Polygon hates Sony and loves MS, I thought that was known. Geiss is their review editor and has been trolling the PS4 and supporting the XB1 on Twitter for months. MS also gave them $750k for a project, money well spent, their loyalty is clear.

I keep hearing this mentioned, but I have no idea what this is about.  Last I heard they were financed by an independent company, that ran some sort of sports network.  Link?

They are. People look for anything to justify their opinion. Polygon ran a series of videos that were sponsored by IE. This where this stupid story comes from. It ignores the fact that there have been Sony ads plastered all over the site for months. Since this is an Xbox One thread I think topic should probably be dropped.

Does anyone have the XBOne controllers for sale yet? Today I received the Nyko Xbox One Charge Station that can charge two controllers at once. But I have no way to test it out since I don't have an XBOne controller yet. I have credit at Gamestop and BestBuy, but Gamestop shows the controllers being available in December and BestBuy shows them being available on the XBOne launch day.

would it not work if you simply plug the cable box into the xbox and the xbox to the receiver and the receiver to the tv?

As for your second question, I've read the IR blaster is strong enough as long as it's in the same room and has walls to bounce off.


Wouldn't it work if you simply plug the cable box into the xbox then the xbox into the receiver then the receiver to the tv?
that way you select the xbox input on the receiver which gives you cable at the same time.
am I wrong?

That's what I was thinking regarding utilizing a receiver...but we will see.

The only issues I see are power-always on, lag-possible delay, and I guess that's it.

Can't wAit to find out for sure.

Polygon does not have an agenda. Polygon is made up of the good guys that left Kotaku, Joystiq, etc. to form a new company. It's like the Engadget guys who left to form The Verge. If you read the Polygon articles, the quality is top notch. Check their backgrounds. They pretty much all have journalism degrees and have been in the business for a very long time. These are not your typical bloggers.

Personally, my favorite write is Brian Crecente. He was the head guy at Kotaku before he left. In fact, Crecente and crew built up the reputation for Kotaku. He since has been replaced by the schmuck, Stephen Totilo, who is tearing down Kotaku and making it a typical Gawker site that depends on flaming titles for click bait.

And wasn't Arthur Geiss the guy that Sony fans were propping up just a few days ago when he was used as the mantle piece on CoD being 720P?

My impression is that they're stand up guys as well.

Lol I remember back when he was still with kotaku, and mw3 came out. I had an early copy so the player base was basically all pirates and journos, and I could tell by the names that I got matched up against the whole kotaku crew. Was pretty funny mopping the floor with them while shouting "kotakuuuuuu!" through my headset.

I just found out about polygon since researching next gen articles.

I have no idea who is paid what...advertisement $$$ rules!

Either way I like their reviews thus far.

And their ps4 review seems legit to me. I only played demos but hate the controller and ui still looks horrible after watching review videos now.

I would imagine standby as that is how the system is designed to be used. That is how mine will be used anyway.

He used "Xbox On" to start it; I suspect that there's only one standby state in which that works. Not bad; 13.6 secs by my stopwatch, versus 27.4 secs for my Xbox Slim with Kinect enabled and 23.3 for my launch model PS3.

I do not think this has a been confirmed by Microsoft but it looks like all games will get 1000 gamerscore for achievements it doesn't matter if the game would have fallen in the Arcade generation last generation.

No, it is not. That fact was my only gripe with the system until it was announced that MP3/CD/DLNA support was not going to be added. Not it looks like they will add MP3 and DLNA support with a later update (CD's are still up in the air) and GAIKAI streaming takes care of the backward compatibility. If GAIKAI works the way sony has hinted at (like streaming Netflix) it could be the greatest thing to hit console gaming.....like, EVER.

I wonder if there will be a price for that? I'll be curious to see how it all works to tell the truth.

Nah.. was a totally different story when the PS3 launched. I stood in line for the PS3 at ToyRus in Paramus, NJ all night long and didnt even get one. They only received like 4 units and I was the 10th person in line. Did end up getting a Wii though, they had about 20 of those. Eventually sold it.
My first PS3 was not a launch unit. It was the $499 40GB MGS4 edition from Best Buy. Sold that for a pretty big profit when the $299 PS3 slim was announced. Still have my PS3 slim!

Appears I'm having the same luck with my PS4 launch order, as I did with my Xbox360 launch order. They both arrived a day before the official launch.
So what lesson have I learned?

Dont stand in line waiting for a console on launch day. You will freeze to death and get disappointed.
Do preorder a console, as soon as its available from Amazon. You will get it a day earlier than the launch date. Hope I have the same luck with the XB1 coming next week!! smile.gif

Unless you live in Florida, then it's tolerable waiting in line. No guarantee of a console though.

Xbox one uses Bluray. Not sure if Xbone is backwards comp. As for DL games, its also if they are comptiable.

Obviously no one has access to the console yet unless you're one of the few that got the consoles from the target mix-up... but anyone know which Logitech Harmony universal remote will be best compatible with the xbox one console? im looking to consolidate my remotes for my projector, receiver, set-top box, blu-ray player etc.. and was thinking about picking one up during black friday/cyber monday sales online.. currently looking into the logitech harmony touch..

thanks!
