Will you be gaming wired or wireless with Xbox One?

In other words are you a gamer or a n00b?

If you don't play fighting games or FPS online then you get a pass for being a wireless n00b... though if games are 20 to 30gb downloads, it's going to take much longer on a wireless connection.

How many mods does it take to screw in a light bulb? "the lightbulb is technically not violating the TOS so we're powerless to do anything about it"

Same question applies to the PS4 crowd

Most internet speeds are slower then your average Wifi connection so downloads shouldn't be any slower, unless you have crappy WiFi. As for the the other aspect, yes you really should be wired if possible.

I was hoping we were past this myth, but I guess not. It's essentially like saying that the human eye can't notice the difference between 30fps and 60fps.

Comparing the internet speeds to your WIFI connection speed means nothing. You can run tests to your router, wired and wireless that prove this.

bring up a command prompt and type this:

ping -t (router's IP address, probably 192.168.0.1 or 1962.168.1.1)

So it would probably be

ping -t 192.168.0.1

Do that wired. Now do it wireless. Move the wireless connection away one room at a time, and watch your internet gaming get worse and worse as the packet loss and latency get worse and worse.

WIFI from 1 room away, 5 full bars of connection:
