Indeed!  It's awesome.  I can only imagine if you have friends over and it signing the entire room in automatically.

 

Honestly, I see why Microsoft was so intent of bundling a Kinect with the console itself.  It's a core part of the experience, even if you don't want to use it for voice commands or games.  It makes a lot of the previous manual labour automatic so you can just enjoy.

 

I'm going to have to set this feature up, that way my roommate and I are automatically logged in.

 

As for why Micrsoft was so intent, it was so the government can spy on us. /s

I like the sound of the xboxone but the only caveat of me getting one is the sensitivity of the camera... this was taken at a demo of xboxones camera

know what that is? genitalia. call me scared or freakish but I'm thinking about my 2 daughters and sons sake. and someone recently. then on the flip side a man had his account banned because he videos his drunk naked wife on his PS4.. http://nypost.com/20...-playstation-4/

 

not trying to hijack the thread but this is something that has really caught my eye. so somebody IS monitoring what you do on your console in some way.

 

sorry my 2 cents... back on topic.

Hung like a horse. How old are your 2 daughters? If they are old enough to identify a bulge in a guys pants then I wouldn't worry about Kinect.

 

The PS4 guy was live-streaming...

Didn't MS come out and say that Kinect cannot see through clothing? I'm not sure what the issue is here. IS that pic proof that it can see through clothing? I really cant tell.

So what is your concern specifically? Are you concerned that a camera might be able to see through clothes or that some people would use it to post 'adult' things that your children might see via the console?

There are plenty of privacy settings to block your kids from viewing such content if your worried about that. You could also disable Kinect functions for them entirely if your worried it can see through their clothes.

All I will say is that from my own usage or testing, I have seen nothing that would make me think it can see through my clothes. And no, I'm not going to get naked in front of it to compare :laugh:

Time for me to chime in on my launch experience.

 

Due to my own stupidity, I had to make a 90min round trip to the next town over to pick it up.

 

Once I got home is when the problems began.

 

Unboxing:  Protective plastic on the shiny parts was not completely covering the unit, so there is some surface scratches.  This is a non-issue, just a sad inconvenience.

 

Controller is not assembled properly.  The left palm grip is off by about .5MM which means the outer edge has a ridge, and the inner edge has a sharp edge where the three plastic bits meet.  I felt soreness where the ridge was after playing DR3 for 3 hrs straight.

 

 

The rest of my experience is in line with the rest of the folks here.

 

I don't know how to join my friend's DR3 game though, as online seems to do automagic matchmaking.

 

Same problem with mine which also causes it to wobble which I mentioned in the launch topic. Shoddy quality all round in my experience.

You guys should really get those replaced. I wouldn't put up with it being that off.

The controller wobble was supposed to be sarcasm but if the seam is split, get it replaced

Believe me, I've been trying. MS support has been nothing but useless as many other members/past members have witnessed publicly too.

No, it wasn't sarcasm and I wasn't trying to compare it to PS4 wobble either. My X1 controller wobbles because it isn't assembled correctly.

Yup.

 

It's a long story I've already gone over too many times, so I won't repeat it here. I've had enough of it tbh and if I can't get a proper solution by the end of the week I'll be getting a refund from Amazon (N).

That sucks, well at least then you can get a proper replacement via Amazon.

Also, did you get your X1 replaced? You had a bad disc drive right?

Amazon are no help either. I've probably spent 10 hours or more talking to both Amazon and MS since Friday trying to get a replacement bundle. Nothing replaced yet and probably won't ever be.

 

And no, I have a damaged console among other issues. Haven't used it because either way it's going back for a replacement or refund.

wow, ok I obviously don't know why in the world your having trouble even getting Amazon or Microsoft to replace your system, but I hope they come to their senses and do it.

 

I haven't heard anyone else have trouble getting a replacement secured from one of the two.  Although I have seen a few that were told by Amazon that they didn't have the stock to replace it immediately. 

 

 

Hopefully you actually get to start using a working console soon enough.  There is a lot to explore as an early adopter.

So far I like the XB1 very much and like the experience. Has anyone got it setup to interact with a Panasonic sound bar unit (with sub woofer)? I get sound as expected but the IR blast to shut it off doesn't work for some reason. I may have to play with some settings still, as I feel I missed something. Anyway, so far overall positive outlook on things.

Anyone having issues with the Xbox One Wireless? I have the AirPort Extreme, it's on the second floor and my Xbox One is down stairs, right below it. I'm only getting 2 bars with it. Thinking about getting one of those NetGear extenders and running ethernet to it.
