    Don't let the logistics of a worldwide launch get in the way of a good moan It's not as if Sony will have launched in more countries worldwide than Microsoft come the end of November (32 to Microsofts 21). Or the fact the two week grace as meant the yanks have troubleshooted the system for us and we already have an updated firmware for meny of the bugs they've found.

    Edit: or for that matter that their are 193 UN member states. What do the other 172 think of Microsofts attude to a "Worldwide Launch"? The more interesting one of course is, what do the Japanese think of Sony making them wait until next February?

    Poor Japan, Microsoft are ignoring them because the 360 didn't really sell in Japan. Sony are delaying because they have no Japanese games.

    DTS still works just not DD, so depends on your amp, modern stuff will support DTS. Most people just use HDMI anway.

    XBL support did confirm no surround sound over HDMI in, stereo only.


    Amazon shipping seems to be happening, a few people are picking them up too. Happy gaming!

    Just be thankful that Microsoft haven't adopted the Vista approach to HDMI which was to treat any amp or receiver that was inbetween your pc and the TV as an 'Unauthorised device' and subsequently refused to play.
    And Microsoft at the time was making a big play on how good Windows Media Center was!
    It's a shame nobody told the graphics team.

    Just to be clear:

    If the 5.1 sound originated from something (360/PS3/PS4/WIIU/SATBOX) plugged into the HDMI IN on the xboxone it'll come out through the HDMI OUT as 2.0.

    If the 5.1 sound originated from xboxone it'll come out through HDMI OUT as 5.1

    No DD 5.1 via optical out, only DTS. Most "surround sound" headphones don't support DTS.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Amazingly, two friends of mine have 'won' Xboxes direct from MS to be delivered at the end of the month!
    A brilliant move by MS because as a direct result I will inherit a free PS3 !!! (do they work with KB/mouse? I'm too old to learn newfangled controls, the Wii was bad enough)

    The system does, the games (apart from one or two) don't.

    Nearly every full price xboxone game has additional transactions. Bit unfair to call them microtransactions, there is nothing micro about paying 32 for a Forza5 car.

    Looks like a mistake in the pricing for Forza5 in this example taken from a stream, but to have this as standard in full price games is terrible.



    Updating the xboxone without internet access:

    A file was posted online incase emergency manual recovery was needed. Some people worked out that the file could be used to update the system without connecting to the internet first. The file and info have been pulled by MS:

    You should be able to find this elsewhere.....

    Is it me or is it easier to buy 100 currency for a euro multiple times then buy one of the packs? 1EUR for 100 x 4 to make 400 for 4EUR or pay nearly 5EUR for 375?

    And yeah it's disgusting. About time people started getting Microtransaction weary TBH. I am, otherwise I'd still be subbed to STO but they want a transaction and more on top. :/
