I think Microsoft made a strong argument for the One coming off E3. I had sworn off the One up until pretty much E3. The game lineup (especially Halo Master Chief Collection) just looks stronger right now. The funny thing is when I decided to get it my original impulse was to get the kinect-less version but after really thinking about it I ended up dropping the extra $100 for the kinect version (free Forza also made for a strong argument...). I'm really enjoying it and even my fiancée who was skeptical about needing yet another video game system is enjoying all the kinect/voice control functions for TV.

Aside from not even giving it a chance:
Yeah it's so sad how many people even keep to the age old features of the system. Research that shit folks., like 24 hour online checks.

I'm just waiting for the inevitable Halo controller (to go with my clear UNSC controller), then I'll pick up a spare.

I know there's an update for headsets, maybe plug it in and update the controller if you haven't already.

If that's the case, do the fix all: Hard reboot.

TV stuttering? Hard reboot.

App not acting properly? Hard reboot.

Console turns into a Decepticon and tries to kill you? Hard reboot. Or some well places 5.56 rounds . . . but I'd go hard reboot first. Consoles are expensive.


To hard reboot, hold down the power button on the console for 8+ seconds. Then, when it turns off wait about 30 seconds, and then press the power button again to power it back on. When it turns on, it should take longer to load than normal (because it didn't go into Standby mode). It should fix about 99% of glitches.

Haha, I always just powered off and unplugged the power supply but that works too. I played Zoo Tycoon for my visiting nephew and thought the game was glitching because there was no sound. Then I remembered I had turned all the sound, music and sfx, down because Zoo Tycoon was the game that I played when I listened to gaming podcasts.

Alright now that I have both of my Xboxes plugged in via HDMI into the TV, (I was using VGA before for the 360) I need a new pair of headphones/headset. Heard the XO Fours are good, any recommendations?
