DBZ Season 1 in HD Free on Xbox One

Post by samuraix123 » Tue Mar 04, 2014 10:44 am

Hello Everyone! I just felt like sharing that Dragonball Z season 1 in HD is available free on Xbox One
US

Canada

The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128

Wait.. Xbox One.. only? No Xbox 360?

Way to alienate their own customers. :|

I'd love to have those free 1080p/4x3 HD even though they're locked to US without a proxy of some kind.

They're not really alienating their own customers. Whoever has an X-Box 360, has one. But X-Box One is the new kid on the block and wants to promote unique features. Nothing wrong with that. I have a PS4 and knowing what it costs and what it took to get one this year, yeah, I expect content on it that you can't get on PS3.

Most people who own an Xbox 360 decided to go with PS4 or are going to because Xbox One was a huge disappointment, so they should try to maintain the 360 customers that they still have left before losing them to PlayStation completely.

PS2 won the 6th gen, 360 the 7th gen and PS4 the 8th gen.

Damn, the PS4 hasn't even been out for half a year yet and it's already won? Give me a break! :lol:

Yep!

I'm downloading them as we speak (001-030 can't add the other 9 to the download list). Each episode is around 1.70 GB to 1.80 GB large.

Here's a pic I took with a Sony 1080 camera:

You can see it's very grainy even though it wasn't a direct capture (wish I had an ElGato to capture this).

PlayStation is better suited for gaming (+ superior exclusives) than XO, has less issues and doesn't have a paywall on everything, also PS Plus makes paying a subscription worthwhile.

Lol Nobody's going to be buying any 360s just because of this, so why should they care? Besides, I have a PS4 and don't see how it could be "better." It really only plays games. It's not very good with other media. X-Box One plays games...so I don't know how anyone could say one is better than the other.

It used to be, "Sega is better, it has Sonic!" "No, Nintendo is better, it has Mario!" Today, 95% of the games are the same. So the argument really now is preference. I got a PS4 because I always preferred the PS controller, I have a PS Plus subscription, I like the PS layout. Those who always liked 360 more can't make those arguments, so what are the standards for determining which system is better? The PS4 plays games. Doesn't recognize USB, doesn't play CDs, the Blu-ray player is annoying because when pausing/FF/Rew, it puts up a giant picture of the Blu-ray, which is annoying. The streaming thing is boring. I love it, but I love the games, layout, controller, etc. I see no real explainable way in which it's "better" than an X-Box One. It's preference and I don't get how someone who preferred 360 can change their preference so easily. And this is spoken by a PS4 owner who has zero intent on getting an X-Box One.

It's good to know for Xbox users.

Well, you know, that's what game consoles are supposed to do. Play games, not be a media box like Xbox One.

I would respond to why Xbox 360 owners preferred to go with PS4 than XO, but that should be obvious with any research.

It's not about childish console wars, just the mere fact of which is the better console overall.
Fizzer wrote:So its the Levels restoration?
Yeah, it is.

They still haven't updated to the new 16x9 HD episodes so it's a good thing they made this free for everyone (in US & CA).

That's a matter of opinion, not fact. Not to mention, it's off-topic.

These are the same episodes available on PSN only for free, then? Huh. How high is the episode count? 40?
[quote="Brakus"]For all the flack that FUNimation gets on this forum for their quote about DBZ, there's some modicum of truth to it: a 9-year-old is born every day. Or in some cases, "reborn". DBZ may be a kids' show, but it's been so close to so many hearts all over Japan, America, and quite possibly, even the world.[/quote]

You'd need an Xbox 360 / ONE but without it these episodes are sort of useless because they have DRM, but if you know how to remove it then they're watchable anywhere, or by using VPN/proxy.

39

001-039 episodes should be about 66GB-ish in total.

That's 1 thing I absolutely hate about Gamefaqs. you can't ask a question or anything without either getting a smart ass remark, or trolled. lol so I stopped going to it. I'm glad we don't have to worry about it here.

There's no need for a console war. The PS4's hardware is objectively better by a relatively large margin. I won't get into technical details, it's mostly aimless and the proof is in the games that have released already. It's the reason you're seeing games like Ground Zeroes running at 1080p 60fps with the Xbone counterpart running at 720p 60fps. There's many other examples that adhere to this pattern too.

It doesn't matter though. You're going to buy a console based on your needs. Perhaps you like the media-centric features of the Xbox One and its exclusives or maybe you're into Sony's ones and their back upcoming back catalogue via Gaikai.

I game on PC, I find the whole pricing debacle and brand favourtism absurd. $100 extra dollars for inferior hardware, that's crazy talk to me but at the same time, I totally understand the aforementioned different needs.

I don't think much more needs to be said.
