Some early problems for Xbox One


The next gen system from Microsoft, Xbox One was just released to the world and while some people are enjoying their time with the console. There are some unlucky gamers dealing with issues.

One known issue relates to the disc drive, where once a disc is inserted the Xbox One makes a grinding noise, but the disc is unaffected.

The video below highlights the problem of the disc drive where it makes a noise.

Microsoft did release a statement about the problem.

“The issue is affecting a very small number of Xbox One customers. We’re working directly with those affected to get a replacement console to them as soon as possible through our advance exchange program. Rest assured, we are taking care of our customers.”

One nice thing they’re doing to the customers having this problem is providing them them with a complimentary game. They can choose from one of four titles: Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome or Zoo Tycoon.

Since the games are downloadable titles, Xbox One owners with a malfunctioning disc drive can still play them.

Another issue has gamers receiving an “E100″ notification, indicating a total hardware failure caused by an update error. The Xbox One troubleshooting page notes that this error requires you submit your Xbox One for repair.

You can do this via the Xbox Online Service Center.

Other issues owners have reported to the Xbox support message board include strange sounds coming from the machine, spontaneous system shutdowns, missing pixels and blank screens. While others can’t get their system to even turn on.

You can sound off in the comments section below if you’re having these issues or something completely different.

    Thank god my xbox one hasnt did anything wrong… and for yous to say oh my xbox one is better then your ps4 or my ps4 is better then your xbox your stupid…plain stupid. If I put my xbox one insides into a ps4 and turnt it on,, played a game right away with out you seeing the dashboard you would think that its a ps4 game and that this game shits on the xbox one version of the same game… same goes for if I would put the ps4 into a xbox one… what im trying to say is what I was just saying…people that say this console is better then the other is full of crap… both consoles are so much the same its not even funny. Yeah xbox one loads games faster, yeah ps4 has 50% more power, but none of that shit even matters when you sit on your couch and turn your next gen system on. The only thing that you can say this is better then that…is the video games… some dont come on both systems, most of them do.

      Your crap XBone, doesn’t hold a candle to my 3 year old pc lol!!! You got ripped.

        Lmfao.. dude im talking consoles not beefed up pc’s and no I didnt get ripped neither did the ps4 fans… if you wanna get tactical, there is no pc on the market…stock ( no upgrades) thats more powerful then the xbox one or ps4.

          Lol ok buddy, Newegg sells refurbished box’s with more power.

          Quote Forbes …

          “However, while the new consoles are significant leaps ahead in terms of raw processing power and design from their predecessors, it may come as a surprise that PCs are already much more powerful and capable of producing even better graphics in games.”

            Sorry said it wrong in last post. New pc from say bestbuy, walmart, microsoft… Stock! Not modded, I know a modded pc rapes all over any console.

          • Adam Bird

            I don’t think you read the Forbes article in its entirety. At the end it says exactly what all PC gamers already know. Even low end PCs sport more powerful processors, and the graphics cards in the new consoles is based off mid grade PC cards from a couple years ago.

            Hey, epic beast, I think Steve Starr might be mad he didn’t get a XB1 or
            PS4. I mean is it really necessary to state the obvious that most PC’s,
            modded or not, can out shine/perform/etc. any console to date.

            just an observation on my part. Happy gaming people, continue on. Nothing the see here.
