Xbox One: Read the OP

This is the Xbox One Thread. It is still pretty empty. I'm working on it.

We got some new rules for this thread, so read up.

The Rules Which You Better Read
  • This is not a thread to defend your favorite hardware maker, nor is it one to shit over other hardware makers. This forum tends to be better about fan-silliness, but a lot of you tend to get all hot and bothered if anyone besmirches the House of Plumber. Appropriate and sincere comparisons are fine, but we don't need any dramatics. This includes tired memes like "lolsony" and the dreaded "M$".
  • The topic of DRM and Used Games are officially banned from this thread. We'll have a separate thread to discuss these issues soon-ish.
  • The above rule does not mean that this is the Xbox One Fanclub Treehouse. You can criticize shit like the cost or how ugly it looks; the DRM issue just has a habit of going well beyond the topic of the Xbox One.
  • This thread is not intended to be permanent. The most likely situation is that we'll give you the holiday season to enjoy the new toy Santa got you, and then this thread gets shut down. Exceptions have been made for hardware that's been struggling and cannot maintain a lot of active threads on specific games. The XBox One is likely not going to have that problem, so don't get attached to this thread.
  • As an addendum to the above, there is no guaranteed lifespan to this thread, and how long it lasts is inversely influenced by how bad behavior gets. We will not hesitate to take this thread away if people cannot act like adults.
  • Please cut down on the "witty" image macros. Chances are someone else has posted it (probably multiple people) and it doesn't add much to the discussion.
  • Report bad behavior. I shouldn't have to say this, but I see people trying to handle shit on their own when a report would have sufficed. Let us deal with it.
  • These rules are to be posted in every subsequent thread.
  • Don't use general insults against groups to describe those who disagree with you as a method to get around the edict. People who like the One are not shills or idiots, and people who are detractors are not virginal neckbeards. And general use of these terms will be treated as an edict infraction.

And yes, calling it the "Xbone" still makes you a total goober.

    Does the ban on DRM discussion include a ban on discussion of the PR failures surrounding that DRM?

    MOUNTAIN DEW AND DORITOS are teaming up with Xbox to create an unprecedented experience

    Um.

    I do not think they know what unprecedented is.

    Uh, you're not even allowed to buy video games unless you're unkempt, poorly dressed, and out of shape.

    That's the biggest reason the Xbone requires the Kinect.

    I'm going to go with yes because I don't want to encourage it.

    Actually, yes. Not me personally, but one of the NCO's in my unit has pretty much replaced his water intake with the stuff. I'm not even exaggerating about that.

    Love it. Can't drink it often anymore because of high blood sugar.

    These things may be related, you never know.

    I like the "Microsoft is neither a sponsor of this promotion nor has any responsibilities regarding its conduct or administration" at the bottom.

    But then how did they get the logo and the box and stuff? I don't understand what is happening. First xbox button colors and sixaxis palindromes, now this. Have mercy on me universe, it's only a thursday.

    I was going to congratulate Rorus for his hilarious parody.

    But it was actually real.

    I have an incredible sweet tooth. Like, I've been known to down cream-soda floats. That is basically pure sugar.

    Even I can't do a case of Mountain Dew. In isolation, a single can isn't too bad. but man, if you drink a lot of mountain dew for a few days, it's like you can actually feel the diabetes.

    When I was in college I used to drink energy drinks to wake myself up in the morning. If I couldn't get one on the way to campus, I'd get a mountain dew instead from a vending machine.

    EDIT: That said, the alternate flavors of mountain dew are a lot less sweet and some of them are pretty good.

    If you are drinking soda, then you really have no right to be calling out Mountain Dew for excess sugar.

    Not really. Mountain Dew actually has a lot more sugar than regular sodas. It's one of the most sugary drinks available. It's not quite Jolt, but it still has twice as much sugar as, say, a can of Coca-cola.

    So... It's possible that the discussions we had about the Kinect seeing that you had doritos and a dew in hand might not be farfetched.

    I mean, that WOULD be an unprecedented experience.

    "Godmode unlocked as long as you continue to chug that mountain dew."

    What is this I don't even.

    46 grams of sugar in a can of Mountain Dew.

    39 grams of sugar in a can of Coke.

    It's more, yeah. But not really noticeably.

    A 20oz Dew has 12g more sugar than a 20 oz coke, which is roughly 25% more sugar.

    In my case I don't :D

    I'm all about the unsweetened Iced Tea and water. I used to drink soda all the time though years ago and even then Mountain Dew was way too sweet for me. But overall you are correct, commenting on a soda having excess sugar is pretty silly.

    I'm sure there will be achievements that are tie-ins to cross-brand promotions on the Xbox One, now that they're taking achievements beyond simply playing games.

    Regardless, 25% isn't an insignificant number.

    Erm, mind if I talk about the Xbox One?

    Do we have any confirmed list of games for launch yet?

    We know for sure:
    Ryse
    Killer Instinct

    I'm assuming based on the day one promotion:
    Forza 5
    Dead Rising 3
    Kinect Sports 3

    We know because they'll launch before the console:
    Battlefield 4
    Call of Duty Ghosts

    Are there any other confirmations yet?

    Depends really, the taste of either will trigger insulin secretion but the sugar itself I believe triggers more once it actually hits the bloodstream, the aspartame won't but may have other side effects.

    I've heard Stevia is probably better but I don't know much about it personally.
