Issues I am finding with the console so far.

1. No way to see how full your HDD is. (MS says this is a new feature and not an oversight)
2. No way to delete from your HDD. (MS says this is a new feature and not an oversight)
3. Can't seem to find how you stream music and movies from the pc. (have sorted this, though it all has to be done via my pc, where I could navigate it all through my xbox before.)
4. Kinnect works very well though this can be ruined by spells of having to repeat yourself a few times lol.
5. Not had my email for my free killer instinct- now assuming the worst.
6.You tube app is slightly glitchy, freezes on videos, or menus disappear.
7. would appear you can't send voice messages anymore (to other xbox one users).

Likes.
1. The console, looks pretty damn good under my tv, and the size is irrelevant as looks small when in with all my other stuff.
2. Love the game cases, more compact, nice styling.
3.voice commands, though as I have said, success with these is a mixed bag.
4.console has auto recognised me every single time so far.
5. Love the controller now I have had more time on it.
6.Console setup, although a lengthy process, I found it user friendly and exciting lol.
7. Better connection tools, telling you upload and download speed and NAT type.
8. It is nice and quiet.

I got the console with 7 games so hot me up if you guys wanna play something, I have fifa though am still on the fence as to whether to sell this and get a second controller.

Haha, sturm!!!!!

I sorted my issue out by disconnecting my router (strange i know) and it was a lot quicker. Anyone notice bf4 was available to play after 9% yet ghosts was 51%?!

Now to play some games!!!!!

Ummm Ryse is taking a while and looks like it has to be a 100% install before I can touch it.

So i went to load up ghosts and it deleted itself from my hard drive!

Played some fifa and forza so far and both have really impressed me so far. The impulse triggers on forza are really cool and i am looking forward to them being used in games in the future.

I expected a few issues I bet most of the things like to find out how much hard drive space you have will be fixed with a patch.

shame day one achievement did not give you any Gamerscore. Say a few hundred points!

I like the fact you can see what achievements your friends got recently

going to spend more time on this system Saturday night

I did use Kinect to add my Fifa game, had to put the paper close to the Kinect though for it to read it but it worked quite well Very Happy

I havent had to have the codes too close to the kinect to use them, all worked really well.

Anyone else think the developers have gotten lazy with compressing the files? 40GB+ for a lunch title and 1.2GB updates to be able to play the game to begin with! If its going to be like this all the way through the cycle I am going to be very disappointed and annoyed. With 500GB at this rate, MS are going to have to add external hard drive support in the next few months! Plus with my awful internet speed it takes ages for it to download so I have nothing to do on my new console but watch a progress bar go up.

Just an update, been playing Ryse for a while now, and I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying it, amazing graphics, and no lie at one point I thought I was watching a movie for a second.

Gameplay is not too bad as I wasn't expecting anything different from what it has been.

Been playing mainly forza today and safe to say, I am loving it! The feel of the cars and the graphics!! Very Happy Only in the 2nd series of races but been playing for 3 hours at least!

Also played a bit of Ghosts, enjoying it but i am disappointed at how it looks and it still being 12 player on the standard game modes!

not sure if its me but when people switch on does it not pop up when someone is online. I noticed one minute 10 friends are online then the next 18 and no notification Surprised 

Perhaps its been ages since I played forza but on the few minutes I played on it the controls were horrible!

saying that when I play one racing game then go to another it does take me sometime to adjust. going on it in a minute see if I can get used to it.

No there is no notification for when friends come online which is annoying but im sure there will be a patch to add the option of it though.

I thought the controls for forza were really good. Turns out ive played it for 5 hours already but didnt notice it had been that long!

I played against Righteous Soul's drivitar yesterday on forza.

Tell me if any of you play against mine, should be online soon.

I've noticed even on the xbox web site it does not mention what Xbox One games you have played, can't shake the impression this is something else not finished but the smartglass has the info as well as game play time. That's good will be able to tell how many hours you have played your games.

I've played against yours quite a few times already Willow. Doesn't seem too aggressive at the moment, sure that will change! Do watch out for Adam's though, been rammed off the road several times by his drivatar!

You can also view the hours played on the Xbox, can't remember where I found it though!

has anyone found out where recent players is? on 360 you could see a list of people you have played online with seems to have gone?

can't believe how quiet XBO is! 360 was a real pain playing games from disc I suppose the lack of ram meant it was always loading from disc!

Havent really looked yet tbh. Doesnt bother me if the option isnt there as I had no reason to view it on 360 so dont see why I would have one on the One.

just had a bit of a panic, the sound went on my XBO started buzzing, switched it off and back on again seems to have solved it, probably just a glitch

I tell you one thing the 60fps in BF4 REALLY makes a difference in multiplayer! so much smoother than BF3 on consoles! Very Happy 

I'm sure the battlelog is not updating for me for some reason

edit I think its updated in the Battlelog app
