Goddamit, I really want that Steelbook. I might be able to get away with buying 2 copies at Best Buy, selling 2 games and 1 steelbook and that will pay for itself.

I'm impressed Mad Max is going from 30fps last gen to all of a sudden 120fps on Series X.

Looks like I have some games to reinstall! Metro, Mad Max and Hollow Knight are great 120 FPS adds for me.

Other than in those Pro gamer/twitch environments like BF and other MP focused games, isn’t 60hz at 4K always going to look better than a lower resolution at 120hz? I mean, I get we’re working toward 4K at 120hz as the next standard, but until then, am I wrong?

Not all of them are lower res. The Metro and Mad Max games, for example, aren’t lower res. It’s just the ones with the check mark.

Nice^^. That’s an upgrade for sure. Are all the check marked ones lower res, even at 60hz? Ie Dishonored: DotO?

Not sure if there’s an option to do 60hz if it’s 120hz. Basically there’s just a switch for FPS boost on or off. No other options. But that would be a nice addition if you could do 4K / 60.

Anyway, there’s some great adds in there that I missed the first time at 60 FPS. Dragon Age Inquisition, Alien Isolation, AC Enzo Collection, Tomb Raider DE, The Evil Within 2….

This is awesome!

Fantastic list, lots of stuff that is in the backlog, and plenty of boosts to 60 which feels more needed than 60 to 120. Unexpected games too.

I do wonder about that Mad Max boost. Anyone without a 120hz display able to check if it still shows the boost option?

That 120fps is really going to make a difference in Untitled Goose Game.

Seriously though, this is awesome.

Only problem is a lot of the games I want to try with FPS boost are 30 GB+. Damn I need more and more space.

Yeah, they said during the first wave that if they had to lower resolution to hit the higher FPS then boost won't be enabled by default.

Digital Foundry found that some of those games seemed to run a game that would be X enhanced as the normal One S version to work.

Confession: I never finished Metro 2033. At 120 FPS (with no resolution drop), it’s time to dive back in.

Know what's weird? I have a physical copy of this and it says "only on Xbox 360".


At the time of release it was. Came to PS3 like a year later.

I saw on Windows Central that a perk for GPU subs is Spotify for 3 or 4 months. I’m in Canada and I don’t see it listed. US only? Anyone confirm?

 

Edit: Apparently it comes out tomorrow and it will be all regions (North America only?)

MS finally had the Series X in stock long enough last night for me to grab one for my GF, paid in full with funny money. Now hopefully she will stop bitching about always being player two with inferior hardware.  :-P

It’s a popular voice chat app for pc gaming. I used it a lot when I was looking for parties on Apex for PC. Pretty easy to create and follow groups on it. I don’t know why you would need it for console play unless it’s a cross play game.

I Know what a Discord is, but I still don't know why it's a big deal for console gamers confirmed.

It's a big deal because my 11 year old and his friends use it for multiple purposes including console gaming.  I don't understand exactly why, but when it's popular with such a wide audience and the up and coming generation, I know it's a big deal.  Kind of like Roblox.  I don't get it, but I know it's a big deal.

I know my friends that still play Destiny 2 on PC use it to group up, since you can create your own discord server and turn it on and your instantly voice chatting with your group.

It’s a neat app if your a very social gamer or like playing multiplayer things. It def has no purpose if your only into single player solo experiences.

I’ve used Discord. But I honestly could care less if it’s integrated with either console.

You going digital? Or gonna get that sweet Steel Book at Best Buy?


I’m actually doing both. I’m getting digital for Xbox as that’s what I have the newest hardware for, but I am getting the physical version on PS4 at Best Buy for the steel book, and because I have a problem. I played the original Mass Effect on 360 and then played part 2 on 360 doing a paragon path. When Mass Effect 2 later got announced for PS3 I jumped ship because I was primarily a PS3 gamer at the time. I decided to replay the game and went with a renegade path just to change it up. When Mass Effect 3 came out I bought it on both so I could finish both my runs. I then ended up buying the physical version of the trilogy on PS3 because I wanted a physical copy of Mass Effect 1 on PS3. At that point I had bought every Mass Effect game on console, so when Mass Effect 3 got a Wii U port I said why not. At this point I’m just keeping the ridiculousness alive. I’ll do a paragon run on Xbox, and when I later get a PS5 a year or two down the line I’ll go through it again doing renegade. Every time I read some stupid decision I see somebody post I think about this and tell myself, yep I’m stupid as Fuck sometimes too.

You kids with your loud music, and your Dan Fogleberg, your Zima, hula hoops and pac-man video games, don't you see? People today have attention spans that can only be measured in nanoseconds!

I'm probably on the wrong side of gaming history here, but I am definitely glad Microsoft was buying up more single player RPG studios lately instead of more social stuff like this. Microsoft seems to finally know how to handle their gaming acquisitions so let's stay on track there. We don't need them flushing money on another mixer type thing that they never really had a plan for.

So I heard WB is rumored to be phasing out physical releases, but is Disney as well? The end slide on the new MCU trailer says "available on DVD and Digital". Is blu-ray dead?
