So now that it's out, how does the DRM on games actually work?

You don't need to be online to play single-player games of a disc, do you?

Also, how's the blu-ray player on this thing, or are they so ubiquitous now that it's not even a thing?

It does, but actually LOADING those games takes much much longer. Each app (and game) has a pretty intro screen like you see in this video while stuff loads.

Likewise.

My Xbox is out for delivery. UPS will usually get here around 2:00 or so, but I have had them deliver as late as 7:00 a couple of times. The UPS guy always rings the bell once and sets the package down by the door and leaves.

I mean I live in a great neighborhood, so I'm not worried about theft, it'd just be nice if he waited a minute for me to answer the door

Lies. Credible sources have confirmed that the postman always rings twice.

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

Hey so what games is everyone getting?

I got Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5 this morning at Wal-Mart for $49 each. I got NBA 2k14, Assassin's Creed IV, and Ghosts at TRU through their buy 3 get $50 promo. I had $100 in gift cards, so it was about $90 after that.

I plan on using the $50 gift card I got from the promo for Lego Marvel. After that, I may get Need For Speed and Ryse but I'm on the fence.

I wouldn't know, as Kevin Costner has never been to my house.

But I said the UPS guy, not the postman

So far, Killer Instinct, Xbox Fitness, Ghosts, and NFS. The last two will take up the majority of my time, to be sure. I'll pick up Ryse when I start to get bored of those.

Nope. It just showed up the next day before a replacement was sent. Annoying.

No worries.

I have Cod Ghosts and DR3 so far. I plan to pickup Kinect Sports around Xmas. I would have jumped all over Madden 25 at $49 but missed it (probably just as well).

I just noticed that my copies of Dead Rising & Forza don't have the Day One Edition banner. I just purchased them from Best Buy a couple of hours ago.

So do we have to re-add friends like the PS4 required or will they migrate from our 360's?

I had preordered and in-store pickup at midnight and mine does not have it either.

The day one bonus items are available in the store for the game.

Whatever happened to the days when delivery people actually attempted to deliver stuff? If seems like it is common practice now to either just leave the package on your doorstep or leave a note saying no one was home, even though you didn't bother knocking to see if they were.

I never had to re-add friends on the PS4. Or do you mean friends who don't have PS4's don't get imported? I never noticed if those are still on my list or not.

So, yeah. It's noon - and I still haven't seen my system move out of the "Shipping now" phase. Support is less than helpful - saying a carrier hasn't been selected yet. Order date: Mon, Jun 10, 2013 at 11:30 AM

When I set up my Xbox profile a zillion years ago, I used my initials ("C.A."). That's what Kinect continues to identify me as. I want to change it to Adam. Where do I go to do this? I've tried every screen I can find on live.xbox.com and in the Xbox One dashboards, and I don't see nothin'.
