Hey guys/gals. Here is what i have found with my setup:
1 the uncompressed on xbox one sucks - put in the new star trek on bluray - no 7.1 audio even when set to 7.1 uncompressed
2 there is a dts digital surround codec which is fine but no DTS HD MASTER AUDIO
3 no dolby at all - dolby digital, dolby digital and specifically not DOLBY TRUE HD
4 when i think of next gen and dont get me wrong i am an xbox fanboy but dont try to sell me this as the "ONE" unit i need for entertainment
5 where are the game demos on xbox one? I want to try a game and if i like it i might actually buy the download instead of having to go to the store (like how microsoft want me to not have a physical copy)
5a how about this idea: charge me $10 for a game rental (of a major release-not arcade) for 3 days and if i would like to purchase it after my 72 hour rental is up let me do so for $50 since i already invested $10. This could do wonders even for microsofts bottom line
6 i know streaming movies is the future, but the quality is so bad even when you stream hd compared to a bluray - so tel me why i need netflix, vudu, xbox video and redbox instant all designed to steal money from me for a less the standard quality hd video service
7 MICROSOFT NEEDS TO STOP TREATING PEOPLE LIKE THEY ARE A CABLE COMPANY AND SAYING YOU NEED THIS AND THIS BUT NOT THIS OR THIS. THE ONLY APPS I HAVE SEEN ON THE XBOX ONE ARE DESIGNED TO TAKE MONEY OUT OF MY POCKET. WHERE ARE THE FREE APPS WE ALL ENJOY LIKE TWITTER, FACEBOOK, IMDB, IHEART RADIO AND SHOPPING APPS LIKE BEST BUY AND AMAZON? There is youtube which is cool and crackle (a very tiny amount of programming- but free none the less) i can get any of these options they have bundled into the xbox one on any smart tv or smart bluray player.
8 the graphics are pretty good. I know much has been made out of the 1080p vs 720p but it is really not an issue. The graphics are beautiful and i have not spotted any difference in the ps4 over the xbox one. Games look great on both. There is a definite upgrade from cod ghost on xbox 360 to the xbox one.
9 the kinect works great as long as your are talking to the xbox one in the way it was designed- there is a list of simple commands you should get to know on the internet
10 just give me the audio formats i want like dolby true hd and dts hd master audio
Those were my 10 thoughts on the xbox one and how to make it better. I know all of this stuff can and will be fixed in the future, next time maybe they should release a system that is finished. Stop relying on the internet for your inadequate development process.
