YES, you should upgrade your XB1 with a SSD or at least an SSHD!

I have both a 1TB Seagate SSHD and a 250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD on my XBone... When I first installed the SSHD I did a few load tests, here are some examples: GTAV SP = 106s --> 61; MGSV:TPP = 102s --> 79s; Forza6 Menu = 48s --> 30s, Monza Short 23.5s --> 17s
I misplaced my SSD benchmarks, but it is noticeably faster than the SSHD. On average, games load in half the time on the SSD versus the stock drive.

But there's another important reason for an SSHD or SSD upgrade... Open world games such as GTAV and Fallout 4 run with fewer framerate hiccups and less texture pop-in due to faster texture streaming. Happy

Important: MOVE your games to the external drive... If you copy them, it can actually slow load times as the XB1 appears to read and verify both copies.

I was shocked how many podcasts I heard praise this game in the game of the year choices. I have a very hard time believing it can stand beside games like MGS V, witcher 3, and others.

I remain highly skeptical.

I'm currently playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on the XB1 (about 2/3 complete) and while it's no Witcher 3 or MGSV, it is the best Tomb Raider I've ever played. It is more open world than the last game and has upgradable weapons and equipment including bows with fire/poison/exp arrows, pistols, rifles, shotguns, etc. This game feels as much like FarCry as Tomb Raider and is fairly lengthy... well worth $60. Also, actress Camilla Luddington does an excellent job as Lara Croft.

UbiBlog has details on a Far Cry Primal Deluxe Edition, and just what will make this version of their upcoming first person melee game so darned deluxe...
Corrected.

This is sad... Arkham Knight is a fantastic game, the best of the Batman:Arkham series, and deserves better.
After WBIE released the half-assed PC port, I picked up the Xbox One version and had absolutely no issues, other than it being 900p/30fps.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Shipped 12M on Day One

We should ignore ALL user reviews of any game (positive or negative) until a few days after release. It would be great if a site such as Metacritic offered a way to filter out early reviews, or provide a graph of positive/mixed/negative versus time. Between the paid reviews and the haters who don't even own the game, the overall user score is not to be trusted for at least a week or two after release.

Can anyone really judge a 300+ hour game like Fallout4 in 2 hours of gameplay? It seems plenty of people on Metacritic can... 129 ZERO star user reviews on the first day of release, with that number declining significantly each day thereafter: 129, 83, 35, 20,

Well, I,m afraid there will be 1 million disappointed backers when this game is finally released. The truth is Chris will never have to enough money to finish his game, but he'll have plenty of cash for those perfect 10 review scores.

Need for Speed 2 was the last good NFS game. 'Nuff said.

Agreed! But back then it was still a PC game. I played the 3D accelerated version of N4S2SE and it was so good that I bought one of those expensive Trustmaster racing wheels. I remember the cars handled very well, less arcady... but the series was all downhill from there.

The truth is, the Kinect failed because the Wii simply works better.
Not to mention that hardcore gamers look at it and scoff.

They need 4-6 months to unlock the framerate? Incompetent much?

No, they are afraid poor PC reviews will hurt sales of the console versions, so they are trying to put some distance between them.
Expect EA to release the same crappy PC port in a few months.

Words of wisdom from a longtime PC gamer: If you want to play a console game, buy a console.

Well, I just created a full backup drive image and was all set to upgrade from Windows 7 (I hated Win8 with a passion)...
but after hearing about all of the bugs and the spyware baked into Windows 10 I'm having second thoughts. Maybe I'll just get my free upgrade, save a Win10 drive image, and revert back to Windows 7 until the kinks get worked out.

As a PC/XB1 gamer, I think it's time Call of Duty became a PS4 exclusive.

Crap, I was all set to install my free upgrade to Windows 8.2
but from what I've read, it's buggy and not ready for primetime.
Maybe I should wait for Windows8.3 Windows11.

Yes, those aren't bad phones, and I might consider one of those if not for the OnePlus2.
For $30 more you get a much faster processor, twice the ram, fingerprint sensor, gorilla glass, dual-sims (i.e. dual-line/2 phone #s), and (most important to me) a better camera with optical image stabilization, laser autofocus, and 4K video.

Good luck finding a top tier phone for $329 that doesn't require a 2-year contract.
