    Default XB1 Discussion

    Hey hey my fellow pilots. This is a thread simply to talk about your opinions and views on the Xbox One. Anything from your likes and dislikes to you just straight on ranting about stuff (which seems to be the case for me lol). This was a little chain on the PS4 topic, so I thought why not create a dedicated XB1 topic for this.

    Here's my little rant about the thing.

I've noticed, there aren't nearly as many irritating pre teens on PSN funnily enough, seeing as it used to be free. Do you guys think Sony will start doing something to this extent in the future?

    As for Sony, it will be a bit more complicated since the PS systems donít have a microphone by default (read as: unlike XBO which provides Kinect to everyone) but if they have the chance to do something similar they will do it. AFAIK today you can already get your PSN account banned for inappropriate text messages. Using audio is simply the next step in this regard.

Almost every single forum I've come across (except this one of course ) has had pretty vulgar swearing on it. Some quite chronically. And mods don't usually mind unless it gets way outta hand. But this whole XBL thing is kind of taking it too far. I'd understand if MS handed out bans for user abuse and being a general pain-in-the-neck to everyone but Skype calls? That should really be reconsidered. Some people like to vent to friends through Skype about a particular game, situation in life or just about anything but now they have to hold back because MS wishes to keep their service a "clean, safe and fun" environment for everyone. I don't think they have any right to be listening in on/recording everyone's private calls through Skype. That Kinect is one eerie piece of technology lol. Sorry for skewing this whole thing to Xbox but it just sorta struck me as absurd when you pay for this.
    TLDR;

    -I found out MS listens to you talk and bans you for swearing on Skype with your friends.
    -vincoof said it happens all the time, even on PSN, only with text chat.
    -I said it's not cool when it's a private call to a friend, and when you're not abusing anyone.

    This was the seed that was this topic's creation basically. But yeah, I mean there are good things about the XB1, it's not like I hate it or anything. but so far, there's nothing I like about what Microsoft is doing. The only thing that is positive for me is the fact that this console truly can be called innovative. The Kinect, while being creepy as hell, is really damn advanced. The thing can freaking map out the whole room and any people in it in complete 3D, it can detect multiple people in the room, and many more. The Xbox One itself is okay I guess but the whole XB1 show is about the Kinect and how it impacts the overall experience. So what are your thoughts on this rival console?

    Game play and graphics wise, its not a bad wee console. Had a go of playing one this evening and its actually not too bad. The controller is slightly smaller than the 360's one, therefore fits better which is good. Menus are pretty much the same. Nothing too bad to say about it really. I just prefer my PS4 ^_^

    Iím pretty sure MS doesnít "spy" random conversations to ban people. They take actions for conversations that have been reported by other players. I highly doubt any American company would dare spying conversations openly since the Watergate scandal.

    This was proven true by me. I had an XBox One (Just for Forza 5), and I was on a Skype call. About 50 people were just spam-calling me just so that I could lose an online race. So basically I said (Apologized for swearing):

    "**** you! Go the **** away already!"

    And on about the 2nd time I said that, I was immediately taken back to the Home screen and a Banned until 12/31/9999 message appeared. After that, my console shut off... permanently.

    However, until that point, I was enjoying Forza 5; it's a really good game. So if you're a Forza fan, get Forza 5 for the XBox One, but beware...

    Exactly, because you need to be connected to XBOX live to turn on your console (I was console banned basically).

    I'm sorry but you're full of ****. You don't need XBOX Live to turn on your console, and you can play offline games without XBOX Live. An internet connection is required only for first time setup and day one system update, and XBOX Live itself is only required for multiplayer and apps/services beyond games.

    I don't believe you own an XBOX One, I think you're just posting crap for the sake of it. It's fun to hate on the XBOX One, but you're pushing the disinformation too ****ing far.
