Yes, no problem. I still occasionally run a 360 at the same time with an Xbox One, never an issue, one full year later.


Two Xbox One's?, well good luck... constant syncing issues. Very, very, very frustrating thanks to digital only "cloud" advancements (total crap) but that's a different problem. Good luck...

No, you can run both consoles simultaneously on the same account. That was on purpose (as you cannot cross chat between One and 360 owners). I used to run both at the same time, but now I only go One. I only boot up the 360 when there's a very specific demand for a specific gaming time (i.e., friends want to play Gears of War 3 horde right now).

Take a look at Best Buy in their "deals" and then "open box" tab on their site. I have checked the inventory for local stores and have found a few xbox one controllers ranging from $31 to $41. I just picked one up yesterday for $41 brand new in the box but the box had been opened so it was marked down. Heads up though each Best Buy store does not price match each others open box discount prices.

Thank you!!!! Did not know about this. Got myself one today for $31. Right in my budget. lol.

Only thing that sucked on the best buy App, they don't let you pay for it online for in store pickup. But luckily they had one at my store. This thing is brand new. No wear or signs of usage.

Thanks again for posting this. Happy holidays !

Wow. Could this be the beginning of the end? Gotta give them credit though I thought they'd be done in years ago. I thought Best Buy would have dusted them off in no time.
Checked that list to see if the Bronx store was closing. It wasn't on that list. Whew, at least I thought until a little research on the net showed that store already closed last month. Although I haven't been in the Bronx in years still sad to see it gone. Sears saw so many stores fall by the wayside and saw others come and go.

Not my cup of tea, but I know that some users here enjoy Xbox Music...

The Pass is 50 bucks on sale today only at the Microsoft Store...

I gather that's a good deal?

That's a brand new X1 for $171 (not that both AC games are really worth $100, but still) - Wow

Very, very good deal. Thanks.


Yes, so good, I actually stopped buying physical media (CDs at least), but only for a short time


The best part I think is the instant access to very high-quality music videos, tons of them, right there along side the full albums, and completely unedited.

I was planning to dump Xbox Music and change to Google Play Music All Access because I've had problems with both the Xbox Music Win8 and Android apps, but that price is just too good. Google doesn't even have a discounted 1 year subscription; it's $10/month. A 1 year Xbox Music pass for $50 is $70 less.

The Win8 XBM app is trash, just a profoundly poor design; the Android app, while okay, won't work on my 1st gen Nexus 7. It does work fine on my phone, so I guess that's something (lately I've been using my phone for music streaming via Bluetooth to my AVR with the TV off anyway). The Zune player still works on Windows, though you cannot use it to buy music since it's still set up to use MS points as currency and they no longer exist. You can stream and download stuff on your subscription.

Not Xbox exclusive, but Best Buy has their Gamers Club Unlocked 2-year membership cards for only $30:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/my-best-...lue/9090667.p?

Would pay for itself if you buy a lot of new games and/or used games and don't mind shopping at Best Buy.

All you have to buy is 3 $60 games in two years and get 20% off and it's worth it. Plus you get bonus Reward Zone points if you're in Gamers Club. You don't get a discount on Xbox Live cards, but you still get bonus points on anything game related.

Is the 20% off in-store only, or can it be on-line orders w/ free shipping?
