What happened with your RROD? I've heard far less horror stories about MS support for broken consoles than Sony support, even though the volume was much higher.

When it first occurred, they told me that even though I had a functioning warranty (which was scheduled to elapse not too long after) they didnt replace broken units, they just repaired them. They told me to send my unit in, and when I did they ostensibly fixed it and sent it back to me. The joint stopped working again a week after I got it back. I called again and they told me to repeat the process. That happened a total of four times before I finally said you know what, send me a new one, I'm tired of this nonsense (each time I sent it in the process took about 3 weeks to get there, fix it and have it sent back mind you). The customer service rep hit me with the, your warranty expired a few weeks ago when I made that demand. I was like, the problem started while I was still protected and I've been in contact with you all throughout the process and you people a.ssured me that you were going to fix it so I expect it to be fixed and fixed for good. Dude said, send it in again and we'll fix it but we can't send you a replacement unit because the warranty expired. I said fu*k you guys very much (not to homes mind you, it's not his fault or anything but I said that to myself), and went out and bought a ps3.

I googled that sh*t down the line and there was a theory floating around that they were doing that to people with warranties that were close to endin to save loot on the massive hardware failures with that red ring sh*t. Stalling them and then not replacing their units. Either way, the sh*t blew me and I stopped rocking with Microsoft. Loved my 360 otherwise, but that was a deal breaker for me.

Not mad at that. To be honest, if I woulda had that same experience I'd probably have an X Box One right now. Wasn't meant to be I guess. Very happy with my PS4 right now though so I'm straight.

Bad customer service is always a hard thing to take. But believe the majority of people with problems get good service.

Sucks that it can't be always that way.

I sent in so many consoles for RRoD that I made several additional live accounts so I wouldn't be sending in "too many" (although it's supposed to go by physical address; they probably just didn't care). I'm not sure how many I sent in... at least 10. Probably double that, really. Basically I started getting RRoDs, sending them in, and flipping 'em when the refurb came in.

Unfortunately, Sony didn't give me any opportunity like that. I'm not sure why I say unfortunately, considering I'm still playing the hell outta my PS3 and I'm glad it works well. I bought a Jasper 360 back in 2009 that's never had a problem, either, so it's not like MS didn't start getting better.

MS really did a good job w/ the RRoD support, just based on the fact that it was so rampant they hardly even checked 'em when they arrive. I think only 2 that I ever sent in got denied. All the rest went smoothly, and I got a free XBL 1-month card every time (and a nifty plastic bag that comes with new consoles).

If an Xbox One was on your wish list this year, and you were very good (or have generous friends), you'll want to rip into that bad boy as soon as you can. But before you pop in Dead Rising 3 for some zombie mayhem, take this opportunity to introduce yourself to your new console and all its features. You'll be spending a lot of time together, after all.

Setup doesn't end with pressing the power button — there are plenty of new features to master before you can move around your new console as quickly as you did with the previous generation. Luckily for you, we've created this handy little guide with everything you need to get started.

Setting Up

First things first: Unbox and set up that new console. Confirm that you have everything you'll need, then remove that ugly warning sticker and position the console near your TV on a stable surface that's free of clutter and well ventilated.

Next, you'll want to connect your console to your TV and set-top box using the HDMI cables included in the Xbox packaging. If you're using a wired Internet connection, connect to your router. You can set up a Wi-Fi connection after you turn on the console.

Microsoft has excellent step-by-step instructions on the more detailed aspects of the setup process, so we won't cover that here, but check them out if you're having trouble figuring out which cable goes where.

Now you're ready to turn your Xbox One on for the first time. Revel in its glory for a moment or two before you go through the process of setting up your Xbox Live account, connecting to Wi-Fi and other basic tasks. We trust that you can handle those on your own.

The Xbox will also prompt you to download an update before you're truly up and running. Once all that is completed, you can move on to phase two: making it awesome.

Prepare Your Living Room

Your Xbox will walk you through the setup process for connecting to your television, but one thing that you shouldn't forget to do is to set up your surround sound in your home theater (if you have one). Go to the Settings menu and select "TV and One Guide," then "Troubleshooting." There will be an option to tick "Surround Sound (Beta)." As noted, this function is still in beta, so you may experience some problems depending on your setup and device.

You might also want to reconfigure your living room. Those who used the Xbox 360 with Kinect will be happy to note that they need about a foot-and-a-half less space than with the last gen console — 4.59 feet as opposed to 6 feet of space to run in place, jump or dance. If this requires a new living room arrangement, start thinking of alternatives while you move onto the next step.

Download Your Apps

Your new Xbox One is an entertainment hub, home to all of your movies, TV and music, but most of these features require an app download. We recommend the following:

Blu-ray Player to play your Blu-ray discs

Xbox Video so you can browse the latest movies or shows to rent or buy

Audio CD so you can play your extensive Kenny G collection at your leisure

and, of course, all the web apps you'll need: YouTube, Skype, Hulu, Netflix, etc.

Another app you'll definitely want to install is the Upload Studio app, which allows you to edit and share your recorded gameplay clips to Facebook or YouTube. Since Xbox will easily record impressive gameplay with a simple voice command, you'll be able to show off your skills almost instantly.
Install Your Games

Even if you're not playing them at the moment, installing your new games to your hard drive will ensure that you're not thwarted by a scratched disc (or a long download) when it's time to actually play. Games will install as soon as you place the disc in the console.

In the future, however, you have a choice to make: Are you sticking with physical discs or opting for digital releases? There are pros and cons to each. A digitally downloaded game means that you will save tons of physical space by not storing games and cases, and that you'll never deal with a scratched or lost disc. However, an actual disc can be traded back for credit.

Learn the Language

Xbox One's voice recognition feature makes it easy to control your console using only vocal commands, allowing you to switch quickly between apps or pause a TV show without messing with the controller. But first, you need to learn the language of the gaming console.

Don't worry, this is going to be much easier than your high school Spanish class. If you want to learn by the book, try downloading the Speech Tutorial app from the App Store. It's free and won't take up too much space on your hard drive, and you can always delete it when you've mastered the commands.

Here are a few basic commands for those who want to dive right in:

Xbox, on: "Xbox, on" will turn on your console, but "Xbox, off" will never turn it off (you need to say Xbox turn off). The world may never know why.

Xbox: Saying "Xbox" at the dashboard essentially tells your Kinect, "Hey, listen up," and you'll see the console listening for a further command. It will also bring up a list of basic, global console commands for you to choose. If you accidentally say "Xbox" in normal conversation, just say "Stop listening."

Xbox, Select: When said at the dashboard or one of the sub-menus, this command brings up an overlay so you can select the onscreen tile you want.

Xbox, start a party: This will bring up your party menu. Unfortunately, it will not supply the Doritos and Mountain Dew.

Xbox, go home: Go back to the Xbox One dashboard immediately, no matter where you are.

Xbox, go to settings: If you need to access your settings on the fly, this will do the trick. You can also access the settings by hitting the Menu button, which is located on the controller where the 360's Start button used to be.

Xbox, watch [channel name]: Now we're getting into the good stuff. a.ssuming you've connected your cable box, your Xbox One will keep track of your local TV listings. No need to remember the channel number, just say "Xbox, watch Food Network" and the console's IR blaster will take care of it for you.

For those of you who fear the Kinect and all its power, you can disable the Kinect from the Settings menu by deselecting "Kinect On." You can also disable Kinect for voice chat if you prefer the headset, or see exactly what your Kinect is seeing by checking out the various camera shots.

Practice Snapping


[pic - click to view]



Snap is one of the most exciting new features of the Xbox One. It allows you to open certain apps in a small side panel on the righthand side of the screen, without leaving the game or app you're currently using. Just say, "Xbox, snap [app name]" to open, and "Xbox, unsnap" to close. The "Xbox, switch" command will allow you to toggle when using two apps simultaneously.
Make It Yours

You'll also want to customize your dashboard by pinning all of your favorite apps to your homepage. Create a new pin by pressing the Menu button while highlighting the app's tile, then selecting "Pin to Home" from the pop-up menu.

You can also change the tiles on the Home screen to one of the 21 available colors by going to your Profile on the Home screen, clicking "My Profile," and then "Choose Color."

Finally, you can upgrade that tiny Gamerpic to a fullscreen, 1080p version by going to your profile settings and selecting "Set Gamerpic." You can choose from a selection or build around your current avatar.

The most important aspect of setting up your Xbox One properly is that you're taking the time to make it yours. Microsoft has added plenty of features to ensure that you're able to use the console for all of your entertainment needs; it's up to you to customize it.

2 out of 3 of those have clear disagreements according to metacritic, and the other one is a complete off the wall comparison, not that the other two weren't.
