As a devoted 360 user and still the owner of 4 machines i was one of those who jumped ship and moved to the PS4 due to the direction that Microsoft were moving with the Xbox One and forced use of Kinect and many, many other changes that i wasn't willing to accept.
However due to Phil Spencer who for me has absolutely saved the Xbox One from impending failure, i now have a re-ignited interest in the Xbox One due to the backwards compatability thing and the look / speed of the new system update that is coming in November and the way he has changed my perception of the attitude of Microsoft towards the future of the Xbox One - still unsure though !
By far the best feature for me on the PS4 which is such a simple basic feature, is the 3.5mm jack on the controller which lets the user output the entire game sound to third party headphones.
As everybody knows all the latest flat panel large screen tvs have appalling sound and being able to listen to a game through a pair of headphones totally changes the game as you hear sounds that you never heard before and at the level of quality it deserves and means you don't have to invest in a surround sound system which gets used for a few months then starts to gather dust.
Anyway with Microsoft releasing the 'new updated controller' with 3.5mm jack, does anybody know if the sound from the whole of the game can be set to output through the controller instead of 'chat only'.
And if not, could this feature be added to the upcoming system update ?
Also as i've never used an Xbox One before could anyone tell me if the system has a 'Visualizer' for when your playing your own music over a network ?
Lastly - will the new dashboard update still include DAMNED ADVERTS - I really hate adverts on my console with a passion and is the only thing i don't like about my 360's !
Hope somebody can help with my question - cheers
