For future reference, this feature has now been added to the preview.


Thanks for the heads up, Rinks!

My console turned itself back on last night to update when I'd turned it off. Ended up turning the system off afterwards before I'd watched the intro video because it was late and I wanted to go to bed. Is there any way of watching it again? It seems super sleek so far. I can't get down to my pins, and it's just signed me out for no reason! Wouldn't even let me sign back in! I'm guessing it's still in the preview stages? :shifty:

What are you doing, Microsoft.

EDIT: It's just signed me out again and it can't connect to my wifi. What's happened with this? Is there like a forum anywhere where I can be looking for advice on whether other people are having these issues and why? Google is wholly unhelpful. It's totally forgotten that I always have it set to actually turn off, too. Why does it do that? Why be the most inefficient you can be, Microsoft?

EDIT 2: It claims it's connected to the internet now. Let's see if it actually has. ("Connected", yet it's still prompting me to connect to the internet on the dashboard...)

IT'S FINALLY WORKING

I've left the preview stage, it just ended up being too crazy with updates and it being wonky. New dash is lush though, can't wait to use it when its not half bolloxed.

Touch wood it all seems to be working now, but I know there's been lots of people complaining about party chat not working properly, so I'll see what happens with that a little later!

It’s a really good update, sound glitch meant I took it off but it was excellent speed and layout wise, pins in guide and using White isn’t mentioned but think it’s in it too. (It was in Preview)

They're changing the layout again? Christ :dread: I've only just got used to the current one they've changed to recently. At least it feels like it's only changed recently.

Webcam support is really cool, I only used kinect for that functionality so that completely removes the need for that peripheral and the £30 adapter for me :datass:

New Fall Update for Xbox One Available for Everyone Today

It’s been a busy and exciting summer for everyone at Team Xbox. Back in August we gave you a first look at the fall update for Xbox One, and we showed off the new Home, Guide and Community tabs. Since then, we’ve been working with Xbox Insiders to gather feedback, test and refine new features that we’re releasing worldwide starting today. As gamers, we like to play and watch content the way we want, with the people we want. With this update, our fans asked for more personalization options and we’ve put more control in their hands. Here’s a rundown of the new features.

You can personalize your “Home” more than ever before: You can…

Make Home uniquely yours. Add your favorite games, friends, Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and more directly to your Home screen with a new concept that we call blocks. Once you’ve added blocks, you can remove or change the order of the blocks as you see fit.
Have up to 40 pins! All these pins will appear in the Pin block on Home, as well as the Pins flyout in the new Guide!
Easily discover new things, such as friend activities, leaderboards, LFG posts, tips, quick links to Game Hubs, across both your console and Xbox Live at the top of Home.
Choose dark, light, or high-contrast theme option in Settings.

You’ll experience a fast, powerful and convenient Guide:

It’s now faster and easier to move left and right through horizontal tabs with the left thumb stick or bumpers.
When you bring up Guide while in an active party or broadcast, Guide will automatically open the party or broadcast section by default for faster access to controls.
New “Friends in games” flyout informs you of friends playing the same game.
Game invites will show up in the Multiplayer tab of the Guide.
The new Tournaments section in the Multiplayer tab of the Guide provides a quick portal into the official and community tournaments that you’ve joined. Enjoy more Xbox Arena tournament options with the addition of new titles.

Don’t worry about missing any actions when you step away from your console:

With the enhanced notification system, when your Xbox One is idle, time-sensitive activities and status are visible from far away.
The screen-dimming functionality has also been updated to better prevent screen ghosting, both when the screen is dimmed and when it’s showing notification snapshots of what’s happening on Xbox Live.
The newly redesigned Game Hub Welcome tab now features a summary of all the great content around the game on one page.
Profiles now enable faster access to recent activity. You can now easily manage who sees your activity feed content through the “Others can see your activity feed” privacy setting.
See more content at a glance with new Community feed, and view screenshots and game clips in an immersive, full-screen view.

Get a head start on Xbox One X (Launch Day Nov 7): Your console setup experience will be quicker for both new users and upgraders. There are new options to help save time when moving from one Xbox One to another (including Xbox One X), so you can get back to playing faster.

Transfer your games to an external drive so you can connect it to your new console and play immediately. Just unplug the drive from your current console, plug it in to your new one, and you’re ready to go.
Existing Xbox One owners can back up their games and console settings to an external drive so that they’re ready to be applied to the new console during setup.
Copy your games and apps over your home network from one console to another via network transfer.
Bulk transfer will allow you to select and transfer as many games as you want all at once.
You’ll be able to download 4K content for some games ahead of time to your Xbox One or Xbox One S, so that you’re ready to transfer Xbox One X Enhanced games to your new console on day one.
You can easily discover Xbox One X Enhanced titles in the Store, and developers can optimize game delivery by making sure that 4K assets are installed only for Xbox One X.
You’ll be able to sort and filter your Installed and Ready to Install games library to find Xbox One X Enhanced titles.

Discover and Create Engaging Content:

The Mixer tab on the dashboard will now display broadcast previews so you can see what’s going on in popular streams before you join them.
If your bandwidth supports a 1080p broadcast, we will upgrade it automatically for your Xbox One family of devices.
The Broadcast & Capture tab in Guide is also now more deeply integrated with Mixer. Once you start a Broadcast, a new flyout will appear that includes your profile stats.
You can also use a USB webcam to broadcast yourself alongside your gameplay on Mixer, or to have a 1:1 or group video chat with friends using Skype.
GameDVR will now be able to capture up to 4K/HDR screenshots and game clips on Xbox One X, and you’ll be able to capture content directly to an external hard drive.

Other big features include…

You can get personalized tips & help, smart notifications, community tips, & troubleshooting through the new Xbox Assist App.
You can also change your console language to select right-to-left languages – Arabic & Hebrew – in the Xbox Settings menu.
You will also see a new Microsoft Store logo and name in the Xbox dashboard, providing you with a simpler experience when you download and buy the latest products and content from Microsoft and its partners, including hardware, games, entertainment, apps and more.
It’s been an incredible journey for the entire team at Xbox as we worked to bring you this update. Thanks as always to our fans and Xbox Insiders for the valuable feedback. Be sure to keep letting us know what you think at Xbox feedback. We’ll have even more great features coming very soon! See you on Xbox Live.

Pretty good deals this week on Xbox one. Over on 360 it's The Rockstar Sale #3,423

I might pick up the ultimate edition of Witcher 3 with all the DLC as it's getting an X update. £14 I think it was which is nuts for so much content and to support a great independent developer (from what I've read about them). The only thing is I'm starting to amass a backlog. I think I must be the last person on this forum to finally fall in to this trap.

Anyone know what happened to the digital refund program they were trialling through the website a few months ago? Bought the Witcher 3 GOTY edition, and didn’t realise that the save from the disc version doesn’t carry over :fp: Was hoping I could just put in for a refund on the website but I can’t see the option

You have to go to web chat with a support peep they will then get it sorted within a couple of minutes.

Pretty sure they introduced automatic digital refunds didn't they? Did that ever leave preview?

It's on the main xbox.com website, you have to go onto your purchase history. As long as you fit certain criteria (played for less than two hours, bought less than a week ago, played at least once) then the option to claim a refund should be there. I have nothing to test it with currently, but it definitely was an option at some point.

Yeah, it was definitely being trialled but I can’t see the option any more. Would make it much easier if I could just click a button and get a refund!

Will try with the webchat guys when I get home, thanks guys!

I got my Mass Effect Andromeda pre-order refunded when the reviews went up showing what a horror show it was via xbox.com chat window.

Incredible bargain here:

Curve Digital's just-released "Gimme 5" bundle, which includes:
Human Fall Flat
Manual Samuel
Dear Esther
The Flame in the Flood
Serial Cleaner


I've got four of them, and they're mostly brilliant.

The bundle price is £59.99, which is steep, but it's on sale for 2 weeks for just £18.

This is the death of intelligence
