Makes sense! Price is definitely the downside of going all digital. I imagine it will take ages for digital content to go on sale whereas Forza was already $40 on Amazon. I really want to be all digital with the Xbox One though so it is what it is.
Just buy the game on sale at Amazon, you can still install and play it without a disc just like a digitally downloaded game.

Yep I tried all of those things, none worked. I did the thing with MS support where they send one out first and then I send mine back so I'll have a replacement in 3-5 days (in a box they send with the replacement with postage paid). Not bad :) Had to give a CC# in case I didnt send the other one back - the price for a new kinect = $150 (if that wasn't known)


Took the wind out of my sails a bit but I obviously can still play games and 3-5 days isn't bad at all. Still enjoying the system.
Yeah, that is a bummer. At least you can play all your games, still.

BTW I think something weird is going on with your achievements. It's showing you have none on Smartglass. I just see some Forza uploads and that's all.

What's the re-playability like for Power Star Golf?

I know it has some RPG elements which intrigues me, I'm just curious if it will last me a bit, something to play in between other titles.

its got some decent difficulty to it. mastering each characters unique abilities is fun. buying packs of new items and seeing what you get is cool as well (im mostly hunting down different clothing sets). rivals mode (like forza) should keep you chasing leaderboards for as long as you want/can handle.

its a fun game. shame about demos, but id recommend it 100 percent if that means anything

I agree. The overall game has had a lot of time and love put into it. The Secrets and Unlocks section, they put a lot of effort into it. Everything except the gameplay lol
The racing/dodging sections had poor controls, the fighting portions were button mash sections, the shooting sections were just controlled with a cursor, and the QTE were just... QTEs. This game has no reason to exist. LOL

Off to bed, I'll see about getting a new OT for January up tomorrow or ASAP.

Looking for:
Main tile
Sub tiles (probably launch exclusives, or old main)
Features (Can be a meme or joke)

Anything else that you believe is relevant; tips and tricks, recaps, etc.

My xbox one isn't recognizing my kinect. I tried a bunch of different things people have suggest around the net.


Total fucking bummer :(
That sucks Mort. Crazy a replacement is $150 out of warranty. WiiU gamepad is same if I recall. I had to get one from Nintendo.

My buddy bought XBO at launch and just plugged Kinect in yesterday for the first time. He described a similar experience I had him pull the power cord and cold boot and it worked. Your experience makes me wonder now.

I'm getting notifications. Odd.


My xbox has been weird since I opened it. Last night I bit into a piece of raw broccoli, it was the only sound in the room, and kinect opening the settings.

It's being worked on. I've heard they expect it fixed before titanfall.
That's good news, I'm really enjoying the Xbox One more than I expected (Mainly a PC/PS4 guy) and that's really the only complaint I have about the system right now.

Got a Xbone because I had to send my PS4 in for repairs for something to pass the time, really ended up enjoying it.

You switched from the PS4 version to the XB1 version?

But yes, that sharpening filter needs to go ASAP. At the very least tone it down. It's kinda obnoxious what it's doing.
I'm borrowing it until the end of the week, when I get a new console from Sony.

This version is fine, filter aside. It's the one egregious difference to me so far.

Are there any plans to change the patching system ? Having to download 5GB for DR3 and 6GB for Forza was maddening to say the least , especially when I couldn't even play DR while it downloaded the patch.

I got an Xbox One for Christmas.

I have never in my life experienced a more under baked, half finished product. Holy cow, you guys. it BARELY works. It crashes all the time. I'm no PS4 fanboy, I have both, but it's super depressing. It'll probably be great in 6 months. But I only turn this thing on for fitness anymore (if it even turns on. Kinect is reaaaaaaally hit or miss.)

The console crashes or the games? If it's the console, sounds like you need to return it as it may be faulty.

Your console is faulty, my xbox hasn't crashed on me once (games have though, fuck you battlefield). I would've expected to have had at least one if it was a universal issue.

As for thread title, keep it simple

You must have a faulty unit. I have almost no issues outside of normal growing pains.

When setting up your Kinect, make sure you turn up your speakers as loud as the Kinect will let you. I am at 95% hit now.

Maybe thats what I'm doing wrong with it. I'll try that.

In terms of the crashing, I had to a "we dont know what happened" error a few times, and last night i turned it off,and it hung on a black screen (still getting a video signal) until i actually unplugged it from the wall. Crazy stuff.

I did not have one crash or any problems with mine what so ever. I'm not using Kinect though.
