But alas, there's been plenty more to chew over since then, hence the below, belated list of follow-up thoughts.... read more

Xbox One: 11 more things you need to know

7. It's got a pretty sweet boot sequence

It won't change your life, but it's pretty slick. Here's a GIF captured from one of Microsoft's recent videos.


I thought that was a fan made interpretation of the boot up sequence.
I must have be wrong though.

I hate that a friend logging in noise is the same as an achievement. Nothing is more disappointing than hearing you've got an achievement and then seeing it's a so-called 'friend'. Grrr. I hate you, 'friend'.

"Hot tasty facts" unlike the hot tasty bacon I will have to buy a bacon grill for. Are you openly trying to mock me? :(

You never know, SilentDark - maybe if you keep forcing ground pigmeat through the grill it'll spit out a bacon sarnie.

Wait, is this confirmed? Where have you even heard the new "friend logging in noise?" Or are you speaking about the 360?

Considering 60% of people use their 360 for watching media apps more then they do for gaming (myself included) guess that's a lot of people who don't like games....or alternatively that's a lot of people who buy an ENTERTAINMENT console for a range of purposes.
