    hi i updated my dashboard but i dont have my 360 games , wtf?

    • Keshav Bhat

      Those will be available starting at 12:01PM PT today

      • XtremeK1ll3r

        ok thanks

      • Drank Bleach

        Hey Keshav, you said that the backwards compatibility will allow xbox one users play with the 360 users on the 360 servers, so what would happen when they shut down the servers?

        • Keshav Bhat

          You can no longer play backwards compatible games online, I believe.

          • epicpwn117

            This is not true all games that have servers up are able to be played online

          • Keshav Bhat

            What? In order for the game servers to be working, you have to Xbox 360 servers working too. So in the future, if they decide to off Xbox 360 servers, you cannot play. You have to connect first to Xbox Live.

          • epicpwn117

            Sorry didn’t know that’s what you were saying I thought u said that the servers don’t work as of right now but they will work till they are turned off

          • NotShitAtCOD

            I was reading an article on it actually, and I believe it said to play with 360 players you just have to download a 360 guide on the xbone.

          • NotShitAtCOD

            Just read your other comment. Never mind thought you were saying now.

  • KJ

    go to home > press start > settings > system > update

    to get the update.

    • w

      There is no update feature under System for me. I guess it’s already updated for me? I’m in the preview program..

  • XboxISdead

    Yea we will be hearing how horrible this is in a couple hours hahahaha xbox is trying everything to keep up now that COD is gone. Xbox is having trouble running BO3 and you dont think Treyarch knew the game would run way better on PS4? It was made for the PS4 the system is just so much better. Xbox is dead now just RIP in thr corner with your new DB

    • KJ

      k.

    • ive had this in the preview program for over a month and half. No one has complaints babyboy. Xbox will have more skill while nothing but scrubs and children migrated to the ps4. The fact you made a discus name to bash a console is quite funny. Wear your virginity on your sleeve much??

      • Kobrah

        People with your toxic attitude can stay on Xbox

        • David Bam

          no please let them get to playstation. oh well i’m still hoping one day the war will be over.

          • Kobrah

            Nah, you can keep him. Or come join the light side yourself? 😉

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The war is over, actually. There wasn’t even a war to begin with.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        That’s a bit ironic, don’t you think?

    • Drank Bleach

      They’re not doing this because they lost the cod contract, the Xbox one reveal was a disaster and they’re trying to make that up and gain more customers, I actually applaud them.

      • Koolz

        IMO “disaster” is a bit strong, but it definitely wasn’t on par with PS4.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          It was a disaster. Esteban said so.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I’ll never applaud a corporation.

    • Koolz

      You guys are actually falling for this troll? It’s a guest account with a username “XboxIsDead”.

      Xbox has no trouble running the game btw. I’ve played 30 hours total so far and no frame rate issues.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Ironic enough, the UI is obviously inspired by XMB if not slightly.

  • Kobrah

    There you go everyone who was complaining about the PS update article. Happy now?

    • KK5

      THIS IS NOT OKAY! Everything should be PlayStation based! 😉

      • Kobrah

        Well… It is the superior console after all… lol

        • KK5

          “I am high and mighty because of the console I chose to buy, BOW DOWN TO ME, XBOX PEASANTS!”

          • Celest1ne

            PC MASTER RACE lol. That is until there’s a shitty port. These wars are stupid. It’s a fucking system, they all have pros and cons. Just fucking pick which one you want.

          • KK5

            Amen, Amen, Ameeeeeen

          • mjfame

            buy both

    • LovekillerX

      Keshav is Playstation fanboy!!111!

      Now that backwards compatibility feature comes people can play Black Ops 1 on Xbox One. I wish I could do that too on PS4. 🙁

      • GR3Y_B1RD

        yep, i thought exactly the same…hopefully we PS guys will get some like the Elite Controller and Playstation Now soon

        • YoungMurf

          I would actually use Playstation Now if they added the older CoD titles, but in saying that I don’t think they will be added.

        • Well I highly doubt any of that is going to happen. First of all, Sony already said awhile ago that they do not plan on bringing backwards compatibility to PS4. This might change, but that is highly unlikely. Now second of all, Sony making some “elite” like controller would make it seem like they’re copying Microsoft. There is already the Scuf 4PS and it’s about the same price as an Elite controller. Just get that if you want a controller with paddles.

          • EJ

            Seeing that scuff is over hyped crap, and anyone using one seriously needs a cruch to play a game, I’ll pass

          • Scuf is actually pretty good. I would highly recommend getting one of you have the money for it.

          • Kobrah

            They seem particularly useful now that you have to hold x to boost jump, would be so much easier to jump shot

        • Logic Chief

          PlayStation now is not worth it costs way to much money for same thing we get free stop being money whores sony. If any company would you would think microsoft would be but damn they changed

      • One Russian’s Revenge

        “I wish I had a PS4, period.”

        • Imventing

          not gonna lie, i love xbox. but i just want a ps4 just to play sport games on.

          • One Russian’s Revenge

            “I say it because I’m on last gen.”

        • NotShitAtCOD

          Why?

          • One Russian’s Revenge

            “I’m on last gen sadly.”

          • TheNuGawd

            Ok makes sense

      • fires

        Just play them on last gen… Not all titles are working, and half the ones that do perform really shitty. PSNow is also just input laggy aswell. You’re better off keeping the last gen consoles plugged in.

      • Kobrah

        Meh, doesn’t bother me, if I want to play PS3 games I just me PS3. I use the Dualshock 4 controller on it if sometimes too

      • RogueMURICAN

        Nope, as of right now no COD games are backwards compatible.

    • ItzSikh

      EHEEHHEE IT WAS ME EHEHEHE

    • NotShitAtCOD

      So you just love PlayStation don’t you.

      • Kobrah

        I’m just tired of everyone bitching all the time

  • lunator100hd .

    Why bo1? mw2/3 or even bo2 are more famous.

    • David Bam

      because it was most requested.

      • Fuzzy Fart Face

        Classic Zombie maps. Nuff said.

    • MichiganerE

      But BO1 sold more than MW2.

      • lunator100hd .

        Yeah because mw2 made cod as a franchise so famous and every cod after it sold mad amount of copyies.

        • MichiganerE

          No, earlier titles in the series made CoD an official franchise.

        • Aidan

          CoD became a franchise way before MW2

    • NotShitAtCOD

      They’re just getting stuff sorted out

    • SuperImpact

      More famous? Only reason why people talk about BO2 more is because it’s newer. MW3 lol gtfo BO1 has more players online if you go check right now. MW3 and BO2 only had 1 million players on release date. Black Ops 1 for a couple of days had 3 million people online around March 2011 iirc. But the game was always at a million for many months. Most CODs only on the first 2-3 days.

  • Thank god.
    I can’t get on my xbox currently, but i hope it’s closer to the 360. The current dash board is a fucking shame.

    • One Russian’s Revenge

      “I hope it’ll pass your expectations.”

    • Ben

      It’s a little bit closer in terms of performance, but still not the same as it was on 360. But the new layout is good, I quite like the new Guide panel, it really makes a difference.

      I’m pretty sure they will tweak this in the near future, it is really far from complete in this state.

      • SPETSNAZ!

        I like the front page on the old UI better, but they did improve the gooing in and out of tiles which I like

  • One Russian’s Revenge

    “Good on ya Xbox people, that sounds like a great update, man I really wish I had a current gen console.”

  • MichiganerE

    All these fanboys… smh…

    • Ben

      They are funny, at least…

    • ItzSikh

      this is the point where people like me who have both consoles just sit and eat popcorn and watch the fanboys fight

  • Imventing

    i had this for a while now tbh. i just want cortana

  • zack

    My friend has had this update for about 3 weeks now. Don’t know how that happened

    • Shantzonpoint

      He was part of the preview program.

  • zack

    Am I going to have to buy bo1 again for xbox one? Is my prestige going to reset along with all my guns and camos? If so, not a chance I will play it

    • If it’s all on the account you have it on then no it won’t be reset – you will have everything. You will have to buy it digitally, unless you have the disc copy – in which you just put the disc in your Xbox One

  • ScOott

    What time this hit the uk, just turned mine on, no option to update ?

    • Keshav Bhat

      Settings -> Console -> Updates

      • ScOott

        Thanks

  • ColonelBazz

    I have to say while PS4 pretty much destroyed Xbox One on release, Xbox is slowly turning the tables. While PS4 came with some really cool features, Xbox One was getting far behind. But now PS4 didn’t really come with anything new for quite a while and Xbox One is getting some new cool features + the Xbox One Elite controller. It’s an expensive controller, but still cheaper than for example a Scuf. And it comes with other parts that you can easely switch etc. Other than just a 1TB version of the PS4, PS4 didn’t really come with any new hardware. The camera is a joke tbh and the controller has really bad quality, at least compared to the ps3 controllers. My R2 button makes a cracking noise and doesn’t have that smooth feeling anymore. My left stick is worn of on the right side. And this is the case with all my PS4 controllers (even the scuf 4ps)… People say I need to care for my controllers etc. because they don’t seem to have those issues. But I’m wondering why this happens now when I never had any problems with my PS3 controllers? Even my very first ps3 controller (so the one without rumblers etc) still works perfectly fine and the sticks are barely worn. So I kinda hope Sony could make a controller like the Elite version from Xbox with quality like the PS3 controllers and maybe a new feature, instead of doing tiny updates on the ones that excist.

  • Logic Chief

    I love xbox get up to a boat load of free games how can it go wrong more games on its way every new backwards comp update

  • Jan

    The new UI is broken as shit. HOW THE FUCK DO I BUY STUFF?! WHERE IS THE STORE?! WHERE ARE THE APPS?! I’M TRYING TO GIVE YOU MONEY HERE, MICROSOFT

    • Jan

      Oh I see now, there was a “store” option further to the right. It was comnpletely invisible against my background (an achievement background from a game). So, still pretty shitty UI that menu items can be invisible.

      • John Snow

        That sounds like your fault for putting a background with the same text
