Background music shouldn't be too far off after November :)

The controller that came with my console got right stick drift. Guess now I can use that as my excuse for missing  :walshy:

 

Anyway, does anyone know if Microsoft fixed the issue with the new Xbone controllers (the one's with the 3.5mm headset port)? Since if it has, I may just buy a new one (probably either one of the Halo 5 controllers, the Elite one, or the Lunar one) instead of trying to replace the analog modules on my old one, since I don't have a headset adapter.

So is getting into the preview program pretty much guaranteed if someone in it invites you? Or is it still chance/need based?

 

I hear mixed answers so I figured I'd ask.

I got invited by someone who I had only been a friend on xbl for a few days, and it took almost a month for me to finally get accepted.

 

When I invited someone who was my friend for probably 5 years on xbl, they got the invite in a week.

 

I believe it is still random, with maybe a longer/shorter wait time for friends you haven't/have known for a certain period of time. I also remember seeing an article that Microsoft is cutting down on the number of new preview members because the number is so large. I'll find the link if possible.

 

Edit: found it.

I just want them to support USB mic/audio. That 7.1 USB plug in that comes with the Hyperx Cloud 2's is so cost effective compared to any surround sound setup that can be used for an xbox

Yes

 

I got my update late last night also. Snap is much more responsive

 

Right? I haven't tested it our while playing a game yet, but using it in Home was instant. And sending invites/messages is faster than ever, including the 360. The only thing that I still don't like is that they don't give us the option to bring up Snap by pressing the Xbox button once and have Home be the double-tap.

I tested it for a few minutes before I left this morning, but it seems it will be just as fast while in the middle of a game too. The Oneguide for TV is a lot better too. I agree with the Xbox button. My second tap won't register sometimes and I hate when it takes me back to the home screen instead of snapping. Now I typically use Kinect for snap to avoid that problem.

Do the notifications look the same for people coming online/inviting you?

They lowered where the notification comes in. I believe it is almost at the very bottom of the screen now. It also seems smoother imo. Its basically the same though, "hold Xbox button or say Xbox open profile"

To add to this, the animation is also quicker now, almost half the time. And the notifications look better as well.
