So I finally broke down and picked up an xbox one. I could not resist the black friday deal at Target combined with the wifes team member discount. Anyway, I'm all set up and have been playing around the last few weeks, primarily with AC unity (bundled digital game) and the Netflix app.
Unfortunately, the reason for this post is that Ive been a little disappointed in system performance. Ive had a 360 for years but haven't really used it much in the last year. Maybe I am just not remembering correctly but the new Xbone doesnt seem much faster in most instances. Loading Netflix seems to take close to a minute, same thing with AC unity. Within the AC game loading seems to take quite a while too. For example going to training area then back to the map seems like a minute or so of black loading screen. This especially surprises me as this game is digital and loaded fully to the HD. There have been a few other things navigating around different apps that I remember thinking "huh, this seems slow" or for a while it would kinda flash the home screen for a second when switching from app to app.
Maybe I am just being picky or expecting too much? Does this sound normal? I know everything isnt going to be instantaneous, but I guess I was expecting more of an improvement over my old 360. My main concern is that I somehow got a bad unit? I mean everything else seems to work OK, just slower than I anticipated. Thoughts are appreciated.
