I'm very much looking forward to this on Xbox. They haven't given a timeline of when it will be available. All I've heard is that the devs have it running on an Xbox and want to get it to Preview program soon.

The game looks to be very much my kind of game.

Also halo 3 is not as good as I remember it being originally. It's seriously kind of awful to play now.

I never played halo 2 when it came out. I played halo 1 Xbox Lan parties and some of pc but pistol is still way too op and melee feels weird.

Oddly enough, in the entire MCC, halo 4 is the most playable one.

Yeah same. I'm looking forward to it.

Anyone know if there is some way to get that dumb over priced season pass for FO4 for cheap? Does it go on sale much? I want to pick it up but I don't want to pay 50 bones for it.

If MCC games have no patches then why do they have all the other updates? All the dlc is there for h3 that I recall.

Like why not use a flattened copy of h3 with all updates rather than the base game + maps?

Gotta say it's kind of fun playing fallout with actual mods since PS4 doesn't let almost anything through. Especially as a life long console dude. Is Skyrim the same deal on Xbox?

It's not any worse than Skyrim is on its own. I think I have a blood mod, a masonry mod (makes stonework look better) and a weather mod.

Before I installed them the game crashed once or twice, and it's been the same after.

I don't think it's strictly a curation thing, but more that the PS4 is more restrictive about the amount of resources available to mods. Whatever the actual reason, yes, the same situation is true for Skyrim so from least to mode moddable:

PS3 and 360 versions of Skyrim, no modding at all
PS4 version of Skyrim SE, highly limited modding
Xbox One version of Skyrim SE, limited modding
PC version of Skyrim SE, decent amounts of modding. Also breaks the 4 gig RAM limit but a bunch of mods haven't migrated to SE yet (and may never, depending on the original author's situation)
PC version of original Skyrim, all the mods

No idea if Skyrim VR will allow mods, if so expect the most epic titty mods you've ever seen. I would expect Switch Skyrim won't do mods at all.

State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition for Xbox One is higher res, and includes all the major DLC for the original 360 release and some extra game mode that doesn't matter much but you might like.

Has anyone else been having issues with either not being able to connect or stay connected in multiplayer games, specifically in the UK/Europe? I did recently have no internet access at all for a few days so it could be ISP issues. The games in question are GTA V, World of Tanks and Friday the thirteenth. The new Marvel mmo seems fine and the guild stuff in Injustice 2 works, as does the store.

I've decided it's time to get a console of this generation. Is there any reason to get the xbone s or x instead of the original if I'm not really picky about super hd gaming experiences? I want the cheapest console I can get without locking myself out of any important functionality.

The Xbone S is fine unless you love anime with all your heart and soul. You can play 95%+ of the games you would ever want to play on it, plus one or two decent games in a ocean of decent games.

Why compromise when a PS4 has all the Xbox games and a boatload of major exclusives, of the anime and non-anime (e.g. Uncharted, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nioh) type?

I mean, if all your friends got Xbones then get an Xbone so you can play with them, otherwise get a PS4.

You may need to get yourself ready for the Xbox experience like Conan, though.

Anyhoo if your choice box is Xbox the jist is that the original Xbox One is big, mandates a horizontal orientation, has an annoying power brick which can fail, can't output in HDR, and can't play 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays. The Xbox One S is smaller, has its power brick internally so the power cord is much simpler, and can play 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays. It will operate vertically but you need a stand for it which is generally sold separately. Also the Xbox One S requires a USB adapter if you want a Kinect 2.0, bearing in mind it's like super-dead. For games the framerate and resolution is identical to the original, but some newer games do allow for HDR.

The Xbox One X is going to upgrade a bunch of games similar to the PS4 Pro, with some games apparently downloading mandatory HD assets (all we know is that Forza 7 is meant to be a 100 gig game so even physical copies will have a 40+ gig patch not unlike how Halo 5 currently has a 51.9 gig patch) to these units (but not to the original or the S). More or less the same games getting PS4 Pro Enhancements, assuming they have Xbox versions, will have similar boosts likely pushing things further still, we should know more closer to its launch.


For PS4's the PS4 Pro does 4K gaming now. Every non-pro PS4 is functionally the same, supporting HDR output but not 4K. No PS4 can play Ultra HD Blu-rays, only regular Blu-rays.

Well you'd have to wait til like November for the x to come out so just get an xbone s because they're available at basically the same price now in the bundles.
