    It's too bad you still have to sit through such a big update.

      I honestly expected one bigger than that. I don't mind things like that. Might as well squash as many bugs as possible before I start. In fact, I've come to expect it.

      Sometimes I wonder if newer consoles even ship with the full OS. Notice the other option was 'Turn Off', so there was no way to get out of setup and into a game. Maybe they ship with a setup OOBE and then download the core OS so each machine gets the latest build.

    Still waiting for the article on Initial Games.

    Where are the firstparty exclusives? Surely MS realizes you don't launch a new console - even if iterative - without at least one killer platform exclusive. Smdh.

      I thought Forza 7, Cuphead, PUBG etc were "exclusives", or are those available on PlayStation now?

      In reply to PeteB:

      Cuphead, Forza 7, PUBG. Plus the best experience on ALL of the multi-platform console games coming out this fall on consoles. Call of Duty, AC, Battlefront 2...multi-plat rise and repeat.

      98% of console games are multi-platform. The X is the best experience on a console.

    You should really just say "No" (with a french accent) a single time during the video :)
