    The only minor issue I have with it so far is how long it takes for the guide to open. It's a big improvement over snapping apps in the previous UI, but still a little bit slow for the initial load. Once it's open though, actually navigating to Friends or a Party is so much better than previously. They've really thought about what actions people want to perform, especially in game, and how they can be performed quicker.

    Yeah, didn't think when I posted it. It was one of my first games for the Xbox 360.

    I remember the players looked amazing at the time! :p

    I unfortunately traded in all of my 360 games to lower the price of my Xbox One Bundle...balls.

    What's the size of the update for the new dashboard so that I can find the most suitable time to start downloading it. Thanks

    Think the whole thing took about 25 minutes to dl and install. Then you have to update the controller which is another couple of minutes.

    I've just got my Xbox One back from being repaired. Previously it would launch games, but it would never get past the loading/splash screen, so I sent it off to be repaired. Unfortunately it wasn't an official Microsoft repair because I had changed the HDD in an effort to fix the problem myself.

    Received the console back after MONTHS of waiting, they told me it had been fixed. It has not... Forza Horizon 2 demo works fine, but both Fifa 16 demo and Killer Instinct just black screen. Installing Dead Rising 3 as we speak to test but I don't have high hopes.

    It's almost exactly the same problem as I sent it in to be repaired for, except it freezes at a different place. Anyone else experienced this problem? The only solution I can find is to power cycle the console, or turn off and leave power cable out for 5 minutes. This did not help :(

    On xbox.com you can add them to your downloads then they will appear on the games list on the XB1.

    But you have to have a valid payment method on your account to do so.

    ok cheers :) All i had from my 360 days was Ikaruga and RTpe Dimensions, neither is running at the moment, it gets to "Getting your xbox 360 info" and just sits there. I guess the 8 o clock thing is strict! or they might not work.

    Had an Xbone at launch but sold it 6 months later, Just purchased another one mainly for Tomb Raider and Forza. WTF is with the interface, it's a complete mess.

    Anyone noticed the quicker install times? Tomb Raider installed from disk in about 20mins or so..

    Or is it down to only having a 800mb patch rather than the usual 10gb ?

    This is the first disk I have bought since Watch Dogs but thought it took longer to install

    Downloaded the update. Nice. Looks good.

    First thing, find a party I want to join.

    They've removed the preview for who is in parties...

    How am I supposed to cherry pick my party?!
