    still 720p
    graphics no better than xbox360
    crashes constantly
    battlefield 4 unplayable
    COD ghosts crashes with memory errors
    kinect is lame, not wireless or usable unless your TV and XBOX are right next to each other
    no interest in using it to watch tv
    doesn't play xbox360 games
    controller feels cheesy

    anxiously awaiting SW updates
    Seems like MS dropped the ball on this one

    I'd return it and try another box. I've heard of issues but not all of those in one.

    I'm seeing in COD ghosts, there is a lot of background smoke/fog. I suppose that it to deal with the low resolution and procesor speed, not abke to draw a hires background and get a decend frame rate. Still, youd expect more from 2013 technology.

    BF4 is totally unplayable

    GT5 look really good so far

    Graphics no better than xbox360? I don't know what kind of TV you have, but there is clear graphical improvements in all games.
    I haven't had one crash, battlefield unplayable? I've also had no issues with Battlefield, or Ghosts.

    Controller also feels much better than the xbox 360 controller.

    I am very happy with my xbox one and have no issues whatsoever. Maybe you're just unlucky.

    While playing bf4 during escape the titan there are floating artifacts and if you explore around the console just reboots. Granted I think bf4 is buggy as hell but the console itself should not crash

    GT5? What is that?

    Do you mean GTA5? I thought that wasn't on XBox One?

    The Logitech G27 wheel and fanatech pedals do not work with xb1. Only the $399 thrustmaster tx wheel. Which of course does not work with xbox360.

    This is the biggest gripe of mine about Xbone.

    3rd party games that are developed for both machines will suffer a fair amount at first here. Seems initial reports are that the PS4 games are getting patches to alleviate frame lag, and run in native 1080 instead of 720. Xbone is not currently getting these patches.

    I have heard so much bad stuff about both new console that it made me stop and wait before i buy either.

    The PS4 apparently doesnt have any great games out yet. The games on Xbox One dont look super better than on 360. Plus you have all the possible reliability issues of a new platform..

    Someone in avsforums just post wondering which game was buggier, BF4 of CODG.

    Sure seems the developers rushed these games through.

    Finally they are going to release a non-kinect version next month!!! for $100 less. I think this will help the poor sales. I will get one probably at the end of the year.
