Getting ready for the 22nd

Post by v Hurricane v on Sun 17 Nov 2013 - 21:51

Today, I made the first step for the arrival of the Xbox One.


Tuesday I will trade in Battlefield 4

 
Left is the Play & Charge battery pack for the 360. Right is the Xbox One battery pack.

unless the battery pack is a higher capacity then the 360 one, i am worried about a "smaller" battery pack

That's why the first thing I am going to do is turn off the vibration motors.

Do not worry one bit. The old 360 battery is a Nmh battery, which are good, but nowhere near as good as a Lipo battery which i believe the xbox one controller has in it.

Edit. Xbox one controller still has a Nmh battery, just higher capacity.

Nope, it's a Lithium Ion not a Lithium Polymer.

In that case, no need to worry about battery life one little bit

I need to get a play and charge kit. So far, I've got the Day One Edition console (with FIFA 14), as well as Forza 5 & 12 Months Gold Subscription for £500. I also bought Battlefield 4 & Need For Speed: Rivals for the X1 as well. I don't know what I'm going to do first!

I have everything paid for. The only thing that is not paid for is Battlefield 4, that's only because Gamestop won't let you trade and pay for a game until it comes out. So tomorrow, that will get taken care of. So the console, extra controller with the play & charge kit, Forza 5 LE and Titan Fall are set. Supposedly the Microsoft Store will have my console here on the on Friday.

Is it Friday yet???

As I got my dispatch email on Friday, I'm very much expecting my console to arrive on Friday 22nd at the latest, but I'm hopeful for a cheeky Thursday delivery.

Been in and paid for all mine today at game. Cant wait until tomorrow night. What a tease as i was only a foot away from my xbox one and watched the chap behind the counter put my xbox, 3 games and my plug and play in a carrier bag and then put it out the back of the shop.

Well, I somehow don't move a console, tv, cable box, router, and modem for over a year and my cables were tied up in knots behind the television stand. It's like losing socks in the wash or headphone cables you neatly put up. Never fails!

Everything is ready today though!

So basically he's moaning because it's more of a simulation, and because he is evidently crap at driving Forza 4 is automatically better?

I think i'll gloss over his judgement and make my own...
