  1. Pros and Cons of XBOX ONE (Little Review)


    So I've had my XBOX ONE for a little over a month now. And I have to say it surpassed a lot of my expectations. But as every system/game/product it does have a few downsides.

    Pros:

    + Easy to set up

    + Very Quite

    + Long battery life in controllers (even with cheap batteries)

    + The fact you don't lose your gamer score.

    + You can connect TV/Cable Box/XBOX 360 to it. (I have my XBOX 360 connected to it)

    + Finally has a Blu-Ray Player (which I still need to download)

    + Games are amazing graphic-wise.

    + The fact you can turn it off and turn it back on and start from where you left off in the game without having to reload the game.

    + The fact that it can preform a lot more and not/barley lag.

    + Voice Commands very cool.. I hardly even have to touch my XBOX to turn it on, off, switch to this, to that. Very very fun to use.

    + A lot more to list.. but I am a little lazy right now. LOL.



    Cons:



    - Price (Although I got it $30 cheaper because the lady at the store messed up)

    - Bandwidth Hog if you are thinking of getting an XBOX ONE it is a good idea to ensure that you have more then 100GB of data per month. The first day I got this I used 31GB of data which would have
    taken me more then a few days to do it without. I got up to 97% of my data usage last month. This month I am just under 88%.

    - Games seem to load a little slower then on XBOX 360.. kinda. When playing MP on CoD: Ghosts I noticed that the game loads a bit slower going into a match then it did on 360.

    - Having to sign in more the once (sometimes). After signing in to your XBL Account starting up a game will promot you into signing in again. This mostly happens in CoD: Ghosts, but it has happened
    a few times in Dead Rising 3 and Watch Dogs.

    - SOMETIMES Kinect will ignore you. You can scream at it and it just sit there ignoring you.. how rude!!

    - Can't play 360 games.. but you can connect your 360 to XBOX ONE.. so whatever.



    All and all I love my XBOX ONE wouldn't trade it for anything other system. The cons a very minor in my book. Great system.

    :)

  2. Xbox One are you taken in or thinking of a console change. And why.

    Well, I've actually got myself a little "pros and cons" list for both consoles, sadly the x1 list is more cons than pros at the moment tho.

    Who has a data cap any more? You need to switch ISP.

    Games have more to load. They actually load quicker but have far more data TO load.

    This sign in issue happens if the Kinect cannot see the LED on your controller and your face.

    If the game is loud this can happen, but the correct response is to wait a few seconds and try again. Shouting will make it worse.

    Rumour has it an emulator will be announced at E3.

    My ISP just started enforcing a data cap a few months ago, but I can't switch because out of my options the cable provider has the lowest latency. I even had to increase my speeds from 20m(250gb) to 30m(350gb) just for the higher data cap.

    Prime example of why not having healthy competition is bad.

  7. I get 33ms to West Europe and 108ms to East Coast US. Latency isn't as bad as it seems. 33 is excellent and 108? I didn't notice the difference until I asked.

    I don't think you are signing in twice when you start a game, you are just choosing the profile game save. Kinda like on the 360 when it has us choose the game save location (HDD or Cloud).

  9. @A Virtual Duck - There are very few (if any) ISP companies in Canada that don't have data caps.. unless you go with a business plan and you are paying a lot more for a lot less speed. For example.. I can get speeds up to 120Mbps for $94/mo (or cheaper with
    bundle) or pay $101/mo (no contract) business for only 28Mbps.

    But my data cap is 275GB and the only reason I came close to that data cap was because of the huge first update for XBOX ONE.. plus two games, and DLC (31.05GB in total).

  10. I only get 15MBps which is more than enough for online gaming. Indeed, in Titanfall I always have 5 bars with the exception of playing across the Atlantic.

  11. Kinect can certainly have it's off days, but I usually get it on the second command. The trick is not to get Angry with it. It seems to know when you are angry.
