Q: What happens day one when I buy the system? I bring it home, plug it into my TV and outlet then what? I realize there is going to be a setup for my TV, my language, etc. Can I just bring my profile over on a flash drive? Do I have to recover my profile over Xbox Live?

MARC WHITTEN, CHIEF XBOX ONE PLATFORM ARCHITECT: There is a quick setup to get your system connected and up-to-date. After that, getting your profile is as simple as entering your account’s email address and password.


Q: Will I be able to get pre-order bonuses and special edition versions on digitally downloaded games?

WHITTEN: Yes! You’ll see more details here in the future.


Q: Will Xbox One have any TV DVR functionality? Or is the DVR just for games?

WHITTEN: It’s easy to use your current DVR with Xbox One. Our focus is on making the TV experience great – with favorite channels, voice control (including play, pause, fast forward and rewind with your DVR) and more. This is an area where you’ll see us drive more innovation over the years to come.


Q: Will a top-of-the-TV mounting clip be sold for Kinect?

WHITTEN: We recommend locating Kinect in the middle of your television, either above or below the screen on a secure surface. We anticipate there will be some third party mounting offerings in the future.


Q: Will the Kinect sync to your voice? Let's say your friends want to mess with you by saying" Xbox Off." Will we be able to make it only respond to our voice?

WHITTEN: We are focused on ensuring that we have great voice support which includes understanding which person is speaking in the room. Additionally, for actions that are potentially destructive, we have a confirmation dialog which will be the case for “Xbox Off.”

So digital downloads will be able to get pre-order bonuses and Xbox One will be able to control DVRs. Those are the big points I see here, although most of what's here is nice.

Good to hear confirmation about pre-order bonuses. It woul be cool if they added some other small incentives to purchasing direct from Live, too. In-game content or otherwise, even bonuses for other games from the same publisher. That would get a lot more gamers to get in the mindset of going online for pretty much everything, and they'd be able to both sell more content to gamers and get them used to an all-digital future.

Yeah. This is the way they should have done the digital transition in the first place; they needed to make going digital more appealing than physical games. Now with the advantages of instant switching, having the library on any Xbox One, and the supposed return of family sharing, and the eliminating of disadvantages such as no pre-order bonuses, more people will go digital.

Q: How awesome is Xbox One?

WHITTEN: SO awesome, everyone should buy One.

Q: Does it come with a controller?

WHITTEN: Sure does, we at Xbox believe in over delivering on value.

Q: Is that the guy who hands me the sack of money? *points*

WHITTEN: Yep. Buy your kids something nice, on us.

Pretty much. I proposed a while ago that they should actually reduce the price of digital downloaded games to curb the used market. I can think of no bigger incentive to get gamers to go online for their games.

I see. In that case, can I use Kinect to control disc-based movies? Also, I've applied for you to get VIP status on these boards.
