I have got used to the new dashboard now although I did like it a lot more before this last update, rare replay is a odd one because they are all mainly xbox 360 games running on the xbox ones backward compatibly so install separately, I did stop it installing and then just installed the ones I wanted, I do like the xbox one, its my main console, I have not been on the wii u or ps4 in months

I bought my second XBONE this year after selling my close to launch one due to the lack of games on it and now the same has happened after picking this XBONE in a sale along with my work discount for the good at best Halo 5 and the GOTY quality Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Now I've done my 10 anticipated Xbox exclusive games and the next one to come out that interests me is Quantum which is April that's 5 months after RotTR.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRlSOeq ... e=youtu.be

And a few on that list you can see are coming to PC which may run on my laptop (it could run Witcher III at low) that I'm now thinking of selling my current XBONE as those games aren't really enough for me to keep my XBONE knowing I can get what I paid for it from a friend who will use it all the time and what Sony & Nintendo systems (that's without looking at VR & NX) have coming in 2016.

I'm doing the same videos but for the exclusives on the other systems and the PlayStation family for instance has nearly 40 that I narrowed down 10 where the XBONE only had 12 to get down to 10, you can say quality over quantity but looking at April for instance with games we know that are coming which includes a Xbox exclusive Quantum Break which looks great but that same month theres Ratchet & Clank, Star Fox Zero & Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and those 3 I'll much sooner buy, play & spend my time with then Quantum Break.

I don't know if someone like Rich who I gathers has most of the systems and from a post above has played his XBONE a lot, that he may have this same issue you can only buy & play so many games. Having all the systems is great that you can play Halo, Zelda & Uncharted but it's again having the time to play them all along with the multiformat and is it worth going 12 months only to play 12 games in the case for me looking at the XBONE and that's if I even do play them all.

I don't need the money but just seems a bit of a shame it sat there for what is going to be at least 5 months collecting dust before the next time I would maybe use it and then I'm not a fan of doing so after some not so great games along with a terrible UI & controller, I do have a sour taste in my mouth with Xbox since about 2009 and nothing seems to make me think it will improve going forward.

I am the same when it comes to not liking consoles doing nothing, I had a Wii U at launch but sold it due to me not playing it when the Xbox One and PS4 came out, but then had to buy another Wii U when Mario Kart 8 came out, but now I dont play my Wii U at all again, I also dont play my PS4 ever and was only bought to play The Last Of Us, I do however play my Xbox One everyday

Really and you own a PS4, that shocks me, guess you didn't have a PS3 then and maybe not a fan of Japanese stuff & Sonys IPs.

As I know people prefer the controller and friends on the XBONE but otherwise it baffles me as I'm not a whole 1080p 60fps fanboy but if you give me a game and go there both £40 & this one runs better and this one doesn't.

I'm going for the one that runs better, be it PS4, XBONE or Wii U (in the case of Rayman Legends).

I've been thinking of getting an xbone for Scalebound later but right now it has nothing going for it since I already went PS4 for Bloodborne.

Even then I don't think it will have much going for it.

On that note, Scalebound release has been delayed to 2017.

Thank God...?

I don't know how to feel about this. On one hand delayed Scalebound. On the other maybe the Xbone will have stuff by then.

Agree with Met, as like I said and shown in my video that's one of the few games I'm looking forward to on the XBONE and one of the main reasons why I would maybe keep it but now if the delay.

How much will I be able to get a XBONE for in 2017 and will have library of more then two good games like now and NieR Automata on PS4 for that Platinum goodness in 2016.

got my xbox one back from my brother about a week ago and already it's shot straight up to being my main console again; i have no clue why, because i've always bought multi-format games on PS3/PS4, and until now my PS4 was my main console, but sweet baby jebus do i love that xbox controller, and just the look of the console itself. i don't even mind the new UI, even if it does baffle me as to why they didn't just stick with the post-winter dashboard. like, why.

I don't get the look of the console bit, you say you like that's cool but some have said when it was first shown it looked like a VHS player and same with the first PS3 it looked like a George Foreman Grill which I could car less about and most systems will go in a entertainment systems as well (mine are on show) as long as it plays games what does it matter what it looks like.

I dont care what it looks like but what is great about it is just how quiet it is, plus the chargeable controller battery lasts for ages once charged

I do agree with this, I thought from when it was first announced it looked like a VHS player and I still do to this day, but my God is it quiet when playing! I completely forgive it for taking an age to install the games before I can play. The 360 controller was a work of genius too and I never thought MS could beat it but damn, was I wrong! There's not a great deal of difference between the two, more like tweaks really, but they've absolutely nailed it - it's superb to use. My only gripe is the Xbox button is ridiculously bright when playing in the dark and when your playing local multiplayer there's no way of telling who's player 1, 2 etc.

I would of said the other way around the 360 controller and the S-Type before that were great then MS have ruined the almost perfect 360 controller with the XBONE controller.

Also my XBONE is gone, it will take a lot for MS to get me back again.

I've given them plenty of money over the years since the OG Xbox (the best Xbox) and they bring gamers nothing.

It's a bit late, but I'd just like to thank everyone who beta tested Rise of The Tomb Raider on behalf of the Playstation Nation.

So I'm having an issue with Rise of the Tomb Raider.

I completed it late on Friday night (15th) and the 'Price of Truth' achievement for 125G didn't unlock. I Googled why not and found multiple other posts saying something like you had to wait 48 hours for it to do so (something about contacting both Square and MS's servers?), but anyway here I am over a week later and still it isn't showing. In fact according to my achievement list I'm also missing the following;

Renegade - 5
A Trusty Old Friend - 10
The Price Of Truth - 125
Secret Achievement - -
Paying Respects - 10

Under all of these the phrase "Done! Unlocking..." is showing if I use the achievement pin while the game is running. If the game isn't running and I go to the achievement section, there's just a padlock icon indicating a locked achievement. And to make matters worse, last night I 100% my save file.

Can anyone tell me what's going on?


Thanks.

This happens a lot to me, all you can do is wait and they will unlock normally within the week but some have taken around month to unlock for me, its annoying but they will unlock in time

danbish, according to my younger brother it's much quicker to go offline, install the game from the disc then go back online to download all of the updates for the game.

Saying that you've probably figured this out by now but I thought I'd mention it anyway!

I can't say how much it improves the install times but according to him it does help, even if just to stop the console pausing the install (which it seemed to quite a bit, would install so much then stop meaning he'd have to go back and manually continue the install, it's not the like the console ever went offline either it just stopped downloading the update/installing).

This is something that I used to do but since various console updates the install times have improved quite a lot so I just install and update normally, when it says that the game needs a update it downloads that first so you can start the game before its 100% installed, hope that makes sense but my point is that it has got a lot better since launch and install times are one of the main issues they are working on

Reminds me of how I beat Vault of Glass in destiny 2 weeks after it launched, then didn't get the achievement for several months.

Microsoft have released a bunch of videos showing off what you can expect from the upcoming HoloLens. One of which is a new Conker platformer! And it, um...
