Utterly pointless turning 36bit colour on. I'm sure Microsoft won't be rendering games at 36bits per pixel any time soon... given that 36bit would take up 1/3 more performance to render games than 24bits per pixel. They need all the help they can get in that regard.

If anyone else has been struggling to get your Harmony to turn your Xbox One off since the update, the remote needs connecting to the Harmony app for an update.

OK something is wrong here, I've just done a quick check and at least 3 of my games need updating totalling about 6gb... where the **** is the setting to turn on auto updating?

My box is on standby all the time except when its fully on which is most of the time as I have to have it on to watch tv....

Mine was the same, had 3 games sitting in the queue and wouldn't go until I put the disc in. However when I put the disc in, the update basically happened straight away so I think they have already been downloaded but just not applied until you play them.

The 3 games in question (COD again, KI and NFS) are all digital downloads so no disk needed.

Does that mean I get a refund of £30 and a free copy of TF?

What about those who have purchased an Xbox One recently? Can they expect any compensation in light of this announcement, or is it very much an unfortunate scenario for them?

We're hugely appreciative and we'd like to thank everyone who has supported us since launch. What I would say is that the majority of the consoles purchased since launch have included a game. Earlier we were offering Forza 5 or FIFA and this latest offer has been timed to coincide with the launch of Titanfall.
Sounds like a big FU to early adopters

Early adopter takes the hit! My bloody Sony tv is £80 less in JL than I paid for it just months later but them's the breaks.

It has now I feel gone below a psychological £400 mark which should help a lot. Unless of course Sony now goes lower too. But with the game included it is a much better deal than it was.

I got screwed on the original X-BOX which got a £100 price cut just after I bought it (at launch).

Love it. If things are going so well (as the fanboys would have us believe) then it seems strange to have such a substantial cut so soon.

I wonder how much the standalone Titanfall download will be , surely they can't charge £50 for it ?

Looking like another PR disaster. The least they should do is offer anyone with the Day One Achievement a £30 download or something.
