Is this the Xbox One’s speedy boot-up?

speedy

Right now, if you switch on your Xbox 360, it takes quite some time for he console to do its boot up splash screen, and become useable – and it’s only gotten worse over time as each dashboard iteration has added more and more features (and adverts). That is likely to change with the Xbox One.

This is apparently leaked footage of the Xbox One boot sequence, which is pretty damned fast and zippy. Excuse the diagonal stripe, that’s likely just a watermark. It could also be fake, and made from images of the dash we’ve seen, coupled with some fancy video editing.

I really hope it is this quick – because that’s what console gaming is supposed to be about. For reference, the dev units we’ve see don’t boot up that way – but they are dev units, not running final retail software.

          Open beer on the way to the console, then use boot up time to sit down and take first sip.

            Your console will just have to wait for you to put the beer down after that first sip.

            That’s why I requested extra vodka in place of tequila in my Long Island Iced Tea. It’s a potent antidote.

            I’m actually disappointed I never got to hear it from the master himself, and see the look on frustration on your face. 😀

    If true it really is impressive. But it could also be that the system is “Waking up” from its lower power mode.

      That’s still fine if that’s the case. As long as low power mode is dead quiet and sufficiently low power, I see no reason to ever actually switch the thing off.

    Stupid comments about Kinect watching you and MS being against gamers aside.
    And how Awes0me Sony is with their PS4 shooting out rainbows and regenerating our polar icecaps.

    I think the Xbox One will speak louder with actions 🙂

    Looking good, start saving up now!

      I am sure the Xbone will also shit Unicorns out of its Heat Sinks. But you have to admit that the negative rants from gamers is due to very poor marketing. The Negative snowball started rolling when they told gamers outside of the 21 countries that had Xbone support to fuck off.

      I am looking forward to the next 180 once they have a good install base. I don’t trust any of these buggers anymore.

        Agree’d that they made Marketing mistakes, but hey they at least have corrected most things, and some things they are sticking to their guns with good on them, for all we know the new kinect could be a success, if not its only 1 aspect of their console. Every console has negatives and positives at the end of the day competition is good for us the consumer. Long live Sony and MS.
