Xbox One Launch Thread

Can we drop the whole "omg Netflix behind a pay wall why should I pay more???" Crap already? Its the main reason XBOX has the best netlfix and hulu apps around.

That is a woefully ignorant statement. PS3's Netflix app is exponentially better than the 360's. The PS4's verison is really good, but I don't have any experience with the One's.

I concur, the Xbox 360 Netflix app was horrible, I preferred the PS3 one by far

Popped into Game on my travels, today.

 

Spoke with the store manager for a bit, and he said I can bring my Day One edition down there tomorrow, and he will let me exchange it for another, but give me Forza with it, instead of FIFA.

 

Win.

 

Edit: That also means I get to take advantage of the in-store only offer of ?10 off a game when you buy a console, but apart from Forza, I'm finding it hard to choose, nothing grabs me as a must-have.

Might have to try my luck with my local Game. Absolutely no interest in that crappy series. Sucks i'll need to wait until PES 2015 probably, for a good football game

No its an opinion. THAT is a ignorant statement.

For me Hulu is hands down the best on 360 and netflix although the basic layout is a tad better on my ps3 the xbox is but smoother for me and I enjoy being able to use kinect and the big thing is I have never once had to shut my xbox off because netflix or hulu locked up on me with the 360 but ps3 i cant watch more than 3 things in a row before it happens usually.

Those could be fake.   We'll see how long it takes but I don't expect it anytime soon tbh.

At risk of derailing the thread, it's not ignorant of me to say you're wrong. Netflix on the PS3 is objectively better than the 360's version. All you have to do is time the app during start-up, searching, buffering, and the time it takes to go from SD to HD on the stream. The 360 loses in every category. You may like the LAYOUT of the 360 more, and that IS subjective, but on every other merit the PS3's version is better.

 Ghosts was dumped about a week ago, but successfully dumping a game, does not a hack make.

It is being worked on though, make no mistake about that.

Edit: I read not to expect anything until next year, which is crazily (too?) soon. I would have laughed it off, if it wasn't for the person that said it.

We'll see, maybe they feel confident now that the systems are back to using x86 hardware and so on.

Well it is since there is no way to be wrong about personal taste and opinions... Yeah it kinda was ignorant.  Your not wrong either.  An extra 2 seconds here and there FOR ME does not make up for the other annoyances and god how i love "xbox pause" lol.

 

ANYWAYS back on topic.  My order from amazon came back with a update order method crap even though i have plenty of money in the bank and now its prolly delayed and that makes me  :angry:

Hello,

Walked into a store today and saw headunits and controllers already being sold. I picked up a box to read it out of curioisity and one of the employees came up and told me that if I bought the Xbox One today (its Nov 21 here) from the store, I would get 100 bucks off. Had some crazed look in his eyes too so I said no and walked away.

Is this a MS thing or a store thing?

No, Xbox One games have already been dumped. They are uploaded but you cant do anything with them.

I think it'll be easier this time around with a x86-64 processor.

      Microsoft's new Xbox app is now available in beta for iOS devices
      by Jefferson Mangubat

      Microsoft has launched the new Xbox app (beta) on iOS a few days after rolling it out to Android devices. The app features console remote play and allows you to install any games remotely, among other capabilities.

      Harrison Hoffman, Senior Program Manager for Xbox, announced the app's release today via a Twitter post. However, for those who would like to join the beta testing using Apple’s TestFlight app, the program has now been closed.

      That said, you can still sign up for the beta testing in the future once Apple removes inactive testers. Just like its Android counterpart, the Xbox beta app for iOS features a capability that allows players to share game clips and screenshots directly from their iPhone, brings a unified notification center, and much more. Of course, it also has a refreshed design language.

      The beta app supports iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. However, you must have iOS 14 beta or later in order to use the app clips feature.

      You can earn these Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris rewards from September 25 to 29
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Destiny 2 hosts a Trials of Osiris event where teams of three compete for access to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse promises Pinnacle rewards that boost you closer to the current 1060 Power Level cap.

      The player vs. player competition also grants other items if you get three, five, or seven wins. However, you'll have to get seven wins in a row, without a loss, if you want to grab the Pinnacle gear from The Lighthouse. You can take a look at the Trials of Osiris rewards from September 25 to 29 below.

      Three wins: Astral Horizon legendary shotgun Five wins: Tomorrow's Answer legendary rocket launcher Seven wins: Legs of the Exile legendary armor Flawless: Hands of the Exile legendary armor Trials of Osiris starts at 1 PM EDT on Friday and lasts until 1 PM EDT on Tuesday. You can use the Passage of Mercy from Saint-14 because it forgives one loss if you're aiming for Flawless. If you manage to get seven wins in a row, you'll have to manually select The Lighthouse location displayed in the Crucible menu to obtain the Pinnacle reward. This involves jumping across a few platforms and opening the chest where Saint-14 and Osiris are standing.

      Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory demo coming next month
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      A couple of months ago, Japanese video game developer and publisher Square Enix unveiled the latest entrant in the Kingdom Hearts series. Titled Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, the upcoming new title was revealed to be a rhythm action game. The title is set to have a library of over 140 songs, featuring music from throughout the series and Disney.

      At the virtual Nintendo Direct showcase held in August, Square Enix announced the launch date of Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. Today the game maker announced that a playable demo of the musical game will soon be available as well.

      As seen in the Tweet above, a playable demo for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch platforms in the middle of October, probably somewhere around the 15th next month.

      The upcoming musical title from Square Enix is set to arrive on all current-gen consoles on November 13, 2020. Pre-orders for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory have been live for some time and can be placed through the video game's official website. Both physical and digital versions of the Kingdom Hearts title are available.
