  1. With the Xbox One due to hit stores in less than a month, one would imagine that all of the major bugs and intricate ticks were already washed from Microsoft's upcoming hardware. But unfortunately they haven't. Not according to Xbox...

    MS knows better. It will be fixed for launch (especially since the public now knows about it lol)

    With all the system updates required on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 over the years (some just to make some games/apps work), you'd think people would be more accustomed to this type of thing. Considering all the time and banther-foo-doo a console has to go through before it finally hits shelves I was surprised to hear so many disappointed the PS4 needs a day one update....really, its that surprising?
    Maybe if your a selfish kiddie who wants his shiny toy with batteries installed, but for the rest of us somewhat sane people I admit the backlash I read/heard about was a little surprising.

    I doubt it, considering all the other patches that have had to come out after launches before.

    It's a higher priority fix by the sounds of it, not like I'll be getting one at launch to see :p
  7. With the late 180 changes made to the box...I don't expect anything but day 1 issues. I am anticipating major major problems with XBone180/720p only box.
  8. And I am anticipating major major problems with PS3.5
    But I'm just a guest, what do I know ;)

    There will be issues and caveats with both. Let's sit back and laugh at the day one guys and make our choices once the dust settles (yes I cancelled my xbox one preorder).
  10. I don't get how people can pick what console is better. To do that, you have to play both systems, but you can't as they are not released yet. Can you tell me what is the best car of 2015? No you can't as it's not out yet. Both consoles are going to have good points and bad points. I myself don't really see the value in them yet over what we are playing now.

    Specs brah. PS4 has better specs and less fees. Besides that, ergonomic matters for controller comfort.

    Wow. The XBOX ONE requires reboots for OS updates. I've never heard of that concept before! Now, you're telling me that it might just reboot on its own to apply those updates? Radical!! I mean, Windows doesn't even do that!

    LOL, this is so funny. All the xBox fanboys were grilling PS for having a day 1 update that will activate most of the features the PS4 is supposed to already have and here they are not even sure if they will have an update for a problem that is worse than that of the PS4. Oh the ironies.

    And I have to agree with Guest above, specs mean nothing until you actually try the system out. After all there have been more than enough gadgets out there where the creators showed them off at tech shows yet when the public got their hands on them problems quickly arrived that the creators never had during their presentations. Take the iPhone 4's antenna issue, it happens, you never know if the tech is gonna work till you try it and then you will know which is better. Unless you go against a PC in which case the PC will always be better. :+D
