    it's not a game i'd buy, but good that it works as intended for you. as i'm sure it does for others. but that does not help me at all

    In a post on Reddit, Hryb -- better known as Major Nelson -- responded to complaints about One's party system and the lack of a guide overlay similar to the one on Xbox 360. While he didn't specify exactly what kind of fixes are in the works, he did offer some reason for hope, stating, "I had a meeting today about much of this and I can say that things will get better. I can't offer a timeline of a list of what till be addressed first, but we are aware of the issue and things will get better."

    1/ smartglass in Dead Rising 3 is fantastic.
    2/ achievements are now a mess.
    3/ kinect just does not work the way all those MS videos said it would.


    while i understand it's a new system and will be improved upon, it is also an upgrade from 360, so it should be as good as that to start with and improved further. sadly it's several times worse.
    What did they do to the achievements?

    as Edge puts it..
    The most perfect example of Microsoft ruining its prior work is Achievements, and the number of hoops you have to jump through to view them. Rather than the quick tap of yore, you have to spend several seconds holding the button down. This, incredibly, then reboots the Achievement app Ė even if itís already running Ė in order to display some challenges, which you have to skip past to view an Achievement list built not around charmingly crafted icons but a slew of previously-released screenshots, which take several seconds to appear and then have to be selected to show what you did to unlock them.

    By the time youíve discovered what you unlocked, youíve stopped caring. Thatís assuming you even knew it happened in the first place, as the app is online-only and offline play silently adds your tally to a register you have to go online to view. Thus, what was once a strength of the platform is either blocked entirely or hidden many layers deep, an ignominy previously reserved for Xbox Live Indie Games.

    i've not had any popups saying any friends have gone online.

    also, someone joined my game of Dead Rising and was talking away to me and while i did not have my headset connected i was trying to answer him using kinect as i always did with kinect on 360.

    he could not hear me and said he was leaving as i was not talking back. so i thought i'd message him to explain.
    on 360 i'd just press the guide button and select the last person i'd played with. god knows how you do that on xbox as i could not find a list of recently played against people.

If you haven't seen the news, Apple just recently bought out the company, Primesense, that created the technology the Kinect used. The pertinent factor here is that MS opted out of buying Primesense, or even their technology, and decided to create their own Kinect 2. Kinect put a lot of compute load on the 360, so MS offloaded that to a processor inside the Kinect 2. It still sounds like it takes considerable resources away from the main console. Also, lag was a big problem that Kinect players wouldn't admit. So, this Kinect 2 was supposed to be far better than the Kinect and it sounds like it isn't. MS not buying Primesense when they claimed the technology was essential to the function of the console seems to be another indicator of the long slide of MS acquiring anything game related.
    Actually MS isn't using primesense technology for Kinect 2. They are using a combination of in house and tech from canesta. They bought the company back in 2010. Kinect 2 is a huge improvement over the first one.

    indeed. I also like that it can distinguish between different people and different voices when they come into view. That's a very cool feature.

    it really is a frigging pain.
    once upon a time demo's were easy to find, i could easily find who i had last gamed with. getting to achievements, checking on downloads and removing stuff from the hd was so easy. i could go on....
    That's because there aren't any demos yet and the achievements and downloads are are right there on the home screen. I downloaded Killer instinct and the progress was on the home screen. Same with installing a game. All you have to do is minimize the game if you want, or if you don't, a message will come up telling you when enough is downloaded to play the game. They have consolidated stuff which the 360 had all over the place. I think it's much better and simpler.

    Nothing. They are right there on the home screen and viewing them is much faster and easier to read.

    Kinect is working fine for me. Once in awhile I have to repeat things. I'm sure it will get better.

    Yea, I expect MS to have several updates to to just about everything. The party system does need to be fixed though.
