I've been trying to send invites to friends or family for months now, the feature is still there, but MS is not sending them on. Sorry.

Got the preview update. So is backgrounds limited to Achievement Art? If so, that is kind of lame. Also seemed like a PITA to set a background.

They say that a future update to the Media Player app will enable photos to be chosen from that as well.

Apparently there's a new free game "Voice Commander" available.

It's been put out as part of Microsoft's "Garage" internal initiative, so it's probably pretty simplistic, but still:



Quote:
Game description:Voice Commander, a Microsoft Garage project, is a fast paced, space themed, RTS and top-down shooter combo. Pick up a controller and work with Vox using voice commands to try to stop relentless attacks. Voice Commander can be played with up to eight controllers, and anyone in the room can issue voice commands. Microsoft Garage turns fresh ideas into real projects. Learn more at microsoft.com/garage

My son has an Xbox 360 and I am planning on getting him the Xbox One this Christmas but at the same time he has mentioned the PS4. Which console would be the better one and which one has a faster processor? I told him to maybe go for PS4 since we have never owned any PS before.

Currently the PS4 outperforms the Xbox ONE. I still say get the system that has the GAMES you want to play. I enjoy my XBOX ONE and Microsoft says their new DirectX api will improve performance.

Between the two consoles its a toss up right now. Xbox is miles ahead on media and anything non-game related, the games look decent, but the library is smaller than the PS4's due to a lack of indie game support. The PS4 is a little more powerful, so if the two versions are going to look different, the ps4 one will look a little better. About half the time they're exactly the same.

If your primary concern is processing speed and graphics though, you should be looking at gaming PCs instead. If I didn't have a gaming PC or cared about graphics, I'd prob buy an Xbox.

does anyone ever experience a temporary slowdown in motion when watch BD movies at 1080/24p? Also, occasional very brief cutouts in audio or a static click or pop noise (very short length)?

Yep. PC's are where it's at for graphics- not consoles. I plan on picking up an Xbox One, but I'm so addicted to World of Tanks right now that I'm not interested in anything else.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a...

Fantasia comes with 3 QR codes for 3 songs... OMG, I love "Xbox, Use a Code". It's so fast. As soon as you raise the card, it takes the picture and bam, it's in your account. However, I personally think you should stay at the "use a code" screen rather than sending you back to the home screen. I know most of the time, people are usually only entering 1 code so it makes sense to put you back at the home screen. But in my case, I had 3 codes so I had to say "Xbox, use a code" 3 times to do all 3 codes.
