Yep. Had to go into the server list and tried to join a CR game, it sent me to the premium download page then had to manually select, download and install on Xbox One. Also the install stopped twice. Did manage to get some rounds in afterwards tho, more than I've been able to do of late.

@sterling: @mister_v: LOL. I'm having the opposite issue of seeing people asking for Ammo and having to chase them down and throw it at their heads as they don't wait to be resupplied. Crazy how people still don't know/care how to play BF games.

Yeah that is some nice free PR right there. Pretty classy though as far as PR goes.

2nd last mission on Dead Island and my save got corrupted. Not a big deal as i got to see the best parts of the game but the fact It was left unfinished was irritating.

For the first time I ran into this situation from the other way round. I went into the Xbox One store to have a look at everything and try out the demo's. I was trying out Forza and overheard the Xbox staff talking to a guy in his 30s (the age is not relevant for the story as I'm also in my 30s). The guy was telling her how he is a big fan of the Xbox and he loved playing the Gran Turismo games on it, he then looked over to the wall that had Killer instinct and a kinect wave race demo playing with a BF4 video playing on the back wall and commented "I see the new Halo game is out too" and expressed his excitement.

The girl was left with level of confusion over her face that was hysterical but just nodded and said, "then you will probably enjoy Forza 5 as it is pretty similar to Gran Turismo" and brought him over to the stand. I didn't get the feeling he was trying to be funny, he seemed genuine.

Meh, its a console launch bud. Unfortunately its the same every time. I guess with systems being so expensive it just adds to people needing some type of comfort that they have made the right choice in whatever one they pick. It also seems that this time round its the first time I can think of that there's a noticeable PC parity with the new console and neither one is really pushing something unique that the other doesn't have (Blu-ray with PS3, motion controls for the Wii etc) which detracts a little from the buzz. I'm with you however, I wish people would remember that this shit happens every time and just enjoy it for once, it'll settle down and reach a level between systems that keeps most happy. I'm picking up the XB1 and am looking forward to getting some Dead Rising 3 time in (I'd say one of my favorite series on current gen).

Enjoy your new console.

While my pre-order not being released on the advertised date isnt a big deal I am a bit pissed at the lack of communication about it from the devs / publisher. They were fast enough to boast about becoming profitable on pre-orders alone but they are keeping a pretty low profile about this fuck up all the while boasting about the steam version being most played game etc..

Tempted to cancel my order as SR4 will be out by the time I get it and would rather play that now and pick up Payday 2 for $10 in the winter steam sale.

Pretty shoddy PR.
