Xbox One Launch Thread [Thread being archived 1/1/14]

is there a list of the command for kinect in french?

i hope it's still "xbox on" :(
Nope, it's "Xbox démarrer". :/
And "Xbox, ancrer internet explorer" instead of "snap".

"show my stuff" >> "afficher mes éléments"

I really dislike the way they translated it, it's silly and ugly.

Oh god, wtf? This one takes the cake. Smh. It's like they thought we were in Quebec or something.

"Xbox, démarrer!"

Like it's a goddamn car or something... As I said, corny as hell!

demarrer, ancrer? at least they could have kept those two in english
 
Thanks.

Still don't believe it to be honest and just hope that he is confused. It would render Kinect unusable if you set your system language to anything other than a language supported by your region. So if my region is Germany (only German is supported) and my system language is English it will show me English descriptions on screen and expects me to guess what the stuff is in German so I can then say it in German?

I somehow doubt that very much.
 

PAULINK

I microwave steaks.
so more info on microsoft store launch night, first 50 people in line get....backpacks?

Would totally go if it were closer but I know better, it's probably gonna be one of those sinch packs. That and I'm already going to be at a launch "party" at gamestop.

Edit: It's says gear though including a backpack, now I kinda want to go even though i'm not buying anything there haha.

Can I get in line and get a backpack without buying anything. I was on my local Microsoft store when it open, so I could see the new Windows Phones and end up with Covers, Car Chargers and 2 tickets for an Enrique Iglesias concert.
 
go to gamestop and ask if they have any extras.
Yeah, I guess I'll just have to wait until the day of. I'll probably call up Best Buy and Gamestop at 4pm and see what each of them say, then determine where I line up for for 8 hours.

God, I really hate that I don't have a pre-order. PS4 launch was so smooth. Wish it didn't take me so long to fall in love with the Xbox One.

Well I would be relieved if he's wrong too, not holding my breath though.

I'll tell you what I tell everyone else when it comes to preorders: when in doubt, Amazon.

Seriously, they don't charge until it ships. Really hard to go wrong on preordering the second something is announced when you won't be charged.

Oh I know. I did my PS4 through Amazon, and have been using Amazon for 4 years now. There really was no reason to not pre-order the Xbox One and wait until later to cancel. But I was so sure of myself that I wouldn't like the Xbox One that I didn't bother.

What a foolish decision that was.

Quoting this again because I just saw the thread on GAF here about it. Holy shit. I can't even set my system to English because it will then not offer me Germany as my region setting.

God damn, that right there is a deal breaker so close to launch. Because I can just imagine that games will still rely on your system language setting, which means I would have to play my games in German.

WTF....
 
About the Kinect language. Since I'm importing a French Xbox One to Belgium (Flanders, only half of the country speaks French), I can still use English voice commands if I just put my Xbox Live Marketplace region to the UK, right?
 
A few questions for you guys:

1. Do I have to use Kinect at all?

2. Will Day One boxed be available on launch if I walk into a shop?

Just trying to work out where I could get a console.
1-Microsoft went out of it's way to ensure kinect is not necessary but what I understand is that it vital for a smooth experience. Like recognizing your face and logging you in automatically.

2-If I know correctly, Day One editions are 98-99% sold out. I myself haven't found one anywhere and even regular ones are all sold out on Gamestop.

Yeah but you can't buy anything unless you have a valid UK credit card or an UK PayPal account.

Appreciate the response, does the patch on day one allow me not to use it then?

Anything is possible, make a few calls and think positive.
There can be miracles, if you believe.
 
So I have no idea what time to goto the microsoft store on thursday. Mine is in the mall, so they have to close at 9PM and reopen at 10PM for the launch. I've also never been to a launch for a console so any suggestions? I asked the MS guys and they had no clue what to tell me.

I have no classes on thursday/friday, and would like to be one of the first to leave with my console..any suggestions are welcome.

Don't have an XB1 preordered and this doesn't have the whole "Order after 15 October won't be guaranteed until after Christmas" malarkey. While the PS4 page DOES have that warning.

I really want to have a console day 1 :(
There's a CONTACT US button at the top of the page there. Perhaps click it and ask.

Nice!

Let's get this going again!
