  2. Let's face it: neither Sony nor Microsoft really seems to have their heart in actually launching the next generation this autumn...and honestly why would they?!? Look at these headwinds working against an enthusiastic launch: (1) A global pandemic that appears to be showing no significant signs of abating. (2) An international economic situation that can be described as "precarious" at best and is probably closer to "catastrophic". (3) Political and social unrest in many parts of the world, exacerbated by (1) and (2). And quite frankly, the level of enthusiasm among the gaming community is pretty muted if not completely non-existent for the most part, largely because of the same factors listed above and because this current generation is still trucking along quite nicely. I really get the sense that Microsoft and Sony are launching this autumn because they feel they "have" to as opposed to actually "wanting" to. So, Sony and Microsoft, please don't feel compelled to launch the next generation this autumn - it's quite alright to postpone it to spring or even summer 2021. We'll be just fine! I mean, have you SEEN our backlogs?!?!
  3. There was a time when I would've thought an NFL-less football game would've been a pointless endeavor... but, nowadays, it's not so silly a thought. There are several reasons for this; for one, pretty much everyone is tired of EA's bullshit. Madden has been a joke for years, and now we've learned that EA has secured the exclusive NFL license for at least the next few years. It feels like we won't ever get to play another good football game, ever. I think people would be willing to play a great football game, even if it didn't have licensed teams. I know, 2K tried this with All-Pro Football back when it lost the license, and it bombed, as it was extremely generic. But that was then. That was before online streaming, before deep character and decal customization, before e-sports. If e-sports have proven anything, it's that it doesn't matter what it is, as long as it's fun and there's a healthy community. If only there was a way to get people in with a really low cost of admission... oh, hello GAME PASS. Bring back AMPED, toss Forza Motorsport under the umbrella, and you already have an Xbox branded sports network tied together by game pass and xbox live. MLB doesn't hold onto its license nearly as tightly as NFL does, so that wouldn't be off the table either. Also, I would totally play a generic Wrestling game if it was a throwback to WCW vs NWO with excellent character customization. C'mon MS, do it. Doooo iiiiiit!
  4. Because I don't want to continue to clutter the Xbox Series X Information Thread, but I also want us to keep posting the funniest shit I've seen since the slow-motion collapse of American society started picking speed, feel free to lost every meme featuring the "Halo Infinite Brute" in this thread! I'll kick it off with my personal favorite:
  5. https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/07/16/players-first-you-are-the-future-of-gaming/ I think most of us expected this, but good to know. After trying Stadia a little more, and trying some xCloud beta as well, I think there is definitely a place for Game Streaming. This deal is essentially a Stadia killer in my opinion. Stadia needed a Netflix type library available to stream immediately from, not a bunch of older titles everyone's played, that you need to rebuy. It's going to be huge for Game Pass, where some games I kinda want to try, but don't necessarily care enough to download it. Now you can instantly try the huge catalog of Game Pass games in seconds. If you like it enough, download it for the optimal experience. Now if Microsoft can deliver with a solid slate of quality games from its large portfolio of studios, this could really be a big win for Game Pass.
  6. https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-07-09-how-minecraft-and-mojang-taught-xbox-how-to-buy-studios Really good read. Great to hear they are taking a far different approach than how they used to handle 1st Party. Also, sounds like we can definitely expect more acquisitions.
  7. A couple of users here know about my issue that I had this past week but I figured I'd post it here and see what you guys' thoughts are. So I have spent the past three months of the pandemic with my parents across the country from where I live (Los Angeles). I have an Xbox One S here at my parent's house and now a PS4 and a Switch along with my laptop so I'm pretty well supplied as far as gaming goes. Last week I had to fly back to my place to take care of some things and I was shocked to discover that my day one Xbox One X Scorpio edition had died. I would try to turn it on and it would power on for a second or two then cut out. I tried all of the troubleshooting steps, reseting the power supply, plugging it into a different outlet. No dice. Now I had been gone from the apartment for almost four months and the console should have been powered off during that time. I don't believe there were any power surges or outages in the apartment because no other electronics were affected and my clock in my bedroom still displayed the correct time. So I ruled out an electrical issues but here's where it gets weird. I went to power on my OG Xbox in my bedroom and that one was bricked too That one wouldn't even power on at all. So the only conclusion I could come to was that an update, pushed by MS during the time I was gone bricked these consoles. It's the only thing I can think of as again, no other electronics in the apartment displayed any issues. So... what say you?
  8. Teaser on Twitter today... Banished as the main antagonists? Yes please. I still do need to play Halo Wars 2, but the Atriox trailers were awesome. Edit - While this is for Halo Wars 2, and I don't know if Atriox will even be in the new Halo, I liked the idea of the Banish far more than whatever we were fighting in Halo 4 and 5.
  9. Ok, so maybe a dumb question but MS hasn't made this an easy process to set up. So basically, I'm trying to figure out the best way to set my kids up with some games. For the last few years we've been sharing an Xbox One S, my account has the Gold (and Gamepass) sub, and all the games are purchased through me. They then play their games on their own accounts on the box, like the little leeches they are I finally picked up an X1X and will be moving the 1S to their bedroom...how do I set this up so they can still play the games and use Gold? Do I leave the 1S as my "home" Xbox? I believe doing so would mean I'd lose access on the X1X if the internet went out, right? Because it wouldn't be "home"? If I leave their box as my "home", can my wife still use her own account on the 1X and have access to our stuff? aaaaagh I hate having multiple consoles lol Thanks for your help, I hope I was clear enough.
  10. Is no one playing this? I've actually been really loving it. While simple, it really does a good job of having a great loot system that makes finding new loot fun and meaningful. Also has a lot if pretty varied build potential depending on the loot u find. For whatever reason it's not a Play Anywhere title though which is bullshit since it lends itself perfectly for it.
  11. ..through the damn trilogy collection? I tried on the Xbone...said go to website. go to website, its listed but not damn price..so unless I am internet failing..im guessing the 360 marketplace is the only option...what a crock. it doesnt help that im fighting the Animal Crossing online experience (turnips!) as i search
  12. "As per some of our earlier information on Xbox "Lockhart" and the Xbox Series X, we're expecting Lockhart to be a 4TF "entry-point" to next-gen gaming, and it should effectively replace the Xbox One X. This system is designed to be affordable but will offer aspects of a next-gen experience currently unavailable to past-gen consoles, presumably in the form of NVME loading speeds and perhaps some limited ray-tracing. We have no idea about the capabilities of Lockhart outside that magical "4TF" GPU number, which came alongside more of our detailed Xbox Series X info that turned out to be accurate." "In addition to Lockhart potentially moving out of the lab into the homes of internal Microsoft testers, we've heard Team Xbox is building a replacement for its 2014 Xbox Stereo Headset. If our sourcing on this is accurate, the new headset will be fully wireless, compatible with Xbox, PC, and mobile devices, presumably via separate Bluetooth and Xbox Wireless signals" More details here, reiterating prior Fable rumors as well: https://www.windowscentral.com/okay-lets-talk-about-current-xbox-rumors-may-and-june-events-lockhart-revealed-and-more
