Isn't that every GUI based windows operating system?

 

Hell microsoft just released their first server OS that's available without a GUI.  A server with a GUI has always made my head hurt.

I have no clue, waiting till after Christmas to get the Xbox. I'm sure you could of had you waited out last night. Let us know what you think of it, and hopefully you don't get one of the small percentage of ones with the faulty disc drive mang!

Xbox One is fuging aggravating most of the stuff I want won't be available until spring... (HboGo, Twitch streaming, headset Etc.) Also a pretty big learning curve.

What is there a learning curve for?

I had a hard time updating the XBone. I had to restart it twice because it wouldn't connect to my network, and then it quit in the middle of the update download. After I got that figured out, I went to install Forza and it wouldn't read the disc, so I ejected the disc and put it right back in, and it worked. No problems since. I also got Ryse but it read the disc the first time I tried so no worries there. The PS4 took me a total of about 10 minutes to get it up and running, the XBone took about an hour, give or take a few minutes. Neither system impresses me over the other one at this point, although it could be the game selections not being very much now. Killzone is a masterpiece, and Forza is a beast. I got the Limited Edition so I could have the 2013 McLaren P1, Aston Martin Vanquish, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, and the 1987 Yellowbird right off the bat.

Sticking with my PS3. I don't play enough to consider an upgrade.

I was at Gamestop last week and struck up a conversation with the manager. He flat out said that the PS4 isn't worth the money and he recommends people to stick with the current gen. He said there's hardly any upgrade at all and it's pretty disappointing. That's pretty much what I was expecting so it was no big shock to me, besides the fact that it came out of a video game store managers mouth.

 

 

I'm hanging on to my 360 until they quit making new games for it. There's a huge backlog of games I haven't played and not many reasons to upgrade yet.

After getting the XBOX hooked up, I'm just not sure why this TV feature is on there...as the XBOX does nothing your remote won't do...

 

Navigating and getting used to the menus is such a pain in the royal rear-end.  That's not to say it doesn't accomplish what it sets out to, but I was lost for about half an hour.

 

Haven't used much Kinect as the "XBOX, On." type commands just seem to gimmicky and don't work as you see on TV.  Plus, when you have friends over, they can torment you by just saying the word, "Xbox" as a new overlay will become active.  Had to turn Kinect off as there was noway to disable voice commands by itself (that I could find).

 

A bright and shining light from my experiences so far, is the controller.  The motorized triggers are excellent.  I bought Forza with the console, and the rumble makes the Left Trigger feel like a brake pedal, and of course right as the Accelerator.  As for Forza, that's a whole-nother topic, and Forza is well done.

 

Haven't watched a Bluray or tried Streaming anything yet, so can't comment on those features.  The manual and tutorial for the console were very lacking. Not many tips to point you in the right direction, but eventually I got there.

 

Obviously the jury will be out until more games are released, and features are added, but so far.  I tend to side with the, "Less is more" crowd, so the PS4 interface is much more attractive.
