Shoot, I don't see any 360 games

I only scan XB1 games, so lists of original Xbox and 360 games most often won't appear within the thread.

You will see the :360: / :xbox: on StoreParser, if it works for you:

So anyone know if there is :360: love?

I love that you quoted the entire super long post to say that. Instead of editing it to not take up a whole page!

Whoops!
I'm an idiot, all I did was hit reply.

Sorry about that.

Yep, already looked through it.

I enjoy grabbing the odd 360 game now and then, seem to play them more on my XB1 than XB1 games.

So many games are a few dollars more than their last sale, like they are trying to piss us off lol.

LEGO Superheroes 2 $11.99, last sale was 10 bucks
Prototype bundle for $20, normally on sale for $16.50

Pretty much nothing jumping out at me. Hopefully some decent BC sales can save it. It doesn't look like those are live on Store Parser for me.

Soul Calibur 6 is tempting at twenty dollars. I'd consider Dragonball FighterZ for fifteen, but I haven't been interested in that series since my twenties!

 

I was hoping for a deeper price cut on the Sega Genesis collection. I heard bad things about the emulation and I'm not sure it's improved at all since it was released. People seem happy enough with the Switch version, though.

A huge list of games, and the only two of interest are Rayman Legends and Ryse: Legendary Edition. It's cool though, got plenty in the backlog plus GP and Access to keep me busy.

 

Thanks for the hard work Bloomy!

Need to look through the list again for possible things I might convert from disc to digital. GameStop is doing an extra 50% right now.

I am going to have to fire up Just Cause 3 but JC4 seems like a graphics downgrade even on the X1. The load times are better though.

Remedy's Control has joined the likes of Anthem and several Ubisoft titles that require a chart to keep track of all the pre and post-release content.

 

In a nutshell, the Digital Deluxe Edition will only be available on PS4, some physical goodies will also be only for PS4 and last, but not least, both expansions will launch on Xbox (and presumably PC as well) some time after it does on, you guessed it, PS4.

All this console exclusive content is bullshit. And WTF with Xbox being home to the other Remedy games?

This has not been earned in the slightest. Honestly with 505 publishing this game I have some reservations. They are kind of B league.

Yea, I think MS must be screwing the pooch with the terms of it's exclusive deals. Why do so many developers go running to PS immediately after completing exclusive deals with MS?

Great, thanks to Sony, 505 Games, and Remedy. Go Fuck yourselves.

 

It is extremely shitty for them to try and obfuscate that PS4 is getting exclusive stuff by making two separate charts. And a platform exclusive mission for a single player game? Amazing.

Seems like the same kind of deal with Destiny stuff, wonder how long of a delay the expansions are going to get. Are they talking a month or a year? I probably wasn't picking this one up anyway, I found Quantum Break kind of neat to look at and very high production values but just so repetitive after a bit with a lack of enemy variety, now if it was an actual Alan Wake sequel...

Exclusive content beyond maybe costumes is total trash. It was a bad precedent set last gen and it just gets more annoying as time goes on. As far as developers that were formerly exclusive, with Xbox it's very clear that the smaller userbase affects sales pretty strongly. (See Ryse, Sunset Overdrive.) If you're doing an exclusive game it makes much more business sense to do so with Sony than MS currently, and I imagine with all the studio acquistions, money for this kind of thing isn't as much of a priority unless they think it's a homerun.

 

Even before this we can probably still assume this mind set is being used, to focus on their own IP rather they paying to fund exclusives.

 

As for those that we're one time console exclusive and are going multiplatform, it makes much more business sense unless you are getting an insane amount of money paid by Sony/MS/Nintendo/Epic to go exclusive. This is not just a phenomenon with Xbox developers, as Sony had both Quantic Dream (Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain) and SuperMassive (Until Dawn) jump ship in the past year.

What developers? You realize the publishers are the ones making these deals, right?

While I think it is fair to place primary focus on the publishers as they do have the power, independent studios like Remedy or Bungie generally make the choice as to which publisher they're willing to work with. In this case they are at least partially to blame for "making a deal with the devil".

Control will likely sell even worse than quantum break, so this isn't really a big deal. Might be the final nail in Remedys coffin.

I don't know, I feel like Control does have at least a bit of hype around it. Quantum Break was mostly met with dismay thanks to the TV integration stuff. I don't think Remedy's games will ever be huge sellers but it'd be hard for it sell worse than QB.
