And I will use your reminder. I thought it was a troll, but I think it's just dense.

physical Gears 5 is..  two $5's on amz now.  That seemed quick.

You think Gears dropped fast? Bleeding Edge is $5 at Best Buy. Wonder what the population is in that game, even with Game Pass.

I mean this is Steam so it's paying customers, not Game Pass on Windows or the Xbox One, but it's pretty yikes for that game

Forza Street is offering everyone 250 Gold. Its quite the grind to get the achievements. I figure I should unlock everything in the next month or so.

To be fair most online games player base on PC die after like a month. Bleeding Edge is actually a really fun game but still a little bit light on content right now. Look at Seat of Thieves. It's one of the top played games on Steam with 41k concurrent players after adding  content to that game for the last 2 years. I'm really hoping that Bleeding Edge is able to do the same thing. Played the shit out of the game on console and never had any problems finding games.

How long have you been playing?  I started last month when there was that Rewards quest, haven't spent any real money.  Usually play 2-3 times a day when the energy refills.  Only achievements I have left are beating episodes 2 and 3 and collection level 20.  Am currently 1/3 of the way through level 19.  I'm at the end of the first event of episode 2 and can still auto-race through at least one path of an event to beat it, but am not sure how long that will last.  Haven't checked on opponent PIs for later story events, but have been focusing on building up my cars because I'm sure I'll hit a couple walls eventually - won't have cars with a high enough PI to auto-race, then cars not built up enough to beat the AI racing myself.

 

My highest PI car is a 2017 Ford GT (Super / Modern) at 527.  Next is a 1970 Corvette at 518 (Sports / Classic).  I have a Modern / Muscle at 512, then a few others around 500.  I've been trying to build up cars to cover the class (Super / Sports / Street / Muscle) x type (Modern / Classic / Retro) permutations to auto-race as much as possible.  I can auto-race the daily generic exhaust upgrade event and most of the daily generic intake events.  The PI for the generic brake events still seem a bit high.  For the class upgrade events, I can do most of the exhaust, but intake and brake are generally too high.

I feel like this has come up before, but what is up with the automatic updates on XB1? Is it simply just broken? If I go to my queue and see the last few things that have updated, it's clearly working to some degree. But then I go to the actual updates section and there will be like 30 games needing an update. Obviously I have all the right boxes checked so is that just the way it is or do some of you have better success?

I have the same issue. Don't know if it's because I'm in the alpha insider ring.

I have the same problem. I quit the preview program since there aren’t any huge benefits. The only reason I can think is because I game share with my buddy and my home Xbox is set to his

EA E3 Play is tomorrow. I Look forward to any kinda news to distract me from real news, even though in the end we're probably going to be "lololol EA sucks", but at least we'll do it united as a country!

I'm hoping they reveal Mass Effect Remaster Trilogy. It would be great to see something from Dragon Age 4, though I'm not expecting more than a quick teaser, if anything at all. Maybe a check-in on the state of Anthem.

 

Not super interested in the Star Wars game if it's really just a flight sim.

what’s the difference is between the regular Xbox One X and the Project Scorpio version?

the 1x is the current name for scorpio - no hardware difference.  Some consoles from the intial wave came with that name.  Unless you're a collector, there's no real difference to pay more for one.  in fact, I would personally avoid one since it means console age/use.  $300 new has been the sale price lately, but it's probably a bad time to buy as domestic demand has sharply reduced the supply of consoles.  You may find it difficult to get one without paying a premium.  And then there's Series X in 5 months.

Also be aware that most users opt to just add external storage drive via usb.  Unlike the Sony counterpart, MS does not make it easy for the internal drive to be replaced.

The real surprise is that Bleeding Edge had a retail / physical release, I assumed it was digital only.

Welcome to the thread! This is place to be if you are getting into XBox or looking for deals. You'll find out that most people here are friendly and don't mind answering questions or pointing you in the right direction. Just be respectful and thoughtful and you'll be fine!

Speaking of questions, do all gamertags have the 4 digit number after them or is that just new tags? My preferred online handle finally came open and I'd love to claim it but it's trying to attach the 4 digit number to it even though it's showing as totally available.

I believe it's just the new tags only. I recently starting seeing the numbers popping up for people on my friends list who had recently changed their gt. This is just from my personal experience though, I haven't read anything official about it.

There could be something to this. I've never been in the preview program because I've only ever heard people complain, but I gameshare with my son. Everything has always been purchased under my gamertag and there's only a handful of games installed on his XB1 so I wonder what determines if it updates or not. Still seems random though because the ones updating vs not updating are all installed on mine where most are not on his. Unless using externals is another potential factor.

Well in that case I’m guilty as well because I have 3 external drives hooked up through a USB hub. I have to hard reset every few days to get all the drives to pick up all the installed games

No, this is not on all new tags. I assumed it was duplicate names, but I don't know what the exact reason is.  I know my son wanted to change his and painstakingly went through several name options before he found one that didn't have numbers hashtagged at the end.  I assumed that this was because he's 10 and thought he was being creative when he's the millionth person to come up with the same name, but maybe it was something else.  Anyway, he did get a few that worked without having any numbers added.

I started playing when it launched. I have not paid a cent and don't plan too. My Ford GT is 541. My other cars are in the 480s again just so I can compete in the other categories. I suspect I will need to get them much higher especially when competing in Episode 3. I get so many duplicates when I card to win a free car.  I am doing the exact same thing you mention about auto race (I got the 500 races achievement) plus the upgrade events too. Oh I try to make sure I get the daily challenges each day.

the gamertag system was changed a while back, it's more like Discord now. Multiple people can have the "same" name but it adds the numbers at the end. If you actually pick a unique gamertag you can have it without numbers, but if it's giving you the numbers then someone already has the original one.
