Black Ops 1 and the Bioshock Trilogy to be added in December. Would like to play Bioshock again.
Thanks. A little disappointed that Red Dead Redemption didn't make it but I'll take what I can get . A ton of titles are going to pop up on my "Ready to Install" list.

Also, Fable II but no Fable Anniversary or Fable III? Prince of Persia but no Forgotten Sands? (Surprisingly, Sands of Time, Warrior Within and Two Princes don't seem to have ever been offered as DDs). Again, I'll take what I can get. Hopefully the rest of those things come out in time.

So, I think (hope) I fixed the controller syncing issue. I read some different things online about re-syncing it and stuff. What I ended up doing is syncing it and then doing a complete hard boot on the system its self. Since then I haven't had any sync issue and played most of my day away on that controller yesterday.

Thanks for posting - please followup if your controller ever looses sync again.

I've only had one or two un-syncs since getting the Elite controller, but would love to figure out a permanent solution.

Is there a big controller drop connection problem? Or is it something few/far between?

Some get it, some don't.

I only get it under certain conditions - holding the controller low, usually with top of the controller covered by my crossed legs. I've learned not to sit that way when playing, but sometimes forget. And the re-sync is almost immediate, so it's really only a minor pause in the game.

My theory is it's a weak antenna/receiver in my Day One console. Or interference, but haven't figured out with what.

For fun I'm going to look at the power brick specs on mine when I open it up next month. I wonder how the power draw compares to a launch console. I wonder if Microsoft did a rev that nobody knows about. I don't know if my Tomb Raider bundle is new stock (like my PS4 Uncharted bundle is), or if Microsoft just plops whatever they have in hand in a new box.

We'll see.

Damn, that is disappointing to hear that the Elite controller un-syncs does as well. My personal take is their new wifi controller setup is to blame. Never ever had a problem on the 360 controllers unless the batteries were practically dead.

My controller disconnects only when: 1.the batteries are low. 2. I have it buried in my lap and line of sight is interrupted. I do use wireless surround headsets, and my Macbook is always sitting right next to me. But again, only when my batteries run down to about 20-25%(according to the battery icon on the dash).

Mine was disconnecting right out of the box with fresh batteries. Since doing the new sync and reboot I have only had one disconnect but my batteries were starting to get low and not too long after told me the batteries were dying. I while the battery life much better than the PS4 I wouldn't say they are the best I have had either.

Played the better part of the day on Halo 5 multiplayer. Had a blast. Much more fun than a lot of online shooters.

Quick question: Is there a quick way to change your mic and headphone volume while in a game. I was fumbling around trying to get to the settings app to change it.

Nice to see a lot of classics in the first round. Scanning that list, I bet I own 40 games off it.

I hope that theme continues going forward like the addition of Namco Museum Virtual Arcade, Capcom Arcade Cabinet, Midway Arcade Origins, Raiden Fighter Aces, Tron (Wonder why Discs of Tron and Tron Evolution are here, but not the classic that started it all?), Time Pilot, and many others.

Also hoping to see Afterburner Climax, Outrun Online Arcade, and Sega Rally Revo/Online Arcade. Not holding my breath though with expired licenses, since I assume that's a dealbreaker even though only existing owners could access these delisted classics and no 360 code is modified. Same with Battlezone from Atari, missing here despite stablemates like Asteroids being listed, since the IP has sadly been sold off by the French to Rebellion during a brief fling with liquidation before they changed their minds.

I hope Project Gotham Racing 3 and 4 make the cut. People say all 1st party releases outside of Kinect 1.0 titles will join this, but I've yet to see where MS actually promised that. And with all the music and vehicles that surely have expired rights at this point (Otherwise, MS would sell these digitally on the 360's marketplace), relicensing this content will be an expensive proposition.

If that is true, I wonder if Game Room stands a chance. That's a Microsoft published release after all.

it's the same controller that's in the elite console bundle isn't it? it looks like the same description but the console seems so cheap to have that and a hybrid drive.

I'm so glad the new dashboard is coming out tomorrow. Wonder how long it will take to download & install?

Me too. I just got the system so I would rather learn the new setup instead of the outgoing setup. I am assuming the update will install on its own if I have the system in the instant on setting.

It will download by itself if you have it set to Instant On with the download option enabled. I have had these things tell me that it has the update and to hit a controller button to start installing. My guess is that if it's going to take a while they don't want to chance your unplugging the system because you're moving it or something.

I had mine set like that before I went to bed. Woke up to see how the new update was, but looked like it did. So, I went to settings & update console. Updating as I write this.

I have been dealing with the issue for over a year. I primarily play Destiny and it occurs mostly during high activity in the game but has occurred when nothing is going on. I have no Wireless devices near my seating position or Xbox. I have purchased numerous controllers with the same problem and also used the play and charge kit. My next step is MAYBE my Speakers are causing some sort of interference from the magnets or something so I will try moving the console again. I have POLK center and tower speakers in close proximity to the console. This should not be an issue but I am out of options other than buying a new console.

When I turned my machine on this morning I did get a controller update, so hopefully that will fix it.

I really ought to act more like a woman of my advancing years, but I’m growing old disgracefully.

Is it possible to get controllers fixed by someone other than Msoft? I now have 2 with bad drift making them unplayable. And both are way outside warranty of course.

Get the Elite controller. You can completely feel the quality when you hold it. Metal shafts.

The only concern I have for longevity is the paddles. Sure, the paddles are high quality themselves, but the tiny tiny contact button they push when you press the paddle gives me concern that the button will wear out. I use the paddles for a lot of melee so I use them more than most people would use paddles. If your case use is paddles for only grenades or occasional use items, then it's not a concern. But if it's something you're hitting every few seconds with rapid action, I personally am concerned.

So many people buying $150 game controllers. Must be nice to be a 1%er .
