If you want to see how an Xbox One dev unit looks while booting up cold, a very interesting video shows exactly that.
My PS3 is faster than this ...hopefully the PS4 doesn't take that long.
Remember, it's a dev unit. We don't know what kind of diagnostics it has to boot.
You're right of course but I still was surprised ...it's supposed to be "next gen" hardware after all.
Everything is news these days. @Zod It is next gen hardware.
Yea, for example the PS4 Demo Booth (which is also running a custom OS that consumer PS4s won't have) takes about the same amount of time to load up.... http://www.youtube.com/watc... The loading you see "*/92" actually happens every time you exit a game and go back to the dash too.
yeah. Its probably booting a different version of the OS in debug mode too. Imagine starting windows in safe mode with networking, it runs through all the drivers and dll files first. Similar thing I reckon. Prob has to SHA-MD5 checksum some parts too.
They've already said the console will turn on faster than your TV can.
From stand by. This is a cold boot. Entirely different process.
Right, but how many people are really going to have it off standby? My PS3 has been on standby for like 3 years now hahah.
Well some people unplug devices when they are out of the house to save energy.
I highly doubt the retail console takes that long. We saw from the commercial that is was 3-4 seconds before the dashboard booted up. @jackanderson1985 "That could have been from standby though." That's a good point! I guess we will see soon enough, 15 days and counting.
That could have been from standby though. I doubt it'll be as long as 27 seconds but might be more than 4
10 days and counting... Oh, wait...
please go play in traffic.
ps3 isnt loading as much either. This is the result of it not always being connect now.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Xbox One isn't designed to be powered off and on. It's designed to run in standby all the time. What does the boot up from standby look like? That is what interests me.
The influx of narrow minded fanboys (both sides) has gotten larger on this site. People seem to lack the ability to think or see reason!
27 seconds. What are they trying to do burn the XBOne logo into our brains.
Man! You fools are seriously fishing. It is DEV unit for F sakes!
27 seconds is not that long. Plus they stated that the Xbox one will boot up in seconds since it never shuts down its always in standby
1. This is a dev kit And 2. This seems like a cold boot. Both the X1 and PS4 are supposed to stay in a "sleep" state which allows both to "boot" faster then a cold boot.
27 Seconds too long. Not buying Next Gen Consoles. Nope. too long bruv.
Almost any PC with decent SSD and win7/8 boots faster.
Wow, so it is faster than my TV.
The "faster than TV" statement was from stand-by. Not a cold boot from off.
Haha, what sort of tv have you got???? :)
@LogicStomper - Old "Cathode Ray Tube" would be my guess. If you have a tv as slow as Niv you should not concern yourself with next gen consoles you have a bigger problem than 720p gaming.
Maybe your CRT TV but I can guarantee you that a modern flat screen is much faster than this. But then again its a developer kit so it isn't an issue. Nexus 7 2013
easy guys. fight the urge.
Could I get a BLT? :)
Black Large Tits? ;) Nexus 7 2013

<waitermode>absolutely sir, and your drink? i recommend our fresh squeezed lemonade....
Braided Lego turtle?
Its a Dev kit from what month and day exactly? And without patches too. If this was a retail XB1 leaked footage. Id be worried.
The video has been taken at London's Area One event last week. And no, there's nothing to worry about. Mind you, I wouldn't be worried even if it took 27 second to boot for retail units. I can definitely afford 27 seconds of my life for gaming, once in a while.
Apparently this build is from August if NeoGAF has it's facts straight.
dev kit, pointless to post
Legitimate question...aren't all Xbox One's supposed to be dev kits? Or do they actually have stand alone dev kits as well?
All Xbox One's can be turned into dev kits but I believe there is a process and probably a patch of some kind to load in other tools and thus turn it into a dev kit.
Right on. Thanks!
Most of the time the console will be in it's ultra low power standby mode. When you enter the room and say "Xbox On" to power it up it will only work in this mode. If it is completely turned off voice will not work.
Tom Warren confirmed on Twitter. This is footage taken in August. Its very old build and a Dev kit.
My megadrive was 5s.
The unit was on standby mode, when someone prompted the controller it then loaded up the main screen.
It's a sad day when people worry about how long it takes for something to boot up.
There is no fight here. This is nothing info. I'm getting very bored of the pointless tit for tat. Argue about games.
Jesus christ calm down the retail Xbox One won't take that long
People dont worry retail unit X1 boots equal or faster than the xbox 360.Tested!
I would assume this is from a completely shut off state, like before you just set it to hibernate or whatever it does (the always on deal). I would guess anyway.
XB1 booting into Dev unit has to do a lot of stuff mainly connect to Microsoft servers and begin a huge verification process. I think Most XB1 DK stay on for a LONG time so anyone complaining about a XB1 DK boot time needs something else to do in life.
Who cares, I play games not loading screens.
Ahhh....my eyes....F*K that ACID green color. :(
only 27 sec? very fast machine
Sloooooow. Even the PS4 devkit is faster.
