Some annoyances I have had:
* No 1440P support.
* Console isn't telling me what updates are available for games unless I attempt to launch the game.
* Still hate the UI. It's just not convenient to use with the UI scrolling left, right, up and down, hidden menu's, sub-menu's and so on.
* No Kinect Port. (Yeah yeah, I know. I enjoy using the voice commands to launch apps though.)

Otherwise... It's still very much an Xbox One, with all the good and the bad baggage that goes with it.
The External Hard Drive support is still amazing, Sony and Nintendo needs to catch on... Just plugged my drive in and... Up comes 250+ games already installed.

Also... Not sure I like the texturing on the new Xbox One controllers... Or if I am just used to the launch Xbox One controllers more uniform feel, see how I go over the next few days I guess.

Nice man, Xbox one X has confirmed 1440p and freesync support so monitor users rejoice, the external HDD support is indeed much better then on my PS4 and the speeds are quite good on it.

Can't wait to get mine today :D

X1X Console has sold out in Australia and its 2nd Batch has also sold out. I told you the $650 price tag is an amazing price especially in Aus.

I have to wait for the 3rd batch of X1Xs to be delivered to get my hands on one. Ill have to use my PC for the time being.

If any one knows a place with stock please let me know so i can pick one up.

I'll have a play around with it later to see what is up. I might need a better HDMI splitter.

Looking at the console, it's a very boring looking black box. Hopefully there is a special edition later for something a little more vibrant.

$650 AUD is $498 USD right now. So we aren't being ripped off for once.

I sold my original launch Xbox One console with Kinect for only $100 AUD which went towards this... And did I mention how much I miss kinect? I am probably like one of 5 people on Earth that does. Haha

The only thing wrong is it's still an Xbox One in regards to game installs. They really need to catch up. Just put Rise of the Tomb Raider in for both it and the Pro and the latter was done within 5 minutes (updates and all).

Yeah. They can get rather lengthy.
The Pro though isn't dumping the entire optical disk contents to the hard drive, the Xbox One is, there is Pro's and Con's to both approaches I guess.


Well, regarding just jumping into a game, I like the PS4's way of doing it, like the 360 before that. Just put the disc in and go! Other than that, so far, the system is lovely!



                                                                                                                                            

Can't get mine until Best Buy opens up at 10.
You guys are so lucky, I also went and bought a 6tb external hard drive on Amazon as well.

@ Pemalite: Serves you right for skipping the more attractive Scorpio Edition!

I was literally an hour late. AN HOUR LATE.
So I had to get into the second wave of pre-orders. Haha

Played some Overwatch. It's now locked at 1080P, it still looks soft on my 1440P display though, but way way way better than what it used to be when things got hectic.

Downloading updates for Halo Wars 2, Halo 5, Diablo 3 and a few 360 titles. I'll give them a spin later.

Didn't a few Xbox 360 games have mandated installs though? Can't remember. Feels like a generation ago. :P

Main reason for the Xbox 360's precedent is that... There were variations of the console with no internal storage.
Some consoles came with 256MB, some with 4GB. - So developers needed to keep those console in mind.

But it was better overall IMHO.

The Playstation 3's install procedures was tiresome, seems Sony learned from that with the Playstation 4.

That shouldn't happen. At least I think the default setting should be that they are automatically updated.
You might wanna go through the settings, there is an option to automatically keep the games updated and it works quite well. Maybe it's just disabled?



Patiently awaiting the UPS man....



I'm not really here!

Ordered mine from GameStop. Scorpio Edition, of course. According to my email, it won't be here until the 8th. Unfortunately, I go back to work after a week off tomorrow night. Unless it arrives tomorrow morning, I won't be playing it until Thursday morning. 😢
