100% sync is supposed to be achieved on a second playthrough. On you first run just enjoy the game.

I can't enjoy a game I can't 100% the first time through. I don't have time to play all the games I want to as it is; I sure as hell don't have time to play games twice.

While mobile/phone games aren't generally as good as handheld, I think people are becoming perfectly happy to play games that are free or only cost a buck or two until they get home to play 'real' games on their console. The cost differential per game is so extreme and people already shelled out a few hundred for their phone that they're looking to not shell out an equal amount for something to game on when their phone does a bunch of decent games itself.

They just didn't let you control your DVR, which requires me to rely on the traditional DVR menu still.

I'm curious how much it's "let" or "can't". But honestly, if you've tried using Netflix via voice, it's not very useful for selecting/finding something, and I doubt the experience for DVR control would be much better.

There were a lot of disconnects on Xbox One CoD: Ghosts yesterday. I saw two or three and had maybe seen one since November beforehand.

DLC for The Last of Us finally drops and I barely care. Should've been out before next gen.

Overrated? I thought everyone thinks it's terrible. Because it is. Everything that kept me playing GTA IV online nearly every day for close to a year is gone in favor of a system that makes it tough to play the mode you want and has that idiotic free roam with jerks roaming about in tanks.

I did it to test it out and show it off to a few relatives—not intending to leave it in place—and I was instantly in love. Saying "Xbox, watch BBC America" never gets old. The picture is just as fine as if you plugged the HDMI from the cable box into the TV (or to an A/V receiver then onto the TV).

The channel changes a bit slowly, as the voice command gets processed as individual number keys getting pressed (there is a speed setting somewhere in the menus that you'll want to make faster). If I want to go to ABC, 506 on my Verizon, you'll see the 5, then the 0, then the 6 pop up as if you'd pressed buttons. Perhaps a tad slower if the remote was next to you, but if you'd have to stretch to reach it and it's upside down and pointed towards you, totally faster. And certainly faster if you rarely watch a channel and don't know its number on your system offhand. For AMC, which I watch once a week at best and can never remember, its a godsend.

I hadn't had Madden for a few years, so it's always a great leap for me.

I wish it would have a way to turn off auto-record of game clips. Really tired of Madden 25 recording the CPU's great plays against me.

...As I went to go download the map pack, I was unable to buy it because Microsoft charges tax...seriously? i have bought season passes and other things on ps4 and was never charged tax. This is not the only reason why i am upset with the Xbox one.. but its easily made up my mind that i want to sell the console.

This is recent. States are clamping down on tax for out-of-state purchases for places like Amazon and such. It's not like Microsoft makes money by charging you tax. If they collect tax money, it gets turned over to a state. If anything it's a hassle for them because it's just more record-keeping.
