I think he sold the previous ones, as he didn't see the point in them with a gaming PC. I guess he really wanted to play Perfect Dark :lol:

At least stripping the snap nonsense out of the main OS has made the speed of the thing more usable now. Still stutters and has to think about things from time to time but a lot of the frustration has been removed.

It's actually only my third :shifty: I wanted some Xbox One controllers for PC multiplayer so getting two of them, the console (for Perfect Dark :wub: ) and a digital copy of Forza Horizon 3 (which I wanted to play on PC but not enough to buy it because of the Windows Store) for £180 was a no brainer. I noticed that I also have Lost Odyssey so I'll give that a go at some point :toot:

I think the console performs better when it's set to instant on mode, as opposed to energy saving mode. It depends on how much you care about your electricity bill as opposed to a slightly faster - but still undoubtedly a poor and janky - OS.

I wonder if the OS on the new Xbox One X will be exactly the same as the One S version... or if extra features or smoother running will be possible?

I think it'll be the same OS going forward unfortunately :( but at least the next console has more powerful hardware, of which you'd assume a bigger footprint would be reserved for the OS versus the current console.

Since they got shot of the snap feature the biggest performance bottleneck is probably the actual Hard Drive. My storage probably has more individual files than most thank to Rock Band and it really cripples the system whenever the console wants to scan the storage. I think the One X will have a hybrid drive right? Versus the slow 5200RPM of the original Xbox One should also fix my issue there too.

Yeah, that'd be cool - maybe the superior tech will give the user interface a bit of a boost.

Just need to pick what to play first now :D

I think I may go Horizon 3, it was the last game I properly played on 360 and one of very few I actually got to the end of so seems like a good place to start as any.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

That is the game that, not having an XBO, I'm quite envious of. It looks great!

You'll soon get used to waiting for updates. Every time I turn mine on there seems to be yet another damn update I have to wait for. :x :lol:

Only did 2, one for the console and one for the controller. I also set power setting to keep it up to date, so hopefully it will do its updates between uses automagically.

It's looking good, Errkal :toot: . That white controller with coloured buttons looks so neat. Are you going to get a chance to have a play on it today?
