Just like I figured, both consoles having issues out the gate.  Testing in a lab is one thing, releasing millions of consoles for public consumption is another.  I'll wait 6 months or so, maybe wait for the fist hardware revision, and then pick up my new console.
 

With today

No one should be shocked. MS just needs to make sure they take care of those affected as quickly as possible.

So far, I'm two for two with next gen consoles. Neither my ps4 or X1 have had a single technical issue yet.

this is due to natural issues associated with manufacturing. The rush to meet deadlines and the desire for profits.

The grinding sound in the video sounds like perhaps a part wasn't properly installed.

I think there's a problem with my Xbox One. It makes no sound at all.

Anyone got a problem where the One will output SD signal only thru HDMI? My friend can't get his xbox one to output in HD. His TV is fairly new i think it's a 3yo Sharp Aquos. His 360 is working perfectly with the TV.

So far XB1 issues seem rather few.  With the PS4 issues, I saw them cropping up like wild fire across several sites I normally visit, starting a couple of days before the official launch with those who received units early.  I have yet to see anyone complain on anywhere near that same level about XB1 issues.  It does seem like some sites *cough* kotaku *cough* are trying their damndest to whip it up into a frenzy, but so far it's only a few sites bouncing the same few youtube videos and handful of anecdotal evidence.

Odd considering the One is HD only... No SD at all on the system...

How is that even possible? There shouldn't be any SD support.

Did he go into the display settings and make sure it was set to use hdmi and set to 1080p?

Not to mention, Xbox One was released today world wide, while PS4 was only NA. We'll see if it continues next week for the PS.

He has set the TV connection to HDMI (auto-detect) but the only resolution displayed in the setting under TV resolution is 640x480. The output is so ugly this is definately SD. It's strange. HDCP problem ???

Wow, I'm not sure how that is possible, but yeah, maybe its an hdcp issue. Is he using the included hdmi cable? Maybe try another cable, or hook it up to another tv if possible.

Also, maybe try another hdmi port on the tv if it has one.

Hopefully both companies get their hiccups taken care of soon so we can all start enjoying great content.  I realize that things like this are kind of inevitable with brand new products, but it would suck to be one of those people who stood in line for hours, pre-ordered the machine, took it home, and when you put in the game you've been wanting to play it responds with a horrible grinding sound and you've got to send the console back for repairs, or exchange it for a new one.

I think he ment 720p HD not full 1080p HD. This is normal most games on X1 are 720p HD and not 1080p HD like the PS4.

No he meant SD. He said it clearly.

Also, the point was about console output not being correct. The X1 will output at 1080p regardless of the game. Just as the ps4 will do the same even on games that aren't 1080p native, such as BF4.
