^^ Sweet. It’s out of stock now but you can still order one and it will just ship when it’s back in stock. That would double one of my drive slots. More space for my backlog!

Thanks for the heads up!

Any experience with that HDD? Lots of bad reviews saying it fails in under a year

So have most of my romantic relationships. Yet I soldier on in a quest to find love.

I bought a refurb on Amazon for this for $40 that I use with the McAfee Security Suite on my work laptop. It's worked flawlessly for 8 months of being encrypted and decrypted every day.

 

You could always get a bad drive in whatever brand you buy, but my WD drives have lasted forever without any issues. I still have a 640GB from 2007 that I used for music, then for movies, and now as backup for my 360.

Lol 4tb is a waste if you’re a real game. Fills up extremely fast with games and updates


How do I know if I'm a real game? Will a talking insect help me?

If you bleed red then yeah you a real game but if it's blue then you are a synth.

According to SD, it looks like the 10TB was $80 and 8TB was $105. Both out of stock now though.

When you looked in the mirror, did you look like this?

If not, then you are not a real game.

I already owned Valentino Rossi so I played it for josekortez.

Quick impressions after about 30 mins and one race.
The race I did wasn't that great, I thought the controls were not that tight and responsive. I'm sure games like Ride do motorcycle racing better.

$5 is probably the right price point and I think at a glance career mode could have some depth if you're willing to put the time in.

PS just to contribute on the hard drive talk.

The only drives I trust are Western Digital after having a Seagate fail on me a few years ago. Pro tip: I have a USB hub hooked up to my Xbox One and it accepts having 3 external drives attached to it. Maximum of 16 TB external storage and that's what I got.

I've had that 4 tb drive for about 2 years and used on all 3 models of the one. Still works like a champ for me.

Thanks for taking one for the team, even13flow!  Still haven't decided how to spend my $10 in X-bucks.  I spent an hour playing Need for Speed Payback last night which was lots of fun.  Wondering if the Rossi/Sebastien combo will be the best use of the funds.

Same here. Also have one for one of my PS4s and have never had any issues whatsoever.

Well until they make bigger portables that’s what we got, I’m sure some people are like me and won’t even look at an outlet powered one anymore.

My first external for my X1 was a outlet powered one. Never again. The drive was fine but the ac adapter went nuts. What a pain

Anyone here have experience fixing the issue where you can’t download your 360 profile to an Xbox One? I’m trying to launch Braid on a new X - I get the prompt to download my profile, I do that but it says it can’t connect to Xbox Live even though I am connected to the internet with no issues.

Edit - NAT test now says it can’t get a Teredo IP address...
What’s the fix?

Shit-tier E3 "leaks" starting up. Some NeoGAF post getting a bit of steam with a guy who has been to a few E3s posting his take based on what he's heard about Xbox's showing. Probably nothing but it's something to discuss I guess. I'm trimming all the fat, NeoGAF/ResetERA posters tend to have a hard time getting to the point even worse than us.

 

Really, I think this is just a guy talking out of his ass. Literally everything he has listed under confirmed showings is already known about with at least official announcements except for Bleeding Edge (known through trademark), and Playground Games' game (rumored over a year). Then he thinks we'll get details on a new Forza, which we just discussed and saw that development has only recently started.

 

Everything in the below are his words except a couple of red comments from me, shorted to actual information only for the most part. Spoilered for length.

I’m having the same problem. I initially count connect to Xbox Live while playing The Darkness 2. Tried a hard reboot. Then I couldn’t launch The game. I tried clearing the local Xbox 360 storage and now it prompts me to download my profile, but then I get the message that I can’t. Im wondering if it’s a Live issue.

5tb portables exist now, though there aren't very many on the market yet. I've only seen one personally without actively searching. I have an 8tb seagate hub for each console, and a 4tb portable for games we don't currently have a license for (Game Pass, Free Play Days, Redbox rentals) so I don't clog my library with games I can't actually play. Our consoles don't move, so we don't care about HDD portability.

So the statement of there being a game announced as "next gen only" has me scratching my head. I don't expect MS to have every game from here to eternity as compatible with all their systems but to announce a game for the next system only without showing off that system seems weird? I just doubt after all the time they have put into creating this "play anywhere, BC ecosystem" that the first thing they do when announcing the next system is to say hey these are all the game you can't play on your old systems.

 

They created this problem years ago and eventually it will happen but it seems an odd choice to lead with showing how your old system is going to be obsolete. Of course they do need a reason to give us why we should buy the new system but I thought they would lead with better graphics and more framerates and not exclusive games to only that console.

Was hoping they’d have an 8tb or 10tb by now.

I have 3 x1s so not having to worry about wall plugs is worth it to me plus I download all my movies so having the convenience of taking the hd room to room is a necessity.

They'll get slaughtered if the new machine doesn't have a new name. And you can't keep the old name on the box.
