    Mario never has bugs. Not that I remember.

    I don't know if I've said this before or not. But I am really not a fan of Microsoft. The Xbox is a fine system, but even the Xbox diehards facepalm at Microsoft.

    Xbox isn't the issue, MS as a company is.

    "Here's a kinect
    Never mind"

    Literally I can make a list of the events that Microsoft could have done differently that would result in the Xbox one selling much better than it is now.

    Just out of curiosity, are there people on here who still enjoy the Xbox One, despite some of the crap that it's gone through in the fifteen months that it's been out?

    I barely touch mine after the MCC debacle. Gonna be getting Evolve for it though.

    Still loving the hell out of mine as much I did when I first got it for Christmas. I use my One 98% of the time when I game, with my 360 filling that 2%.

    I have yet to use mine. I don't have any games to play. (I have no money to buy them with) And I've had it for about a week. But my brother can, he has FIFA. (I hate sports games). Also, I'm hoping that when I finally do get a game, I'm able to play online.

    I'd be playing the hell out of mine if I had a game.

    As long as you have games you enjoying playing, you'll get use out of it. I've been buying most of my games on the X1, so I've been using it quite alot since I got it when it came out. Not just for games though, but for apps like Netflix, TV, and Twitch that I used for background noise. I've always been occupied with it, so whatever issues that people saw with it never really bothered me. I didn't buy MCC to play against others, so those issues never really effected me.

    ^ Same here. My One is a bloody workhorse when it comes to doing secondary tasks like watching YouTube, Netflix, browsing the web, recording clips, friends, hubs/apps for certain games, the list goes on; and it does primary tasks like playing video games beautifully. For instance, I bought MCC mainly to experience the campaigns again (especially H2), redone with amazing graphical fidelity and running at 60fps; but the several times that I have played online in the past few months, I usually find matches rather quickly and am usually able to finish a majority of them (the times that I don't, let's not get into that as it would just piss me off).

    Hell, I still use the bloody Kinect to do shit as well.

    Hey guys, currently looking for a cheapish (300 GBP) Xbox One for a friend of mine who used to be on these Boards, lives in the UK. If anyone's aware of any deals, that'd be a great help.

    The kinect, as long as you're not using it for motion sensing, is awesome. Using codes in under half a second? Why yes I would, thank you very much

    I play either Destiny or GTAV every day.
    What's the problem with it? Mine has some issues too.

    Yeah that happens to me. Sometimes holding the disc there while it's trying to take it in and waiting for it to increase it's pull then letting it go works.
