I just don't get the remote

Microsoft come out with this all powerful home media controller that allows you to change channel, pause playback, raise volume etc all with a flick of the wrist or a voice command and then says hey I know what let's being out a remote control. What's the point ?

I'm still old fashioned I still prefer a dedicated blu ray player to a console and I've not even contemplated putting my sky or xbmc through the one due to the 50hz thing, but even if I did I have a harmony remote which whilst 4 times the price is well worth the outlay

The first line of the Press Release:

For Xbox One owners who want to control their TV and entertainment at the touch of a button via a familiar remote
...which is everyone. Hur hur, right guys? Right?


Is this thing on?

Don't encourage them.

I use both voice commands and the controller.

I have Harmony remote but not all the buttons work for the Xbox One. I need to update the remote as I haven't done so since the launch.

The IR receiver is built in to the kinect right? So you'd need that plugged in to use the remote?

You (plus a $24.99 accessory) are the controller.

Now, bundle it, bin the Kinect and drop the price and you might just save this generation.

Scaler was fixed with last patch apparently -

I don't see an awful lot of difference between the different version in the screenshots, but I am fairly tired so that might have something to do with it.

It does look better. I was complaining about the text in COD the other week and that's all been fixed now. It used to look like the sharpness on the TV had been whacked up to 100.

Yeah, exactly that, I turned down the sharpness thinking it was the TV.

I thought I may have noticed it a *Tiny* bit on Forza 5.

Apparently it's mostly noticeable on Dead Rising 3 and Assassins Creed 4.

Forza is 1080p though isn't it? You should only notice it in upscaled games.

You shouldn't see it at all in Forza, that's not being upscaled.

It actually is though

Racing gameplay is in 1080p, replays and menus are not

True story!

EDIT: nope, i was thinking of the fps!

It would make sense to me if they put it on PS+ one month before MGS5 is launched, it would be the perfect taster/advert for it.

You're right, it's that replays play at 30fps not 60fps

My bad

The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

Just discovered a message on my One with a code to download the Preview Registration App to allow me early access to the next update! ... Ran it & during registering it mentions that once I've got the update, I can send a link to any of my friends to get it too so we can test all the new party fixes. I'll keep you all updated....
