I noticed yesterday that I got it too, while monitoring the massive Destiny update. I hadn't tried to play it.

It's a promo. Overwatch is free to play on XBL this weekend.

Can someone confirm this and share the info with folks on how to join? This would be very cool to have an AVSForum club in XBOX post the update.

So NPD says XBOX sold more in August with the S (https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/08/...ugust-npd-ps4/). Thank goodness, if they trailed Sony even after releasing a new model that would have been really embarrassing. Will be neat to see how things look once the PS Pro shows up. This strengthening by MS and all the new models is fantastic for competition and reaching larger user bases for both companies.

Installing Overwatch now and I'll give it a go this weekend. If I like it great, if not I can always delete it.

I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly. Crap I say

I picked up Recore and have it preloaded on Xbox One. I know it can play anywhere so I figured I would go and install it on PC. Well for some reason I cannot find it on the App Store there or if I do it directs me back to where I need to pre-order it again. Anyone else pre-order the game and successfully install it on PC yet?

I had pre-ordered Re-Core earlier in the Summer for my XBOnes. I just went to the Windows app store and looked up Re-core. It said I owned it and I'm downloading it now.

It finished downloading ReCore on my PC. But if I try to launch it a message comes up that says I'm too early. Just like it does on the XBOne.

Hmmm maybe I looked it up to early since I had just bought it. I'll give it a try again and see what happens.

Marking Albert Penello's words, direct audio bitstreaming will happen (no maybe) but no estimate of when. It shouldn't be very difficult and it's something that will probably sell a few thousand units so I'd guess sooner rather than later, but that's just a guess. It'll be interesting to see if PS4 Pro will bitsteam Atmos metadata from 4K VUDU titles which have it.

I can't seem to get my Xbox One S to download when the machine is sleeping. I remember on my OG One (could be an older version of the dashboard as the reason), the second I set a download via the web browser, I could hear the machine start downloading. And everything would be done when I turned on the Xbox.

Now, nothing. I turn on the Xbox and a bunch of things are in queue.

I looked through the settings and everything appears to be in order. Is there a setting that I need to get this to work?

My original One's doing that now, no idea why. I came home and found a 4gig system update that should've been auto-downloaded.

Why wouldn't it? The current PS4 is already supposed to be able to from the Atmos test titles. The only real question is whether the PS4 pro will have access to the Vudu UHD titles. Since most devices don't.

Having the same issue mentioned above. My Xbox slim isn't downloading updates or games on standby. Also, can't get my slim to stream Netflix or YouTube in 4K. When I run these same apps through my tv apps it plays in 4K with no problem.

Enjoying ReCore so far. Graphics are better than I thought and gameplay has been fun. Not sure what all the fuss was in the reviews for problems in the game, but nothing seems broken for me. Game plays just fine other than some longer than normal load times.

Friendly reminder to make your voice heard. Go and upvote the hd audio issue so we can get true bitstream audio (DTS MA, Dolby TrueHD, lossless, Atmos, DTS:X, blah blah blah).

Is HDR working on the Xbox One S and if so, how do I find it. I have tried episode 2 of mad dogs and an episode of man in the high cancel. I did not have a problem with netflix hdr.

Also, any other apps support hdr on it yet? thanks.

Quick question. When searching for a TV show or movie on with Xbox One it used to provide what apps had that show or movie does it still do that, or is that option no longer there and MS is getting people just to buy or rent on Xbox Video? I haven't seen that for a bit and it is frustrating since some of the shows or movies are not all that new and should be around on different apps, or do I need to install something else?

Is anyone playing that Star Trek Online? Been playing it for a few days now and I have to say it's pretty fun and addicting.
I downloaded this game on PC in 2012 and played a little but vaguely remember it. I was strictly racing sim on the PC.
Playing it now I'm wondering why I didn't play it much back then. Just spoke with a friend who kicked it off himself today and also played it on PC.
He says the space component of the game didn't exist in 2012. That would explain why I didn't play it much back then.
You can tell this is two games in one. The ground component has some pretty dated graphics. Textures don't look to bad but overall you'll get the idea it's dated.
However the space combat is WOW. Well maybe not "WOW" kinda wow but definitely visually impressive and very fun. Game has lots of depth to it and a pretty long story with lots of missions, or "Episodes" as they call it. Plenty of customization and it's pretty deep. You can jump in and just play right away or you can spend some time making sure you optimize everything you have on your ship and with your crew to maximize your potential.

If you do decide to give it a spin I implore you give it more than just 5 minutes. At first it's slow but once you start getting your stuff it gets interesting.

Ok, the downside, it is a free game but there is a money factor in for special this and thats. Personally I think you can get a ton of fun off the free stuff alone as that's what I've been doing. I think it would behoove them to update the ground game graphically though to match the visuals of the space combat.

I highly suggest you do that. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I'm not gonna lie I'm addicted to it. I have to take the wife out to run some errands and if it was legal I'd probably be doing 90 there and back just to get to the game sooner. lol.

PS: And thank you Microsoft for snap feature. Although it's much maligned days like this is why I appreciate it. Watching some football and shooting some Borg is a good day.

Yeah, I'm impressed by the Star Trek game as well. I really didn't expect much from it. I've only been able to play in short spurts so far except for one time, when I was able to play for an hour and I spent that time doing a lot of customization. I'm looking forward to getting some real quality time in with this game.

STO is awesome and addicting. I haven't played it on the PC in a while since I hit the level wall and could not go any further. I will get back into it, next year, on the consoles or PC. It's got all the elements from the old Trek games that I loved playing (Armada, Elite Force, Away Team, Klingon Honor Guard, and Birth of The Federation) with modern spit and polish.

It's as if the project manager knew people would watch football while gaming. I do it too. Makes me wish I had an 85" tv

Seriously, someone please answer this question! I searched everywhere for an answer to this... you used to be able to just say "Xbox Bing" and then say the name of any movie, show or game you were looking for and it would tell you wherever that content was available on your Xbox whether it was Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, etc. and all you had to do was choose the source from there and start watching, it was amazing!

I pretty much sold a friend on that feature alone in fact... why the hell would they remove that? Is it just a different voice command for Cortana? Telling it to "Bing" now just does an internet search in snap... the f***?

I wanted to like STO, I really did. I've been jonesing for a new MMO to play. I gave it a few hours and....it just didn't grab me. Primarily due to the non-space aspects of the game. I don't mind the old graphics but the very clunky action was painful to play. The missions were pretty generic too. I did like the space angle but overall I don't think that alone is strong enough to keep me interested.
