“Xbox 1. Forza horizons 3 bundle”

Written on: 01/12/2017 by diablo944 (21 reviews written)

Thinking of buying an xbox one for christmas? If its a present for the kids you had better set it up as soon as you get it if its the current bundle. Before I do this review, I need to stress I am a gamer. I have no allegiance to any manufacturer and they only keep my custom as long as they are supplying what I want from their devices. My last xbox was a 360. I went sony as they didnt charge to go online back then and xbox live seemed like a ripoff to me. Since then we got the ps4 and sony… Read Full Review

Diablo944's Response to diablo944's Review

Written on: 01/12/2017

A quick update on the state of play.

The encosed leaflets for digital downloads (one for forza horizons 3 with hotwheels expansion, the other for 14 days of xbox live). The first obviously worked and after a very long time were downloaded and installed. Forza horizons 3 worked fine. But hotwheels needs xbox gold live.

Before I had gotten through my first day of use though, my newly created outlook account/xbox account (obviously very connected) was suspended and i had to go through giving phone number (which i hate) to reinstate my 8 hours old account so I could play forza3 on the xbox. Grrr. Not sure what triggered such security concerns so early on, but definitely unhappy with it. Yet another mark down for the xb1.

Anyway, back to needing gold to play hotwheels expansion (nothing of that works without live gold), No problem thinks I, just input the other code. Did that, xbox was happy with it, except after accepting the code and saying I would get the 14 days live, still no hotwheels expansion play. Bad form on ms for giving a game expansion, and making a big thing of it on the packaging, only to not get to play it as its hidden behind microsofts pay to play system.

I still like the xbox to a degree, but the hiccups and general annoyances are mounting steadily.

Forza 5 incidentally, I cant access any dlc. Reading between the lines it may actually not be there. On the forums I am reading that forza 4 dlc was killed off, declared an end of life item by its developers and the dlc taken off the store. This situation is a warning to anyone buying older games for the xb1. You may get the game, but the multiplayer servers, dlc, large portions of online components? May be dead in this day and age despite the game being theoretically ok to buy/play.

Its a fact that any games have a shelf life. I had even been concerned about games that need online connections to play were potentially suffering with inbuilt obsolescence. Forza 4 definitely has lost dlc for new players (those who already downloaded it still have it). The bigger concern for those buying old but current console games is when a game 'needs' some form of dlc to complete it. Its not just microsofts machine that carries that concern, sony are equally in that scenario. At least microsoft keep a lot of backwards compatibility with old games.

“360 is much better compared to this”

Written on: 09/12/2015 by Sonny1994 (1 review written)

Every game you gave to download before playing. It will not let you play right from the disk. Game play you have to manually save everything. Forget auto save like every other gaming console since ps1. Good Graphics but leaves much to me desired. Consider not buying at this time… Read Full Review

“What happened to putting in a disc and playing a game”

Written on: 12/11/2014 by Colin264 (1 review written)

Why does everything have to be downloaded? Why can't you play a game without having to connect to a slow unresponsive server. Been trying to simply play a simple story line game all day with no luck. Can't even finish a dang download. So far I have found nothing good about Xbox one… Read Full Review

“Great machine”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by halofan (3 reviews written)

I have always been a fan of the xbox consoles but the xbox one is definitely the best console I have had the pleasure of owning bar none. The graphics are superb, the interface fantastic (especially the voice activation over kinect). My only quarm is I have had an issue now and again with having to unplug and reboot the console if I close down the with a game still loaded? No doubt this will be fixed with an update. Other than that well impressed and plenty of enjoyment to be had from the… Read Full Review

“xbox 1”

Written on: 13/08/2013 by Kubujd57 (0 reviews written)

In spite of the proven fact that Xbox 360 Slim comes with a great and sophisticated graphics that is similar to xobx 360, it is made with great functionalities at the same cost. Amongst the changes carried out in this model is the improvement of the capacity of its hard drive with 250 Gigabytes which could store documents, photos, games and also music. This model also comes in a sleeker and smaller form. It decreased by 40% in weight when compared to its predecessor. This device can be placed… Read Full Review

XBOX 360 has the SAME graphics as XBOX 360 SLIM - the clue is in the name...its just cosmetic.

(There are some internal differences but they are not noticeable apart from quieter DVD drive)
