Enjoying it so far but I have kinda big hands and find the XB1 controller slightly more comfortable. Both Sony and MS did a great job with these controllers.

I'll comment briefly on my perspective and gaming habits regarding censorship in Australia. I don't believe entertainment (movies, TV, games, music) should not be censored and it should be up to the consumer to decide what is appropriate. The R18+ has helped allow a few retail games to be sold that previously never appeared on shelves, but recently Saints Row 4 was still censored with content removed for our region, so it still hasn't achieved the ideal outcome for consumers or developers. If I was to buy SR4 today I would import it (and rather easily with the help of the internet - either digitally or physically) as with any other game that has content modified or removed, the main reason being I want to experience a product the way the creators intended.
Dolby is coming later apparently. Picking up my console in a few hours and a little dosappointed myself (I run all my consoles through Astro Mixamp). Albert Penello made a statement on Neogaf:
Dolby Digital is coming post launch. This was a SW scheduling issue pure and simple, and I know people are disappointed, but we will have it.
Anyone with an HDMI receiver should be fine, as we pass the uncompressed 5.1 and 7.1 through HDMI as well as DTS. Even if you have a Dolby only HDMI receiver (which I'm not sure exists), you will still get 5.1 or 7.1 sound since those receivers should accept uncompressed surround.
For the Dolby only headsets, my understanding is that these will work but you will only get stereo audio since we only pass Stereo and DTS through the optical port. I have not tested this myself, but I'm told it works. Regardless, I understand this is an inconvenience, but again we're going to have Dolby coming.
This is unrelated to the HDMI-IN "Surround Sound" beta. To clarify, we default HDMI-IN audio to be converted to Stereo. However, we do have a feature you can access in TV settings/Troubleshooting that enables Surround Sound in "beta" form. If you check the box, and you get Surround, you're golden. We found some inconsistencies in STB's during testing and decided to disable it by default to insure a good initial setup experience for people.
I have to agree with @monetarydread. Grab yourself an Astro Mixamp and spend the extra dollars on a decent set of stereo headphones.
@omegax: Yeah. I'll be pleasantly surprised if Bigby isn't the killer and there is more to it than that. As soon as Crane said "There is a killer among us" it hit me.
Have you tested this configuration with a PS3 or 360? I don't see why it shouldn't work for the new consoles.
