Sure, Microsoft’s Xbox One console may have gotten off to a rather bumpy start this past summer, however if the sales numbers Microsoft announced earlier this weekend are any indication, the company is well on its way to minding its relationship with console buyers.
Microsoft says it has plans to expedite the returns of users who received malfunctioning Xbox One consoles on launch day.
It seems users celebrating the Xbox One launch in the far east may be having way too much fun. How do we know that even though we don’t have an Xbox One? As of right now Xbox LIVE, Xbox.com and Xbox support are all down.
So I just recently finished up writing a series of piece about the Xbox One called Player One. After finishing up the coverage a few minutes ago it occurred to me, I haven’t picked out any launch titles. What titles do you guys have your eye on? Are you going digital this time around?
Who wouldn’t want to earn Xbox LIVE achievements for making it through the last season of Portlandia? Considering how many deadpan jokes the show makes in one episode, we’re inclined to think that users deserve them and apparently, so does Microsoft and Netflix. Users who watch the show and other’s on Netflix’s Xbox One applications will earn achievements.
So you’re planning on venturing out into the icy embrace that is November. You’re finally ready to get that new Xbox One by any means necessary. Unlike other publications, we’re not here to remind you to pick up a launch game with the system — though you should for obvious reasons. Nah, we’re here to remind you that it does more than just play games. We can’t convince you? How about a few cheap action movies to get you going? As of today, all Xbox Video Store users can purchase discounted films from the X-Men and Fast & Furious franchises. We thought so.
The fun starts at 11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
If you are buying an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 this holiday season and thought last week’s episode of South Park couldn’t make you feel any more ashamed, it’s our unfortunate duty to inform you, that you certainly can and that tonight’s episode of the show proves it.
