I think that's what the $1 conversion is at least partial for. To make sure everyone has a payment method attached to potentially get hit with the recurring fee, or less cynically to people can see the benefits and want to stick with it at full price. They're set to make a hell of a lot more money at $15 a month than the $60 a year that Gold brings in.

 

I'd guess another reason is so they can go to publishers and look at how many millions of GamePass subscribers we have. The numbers surely are going to shoot up a ton from the cheap conversion.

They could've also done regular Gold or Game Pass to help add to the combined increase, though I don't know if they still haven't fixed the issue from the beta where you can't add on to the combined sub after doing it.

If they do acquire from software I hope they remaster demon souls .That shit would look glorious in 1080p especially taking down that adjucator boss.

You guys are killing me. I don't have time to report every stupid reply, but kindly keep things relevant to the thread title. It's one thing to ask if a 4k TV is worth it without an X1X, but if you're going to ask about specific models and deals just make a separate thread.


Bummed about the Mixer rewards. Like others said, should have expected garbage if they aren't even gonna advertise it. Oh well, still free for watching something I was tuning into anyways. I don't care if Mixer or Twitch gets my ad support lol.

I was out of town for a couple days, but what were the new sales Monday? Nothing on the sale page on my console stands out to me as different...

Here is the Major's post for the DwG sale:

https://majornelson....light-sale-156/

Not much compared to the E3 sale, but at least there are :360: games on sale.
 

Please be Square-Enix, please be Square-Enix. :pray:

My TCL 6 Series is fantastic. You won't be disappointed. As if you needed more endorsements for the brand.

the telltale situation on the xbox marketplace is an anomaly. i wouldn't plan my future out of fear of it happening again.
 
a typical delisting scenario allows people who previously purchased the game to continue downloading it. if you paid for it, you can still access it.


I went through my 360 games recently and besides empty game servers there are only 4 games (out of 400+) that are completely unplayable after being delisted. They just sit on the start screen and give an "unable to connect to server" message when you press start.

Agreed re: 8k, similar to how 720p vs 1080p is hard to see a difference on anything under 40". I'm slightly concerned that I'll think 1080p looks bad on a 55" TV (or worse, 720 on some 360 games) but Fuck it. 

I do appreciate the recommendations, but yeah, $700 is probably out of budget. I'm also not sure if the 65" would fit on the TV stand we're using.

 

What a time to be alive, contemplating if 55" is a big enough TV. I remember getting a 32" CRT in college and thinking gaming would never get bigger than that. Star Fox 64 sure looked good on it, though.

Weekend before last we replaced a dying 50" Plasma with a 65" TCL 65R615 (Best Buy doesn't have voice remote).  My wife watches lots of older TV programs.  She did comment you can see more of the bad video quality these recordings have.  Not horrible say 12 feet back.  But much closer then that you can see all sorts jaggies and crap.  I also had to turn off something to do with overscan (forget the exact wording). Otherwise at the top of some 240/480 shows you would see a wavy line.  Also set the brightness lower and turned off motion smoothing.

 

Netflix, Prime and Youtube all look great.  HD stuff looks good too.  

 

I think it looks decent at 12+ feet even with low def stuff.  It seems to bother my wife more.  I might have to put the 65 in the basement with the game consoles.  The sacrifices I have to make....

Yeah I gameshare with my son and I just changed it to download on the Xbox I was currently logged into and it worked, I’m pretty sure that’s why some people were having problems because it was trying to download to the home Xbox rather then where they were logged into.

Plus I’m pretty sure you can only change your home Xbox once every 6 months or twice a year or some shit, I can’t remember cause I haven’t did it in years but you definitely don’t wanna do all that.

 

Okay good to know. I just didn't want to mess up gameshare since it's working but if you did it and it didn't change anything, I will go ahead and try it.

I don't know how to access those games even though I got a notification telling me I have them. I have also never heard of them.

I've heard recently that Earthworm Jim HD can't be re-downloaded on xbox 360 anymore but I haven't test that out yet.

While being bored at work, I decided to go through some things online and I found out that there are a handful of freebies for Max Payne 3 on the Xbox Store:

 

Compatibility Packs:

 

Multiplayer Compatibility Pack # 1 (for people that don't own Hostage Negotiation Pack)

Multiplayer Compatibility Pack # 2 (for people that don't own Painful Memories Pack)

Multiplayer Compatibility Pack # 3 (for people that don't own Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack)

 

Actual free content:

 

Disorganized Crime Pack

Gorilla Warfare Pack

 

Perfect for when you're unable to play the game on :xb1: because it isn't BC!

Unfortunately I’m fairly certain Demon Souls is a Sony-owned property. Hence the whole reason the series became Dark Souls and was multi-plat. So ironically, if MS acquires From Software, it might actually kill a DS remaster. But I could be wrong 😉

Oh and it could also kill Bloodborne 2 ... just saying

If you're asking about Surge, the drink, at BK then yes, it is real. And, it tastes much worse than you remember but retains that radioactive green color.

These can still be downloaded but rely on servers that have been shut down to run:
Doritos CRASH course 2
Ascend: Hand of Kul
Spartacus Legends
World Series of Poker: Full House Pro

Hadn't heard about earthworm Jim. I keep all my games (except the 4 listed) that aren't BC installed.

I kind of doubt From Software would accept being acquired in the current era. They've had nothing but hit after hit and no trouble funding projects. Sony actually owns the Demon Souls franchise, that's why they changed to Dark Souls when they went to Bandai Namco to publish on both platforms.

Don't know if it was mentioned but the OG Xbox disc of Battlefield 2 Modern Combat will be read as the 360 version and allow you to download it.  Just tried it and it worked.

i wonder if that works in the same way as san andreas...where a game has a different version on OG and 360. anyone try double agent yet?

Anyone know where the best prices for XBL Gold/Game Pass at? My current Gold expires in October, and I have 2 months of Game Pass left. So looking for 2 years and 6 months to max out Ultimate, but I don't really want to pay MSRP.

If anyone has Circle K gas stations near by there's a chance Surge is in the fountain drink machine. I believe Circle K is regional, and I've only seen Surge at one station south of Chicago.

2 years is more affordable buying digital from Costco. But you need a membership or friend/family with a membership to take advantage of the offer

You should be able to find it at any QuikTrip, if you have one of those in your area.

Atlus published Demon's Souls in North America but I think Sony owns the IP.

I think that ones going to give you separate games bc they were different on each system and they list them both on the bc list. 360 version went bc last year.

Man, what a long shot. FromSoft has had a lot of success on PC and xbox, and are clearly interested in multiplatform releases. Demon Souls and Bloodborne were huge successes for the company and maybe I can buy the idea that they would like to move away from exclusivity, but I dunno. I don't think they're unhappy with how the exclusivity deals with Sony have worked out. Maybe tho. They could look at the success of Bloodborne and just wonder what they could have made with a multiplatform release.

I see nothing coming out of Microsoft these days that they are at all against multi-platform releases. At this point I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see MS games on a Sony system. It seems they are open to literally putting them everywhere. 

 

Could be a deal where everyone benefits and they could still work something out with Sony on those IPs, remember for Sekiro they came to Activision for publishing, so I wouldn't totally dismiss them being on the market or looking for some other relationship with even an American company.

Haven't seen much new Xbox stuff worth mentioning today, but on the Nintendo side it's been confirmed the Breath of the Wild 2 will be in the same basic Hyrule as before. There is also a massive amount of backlash to the announcement that only Pokemon in the new games National Dex (basically this means the available roster in the new game) can be transferred into Sword and Shield, meaning that many Pokemon will be cut entirely. On top of that, they implied that they won't be patched in later, and that this is probably the philosophy going forward for the mainline Pokemon games.

 

I see nothing coming out of Microsoft these days that they are at all against multi-platform releases. At this point I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see MS games on a Sony system. It seems they are open to literally putting them everywhere. 

So far it seems like they're willing to put games on other platforms "where they fit". Minecraft Dungeons makes sense on all platforms because the other games in the franchise have been and the series is super popular still. Cuphead only came to Switch where it was highly requested, and I'd say 2D platformers still get the most life on Nintendo consoles. Super Lucky's Tale wasn't actually a Microsoft game.

 

Then we have games like The Outer Worlds and Psychonauts 2, which were prior contracts that were in place when these studios were bought. While they probably could pull a game from other platforms if it doesn't already have a publisher or with a big enough check, it would cause extremely negative reactions from the gaming community as a whole, much like we're seeing with the games on PC the Epic is scooping up.

 

If we were to see a huge game like Halo: Infinite or Gears 5 on the PS4 or 5, I think we'd be in a different ballpark, but for now I think it's mostly smaller indie games that are what can realistically make the jump, and we just have to see PC as part of the Xbox ecosystem now.
