You know, I didn't even look at the originals but I went back and checked the dog in the tank originals and think you're right. I didn't see much difference between the PS4 and XO pics and nothing like that GIF makes it look.

Unless you're buying all 22 launch titles I don't think that'll be too much of an issue really. Same for the PS4, why upgrade the HDD now unless you're a super gamer and plan on all of it's launch titles as well?

Even with the day one patch and an average game download size of 20Gb (very rough) , the Xbox One drive as it is will fit at least 20 full games, I don't even play that many games in two years so as long as I know down the line I can add additional storage for other games and media, I'm content.

I'm downloading both now so I am covered.

The directions specify how you know which to use...it's by the os currently installed on the system. Apparently there are already 2 different operating system versions out there on customer units.

OK. Cancel that. I continue to get errors and the files will not download. Anybody else experiencing a similar issue?

"This download was interrupted" is the message I am getting. Looks as though microsoft posted but doesn't want the files to be downloaded yet.

I would think they'd want to let it out so there would be less stress on launch day.

I wonder what the power consumption goes down to when kinect isn't hooked up, or the power on by voice feature is disabled.

It's the power-on-by-voice standby mode that eats 15.4W; when that's disabled it uses .2W while waiting for an IR command or button push to turn it on.

Yeah...I finally downloaded both files after resuming each about 10 times. Hopefully I will not need to use them. Looking forward to tomorrow.

It depends on how "automatic you want it? If your wife says Xbox On, and Kinect automatically signs her into her profile then it is pretty close to automatic. All she has to do is pin only tv stuff to the Xbox One so that is all she will see. Also the Xbox will remember the last thing she was playing so if she does is watch tv then that will be all that is there.

That actually works with PS3 DD pre-orders. They release at midnight on the east coast and can be downloaded and played at 9 PM on the west coast.

Just wanted to say that everyone here is great and this forum kicks ass. Saved a lot of time & potential frustration on "Day One"...

  1. Day One update patch files downloaded (just in case)
  2. Logitech Harmony Remote updated
  3. Surround Sound pass-through (Beta) enablement instructions ready
  4. Xbox One SmartGlass Apps downloaded to phone and tablet

Thanks! Now we just need the damn console!
