is doing  nothing at all although I haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise.

Only thing I know of so far is that the Fitness stuff will be free until the end of the year.  Still time for MS to announce something, they may just be waiting for all the NDA's to lift and come out swinging (or not).

Fitness stuff is free until the end of next year for Gold members.

You are correct, just went to the MS page and found it, thanks.

Whelp, it's finally here. The first of the next-generation consoles.



That was Nintendo's attempt to get their console up to 'current' gen when it launched. The gap between it and the PS4/XB1 is absolutely huge at this point. Sorry. Sad to say it, really - I miss my land of N. The WiiU may be the first Nintendo console I've never owned at this rate.

Random: Sad that Minecraft got pushed back. Then again I have the PC version (with all the mods) so why get any other version?

And while I'm buying a PS4, I still really don't know what games I want for it. What I wanted all got pushed back.

And the Wii U is coming out with Mario! and has the HD remake of Zelda Windwaker, two games I anticipate wanting to play more than anything coming at launch for PS4 or XB1.

I've watched a lot of gameplay videos and I think it looks fun. <shrug> I like the Arkham series/Assassin's Creed style combat though with the blocking and the stabbing and whatnot. I really think the critics have been overly harsh on this one thanks to the QTE outrage and mostly just because hating Xbox seems to be the fashionable thing to do. That may actually work in its favor - with expectations so low, it may surprise people.

I'm hoping it will do well, I still have my pre-order in for it.  I don't think either new console has a game of this type for launch and I liked the God of War style of game (not saying this is going to be as good as GoW, just similar in some aspects).
