Apparently there are a lot of rumors and unconfirmed info on both consoles launching. I can only relate a short conversation that I had LAST WEEK with someone(and the person with him) beta testing the XB1. This seems to be more than others are willing to prove in their rumors.
He told me that it is unbelievable at how well the snap feature works between all of the apps. He said that there is no lag and it happens very fast.
He also talked about how great the games looked on his 50" tv. He said that he has logged more hours playing on Live in the last 3 weeks than he has in the last 6 months combined.
So, I call B.S. on the Live not working and the snap feature not working rumors.
I was tempted to go find this guy again today to get his opinion of the rumors, but I don't have the time. If I can, I will update you on what he says if I get a chance to find him yet this week.
I said it and I meant it!
