For an OTA DVR, I'll be getting one of these when I cut the cord when my DTV contract is up in August. The CM DVR+ doesn't have a sub which I really like...
hmmmm that looks good.  I wonder if they other services than VUDU... like hulu, amazon prime, netflix, or redbox?  Could I get chromechast and have that intergrated into that for DVRing?

My point is that all the "Titanfail" comments and "MS desperation price cuts" are just silly. The real desperation seems to be on the part of the PS4 crowd to somehow paint the XB1 (and by extension, Titanfall) as some sort of system in dire trouble, when it's clearly not. In fact, given the higher price point and limited number of markets, it's doing extremely well.

Here's a great article pointing out why sales numbers can't be taken at surface value.

I find that a pretty poor article. The only thing of value is the shipped vs actually sold point. The last one about how Titanfall wasn't supposed to be a game changer/system seller is laughable and total spin(like most of the points). Microsoft has done everything in their power since last E3 to make it into one for Xbox.

I'm genuinely surprised. I figured with the 'price cuts' and Titanfall this would have been the month the X1 surpassed the PS4 in units sold, at least in the US.

Same here. I was completely shocked that not only did the XB1 lose in March in the USA, they are getting beaten badly in the rest of the world. They have "sold-in" to retail 5mil vs the PS4's 7mil that were actually sold to customers. That is a big difference and a rather large problem, especially with "Yes, But OMG Have You Seen Titanfall?!?!?" not having anywhere near the kind of impact that Microsoft was clearly hoping it would have.

I am desperately hoping for a price cut for E3 and a Kinect-less SKU for Christmas so I can get back on board with the XB1.

And they dropped the price to $3.99 the day before. Man I would be pissed if I had bought the game two days ago! smile

Dreamland Chronicles is a fun, kid friendly series.

Ongoing for a kickstarter collectible card game where you can get all the books/pdfs (or can order separately)

This started with Windows 8 and the asinine XB1 decisions (that Of course were ultimately reversed).

This is MS's typical modus operandi. They try something new, figure out what works and what doesn't, then correct it in the next iteration. This cycle has been going on for AGES. Everybody loved XP, everybody hated Vista, everybody loved Windows 7, everybody hates Windows 8. Windows 9 will probably be awesome.

It's futile to get angry at MS for long because in another generation they'll release something everybody loves. They're a long-term thinking company that has the resources to dump a lot of money in throwing crap at the wall to see what sticks. We need companies like that to drive things forward.

Sure, everybody laughs at the XB1's voice commands and the Kinect, but who else out there is taking those kinds of risks? Are we better off not taking those, and never seeing technology pushed forward? I argue that I'd rather see that technology pushed...and that we understand what works and have it next time turn into something awesome.

Sony played it safe....very safe...this gen, and a lot of times safe is successful. It's the reason Hollywood churns out sequels or remakes old IPs. But it's the risks that are taken that lead to innovation and push the medium forward...even when they're not the most profitable.

Can you still get a subscription for home delivery of actual comic books?  I would love to find a title or two to pique my 8 yr olds interest in reading comics.

Yeah that's certainly true. You can download, I think, up to 15 comics download at once. But if Wi-Fi is on he'll have access to any of the comics in the store via the app.

I believe Unlimited lets you download a handful of comics for on the go reading.  I was planning to use that feature to let him read the comics I choose for him not let him roam free.  Obviously I would have to use the old trust but verify technique to make sure he follows the rules.  However, if there's not much content on Unlimited that he could read, I can always wait.  I remember one or two of the spiderman series were geared for younger audiences.  Of course, Batman had the same.

I do have the Comixology app, but haven't bought much there.  That's a good idea if Unlimited won't work.  Thanks.
