Hey guys,

I'm looking to replace my turtle beach x12 headset as my main gaming headset and i saw that these were on sale for $35 at best buy today. I hear steelseries makes good sounding headphones and i've never been impressed with the sound quality of my current x12's. Has anyone used these? I was looking for something that i could use with my PC, Xbox One (already have the stereo adapter that accepts the 4-pole connection that's included with the 5hv3) and something to use with my 360. What do you guys think?

@bluesdrive: i had some luck doing the long press on the power button to turn it off but haven't tried unplugging it. I'll try that next time. hopefully they'll continue to improve the UI. Going to a fullscreen achievemen app or friendlist as a default seems silly. Why can't you snap a smaller window by default with that stuff? that way it wouldn't be taking me so far out of my game or video app.

I have 3 broken xbox 360 consoles, power supply between the 3 of them and no controllers to go with them. Is there any place other than ebay that i could get any money out of them? pretty sure none of their manufacturer seals are intact. Suggestions of places to take them to other than the dump?

@pazy: yeah it seemed that way. I'm new to the console too and i'm only guessing but it took a really long time for DR3 to install and i don't recall ever bing prompted to update it or initiate any download/patch for any games. I only see the install prompt when i put a new disc in. That said, the suspend feature is something kinda awesome i didn't even know i wanted. Stopped playing DR3 last night and hit the power off button, played it again this morning, jumped right back to where i was with hardly any loading at all.

just bought my xbox one friday. it was super slow for Dead rising 3 but not as slow for Battlefield, CoD Ghosts, or anything i downloaded. My thought was that it's a combination of the disc install and the long patch download/install. If you're used to PC games installing/updating on steam, it should feel similar IMO.

i just bought one this past friday. I picked the xbox one because i wrote down all the games i want to play for the rest of the year on a piece of paper and Xbox One came out ahead because it was the one with console exclusives i knew i'd want to play (Halo Master Chief Collection, and Forza Horizon 2). I can handle a few less lines of resolution on a consol and i can always play indie games on my PC. I picked up BF4, CoD Ghosts, Strider, and Dead Rising 3. Having a lot of fun with all of them. No regrets.

Hey all, new Xbox One owner here. Apologies if this has already been asked but does anyone else have the issue of achievement popups seeming to stay on the screen for 30 seconds at a time unless you acknowledge them via a long press of the guide button? If this is standard does it annoy you?
