well, its been out for 6 hrs there and one reported, sounds like that might beat Sonys 0.4% even, haha jk.

Just swung by Best Buy, they sold out of their extras, needed to go to Walmart though and I'll check to see what the demand is like there for the heck of it. Edit, WalMart sold out also...they only had 6 extra. But, ALLLL their games are now $49.00, prices are up in my store at least. Not just three like assumed/expected.

Good idea. We should start an SD club and compete for the best rated poo.

Roland - can you please start a Doodle and get people's availability?

that's big. My TV cab might not have enough space left.


I wonder why both consoles now use the sucky disc drive design. Don't they attract pet hair easily?

so the making a new thread for ps4 x 800 is contagious?
Smilie

heading to bed. took a while to setup b/c the little guy woke up so it slowed things down. played some ghosts while things installed.

1. ghosts took a little while to install
2. get your apps installing while doing other things
3. controller is like an S controller and I like it but will take some getting used to. triggers are sensative
4. really like the UI
5. now if i can get it to work with wmc Frown

one other thing
have had some slow ups when using functions for the first time like messaging etc

I'm turning in now as well.

UI is slick but I wouldn't call it entirely intuitive. After watching tutorials it's become pretty easy already though. Fortunately Kinect works really freakin smooth. If I can't find something, I just say, "XBox go to..." and it works everytime assuming I'm using the right command. But considering I haven;t studied a list of commands, I'm doing well, so figuring out commands is extremely intuitive and works great!

The fast switching/multi-tasking is awesome and setting up the TV via the xb1 is very cool. Voice command channel switches is excellent.

It's odd, I read in two reviews that the voice commands are awesome WHEN they work. I've found they work over 90% of the time.

I've DL'd a bunch of apps and set up my pins already. I can't figure out how to remove all my friends as followers. I only want certain friends to follow me. I did set up favorites already.

Also....Ghosts looks pretty good! I wonder how a true next gen game looks on this thing!

Anyways....that's it for me....for now. Excited about my day off..

Anyone get a shipping notification from amazon? My order still says its "shipping soon"....Amazon claims that it is going to be delivered by 8pm, but I don't know if I trust them so much anymore.

I am not sure if you can control your followers, you might be able to block your info though.

On the smart glass app, when you pull up a friends details it tells you how many friends they have and how many followers. Currently all of them have the exact same amount, so obviously the lists were just copied over.

I can test that...see if I can unfriend you and just follow you.

EDIT: So I removed you as a friend, you left my list of friends but stayed on my list of followers, I can't control besides just straight up blocking the person. So, clicked on your name in my follower list and it no longer listed me as your friend or follower...and I clicked "add friend" and it added me back to your follower list. You will have to approve me to get me on your friends list.

I might not have described it well, but it feels like Twitter.

JK. I actually have you (and other SD'ers) set in my Favorites category.
