    I'm pretty happy with my new toy, and look forward to many years of gaming to come.

    But the chat system has GOT to be fixed ASAP. I am not going to put that Microsoft chat headset underneath my tb's and lose audio from one ear, and the kinect mic is average at best for party chat let alone comp gaming.

    I still can't believe they didn't release aftermarket partner headsets at launch.

    It's true, but the point is the system is selling. Not as well as Ps4, but it's also more expensive and selling a million in 24hrs in anyone's books has to be good. Both systems will popular in 5 years, I don't know if the Wii U will be around in 5 years though...

    edit - So Ps4 and Xbox 1 have sold 25% of Wii U's total sales in 24hrs...

    No doubt, I am actually suprised the PS4 sold that well tbh it has NOTHING going for it at launch. Would have thought most of the PS4's sales would have come mid to late next year when it actually has something worth playing on it.

    I'm glad the Xbox One sold well though, hopefully steam box also sells well as competition is always a good thing.

    Wonder if MS will sell the brand off once Elop comes in.

    I never said it sold as well as the PS4, just said I was majorly impressed both have done 1 million sales in 24hrs. I really wouldn't have expected either of them to move that many units based on previous launch figures.

    Im going to be picking up DR3 and probably Ryse for the shinies when i go overseas, and also a controller to paint it as well.

    Titanfall looks pretty interesting, we shall see how it actually goes closer to launch though

    My console is still grinding occasionally, but only for 2 games, forza and dead rising. When I insert all my other discs it is perfect. I just take the disc out and put it in again and it works. For how long I have NFI.

    It is only when I insert the game and grinds for about 1sec. Does it about 1 in 10 times and only for two particular games. I then have to take the disc out and re insert it otherwise it just keeps saying insert disc. It is really strange. If it keeps it up tonight I will take it back tomorrow morning.

    Why Microsoft continues to grind my fucking gears. When will they learn?

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2...by-microsoft-after-xbox-one-launch-appearance

    They got caught out again, and have gone into damage control.

    Most of you wont have the patience to watch this whole video, but I encourage you to, the last half deals with why Microsoft is culpable here.



    Here is a video of the bits that got removed from the coverage above.

    Yes grab the pitchforks everyone and follow Beast to England to have a cry at Microsoft for using a popular asshole.

    I'll follow Beast! He's completely unbiased and doesn't work for Sony!

    I'm with this guy!!!!

    You probably should though, seeing as how MS doesn't give a fuck about anyone outside of the US&A. How's that Foxtel integration going? Fantasty AFL?

    Seeing how Microsoft has already dumped KSI, what's the issue? You want them to build a time machine?
