Apparently its just folks not knowing how to use the new system. Plenty of posts on GAF of people successfully doing it.

Seems even though you start a party, you aren't by default IN the party. Once you invite, you have to turn Party Chat on and then you are a go. It's just a different setup than the 360 and it was throwing some early whiners off.

I wonder if BestBuy would match WM and then give the 20% discount from GCU on top of that. Hmm...

I'm awake!

So yesterday did a quick setup, in a temporary location, and everything worked fine.

Put a few games to download, including COD:Ghosts, and installed FIFA 14, I have the disc, I did more things, so it took almost 5 minutes or so, until I was able to start playing FIFA, you can play the demo game, but it's fine. When I finished the match, the game was ready to play. I went to bed and COD:Ghosts was 2% done or so. I woke up 5 hours later and it seems it's done. So far, at least in my case, no network problems with this release.

I also downloaded KI and Xbox Fitness, but those finished while I was playing FIFA/setting up things.

I also installed Hulu, Netflix, ESPN and NFL apps. Everything installed really fast. My surprise was that Hulu and Netflix already had my login credentials. I like the Netflix interface, it seems better than the old 360 one, although I haven't tried the new version.

I will move everything to my final location, bedroom it seems right now, and do the final setup. I haven't tested Kinect voice yet.

The little details. FIFA is a game where is harder to see the next gen, compared with the NBA game, for example, when you see them... One complain from these games, and it also applies to Madden I think, it's that the audience is lifeless. In the next gen version of FIFA you can actually see every person in the stands! Again, it's the little details. Players facial expressions and graphics are better too of course.

Amazon is also price matching those in their lightning deals. But they are slow to go.

Is eveyrone waiting to see what the MS Store does before jumping in on the 49?

re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

quick question. I have to work all day. Can I set the xbox one on standby and then have 1 or 2 games in the que to download like I do with the 360 or should I down load the update, a few small things and then try the games when im able to be home the whole time?

Well, I was able to wring another $30 out of Amazon, essentially giving me $80 off my standard version.

Apparently you can get a Day One edition from Best Buy online. It shows sold out in search results, but when you click on the item, you can add to cart and place an order.

I just went and picked up my Xbox One.........PDP Kinect mount. Seems solid. Don't have anything to hook it up to yet, though.

Nope, a QR code on a slip inside the box. You just hold it up to your kinect and it registers it.

It's on a card with a 25-digit code and a Kinect-enabled barcode.
