Im getting the one, I almost passed on it but seeing the tv functionality as well as multitasking while watching tv decided it for me. I want to know can you play music locally on it?

Well right now they only confirmed that you can play cds or stream to the console from your pc. I don't think its going to support mp3 playback directly from the console at launch. So if you want play music you have, you'll have to do it via another pc you have at home.

It's Polygon, what did you expect?

Well, the reviews are honest, not bragging about resolutions and pixel counts, but gameplay and experience. I like that :)

I thought so, that means that site posted earlier is an early leak.

I was wondering about that, but hey, I'll take any review at this point :p

Another question - how does the transfer of your Live account work? I'm getting a Day One and will want to transfer my account across straight away. Will that mean I won't be able to play on my 360 with my account? And how does it handle my Gold subscription, will it work on both consoles?

My order for the X1 on Amazon says delivery is Friday.  Tho it has not shipped and the money is still in my account. I have a feeling it will be pushed back.

I had a look through some of the discussion on the Xbox One on the Amazon page. Most people should be getting it for release day. Should get shipping confirmations tomorrow. Apparently they've been receiving hardware shipments today.

We shall see. I only pre-ordered mine a few weeks ago.  When I did, it said delivery Jan 2nd of next year.  But it let me place the order.  Now, you cannot even place an order on Amazon and says"notify" me...or something like that...when available.

All you need to do is sign into your account with your email/password like normal. XBL Gold will continue to work on your 360 but you can only be signed into one of them at a time IIRC.

That's how Amazon handles pre-orders.  Especially if you have Prime.  Expect the status to be updated tomorrow along with the charge hitting your card.

You can sign into both your 360 and your Xbox One at the same time, but only one of each.

There is no account transfer to worry about.  You Xbox Live account, or in this case your Microsoft Account will work on both consoles and so should your gold sub, like the account the sub is also universal and covers both systems.    You can jump between the 360 and the One as you wish.

You will get it Friday. They didn't charge me for my PS4 until Wednesday and it didn't ship until Thursday, I got it on Friday. Same thing happening with XB1.

Will the X1 play 360 games?  Dont remember the final decision on that.

Unfortunately not unless they figure out how to play them using the Cloud.

Ok, dumb question...

 

The same LIVE account will work on the 360 and the One, correct?  I have games I need/want to finish on the 360 so want to be able to switch  between the two if I am playing the One and want to switch and play on the 360.

That's cool. Using skydrive works out well for me since I already use that a lot.

I actually prefer this vs being tied to uploading via social networking like Facebook. It should be easier to then take the uploaded footage and post it anywhere I want, such as youtube.

      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.
