So, I never posted here before, but is it okay to ask a technical question? I just got an X Box One, but the HDMI cable doesn't seem to work with the tv. Any advice on this?

If this isn't appropriate to ask here then nevermind.

Do you have it plugged into the wrong port? It needs to be in the HDMI Out port, you may have put it in the HDMI In port.

With no means to attack or mock or anything - is there any Xbox One games to be released in the future that people in this thread are really looking forward to?

"Do you have it plugged into the wrong port? It needs to be in the HDMI Out port, you may have put it in the HDMI In port. "

Its in the port that says "HDMI out to tv". The tv I have is a Samsung. Its not a large tv and only has two HDMI ports. One is marked "stb", another is marked "dvi". Should it work with this setup? Is there an adapter that can be used?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it should go in the DVI HDMI port. If that doesn't work, try the other one.

[up][up]I don't think there is. Might need to wait until E3 to hear about anything for later this year since I can't think of any notable games coming out on the console later this year. Most of them were announced last year and slated for around this time.

[up] I tried using it in the DVI port. It said there is no source in that port. I also tried using the cable in the STB port. It said there is no signal and didn't display any picture except that message. It seems like this tv is not compatible with Xbox one.

That's it, unless there is an adapter cable I can use to get it to work.

I just bought myself an Xbox One X to replace my Xbox One.

I'm hoping for much better loading times for Ghost Recon: W Ildlands.

They don't seem as bad but I wonder if I'm projecting.

They're still pretty long.

Do you have a 4K TV for the 4K update to it?

Necro time.

Microsoft Studios is officially changing its name to Xbox Game Studios.

Anyone have any ideas what the renaming is all about?

Apparently they're also bringing Xbox Live to the Nintendo Switch somehow; might be related.

Microsoft had a Super Bowl commercial regarding their Adaptive Controller:

The adaptive tech is actually a really good idea. Give people who couldn’t normally play games access to them.

Making Xbox less a console and more a service? Is that the goal of the Live expansion, to make Xbox Live more like Steam? Given that the Steam Box is set to debut the same time as Dead Space 4 (namely never) that would be an interesting way to expand their business.

Makes me wonder if (or when) Nintendo and Sony will Follow the Leader on this.

If they do make it a service a la Steam, one can only hope they don't get drunk on it like Valve did (or still are). Incidentally, I don't even know anything about a "Steam Box".

[up]There were pictures a few years ago of a dedicated console designed to run Steam. Never went anywhere IIRC.

The Steam console idea sounds familiar, but I forgot all about it. Was any development actually made on it at all, or were those just conceptual images?
