I like the games I can earn achievements from playing it on the laptop

 

getting the easy achievements I need for rewards pointing and clicking on old man's journey in the warm house while I'm checking emails and such beats the hell out of freezing my ass in the man cave in the garage trying to figure out which achievement I can get quickest before losing feeling in my button pushers

My Xbox was going crazy last night. Just converted to GPU and was playing Crackdown 3 last night. The Netflix app kept starting on its own while I was playing the game multiple times. Finally just deleted.

I have seen countless posts on other forums from people that literally have one system and one game. Well maybe more if they keep the ones from previous years. And that's a Playstation and The Show. I don't think a lot of people realize the passion baseball fans have for the sport, and how this game appeals to those that may be non-traditional video gamers. I guarantee Sony is getting a massive payday for this, as they simply will not sell as many PS5s with this news.

But are these "The Show Only" likely to switch consoles? Or are implying that there are a significant number of Xbox/Nintendo households that *additionally* get a Playstation just for the Show?

 

 Now if NBA Live could release a game 2 years in a row life would be good.

Hey, hey, in fairness, EA got Live out two years in a row: NBA Live 18 (2017) and NBA Live 19 (2018). They just didnt get to three years. And while I didnt play Live 19, NBA Live 18 on PS4 was actually pretty good.

If someone is only buying a PS4 and the Show, Sony isn’t making much money off them. The ones you would want to get to move over are the ones buying all the sports games.

Year kind of sucks, but year from now might have an idea what the plan is for this thing "overall". Going to be interesting to do a multi-release remake right when the hardware generations are starting to switch over. 

I preordered on PS4 when the discounts were available, but S-E has had a DLC model this whole generation (KH, FFXV, World of FF, Nier 2) with updated releases. The Xbox release may be a complete release, and may also get enhancements from next gen since it won't launch til after Scarlet.

Doesn't the Show have an online mode?  They would get console purchase, plus annual Show purchase, plus annual PS+ sub.  That's quite lucrative off of a single customer.

Someone was trying to cast to your Xbox. It's annoying.

The only surprise here is that it's for a full year. 

Great, now I'll end up buying it on Black Friday 2020 for $15 on the PS4 and again in 2021 on XBox One X and in 2022 again on the XBox Two. THANKS OBAMA!

I'm sure that for every admitted gamer that claims to only have a PS4 and The Show, there are probably at least 5 that started off with just The Show that ended up buying more games. And like someone already mentioned, PS+ is required to play online which most of them do so there's that.

For some reason my Xbox stopped showing up on my gamepass app 3 days ago after I installed a game.

It seems the hype is over now and everyone is now realizing it's mostly mediocre.

I played it already on Switch and it's an ok and cute game that has the feel of a simple children's storybook about a naughty goose. Definitely not worth the level of hype it had though. The gameplay boils down to being a simple puzzle game and (later on) a very simple stealth game. I thought there would be more fun to be had playing as a goose and screwing with people, but there's no wacky emergent gameplay here. You can only mess with people in the preset ways the developers allow for. It's worth a download on Game Pass at least, though.

Some rumored specs for next year's Xboxen have surfaced, putting the low-end model (Lockhart) at 4 teraflops, and the high-end (Anaconda) at 12 teraflops.  A single teraflop spec doesn't tell the whole story, but for context, here's where these fall into the current console lineup:

 

Xbox One S: 1.4 TF

PS4 Slim: 1.8 TF

Lockhart: 4 TF

PS4 Pro: 4.2 TF

Xbox One X: 6 TF

Anaconda: 12 TF

 

Sounds pretty awesome if the low-end horsepower is near a PS4 Pro and the high-end is double the X1X.

If that's true, they'd be shooting themselves in the foot if they develop games to work on both Lockhart specs and Anaconda specs and ignore the X. Unless the Lockhart is going to be the streaming box and it'll play BC games better than the One but not as well as the X.

Keep in mind that teraflops aren't everything.  The new consoles are also said to include 16GB of RAM and high-speed NVMe SSD storage.  If games are coded to rely on those capabilities then they aren't going to work on an X1X regardless of the CPU/GPU horsepower.

 

I can certainly imagine a game that would work on an X1X and the Scarlett consoles but not the X1S.  Whether or not Microsoft will allow that kind of game to be released because of issues with consumer branding confusion remains to be seen.

I'll be shocked if the low-end model has less horsepower than the X1X. Seems contrary to the point?

Yes, those look like numbers...

That's a bet I'll take.  Keep in mind that this model is targeted at X1S owners.  It's a large step up from there in horsepower, not to mention the increased memory, high-speed storage, and whatever new rendering features come in the silicon.  It will be able to advertise 4K gaming, though I'm sure that will be upconverted from a lower native resoution, just like the PS4 Pro and X1X now.  By not going hog-wild on the specs, MS can keep the price point down to a reasonable level and still deliver a much better experience than the X1S can.  Meanwhile the tech fiends like me can pay more and get something that might well be able to run games in native 4K at 60 FPS.

Netflix is going crazy ex-gf since they're losing all of their content, lol. First Disney/Marvel, and soon NBC Universal. They better up their game with that original content or they might actually be in trouble for once.

Don’t think they have much to worry about with original content. Four of its movies are nominated for best picture between drama and comedy at the Golden Globes.

I honestly only watch original content on Netflix.

Meanwhile, I’m regretting prepaying for Disney+ for three years. Not enough original content I’m interested in.
