Hopefully this can fix some of the problems!

True_Samurai1722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )

Yeah you're right oh wait you don't have an x1 -_-

Hicken1722d ago

What does that have to do with his sentiment? Because he doesn't have an Xbox, that changes his desire that any problems with the system be fixed?

I've got very little intention of getting an XB1, myself, but that doesn't mean I don't want any problems to be resolved.

Geez, some people are just TOO defensive...

LexHazard791722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )


Im wondering if what he said offended you and that why you had to respond! Let face it Sasuke is a Sony fanboy born and bred just read his commments. And so are you! So excuse other gamers that might take anything you guys say with a grain of salt anytime you comment on an xbox article, be it good or bad! guys bad mouth xbox one all day yet have no hands on experience with it. Im guilty to, no experience with either PS4 or XB1 cant wait to get both tho!!

@Hicken So let's say I don't own a Toyota Camry neither do I plan on getting one...ever, why should I care about any problems the Toyota Camry has/had and that are going to be fixed?

AceBlazer131722d ago

Cause if a damn toyota camry breaks down on your commute it f"""" your whole day up.

"Geez, some people are just TOO defensive..."

Double Standard much?

look at your comment.

Besides you really didn't care about the article you just wanted to make your defensive statement.

Septic1722d ago

Moving swiftly on topic:

The update needs to come before Titanfall comes out. Thats when a lot od people are going to jump on the X1 and the problems aren't sorted out then, I expect a lot of complaints.

MasterCornholio1722d ago

I dont see why its bad that he wishes the problems to be fixed. I mean if Microsoft fixes the issue with party chat then Xbox One owners will be a lot happier with their console.

GuruMeditation1722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )

You know, sometimes you'd be better off taking positive comments at face value, I mean what harm could it do? So long as paranoia reigns, nothing will change. I'm a PS4 and PC gamer; but above all else a video game enthusiast of three decades, so regardless of ownership, I want nothing but the best for XBox One. Let's take all the pinches of salt we like, but let's not pretend it's doing anything other than perpetuate negativity. Good on Sasuke, Cornholio and Hicken for rising above the playground.

JeffGUNZ1721d ago

@ Hicken

Hell must have frozen over because I agree with you. Their are issues that need improvement; the party system, no battery indicator, no notifications when friends jump on...No one said it's broken, but XiSasukeUchiha is right, improvements will help make it better.

dantesparda1721d ago

Wow you MS fanboys are touchy, talk about sensitive and jumpy, jeesh! Neither one of them said anything bad, and all of youse jumped on them like they were talking sh1t.

And i cant believe basic things like a battery indicator or how much HDD space you have used up/have left are missing

redwin1721d ago

I think that, Titan Fall is the re-launch of the xbone and I can't wait. I just don't know if I should download the game or buy the disk. I'm leaning toward download because it makes it easier to launch the game.

Hicken1721d ago

@All: Will you feel better if I say I hope all your crap breaks out of warranty and you have to replace everything you own out of pocket?

Too bad. I'm not that type of person. Even if I personally hated each and every person on this site, I'd still never wish ill on any of you. That's not in my nature.

Sorry to disappoint you guys.

"Geez, some people are just TOO defensive..."

Says the guy who can't accept a person who has a less than stellar opinion about MGS.

I love how you always tell xbox fanboys to calm down and not take things serious but you are the first to fly off the handle when someone or anyone talks about your precious Sony.

The double face standards you Sony fanboys display on this site has to have set world records.

"focus on fixing a number of issues with the Xbox Live service on the console, alongside other system fixes."

No way! You mean the "flawless" Xbox Live has service issues?

I'm more interested in what upgrades will be in the update, like if any requested features will be added and which ones.

Waiting For the same info from Sony about when their update will happen and what will be included.

Starbucks_Fan1722d ago

damn i just bought a used black one today. the white one looks really sexy to me.

ThatEnglishDude1722d ago

You managed to find a used one already? Jesus.

theWB271722d ago

"You managed to find a used one already? Jesus."

What does that even mean? You don't think systems are being sold to stores after 2 months? Or being bought off the internet ala Craigslist?

Utalkin2me1722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )


Not only can you find them used. You can find them new one on shelves like crazy.

norman1231722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )

drop the fanboy shit. it is getting bored.

PS4isKing_821722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )

@englishdude Gamestop is selling used ps4s too in case you don't's not just x1 troll.

JasonKCK1722d ago (Edited 1722d ago )

You can find hundreds of X1's and PS4's on craigslist just in my city alone http://kansascity.craigslis... Strange how the PS4 is supposed to have stock issues but there are plenty to choose from on craigslist. Plenty of X1's also available http://kansascity.craigslis...

Rockstar1721d ago (Edited 1721d ago )

@ Norman123

I disagree.
I still find it very entertaining :)

On Topic...I am a little old fashioned/boring. I like all my electronics black and sexy!

VENOMACR12271721d ago (Edited 1721d ago )

Right, because NO ONE trades in a PS4. No GameStop, Craigslist, or eBay has any used PS4, only X1's are being traded in.

Why are people so stupid?

Rockstar1721d ago


Because the internet

Yeah that white looks better

Rockstar1721d ago (Edited 1721d ago )

Wrong reply

Ced2141722d ago

I've always liked contrasts between PS and Xbox. I'll get the ps4 and a white xbox, if my wallet stops crying that is.

colonel1791722d ago

I will definitely buy a white xbox!

Vegamyster1722d ago

White looks much better but i'll wait until they make a Kinect-less bundle, $500 is too much considering it's weaker then the PS4.

StealthPandemic1722d ago

They won't. Okay, stop asking for it. THEY WON'T!

Deividas1722d ago

Right....because MS have NEEEEVER gone back on something they said before...

DeadMansHand1722d ago

They will. I'm not ripping the current system by saying this either. It makes sense. Sure, if sales take off there is no need but even with the decent sales so far I'm sure ms expected more. All you have to do is read people's comments on gaming sites and it's easy to see they would sell a LOT more with a kinectless sku. I'm willing to bet they are already working on it.

I'll buy one when they do and so will half of neogaf, kotaku, ign, etc.

VENOMACR12271721d ago

I'll wait until the price of the PS4 comes down too. Spending $400 on a system with no games doesn't appeal to me. Sure it's more powerful but if theirs no games for it now, no point in buying it now.
