With regard to xbox live account - which one go you guys recommend?

It looks like 12 months for Xbox gold costs about 44.99. I read you can get 2 free games a month with xbox gold - is this true - what is the catch?

what are the other benefits?

pardon my ignorance - ive just been out of the gaming scene for a minute... thanks!

thanks!
Are you planning on leaving your Kinect disconnected? If not, you can use the IR blaster feature + voice commands to do what your Harmony remote does now -- in theory. I'd at least wait until you see how it performs before jumping on a new remote.

I believe the 2 free games with Xbox Gold goes away once the Xbox One gets released next week.

No, they made it permanent, but it only applies to Xbox 360. I have a feeling it may come to Xbox One in the future though... Especially if Sony keeps up with their service.

I couldn't imagine myself wanting to ever use voice commands all the time though. But there's a problem with Harmony's core technology in this scenario anyway.

What Harmony remotes do best is that they remember the state of your equipment. Assuming your equipment doesn't have discrete codes, the remote will know that your TV was turned off last, and put onto HDMI3 last, and then can use that to figure out what it needs to do to use whatever activity you're going into. With the Kinect/Xbox One, theoretically sometimes you'll be turning it on via the console and other times you might want to turn the system on via a remote. That means the remote could potentially be confused a lot, which would mean many more presses of the remote's "help" button to walk you through each of your individual components. With that being the case, I second your recommendation for someone to wait and see.

I'll do just that wait to see what the feedback is like on a later time.

Random question. Do you think they will have 360 games as DLC at some point? Even if it isn't technically backwards compatible. And I hope they will have downloadable arcade games either specific to XbOne or at least the 360 ones. I haven't heard much about what downloadable stuff will be available.

I like to play old games just like some people like to watch old movies.

Interesting timing to announce this as a lot of people are deciding which games to get Microsoft gives people an incentive to wait on anything they are not sure of. My guess is the launch "arcade" games will be the first games to go free.

The only way you will see backward compatible games is if they recode the games like the "HD" remixes of the current generation or some sort of streaming solution.

lococycle for sure.

I don't see any launch games being free. I am guessing it will be 360 games that are redone for the Xbox One.

Why would they go through all that trouble just to release it for free? Unless they're trying to keep the running joke going?

But remember on Xbox One games are just games and no longer separated in brackets like "arcade"

I think that you essentially cannot have the Xbox One turning your AVR and television on and off if you want to use your Harmony or other state-sensitive universal remote. You could still have it set up to turn the console on with the "Xbox On" voice command and to respond to "Volume Up"/"Volume Down"/"Mute" commands. If you choose to always watch television through your Xbox you could have it turn the tuner and and off (I leave my tuner, a TiVo Roamio, on all of the time for the DVR function); even if you don't you could allow it to change channel; the Harmony doesn't keep track of stuff like that.

They've stated an intention to possibly address backward compatibility with streaming, like Sony's Gaikai solution. The games run on servers in "the cloud", streaming video to your console and relaying commands input through your console. The OnLive service works that way now (and has somehow survived for a little over three years, despite major ups and downs).

The Xbox 360's triple PowerPC core architecture would be a bitch to try to emulate on the Xbox One's multicore x64 platform.

Do they have other XBOne controllers in stock or only pre-orders? I need to pick up an XBOne controller so I can test out this NyKo dual charge base station I got.
