Xbox One Console Thread

What fiction is that then, let's see if you can actually discuss it.

well for me I think it's saying the PS4 has a specialised OS for background downloading :)

Background downloading is essentially just another thread that almost any OS can create and let it get on with.

Your claim of a special chip to handle downloads is good though. It handles voice comms and other stuff too which is neat. I guess the XboxOne may have something similar as it's supposed to have 15 special purpose processors that handle stuff like audio etc.

Either way, hope you get one soon. It's lots of fun. :)

How long have you used an xbox one for angel?

Very briefly

Not my claim, its supposed to have it. And it even downloads my psn stuff while I play other games.

So does the xbox one

They are more similar than you realise when it comes to doing stuff in the background

In other ways there are appreciable differences but in this case? Not much to see here

In fact xbox one does suspend resume so best not compare the os I say

PSN speeds are shite — when compared (less than briefly). The scary thing is the noise it makes (even on idle) on diskless games.

Both systems are dope, warts and all. It's good seeing in between all the schoolboy stuff and seeing gamers come round to both systems. Outside of resolution arguments, we are finally seeing each system come into their own; purely through a real difference in games now.

I for one am shocked at this revelation. Angel talking a load of old shit?

Speaking with authority about something he doesn't know about?

Given your track record with talking about the Wii U, I'd avoid throwing too many stones there.

I'd just like to add that the install speed isn't something that's been 'fixed', it was a load bollocks to begin with. BF4 and a whole bunch of other launch games were playable before being fully installed.

The PS4 having a magic chip to allow background installs has absolutely made my day, though. Also considering you generally only ever install a game once, it would have been an odd thing to get hung up on in the first place.

The SSD requirement is insane in terms of cost benefit right now but each to their own.

I've seen Angel say he get an XBone When it met various requirements and those requirements have changed as the months have passed. Much like Jon pretty much being a sure bet to getting an Xbone all along I'm pretty confident Angel won't touch one until 2016. There's too much "hate" about the retarded stuff MS did and plenty of misunderstanding of what the console is now capable of.

It's pretty frustrating to see people think that the XboxOne can't do downloads in the background. A simple google search on features would show you what each OS is capable of.

angel, it's a crap load better feature wise than you think. :)

Im only going off a lot I read on here and other places, i dont think im imagining that xbone games were taking ages to install? I mean look at this article:

http://kotaku.com/installing-xbox-one-games-takes-way-too-long-1471191836

Also, I dont know why youre laughing at me saying the ps4 has a "chip for installing", it does, the whole 2013 tech briefs went on about how instant they want it to be.

It does sound like theyve upped their game, but yes itll most likely be 2016 or so before i go on, unless something earth shattering arrives, or halo blows everything else out of the water comprehensively.

Just ordered an XBO from ASDA Direct as they're doing a preorder of XBO console + Halo:MC for £329.

The delivery page screwed up too so I could pick any delivery option from the 100+ available. I chose not to have it delivered by email today but just a normal free delivery. :P

I've never had an issue with download times or installing stuff on Xbox One. Seems fine to me. Never used a PS4 either, so can't compare. But, yeah no issues at all for me.

And I like Angel too.

EDIT: Thanks Jg15 from me also. I'm on the dash preview thing now.
