I got one, and so far like it. You can download the games straight to it, crossing off another reason to leave the couch. I was pretty disappointed with how glitchy BF4 was last night. For the life of me, I could not team with a friend of mine, got bounced from games for no apparent reason to the xbox one homescreen (completely out of the game), and had it lock up on me too. Not cool Bf4, not cool. The controllers are nice, a little smaller than the 360's with wider wrap around triggers. It's also a lot quieter than my last 360, which is nice.

Some of the disc drives are busted out of the box. Be careful putting a disc in because it could mess up the game.

Also - A day one achievement? That's just campy....

I went to gamestop to get a new headset and this guy brought in an Xbox One he had owned for less than 2 weeks. Lol... I'm guessing he got like, tops $300 in store credit?

I never buy a new gaming platform until all of the actual beta testing is done...

For any forum members looking for an Xbox One, may be a more affordable option.

I guess there's something going around about how you can make the XBOX One backwards compatible with the X360. From what I understand, ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DO IT; IT WILL BRICK THE XBOX ONE.

Going to set up the XB1 when I get off work. Wish me luck lol. I've never been so nervous about a console before. There's just too many horror stories this gen. What happened to buying a complete working product?

Ok, played BF4 for 4 solid hours last night. No crashes, worked great, had a blast. First time it's worked anyway near that well, and just hope it stays that nice. Finally starting to get my groove of how I need to play certain maps as a shotgunner or support.

it comes down to all mighty dollar. both playstation and microsoft where trying to one up each other. so they both rushed it out. so they can one up each other. also the fact nether want to come out year after other one did and be out same year as Nintendo.

Set mine up, sort of dodgy on looks lol. Cramming my cables behind the screen.

I like the interface so far. Still trying to be able to talk to it clearly. It's pretty magical to walk into the frame and it recognize me and log me in. Day two of it setup, I didn't touch the controller at all. Every command was voice/kinect. Pretty neat on that end (the geek in me is happy with it).

Now I need to buy a game.

Edit: oh yeah....that power brick...
