    Thanks Strat. I'll probably go with a XO bundle this weekend. If it were 10 years ago, I'd opt for the PS4 as I was "into" and had much more time for gaming. I've lost several folks on my FL for not being very active on XBLive. I'm not hardcore any longer regarding all the resolution vs. frame rate vs. graphics arguments. The PS4 has the better graphics engine, although I think the XO uses it's hardware somewhat more efficiently in some cases (see the frame rate comparison of the last AC game).

    Thanks again for the info. I'll start adding/re-adding some folks when I get everything set up. Happy Turkey Day to you all. .
    War Eagle!

    The February update is out for the dashboard preview program. I like the transparent tiles, but it feels like the feature is only implemented half way -- so many tiles are still opaque, and not even all of the "system apps" will go transparent (like the Media Player, which is still solid green despite my theme being set to blue). Don't know if I'll use the "Game Hub" at all, since the only features I care about already exist elsewhere -- whether my friends are playing (Friends app) and my achievement progress (Achievement app). Don't have TV, so OneGuide doesn't affect me; and the HD tuner doesn't exist in the US, so streaming to SmartGlass does nothing for me.

    But I have noticed that the double-tap "snap center" seems to come up a lot faster than before, and that's something I use a lot.

    According to the update notes, some tiles won't be transparent due to "usage rights/restrictions for certain images." I would guess this applies mainly to things like Netflix, HBO Go, etc.

    The system apps being green doesn't surprise me. It's like that on the Windows phone, too. Things like Games and Smart Glass stay green instead of changing to my selected background color. However, I'd rather have the system apps be transparent, even if they remain green. I like being able to have a background now on XBO and I'd like to see more of it.

    Speaking of which... does anyone have any invites for the preview program? I know it gets asked a million times.

    Thanks!

    BTW...Harmonix put a survey out with some questions about Rock Band on the next-gen! Not sure how serious it will get but it may require a Super Pickle reunion!

    That would be fun! I'd be interested in another Rock Band (or GH, for that matter) depending on the song list and and whether or not any of the previously purchased DLC would be made available to your account.

    Anyone interested in buying my Xbox One? I'll sell it for $300 + shipping, with the 2 AC games, GTA 5 and Outlast download onto the box. I'll also throw in a copy of Forza Horizon 2.

    Not sure of the shipping cost but it shouldn't be that much.
