^^ Make sure you "test" the games for quality control

LMAO, I swear to God John, I was just telling my son that I'm going to be setting up the console to do updates and the first thing he said to me was "Don't play any games " and then I said I was gonna and we were talking about it, JUST NOW when I clicked on the thread and saw your post...so funny. But yeah, you know I'm going to.

Wait. your son already know's he's getting it for xmas? wtf is the point of that?

My sons are ultra-mellow about X-Mas, it's almost a chore to get them to think of things they want as gifts. I was the same way as a kid (still am) and at 13 I told my parents that they didn't have to get me anything anymore. The only reason they are getting it for X-Mas and don't have it already is because of my wife, she made a big deal about having a big gift to give them.  I don't really know if this satisfies your "WTF" but basically it's just how we roll, besides they are getting several gifts that they don't know about.



I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

You dont really have to use kinect for the most part so you can go ahead and dload the games and update.

The thing is, Kinect will need to be re-calibrated once you plug it in for christmas because if you move it messes with it a little bit.



If you are going to get them Peggle 2, or any other game digitally. I would go ahead and download or install them too along with the big update. Ryse just got a big patch the other day.

Like toadslayer72 said. The recalibration - both visual and audio, will just take a few minutes at best. (But is important - do not skip. I couldn't play Sports Rivals till I calibrated.)

And if you just happen to hit play. I hope you son will not be mad.

PS toadslayer72 may be the Kinect God, but I'm still the Official Ice Cream man!



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

I have an unopened One sitting in my basement since launch waiting for X-Mas. I got to thinking the other day that it might be a good idea to hook it up before X-Mas and download the updates and scoop up a few games so that on the 25th my kids can have a more streamlined experience. I'm wondering if, because of Kinect, the setup process will require me to be in the room that the console will ultimately be used in (my kids' room). I would really like to get as much setting up done as possible before that chaotic day. Thanks.


Do YOU have to be in front of your tv if your kids want to play xbox?? No

Do you have to re-configure Kinect again once you change rooms? Yes

Does it take a long time? No

I would just download the update, that takes the most time, the rest can be re-done in about 5 minutes

Yeah, I didn't think I had to be in front of the TV for them to play. Thanks for the rest, I'm gonna hook it tonight.

Unlike with the Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE, you'll want to get them setup with their own Xbox LIVE Gamertag if they don't already have them.

The upside, while you don't need to sign in for them to play the games you purchase and install on the console.  The downside, is if they don't already have gamertags, you'll need to get them setup with those.  If not already done, you may want to wait to set those up so that they can pick/choose their gamertags.

Ops, sorry, grabbed the wrong user.  So what would you like to be?  Head Chief of Kinect?  Xbox Goldar?  The Crown Prince of Xlive?
