  1. Buying Xbox One


    questions before I buy one:

    Can it play used Xbox One game discs?

    Can I play offline?

    Can I save data to small 32GB USB drives?

    Are there any known defects or overheating issues like the 360?

    thanks

    :)

    I could swear I read that it will be a simultaneous launch, and this is the reason for a limited number of countries it is available.

    That's what I've mostly read but I guess you never know untill they tell us lol.

  4. Buying Xbox One

    Hi there,

    To answer your questions -

    Can it play used Xbox One game discs? - Yes, games will need to be downloaded/installed on the console before you can play them, and you will need the disc in the machine when you play them.

    Can I play offline? - On your home console, yes.
    This page
    will have more info on offline play.

    Can I save data to small 32GB USB drives? - No, 32 GB isn't large enough.

    This page
    lists the minimum requirements for an external storage device on the console.

    Are there any known defects or overheating issues like the 360? -I've had a One since launch day and have never had any overheating issues.

    Hope this helps.

    Buying an Xbox One!

    Hello "NxtDoc1851" :)

    Having to take a couple of extra seconds to access what I need with the controller doesn't warrant the extra $100 for the Kinect for me, sorry.

    Have a nice day or afternoon or night :)

    Buying an Xbox One!

    I think people definitely need to try kinect for themselves. I thought I'd enjoy using it........turn's out I hate it. I'd of gone kinectless if the choice was there at launch.

    Not Buying Xbox One

    Thanks Demonic, I hardly ever post, but this is really a deal breaker for me. I trade games with family to play all the time, that means 2 users are playing it from one household to the next, not exactly ripping off Publishers at all. I have bought games
    because I played a friends copy and loved it! Trading games to play is just advertising. What are publishers saying? Is used game trade destroying their companies? What if another company implants a satellite chip that allows only one user to use a product--never
    to be resold or traded--would that be fair?
