I bought a 4k oled tv in anticipation of the xbox one x which i then used to play cuphead, a 1080p game that's made to look like a 1930s cartoon. I've since bought about a dozen more games which I haven't played yet, but most recently purchased and played tempest 4000, a remake of an atari game from 1981 but with marginally better graphics.

It's still gotten more use than my ps4pro for which i have purchased 2 games and played none.

A PC does the first two things better, the Xbox just has less community full stop and who the gently caress gives a poo poo about the UI? You see it for 3 or 4 seconds before you start a game.
I like that the latest update changed the mixer tab so that my most powerful console ever doesn't stutter as much when going to the store tab to buy more games I'll never play.

It's really easy to sign up for gold/game pass but as far as I can tell there's no way to turn off auto renewal on the xbox itself short of using the browser. Am I missing something or is this just a lovely way they try to keep you paying for the subscriptions?

Its pc/website only in the usa. No shut off on console
They went through the trouble to make it work the way it should but didn't enable it for the US because our weak consumer protection laws allow them to be shitheads, got it.

I don't play online at all, but often when I go buy something it ends up being a better deal to buy gold or gamepass first and always turns on auto renew, is there a way to prevent that? Also, why do you get the deals sometimes with gold and sometimes with gamepass?

I thought RDR2 was supposed to be a good game and not a "riding a horse through snow" simulator.

Push passed it. Once you get to the open world stuff itís way better. The first two hours in the snow is a slog.
I don't "get" the horse controls at all. It doesn't always move in the direction I steer and I ended up failing the escort mission because I drove into some trees and fell off. From what I read in the RDR2 thread it looks like the horse is a pretty big part of the game so I'm not really interested in playing it anymore. I'l admit I'm not great at 3d games but I can at least drive the vehicles in the Halo games and ride the horse in Breath of the Wild.

That option doesn't show up for me, I had it sitting at the title screen for a while so it's for sure been running for more than two hours. I'll keep that in mind next time. Thank you!

Contact support. If you bought it recently there's still a chance you could get a refund.
I did this and got an email saying they're evaluating it. I guess worst case it can keep all my other unplayed games company.

Xbox One X will make you want to play more games, and enjoy the games you play more. Thats Facts
I got the X when it came out and have purchased about a dozen games, buying a 65" 4K OLED ahead of time in anticipation. I've beaten Cuphead on expert and played RDR2 past the tutorial to see if it becomes fun (it doesn't), as well as some local multiplayer Mortal Kombat XL and MCC when my friends come over. Maybe when Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales come out I'll get lucky and buy a game that I end up playing.

I've bought it every time there was a deal but never ended up playing anything. It's infuriating using the store because it makes my "world's most powerful console" lag like an android phone from 2010.

I enjoy both. Xbox for the game pass and the PS4 for the exclusives like God of War, Spiderman, Last of Us etc. .
I own all 3 of those on my PS4Pro and haven't played them yet, either.

Maybe you shouldn't have done all that if you don't like playing video games?
That's the thing, I do like video games. I grew up with an NES and Genesis and currently have over a dozen consoles plus a PC and who knows how many games. Now that I have plenty of disposable income I could get any game I want but nothing looks fun even with an overwhelming number of choices. I had lots of fun playing Cuphead but there hasn't been anything since.

That's not how it works. Except for weird niche products like the nvidia one, a TV has 1 specific output refresh rate.

That feature is for monitors.

In terms of moving consoles they are, actually. Nintendo would sell basically zero consoles if you could buy a Mario, Pokemon or Zelda game on a PlayStation.
a significant portion of switch owners only use the handheld mode, not to mention the lite is only $200. if i had to choose between getting a game on the switch or ps4 i'd choose the switch every time because the ps4 controller is garbage

External 4K Bluray drives are around $100 and I don't expect them to be compatible with any of the digital consoles.
this was my complaint. make the consoles smaller and slightly cheaper but let you buy a separate drive if you still want one. a mechanical drive is a big failure point so having something any user can replace easily would be a big benefit

Every meg matters some months, but even ignoring a data cap I usually still want the benefits of physical, especially on Switch where getting cartridges saves tons of space on the sd card
the benefits of physical are having to keep all of your disc cases out in the same area as your console, eject the game you're done playing, put it away in the case, get the game you want to play out, insert it and then wait for it to download the exact same update the digital version needs

i thought cartridges would be fun for the switch but i stopped bothering and have been selling them off and rebuying digital because they're really just an annoyance

what do you consider a good dpad? the switch pro controller is decent but i remember having some problems with the up direction? the xbox one is good and i don't have any complaints, used it to beat cuphead and bloodstained. the playstation dpad is the absolute worst and i've hated it since the ps1. why is it split up? how is it simultaneously mushy and rigid? casting spells in SoTN was a no go on that, but i can do it just fine on the xbox dpad
