Yeah option, I saw it listed under providers as "antenna" in one of the demo videos (the GameStop live feed I believe). When they have the production guy go over the tv functions.

Love the preview window on the home screen. Like having a second live desktop



The TV guide is sweet. And it controls both the tv and cable
box thru hdmi. No IR blaster needed.

Maybe the Free Fall map being apart of that? I don't think that is the only cause for the extra GB.

Nah, free fall is only like 500mb. I mean that's like a 30% discrepancy, gotta be a better reason for it.

I think I'm starting to realize that my ideal console is a PC with a $500 video card running the Xbox one interface, controlled with a dual shock 4.

Can redeem codes using the kinect camera. And it's crazy fast. Recognize the code so fast I barely had a chance take a picture of it.

What in hell would that mean? Sound like you have the option to hook an antenna directly to the console and tune television with it.

Nope the freefall map is a separate download. I believe it's an extra 343.9 MB download in addition to the 34GB game.

Gotcha. I went ahead and purchased a copy of Ghost tonight and redeemed my code. It is ready to download as soon as my One is online.

The voice commands thru Kinect are absolutely amazing. My girlfriend has already ran into the room a few times to shout "Xbox Off". And I've had to say no after that. Its absolutely amazing in execution.
I can change channels, control the guide, go to a specific channel "Watch ESPN, Watch TNT, Watch HBO". You can also open apps, mute the tv, control the volume, control the dashboard, answer questions (yes, no, next, cancel, go, etc.)

This truly feels like the "next" generation.


Dont get me wrong. The PS4 is pretty, its fast and interface is fairly simply menus and submenus. But it feels like an upgraded PS3.

Where as the XB1 feels like something out the future. And I still havent gotten thru half the features yet. I completely agree with the Tom's Hardware review which pretty much stated the same. The two consoles are completely different experiences.

Do you have to say things like Discovery Channel "HD",  how does it discern from SD to HD channels?  to you have to be specific?  I know on my Smart TV I have to be real specific.

I saw in some setup video that you can filter out SD channels when there's an HD equivalent.

You can hide the SD Channels on the DirecTV so there is only the HD ones showing.

Mine is showing that it was picked up in Vernon, CA at around 1 PM today. Vernon is an LA suburb/industrial park about 130 miles north of UPS' local center in El Cajon. Amazon smartly shipped UPS ground from there which will always get here overnight. If I know that something's coming from LA I always choose overnight; if I choose to pay extra for 2-day it'll get here overnight an they'll hold it until the next day rolleyes.gif.

I'm still not showing a pickup for my BestBuy order. Even though I received a text that is was shipped and to expect delivery tomorrow evening. Hopefully something will change otherwise I need to get a credit from BestBuy for screwing up the shipping.

How many people were in line?

I finally see some movement on my XBOne with UPS. Now I just need to hope that they drop it off tomorrow instead of leaving a door tag.

For those like me who hadn't pre-ordered one yet, Microsoft just started taking pre-orders again. I pre-ordered mine 2 minutes ago.

Probably 50 in front of me in the pre-order line. Not sure how many in the non-pre-order line. Missed out on getting a green Xbox One t-shirt by just a couple of people. But very well organized, the lines were inside the store, not sure what time they opened the doors.

My wife played Battlefield 4 all day on the Xbox One and gives it a big thumbs up. I was also impressed with the out-of-box experience as I set it up this morning. Coincidentally, my PS4 arrived in the same shipment, so I set them up side-by-side. Since the Xbone was totally occupied, I spent the day on the PS4 with Assassin's Creed, also a solid experience.

So at our house, our first NextGen day was a big success.

You're probably good with 24 bit. the 36 bit is Deep Color and I don't think there are many ( if any) TVs that support that at present.

Update:Aaron sets this right below. Go with 36. Thx, Aaron.

Well, I think the out of box experience (for the Day One edition, at least) is superior to the PS4, but they're both very slick consoles. On the Xbone, the software update went very fast and very smoothly, although things might be different tonight and tomorrow when all the other Day One buyers hit those servers. It appears to me that MS truly applied their 360 experiences, even on the very small level, and improved the Xbone. Little things like the login, and the controller connection, and so on, are just more polished and more convenient.

I did hit one glitch when trying to setup network access. Initially, I just transferred the cable from a 360 to the Xbone etnernet. It started the update download and then I accidentally interrupted it while setting up the PS4. Then I had a tough time getting the Xbone back online. I finally swapped out to another Ethernet cable (although the first one had been working fine) and the Xbone liked that one. Following that brief frustration, the Xbox One performed valiantly for several hours straight.

Although my wife didn't allow me any gaming time on the Xbox One today (which was fine. It's her Christmas present...), my kneejerk impression is that the Xbox feels a bit more innovative than the PS4, but that's an extremely shallow first impression. Overall, though, I'm glad that I chose NOT to choose this generation and popped for both boxes during Week One.

I'm at a so cal BB and the turnout is super WEAK! I'm counting 10 people outside. Employees claimed over 100 waited for PS4. Weak turnout and they sold out of RHYSE. Easy but dumb system. Go in. Pick accessories and games. Pay for everything. Then walk out with accessories and games and have to return after 12 for system. BUT they matched Wal marts $49 price starting tomorrow so overall I'm happy. Left here with bf4, forza, and dr3. Already have madden. FIFA. And nba2k from target. So I'm loaded and ready to rock!

It's been a crazy fun couple of weeks! I'm loving this as I have a PS4 for now but I know I will end up with a One as well (have both a 360 and PS3) so I love hearing all the great experiences!

One question for now: I've read that the One is very quiet in general. How does it sound when reading a game disc? Does it spin up loudly (like my PS4)?
