    So you'd obviously recommend buying a copy from a retail location I assume

    I mean, in the long run no, but if you want to play ASAP it's your best bet. I'm dedicated to trying to be all-digital because I want to be able to hop between my games whenever I want and never have to switch discs. Ghosts seems to work fine, and I have to imagine I'll get my issue fixed sooner or later (especially since it's not just happening to me).

    By the way, aside from my 2K trouble I love the system and how it's completely silent (a far cry from my old white 360 which annoyed me with its constant sounds, and is a big reason I rarely watched movies on it), it plays my blu rays now, and even when it's a BD movie, if you switch to a game or to TV, it actually keeps your BD state running so you can resume the BD movie in like 3 seconds or so. Very cool. And now that it doesn't make noise I'll make this my primary way of watching Netflix or Amazon movies as well.

    Also, they really did take an already great 360 controller and improve up on it. It's the best controller I've ever seen in terms of comfort, weight, and functionality. Awesome controller. Even with a battery pack it still feels very light.

    Only thing about the controller it seems is the clicking of the buttons is pretty loud

    also I noticed that the last game I installed actually took less time than the one before no more 45-60 min installs

    Using the TV input is much better than I expected. I didn't think I'd use it much but after having NBA TV snapped while playing Forza, I know I'll be using it all the time. This feature definitely outweighs any graphic difference with the PS4.

    Is it just me, or does the TV picture look more compressed through the XB1 than it does directly to the TV?

    I didn't do day one but still got mine Saturday which I was pretty stoked about since I figured Monday all the way. I didn't get a chance to hook it up until late last night, and unfortunately, mine has the disc drive issue shown in the video above but mine doesn't make that clicky sound. You put in a game or a Blu-Ray, and it spits it right back out. It will however play DVD's and audio CD's, and the rest of the features like Netflix and what not appear to be working. Unfortunately for Microsoft I already have a console that can do those things. Even more unfortunate for Microsoft, it's beginnning to sound like it's common enough to be an issue. I'm calling Amazon and Microsoft this morning to figure out what to do.

    I've played Ghosts, but just for a short amount of time. I'm hoping to put a good amount of time into both 2K and Ghosts this afternoon/evening.

    Servers don't work. Only tried for 10 minutes but they don't connect.

    The online options work exactly like last gen. The quick match and play with friends options are there, they just don't work.

    Hmm. I got on right away for a quick team up game about an hour or so ago. Must be hit and miss.

    OK I talked to both Microsoft and Amazon today. Sounds like one way or another I'm going to be able to get a new console or a refund, I just have to choose which route I want to go. Microsoft seemed like they could give a more concrete date for a replacement.
