Do you agree with Alock1's statement that Uncharted is as much of a shooter as Halo?

    I pre-ordered my console on Thursday and will likely get Forza 5 to go along with the bundled Fifa 14. I don't want to be stuck with just a football and a racing game though so hopefully I'll be able to afford another.

    I will get one eventually. I have preordered Ps4 though.

    But now I am starting to think the xbox exclusives look a little better. Especially Titanfall

    Is Titanfall available on launch?

    Titanfall looks excellent but there doesn't seem to be much difference between the XB1 and XB360 versions, it's not the game that would make me go out and buy an XB1 on launch.

    EDIT: Actually it's PC too, excellent. Not much of an "exclusive".

    Dont think so

    Not many have a PC capable of running that. So it would be exclusive for many

    If the X360 can run it then most decent gaming rigs definitely can.

    It's an exclusive for people buying an XB1 who don't already have a X360 or €500+ PC. i.e. not many people.

    This will be my console of choice, I'm just not sure when to get it. Ideally on launch day but with FM14 and BF4/CoD on pc I might be quite busy. I'll probably pre order at weekend and just use it casually for Fifa at first.

    It doesn't really matter how exclusive it is.

    You only get Fifa 14 for free on pre-ordered consoles so if you want that game you may as well get it at launch (if you have the money, like).

    Yeah. It really doesn't matter.

    I think I'll go for either Battlefield 4 or Watch Dogs along with Forza.

    I can't make my mind up whether Watch Dogs looks great or a bit rubbish.

    The game-play footage makes it look great but I can't help but think it's just Assassins Creed in a modern setting with some fancy gadgetry thrown in. It's going to have to be excellent seeing as it's out two months after GTAV.

    Rubbish.


    Anyway, as always, Forza is the only thing I'm interested in now. Let's hope they've actually done what they said they'd done in 4 and give us full steering control back.

    Really? Most people own lap tops or tablets now. Not many buy PC's for home with up to date graphics cards.

    The Xbox One version is, apparently, exclusive to Xbox.

    For a start, you don't need a cutting edge computer to match up to the one. That's besides the point, I know loads of people that can and will run Titanfall.

    But it's not really applicable to this thread. Let's keep to XBone talk.

    I think people underestimate how popular PC gaming still is, steam for example, is absolutely enormous now.

    To be fair, the Respawn studio isn't even working on the 360 version - somebody else is with input from somebody at Respawn.

    I think Xbox One/PC is the place to be for Titanfall.

    Yeah my dad's obviously given me permission to use his account.

    I wouldn't want to sign up to Xbox Live under my dad's name because then that Xbox Live account would potentially not work with my other accounts, Netflix etc.

    What's the solution?

    You can't have two accounts on one console unless you pay Gold twice right?

    Maybe Sky won't even care. If they will then you'll probably have to sacrifice one or another.

    Mine is pre-ordered as well. Liked the way your online progress will follow over from the 360, and as my xbox HDD is giving corrupt messages to the likes of GTAV, it was the right time instead of just getting a replacement 360.

    I was hoping for watchdogs, but not sure what game to go with on release. One is defo Fifa 14 anyway.

    You can have a Family Gold account which allows up to four on one console for one price, but I'm not even sure that would work since the XBO signs you in using skeletal recognition. I could kill my dad and use his skeleton whenever I wanted to log into Sky, but that wouldn't be entirely practical since I'm not sure voice commands would then work optimally as the XBO detects the speaker and matches it to the appropriate skeleton. I'd have to set his skull and jaw on some kind of pulley system and insert a speaker into his oral cavity, using a microphone to then send voice commands from him whilst hiding my own mouth from the camera using my hand.

    How does the same system handle twins or triplets btw?

    The way I see it one of three things will occur:

    • I'll still be able to log in just as before and the new terms & conditions won't change anything.
    • I'll be able to log in only after my dad has added me as an authorised user of his Sky account.
    • I won't be able to log in at all as Sky won't simply allow it once the discrepancies between my Xbox Live account details and the Sky account detail I'm using are collated.

    What games are you getting, MrA?

    I've pre-ordered BF4 along with Forza 5 and the free copy of Fifa 14.

    Are you getting a second controller?

    What Xbox 360 footage have you seen? The Xbox 360 version has been shipped to a different developer, so I'm not sure it's going to be nearly as good as Xbox One. Plus, Xbox One version will have dedicated servers.

    Xbox One will be considered as the 'live account' ie. you only need one subscription for the console, and then all accounts made will be Xbox Live Gold.

    I don't believe that Sky will make a deal of this because Xbox is the only device they would be able to control this on.

    Just Fifa so far. Not decided on what other game I'll get. I know the manager in Gamestop so he will swap out games and stuff for me on release.

    I play a bit of everything really. Battlefield, gtav, fifa, a small bit of CoD, Forza. Have them all. I just go through patches of playing one game, then reverting to another. I've seen a few mention Titanfall, first I've heard of it.

    I wasn't aware of this.

    So the Family Gold account is only useful for households with multiple consoles then?

    I'll be able to have just one Xbox Live account in my name and both my girlfriend and I would then be able to have separate Live accounts on the one console?

    Is this a change from the system on the 360 or have I just been under the wrong impression of how it all works?

    You know Fifa is a digital download and cannot be swapped, right?

    As i said in the other topic. Get your dad to set up a sub account for yourself, and just use that. I do the same with as you, i don't have sky, use my fathers Sky Go for football. He owns the main account, i have a sub account with my own login details and information.

    There's no extra charge for a sub-account then?

    No, you the device limit is still determined by the main account. So no matter how many sub account you have you can only register two devices across all accounts. Apart from that it's no extra charge.

    Cheers, man. So even if the Xbox won't me onto my dad's Sky user/password anymore I can have him set me up as a sub-user for no charge and use my own password. Sounds good.

    Free Sky!

    I went into Gamestop to pay another bit off the Xbox, one of the lads told me there is a patch on day one, at least 1GB. I'll get it the midnight launch and leave it download over night as my connection is not the fastest. Most of ye prob read it somewhere already anyways.
