I noticed that Cox Gigablast price is the same as Ultimate, but requires a $100 installation, no doubt to run the fiber into your home. Since I rent rooms in homes I'll probably never have that. But I could get the 300/30 Ultimate.

$100 is not enough to actually run fiber to a location.

It's what one article claimed was the installation fee. Someone else cited it as being $300. In another location it was free in a promotion with a promotional monthly rate of $79. It has extremely limited availability. I read somewhere that they may at some point be offering gigabit speeds via DOCSIS 3.1 modems. Hopefully that happens.

Damn, and I thought my 100/30 was fast. They haven't upgraded here in years though so it's overdue. 100MB a sec though....id just sell all my hard drives, keep a few SSDs and use cloud storage with that kind of bandwidth.

Not trying to be a kill-joy or thread police, but it should probably be pointed out that the last 25 posts have little to nothing to do with Xbox One.

And yes, I'm guilty by participating, so....

Just FYI, Gigablast is only FTTH at this time. Cox will begin testing DOCSIS 3.1 upgrades this year and will expand Gigablast service into those areas. The first 3.1 modem design from Arris/Motorola is now available and in limited testing with all cable ISPs, who are testing the provider version, while the consumer version will be released later on. Both versions are identical, except one is branded Arris and the other Motorola and the Arris version is the one ISPs will be selling/renting to customers.

True, and judging by the thumbs up you received, others have noticed. What can we say? We gamers are speed/bandwidth greedy!

Those specs. Methinks a PC build project is in my future.

I'm wondering if this is going to be using DX12. PC version will be and I don't see why not For Xbox 1 version.

I'm waiting for the reviews before I let myself get excited. It was slated to be released much earlier and then went back on the drawing board. I saw some of the gameplay for that version--not good.

The playing mechanics in the trailer reminded me of a game I played on Xbox 360 named "Timeshift". I really, really loved Timeshift. Beat it on every level, because it had so much replay value. I'll give this one a try, just because of that.

I'm ready for a new ip. Willing to give this one a try without the review. Remedy did a great job with Alan wake, so I'm confident I'll like this one as well.

Gears of War 4 coming to PC too ?

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1182803


Interesting... Now, building a kick-arse gaming PC for VR is starting to make a bit more sense. I could play Quantum Break and Gears of War 4 with everything maxed out, it would probably be pretty sweet.

You guys can slum it on your XB1's

I'm curious as to what you all think of the news with Quatnum Break being released day and date on Win 10 as well? It seems there were a lot of pissed off Xbox One owners that were not happy with losing the "Exclusive" game (Funny, I never figured it was, but that it would be released on PC as well.) heading to PC. My thoughts are that it makes sense, but than I always figured that the Xbox One and Win 10/PC were going to be one ecosystem anyways.

Remedy has made some good games so if anyone deserves the benefit of the doubt, they do. Alan Wake was one of the better games last generation as it told a very good story (about as close as we may ever get to a Stephen King inspired videogame) with some interesting gameplay wrinkles and a really creepy, unsettling ambiance which fit the subject matter perfectly. Alan Wake's American Nightmare was a very good followup which also told a good story, played well and smartly brought the story to a satisfying conclusion. Including those two little gems will be a nice bonus for anyone who's never experienced them.

Is there a way to force XB1 to check for game updates manually? Or do they update on launch if there is a update available?

Gaming hard from October thru April.

There was a recent update to Rock Band 4 and it applied the update when I launched the game. On 360 if you didn't accept the update it would log you out of XBL until you finished running the game. I'm not sure if it threatened to do that or not.

Destiny will apply updates after the game loads when you try to start it. I'm sure that they don't use the standard method.
