I might can just sign in to my account on his and wait for the download, I don't know, guess we will just have to wait and see. If we complain to MS they will just tell us we need to buy the more expensive one then.
You'd have to wait to play it while it installed anyway.

Yeah. Also I got to thinking about movies as well. You can't watch any of your DVDs/Bluray movies on it. I know this is just a rumor and hopefully it is. Logically that doesn't make sense to remove the optical drive from a "Multi"-media console. Just take the camera away.

I'm going all digital this gen...at least that's the plan so far. I doubt I will ever use my X1 to watch a blu ray disc. The lack of a disc drive wouldn't really affect me, but I'm glad mine has the drive in it...you never know.

As for the camera...MS is pretty adamant about keeping it. It'll probably be the last thing to go. I do not use the camera portion of the kinect (I have it facing the wall behind my TV), but I use the audio commands quite often. There's nothing more badass than "Xbox, record that." :)

I wasn't sold on the cable box running through the xb1, but I'm hooked on it now. It takes 3 seconds to jump out of a game, and into something else while staying where you left off in the game. The xb1 tv guide trumps Time Warner's, IMO. I love being able to see what show is playing, and the exact episode without bouncing around the Twc remote. It's pretty cool to bounce from netfilx, to gaming, to tv with little effort using the xbox controller. It's an especially helpful thing when your gaming time is dictated by when you wife and kids are away from the tv. So far this is the coolest part of the xb1, imo...and I thought it was going to be a pretty lame gimmick.

Does this work with those who have a DVR? I know you have TW, but does it work with the Satellite companies as well, or only cable companies?

Curious as to how it works with DirecTV.

As for cool features, I'm digging the voice commands way more than I thought I would...especially for Netflix...you never have to turn on the controller.

I think it works with satellite too, as long as you have a box. Doesn't support dvr, u have to do that through the cable box. I couldn't ever see a TV provider giving that sort of access.

I turned off voice controls, too many jerks around to screw with it just to be funny. My wife even got in the habit of toying with it.

I am sure MS is banking on pushing consoles with TitanFall, but will it be enough?

Titanfall is a great game, but it will be hard to top sales over the cheaper counterpart until MS drops the price.The real games for the new consoles haven't hit yet, keeping many on the side lines.

I don't know why both companies were in such a rush to get out their product so fast. I know neither company didn't want to be caught with their pants down by the other company, but this generation is lacking so much with the software. The consoles should have been released at least next October to give developers enough time to make their games.

I have seen and played a good bit of Titanfall beta, however I feel there is not enough to keep people interested in it for the long haul IMO. Plus it is for the more experienced shooter players I think. There is a lot of fast paced moving and parkour stuff that will turn off the casual shooter players I think.

Really like the Pin to Home function.

Instead of pinning an app, you can now pin a show within the app. Makes getting to Brooklyn Nine Nine alot quicker/easier

Price drops on XBox One have started. If you wait a month or so you may be able to get one cheaper. In a month the consoles will come with a free copy of Titanfall so that in of itself is a $50 price cut.

Quote:
Video game consoles usually have to wait years before manufacturers decide to drop the initial retail price; the Xbox One had to wait three months. Starting on Feb. 28, British Xbox Ones will cost £399; later on, select systems will come with a copy of anticipated sci-fi shooter "Titanfall."

Good news. It's worth every penny of the $500 price tag...getting it for $400-450 is a steal.

Titanfall is epic too...if anybody is still waiting on buying an x1, I'd recommend pulling the trigger on that titanfall bundle.

New deal coming soon





Xbox One Titanfall bundle coming March 11th for $499.99

If youíve been debating whether or not to pick up an Xbox One, itís worth noting that Microsoft just sweetened the pot. Starting on March 11th, select retailers will begin offering a limited edition Titanfall bundle of the Xbox One for $499.99. Itís almost identical to the standard package that is currently sitting on store shelves, including the price, but the bundle will include a free copy of Titanfall, one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Sales of the Xbox One have been gradually sliding behind the PlayStation 4 since launch, but this deal will certainly get the attention of the consumers who have yet to decide on a next-gen console. You can preorder the bundle right now from the Microsoft Store.
