Official Xbox One Media Remote (Xbox One)

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels better than I expected, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As someone has written before me, the remote feels great in hand - robust, rubber-like (soft-touch) finish, good shape, good size. To be honest it feels a lot better than I thought it would. The shape of the back of the remote may seem strange but it is practical in may ways: 1) It feels great in palm. 2) It is easier to pick up from table. Although, due to the shape it works a little like a cradle.

Neat feature is the backlight based on position - it automatically turns on when you move the remote or press a button.

I am only waiting for Microsoft to fix the Menu button on the remote not bringing up disc menu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits great, looks great, feels great, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't buy any unofficial mounts - they're garbage, really. This one looks and feels like it belonged to the Xbox One in the first place - the glossy finish, front panel... everything fits just great. You may be a little worried while setting the angle of the back support because it makes really unconfortable sounds (like it was going to break) but I guess it is OK.

The camera privacy cover is also included in the box (it made my girlfriend bappy because she doesn't like the camera while the Xbox One is off), making it respond to voice but not seeing anything. Moreover, the cover is made of soft plastic (rubber-like), so it will not scratch the sensor.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little shallow but still great fun!, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ryse: Son of Rome is not the brightest nor the most original game of its genre. But so far it is the best-looking game on consoles, it has a great atmosphere and sense of detail. It is just a hack and slash game, with quite simple contols, very short, shallow and mostly cliched story with a couple of great ideas and one or two strong moments.

Single player: At first I couldn't get into the game. The controls are a little different than what we are used to, the combat is not as fluid as in other games (a little similar to AC, but by far not as good as in Arkham games) but after an hour or two I started to enjoy the story mode, especially when different locations appeared (the British exterior or the black forest are really, really nice and full of atmosphere).

Multiplayer: I didn't want to play the multiplayer but I tried and found myself cought in it for hours! I really like the coop style, I find it better than the traditional many-players compats. Especially I like the fact you are fighting against the NPCs, which makes it easier, more fluid and from my point of view also more fun.

All in all, I didn't expect too much from Ryse but it pleasantly surprised me. It is fun, great to look at and the multiplayer is really addictive. For me it is somewhere between 6-7/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best!, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already own the 12-disc DVD edition so the Blu-ray one was just a technological update for me. The Blu-ray edition has way better-looking packaging (not so intriguing but of higher quality and simply more beautiful). Everything in the box is absolutely the same as in the DVD edition - the booklets, Appendecies, extra content...

Only the movies are of course remastered in 1080p, looking fantastic! The bosuses remained the same, are on DVDs. There are three extra DVD discs that weren't included with the extended DVD edition (they are another three documentaries "behind the scenes" which were included in other, lesser editions of the movies, so it is nice to see them here).

The extended Blu-ray edition is a must-have for any LOTR fan. It is just fenomenal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different packaging, but great quality, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 4-movie collection of Pirates came in a different packaging (instead of 5-disc single box it came i a carton box, each movie separately) which is OK by the way because if they release Pirates no. 5, you can just place it next to the 4 movies you already have instead of placing the single extra movie next to a big single-box collection. And the quality of the cases is very good (ELITE cases) - see my photos. A little disappointing is the fact that each disc looks different (not the cases or inlays, but the discs themselves).

The quality of the movies is great - 1080p is really sharp. Naturally the newer the movie is, the better the quality (the Curse of the Black Pearl looks great in 1080p but On Stranger Tides looks even sharper, with less picture noise. All in all - great quality, great bonuses and great extra disc with bloopers and a documentary.

For the low price the 4-disc Pirates collection is a very good deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, beautiful car adventure, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even though being a Forza fan, Forza 5 surprised me, pleasantly! The game may not offer as many tracks or cars (I believe it will get better in the next release), but offers beautiful, detailed visuals, plays better thanks to the possibility to choose whatever event/series I want to drive in (so the game progress is not lined-up by the developer) and the most game-changing feature ever - the Drivatars - even when driving offline, the races feel like online, as if you were (almost) competing against real people.

Unlike its predecessor Xbox 360, this Play and Charge Kit offers Li-Ion battery (AT LAST), long-enough, thin and compact Micro-USB charging cable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best controller got better! Really!, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a long-time fan and user of Xbox 360, I have fallen in love with its controller. I thought it is the best controller around, period.

Until I bought the Xbox One. The new controller for Xbox One is even more ergonomic and convenient in hand. Every inch of the controller got better - from the shape, more responsive sticks, dramatically better triggers to beautiful Xbox One logo. :-)

The first day or two I needed to get used to it, now it is hard to take the Xbox 360 controller - it is just worse. :-)

In the box you will find the controller, battery pack, charging cable (micro-USB with LED indication) and some Xbox Live Gold 2-day trial. The battery pack is Li-Ion (AT LAST!), incorporated into the controller body, cable is very long, thin. Improvements all around...

5.0 out of 5 stars Next-gen has really come!, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Xbox One is really a next-gen entertainment and gaming experience, really able to provide all-in-one home/living room hub for fun.

As an owner of former Xbox 360, I was really able to appreciate the leap the Xbox One hase gained in comparison with its predecessor. The Kinect 2.0 is the backbone of the whole experience - without it it would just be another, only more powerful box. Thanks to Kinect, the control by voice and gestures is intuitive and very convenient. Especially I like "Xbox On" command and face recognition.

What I also really like about the Xbox One is the real multitasking - I can easily and also very quickly switch between applications and games, all of them still running! If I am playing a game and suddently need to look something up on the internet, I just switch apps or snap Internet Explorer, being able to return to gameplay anytime, just where I stopped (the game is paused, not turned off).
