Microsoft: Xbox One likely to boot faster than TV from standby mode

The Xbox One is likely to boot up faster than the television it displays on when in standby mode, according to director of product planning Albert Penello. Writing on Reddit (via Videogamer), Penello gave a rundown of the next-generation console's three power states: On, Off, and Standby.

"On is On. Off is Off. Standby allows 'Xbox On' [voice command], quick resume, checking for updates, etc," Penello said.

"This is the mode we'd like to see people in, obviously, so you get back to gaming or watching TV really quick. From standby, it's likely the Xbox will be on before the TV is completely powered up."

Penello did not say how long the Xbox One will take to boot up from the Off setting or provide other specifics regarding the standby mode, like how much power is needed. The Xbox One launches in 13 territories around the world on November 22.

By comparison, the PlayStation 4's suspend/resume mode, which puts the console in a low-power state similar to the Xbox One's standby mode, will not be available at launch. Instead, it will be added after release through a patch.

These are great features, I really like how PS4 and XB1 are doing this. It makes them even more pick and play than previous gen consoles.

I'll be too busy playing my ps4 to let it go idle... xdrones will have their systems constantly going idle with shoveling doritos, slim jims, and mountain dew while getting "exclusive" dlc content in terms of color swap character selections LOL.


you should give your ps4 a break once and a while, you wouldn't want the red line of death now would you?

Don't worry... your xbox one will be too busy overclocking and producing excessive heat in an attempt to just reach 720P. Imagine what upscaled 720P with sub 30 fps dead rising 3 is gonna do to your ex-box.

You mean increasing the operating performance past manufacturer recommendations? Oh yeah I'd call that overclocking... a fact microsoft isn't hiding through Penello stating that the system is being produced with the chip increased 10% beyond factory standards. RROD v2 here we come.
