Games don't launch properly

My xbone keeps refusing to launch games. When starting a game I see the start-screen and after about five to ten seconds it gets back to home-screen.

This happens randomly. Dead Rising 3 and Battlefield 4 mostly. Sometimes it helps to eject and reload the disc, other times I have to completely restart the console.

However the issue seems to get worse.

Also my box keeps performing random actions while playing. For example in Dead Rising 3 it keeps starting the pause-menue, or, when paused, just resumes playing.

In BF4 it randomly presses RB, which might be my finger, but, however, it never is LB, so I assume this might be a hardware issue as well.

thx

Try disabling Kinect. Maybe you have a noisy background.

Rebooting the whole system (turning it off completely, not just standby), seems to work for me. But they need to patch this with a proper/permanent solution.

No noisy background, no difference with kinect being turned off.

I can't see how a patch will fix this, since nobody else I know except DocHolliday, experiences the same issues...

Hey Batlhuber,
 

It doesn't sound fun what you experiencing my friend. I have a couple of question if you don't mind.
 

  • Are you able to connect to those games at all?
  • Does the game reset or head back to the home page during game play?
  • Have you tried going through and uninstalling the game and re-installing it?

 

Reach back and let us know what you find.

Yes, after a reboot I can usually launch the games. Dead Rising never resets, but BF4 indeed sometimes does.

No, I did not reinstall the games, yet. Maybe I should do that, I will, propably, do it tomorrow.

You are not alone! I am having the exact same issue, and it is a problem for ALL of my disc-based games as well as downloaded games! Here are the games I am having the issue with. 5 to 10 seconds on the game's loading screen and then it goes back to the home screen, just like you.

1. Call of Duty Ghosts (disc)

2. Just Dance 2014 (disc)

3. Forza 5 (disc)

4. Killer Instinct (DL)

5. Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason (DL)

Just like you I have to hold down the power button for 5+ seconds and do a hard reset on my system to get games to load again. It's the only solution I've found. That plus I'm having the black screen TV issue that tons of people seem to be having. I want to chuck this $500 piece of garbage out the window.

Haha, good to know, I'm not the only one. This issue in addition to the fact, BF4 is one big pile of code-garbage makes me feel pretty b**t-f****d...
