Shot I was thinking it was the 55P. That's what I have. We all gave this guys shit info cause we can't read. Lol

Poop, my bad. I was thinking of the 55 P series from last year.

Yeah, I wouldn't get this 5. Full-array local dimming is worth the money. Ignore my previous comment.

Well I guess the 5 Series that is on sale is not up to par, thanks for all the insight and will be saving my moneys for a sale on the real deal or just go crazy and.. pay full price  :???:  :oops:

Anyone got a theory as to why there’s no Dead Rising 3 content for sale in capcom’s publisher sale?

So apparently the Dolby Vision bring tested for Xbox One is not compatible with TCL TVs. Not too happy to hear that. Here’s the list of sets that are:

Hopefully TCLs get an update to support it.

I had no idea there were "versions" of Dolby Vision.  Life is way too complicated.

My theory is it's something buried in the contract language of 3 since it's technically published by MS and they couldn't be arsed with it this time around. While both 3 and 4 had a somewhat similar setup with MS handling publishing duties on the Xbox One, Dead Rising 4 had a PS4 version also. 

 

 

edit: also 2 seconds after hitting post on that I remembered, didn't the "base" version of Dead Rising 3 get removed from the store and there is just a version with the DLC called Apocalypse edition? I haven't looked in awhile so I don't even know if Dead Rising 3 DLC is still available stand alone. Some weird thing like what just happened to Shadow of War.

Tell me about it, I've been looking into getting a Dolby Atmos setup the last couple of months and I swear my head was spinning at times. Didn't want to really go giant receiver and speaker wire all over route so was looking into all the different sound bar with satellite sub and rear surround options. Eventually gave up and got some "7.1" headphones with a redeem code for the Dolby Atmos for headphones thing on the Xbox store. I do like it.

This much is true, but some of the alpha hyper super turbo add ons aren’t in the apocalypse edition. And the apocalypse edition itself isn’t even on sale. I like your theory about it being an MS vs Capcom thing, though. I hope one day I can get that stuff cheap.

Despite claiming that the Lambent skins for Gears 4 will be money only, The Coalition gave in to the backlash and are offering RNG packs available for credits.  3 cards for 400, 5 for 2,000.

 

I've bought 3 400 credits packs and 1 2000.  Pulled the Lambent Drone from a 400 pack.  I got some non-Lambent related stuff from the 2k pack, don't know if the 400 packs are limited to Lambent stuff.

Thank goodness they reversed and made the packs purchasable via cred. I got one character skin via a 2,000 cred pack and nothing but weapon skins in the 400 cred packs

Is Quantum Break really 100GB? Holy crap. Is there any way to download less than that?

Quantum Break is available on Gamepass.

https://www.microsof...vot:overviewtab

I just downloaded it and the game itself is only 48GB.  There's an optional Episode Pack that is 76GB.  That must be the videos that someone else had pointed out.

 

Really impressed that the settings menu lets you turn off copyrighted music in case you were streaming or recording.  I remember getting a copyright strike on a Youtube gameplay video because of the in-game radio (and the game had no way of letting players turn it off).

I just bought a TCL 5 series to use as a second PC monitor and overall I would say it's definitely worth the money, especially with the tcl upgrade promo discount code.

The 6 series, which also came out this year is a league better in HDR picture quality and brightness. It has local dimming zones, is backlit, and I believe 900 nits in brightness. The 5 series is edge lit and only gets about 280 nits.

When compared to my Sony 900e, the 5 series TCL pales in comparison with HDR, however it does perform well enough if you are in a darker environment. Also the 4k and monitor quality is excellent. In my case I just wanted a 43in 4k monitor and didn't need extreme brightness since I am sitting at a desk.

I would say if this was going to be your primary TV then save up for the 6 series as the HDR really shines with the higher end model.

This. 

 

I was blown away with how good it looks in HDR. HDR looked ok on my Samsung NU7300 but this is on a whole other level.

Alright CAGers, I need some help here.  I've been going back and forth trying to figure out the best deal, and just can't decide.  My gold expires at the end of next month, but my gamepass expires at the end of October, so I've been trying to find a way to keep them together.  Here's my debate: do I spend Bing points on my wife's account to gift myself a month of gold, or do I cancel my subscription now and then do the $2 for 2 months deal?  What makes the most sense from a CAG perspective?

If it is like their previous deals, you aren't eligible for the 2 for $2 deal. You can't have an active subscription at the time of purchase, and you said yours doesn't end until the end of next month.

I haven't checked it out but my friend did and I watched him play for a minute. He was disappointed and said it didn't play well at all and he plays PUBG on xbox, so it's not like he isn't used to buggy game preview games. When I watched him he was showing me how he could see an item but it wouldn't let him pick it up.

Does downloading it this way require automatic updates to be enabled on the console? It gave me the option which xbox to install to so I selected mine (my girlfriend's is my home xbox for game sharing purposes) and nothing happened. It didn't appear in my ready to install list either.

I already tried that earlier. I only had the option to purchase it on console. But since you said it I decided to check again for shits and giggles. Now it has an install option. :roll: I swear the store likes to screw with me. Tiles that other people see I don't, tiles that don't go to what they say they are (clickbait!?), and of course the constant crashes. Ugh.

Xbox store has been a fuxor tonight, trust me. I watched it do the little blue loading circle for 5 minutes until I unplugged my console from the power strip and let it reset. I think they are starting to over complicate things in there, need that sewn up Phil Spencer if you ever lurk here.

I noticed the 10% off ea access price for burnout paradise remastered says it ends in 10 days so i'm thinking that'll be when it gets added to the ea access vault
