    The overall complexity of the whole console is rather odd. Considering this is supposed to be a better version of the 360, it seems like they completely forgot what makes a good console. The dashboard layout is over complicated and doesn't make much sense. Party chat is strange and now sometimes people join your parties but you cannot even talk to them... What on earth is the point? The friends list has also changed a lot and is also too complicated. They're trying too hard to become something they're not. They got things right on 360, not perfect, but right. Behind all the over complexity, long never ending updates, strange party/friend shenanigans etc there is a beautiful console. It may be deep down, very deep down, but it's there.

    Great list! I really hate how you CAN'T SEND A F***ING VOICE MESSAGE. How the hell did they miss out on this basic functionality? Also, trying to appear offline can't be done from the Xbox itself. You have to go to and hope that the setting labelled for the 360 also applies to the One. Get your crap together, Microsoft.

    Anyone else's xbox one doing weird stuff? My xbox one has been very glitchy, I can't believe they haven't patched this stuff yet. Maybe mine just has it's own special problems. I pretty much have to sign in twice every time I start a game because the first time it will say "can't connect to xbox live", "must be signed in to use xbox live", "profile not found", etc. Sometimes after signing in twice it will get stuck on the screen saying "reading save device" or "signing in" and I have to actually unplug the console to get it to work. Now for the weird stuff: I will select one game and it will start a different one, I get kicked to the main menu for no apparent reason, sometimes I will be playing a game and hit the B button and it will go back to the main menu (wtf?). Even though I've had these problems I would never trade it for a PS4. I had a PS3 that I had to replace 4 times! I just wish xbox would get around to fixing these glitches. And it needs more games! And I'm not talking about the ones I used to play on Nintendo.

    I'm having the same issue - hitting the B button, in mid-battle (Unity), takes me right out of the game. And back to the home menu and / or snap menu. It basically makes the game unplayable. Have you found a fix for this? Is it a defective controller? Or a really bad hardware default??
  • raphaelle-deslandes - July 1, 2014 7:44 p.m.

    I was about to complain allot but I noticed you did the same for PS4, so I'll just say a few things: You can turn the kinnect OFF, who gives a crap about the batteries and I call it the X1. Also the controllers are so comfy they could double has prosthetic soft angel hands.

    Hey I just had a question. If I am downloading something to my Xbox one and I switch the input to watch TV will it cancel the download.
  • raphaelle-deslandes - July 25, 2014 9:47 p.m.

    Destiny beta? Am I right? :p And if you leave the xbox open the download will continu but still check it from time to time.

    Seriously like, this article must've been written when the person being drunk. I mean, complaining about the issue with batteries. ?..just play with a controller hooked up to a cable. .bingo..those that complain about the xbox one are jealous. .lets be honest, the xbox one is waay better than the ps4..only now the ps4 is getting the YouTube app an tv apos..when the xbox one already has it..Other than HD remakes..what great exclusive games does the ps4 have?
  • Kaldor - July 1, 2014 4:53 a.m.

    Ah yes because a NEXT-GEN console must be better if I either need to A) get used to having a controller that STILL uses AA Batteries or B) use a Cable Controller. Oh yeah we are all totally jealous on how Microsoft hasn't figured out how to have a Wireless Controller that doesn't need AA batteries in it...or if we don't want to use Batteries how we have to revert to using a controller type from 2 generations ago.

    Despite being a PC fan, I'm going to have to nitpick your little argument. The article is about the "little things" that are annoying, not some MAJOR issue with the system. So, yes, batteries are just some small annoyance. And not having access to YouTube on their TV? Dear God! That means they'll be forced to watch their daily videos on a PS3/XBOX 360! Or, heaven forbid, on their computer. Which, is what I suspect you're typing your complaint on. And, to finish off this counter-argument, I heard the PS4 has inFamous: Second Son, which I heard isn't half bad. I didn't hear too many complaints about the most recent Killzone game, nor the colorful shooter Resogun. And, predictably, there were the titles mentioned at Sony's E3 conference, Uncharted 4, The Order, and Bloodborne. Again, I'm a PC gamer, but both the Xbox One and the PS4 have their ups and downs. It would be downright foolish to say one is better than the other.

    If the xbox one is so good how comes the ps4 is outselling it???
  • MrMoobs - October 4, 2014 3:10 a.m.

    Because people are idiots.

    "Another Code" on Wii has been out for years...

    I'm sorry I didn't know about turning the Kinect off, now I know..... that's a good thing. The original Xbox I love and I'm in love with my Xbox 360, I'll never give up my 360. But I have my reasons for the XBOX ONE. For me, it's not about the console, it's about the games.
  • Bronxprince0408 - June 30, 2014 9:33 p.m.

    I totally agree with you. Thats a sony ponie.. Out of 23 things he complained about. I only agreed with one and thats the achievements. Its a little annoying the way you have to access it. Other then that it was a fanboy picking on a system..
  • xblue878x - April 8, 2014 6:54 p.m.

    I know how to kick ass in a video game, I assure you of that and I know how to kick ass in real life... that doesn't mean I have to show off and be a know it all
  • xblue878x - April 8, 2014 6:51 p.m.

    I've never played a PlayStation a day in my life. My point is kindness and treating people right is much better than showing off your Intelligence
