Feel sorry for the user if true, hope he gets a quick fix.

My Kinect died on me the 13th of this month. I contacted them same day, no hassles through xbox.com and received my new Kinect camera yesterday the 23rd.

They're way fast on this stuff. Ahhhhh.. feels good to have my voice commands back. I use them all the time, and it works great. (unless it's broke!)

TheBurger29947d ago

got mine broke right out of the DAY ONE box, wondering if i want to replace it or get ps4... hmm

IRetrouk947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

Know how you feel man, my ps4 makes a mad grinding noise when you either put a disc in or take one out, compleatly silent when running though and the discs are fine, getting a replacment from game in the new year when they have more stock thats not preordered, did phone sony but they said as its not damaging the discs and is running normal they wont replace it either untill stocks are better :-( on the bright side I could only find one other person who has the same problem as me, he is in america so at least its not widespread.

@theburger depends on what you want from the console, both have problems here and there but none seem to be widespread, I think you were just unlucky, like me :-/

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF947d ago

Lol.. how funny. I have disagrees for something that actually happen to me. Ha ha.. Only here can that happen. :)

Go check my site. I reported what happen to me when it all went down and when I got it back yesterday.

IRetrouk947d ago

Yeah I got loads of disagrees when I first mentioned my ps4 sounding like a lawn mower, funny how nobody asked me for proof though lol

MasterCornholio947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

So the article was right about tbs camera sensors as well. I didn't doubt them when they said that some disk drives were defective which is normal. But I had my doubts when they claimed that they had issues with Kinects sensor.

Anyways I'm glad that Microsoft did the 180 with Kinect having to be connected to the console. And I'm glad that they fixed your problem swiftly.

Prime157947d ago

My question to you is, why don't you think any Mic (headset, earbud, studio, ect) should have your voice commands?

I'm seriously just curious about why you are content with the fact that it has to be the Kinect (camera too) that enables you to VC.

I'm just asking, that's all. I'm not trying to start a fight; just curious.

irepbtown947d ago

I don't have the Xbox one, but a question for anyone that does; Can't you just buy a replacement power brick?

That would be quicker than waiting 2+ weeks.

Charybdis947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

At least the external power supply makes it easier to replace. Mind that both consoles ps4 and xb1 have experienced some isolated issues concerning power supply, disc drives etc. Neither has shown any mass problems yet.
I believe sony already has a 'how to'to detect if there are problems with power supply by looking at the ps4 ligth bar for the xb1 it seems like the external power supply will make noise or change collor.

madjedi947d ago

@midnight it is the poster that is getting the disagrees, not the post.

You have a post history, your judged on that in addition to your post.

It's neogaf, a place where people will write just about anything negative about XO cause it's cool to do so. I could write a post my XO burns and pink smoke comes out and people would believe it and we'd have an n4g article. Write something is wrong with ps4 and you gonna get banned. Neogaf is not a reliable source of news.

Whatever helps you sleep at night, ballseye.

TAURUS-555947d ago

keep on denying it...xbox1 is crap, thats the only truth.

otherZinc947d ago

Plug it in tight.
Problem solved.
Idiot!

Mosiac77947d ago

I have 2 XB1 and 1 PS4 and I have yet to have any issues with any of them. Maybe some users are doing something's wrong.

Blaze929947d ago

its funny when the response to a Xbox One rumor failing is: "Hopefully"

..the irony in that.

ziggurcat947d ago

The irony being that you jump into any Sony-related thread, and do the exact same thing while complaining about people that do it in xbox threads?

Irony, indeed.

Blaze929947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

@ziggurcat the hell are you talking about? Do you know me?

Omegasyde946d ago

@ziggurcat

I agree blaze929 is the n4gs biggest hypocrite. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but blaze constantly complains about n4g yet often comments. He was also a very strong defender of DRM.....

Is this an isolated issue? I haven't heard of this one before! Like the way the author added the whole sob story part of the users life as well, very X-Factor. Almost seemed like he added it to beef up a non story.

Funantic1947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

You'll only hear news like this on N4G where they try to gather all the bad news on Microsoft. You won't see this news on any major gaming site, only on sites never heard of. And NeoGaf have made it a mission in life to come with whatever negative info they can on the X1. I wouldn't trust anything they report.

Utalkin2me947d ago

Kind of like the RROD for the 360? It was only related to this site and unheard sites?

SpitFireAce85947d ago

Take ur bubble and exit that way ----->

Btw..look back at this site in 2007/2008 For
All the ps3 is doomed articles...;/

morganfell947d ago

Bubbles Spitfire. It was relentless. And I have never seen games attacked the in the manner which some PS3 exclusives suffered.

MRMagoo123947d ago

@spitfire/morganfell

I too remember that crap, i was here in 2007 it was like a friggin none tsunami of hate against the ps3 from every site known to mankind. Every xbox fanboy jumped at every thing they could like POG and theMart.

BallsEye947d ago

Well said. Kids here got nothing better to do than exchange these no source stories to feel more secure about their opinion (which they see as a fact).

The Great Melon947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

@SpitFireAce85 & morganfell

People think that the Xbox One is being lynched here, but compared to 2007 and 2008 it is quite tame. The flame wars ignited by people like TheMart and Zhuk were unyielding back then. It didn't help that this was 2 bubble systems ago when it took much less effort to achieve 10 bubbles and it was a simple matter to crush the opposition to 1 bubble. I still miss my 10 bubbles that I actually earned from calm discussion. :'(

Despite the fires, I do kind of miss those days as it was sort of fun to read the clashes from the big fanboys. Nowadays there aren't too many strong characters on N4G to follow. Oh well, I am just having a nostalgia rush here...

morganfell946d ago

I bookmarked plenty of those posts. It is humorous to see, just as I predicted, how many of those people closed their accounts and either left or came over to the dark side.

At the moment it seems isolated but probably affects a small percentage of the overall users.

Why has xbox closed it's blogs/forums????
