The new fall update is out and I'm really liking it. The dashboard is simple, intuitive and snappy. I hope MS sticks with this and only makes minor improvements going forward.

That's cool. I am looking for improvements, I'm not a massive fan of the current o/s, find it too hard to navigate.

Ok Guys - about 21 days until the X lands.

1. Who has this bad boy pre-ordered?
2. Tell me what kind of TV your going to rock this thing on?
3. What games are you going to play day 1 (tough choice for me)

My answers

1. Sony 75" 940e (LCD/4k/HDR).
2. Hard choice in terms of day 1 games. But here i go: 1) Forza 7, 2) Call of Duty WW2 3) Wolfenstein 3 or Assassin's Creed (depending on Review).

I already own Tomb Raider (awesome game) and Gears of War 4 (haven't played it yet).

I'm getting excited for the Scorpio.

Freddie

1. Me, Scorpio Edition
2. Vizio P50-c1 4K
3. Probably between Shadow of War and Assassins Creed Origins, and I'll take a look at Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War, and Doom. Not sure if I'll get Super Lucky's Tale on launch date.

I've never tried Shadow of War yet. I got the Scorpio edition too. Origins looks real good; I'm torn.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/10/...-compatibility

Microsoft has revealed the first 13 backwards-compatible original Xbox games for Xbox One to IGN – several of which we got to play. These first 13 will be available tomorrow, October 24. All are enhanced with 1080p resolution, higher and/or smoother framerates, and faster loading times.

These are the first 13 games you can play on any Xbox One if you own the title, beginning tomorrow:

  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
  • Ninja Gaiden Black
  • Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
  • Fuzion Frenzy
  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
  • Psychonauts
  • Dead to Rights
  • Black
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates!
  • Red Faction II
  • BloodRayne 2
  • The King of Fighters Neowave

If you still have your original Xbox disc, just insert it into your Xbox One console. If you own it digitally, that will also work. Many of these games can also be purchased from the Xbox Store in digital form for $9.99.

New update seems a little cleaner but I wish they'd just toss this entire dashboard out and start over. At least let me turn off the tabs I never want to see...Mixer,community, entertainment, even the store etc. I want to turn it on and see my games first, and just a few custom shortcuts to the few apps I use. The rest is just an over abundance of info that I don't want to see. The entire thing reminds me of a web page full of adverts and banners and malware and ....useless junk.
