Looking forward to playing Just Cause. It's my kind of stupid video game fun, but just a little too stupid to directly pay money for.

Final Fantasy IX for sure. That game is incredible, and one of the best video games, and PlayStation 1 games, ever made.

The new batch of FPS Boost titles hit. There's a lot.

Highlights for me include Far Cry 5 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I'm sure a full list of the new titles will be out soon.

Is there a way to just see what was added today? I don't have photographic memory so I can't just compare it to the old list perfectly preserved in my mind or anything.

Does MS not actually own Alan Wake?

Current rumor is Alan wake may get a remaster so it can be on Playstation consoles to help tie in with Control. Could be why it's getting removed too.

But yeah MS doesn't have a lock on it anymore.

It is extremely heavily implied in the Control DLC that there's new Alan Wake on the way, too. So I could see something like a remaster to promote their next new game that will probably be a sequel to both Alan Wake and Control.

My series X is really muddy on my Samsung 7 TV -- noticeably so from my other consoles.
Is there a setting I'm missing? Seeing others are having similar issues on other TVs.

Have you done the TV calibration? My Samsung TV was pretty unimpressive until I did it.

EDIT: I also had to turn UHD on per-HDMI port, which seemed odd to me.

I did the calibration on the system. I'll check for the UHD per port. Might factory reset the TV and try again. I oddly noticed because Peggle 2 looks really muddy.

It's lovely, but to be fair Sony was the one during the PS3/360 gen trying to get cross play happening with Microsoft refusing. Market leaders don't have anything to gain and everything to lose from allowing it.

yeah you're right, it definitely goes both ways, but I don't remember Sony then going out and attempting to ink a deal with Nintendo to get crossplay Wii or DS titles (not that there would have been many to begin with given the game offerings of the PS3/PSP compared to the Wii/DS) in the same way MS did. MS was busy trying to get stupid rear end Games For Windows Live off the ground and once they said no, Sony didn't exactly do anything to further cross-play as a concept other than sit on their own balls like Mr. Belvedere

i have never seen any hardware maker just completely give up the way microsoft did in like 2011. they just stopped giving a single solitary gently caress about the xbox 360 and it is no surprise to me that the ps3 eventually passed it in sales.

there was that really exciting period where they were coming up with neat poo poo like 1 vs. 100 and game room, and when that poo poo didn't take off the way they wanted it to it's like they just went 'uhhh, well, here's kinect then i guess'.

Kinect launched very strong and Sony was competing with the Move, so it became clear the strategy for both was to try and prolong the generation with each of their respective peripherals. Probably a big reason why the PS4/Bone generation got started like it did is because the Move failed and Sony had to realize that strategy wasnít gonna work, whereas Microsoft didnít even have reason to draw that conclusion.

That plus the big success they saw with putting media apps on consoles with the 360 made the Boneís strategy logical, in a way. I do kinda miss the HDMI in port.
