Xbox One Console Thread

Think mine's fucked out of the box? Starts up and sits there with a fucking big xbox pad onscreen and the xbox symbol flashing, but I can't seem to get the pad to synch with the machine. Doesn't help that there is zero documentation of course :/ Am I missing something silly?

"Click of Death" - goddamn it internet. To be honest, a faulty disc drive sounds way less serious to me than a red ring of death. It should be easily fixable, but it sucks if it ruins your launch day.

Utterly gutting to hear about these launch failures. Hopefully it is a tiny minority and will be sorted quickly. It is bad enough when a new toy is defective, but it is a real disappointment to not be part of the launch day excitement after spending £450+ on a brand new console.

Hopefully MS will offer you something nice as compensation for your inconvenience, e-store credit, or a free game or Live subscription perhaps.

I would suggest that anyone with a defective machine get on to their retailer as quickly as possible. Shops may still have some stock for an exchange, and places like Shopto may be able to dispatch a replacement for quick delivery.

Touch wood mine is OK so far. I've installed DR3 and an currently installing Forza whilst waiting for the postie to bring Ryse. I don't think my order of Zoo Tycoon with shopto worked but their site is a fucking disaster so half the time I don't know if payments are taken or orders actually placed.

Machine seems good so far, the actual console looks and feels horrible of course but the pad is pretty good, although the RB and LB buttons are very stiff. Otherwise it's fine.

Set up was very easy, updates and game downloads very fast. Kinect seems to work well enough.

DR3 is fun.

Oh, man. Covis - absolutely gutted for you. :(

Latest riveting update here: Tom has just made his 100th delivery of the day. To celebrate his Boycott-esque crawl to the century, I'm off to the pub for an hour (sitting by the window, watching my front door), whilst he trawls round villages I've never even heard of on his seemingly endless route to my door.

Going round a friends tonight, i've been told there will be two xbox ones hooked up to couple big TVs with the following games: forza, dead rising 3, battlefield 4, call of duty ghosts, killer instinct and fifa. Think thats it.

Should be a good laugh, i'm not massively interested in the xbox one but looking forward to having a go.. even if i don't think much of the games (or i have already played them on pc)

Quite why anyone would continue to trust Amazon/be surprised if they didn't deliver you console on day one is beyond me. Haven't we been here before people?



Forza is compromised by fucking Jeremy Clarkson who's hateful, repulsive voice is not skippable in the intros.

I detest the coked up fuck.

Is there not a way to microtransact him out? Ideally of the country.

You can watch your front door from the window of the pub. I hate you.

Got mine and loving it so far - just busy installing everything, but just a quick warning - I'd recommend avoiding need for speed until they patch it... The frame rate problem noted in the eurogamer review is really off putting, and there is a weird sound bug in the loading screens which causes a loudspeaker cracking sound in my rear left speaker... It loops every 10 seconds or so, but sound awful... Hope it'll be patched quickly!

Other than that, all good!
