    My COD stopped working yesterday. Would boot up and then just go to a black screen.

    Uninstalled it, and reinstalled it which of course took an hour...

    Only for it to do the same thing. Repeated the same thing. Same thing happened.

    Wasn't going to uninstall it again so I just unplugged my Xbox One completely. Turned it back on, and boom, it worked again.

    That all being said, I am glad I have a warranty. The thing is bound to break at some point, IMO.

    Taking an hour to install something a little over a Gig in file size OFF A DISC is pretty bad.

    Microsoft has a ton of kinks and bugs to work out. I have faith, though. For now.

    Yeah, I feel like this was clearly a wobbly start for the Xbox One, but at the same time it's easy to see how it will probably all come together over the next year or so.

    It sucks that we have to basically be beta testers by being the early adopters, but it's still a good system even now, overall. But a lot of room for improvement, definitely.

    The first year of the 360 was worse than this one.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Yeah, some of the in game goals are ridiculous and counter intuitive. One of the ones I despise the most is when the coach basically mocks you and says okay superstar that you think you are score the next 10 straight points, and then if you get an assist you are punished and fail that goal. That was stupid.
    That one always pisses me off when I see it especially now that I am playing as a pg. How do you get penalized because you got your teammate involved and did not try to be a ball hog.

    It felt so nice to stomp Jackson Ellis and send his team home with a 25 point loss.

    Read that Elder Scroll Online will be $60 retail and then have a monthly charge of $15.

    All I can say is:

    When are the HBO and NBA apps coming out? I didn't spend $500 to wait on apps that are already on the 360. Fix this **** Microsoft!!!

    Microsoft didn't make you buy the XB1, i understand the frustration, but honestly if your remember how bare bones the 360 was at release the XB1 is much more fleshed out. None of this happens over night and believe me I am quite sure they are not that concerned about apps when they are still having issues with games.

    I could be failing to recall, but I believe this is the first time I've ever bought or received a console on day 1, so this is new territory to me. I got my Xbox 360 I think around a year after it came out, so I 'missed' the bumpiest part of its existence.

    Of course, earlier systems I got as a kid for Christmas were at the end of an era when consoles were more basic and generally just did what they were supposed to do (SNES, N64, Xbox).

    I broke down and bought one so my wife could play Zumba, it'll be awhile before I buy another game because I just got some other 360 games for Xmas and the new titles are underwhelming...

    A lot of the issues with the installs seems to be with developers having such large install files. The install for COD was 39 GBs where as FIFA was looking at about 8 GBs. I am sure as the generation matures the install files will get lower and the install on the system will get better from Microsofts end.

    Every generation starts out a little rough. When the 360 came out it was pretty barebone and the user interface was nothing like what it was at the end of the generation. I am sure once we are a year in things will be running smoothly as well.

    I do not have a PS4 and I bet it has some things that are bumpy to.

    Things have been pretty smooth for me on the PS4 actually. Early on I had some freezing issues with 2k14, but one of the early patches fixed that.

    Problem free on my Xbox One since the day it was released. How am I lucky? Not trying to brag, but it seems like I am one of the few without issues.

    I've had no issues either. Just with NBA.

    I'm overall very happy with the Xbox one. The tv integration has been very useful. I'm actually using the internet browser.

    In about a year I can see myself doing away with cable all together. Once the apps start populating there will be no need.

    Streaming audio/ video podcasts that don't have apps.

    Using youtube a lot as well. Being able to use the YouTube app on my phone as a remote control is awesome

    If the upcoming patch for 2k14 doesn't fix the server problems then I'm all for returning to the xbox 360 team up squad. I just started playing again on the 360 and can't believe how easy and smooth it is to connect to games.

    Apparently the patch may fix things. We will see.

    Also.. Madden 25 is fun. Has it's issues but overall glad I picked it up. With the lack of games on the horizon I can see myself playing quite a bit.

    Pretty amazing how flawless EA servers are in comparison to 2K. They improved their team up mode as well

    So Ryse has not received a lot of great reviews from the media, but I have talked to a few people and they say that it is freaking fun even with some do the technical issues.

    Some of my favorite games like Conflict: Desert Storm were far from technically amazon, but had so much fun with it. Anybody give Ryse a shot?

    Let me put this in perspective. I pre-ordered a launch Xbox360, I didn't even get the console until February or about 4 months after it originally came out.
