I pre-ordered Sunset Overdrive recently to save $15 on Halo MCC. I don't think I could wait one extra day for either game.


Regarding Fantasia, yeah, great reviews. Impressive. Please let us know.
I'm sold and it's Harmonix so why waste time, even at full price.
I didn't read the product page for Fantasia closely. It doesn't say arrives on release day like the other titles. But the Sunset console does say arrives on release date.

Cool, that makes sense. Come to think of it, I don't remember seeing Fantasia at Best Buy today. Physical copies may have simply been delayed.


Enjoy the new console!

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.

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.

Played some of the demo for Fantasia yesterday, and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised and had fun with it. It's also getting good reviews across the board.

Quick question. Me and my buddy think another buddy of ours is pulling a fast one on us about his apparently broken XB1.

Has anyone ever heard of MS giving a voucher to go to a store to swap out a defective console for a new one? I was under the impression that no matter what it would have to sent in but our buddy (who is known to be less than truthful) keeps telling us he was given a voucher and just needs to find time to go somewhere to get his replacement.

I searched the web and did not see anything but wanted to check with you guys.

I'm not sure what is worse, your buddy feeling the need to lie about a broken videogame console or you feeling the need to research and seek out whether or not he's telling the truth.

What makes this a "fast-one" he's trying to pull? Why? What motive?

Maybe he's finally getting laid and doesn't want you guys ragging on him for not spending 7 hours on his Xbox every night.

I am not really sure why that matters...I am just looking for a simple answer.

If you must know though it's the fact that the he owes me and other people money and I think he sold this off to pay a debt (not mine ) and since the console is not in his possession anymore and when he was asked about it and he gave us some BS story about this voucher and how he just hasn't had time to go pick it up yet.

Since he is known to be a liar I am just trying to see if this is legitimate or if he is just pulling his **** again and making it seem like he is more special than anyone else. I guess I am getting sick of the lies and I am seeing if this is another one of them.

This is the same guy who claims he can return opened new releases to Game Stop for full credit because he knows the guys good since he is in there all the time and they hook him up (this I think is a complete lie).

Super Smash Bros. even


Good times!
Yep, wait all year for the games, then they all drop in the same 3 months! I've got Evil Within and barely started playing it and haven't even opened Alien Isolation yet! Horizon2 is demanding play time is well, but I had to finish Dragon Age 2 before Inquisition hits!

Must Have list:

GTAV
Asscreed
Far Cry 4
Dragon Age Inquisition
The Crew
Call of Duty - Advanced Warfare (I know, the series is tired but I have to play it!)
Ori and the Blind Forest

Not expecting Sunset OD to be my type of game but we'll see..

Luckily (or unluckily?) Project Cars got delayed until March 2015. So that frees up a slot.

Yup, I'll be broke. Don't even know when I'm going to find time to play all these. Wifey won't be happier either.

I would assume if MS is going to replace the system they would mail him one directly. I know when my old 360s went RROD MS replaced them by sending me refurbed or replaced units right to the house. MS doesn't want you going back to the retailer and neither does the retailer. Only exception would be if he bought one of those replacement plans that the brick and mortar places push on you.

Anyone else having GPU issues? More specifically, red lines appearing on the dashboard screen (and sometimes during games)? It all started after the August/September update. I contacted MS support and after running thru various tests and power cycles, they had me restore system defaults which fixed the problem but erased everything on my console. I had to reinstall everything. Now 2 months later, the red lines are coming back! Arrgghhh. My console is a "Day One" Xbox One so I have about a month left of warranty to have them fix or replace. I've been told by a couple people it could be related to the GPU going defective? FWIW, my X1 is on it's own shelf with plenty of ventilation and air flow, so shouldn't be an overheating issue.

Anyone else heard of this "red line" issue? Thoughts or advice? Thanks in advance.

I admit I didn't see all that drama coming, I honestly tried to envision what possible scenario any of my friends would have to make them lie to me about a broken video game console. Getting a new girlfriend was all that could come to mind. It's that way because long ago I learned to leave people like your "friend" out of my life. I grew up poor and in a shady family full of people like you describe. Once you shed that weight you no longer think in terms of such assumption or suspicisions. Consider your money lost and move on. Not that you asked my opinion though.

I think you got your answer on the console.
