The lack of backward compatibility wasn't a daft idea really, it just wasn't possible until very recently with word being that they've only just figured out how to do it. With the move towards PC friendly architecture in the current generation nobody thought backwards compatibility would ever be a thing, yet Microsoft have somehow managed to pull it off and for that you can only applaud them. As an Xbox One owner who sorely misses Marvel vs Capcom 3 it's incredible news.Microsoft at E3 say it will be possible to play 360 games on the One. Just an utter daft idea not to have done this as standard, but at least it'll now be possible. And to me it ties in with their 'One' philosophy; I don't want two consoles!
Mate, I've got one, and it's utter gash. It might suck you off if you have Kinect, but most people bought one without it. It's little wonder it's getting a radical overhaul.The Xbox interface is actually very good, many requested new features have been added and others tweaked on a monthly basis since release, it's practically been community designed by this point. It's especially sweet if you have Kinect.
It's being entirely revamped with the release of Windows 10 anyway though.
The way it works isn't like the Xbox 360 or the original PS3's for some reason. The rights holders have to approve it, and some games like MvC are in a grey area. I guess because it download it, even when you put in a disc. I'm, in the same boat with Robotron.Shit I never thought of that, I forgot about the licence expiring. Are still able to download the game on 360 if you've previously bought a digital copy though? If so then it ought to still be available to people with a physical copy on Xbox One? I dunno though.
It is, but that's because it's a hobby project. I'm not quite sure how closely related Pentium 3 and Xenon actually are, my impression was that Xenon, as a Power PC based chip was significantly different from the Oldbox's P3.The problem with Xenia is that it's a real shitty emulator. The difference in architecture between a 360 and a PC is vast, as similarly is vast difference between 360 and Xbox One. The 360 and the original Xbox were much more closely related. There's no reason Microsoft wouldn't have been keen to offer backwards compatibility had they been able to do so before now; it really is a huge breakthrough if they've managed it as well as they claim.
I have no desire whatsoever to talk to my console. That's why I didn't get a Kinect. Nor it seems, do most people, given how many people opted to either trade in the Kinect before it was sold separately, and how many opted for the Kinectless console when they offered 2 SKU's. However, designing the dash around Kinect, and not bothering to make it usable with a controller, which is a valid input device is bad design, pure and simple. It has to work with both, and work well.I don't see how you can complain about an interface designed for use with Kinect if you knew it was designed thus and yet didn't get the Kinect. Microsoft always made it quite clear that Kinect was central to the console's operation. They only began shipping units sans the Kinect last summer because the community demanded that they do so; if you made the choice to hamper your experience this way then you've only yourself to blame imo.
The new dash redesign will be even more Kinect friendly as it now has Cortana central to the experience. Voice controls are such a quality addition to home console functionality that I don't think one can be justified in opting out against recommendation and then complaining that the system seems primarily designed to be used with them.
You will do eventually, I'm sure. Voice control is a superb addition to the living room. Not long ago vast swathes of people were boldly predicting that they'd never have any desire to use their phones for anything other than texting and making calls.I have no desire whatsoever to talk to my console. That's why I didn't get a Kinect. Nor it seems, do most people.
I don't think either console recognises or adapts to your voice. It's not difficult to learn how to use the voice controls efficiently though so I can see how you'd get that impression. You learn how to use it rather than it learning how you speak.I use voice control on ps4 and never had a problem. Apparently adapts to your voice.
i have a few friends with X1 with kinect. i was laughing that they are really trying so hard to use the voice recognition. almost a loud voice and kept on saying the word to no avail.I suppose, and I'm only basing that off me not having to change my voice for it. Saying that, I don't have much of an accent so voice commands tend to just work for me regardless.
