Looks like xbox one doesn't allow surround sound through cable with the hdmi pass through without enabling some kind of beta setting....

I received the Xbox One console a day early. I will hook up but I won't turn it on until the 22nd. I don't want to take the chance of my console getting banned because I think it goes right to the update.

On the PS4 pre-order they send me games and an extra controller early, yet I didn't get the console on it's release date. With the Xbox One they send me the console early but I don't think I will get any games or the extra controller until monday.

Anyways it will give me extra time to play around with the UI and setting up the Kinect.

Microsoft did unban all the people who received their XBOs early as of yesterday.

I preorded from amazon and they haven't even shipped it yet. I could just go down to wally world and buy one. No much point of selling day one if its a week or more late. Amazon blows.

Yeah. The problem isn't Sony, MS or even the shipping company. It's the warehouse sending them out too late. Futureshop botched the pre-order on the Playstation and now have made up for it sending the Xbox One a day early. But they forgot the games. Doh!

I just fired up this shiny new system.

Update went fine. Setting up the Kinect took about minute. The voice activation works well for the basic stuff I have tried so far in the menu. I'm sure there will be growing pains along the way. I have not logged into Xbox-live yet. Just messing around with settings.

I think the UI is a step up from the PS4. It's neat. My PC even detected Xbox-System OS over the wireless connection. It wants to allow me to play content from Windows Media Player.

The console itself is as quiet as the PS4 but the external power brick I can hear. It's not too loud but in terms of console noise I would have to give the edge to the PS4. They did an excellent job on that.

It seems the power brick stays "on" (white light) when you turn off the console with both the Kinect On/standby or Off. I haven't figured out how to shut the entire system off (where it would consume no power)

I'm really not a gamer , but I love new tech so I bought it and the kids will play it. My biggest gripe is the 1 doesn't have WMC which I think is a huge omission. I have 3 / 360's as extenders and I really didn't want another box cluttering up my entertainment center.

I really could have cancelled my order but they are for Christmas anyway so I will wait it out. I just like to bitch LOL smile

Today's Google Doodle's 8 bit games, FTW.

I'm surprised our resident Doctor Who hater hasn't jumped on this already. He's probably busy playing.

I'm not even supposed to be in this thread..

Just a generic Google search page in the US today. Must be that a majority of the US Citizens don't give a rip about Dr. Who. grin
