Mine has shipped and the embargoes are up, reviews are out!

Polygon's review is insane:

Do you know why the Apple TV is taking years to develop? Because Apple won't put up with the bullshit that Microsoft thinks people will. Read Kotaku's review for specific examples (like the IR blaster turning your TV off if its on when you tell the xbox to turn on).

The PS4 reviews were damning with faint praise, the xbox one seems similar but just so much of it is half baked that Kotaku gives it this final verdict (for most people, the hardcore are going to muddle through we know):

I passed and cancelled my pre-order a ways back.   The XBOX360 is a decent to solid media center extender.  The One won't run MCE at all  http://www.neowin.ne...center-extender

 

The One also only acts as a 'play to' device, so it can't automatically see network shares/etc.

HDMI pass through on XBOX One will not pass HD audio or Surround Sound formats, only PCM 2.0

Yep, half baked bullshit. It'll get fixed but it's dumb.

I don't mind being the guinea pig. And yeah, I have more games now than I could play in my lifetime. It just rankles me that both systems are screwing up obvious, easily fixable stuff at launch.

Not interested in the Kinect. Not interested in talking to my console which seems to be the only way for the easily navigate the UI.

It uses Microsoft's Audio Renderer from Windows 7/8 which also has this problem.   FYI, games will output DD, but in windows mode.. watching movie lets say, no DD output, only two channel PCM over optical.

 

 

Microsoft has known of this problem since before Windows7 SP1, so I don't know if it will change; it was unfixed in Windows 8/8.1

So long as the console doesn't totally bomb, I will eventually get one.  But aside from being interested in Killer Instinct (was a huge fan back in the day) there's absolutely nothing MS has exclusive or announced that I care at all about.

 

And yeah, the no surround pass through sucks, the Kinect stuff sucks, the UI is pretty ugly to me (I prefer the PS3 UI over the PS4, though), and it seems like its all very beta-test-y.  The PS4 just works, even if there's stuff missing, whereas the One seems to be like 80% there on everything.

First the shark tank and now this: http://kotaku.com/th...ones-1469287585
 

MS is really trying to push the PR extravaganza on people for the One.  I remember the huge party they had for Kinect in Manhattan.  Anyone else think its just a bit much?  Personally, I only sort of miss the "Sega does what NintenDON'T" days and like that Nintendo and Sony have more or less focused on their games and quality instead of theatrics.  Unless I'm totally forgetting something that either company has done recently.

 

Also, anyone see the reviews for Ryse?  Yikes.

The only games that seem to be getting positive reviews are Forza and Dead Rising 3. And of those two, only Forza is getting really decent reviews. MS is really pushing it though. I must have seen 4 commercials alone for the XBone last night. I've yet to see one for the PS4.

Sony pushed the PS4 hard with the "Greatness Awaits" ads more over the last month or so and not really that much right now.  Then again, they've had so much buzz around the PS4 that maybe they didn't really need to advertise as much as MS did.  Nintendo pulled ads for the Wii around Christmas when it came out because they were wasting money advertising a product that was so popular that all stock in stores/online would disappear right away, so maybe Sony is doing something similar?

 

Anyone pick up an Xbox One last night/this morning?  I'm curious to hear some perspective from a real owner.

Fing DERP Microsoft. If you start the system with the charge and play connected it confuses the hell out of it and won't progress. Had to reboot, unplug and restart.

Sam,

Did you order yours from Amazon? If you did, pretty good shipping for it to show up at the door on release day.
