The inside of my controller (where the battery goes) smells of chinese food. :/

Amazon returns are usually decent, but it's the stock you worry about. Companies really should allocate RMA stock. At least Google do that, and send you out a new phone with the understanding you'll send back the broken one within 14 days.

 

Waiting something like a week is not acceptable for any launch product.

 

Yup, I refused to back down until I was either given 100% guarantee it would be a Day One edition or I was given the chance to inspect the replacement before handing over my current console.

 

At the same time it's not really Amazon's fault either, depending if they sold what should have been RMA stock just to get more orders. I'd hope they wouldn't do that.

Well the day one edition part is simply non-negotiable. You get what you paid for end of.

 

Not Amazons fault, but Microsoft should have procedures in place with Amazon - One of the biggest online retailers, contingency plans are necessary for launch issues.

My UK X1 appears to be working fine, no damage to the console at all and i have to say it looks nicer than in the photos online!

 

1 minor issue is the right controller grip that sits in the palm of my hand is a little lose, so i will need to find away of tightening that up as i cant see any screw holes underneath, maybe they are in the battery compartment if any exist.

 

All in all i am very happy and Forza 5 is pure awesomeness!

Well I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, but I hope it ends up being devoid of issues.

 

After seeing what firey went through having to wait for his replacement ps4, I'm just glad my ps4 turned out alright.

So can anyone comment on the reliability of XBL? Any drops, or problems connecting? How has the update process gone?

It sounds like XBL has been rock solid since they fixed the DNS issues before the launch.   It's been smooth updating for those lucky enough to have their XB1s already.

That's good news. My brother and I regularly use Live with our 360s. I'm glad we won't have to worry about Launch weekend performance issues.

I have a nasty issue here in the UK with my TV signal running through the X1.

 

I am finding there is a huge amount of picture judder when the camera for a TV programme pans across the screen, it maybe also apparent when it isn't panning also so i am guessing there must be some X1 processing of the signal causing this.

 

Can anyone else confirm for me if they see something similar by comparing a direct TV feed to 1 that is going through the X1 please?

 

EDIT

 

I think i have found the issue, i had to switch the TV input to GAME/TEXT mode and it now looks better/normal, so does this mean we may all have to do this which will render any fancy TV options useless?

A friend has told me downloading the day 1 patch and game updates has been slow too. Don't think it has gone down though.

My wife doesn't game at all.  She doesn't even have an xbox account.  Would I have to go to live.com, make her an account, so Kinect recognises her on the console?  This would primarily be for her dashboard setup/netflix/tv use.

well you would need a Microsoft account/gamertag, since that is what the live sign in draws from. Your account stores all of the info about your personalized X1 dashboard, etc.

 I have sorted the problem, rather than turning GAME/TEXT mode on i change a setting called Film mode Auto 1 to either Film Mode Auto 2 ot Off which gives the same results, so panic over as i thought i wasn't going to be able to watch TV through it.

The 25 games on the Games Store are averaging a .81 with BF4 being the only 5 star game (42 votes) and multiple 4.5 stars, 2847 votes cast thus far. Ryse (4.5) has the most votes, 679, with Forza Motorsport 5 (4.5) has the 2nd most with 423 votes. Lococycle is the lowest reviewed (3/5) with 46 votes, and the least reviewed (excluding separate versions of CoD: Ghost) game is LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes with 17 votes; it however sits at 4.5 rating.

 

I know these are only based off of people who actually take the time to vote, but it is still nice to see where those who've purchased the games stand on their purchases thus far.

Stats as of 3:06pm EST on 11/22/13.

Both my launch consoles arrived fine and both are in mint condition and working perfectly. I've installed FIFA 14 on both and Forza 5 plays brilliantly, although there is a bit of a problem with the VIP pack at the moment. I redeemed the FIFA 14 Launch pack and game code, but I've no idea what the launch pack is, and nowhere anywhere gives any hints. Installing Netflix carried over my account from my X360 and Skype automatically grabbed my account too, as I must have paired it with my live account some time recently

 

 

Perhaps I've missed it but I cannot see any option to play remote media via DNLA. Which means my PS3 gets a reprieve at the moment

Where do you want to play the media from?  Your PC?  You could use the PlayTo feature to do so.  DLNA should be in there since the PlayTo feature uses that technology to work.

      Ubisoft Connect unveiled, a multi-platform service replacing Uplay and Ubisoft Club
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Ubisoft today announced Ubisoft Connect, a brand new service that will be available across its games as the "new universal home for all Ubisoft in-game services, activities, and communities on all platforms." The new service will go online on October 29, replacing the Uplay and Ubisoft Club resources that the company has been offering for many years now.

      Ubisoft Connect arrives as a free platform that will be integrated into all currently supported games by the company as well as upcoming releases going forward across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, mobile, and Stadia. According to Ubisoft, this will enable it to allow cross-play and cross-platform progression in its new games.

      Through this system, which is a brand new overlay, players will receive personalized tips depending on their gameplay stats and playstyle, while also gaining easy access to social features like cross-platform friends lists and activity feeds, among others.

      Meanwhile, on PC, Uplay is being taken over by the Ubisoft Connect for PC app, a rebranding similar to what EA is attempting with its Origin to EA Desktop app transition.

      Features from Ubisoft Club are being integrated into Ubisoft Connect too, offering players in-game challenges to complete that provide rewards as well as Ubisoft Store discounts. However, since there's a new system in town aimed at newer games, over 1,000 rewards for older Ubisoft titles have now been made completely free.

      A handy FAQ regarding Ubisoft Connect can be found here. As previously mentioned, the multi-platform service is going live on October 29. Once the service goes live, the PC and mobile version download links can be found through here.

      Halo 4 Insider testing is now live across PC and Xbox One, brings cross-play support
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      343 Industries planned to kick off the first Insider test of Halo 4 last weekend but was pushed back at the last minute. In a surprise opening and without waiting for the next weekend, the developer has now kicked off the highly-anticipated flight. If previous plans hold true, everyone who has signed up to be a Halo Insider will receive an invite this time, meaning both PC (across Steam and Microsoft Store) and Xbox One users are eligible.

      According to 343 Industries community manager John Junyshek, the invites are still going out in waves, so keep an eye out for an email with instructions or head to HaloWaypoint and check for notifications there.

      From Halo 4, this flight contains Requiem, Forerunner, Reclaimer, Shutdown, and Composer campaign missions, 11 multiplayer maps across Social and Competitive playlists, and Spartan Ops content, among other enhancements such as Forge improvements, advanced graphics options, and an FOV slider.

      Aside from those, 343 Industries is finally preparing to bring cross-play across PC and Xbox One versions as well as input-based matchmaking and server region selection capabilities to the Master Chief Collection. The testing of these features is also happening in this build.

      In other Halo news, it was announced earlier today that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be receiving Xbox Series X|S enhancements on November 17, bringing many enhancements that have been made to the new PC version over to the next-gen console version.

      Fallout 76 goes free-to-play for a week across all platforms
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe



      In the Fallout universe, October 23 marks the day that the almost-world-ending thermonuclear war began, kicking off the events that spawned all the Fallout storylines fans know and love. Celebrating the occasion, Bethesda is hosting a Free Play event for Fallout 76 alongside sales and more.

      From now until October 26, Fallout 76 is free-to-play across PC (Steam and Bethesda client), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with the full game - including the human NPC-adding Wastelanders update - available to try out. However, keep in mind that Xbox Live Gold is still a requirement for Xbox One players.

      Moreover, the Fallout 76 subscription service, Fallout 1st, has also received a trial for players to try out for free until October 26. Interested wasteland dwellers can find a Fallout 1st Limited Preview item in the Atomic Shop, which will grant them access to the Scrapbox and Survival Tent. The former provides unlimited storage for crafting components, while the latter is a user-spawned, fully-equipped fast-travel point.

      Picking up Fallout 76 will allow players to carry on where they left off following the free event's departure without losing their progress. The base game is discounted by 60% during the event across all platforms, with further sales happening for the Fallout 76 Deluxe Edition, various bundles, as well as Atoms. Discounts for Fallout 4 and Fallout Shelter in-game bundles have also kicked off celebrating the event.

      Xbox Deals with Gold feature Fallout, Madden NFL, and more
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Microsoft and select publishers discount a number of titles for weekly Deals with Gold, Spotlight, and Publisher (Cozy Games and Bombs Drop) sales. This week, games from Fallout, Madden NFL, and other franchises are available for substantially less.

      Below, you'll find the Xbox One and Xbox 360 games with their respective discounts. Xbox Live Gold members receive additional discounts on a number of titles through the paid subscription.

      Xbox One

      Xbox 360

      Many of the Xbox 360 games appear to be backward compatible so you'll be able to play them on your Xbox One and the upcoming Xbox Series X|S. Currently, Microsoft isn't adding any more backward compatible titles to the program, but that should change in 2021.

      Which titles are you interested in? Did you pick any up? Let us know in the comments below.

      Microsoft's Xbox app gets updated with support for remote play on Android and iOS
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      Microsoft has released a new update for its Xbox app for Android and iOS users. The latest update brings support for remote play as well as the new UI that made a debut on Xbox consoles with the October 2020 update last week.

      In case you don't know, remote play allows users to stream gameplay from their Xbox console to smartphones via WiFi. The feature is a bit different from Microsoft xCloud as it requires the user to physically own a console and stream the gameplay. In contrast, Microsoft xCloud allows users to play games without owning an Xbox game console.

      Here is the full changelog for the update:

      The changelog for the update is the same for both Android and iOS. On Android, the app has been updated to version 2009.1016.2010 and is available for download from the Google Play Store. Meanwhile, on iOS, the app has been updated to version 2009.1009.1918 and is available for download from the App Store.
