Xbox One Console Thread

Strangely, the *only* time my launch model One really winds itself up is when I load up an X360 digital BC game. 

 

Does anyone know if this is expected behaviour or not with all models?

 

I've got One X and when I play BC games,  my wife asks if the Xbox is okay or not based on the much louder noise it makes compared to when playing standard Bone games.

Whilst on a boring Skype call earlier I was fiddling about with an old One controller I keep in the office as a spare when I noticed this random little message in the battery compartment

Never noticed that before and I have plenty of controllers. Perhaps not included in newer ones?

Anybody know why you can’t seem to purchase the orange box through the store ?

Unfortunately not, it just seems to time out on the final payment screen. Very strange.

One X packs were £260 about a week ago weren’t they?!

 

Those cyberpunk ones were,  maybe that's why there was a big fuss. Perhaps they someone forgot to adjust them to pandemic pricing.

why would anyone buy a series X when it’s the same games, with shinier shinies?
 

that’s the most expensive way to play Xbox one games, isn’t it? :eyebrows:

to keep up with consoles, and to add more storage and ram because of bloatware/ operating systems?
 

Because game creators are lazy and always work for the highest theoretical spec and then scale back?


because triggers broom?

I'm totally going to buy one, but thats OT, the reason for this exchange is that you had called someone out for suggesting an expensive console coming later this year, saying it was unsuitable suggestion, based on cost. This is after you'd suggested the most expensive hardware currently available. :sherlock:

what I actually did was list each of the cheapest options vis-a-vis "What's the cheapest way to get a new Xbox One", for each of the existing Xbox Models: S, All-digital, and X

 

A series X would be "the most expensive way to get an new Xbox One". Also "My kids have commandeered mine, so I think we might need a second in the house" suggests some urgency, or at least a desire to have one before November.

 

I don't think I "called someone out".

 

Spoiler

now I'm a fucking sea lion. Fucking sea lions.

Digital Foundry have done a fun look back at the now infamous Xbox One reveal show:

 

 

 

I was browsing ResetEra a minute ago, and somebody posted this:

 

e256-cover_jpg_1400x0_q85.thumb.jpg.80b6f49fbf1bf75ff69e02173f35a96d.jpg

 

The fact that a magazine like Edge, felt that they could run with a front cover like that, is a good indicator of just how devastating the Xbox One reveal was considered to be for Microsoft and a timely reminder of the extent to which Phil Spencer has turned things around.

Because some people, believe it or not, like shinier shinies. Like me. :D

Having also been back to that reveal for a video in semi-recent history yes, it was an utter car crash.

 

They teased a Halo reveal then made it a TV show for fucks sake.  And then they never made the TV show!  The biggest game they showed didn't come out for 3 years after the machine.  The first thing they ever showed an Xbox One doing was a stream of the price is right.

Why would anyone buy a PS5 when it's the same games, with shinier shinies?

I guess the answer to that is there will at least be early PS5 exclusives, even if that status isn't technically justified.
