Its like that everywhere really. The XB1 has been the preferred whipping boy since E3. Its the "in thing" to harp on the console and ANY positive news towards is just met with more mudslinging. For example CD Projekt Red have stated that they have found development slightly easier on the XB1 compared to the PS4 and that was met with people claiming they have been paid to say that by MS or that they just didnt know what they were talking about.

I don't think its much different than the start of last gen. Sony was taking a lot of negativity when they launched the PS3.

Damn, I've been watching Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare game play videos. It looks like silly fun. For 40 bucks I may have to pick it up.

It took a lot more than just a price drop for people to stop ****ting on the PlayStation 3. On top of the higher price point, the PlayStation 3 had inferior multiplatform games, had inferior services, and the Xbox 360 had a far superior exclusive library. Once developers got used to the PlayStation 3, Sony added more to the PlayStation 3's services, and eventually surpassed the Xbox 360 in terms of exclusive content, that is when people started cheering for it.

With the Xbox One, I think it's going to take a lot more than just a price cut. Even though it offers more services and currently has more high-quality first party content than the PlayStation 4, the way they advertised the system just turned off gamers while Sony promoted the PlayStation 4 as a true gamers' machine.

If Microsoft changed the way they promote the Xbox One, then I'll think it'll stop being the whipping boy of gamers.

Yeah price is a huge issue but the prerelease marketing and communication was absolutely terrible and is the main reason these consoles aren't doing similar figures.

Yea I got it yesterday. You'll know you got it when you turn your xbox off and it goes to a hard power off state(assuming you have the setting for the sleep mode on)

Ok, I've tried to get it to start a few times. I wish you could just manually do it.

Yea if you've turned your Xbox off and it didnt go through the hard power off state, again assuming you use the "instant on" setting, then that means the update hasn't hit you yet. This is what Major Nelson says about the updates and how they work:

Quote:
As I noted in my blog post about the December system update, we’ve changed the way these work on Xbox One to reduce the impact on our customers. For the vast majority of Xbox One owners who use “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), the console automatically checks for updates when customers turn it off. This means now that we’ve made the February update available, the next time you turn your console off it will take the update during off-peak hours in your local time. All that to say, never fear you’ll see it sometime over the weekend.

No, Energy Save is the hard power off state. So you have two modes, Instant On and Energy Save.

Mine's been on Instant On since I bought it. Should probably reboot it at some stage.

Every time I play a new episode or movie on Netflix today, it instantly puts on subtitles. I turn them off, then the next episode comes on, and the subtitles are on again.
