    So a 7gb demo is limited to 2 plays by a single gamertag? Really MS!?

    • Lt Phoenix KIA

      Its not 7GB. When I went to uninstall it, it was only around 1.35GB from memory. Demo’s that expire after a number of plays is not unusual. Been done many moons ago. Remember its a demonstration of the game and a demonstration (demo) can be as big or as little as the developer wants it to be. I only used 1 play through before uninstalling it as that was enough for me to decide that I liked it and interested in picking it up at some point. I still cant resist spending money on my 360 even after getting the Xbone.

        It’s 7.1gb

          Sorry my mistake, had another demo I uninstalled at same time which was 1.35GB which I mistook for the dead rising one. I can see the size being an issue for those on capped Broadband packages, I guess its a choice you need to make. Download the demo or just jump in and buy the game.

      40 minutes isn’t enough for you for a demonstration of what the game details?

      You’re either going to hate it and that won’t take 20 minutes to decide or you’re going to like it and pick up the full retail game as soon as you can.

    great show guys

    There’s more to fix than just the party chat IMO.
    The UI isn’t entirely logical ATM either, in the Store at least. There’s no demo section and browsing it requires Bing use to find everything you’re looking for if you want something specific that isn’t there.
    What’s also kind of annoying is browsing your apps and games. They’re bundled together and in the horizontal fashion like on the Xbox 360 where it was an absolute nightmare to go through if you had like 300 games on there. At least now there are 2 rows instead of one for the games, but it should be like 3 or maybe even 4 (on the Xbox 360 too BTW) and they should separate games from apps.
    The download queue also needs some fixing as it is only accessible from that app and isn’t very logical as to what downloads in which order. If one’s connection drops it somehow doesn’t continue with what was downloading either, but downloads the next item once the connection reestablishes (crappy DSL line e.g.).
    Then there’s the storage, which we should be able to manage, but I’ll leave that open until the external storage is implemented, which should be soon.

      the most egregious bug for me is the fact that there is a system wide problem with all streaming video, it varies a bit per app, but they all pause/stutter/drop frames constantly. Its not smooth. Its being reported all over the xbox one support forums. I really hope this gets fixed asap, with Xbox Video not currently supporting downloading of anything, its totally useless as the broken streaming is the only option. I still use my 360 for everything, and i have an xbox one…

    Major, is there a reason why shoot many robots does not load up? I just downloaded it for free and get a splash screen informing me of the icon that means its accessing the hard drive and then the screen goes black and stays black. The Xbox has not crashed because I can still access the guide button and return to dashboard. Just deleted it and gonna try re-downloading it again. If it doesn’t work then no real biggy as it was free and got hundreds of games still to play.
