    Same here - about 200ms. But its been mentioned that regardless where your closest Azure data centre is, the detailed network statistics still will only ping a server in Seattle.

    Most underwhelming press release of all time.

    Are they still peddling this BS or are Kotaku months and months behind? I mean, do either of them still think any of us believe the cloud will make graphics better on Xbox One? I didn't believe it from the second they suggested it, has there been a single instance of Azure processing helping graphic fidelity on Xbox One at all?

    Also kinda hilarious they cite MCC given how fucked up that release has been. Anecdotally, it's supposed to used dedicated servers (Azure?) but when it can't it reverts to P2P. Apparently, P2P happens the vast majority of the time. 343 have really drop the ball.

    Every telltale game including future episodes for Borderlands and Game of thrones is $77 on the xbox store at the moment. Never played any of their games but heard great things so now is a great time to start.

    Get the AC bundle for $388 at BigW and get 3 games you really want and that will cost about the same.

    Unless you like playing games with kinect its not essential. The OS has improved a lot since launch for control pad users. I only use it to navigate the OS and say 'xbox record that'.

    Well there is Resident Evil (1996)
    Saints Row 4 (2013)
    Tetris (1984)
    Tomb Raider (2013)
    Halo (2001 - but doesn't work sorry)

    :lol:

    Really piss poor moment in the new consoles for mine, much worse for PS4 too. They won't really start till the end of the year, like the Wii U, it takes a year for anything of note to make it (Mario 3D World and Mario Kart came out in year 2....)

    I played it once for about 2 hours. I hated how you need to grind the whole time. Swapped it for Wolfenstein.

    So I'm stuck without internet for another week...
    Q1 - If I've set the Xbox up, will it need to be connected to the internet again before games are playable?

    Q2 - Are there any good offline games anyone can recommend?

    You should be able to launch games offline but I'm not sure there is an xbone game left that doesn't have a massive patch to make it playable ie not bugged to hell and back.

    Mostly true for PS4 as well. What an age we live in ;)
