According to Major Nelson the XB1 sales today are Child of Light and, uh, Dragon Age Inquisition (again).
 
360 is Child of Light only.


It's on sale on x1 too. And this has been posted already. : p

I know, that's why I listed it for both XB1 and 360.

 

And there was still speculation in the thread about other stuff that could potentially go on sale tonight, hence my posting of this official announcement.

Why would anyone that's never owned a flat panel TV not expect good speakers? If the screen is good I'd expect the sound to be good too, otherwise why have built in speakers at all. No idea what a sound bar is, but I'm betting a surround setup is not in the cards. It's going to be a case of buy/return till the right one is found.

Get ready to do a lot of buy/returning then. My old 19" tv I found in the trash sounds far better than my newish 50" flat screen.

You're not going to find a TV with great sound if you're on a budget. You're also better off keeping that one and getting a soundbar.

Looking at the BB website sound bars start around $70, that's way too much to add onto the price of the TV. If he had that much extra to spend he'd be better off adding that onto a better TV.

This makes me pray my old tube set never ups and dies. All I've learned about these new sets in past week says they may look good but are garbage compared to the old obsolete sets.

Is it too unreasonable to want WWE 2K15 Showcase pass for the Xbox One to go on sale this week?  First year since the WWE games started doing the season pass stuff that I did not buy on day one, so I want to be rewarded for waiting, dammit!

Child of Light on Xbox One definitely interests me but looking at all of the games of Christmas past on my 360 gives me pause.

I have HD, my tube set is one of the last HDTV tube sets made. Bought it I think in 2006. Has everything except HDMI slots. My 360/ps3 are hooked up via composite cables. These new TV's though, they're def not made for me. Once my friend finds the right TV I'll be taking his old one and storing it in case mine ever breaks down.

Late this past summer I found a 46" Samsung flat screen at Target that was clearanced out.  The sound on it is fine.

 

If you buy junk, you're going to get junk though.

Another option might be to search Craigslist etc for an old tube TV.  I know what you're saying about the sound; many people though, are happy to get that 4-6 sq ft of living room back, and will sometimes give away old tube TVs to those willing to haul them away.

Should I buy Fable III if I haven't played Fable II? Is it a story that continues from one game to the next like Mass Effect? I'm considering that and Kinect Sports. Damn these games on demand and their free DLC.

I have 37" and 32" tube TVs and a 52" projection TV that I'm trying to figure out what to do with right now after replacing all of them with 50" flat screens.  Goodwill won't take them, it's illegal to put them out to be picked up as trash, and offering them free on Craigslist gets zero responses.

 

I got Diablo and Trials...  I want to get GTAV, but can't justify paying $50 for a game I already own on 360.

I don't think it directly follows, like I don't think anything you did "carries over" or anything like that. You should probably play Fable 2 anyway, because its way better, but I don't think you'll be too totally lost or anything if you go right into 3.

I feel like Praxus might actually be the best troll ever and bone of us realize it.

Traded off DAI and Diablo UEE today and bought them with digital funny money instead. Diablo was the last remaining BF game I bought this year and they've now all been traded back in under a month. Only Alien and Fantasia got even a brief play to see if I would want to buy them again at some point.

Not "too", it is tomorrow's (12/24) deal.  Around 9-10am Eastern each morning, the daily 360 deal for the *following* day goes live.  Then around 7pm Eastern, the XB1 deal for the following day goes live.

Also Omega Mode is the best thing  to ever happen to Street Fighter IV. It's sooooo good, I'm never touching OG SFIV ever again. That Gen Infinite is bullshit though.

Ticket to Ride. Published by Microsoft Game Studios and never saw a sale in six and a half years.

I would be SO HAPPY if this went on sale! I've wanted it for years and have refused to pay full price. It's that CAG stubbornness I suppose. I'm also hoping for season pass sales on Bioshock Infinite, WWE '13 and WWE 2K14. Picked the last 2 up right after their last sales.

Update, not that anyone cares lol, on my friends new TV purchase. Decided on the bestbuy 32" 1080p Insignia, $190 including tax. Bought it yesterday, returning it tomorrow. The picture is terrific on it, but the sound is horrible. We spent two hours last night trying different settings with the sound and could not get it to sound as good as his old tube set. Sounded like speakers you find at the dollar store...

Good Lord, an Insignia?!?!?! Return that shit stat man. Two hd tvs and a combo dvd/vhs player of that brand have been nothing but problems in my experience or those who have an Insignia that I know. They're utter crap. Give it time and something will break/go bad on it.

 

This is how speakers are nowadays on HD tv sets as other said. This is the norm. Like how Prius cars used to be $10,000 dollars at 50 mpg and then people bought them in droves and Toyota was like "well, if they're lining up to buy these, let's charge more." And more and more they upped the price to like $25,000 minimum now. HD tvs had good speakers for a short time frame and then they started making the speakers sound like crud cause they knew consumers would buy soundbars/surround systems because they're 10000x better.

 

I LOLed when someone jokingly suggested you're a troll. You must not live in CA right?? I kid, I kid. Keep it real Prax.....speaking of, where is one of Chrono's 20 paragraph/awesomely linked posts? :cry:

California? No, other side of the country. Economically depressed Scranton, Pa.

I can't see buying a surround system for a living room that's the size of a standard bedroom, even if he, living on a small fixed income, could afford one. My friends apt is tiny. The living room would literally fit inside my own average normal sized bedroom. I'm not even sure what exactly a sound bar is, just that on a budget the ones at BB are way too expensive.

What do we all want that they never put on sale?

Half-Minute Hero

 

Deathsmiles IIX - It's even got a Christmas theme.  I already bought it, but I know there are people here would be snap it up, have a heart attack or both.

 

Deathsmiles to complete the set.

 

BioShock Infinite's pass has only had a 15% off markdown once and Gears Judgment has had 25% off twice. Those discounts don't really count.

Omega mode really made SFIV fresh again. Its like relearning all the characters and tactics are way different. Infinites were bound to happen in Omega mode, its made to be unbalanced and just ridiculous fun. It will never be patched either.
