What can I say about the update??? The backwards compatibility is an excellent feature and the main reason I chose the xbox one instead of the ps4 but the change to windows 10 made the interface ugly, laggy and user unfriendly. WTF microsoft? So far I have seen win 10 running on the xbox and pc....next gen operating system?! More like a disaster. A far cry from the excellent win 8.1.
Once people got used to one overspammed with icons (yet no technical status or information) UI, now they introduced a new one. I downloaded it yesterday, I love the Xbox one, but the UIs are terrible. I seriously have to go through so much useless things to get to the important things? I really don't care about all the social and oneguide things, I can't make them disappear though. I can't check what is my Xbox doing, I can't even update games without trying to start them, still. Dear Microsoft, if you're reading this, please, be reasonable. Your customers are not silly Facebook gamers.
What's the essence of calling it backward compatibility, when it's modified and must be downloaded all over even when you already own a disc ? this is done with no consideration to countries with limited Internet connection.
My roomate and I really really dislike the new update. You guys really went backwards this time.
This is all just wonderful stuff, but when will Microsoft get there Audio support Fixed? After all this time that xbox one has been available I still cant stream from the console and allow my viewers to hear the friends in my party. This breaks the console for me. My Xbox is basically just a glorified Netflix machine next to my PC only because when I Stream with it on Twitch I sound like a weirdo talking to myself. I really had my fingers crossed that this update would fix the issue but no such luck. This update is like a kick in the face now, because now titles such as Gear of War, and Toy Soldiers are available for streaming but I refuse to play them if I cant "properly" stream them with my friends.
The new update has DESTROYED tv pic quality.its as bad if not worse than it was when the first released xb1...Not happy. Spend thousands on a tv then xbox takes pic quality back to the 1980's !! No joke.
Has anybody else noticed that since the update, when you watch TV through xbox one, it is all glitchy. It's as if the machine can't keep up with the picture. It's OK on Netflix but if you watch satellite TV it's terrible. Was fine before update. Might have to bypass xbox with receiver if this continues which makes a mockery of the fact that xbox is complete entertainment system !
I im kinda curious why they dont just make a virtual machine like system, like an emulator. Even with the performance drops, the xbox one should be powerful enough to run any xbox 360 game..
I guess this is because of lack of virtualization features in the architecture.
well, when you use a disc technically that's like downloading because you're installing it. Obvs that's free
what some argue is with internet you're paying for it true,but all you have to do if you're going to update is just stick to WIFI and make sure it's a decent limit.
companies have to warn of data charges they may occur from Internet service providers (ISPs)to cover themselves.
Really if you have any console and want to go online with it there's not much that doesn't require a good internet limit
sajjad, 13 Nov 2015Should i remind everyone that this is not available for PS4 even if you have to download the w... moreYou're right. Xbox is a step ahead of PS but im pretty sure that Sony its going to do the same in the next few weeks, so it depends on what console makes you happier. Personaly y love my ps4 and there's some pretty good exclusives that i never played on ps3 since y never had one, but i know that Sony will make it posible.
Yeah you have to download the game because it makes the xbox one think your using a 360
Should i remind everyone that this is not available for PS4 even if you have to download the whole game it's still a pretty good feature to consider and also many people have blazing fast internet access if downloading was a problem there won't be any cloud system.
Big Daddy, 13 Nov 2015Why cant they just make it play from the disk, we have to download the whole freakin game lol.... moreBecause your playing a ver of the game that needs small mods for it to run on the xb1, its a padded game file,
Aadil Sayed, 13 Nov 2015Learn to read people..."the disc acting as sort of a DRM"Clearly you can't read proper so i copied and pasted the text for you...
If you have them on a disc, you have to enter the disc into the Xbox One, at which point the game will be downloaded from the store, with the disc acting as sort of a DRM.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2015They beat PS4 sales this October, and possibly moving forward.Sorry but one month is not even close to the PS4 sales and the (possibility) you talking about is just speculating what could happen...in the future
