    Is there something you need to do to activate it, like waving on the 360? It seems to work at random, but never when I actually want to try it.

    It activates when you put your hand up. It's not very good though.

    Forza is excellent and feels great on the new pad but is light on content. Dead Rising is rather excellent if not graphically awe inspiring. Killer Instinct is a fantastic fighter that is also light on content yet is only 16 quid so is more forgivable.

    I think you raise your hand and push into the screen to select stuff but it's woefully unreliable.

    The 360 gestures were far more accurate. If I hadn't played Kinect Preseason I'd be suspicious as to its accuracy.

    Taken the plunge and ordered an Xbox One which I'll be getting on Tuesday.

    Thing is, I already own a PS4. But I'm utterly bored of Killzone (up to Chapter 7) and I'm all Resogun'd out. Which leaves little else of interest.

    So, I thought I'd Jump In so I could finally get to enjoy Peggle 2, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Forza 5 and Powerstar Golf! Oh, and Zoo Tycoon for the other half.

    Am I making a big mistake? Should I just have stuck with my PS4? 429 is a lot of money and now I'm getting buyer's remorse already and I don't get it until Tuesday :(
    Yes. They are all average games not worth 430. Multiplats is where it is at and you have the best system for them.
    Do you own the Xbox One? Ugh you're not making my buyer's remorse any better :p
    Haha hahaha hahaha Fuck no
    Well shut it then.

    He did.

    ... only wanted to play it for a couple of hours, mind!

    Sounds like Kinect was better on the Xbox 360, gestures wise.

    If more appeals to you on the xbox one then go for it. For me the xb1 launch line up was far more appealing. Forza and power star golf being my main interests. If more the multi plats interest you then keep the ps4 as by all accounts they are better albeit small differences.

    @H1ggyLTD you not bothering with it? I really like it. Very slick, the DS4 is great. Really glad I got both.

    Just can't see a need to have both until a much later date, as things stand.

    But like i say, if nobody has took it off me by xmas eve i'll allow myself the indulgence.

    If any of you have a tablet the I really suggest installing Smartglass, MS have just released an update (at least for Android anyway), you can view all your game clips on the go.... without xboxone on too

    Playback quality seems fantastic too, probably depends on your bb/network
    But yeah looks likes this Smartglass thing could be amazing in the future

    Seeing as you all happily paid 430 for yours, how about a Xbox One for the bargain price of 6000?

    I wonder if thats the price that would mean people finally start caring about buying a half finished console?

    @EMarkM

    I'd gladly rather buy a 3DS and a Wii U instead of a Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the moment!

    ... or give the money to charity as oppose to spending over four hundred pounds on a half finished console.

    : )

    Pissoff and play your ps4 nick! :)

    Xb1 will get the additional sw that I agree it need
    But hey the ps4 is missing loads of stuff too....

    Note: I will get a ps4 - so no fanboyism from me..... they will both be amazing consoles a few months from now...looking at march14 for a more visioned future on both tbh

    Features are so easy to patch in is essentially they're pc's

    Yay.

    I think it's safe to say that B4 seems fixed. I've had no problems the last three sessions.

    Epic game just now with Altitude. Just managing to jump from a collapsing skyscraper when I saw the tell tale signs. That's going on an epic compilation.

    See, I thought that might be you but wasn't sure. Now you can see how much I really suck! Although I did do pretty well in the game previous.

    I'm a bit too gung-ho for BF :D

    Edit:
    Just watched your video upload. Nice! Although it does highlight how bloody crude the transition from building to rubble is during levelution.

    Edit 2:
    Also, apologies for that awful helicopter crash I guess I was responsible for. I don't think the bugs are all gone because all of a sudden it skipped forward and I was sideways right up against that building with absolutely no control.

    Methinks they should have gone with Azure ;)

    Guys, re BF4. Am I blind or is there no option to jump into a game with friends. Saw a couple of you online last night but couldn't jump to join in.

    Desperate for some proper squadding up and communication.

    Aye. Sadly I didn't manage to capture the actual escape.

    You were still in my party when I was recording all that silly bollocks too. That wasn't embarrassing at all!

    Don't worry about the chopper, I can't fly for shit.

    There is a join option with the Y button but it was greyed out when I joined Altitude. The best way is to join the game friends are playing from the front end. It should be on the right. From there as long as you're on the same team you can use the team option (forgot what it's called) to join their squad. Don't know whether you can switch sides.

    You can switch sides on the squad screen by pressing the right thumbstick

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?
