I have only been contacted once about my internet usage.

"You might have a virus... you have used over 400GB... we have businesses that don't use that much.."

Porn!

A nice interview with Phil Spencer about where things stand and where they are heading (ignore the sensationalist title):

I just got this email yesterday;

"Thank you for choosing Cox, we appreciate your business!

We have provided notice to you recently regarding your monthly data usage, and as a reminder your current Cox High Speed Internet package includes a data plan of 300 Gigabytes. As of June 10, 2014, your household has used 340 Gigabytes of usage data in the current billing cycle."

I have 5 people in my house using internet. Netflix, youtube, anime, plus gaming all adds up.

From http://news.xbox.com/2014/06/xbox-on...update-preview :

As we head home, we can’t wait to dig into your ideas and explore what may be possible for the future of Xbox. What better way to keep this momentum going than to share what’s coming in July. Here’s a shortlist of features rolling out in the next few days to folks getting early access to the Xbox One system update.

  • Snap Mode for Achievements. As we showed at our E3 Green Carpet event before the show, we’re offering an easier way to track and view your achievements in the moment. With Achievement Snap, you can track your achievement progress in real time without ever leaving the game. You can also ‘Get Help’ on any Achievements you’re struggling with. Xbox will scan the web for you and deliver relevant tips and strategy content right to your TV.
  • Double-tap to Snap. Double-tap the button on your controller to bring up Snap Center, where you can launch Achievements or any other snap-able app, without leaving your game. Already have an app snapped? Double-tap quickly switches between your game and the snapped app.
  • Choice of Spoken Language. Folks in New Zealand, Ireland and Austria, with this update in July, will be able to select voice control using the English or German voice models from other countries. And if you're an expat in an English-speaking country, you, too, can choose any of the other English language models that fit you.
  • Future Digital Bundles and Compilation Discs. We’re doing some work now so that publishers will have options for great digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future. As we test this feature, we’ll be seeing more flexible combinations of game titles and game content.
  • ‘Like’ Game DVR clips. We’re adding the ability to ‘Like’ all your favorite Game DVR clips as well as activity feed items in SmartGlass.

I still despise snapping anything to the side of my screen, but a better achievement app is awesome.

So this would have belonged in the F Aaron Paul thread if it weren't closed.

Yeah, that thread got bracked!

I tried it at the loudest setting my monitor speakers go and it didn't do anything.

Then again, my One is female and that bitch just doesn't listen all the time...

Doubt it, it's 1/2 off because of Games with Gold. They give us deals now. Forza and Dead Rising 3 were both $20-$30 off recently.

I'm betting on LocoCycle and Crimson Dragon free in July if they stick with 2 arcade titles. If they add a full game into the mix, then it's one of those games and Zoo Tycoon.

For sure see Zoo tycoon being the 1st free full game but as to when might be a couple more months down the road. For sure they need to get a bit more content out there as there are not much to offer up for free without repeating themselves already this year.

I'm hoping they start doing what PS4 does and put a brand new game up for free. They did it with Resogun, Outlast, Mercenary Kings etc etc. That's one way to not repeat themselves and ensure 2 games a month.

I bought Peggle 2 immediately after seeing it on sale because of this thread, it's pretty great.

Half off Strider, you say? That's tempting...
