People with an X, what TV do you use? I hear good things, and my friend just got one and likes it, about TCL. Is that the best quality for price when it comes to 4k and HDR? Was thinking about getting one this weekend, don't know if I can wait 5 months for black friday to get it cheaper.

I have the new 6 series 55 inch from Best Buy, first 4k tv for me so it's hard to compare, but I love it. For $600 you can't beat it, the roku OS is really good, I was coming from an old fire tv stick and now I wonder why I ever got that thing. 4k Dolby Vision on a $600 TV. That being said I don't have the X yet so I can't comment on gaming.

 

Some people have had some manufacturing issues from what I read but none here.

We're making World Cup brackets at work... I have never watched it, who do I pick? I saw Brazil, Spain and Germany have the highest statistical chance but I'm leaning towards Iran because I didn't even know they have a team and they have a 1% chance of winning.

Im super hyped about the World Cup. I'm Colombian and have always played soccer so it's my big sporting event. I'm so fucking hyped. I'm going for Colombia, Spain, and England.

I will watch every game. My boss already knows for this month my productivity is going to drop big time.

Yeah, that's the one! I'm curious because it certainly has the look of a Skate game, but besides that I can't find more information about it besides the trailer.

It's NOT skate 4. I know because I have been dying for a new skate for years so I was waiting for it to be announced. This Session game is entirely different. Different controls, different developer, different game. It's a kickstarter project that I guess has been in production for awhile. https://www.kickstar...me-by-crea-ture It even has a prototype PC demo on that kickstarter page, I haven't tried it yet but was going to sometime soon.

What's the deal with A Boy and his Blob, there's no other mention of it in your post.

That was last week's sale.  I update the OP with the new XB1 DwG sales, but haven't updated the 360 deals or thread title yet.

There's also a $119,99 Ultimate Edition

 

https://www.microsof...ff_7593_1238890

 

I find it baffling that the only difference between the Gold edition and the Ultimate one is a set of outfits and stuff for the ship. Personally don't think that warrants the $30 difference.

Didn't see it. Thanks!

This time its going to be Brazil. While my favorite is Argentina, its more hope than logic to pick Argentina (even with the great Messi in the team). My first pick is Brazil, followed by Germany. France / Argentina & Spain follow, in that order.

 

Prediction: Brazil to win the WC 2018.

Spain just fired their "coach" like today or last night, so maybe not them

Spain, Brazil, Germany. All solid picks. Argentina is usually in the mix. Colombia usually is a good pick too.

Mexico is fun to cheer for but they face Germany right off. Tough match up.

I'm cheering for England but honestly they usually underperform in the World Cup.

My sleeper picks: Uruguay and France

Sony x900e - I also use it as a pc monitor.  49"  Besides 4K it can also do 1080p at 120hz for PC games which is awesome!

I have a pc with a gtx 1060 6GB hooked to it as well as X1X and PS4 Pro.  The HDR is awe inspiring.

I was gonna go the TCL route but for extra $300 I went sony x900e ($600 to $900 at BF week) - glad I did.

Yeah, I think Germany's taking it again and will therefore tie Brazil with 5 World Cup wins.

 

Argentina relies too much on Messi and they almost got eliminated during the qualifying stage. Last time Argentina won the big one was back in 1986 and last time they won anything at all was the Copa America in Ecuador back in 1993. For 25 years, Argentina last lost every single tournament they've been in.

 

Spain can still win it despite the ordeal with their now former coach getting fired earlier today. However, with the exception of the 2010 edition, they were known for being perennial favorites that always choked.

 

France hasn't been the same since Zidane retired 12 years ago. In all fairness, France was never considered a contender until after the won the WC in 98 followed by the European Championship in 2000.

 

Brazil is the only team that can stand chance against Germany.

 

My country, Costa Rica is getting annihilated by Serbia, Brazil and Switzerland. Damn!

In addition to the Outer Wilds preorder mentioned earlier, Mixer announcements for the Gears 4 Studio Lancer skin and Halo 5 Classic Helmet Req pack are going out.

 

The Halo 5 pack should appear in your list on the Waypoint web site.  (There's also daily E3 packs for H5 and HW2 for logging in this week.)

 

https://www.halowayp.../unopened-packs

The Gears 4 skin shows up in your order history and Ready to Install list, but does not show up in game.  Devs are investigating.

Ditto.

I always root for Mexico, this year we will make it out of the quarter finals. My backup team is Italy so I don't know what to do for this World Cup

Hmm. I watched e3 through Xbox on mixer. Said I was logged in. And I did not get the mix pot same as last mix pot that was offered.

I imagine I’m doing something wrong, maybe linking account wasn’t done right? Any suggestions I can look into?

I use my Xbox One X on an LG OLED65B7A and it still blows my mind every time I turn it on. The difference between the og One and the X was noticeable on my budget model Toshiba 4K tv, but the LG OLED really brings it to life. I don’t know what you are looking to pay, but I got my LG for $1399 out the door by combining a sale price and then using Citi price rewind (price matching a site I wasn’t sure I wasn’t sure I could trust to buy from)

If you're looking for an old style God of War/Dante's Inferno type game the first one is very good. Production is fantastic and the DLC is actually probably a must play. If I had any complaint about the first game it might be to long. I feel the same way about Last of Us on the Playstation so do what you will with that info.

 

The second one is good. I think it got bashed a lot at the time because it's a bit of the departure from the formula of the first. I finally played through it this winter and it wasn't nearly as bad as I feared.

NIce list! Noticed it says Gears Tactics is also coming to Xbox One? Thought that was PC only.

Counted 15 X1 exclusives and 12 PS4 exclusives (took out the 9 PSVR ones because that isn’t a fair comparison). Interesting.
