No problems with my Day One controller on battery life with rechargable batteries. Though I did have an issue after a firmware update where the left stick was stuck going up after the update. I gave it until the next firmware update and that did not correct the problem. Contacted MS and sent the Day one controller back and got a new replacement Day one controller back.

I get reasonable battery life from my Day One controller using Eneloop rechargeables.

I'll find out soon. I'd been using standard AAs since I got the console but decided to finally spring for the play and charge kit. The current AAs are about to die, so I should finally get to the rechargeable by this weekend. I'll report back if I have a problem in my Day One controller.

I don't know, the sheer convenience of charging the controller just by plugging in USB instead of having to swap out batteries is a pretty big plus there. I use Eneloops for other things, but am very happy with the play and charge kit for the One.

I got a couple of the Nyko charging stations. You put the batter in once, then you just place it on the charging station and never need to remove the battery. Since you can't quickly remove the batteries like you could with the 360 controller I decided to try the Nyko charging station and am glad I did. I picked up a second one for my second XBOne since it worked so well.(that was also cheaper than just buying two more batteries directly from Nyko.

Anti-aliasing . It's a function of the video card and how the game was coded.

Same...I can play for 4-5 nights at about 3-4 hour stretches on one set...swap 'em out and keep on going. (Or is that Energizer?)

I don't find it to be that difficult to change the batteries in the Xbox One controller. Of course, I never play twitch multiplayer shooters where having a dead controller for a minute or two would be disastrous. .

Just takes a sec to swap to a second controller that already has fresh batteries in it.

But it still takes many times longer than it did with the 360 controller rechargeable batteries. SInce the design was different with the XBOne controller I didn't want to go the route were I would need to have to remove the batteries every time.

I've been using my PS4 a lot lately with a rental of the Second Sun game and with the Destiny Alpha earlier. The PS4 controller doesn't come anywhere close to the battery life I get from the Nyko rechargeable batteries in my XBOne controllers. It's kind of a pain how often I need to switch PS4 controllers while the XBOne controller will last several times as long.

The XBOne controller battery life is certainly one thing that MS got right this generation. There is just no comparison between the two.

On the developer side the Xbox team has unlocked the ability to do trials for games similar to how they worked on 360.

Microsoft has recently updated the console with the same game trial functionality found on Xbox 360 - where you can download an Xbox Live Arcade title as a free demo and then pay to unlock the full version without downloading the game again. It's not something any available games currently make use of, but future titles are free to.

Wait, they didn't have that already built? No wonder we no longer get demos of "arcade" releases.
