@life understandable about the 1000 friends list, but what they can do is let your favorites list pop up at least. Give us the tools to be able to make this console ours. I know they want us to use voice controls to navigate, but in times like late at night when people are asleep I'm not trying to talk to my Xbox to navigate. PS4 truly gives me the option to use voice commands and is very easy to navigate to new users. It took me 30 minutes to figure out that I had to turn party chat on when I entered a party on Xbone. It's things like that that push people away. I would much rather be on the 360 right now instead of the one and it's the exact opposite with Playstation. Just my opinion though :)
Glad to see this is coming out and that there are 2 scheduled. Seems odd to me that there wasn't already a system update as there's always some things to address relatively quickly after a product is released. They've always done a good job updating their system and I look forward to seeing if they fix some of the annoying features in these coming updates. The party update is the one I'm looking forward to seeing the most where they should fix some of the annoyances with parties.
They also said after E3 they couldn't remove DRM and wouldn't make all the changes they ultimately made. Time will tell.
Really good read, hopefully such a fast-paced game will dissolve most problems with camping. I think that's the main reason I get frustrated with COD and BF. Do you guys think the fast pace will help or hinder?
One of the reasons (but not the only) why I chose an XB1 was the controller. I like the fact they still have replaceable batteries. I don't want to buy a new controller when my battery stops holding a charge. I've also read the PS4 and it's big LED light has pretty bad battery life. I love how the 360 controller felt and the XB1 controller isn't too much different. The top bumpers are a little awkward to hit now but everything else feels great. @Hammdogg I didn't really want a Kinect either but using your voice to turn on your xbox and your tv at the same time and to turn all your components off is really nice. Navigation works really well too, at least for me. I'm optimistic that with MS being a software company they're really fine-tune the experience.
