I don't know. The way I read it made me think that once you had a hard copy you could go to the bone live store, pay $10 and have the digital license. I guess wishful thinking.

Yeah...ultimately I think I will be selling or trading Forza and BF4 because I know they are games that will be played to death. The rest I am not so worried about at this moment.

Home from work and now the wait begins for the System and games to be delivered from Amazon. UPS said they were out for delivery at 4:30 am. If they deliver same time like they did for the last package I should hopefully have it around 11:30am or so. Gives me time to catch up on American Horror Story (this weeks) and then take a nap on the catch and hope for a late morning door bell ring!

Dude - Really you should read up. If there are any games you are a hardcore fan of already download them now. Return the hard copies!

...just my two cents

No, you're going to be paying full price for the digital copy. $60.

Amazon still shows mine as shipping soon, and I paid for one day shipping. They said I may get it today or tomorrow, but my UPS is closed tomorrow. So it looks like I'll be waiting to get it until Monday.

My UPS usually arrives between 2-3pm. They showed up just before 10am this morning! Maybe an extra truck to deliver the excess of packages today?

AMAZON - Interesting

They offer a PS3 digital copy of BF4 but not for anything else.

I wonder how long it will be until retailers can sell digital copies. This would be great because we would then see some better deals.

My question was more along the lines of the kinect being able to talk to the generic IR receiver on my computer so that I could change channels via voice.

LOL @ this Forza 5 review on amazon

Quote:
I love fast cars, but not so much fast women like your mom or little sister. Thus, I highly recommend Forza Motorsport 5 because it puts your caboose in the driver’s seat of some of the fastest cars that mankind has ever built. If you are one of those environmentalists who enjoys taking public transit because you believe in Al Gore’s carbon footprint salesmanship, then at least you can enjoy the speed in this virtual setting.

This game boasts the greatest selection of the fastest and coolest racing cars ever made. You get to choose from the Toyota Prius, the Toyota Tercel, the Honda Accord Special 1987 Edition, the Peugot Escargot, the Citroen Ooo La La, the Toyota Previa, the AMC Pacer and, everyone’s favorite, the Datsun Hatchback With Manual Shift and Broken Taillights.

Plus, you also get to race them in various settings, such as the mall parking lot, the racetrack at your local high school and even the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest (where no one finds dead bodies, ever) in liberal states like Washington.

This game has it all and then some. You’d be nuts—almost as nutty as Obama for thinking he could lie to the American people constantly about Obamacare—to pass this video game up.

Local Redbox had nice selection of games and I rented Battlefield 4 (will be getting it for Christmas), but will be putting in my copy of Ghosts first after I get it set up to make sure I didn't get one of those disc-shredding drives! eek.gif

Gamestop and the Microsoft Store (and I think others) already sell digital copies. You buy a card with the code.

I would return BF4 for the digital copy but I remembered I brought it through a GS trade in. I only paid $3 for it. Since GS doesn't sell digital copies I would ahve to pay full price for it on live.

With that said- EVERY SINGLE GAME IS DOWNLOADED on hard drive. I know I have read about this for weeks but for some reason I never comprehended this fact completely.

So even though you have downloaded an entire game from a disc the disc still has to be in the drive to play, which means the only instant function for that game is the game in the disc drive.

MY ADVICE - Only download games that you know are going to see serious playing time. I wish I downloaded BF4 and Forza. The rest...whatever probably will trade them in anyway.

Na, until MS gets some bigger incentives for Downloads (reduced prices, or better perks for the downloads) I'll stick with the discs for now. One thing that can sway me is if on the downloads they release at midnight and I can play at 9 PM on Monday night like I can with steam games then I'll think it over. Besides downloading the games I still would think take longer then install from disc even with the ability to play before it is all downloaded. I have 4 games coming plus Killer Instinct (Ultimate edition) to download today. All of that on a download would take way to long over my 12 meg ADSL connection.

Yes which is another reason I don;t want to run a primary device through my XBOne.

UPS is still showing "out for delivery" for my unit.

Wait a second. I though if you bought the disc, it installed on the hard drive and you did not need the disc anymore. This is not true anymore? Damn. I didnt want to have to use discs. I only bought battlefield because it was on sale at target.

I have read many of the same thoughts but I never fully comprehended this concept until I started using the system.

There has to be a way that even though people buy a disc game from a retailer and the user wants to sell, they can remove the license from the system and the customer can sell or trade or give their game away.

The only reason I bought 6 games was because of the deals I was getting. Now I totally REGRET opening 3 last night. I think the 3 I ended up getting with target deal will be put on ebay.

Now I understand why retailers are selling games cheaper than I ever remembered at launch...they are effectively being pushed out of the gaming business.

Unless Microsoft finds a way for a retailer...which I don't think they want to even try to....to sell digital copies then I think they will be done soon enough.

I know amazon does this with live and such...but not games right?

They had a solution for this but alot of people balked at it and got in an uproar. Which is why we have the same system as before.

Even though Digital Download is more expensive I decided to go with it and avoid using discs(except rentals) because the experience will be immensely better without using discs. I will just not buy as many games since the cost per game is going to be higher.

Amazon uses a bunch of delivery companies. At least with USPS you can receive it tomorrow. If they had used UPS you would be waiting until Monday.

I've had multiple items, from the same Amazon order, ship by multiple carriers.

The concession they had to make because people didn't want the licensing model that Microsoft first announced, is that you now need to have the disc you want to play in the console at all times in order to authenticate that you own the game, even though it's playing off the hard drive. (This is similar to how the 360 works now if you choose to install a game to the HDD, but the difference here is that installs are mandatory now).

I will be waiting until Monday it seems. UPS has the shipment in town but it came in after 6am. Anything that comes in after 6am doesn't get shipped to businesses that day but the next business day instead...which is Monday. There were a lot of us quite pissed off and in the cold early this morning at Walmart thinking we were getting our xbox's. Turns out that UPS is a bunch or lazy pricks...imagine. I actually know the jerks that work there so I'm not talking about UPS is general, just local. I'd be willing to bet if I went to the warehouse, 5mins from house, they would be sitting around doing anything but working.

Picked up my xbone last night.

Played around with it a bit before I had to go to bed for work. Can anybody tell me where can I see my battery's current charge? I can not find it anywhere. I tried pressing the xbox button, looked in settings etc etc..

Also, where do I see how many GB's I have left. Was much easier to see on the 360. I went to settings and I did not see any option to see my current HDD"s space.

And on my TV, I have my hdmi black level at normal, should I put the RGB at FULL? If i put it at limited, it looks washed out.

thanks !

This is why the thoughtless hysteria was so frustrating. Microsoft screwed up on not drawing a straight line from Always Online to Game Library, Family Share and DD Trading. And then flinching to the mystifying stupidity of the internet screaming about having to be on the internet ... was well, stupid.

Reviews are saying how XO has a real next-gen feel. I can only imagine how much more enthusiastic they would have been if Microsoft would have followed their vision. I hope they add back the features in future updates.

Yes thanks people for ruining things. They had it right the first time and I really wish they had not balked in this. I forgot about all the things we lost. I loved the idea of family sharing etc. I REALLY hope they bring it back. This will cost everyone more in the long run, as we cant take advantage of deals I guess since that means discs.
