Finally started far cry primal. Always put it off since getting it for my birthday two years ago shortly after release. Never really felt like I'd be into it without the guns but it's basically a reskinned far cry which doesn't surprise me I guess. Enjoying it so far, but hoping it doesn't burn me out if I decide to get far cry 5 on release. Just wish it wasn't pushed into march since I probably won't get it as a gift now and it's coming out the week I'm back from vacation.

Has anyone played the Bioshock Infinite's DLC on the Xbox One successfully? All of the DLC shows up on my ready to install list but they are all at 87mb each. I can't seem to find a way to download the actual DLC with the right size. With the season pass installed, going into the game and "downloading" the DLC just adds it to the ready to install list where it's listed at 87mb. It's driving me insane!

Lots of people whining about this but if it's good content, then... good?

 

This. I don't understand why there are so few trials and demos available. Considering it's so hard to rent games without Blockbuster or Hollywood Video around (Redbox carries next to nothing and finding a box near you with a game they do carry that you want can be a drive, and last time I used Gamefly I'd wait months for games at the top of my queue to be available to ship) it's just stupid. I'd buy more games if I knew for a fact I'd enjoy playing them, and the only to know for sure is to actually play it. So I spend very little on games.

Between Game Pass and free trial weekends, the infrastructure is clearly there for time-limited demos. A game like Monster Hunter could give a 10 hour trial and you'd barely scratch the surface.

Looking at getting a 55 inch 4k TV. Any recommendations? I know I have seen some posts here before.

Get the state of Rhode Island to put a referendum on the ballot for this fall - should the Xbox 360 version of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning be made backward compatible on the Xbox One gaming system?

That would be great, but never gonna happen.

It would not make enough rich people that much richer. So, not gonna happen.

My question would be, is this content included with the season pass or is it the royal edition??? I currently have a disc copy of FF15, but I could trade it in for about half the cost of the digital premium edition on xbox live right now.

If you are buying on a budget TCL P605/607, can't beat it for the price.

I am fine with leaving it in my back log until all the episodes come out and i can make one complete run through the game. I do wonder if this is going to fall under the season pass, a new season pass, or require individual purchases.

It's not part of the Royal Edition or the season pass. Both are clear that they include the first initially planned DLC episodes for each respective party member, along with the MP update, etc. This is more like a second season of DLC, which wasn't originally part of the planned content. 

 

Sounds like it's going to address events before the main game, or events which occur

Spoiler

 

Personally, I'm totally fine with it. The Royal Edition is more like the complete game which ideally should have been released at launch, especially with character swapping since it apparently adds a lot more dynamics to combat, and this new content being planned is like a stretch goal. Mostly, I'm just happy to see a single player game get so much support.

My research says this, but I don't actually have one yet.  Only caveat is that new models release this spring and the 6 series (replaces P series to avoid confusion with Vizio's P series) was the darling of CES with fifteen or so more local dimming zones and some other improvements while it apparently will be priced the same as last year's P series.  Also, it will have a 65 inch version.  If you can wait until a little bit (no release date yet) you may get a little more bang for your buck.  I have a birthday 10% off regular price item code a Best Buy I was going to use on a P series, but I think I'm going to hold off for the 6 series.  Now, what to use the 10% off code on?  Lots of exclusions including consoles and it negates GCU...

I purchased the 605 this past September once the 65” was scraped. If I can build up enough credit I might get the 65” 6 series as a 65” is really what I wanted.

The picture is amazing on the 605 though. I watched Planet Earth 2 4k blu and it’s probably the best visual I’ve ever seen on a screen. I’m sure it would look even better on a more well reviewed expensive tv but for the price of the 605 it can’t be beat.

I agree though, if the 6 series is as well reviewed when it comes out at around the same price points you should wait.

No but if you scroll to the bottom there should be a “Use Mobile Version” that should fix it. Maybe you accidentally clicked “Switch to Full Version”?

Does Microsoft ever give generic discount coupons for Xbox Live (i.e. 20% off your order, like Sony does for the PlaystationStore)?  Got a cheap copy of FarCry Primal and thinking I'd like to pick up the DLC someday, but would hate to pay more for that than I did for the game!

Thanks everyone for the recommendation. I ended up getting an LG 55uj6540 because of the price and it had all the inputs I was looking for. So far it looks pretty good.
