At this point, mine has almost assuredly either been stolen or delivered to the wrong address. I called Amazon 4 consecutive times until I got someone helpful. I'd keep giving it a shot. 3 agents told me that there was nothing I could do even though it was likely lost and I might get one in December if I called Monday.

The last agent put me on hold a few times, asked questions, ran a UPS trace, and confirmed the package was almost surely lost. They shipped me out a replacement that 'should' be here tomorrow.

Do you think it would be an asshole move to call tomorrow and ask for some additional credit or a game? I ordered the day one console on June 10th, I'm getting a standard replacement and didn't get to play on my day off. I'm going to call regardless, I'm just curious .

Yeah, that was the struggle. It's not my fault either and I don't know how to hold UPS accountable. Amazon could insure the package or require signatures for large expenses and apparently they handle all of their own UPS delivery issues internally.. I am wavering, but I've got way too much time to kill right now and I'm getting jealous of all the videos of DR and Madden.

None of mine have the Day One banner.

so this thing about not outputting DD is sort of obnoxious. Anytime i have a device outputting PCM the volume is usually much lower. I have to crank up the volume, then i forget and when I switch, it is blaring.

Just got my Forza 5 Limited Edition from Amazon. Pretty steelbook, but just a cardboard slipcover (Forza 4 LE has some sort of plastic slipcover). Can't wait to try it out tonight!

I was reading about that. I currently have a PS3 and 360 going through a receiver via HDMI, and it always plays in 5.1 DD.

According to what I read, I'll still get DD with the One, because I'm using HDMI and not optical? Is that right? I know they said it'd all be patched anyway sometime soon.

I only see PCM when I am listening to music on the Directv music channels since I leave it on the true sound and don't use any fake audio boosting modes.

I know that the PS4 defaulted to PCM for me. I switched it to DTS.

Yeah, you can set DTS to be the default for both HDMI and Optical out in the settings. (In addition to 5.1 & 7.1 uncompressed)

Just finished installing Dead Rising 3. 51 minutes for 100% installation, and it took over 10 minutes to move off 0% at the beginning. I'm assuming most of that time was due to the 659MB update the system told me it needed before it started. It's going to take a while to get used to not seeing any more details when it comes to files, installation, etc.

Is there a standby mode? I had to leave for work in the middle of downloading FIFA and turned it off so I'm sure it paused it or screwed up. I liked that ability within the 360. Do we have it in the one? Should I just leave it on? I'm not running it through my cable box...still deciding about that

I think you need to go into the settings menu, then find "power & something or other." In there, you can enable standby, I think.

I never even knew the 360 had a standby mode. I thought that was something new to current gen.

Mine still hasn't arrived. I guess it's not a big deal since I'll have to wait for the update anyway.

I'm not sure if anyone has already mentioned it or even noticed, but the Day One Controller's d-pad looks shinier (like chrome) than the standard controller's d-pad. Still, I'd kill for the white controller. Not even the white console... just the controller.

The white controller and console (or some variation of them) is inevitable down the line at some point.

They Migrate, because there are 9 people on my friends list on live, and 8 of them are playing X box one.
