Best trolling EVER. I wonder how many people changed their passwords right away after the announcement (not that it's a bad idea)

While I do not care for Smash Bros, glad you and your own are ok!

Agree on the base topic, though. Plenty of times losing myself in a good game has helped me forget any chaos going on outside of it...at least for a few hours. Let's say my Far Cry 4 time has left me smiling quite a bit this week...

Also, BUY FAR CRY 4!!

I suppose... In the context of this game, being able to play within an hour of initial download is reasonable, though. If this was Steam, even though that maxes my connection, I'd still have to wait longer to play no matter what.

I'd be curious what kind of speed someone with same/faster internet gets for comparison. I mean, is it capped in the 2mb/s range for whatever reason, or is it all over the place?

Holy crap that's awesome, been wanting to try this one out. The last secondness of this all is interesting, which makes me lean towards what EvilAsh is saying. Throwing it out there for analytics. Whoever is fortunate enough to see it in time, lucks out. Plenty of kiddies starting Thanksgiving school vacation today.

Just for shits n giggles, I timed my DL: Started at 5:37AM; 'ready to play' (22%) at 6:32. 22% is 5.9GB; so ~1.8 MB/s, or roughly 1/2 my output. Shitty since I'd prefer it max out my bandwidth, but by no means abysmal. On par with PS4 imo, though I'd have to test it.

For reference, I have 30/10 Comcast for internet, and the X1 is hardwired.

In Topic: Sony Unfazed by Xbox One Holiday Price Cut

Haven't they always had holiday bundles, though?
Yeah, probably. 2 newer games that still command good retail prices, though? All I got was a Spiderman Blu Ray when I bought my PS3. But either way, if they were so sure it was gonna blow X1 out of the water over the holidays, why even bother this time around? Because they love gamers? Clearly, they are just a *tad* fazed that MSs cheap bundles are going to cannibalize PS4 sales, hence the response.
