It definitely does, they did a beta earlier this year I heard good things but didn't get a chance to try it myself

For me personally it was due to buying it through a charity. I think it was a Call of Duty sponsored Wounded Warrior thing. It was discounted a little and for charity so I bought it to stack on my sub that I’d already gotten for cheap by buying “any cell phone” at BB. The charity sent out expired codes, but Best Buy discovered the issue and made them redeemable a couple weeks later. For the inconvenience of some people not being able to redeem the code right away, we were all sent another code to redeem or give away. Spent $15 on a prepaid flip phone to get a 2 year sub and $25 to charity to get 2x 2 year subs. Then sold the flip phone on eBay for $30. Expires this December :(

Same here, hopefully will be able to make some use for launch.

 

I guess my question would be why save 50 bucks on a gamble? Gamestop has bundles right now that include a game and the system brand new for 300. That would be my preference, as there's zero question that the system works as intended, you get a warranty, a new controller that doesn't have someone else's Cheetos dust caked on, etc. All that plus a game seems worth the 50 bucks to me...

Buy new. Scorpios anecdotally aren't as good. I know I would go new if getting a machine now, $300 is good, better if you can get spacebuck deals.

Started Metro Exodus tonight. I will finish it since I played the other two games but this series just does not do it for me. I am hoping the more open world sections will be better but the opening sequence is just meh for me.

I think the game gets better as it goes, honestly. There is some wtf moments in this one for sure. I think I'm in the last big Far Cry like open world area, according to the True Achievements walkthrough, Took me 2 nights of FU to beat this boss I was fighting though. More I'm bad at handling a controller than game's fault.

Hated the game. It felt wayyy more janky than the first two, and after playing it I decided any game that throws large groups of enemies at you and lets you run out of bullets is terrible

Total noob question here, so I’ll put it in spoilers so as to not disturb the regulars.

Spoiler

Keep in mind that we will have a brand-new console generation within 6 months that has backward-compatibility, so this really isn't the best time to buy.  If you can, you are likely better off waiting for the new models.

It's funny but accurate lol. Well done. Tried Spider-Man again and still hate it. I love Killzone so that tells you how much you should trust my opinions. Lol

As to that issue, just make sure you're looting dead bodies and running the 3 different gun ammo types. Gun system is a bit clunky.

Played Metal Slug X before it left Game Pass and man, I legit don't know how people can speed run that game without dying. Still great and I have to wonder playing it on my One X, has any version of that game ever run without slowdown when it get's hella chaotic on screen?

That FH4 Update 23 bloat was fun. I popped 5 achievements last night, raised by TA ratio from 1.55 to over 2.0. Went from 152k TA score to 195k. It was fun while it lasted.

That's arcade perfect, was even slow down there

Just started this. Seems to be a 1:1 match of the original Xbox version I played years ago. Says 4k but even 4k ps2 games don't look amazing lol. Only issue I noticed was some odd stutter when traversing outside kind of odd.

Pretty stoked, sold my Taco Bell Xbox for $325 and that paid for a Cyberpunk bundle. Excited to play Cyberpunk 2077, hoping it gets an update for Series X fast as I am picking one of those up as well.

I let the video on the product page run before I started the download and I thought, "Man, this looks a little low effort...," but that game wasn't really about the graphics anyway.

Hoping for mass effect remaster to be announced then release shortly after so I can use my vacation to begin my insane playthrough in glorious 4k or 1080p.

They've already stated it's getting a Series X update but sounds like maybe not right at launch of the system

That would be crazy for sure, and having a bit of a debate in other channels. Do they include the punching the reporter stuff or not? It's pretty minor but wonder if it would be taken out now. 

 

 

 

late edit: Cyberpunk just got delayed to Thanksgiving, not a surprise but damn it

So if they were to correct the slow down it'll be too perfect and thus only logical conclusion when something like that happens...

Yeah my new conspiracy is now that Cyberpunk will launch with the Xbox Series X update on day 1 of the console release day, November 19th.

You can use microsoft money for preorders, right?
I want to trade all my points while there's a hotdeal and preorder Cyberpunk 2077.


Well now you've got until November lol.

I still have my $50 Amazon preorder, not sure if I'm going to keep it so I guess I have until November to decide now. Interested in the game but I don't necessarily need it on day one. Especially given how consistently cheap The Witcher 3 complete edition is.

Same here. If they do that “and its out today” thing I would be out 60 bucks today, especially if they release a switch version.

Sea of Thieves has two free emotes you can claim in the Pirate Emporium. The Shovel Skills emote and then the Cannonball Hide emote which you can find in the Hide & Peek bundle.

I'm trying my hardest to not get my hopes up for a Mass Effect trilogy remaster. It's in my top 3 fav franchises that released during the 360 era(Gears of War and Dead Space are the other two). Bracing for nothing but sports sports sports announcements from EA

The Killzone game on Vita was great. It had serious Goldeneye vibes with the optional stealth.
