I know it's still early in the Xbox One life span, but I find some things quite ridiculous. Never mind the fact that I bought BF 4 and can't play online with a friend (apparently you have to pay extra for that? Seriously?), but I can't even chat with my friend.
First of all, the XBox One is very cool and whatnot, with it's cool new layout etc, but for god's sake, can you please implement an easier way of a) seeing messages b) seeing who's online c) managing a party chat.
You can say I'm over reacting, that all you have to do is press the Xbox button and then go to the left on the dashboard and click that section (whatever you want to call it, that displays your profile/friends etc), but on the 360, the "older" console, you pressed the xbox button and you saw it all there. Very easy. You didn't have to completely go to a different page and do all that.
SECONDLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, I cannot even enter a party chat with a friend!!!! I mean, what year is this?! How much did I pay for this console? Nevermind the headache of getting to your friends list, but when I click on my specific friend's name, there's NOT EVEN AN OPTION OF PARTY CHAT.
What's the secret? Don't tell me the Xbox One isn't capable of party chat... I'm already convinced to hop back on my 360 for a few months because I am just so disappointed in the lackadaisical layout of the Xbox One. Implement the simplicity of clicking on the Xbox button on the controller and having messages, friends, and PARTY CHAT... for god's sake...
