I've got the TV running through my XB1 and really, I love it. I'll love it even more when I expand my game library. Being able to instantly switch back and forth, snap the TV to the side, etc., is great.

I love it too, except when I am playing a game and my wife will walk in the room and yell "XBox Watch TV"

:lol:

I played like 3 games last night. It is pretty fun, but there's a lot to take in as a noob.

I'll send you an invite this weekend dude.

it was a lot easier to take in than BF4....after being away from gaming

Yeah, you can just "run around and shoot stuff" without too much trouble. But there's a lot to figure out if you want to be good.

I am terrible in a Titan.

This is exactly how I play, and I usually manage to be in the upper half of my team (mostly play attrition). Level 41 now.

I use a shotgun (extended mag), cloak, faster power regen, and never stop moving. It's really fun, and this style of play is very viable with the right equipment (if you are going to stay mostly on the ground, you need cloak). I do end up getting creamed when playing against a coordinated team of rooftop snipers, but those guys are few and far between (in attrition, anyway)

In Hardpoint the x-ray see through walls sensor is much more useful than cloak to nail those guys defending/camping in a corner before going to take an area

Yes, mine came with a code card that you could theoretically re-sell.

Yes.

By the way, redeeming cards and codes by sticking the card in front of the camera instead of typing in a 15 digit code is a small thing but very cool nonetheless.

So if I shoot the lock off my wallet and buy an Xbox One, it appears my friends list is getting smaller and smaller each day, my current Live subscription transfers over, right?

I took the plunge and got the bundle as a preorder. 1st impressions of Titanfall are that it is total chaos, and I suck but I like it. Amazed by the people already at high levels racking up pilot kills. Have seen 2 types predominantly so far, jump kick monkeys and speed demon cloakers. Love a lot of things though: everyone gets a titan, cannon fodder bots, points for lots of things like defending hardpoints, hacking turrets, etc. The lifeboat race at the end. Will take a lot of getting used to though.

Loved the scanning of the codes by Kinect, nice touch. Haven't done much voice command stuff yet, little time to play.

Ryse takes FOREVER to install and update. Haven't tried Marvel or Dead Rising 3 yet.

Bought the Titanfall bundle at Best Buy today, they will match Walmart's price. Plus if you buy 2 extra games you get a $15 BB card.

Seems like there are alot of folks that have a grasp on the online play, not me yet.

That would be sweet if Amazon didn't start charging sales tax ($40 in CA).

Are there any games where you can play split screen with a guest? After buying Battlefield 4 found out this is not an option to play with another, what's the deal with that. Titanfall is another that will not allow split screen multiplayer.

Marvel Lego Super Heroes will. I don't know of any others.

I am really digging the snap feature and being able to watch netflix, march madness, or play the xbox 360 through the xbox one while using its features at the same time. I can't see buying another console after this as my main purchase(usually I'm one console per generation) without this feature. Down time in match making is gone forever.

You could play the 360 through it?

What do you use while matchmaking? Seems like a minute or so is too little a time to get into something on Netflix.

Mostly check up on sports in between rounds but when I play something like minecraft I'll be watching netflix at the same time.

Yep, hook the hdmi out from the 360 and put it into the hdmi in on the xbox one, this is the same input that the cable box hdmi cord would go to but I have a splitter. Then just click tv on the xbox one and it will take you to the whatever is in the hdmi input. You need to have both consoles since it's not backwards comparable but i like having the additions of the xbox one while playing the 360.

There was something in this thread about having to use the high speed hdmi cable that came with XB either on the cable box to XB connection, or the XB to TV connection. Anyone know which?

I had a hard time until I got weapons and mods that fit my play style better. Also remember this is a game you have to keep moving in. If you stop for long you will die.

Also, remember to use you burn cards.

I have an old hdmi cord and the new one to make my xbox 360 work with the xbox one and my tv and have no problems so far.

Does anyone use the smart pistol? I am terrible at aiming, so I thought this would be great for me. It's taking me forever though to grind my way up to the accelerated target locking upgrade.

IIRC, the cord he is referring to prevents any signal degradation others have experienced when they used a regular HDMI cable to run their TV through the XB1.

Just a guess really, but I'm expecting a price cut at E3 this year. Several retailers have been offering "soft" price cuts for a while now, and Microsoft itself has done some discounting in the UK too. I didn't think there was much chance of seeing any price cuts in 2014, but I underestimated how much of Microsoft's market strategy revolves around being the sales leader as opposed to "just" strong #2. The XB1 is selling really well by historical standards even at its current price point, but it's hard to negotiate any sort of exclusivity deals if you're not in first place.
