Anyone's X1X not going to sleep?  Like, I can leave it throughout the entire night, and the light is still on.

That was happening to me but finally saw it go off by itself for the first time today.

Pretty sure Skyrim just got its X patch. Not showing up in the Xbox One Enhanced games on the console. But it got an update and just fired it up. Looks incredible (for its age, obviously). Trees, textures and draw distance look phenomenal.

Also just noticed mods are gone. WTF?

"You’ll also see adaptive 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro and 4K on the Xbox One X"

 

 

Interesting wording there from Bungie  :-k

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.

The whistle that came with the GS CE of it is very good for pissing off telescammers!

Played some Titanfall 2 after the latest patch. Hate to sound like a broken record but another gorgeous display of X-dom. Smooth as butter with no resolution drops that I could see.

Yup.  I think folks complaining on message boards are lying about screen tears, etc.

I haven’t seen any screen tears. And they’re playing with tonight’s patch?

Lol it wasn't people on message boards, it was the digital foundry team themselves that talked about Titanfall 2's weird performance issues. Sounds like Respawn put in a fix, that was fast.

I (OGXB1) also got a Skyrim update, as well as Gears 4, Killer Instinct & Titanfall 2. Sigh, working on the Rocket League update atm. They added no penalty if another person already has left the match.

After the weekly deals you posted and this I just assume youre here to break our hearts and feed off our tears

If I lived off tears, I'd have been too full after visiting the Gears forums.  The new card series makes preorder characters and weapons craftable, as well as the zombie JD / Lancer / Gnasher from the Totino's promotion and the skins that came with the Gears XB1 S (Vintage Oscar / Retro / Boom).  People aren't too happy, though it might not be readily apparent anymore because threads were deleted.

Yeah, I knew about that. That’s why I was excited to the patch they released tonight to see if it was fixed. I just wasn’t sure if people were still complaining about screen tearing after the fix.



There’s some pretty big pricing errors on GameStop’s site right now if you are a Pro member. Final Fantasy XV and For Honor are actually free.

The best 4K game on Xbox One so far:

I played a few matches and saw micro stuttering on Angel City map but I *think* it was because I had a high ping and lots of chaos on the maps. I played a private match and also did Titan Brawl and there were *0* frame drops. They fixed whatever it was because the game looks gorgeous.

 

My previous crown for best 4k game is was smashed by Battlefront 2. TBH I think the combat is just OK and game is just OK, if a bit boring like the first one. However, I am blown away by the quality of the graphics. Ryse was the king for me graphics wise for a long time on the X1 but without a new X patch It doesn't hold a candle to Tomb Raider, Forza 7, Gears 4, BF2 or hell Halo 5 with the X patch at this point.

 

I went back to a lot of old games. Rainbow Six Vegas 1+2 stuttering are gone when engaged by terrorists in terrorist hunt. Blue Dragon frame rate is solid and loads a lot faster. Dark Souls still has frame drops when the dragon blows his fire on the bridge... I didn't get much further because I'm on NG+. Tekken Tag 2 looks much crisper and is still my go to Tekken game despite purchasing Tekken 7. GTAIV and Condemened can now hit near 60fps at times thanks to the power of the X.

 

Oh, also got to try Quantum Break. Sadly the cut scene lag and lip sync issues are still present. Not sure if they are going to go back to it but It's disappointing. I didn't get too far into my replay but the frame rate seemed fine and visual quality was great.

Yeah, I found that I’m doing better online with the boost in resolution and higher FPS. So fun!

Thanks, Bloomy. Saw this before work and I wept tears of joy.

I need to do more with MS rewards. Too lazy or spending too much time looking for deals instead of spending a few minutes a day to try to earn points

Only had 7500 banked up, but that's good enough for a $10 in MS bucks. Now to save up for the 29k for either a year of Game Pass or another year of Gold.

 

Thanks Bloomy!

what exactly is this? I've been way out of the loop. I got this yesterday. 

 

"Congratulations! You completed your Game Pass Goal. Your mystery gift is… a $5 Xbox Gift Card! Redeem on your console or Xbox.com/redeemcode by 6/30/2018. For more info visit Microsoft.com/giftcard."

 

The only thing I did was get the the free 14 day trial from dashboard and play like 2 hours of Dead Island DE with a friend. That's it. It expired last thursday 1 week exactly later i got that message. Paid $5 to play the trial :shock:

Spent 35K points to get $50 on Bing, still have 20K left over. I wanted to blow my whole load but I doubt the Black Friday sale will warrant it. Guess I'll just keep searching and banking.

I've got about that many points and I'm not sure whether I'll buy MS credit or not. Depends on the BF deals. A year of Gold and/or a year of Game Pass is worth more than the $40 you could get for the same number of points.

 

Also, I was spoiled by that one time you could get $5 for 500 points. I'm nearly done with the $200 I banked that night.

decent enough deal but probably still would have been better off doing the hot deal of live and flipping it here I had to debate going into this month whether to do that or wait

 

no real choice but to cash in now in case the next few months are hot deals of stuff I don't want/need

It's official! I am now a proud owner of a brand new baby xb1x scorpio edition! Apparently if someone doesn't pick up their pre-ordered console or game soon enough from gamestop they will eventually sell them. The first 2 stores said they wouldn't sell theirs yet but the 3rd said yes! Updating as I type this! There goes all my hard drive space!
