Xbox One will "likely" power up faster than your TV when booting from standby mode, Microsoft has claimed.
That wouldnt be hard. My TV takes 20 seconds to come on.
Time to change the hamster inside me thinks.
The TV is only four years old. Its a Samsung LE40A616 100Hz LCD Tv but its got CCFL backlight instead of LED backlight. Its a faster than the BenQ GW2250H VA monitor I got two and a half months ago. It looks like some people think my TV doesn't take 20 seconds to come on. I would love to know what spying equipment some of these people use to see into my house and watch me all the time.
lol. Isn't that funny? I remember sometimes waiting 5plus min for a floppy disc game to load. We have become so impatient with technology.
Yeah so true. And the noise those old cassette games made while loading... http://www.youtube.com/watc... This noise and those flashing bars are ingrained in my memory.
The Commodore64 was the worst for it or the ZX80.
Try loading a spectrum 128k from a cassette tape. It might take over 10mins and then crash at the very last second. Doh!
Yep. That's what I had. A Commodore64. Some of best times... Jump man jr. Dino Egg, kid grid, Rambo etc....
I'm going to time my TV, when I'm done in the bathroom.
I know how long my tv takes to turn on because it states that it takes 20 seconds to turn on in the owners manual.
Making good news look bad again... Never change N4G.
Im actually pleased to hear this. The 360 takes forever to load/sign in to Xbox Live. Less time waiting and more time gaming :D
Yeah, My 360 sometimes just says F you I'm gonna take my time. I picture it like an old grumpy man. lol. Sometimes it'll load quick. I wonder why that is. I clear my cache and delete unplayed games. I usually have 18 to 32gigs free on my hard drive.
We haven't forgiven them yet, so let it rage on.
Well... it's not really good news.... What is the actual point of the console turning on quicker than your TV?
anythings better than the current load for the 360... my god that think is ridiculous i sometimes make tea while i'm waiting
How is this good news? Who even cares? What is the point of the console booting faster that the TV if you can't see what is being displayed?
So when your TV actually does turn on, you're not stuck at the "No Input" screen or a boot logo.
My TV takes a good 10 seconds to boot up. I don't have one of those fancy universal remotes, so it's good to know I'll be able to manipulate my entire entertainment system vocally, and have it set for the situation before the TV even turns on. Not a killer app per se, but its a nice touch.
I would love to wake up and say: Xbox On Xbox Play Vevo and my day starts with TV on playing Vevo! No looking for remote and no fuss. Just instantly on!
Good to hear.
Boot boot......... Boot
Xb1 has the better overall experience that's for sure
Your just asking for trouble! *do they ever learn*
Better overall experience because it has a fast boot time? Lol. What does your post even mean anyway? Pure opinion.
@ pascalini You said it man. 720p, AA batteries, VCR body, what more could you want? I can't wait to not get an Xbox one on NOV 22nd.
I doubt u gettin any system u to broke .
I love black plastic erasers too! OMG can't wait for GS4.
Let's wait and see until both are out before we make claims what console has the better gaming experience.
Whats the point? no benefit for playin games whatsoever, if your console boot up faster you cant play until the tv is ready, if the tv boot up first you cant play either!
lmao that is a good point. You still have to wait on the TV to do anything XD
Haha, yeah you're right. I didn't think about that. *X1 boots up super fast* *Sits there waiting for TV for display*
Well, when my TVs ready, I don't want to sit around staring at the screen waiting for the console to boot up. This way, as soon as the TV is on you're ready to play.
I just turn my TV and PS3 on at the same time. It boots up before my TV does, but when the screen is ready, the PS3 is waiting for my input. I imagine the X1's ability to do this has something to do with that 8GB flash memory they have in the system. It's not a bad thing. Hardly a selling point though.
Is this like some form of S3 sleep state you see on pc's? I use this for my htpc's and with the use of an ssd, it boots very fast back into windows. Hasn't the XBO got a small amount of flash ram? Maybe its been used to support this sleep style state.
Probably something like that. I saw a demo of a Windows 8 laptop coming out of hibernate / sleep extremely quickly. If I remember the key part was the features in the new UEFI BIOS API's that Windows 8 could take advantage of - so I'd imagine MS has done something similar with the X1 architecture.
Pretty cool. It's a small thing, but waiting for tech to boot up can be the bane of my life. Never has a minute taken so long.
Xbox one really loves the television .
"Will boot faster than your tv while in standby mode" Well, my tv has standby mode too chump" :)
so if you're one of the people who've the set top hooked up to the xbox one, could you say "xbox ESPN" or whatever and have it all set to go by the time the tv turns on?
I'd sure hope so, Standby mode is no different then sleep mode on your PC. I wonder how long boot up time would be from completely powered off. I'd imagine something like 15-30 seconds? A) The OS is on flash memory (i.e SSD) B) it has to load 3 OS's Give our take I'd say somewhere in the 20 secondish range.
Yea, OK -.-
and this is news how? ps4 also has a suspend/standby state that picks up right where you left off.
Not at launch they don't.
Somehow Sony trolls turning this into bad news, this site... Such a joke. OT: This is going to be such a great change from waiting almost 2-3 minutes till the you were actually playing again with certain games.
