Not having NBA Game Time app out of the box is a huge bummer for me. Hopefully they get it quickly.
No idea which console this screenshot is from but:

David looks great, but why does the jersey look wrong? Something with the size or spacing of Pacers, I think?
My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
I want to know why he went 6 of 14...

Xbox One it is for me. I just like the Xbox and see no reason to switch.
Am I correct that as long as both games are digitally bought/stored on my hard drive, I can actually quickly switch between multiple games? Like if I'm waiting in a team up lobby in 2K14 (assuming it has team up this year), I can hop over to, say, Dead Rising 3 to pass the time before the lobby starts the game, right?
I'm so broke. I already paid for my PS4 months ago and I just paid for an Xbox One as well. I should have both at my door on day one. My wife is gonna divorce me...
From what I've read the digital downloads are going to be taking an insane amount of hard drive space. Seemed lame I wanted to get away from buying discs
Anybody else get a notification for a free Killer Instinct?
i also read it on another website trying to find that one too
PS4, Xbox One hard drives will only fit 12 full-sized games

It might be a good idea to go ahead and start planning out exactly how you are going to fill up your new console’s hard drive. Dave Thier from Forbes points out that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are each equipped with 500GB of internal storage, which is plenty to store dozens of current generation of games — but unfortunately for digital hoarders, launch games on PS4 and Xbox One will typically come in between 30 GB to 50GB in size.
This leaves room for around 12 retail games downloaded to the console, and considering how common day-one digital releases have become, downloading full games from each respective console’s store is becoming a viable option for many gamers. It is worth keeping in mind that neither console is going to support external hard drives, although the PS4′s internal hard drive can be upgraded fairly easily.
If anything, this is great news for brick-and-mortar game stores. Without easy access to every digital purchase, consumers will likely continue to pick up hard copies of their games, which they can pop in to their consoles and play immediately without having to reinstall a 40GB file. Once Sony and Microsoft find a way to effectively implement cloud streaming on their consoles, this could be a non-issue. But for now, it’s a good idea to plan ahead.

The above is why, as long as they offer physical copies of games and movies, that's the product I'm spending my money on. Eventually there won't be a choice, but as long as there is...
I was only wanting to have up to maybe 6 or so games installed at a time, and at launch it will only be 2 or 3, so that won't really hurt me, I don't think. I've been playing on a 360 that only had 20GB of total memory up to now, so this will seem like tons and tons of room to me.
If the hard drive is literally 500GB, that means there is likely about 450GB actually available, less whatever space the default operating system and apps take up, so it'll be tight but I think I can still have about 5 to 7 games installed at once.
The way I game, that'll be plenty, I think. I'll keep whatever is hot at the time installed, and when I know I've reached a stopping point with something, it'll be first up to be deleted when something new comes along. I'll rotate games out.
Now that u mention that it applies me lol I usually only play nba 2k and cod that's pretty much it I got physical copies cause of my trades and gift cards I got for GameStop.
also I know target is doing a B2G1 on games
Is it possible to save the hard copy to your hard drive and no longer need the disc? I hate having to carry the discs from 1 Xbox to the other my discs get scratched faster too
That's why I plan to purchase digitally myself.
Install sizes for Xbox One launch titles have been revealed after a consumer managed to get hold of a console early thanks to a shipping error by Target.
According to Moonlightswami (via NeoGAF), all games will require between 246 MB and 43 GB of storage space to install. This isn't in reference to digital downloads either - all Xbox One titles will require an install.
Seeing as the Xbox One comes with an internal hard drive size of 500 GB, it looks like you'll need to get into the habit of deleting old games once you're done with them, at least until the promised external hard drive support is added.
The install sizes he's reporting are as follows:
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag – 20GB
Battlefield 4 – 33GB
Call of Duty: Ghosts – 39GB
Dead Rising 3 – 19GB
FIFA 14 – 8GB
Fighter Within – 9.2GB
Forza Motorsport 5 – 31GB
Just Dance 2014 – 22GB
Killer Instinct – 3.4GB
Lococyle – 13GB
Madden NFL 25 – 12GB
NBA 2K14 – 43GB
NBA Live 14 – 9GB
Powerstar Golf – 3.9GB
Ryse: Son of Rome – 34GB
Skylanders: Swap Force – 15GB
Xbox Fitness – 246MB
Zoo Tycoon – 2.6GB
Zumba World Party – 24GB
Some games can apparently be played midway through the install process and, as you'd expect, installation is fairly speedy.
Is there any game that is hyped coming out at release that makes it worth it for me to get an XB1 then and not just wait for Titanfall?
