tx racing wheel, and xbox one in general

First and foremost,

Have had issues with x1 ever since release date when my pre order came in, blu ray playback is to say the least a JOKE, lip sync is off during playback, making it unbarable to watch a BD as it seems to go in and out all the time.

Party chat and in game chat is great crisp and clear when it works!

Games still take forever to install!

try to play a game that I bought and installed with the disk being in the slot drive and my x1 tells me that it doesn't recognize and prompts me to the store to buy the game again, very frustrating and just plan uncalled for.

 

on to the pos $399.99 steering wheel

the whole upgrading firmware is an absolute joke, x1 has hard time recognizing the wheel even after all updates are done, doesn't seem to have any more feedback than the 360 brand wheel that cost $99.00, why does Microsoft make it so hard on third party companies to make accessories, as far as forza 5 goes, what a kick in the face, any one interested in x1 with forza and tx racing wheel hit me up, looking into pc gaming as Microsofts idea of next gen gaming is completely LOST!!!!

First of all, maybe do some research before calling it a joke. The blu ray issue can be fixed with a setting. Please use the search tool and you will find your answer to that. Party chat I will admit needs a bit of tweaking but still works. So the system is fine it sounds like user error mostly. The game installs from disc take me less than 30 minutes which is totally acceptable. If yours is slow, again check the support forums and they have tips to speed that up. As for the wheel, I don't have any experience with that so I can't comment. Maybe do some research before dropping 400 bones on a peripheral for 1 game. Lastly you cannot advertise you are selling on the forum. I suggest editing your post to take that part out or you could get reported.

As the other reply said, search the forums about the lip sync issue.  Surprisingly its not the Xbox at fault this time, its either you or your TV.  Just go into the Blu Ray settings and untick an option called 24hz playback (or something like that)  Basically if you TV is incapable of playing then you will get lip sync issues.

Regarding the games taking forever too install, that is just the way that Microsoft chose to handle updates and installs at the same time.  Basically the Xbox One downloads the update, starts to install the game once the download is finished, then updates the game (or something like that) its not actually the game taking forever to install.

Regarding the steering wheel, cant really blame Microsoft  for the quality of it, I mean its a third party steering wheel, they had very little too do with it.  Maybe next time read some reviews or something before dropping $400 on a peripheral?

As for the other two complaints, ye those are valid, but its like every system at launch/shortly after, its unfinished and needs updating.  Especially as Microsoft had to practically rewrite their entire OS after the DRM issue after last years E3.

yes it is Microsofts fault, they are the ones that make it so hard for  third party companies to make a wheel, not to mention they are suppost to do quality control on the things used with their consoles, all im saying is they really made it a hassle with this one and that the overall feel is terrible, I feel like I just paid 500 for console along with 60 for game 400 for wheel, bought a playseat to throw the whole thing together and it just feels like im testing their crappy software out

They haven't made it "hard" for 3rd parties to make peripherals. There's a lot of new technology with the new controllers and the 3rd parties haven't had chance to catch up with yet and develop to be the best they can be. Give it a year when everyone has had time to develop their accessories, the market will be booming with great stuff from both Microsoft and 3rd parties.

The Thrustmaster TX is getting plenty of bad reviews, Amazon is full of "dead out of the box" reviews. The issue is more than likely with your wheel, InsideSimRacing gave the wheel good reviews but theirs worked.

I will agree that MS has shown no love to 3rd party wheels. The 360 only had one high end wheel (Fanatec) and it's not compatible with the One.

Sound very negative and the company that made the wheel put it at 300 dollars to sell. Well u can always sell your Xboxone and get Ps4 that has knack and indies, Killzone and be bored with nothing to do.
