I see a lot of people saying "why not MS," but apparently EA had first right of refusal on all acquisition offers, so MS wasn't going to be buying them unless EA basically let them go.

Maybe not Respawn but MS does need to step up with some acquisitions to get more exclusives. And from recent interviews, it sounds like they’re heading in that direction.

Z-Saber or any of you guys that have an X and are playing Titanfall 2, can you go to it on the My Games dashboard screen and do the start+select+left bumper+right bumper thing and let me know if you are seeing an "Applied: Xbox Scorpio" indication?

Just trying to figure out if the menu itself is bugged or if I'm really not downloading X assets.

Here's some photos with an example of what I'm talking about. My Halo 5 has that "Applied: Xbox Scorpio" indication on it, but Titanfall 2 (and Killer Instinct) do not, despite all three games being flagged as "X1XE: True."

Good luck, I've been asking pretty much the same thing since last week for the same reasons and I want able to get anyone to do that. But I'm a "lurker", so you might get better luck, being part of the clique.

 

From what I've gathered though is that not all the games that are X1XE: True have their patches out yet. I'm not able to download any Titanfall 2 patch neither for the moment, but that's on my 1S and I've been having problems getting the 1X patches period, and yes I've checked the 4k option in my settings.

If all future games, as 2K has talked about doing it for their future games as well, go the loot box/in-game currency/item packs microtransaction route, it looks like I'll be taking a break at picking up modern games and just sit on my large large backlog for a while.

I kinda assumed they were already in-house devs for EA, too, like Bioware. EA owns the Titanfall IP regardless, right? So it's not like Respawn could make Titanfall 3 without EA.

 

After Mass Effect got canned and Visceral was dissolved, though, I'm not excited by this news.

Speaking of EA, looks like they may turn to a subscription-based model for sports games in the future:

I think as long as you're able to stop and keep whatever version you're up to it's a win-win IMO.

Same exact scenario for me.

 

The frustrating thing is people continually telling me "X1XE: True" means it's enhanced. X1XE: True means nothing to the player or content installed on the console, that just means that the game is classified as X1X enhanced on Microsoft's end.

 

I thought I downloaded the 4k stuff on my S external hard drive before I sold the console, but even after deleting and redownloading the entire game on my X, I'm still not seeing any applied "enhanced updates" other than for Halo 5.

I finished the Battlefront 2 prequel book yesterday and liked it. A good SW thriller. Still planning on playing through the campaign with the Access trial.

You still think "X1XE: True" means the game has installed the enhanced assets, so you don't know what you're talking about. I can install Halo 5 off the disc as-is, before I take any updates, and it'll still say X1XE: True if I view the data on the My Games menu.

 

So please, stop "helping."

FYI you can only play a few chapters of the campaign with the EA Access trial.

Only that the game will show on the "enhanced games" menu.  Which does not mean that your game is enhanced, just that there is an enhancement for it if you haven't downloaded already.  At that, it's false and screwed up anyway.  All enhanced games don't say "Scorpio" in the description, either

I would be happy with that if it just meant getting a new Castlevania.

I know a lot of you hate any mention of Gamestop (it does make my heart hurt a little), there's a B2G1 on X1 games, and a ton of really good BC games for less than $5. Lots of used prices discounted alongside, saw Quantum Break for $15 base:

Was trading in stuff at GS tonight to get my other One X ordered, saw this deal. Am Elite Pro. Paid just under $40 for:

Final Fantasy 15
Hitman Steelbook
Quantum Break

All are X enhanced I think!

Yeah... CoD WWII MP is great. No gimmicks, just a great FPS MP. It's finally pulled me away from Fortnite because it's so good.

Thinking about an X for Christmas I only have a 1080P TV and I know it does super sampling to make it look better on the 1080P TV so I would still see some benefit until I got a 4k TV a little later. My question though, to see those improvements on a 1080P TV do you still have to download the larger 4k patches?


1080p tv on my Xbox One X user here. I’ve been downloading the patches, because it’s not just supersampling, it’s the far better textures. You will need the X versions of the games in many cases to see the best.

But I will say that on Rise of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed, and even Forza 7, I can see an appreciable difference in image quality As well as frame rate.

Another Xbox One X is on the way to me for my 4K tv. Then I will see how it really shines. But even if I don’t upgrade my 1080p for a while, I’m glad I have the best versions of games on that tv.

Quest rewards are rolling in. I got a month of gold. I think I was at the top level for that one.

I can't remember if I hit the top  goal or not. I got 500,000 for GTA V Online.

Duck Dynasty for the 360 appears to have been delisted.  It was in Store Parser's 360 markdowns Monday night, ($5.99 for Gold, down from $39.99), but the sale was marked as expired today, and checking the marketplace page, it's gone.  The XB1 game is still available, though.
