Decided to sell my Xbox One and put the money towards a super swank GPU. Why? I've had my fill of 30fps, mostly.

That said, there's still a few games that I'd like to play on the system and, in time, I'll no doubt own one again. But I'll be waiting for a slim redesign with an SSD/hybrid drive. Anothe gripe: The mechanical HDD in the old one is starting to tick quite loudly, which bugs the hell out of me. :P

So, hooray for that, I guess?

You say smart. I'm guessing you haven't caught up with Subby's goings on since...

Wait, so you're selling your xbox to buy a super swanky gpu even though you just bought a GTX 970?

No I believe it pre-dates the new gpu saga.

I'm daft, but not that daft. :lol:

Other than the thought of missing out on the likes of Quantum Break, I've yet to regret my decision.

Has anyone bought the Elite? If you have, can you configure the paddles as extra buttons when you connect it to windows or are they always duplicates? What shows up in the control panel, just the standard 8 buttons or does it show 12 to include the paddles?

I have asked a bunch of random places and the best answer people give is "but you use the xbox app not the control panel....." #-o

I'm considering buying one just because of the annoyances Ive had lately with some games not recognising the DS4 but if the paddles only duplicate buttons and theres no way round that I'll stick with the cheapo one. Or maybe just try and find my 360 receiver in the garage......

So I've been hearing all day. Trouble is it says not available in your region when I try to download via the website.

Will try from the console tonight. Not that it matters I have it on PC anyway, but free's free. :D

My son got his new Xbox One just last night and he's asked me to help him set up streaming connectivity between his console and his Win 10 PC upstairs. It just doesn't seem to want to do it for some reason.

The console is on and on the same network but when I try and hit connect on the console that shows up in the Win 10 app it just says check it's turned on and it's on the same network - both which it is.

While I'm on the subject can I also mention what an utter car crash the new Xbox One UI is. Holy crap what did they do??

They tried to make an all-in-one entertainment box, and failed.

Have you enabled the streaming setting on the Xbox One?

Why doesnt everyone just clone the XMB, it was bloody perfect. Even Sony managed to fuck it up trying to make it look more modern.

Because not everybody likes the XMB? I prefer the PS4 interface to the PS3 one.

XMB at least is intuitive enough to use although it did feel excessive to a degree whereas this garbage just feels as if someone literally threw shit at the screen and were it landed it stuck design wise. Even on a controller which it was designed for it's not only about as unintuitive as you can get but also painfully sluggish/unresponsive as if it's almost broken.

Who finalised and greenlit this design? It makes the good old Blade UI look like and feel like a genuine masterpiece in comparison.

Also I did finally get streaming to work it seems there was some form of Windows update needed first.
