XBOne first impressions

So had a bit of a play now and its not bad, Kinect actually works, QR codes with Kinect are a thing of genius, voice commands work most of the time..

Gaming wise, tried Fifa 14 and Forza 5, both look like 1080p versions of there last 360 version, only thing to slightly impress me so far was reflections on the inside of the windscreens on Forza, that was cool.

Not had a play with the other functions as yet.

As Gunner said at the lan its hard to see how they can get more from the system as we already know about X86 and have been pushing it for years, the onboard ram on the chip may help though.

Main takeaway is that the graphic are pretty damn good for such a piss poor collection of hardware, this is next gen it should be bending over high end PC's and making them cry, it should be melting ice caps with its heat output and power draw, but alas this seems to be a tree huggers next gen.

Its good but you could spec up a PC for the same cost that would be faster and have much cheaper games I think.

Its unique features to help it stand out mind, looks like it could be a good all round entertainment machine in the long run, Kinect and its voice commands certainly look to be handy in the living room.

Play your cards right Valve and it shouldn't be hard to trump this with SteamOS.

Re: XBOne first impressions

Quick Tip - try training the Kinect several times throughout the day so it can get used to different light levels unless you've got a fritzel dungeon where you do all your gaming.

Also, I've noticed the voice commands have issues with some regional dialect. Try speaking like a Manc and see if that helps

Re: XBOne first impressions

Thanks for the mention, pretty much as I assumed then interms of what you're getting, I've seen some funny videos of netflix getting paused by the TV's audio due to Kinect voice command.

Re: XBOne first impressions

Its a nice upgrade from the 360 but disappointing imo for a next gen box, Should have gone dual chip on this one IMO and stuck a beast of a GPU in there, I can understand the single chip solution though, makes a lot of sense when its all on one die, so many bottlenecks removed.

Guess this is the limit of what can be fabbed on a single chip, its pretty impressive when you compare it to a standard AMD APU.
