What I recieved in email today:



Dear REDHEMI300C,

This week, we kicked off 2015 with the February system update preview, but now we wanted to take a minute to say thanks for an amazing 2014. We've worked hard to make Xbox One the best place to play, and we couldn't have done it without your help!

Let's take a look back and celebrate everything you did last year in the preview program:

6,140,355 Preview points earned on the My stats leaderboards.
360,951 quests completed.
22,723 posts in the Xbox.com Preview forums.
1,915 Preview points earned by The Wee Bear - the leader on the global My stats leaderboards!
9 Preview update waves in 2014.

Here are just a few of the many important pieces of feedback you gave us:

In the June update preview, eagle-eyed growndhog was there to tell us about some errors that happened after moving games to a new hard drive. Fixed!
July brought reports of several users noticing that controllers weren't turning off automatically with the console, led by CyReN CE. Fixed!
In August, FnormONE sounded the alarm that the new activity feed wasn't automatically updating, and that sometimes he'd get a black screen when he opened the Friends app. Fixed!
September showed us how much you love watching TV on Xbox One, and you filled us in about crackling and popping sounds (first reported by BIGROOT) and motion jitter (noticed first by Ghryphon). Fixed and fixed!
While checking out the October preview, GboroPirate let us know that Home was really dim after startup. Fixed!
November was where you got creative with backgrounds, but some of you (like djfreek) also noticed that some tiles were missing on Home after changing your background. Fixed!

Thanks again - we're floored by the dedication you've shown to helping make Xbox One a continually-improving platform. You've earned a special place in the history of Xbox One. Here's to a great 2015!

And they still can't fix the borked audio when the surround audio erroneously comes out of the rear surrounds.

Since game audio and BD audio is mapped correctly I just don't understand why they can't fix it so surround audio is correctly mapped from the apps and HDMI input.

Beats me. There used to be an option in the Preview Dashboard app to invite someone but either it disappeared the last time I looked or I tried it a couple of times and the people I invited never got the invite from MS. (From time to time some modifications are to friends-related features and if no one on your friends list was in the program you couldn't test them). They may feel that they have enough participants and you'll have to wait until the next time that they start letting people in. I got in when they started it because they sent me email.

I see they are supposed to drop the XBOne down to a promotional price of $349 starting tomorrow.

In the Preview app there's a section to invite Friends. PM me your Gamertag, I'll add you and send an invite to see if it still works.

Good luck. Last time I tried it, it failed. (It took the request but my invitees never got anything back from MS). It's possible that it was broken at the time.

Yeah, I don't think they're accepting new people to the preview. One of my Xbox One's has the preview dashboard. I tried to invite my other Xbox One to get it and never got a response. Other people have tried to invite me. I tried to download the dashboard to both consoles. No luck.

I believe if you redownload the preview app on your other xbox it will add that xbox on the preview program.

One of the greatest posts I have read

I never got the Preview invite after the last round...JudgeSmails was kind enough to add me to the invite list. MS never sent the email.

Anyone else watching the windows 10 stream? The gaming part should be coming up soon, hopefully they'll finally start talking about all those things I've been talkiing about for like years now.

Oh yeah, and Win 10 will be free for everyone running 7 or 8, so I'd say they're off to a pretty good start.

Think there might be some "fine print" associated with that.

"Microsoft has just announced the first pricing information for Windows 10 at its preview event today. The biggest news is that the new OS will be completely free for current Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 users for its first year of availability—after that time period has expired, OS upgrades will presumably need to be paid for as they are currently (though Microsoft was less than clear on this point, it made no mention of a paid, Office 365-style subscription for Windows upgrades). The Windows 10 upgrade for Windows Phone 8.1 users will also be free."

http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/...or-first-year/


Would not be surprised if the go with some sorta subscription model.

My EXACT same thought. I was taken aback when he says "these are all my Steam games..."

Help me with why this is good. I mean cool feature but how can it be used to benefit in practice? Basically someone can watch what you're playing on your TV on a tablet in the house? Sorry I'm a little confused.

So like if your Xbox is in your living room, and your laptop is in the bedroom, you could play there instead.

You could also buy one of those $100 mini PCs and use that as an xbox extender.

does this mean they will sell a wireless adapter for the XB1 controller to pc?

when I move in a few months I was considering buying a powered HDMI splitter and sending a run over cat6 to another tv. id need to use a USB extension though to plug in my One controller.
