Hi everybody!

Got treated to a Xbox One for Christmas to sit along side my ps4, mainly so I could replay Halo and Gears of war. Got to say I'm loving it so far!
I've been visiting the site for a few months in the build up to xmas, so thought now would be a good time to introduce my self. I'm 27, male and from the UK.
My gamertag is realbehan88
Will mainly be playing Halo, Gears of War, Forza and FIFA. So feel free to give me an add.

Welcome to the club. If I may make a recommendation, Sunset Overdrive is an awesome game, and I've seen it going for as low as $20 these days. Whenever you get a chance I'd say check it out, especially if you've liked any past games from Insomniac.

Hey guys, thanks for the warm welcome. Added you to my friends list. Hopefully join up with a few of you for some gaming in the near future.
@Gamer83 I've had my eye on this game since I decided to make the jump to the one. I've got £20 credit on the marketplace, so may have to wait for a price drop on there.

And I thought me having 490 Xbox points was good...

I added you, and my gamertag's Zerodactyl. I'll send a message, too.

It'll happen at some point. There've been some pretty good Xbox Live sales over the last year.

If any newcomers to XB1 want to add me, please feel free to do so. I do ask though that you also add a message to say that you mention PureXbox so I know its not a spam.

I often play mainly shooters online - games like Destiny (co-op not PvP), CoD:BO3 (both co-op and PvP) and Gears of War (co-op and PvP) but also happily play other genres/games if I have them

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

Looks like I'm the first staffer here! A big hello and welcome to you @realbehan88 and you @zerodactyl. Glad to hear you've come in from the cold and joined what we feel is the best Xbox community on the internet. If you fancy grabbing a game with me at some point then message me: @DesignateTurian GT = DesignateTurian

Seeing as you are both new to Xbox One and may be looking for games to play, and some people to play with, we run relatively regular games nights for a few Xbox classics such as Titanfall, Forza and Plants Vs Zombies. Click this to be taken to the Game Night forum page.

In addition we have regular pureXbox Twitch streams of new releases and indie gems, some of which you can actively participate in. Click here to be taken to the pureXbox Twitch page or here to go to our YouTube page

To keep up with the latest news on the go then we have Twitter and Facebook

Information overload!

I'm looking forward to gaming with you soon

@DesignateTurian: thanks for the welcome. Like I said in my original post I've been visiting the site for a few months and it seems like a really good and friendly community.
Thanks for all the info! I look forward to checking it all out and taking part as much as possible.
Will add your gamertag now. Look forward to gaming with all you guys in the future.

@DesignateTurian Great stuff, and I'm really looking forward to playing with y'all (good thing I got EA Access in my bundle so I can play games like Titanfall). Just added you on Xbox (gamertag is Zerodactyl).

I used to be an active NintendoLife user in 2014 and a bit of 2015 (I was a Nintendo maniac), but I decided to try out something new and get an Xbox One. Absolutely loving it so far, and the games are beautiful.

Being the second "staff" member in here, welcome y'all, I see Des has rolled out the welcome wagon...

Any ideas for games to play together with like minded friends would be gratefully received, I'm thinking maybe a Forza 6 night may be on the cards fairly soon?

Hey @Fink-Nottle. Firstly a warm welcome to pureXbox! It's always great to get people trying out the Xbox and discovering a great gaming community along with it. I'll give you an add and I'm sure your voice isn't that bad If you think yours is bad, check out my Twitch streams and you get the idea of how good (read: bad) I am.

If you are looking for some games to play and people to play with we run a few Games Nights every-so-often. Games such as Titanfall and Forza, a big favourite of @Red620Ti, another Community Ambassador. And if you are looking for that Splatoon-y vibe then I thoroughly recommend checking out Plants vs Zombies. There's a new one coming out in March which @MegaKillScreen, one of our other Community Ambassadors (we're everywhere!!), is champing at the bit to get a Game Night running for.

Regarding the Xbox Preview Program there is little point in joining currently since backwards compatibility launched to everyone in November. In addition we found that Microsoft reduced the number of players being accepted into the program during the backwards compatibility testing period due to increased demand. Some members invites took several weeks with others not appearing at all.

Hi! The only game out of that list that I play is Forza ... well the Horizon games. I do have Gears, but I rarely touch it. I did add you as a friend, but my username on live is GrasslandBandit.

i have the xbox one and a ps4.ps4 in office and xbox one in lounge, but i'm finding people on xbox to be very unfriendly and theres alot of nastiness on there....ive never had any trouble on ps4.
I also find xbox to run very slow and loading times especially on black ops 3 to be awful.
I did enjoy the console at first but the negative environment is making me think of selling this for another ps4...
Maybe i'm just unlucky with who ive met...my screen name is captain britain and some guy messaged me yesterday to say "F*ck the queen" , very strange,totally uncalled for i left the lobby and blocked the idiot.
any one else had much unpleasantness?
