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.

The waiting is the best part!  biggrin

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.

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.

Not exactly a rousing recommendation.

But if you held a gun to my head and said I had to pick a system today, I'd probably point toward the Xbox One—primarily for its game lineup and partly for its interface and the still-in-their-infancy media features. (Also, I'm not currently budget-conscious enough to mind the price difference too much.) Once you calmed down and lowered the gun, though, I'd tell you to wait and see.

yeah, the biggest similarity between all of these reviews is that neither is as good as people hoped they would be or expect they will be in 2-3 years time.  is it amazing or sad that after 7-8 years we still expect more out of the next gen than what they're giving us?  makes me wonder what the next gen after will have and whether we will be happy to have it or only compare to some unrealistic goal?  it's the early-adopter tax and we happily pay it as the flaws generally work themselves out over time, but not so much that we regret our purchase.  

good gaming everyone.  

Both consoles will make it worth the cost over time I think.   I never regretted my original purchases of 360 and PS3.    Well...maybe a little when my original 360 red-ringed.    Hope there isn't a fatal flaw like that this time around with either of them.

It just feels worse because now you're finally on the receiving end.
No, there has been a distinct lack of name calling, showboating, and mocking gifs from one "side" the entire time.

I wasn't referring to anyone on this forum as knackers.   There are plenty of knackers across the internet that have been bombing Xbone comment sections, etc that I'm directly referring to as having predicted doom for the console.

be careful, knackers can get their knickers in a twist and cross their arms across their knockers while looking knackered at all the knocking about their egos are taking and then go out to get snockered only to be snookered when the barkeep is revealed to have snickered at their plight.

As usual that was amazing Ceekay

On a side note:

My amazon.com order is still showing 'shipping now', but I've yet to receive tracking information.    By this time last week I had tracking information for my PS4.    I've elevated my concern to level 8 out of 10.

I'm sure that PS4 will pull ahead when it starts launching in Europe and elsewhere, but ultimately it doesn't really matter. Market share will be decided much later down the road.

True.  Either way Bone sales are not the catastrophe that was being predicted by Knackers.
139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 21, 2013, 07:53:15 PM
Bone is getting huge exposure on CNN today.   They have folks reporting from a room with live actors dressed as gladiators and zombies.   Also showing footage of the zombies walking around New York.

Big time exposure to non-hardcore gamer groups.

Well you know initially I wanted to make the PS4 in my living room my primary PS4, but then I realized I spent a lot of time in my bedroom, so I changed that one to primary. Then I found myself doing a lot of cooking, so I changed it to the kitchen PS4. Then I finally came to my senses and made my bathroom PS4 primary.

Couple tidbits I'm getting from the interwebs:

For voice commands, if you are having trouble people are having a lot of luck going into settings and calibrating the voice detection.  There is a selection in there for 'Xbox is having trouble hearing me'.   So there is a voice calibration that you can do.

Also, here is an unboxing for the Day One edition:

Same here.


Me too, but an IGN correction to their review tells you to be sure and go into settings to make it your primary.  I wonder if it's a situation only IGN came across because they might have more than one PS4 they are looking at?   I dunno....

I did it just in case.

When all else fails, attack the messenger....not the message. If you just want to throw around silly pics and names, then by all means have at it. Care to refute the review? The PS4 is $100 cheaper and plays the multiplatform games better. The XB1 has exclusives though and if you like them, then you should get the XB1. What is wrong in that statement?


I will pose this question one more time.   When all else WHAT fails?   Reviews have been slightly more positive on the Xbone hardware than the PS4.   There is nothing to defend against except the pile on.

We gonna dig up taglines? Have you watched the very first video of the dude unpacking it?

He is not the guy I'd stand behind and go "This guys' opinion matters to me!" Because, really, his entire tone, JUST OPENING THE BOX, is "How is this less than PS4". If that's what you're looking for - perhaps an external validation of your own beliefs, go for it. I'm good though. I kinda know what I'm getting myself into, and I'm ok with it. I'll take the lesser console, s'cool.

a bunch of friends from work are all going with the Xbox one, and I think I'm not missing out by skipping on the both consoles yet. I'm looking forward to some upcoming titles and we'll see where things sit by Q1. Until then, it looks like I've got some good gaming ahead of me. Perhaps not the best, but I don't have another 600+tax to shell out.


Aside from the guy being biased.   I would like to see an unboxing vid.    Can you link it?

According to IGN, you should go into your settings and make your PS4 your 'primary PS4'.   This will enable offline play.

Yes I don't understand why you're being defensive either. I don't think anyone has spared Sony. Tons of people said that they wouldn't get the PS4 if it didn't have local streaming which as an extremely valid point.
Also, why are you expecting congratulations for good reviews? Did you make the game?

Yeah, there are some people here that are VERY defensive over the XB1. I don't blame them, I'd be defensive as well and was when the shoe was on the other foot when they were kicking the PS3 all around this forum. It's kind of amusing seeing the Xbox crowd on the defensive after all the aggressive trash talking last generation. What goes around, comes around.

It's all good though. I may even get an XB1 tomorrow night. LOL....it's mine if I want it. I still don't know. It depends on Ryse reviews.

I bought both consoles back then, and I bought both this time around.  I'm not being defensive.  I'm calling people out on pure out TROLLING against the Bone these past months.  Twice today already the bandwagon jumped out of their collective pajamas on two stories that turned out to be false or totally misleading.

Edit to add:  I'm hopeful on Ryse.   The Forza reviews are positive over all, and apparently the graphics are stupid pretty.


I'm not sure that it's trolling. Are they lying? Someone posted a link to the Microsoft support page that stated specifically that it did not support surround sound. Is it their fault that MS did a 180 on so much stuff that they weren't able to update all the things they changed?  I'm not sure what the second story is so I can't comment about it.  I would have to say that Sony's shit gets posted about as often as Xboxs shit but is it their fault that MS has so much more to post about? Currently, looking at Google news, both products seem to be getting equally as warm of a reception as the other. There's no conspiracy here.
