    I swear I've seen first gen Atom-powered netbooks running their OS with less lag than the Xbox One. You'd think it should be able to handle more than this.

    After the update a couple years ago it was running a whole lot better, but then it suddenly reverted to its previous slugginess? I don't know what happened, but I hope the upcoming redesign can fix things once and for all. (unrealistic expectation)

    It's constantly polling the XBL servers, which is why you lose your pins when XBL goes down, etc.

    You'd think such an issue could be easily fixed by saving at least a few things locally.

    You'd think. I like the ability to log into another XBO and have all my stuff there, but surely it should be saved locally and in the cloud.

    Just had my 2nd X1X fail since scorpio launch.

    Sony and Microsoft really need to sort their shit for next gen.
    That's 2 pros and 2 x1x I've had completely random hardware failures.

    Preparing to be a miserable bastard for the next 2 weeks while it's away.

    Oof, that's some bad luck!

    I don't say that to try and minimise your complaints, btw - I've had issues with both my base PS4 and One X myself. But having two of each fail is pretty nuts.

    Also, no proof of anything. My launch X is still going strong, therefore MS did a great job on reliability.

    Ooh, I've just discovered that Morrowind is available on BC - that's my weekend sorted!

    @TechnoHippy I gave it a try, it doesn't run as well as I hoped, but it's generally fine.

    Mostly, the issue is that the PC version today will run on a toaster, plus it can be modded. I find it hard to imagine going back to the Xbox version.

    Plays well enough on the X. Looks a little better than I expected tbh.

    It runs fine, but it does feel quite clunky to play compared to the more recent games. It's still a lovely world to explore.

    Was there an in-game map? Or is my memory deceiving me?

    Thanks - I hadn't tabbed along from there.

    The music takes me right back into it :-)

    Has anyone used the Razer Nari Ultimate with the Xbox? Thoughts?

    Anyone having issues streaming films?

    I rented one on fri and haven't been able to play it on fri or sat night. Keeps saying i need to be online, despite the fact i am and have full speed etc on testing it. Trailers play ok. Full shutdown etc has not sorted it.

    Downdetector says they have had issues each night though, so it could just be that.

    I've not had issues before. Occasionally with Amazon and Netflix I've had to do a hard reboot, or a router reboot.

    I'll try a router reboot tonight if it's still acting up.

    Everything else is fine though. It's really odd!

    I've had similar issues playing Destiny 2 this afternoon, keeps saying I need to be online to play and then booting me, rather odd.

    Canít sign into my profile. The loading icon just keeps spinning around in circles and then times out. Tested my internet connection and all is fine. At one point it signed me in and I was able to load up a game. One minute in and the game stopped, the Xbox signed me out, tried to sign in again and the Xbox said it couldnít sync save data.

    Turned off + restarted the Xbox multiple times but the same problem. It now signs into one profile but not another.

    Is this standard for Xbox? Iíve noticed bugs like this over the last week.

    Any way to fix this?

    It looks like our internet is acting up (in Spain and our local provider is a bit pants).

    Question though, if I have games downloaded on my hard drive Iím not able to sign in at all to play them if the connection goes?

    With Game pass you need to be connected I believe.

    I think Game Pass lets you play offline too, up to 30 days before it asks for online verification.

    My g/f was playing for the last hour (GamePass game) but then every 10 mins the Xbox would tell her the controller is not authorised, not logged in and would ask you for the password (mid play).

    Does this sound like our crappy internet is interfering here?
