So during the Black Friday sales I decided to get an Xbox One X cause it was a pretty good deal. I've had a PS4 since launch basically and have gotten real familiar with how that system functions. The console XB1 though literally comes with no instructions, no nothing, and the website is kind of a mess to find info.
As a person that has been playing games and consoles for ages now this feels weird but the Xbox is kind of a weird system... and I feel kind of lost.
So I guess it's a question for the XB1 long time users out there who maybe have some crossover with the PS4 as well, how do you actually do stuff on this console?
Like on PS4 if I want to go to standby in the middle of a game I hold down the PS button and put the console to standby from the contextual menu, then just press the button again to wake my console up.
on the XB1 it seems like I need to set it to quick start from the power settings and then also hold the Xbox button down and the shutdown is actually a standby? I've been having issues with the console actually starting up when pressing the guide button on the controller, and from Googling I see this is a common issue.. but like.. is the controller supposed to turn itself off when the console does? Mine stays on and I don't think thats right but I just don't know.
The home screen or whatever it is seems kinda weird. It's a brand new system and I only have two games that came with it (RDR2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider) so does that thing fill out over time or something because currently I have big tiles showing me accessories menus and such. Do I have to pin something?
I dunno generally I haven't felt this lost using a console in a while. The interface is pretty snappy so it's not the horror stories I've heard from the Bombcast, but it is really weird. It's organized, I'll give them that.. but it feels like it's organized like a desktop rather than a home console. I used to think the PS4 XMB is kinda shitty but I do take that back, at least it seems games oriented while the XB1 dashboard so far seems like some weird android tablet interace.
