Trying to do just one simple thing seems to have 360 steps with Microsoft – why is the Xbox One’s functionality such a car crash?
God.. I'm sorry I read as much as I did Horrible article...
Yeah. MS is not perfect by any means but this guy complains like he got an atomic wedgie.
Honestly, how do you disagree with this? He's like that angry video gamer who reviews classic games!
Bloody ell...this guy wrote an article about trying to use a feature on a console that doesn't have that feature yet...riight.
What a silly piece. Seriously guys, don't give these flame baiters the clicks. They just spew the BS for income. Don't click this crap
I'm pissed my PS4 doesn't produce sparkling cider.
Just don't do what this chap did and write an article about your struggles.
Can I link the YouTube of me holding a cup to the disc slot for 18hrs, cursing there's not a drop in sight?
Screenshots are coming I believe in the next update or the one after. Looking forward to the transparent tiles in this next update too...
I have had transparent tiles for a while now and it really doesn't make much difference.
Ive got transparent tiles and they are freaking awesome!!! Makes a huge difference to the dash's look.
They make the dash look a lot better, and its nice you can see your background picture a lot better. Its not a huge thing but its nice.
I have the transparent tiles and they do make a difference. Make the dash look more cleaner and allows you to actually see your backround
Wait this feature isn't available yet. This article is horrible.
i think this guy have a ps4 and is not satisfied with it :)
I hope its as easy as the ps4.
Must suck to be a CallofDutyFan and know that the game gets more love on Xbox One with the timed DLCs and limitted edition hardware and such. Also there's the thing about the Xbox One controller, which is in my opinion, better suited for shooters than the DualShock 4.
I agree totally that the xbox one controller is much better than the dualshock 4. The set up is much better for shooters because of the asymmetrical analog sticks. The symmetrical sticks on the dualshock just dont feel right.
The arguments for asymmetrical sticks just don't hold any water. Your hands are symmetrical so no configuration of asymmetrical sticks will be optimal. If you prefer the sticks on top then they should both be there, likewise if you prefer the bottom position. Mixing the positions makes no sense, unless your primary goal is to design a controller that doesn't look like the competitions.
@Kneon The whole symmetrical argument is the lamest yet. You do know that your hands and arms can perform moves separate from each other right? And the 360/X1 left stick is usually, mainly for controlling your character in a 3D environment and guess what, the left stick of the Xbox controller is symmetrical with the buttons on the right. Making for the perfect alignment when playing 90% of todays games. The PS4 duelshock controller is not lined up with the buttons and that makes it very hard for me to control my character and press buttons because everything is asymmetrical and I get all confused because my hands aren't lined up with each other.... silliness.
And the right stick it for looking around/aiming in a 3D environment, so in a FPS the sticks are the main controls, not the face buttons. So how is the Xbox controller supposed to be the "best" for FPS when one of the sticks in not in the best position? As for your problem with the PS layout that is a problem with you being unable to adapt to different controller, it doesn't make the controller layout bad.
@gangsta: I hope you realize that you just made a symmetry argument immediately after you dismissed a symmetry argument... Both controllers are well-designed, and personally speaking, neither one of them is more comfortable than the other.
Its not about symmetry of the stick itself.. Your left thumb does nothing but move the stick.. Your right thumb however transitions to the face buttons frequently.. I believe it is optimal.. But its down to the users preference more then anything
@ kneon The argument holds water if you consider that the right thumbstick on BOTH controllers is not in the optimal, natural falling position of the thumb. The right thumb naturally falls on the buttons. So with the Xbox's asymmetrical design, you get 50% of the thumbsticks in an optimal position. Both are a compromise, but the asymmetrical design (originally from Dreamcast) provides both the comfort of natural thumb position for the left stick AND the comfort of symmetry for most gaming situations where the player is using buttons and movement stick at the same time. That's why people love the feel of it. (edit: Why did this create an entirely new comment rather than a reply??)
