Unboxing Xbox One

Although we are still a few months away from the official release of Xbox One, I wanted to do a quick  unboxing to show you what you can expect when you open your Xbox One.

Pre-Order your Xbox One:

Amazon

Microsoft Store

    Since I will never use the Kinect for voice, can I talk to the Kinect (in game) via the new included headset?

    Like

    • roozbeh

      voice commands or voice chat?

    • Death Dealer

      Probably not as it is not like that on the 360 either, but maybe.

      The headset is for chat only. You will still need the Kinect for any voice commands as it uses higher quality microphones for the voice recognition.

        Ya I know but if I’m required in a game to yell out stuff to play it it won’t fly for me… my family is usually sleeping when I’m playing. If they could get it so that the mic also works with the Kinect on voice commands I might be more apt to actually use the Kinect. Right now only the kids play it and barely at that… for me, it’s turned off 99.5% of the time.

        Supposedly Kinect 2 has better audio filtering, so maybe you can just speak, not yell.

        Either way I try not to make much noise… I wear headphones most times. It would be nice if the headset/phones could talk to and interact with the Kinect. I’m on the fence about getting a One anyhow but hoping in the end the developers take into consideration that not everyone can yell or talk into their Kinect while playing, so it doesn’t become a required event in games.

        BTW isn’t this sup’d to be a better mic and the reason we can’t use the 360 one for the One?

        For a long time with the 360, you couldn’t buy a replacement power supply through “official channels” with rumors that MS had decided that the only time you’d need a replacement power supply was if you stole the 360 and didn’t get the power supply. I don’t know if that was just rumor or ever confirmed, but it was an issue.

        As I stated, I had some minor damage to my power supply, plus I used to travel with my 360 a lot, so I didn’t want to have to unplug/fish cables and was looking to get a second to make things easier. I couldn’t do that for a long time… Looks like they thankfully have come around to offering replacements.

    Absolutly love that they changed their minds and are including the headset. Now let me disconnect and throw away the Kinect. Microsoft is making such great improvements, if they give people the option to disconnect Kinect, they would see their Xbox sales easily double. With all the NSA scares going on it amazes me Microsoft has not given the option to disconnect Kinect, to please and comfort the majority of people who refuse to buy an XboxOne because of that one issue.

      I dont think they need to let people “throw” away the kinect.. I think they can still sell Kinect with the system.. But if they announced that the Kinect does not have to be connected to the xbox in order for the xbox one to work.. that would make a big difference.. That I believe would go a long way.. Specially with the tournament scene where they wont have to have the kinect connected to a bunch of Xbox Ones… and it would put people at ease with the whole NSA thing..

        He’s right. Bluetooth is lower power, and therefore requires a smaller battery. WiFi is much higher bandwidth and more dependable signal, but needs more juice. Add in the additional rumble features, which are stronger on Xbox in general, and you need a bigger battery for X1. Nothing better or worse, simply different needs for different devices.

      Anything where heat is an issue, like a console, the power supply is both bulky, blocking airflow, and a huge generator of heat. Put your hand on a 100w lightbulb that’s been on for a few minutes. The lowest power Xbox while playing a game is about half again that.
