Really excited for the SA launch
Me too, cant wait for it to land in South Africa. Think we can expect some great things from the XB1.
Do you think it can compete with the PS4 having such a big headstart in South Africa?
silicur: Does it matter? You now have the choice of either one or both! As Sony used to say "this is a marathon and not a sprint".
@Sillicur, what does it matter if it competes with PS4 or not? Those guys want it, nuff said.
A few of those I wasn't aware of at all. Keep those new features coming MS! We want functionality... (obviously applied in a meaningful and straight forward way)
Same here I've already preordered it, can't wait for sunset overdrive and master chief collection
Don't forget Destiny and Advanced warfare... and titanfall... and quantum break... and FH2.... and Ryse... and Deadrising :)
what games u excited about?
Some cool tips in there I didn't know about.
Great read thank you, did not know about most of these
"What do you think of the list? " - Quite poor given that three of these "lesser known" features of XB1 where just recently released. With one only yesterday. Amazing how they can be "lesser known" when they are the stand-out features so a recent update. Both Kinect as a universal remote and spilt screen detection were actually advertised during the launch of XB1. Really this is more like one lesser known feature (kinect split screen detection).
Lesser known or not, I think most of us can agree that those features are impressive nonetheless.
Am not disagreeing with that hence why I only talked about them being lesser known which I don't agree with as explained above.
Lesser known does not mean they never mentioned it.. just that it is a less known/talked about feature. I would argue that is true, as I had no idea about the seat switch feature, and I read a lot about this stuff.
Thats the whole point. Most people dont know about them yet.
DLNA isn't even possible with the media player app. Not yet anyhow "USB only currently". So instead of a lesser known feature it is nonexistent. You can use playto on Windows devices for DLNA though which is an actual lesser known feature.
Playto or not it's still DLNA. I play all the media on my NAS using an app on my phone to initiate playback on my Xbox. Works perfectly. It's actually more convenient than browsing the server on the Xbox would be and it plays most formats.
I didn't say it wasn't, I also use it often. Just was pointing out the article had false info
I wonder if they can implement a "Download album artwork" feature. Similar to windows media player... or itunes. Would make for a much prettier interface dont you think?
How does the smart glass recording work? I just assumed it'd give you a button to press that performs the exact same function as saying "Xbox record that" (ie your xbox still saves the clip). Article talks about saving storage space, implying the clip is saved to the phone. Does Smart Glass bring anything new to the table here, or are they mistaken?
