So I'm a fresh recruit. I have never owned an Xbox product (other then the Xbox 360 controller I bought for my PC). Xbox is pretty new to me. Any advice for a new Xbox One owner? Good exclusives? Cool features that the $ony play$tation doesn't have?
Hey imnotGEOFF, thanks for that, I knew the Xbox button on the controller turned the console on/off but I didn't know about the Xbox symbol on the Console itself did that.
I downloaded Neverwinter last night and have been enjoying it, but I seem to be having some issues with it. Its stuck at the main title screen and tells me to "Press A on any controller" but won't respond to it. Controller seems to be working find as
I can play other games. Other then that, The Xbox has been a great experience so far.
If your hard drive does fill up you can also uninstall any games you don't really play anymore and just reinstall them later. Mine filled up after about two months of me owning the console and still don't have an external hard drive.
Also, September 16th Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will be free for Games with Gold. It was one of my favorite titles on the new console. Be sure to check that out.
Its definitely Not just you. I'm not surprised that neither consoles are mind blowing. For me, it just came down to sonys horrible customer service. I was on the fence as to which way I was going with next gen as I wanted to move to the next version of
the NHL franchise. Sony decided that shift the blame to me for a specific issue I was having and hid behind the ToS as an excuse for not helping me. They lost a long time customer over the sum of $18 bucks. Sony is notoriously tight. That coupled with
the fact that they undid all the good things the PS3 accomplished was enough to introduce me to the Xbox.
Looks like Boozy, Scratch and Geoff have you pretty well covered with information so far.
Right off the bat, an external HDD is not a necessity (the 500GB or 1TB internal, depending on console model) will keep you going quite a long while, but it will eventually fill up. So if you already have a compatible HDD, use that of course, but I wouldn't
recommend going out and buying one for this sole purpose as by the time you need one you can inevitably buy the same amount of storage for less.
I see you're interested in NHL. If you have EA Access, as Boozy recommended, you can already play the full version of NHL 16! EA Access subscribers get a 10-hour free trial of the game, plus you get a 10% discount on the game digitally. The full version
of NHL 15 is also in The Vault, which is an area of EA Access where subscribers can play full games for free for the entirety of their subscription.
