2 was better than 3 anyway so I'm actually not really one of those, it could only go wrong

EA reveal all loot boxes\microtransactions to be "pure cosmetic" across all games. Every game announced shows the cool stats attached to the gear you can get from enemies\loot boxes\etc.

That gif really makes me want some frogurt.

 

Super Off-Topic (so move along if you don't want to see it), but New Pokemon Snap is FINALLY a thing!  That was (and still is) my favorite spin-off game, so I'm super stoked to take some new-gen pics of me throwing apples at a Pikachu and pissing it off.

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.


Yeah. I've read that before so I understand at least that much. But the multiple sites that let you check gamertags says the one I want isn't in use. When I go to change mine, it adds the numbers to it which is frustrating. I was wondering if the new system was causing it but I guess not if WNYX595AM's experience disproves it.

Some interesting rumors. $400/$200 price points seem a bit low to me but I could see maybe $450/$300. I guess it depends how Lockhart compares to Xbox One X in terms of power. I know Amazon accidentally had a page up showing the PS5 at 499 and 399 Euros for the disc and digital only version.

The main thing I’m hoping is that July press conference truly is filled with Mic drops. I think Microsoft is smart to realize Sony is not it’s only competition, it seems like after losing in the cell phone business they are willing to pump more money into industries that could really take off for them.

It will be good if they just let the Series X be one sku instead of needing 2 like Sony. Better to eat the cost of the drive for people who will only ever download games then to cause customer confusion and the need for extra shelf space in stores to display both. Plus the can just match their price to whatever Sony wants for the digital PS5. They also won't need an asterisk explaining that BC only works with games you owned digitally from the OG/360 era.

They traffic more in PC hardware news and rumors. Regarding their rumors, sometimes on point, sometimes off the mark. But they've been at it a while and have been seen getting some things right. Grain of salt as usual, of course.

Of course don’t take any of that as news, they even posted it as Rumor in the headline :) it’s just a guy on a forum that has leaked stuff before claiming to know some stuff and they quote him from his forum posts.

I just think it’s interesting to speculate leading up to the conference. I’m curious what mic drop style announcements they could have... it seems like so many of the studios they acquired are still so new they probably don’t have any big game drops coming. A big mic drop would be if they bought WBGames and Batman is now exclusive to Xbox and Windows and they have a Batman game coming in the launch window.

We know we should get Forza this year, Halo Infinite, some type of Fable announcement I would think... not sure what else AAA wise they would have to drop.

Read the article and hope the mic drop bit actually hapoens. I am an xbox fanboy through and through but we need some new games. The biggest games we have generally speaking are tired franchises like Gears Forza Halo.

But we do have BC as the biggest feather in our cap and i cant wait to see what they do!

Finally cancelled my Amazon Cyberpunk pre-order I placed right before they cut off the 20% Prime deal. Still have my Best Buy GCU 20% for a few more months, plus they give you a steelbook and a $10 credit. Farewell, old friend. You only had 3 months to go.

New achievements are popping in FH4 (there was a patch to download earlier today).  Each worth multiple K in TA score, with the 200 cars photographed over 24k.  Game was pushed over 100k until the over night ratio balance occurs.

 

The one for buying a house is glitched for many people, including me.

Kind of crazy that we are getting 3 new skateboard games that are not Skate 4. Everyone jumping on EA's procrastination. I am really excited about that Tony Hawk Remaster though

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.

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 :(

My ratio jumped an entire 0.1 of a point just getting 3 of these achievements. The crash back will come tomorrow.

1 Month EA Access is currently $0.99 (only new customers)! Using this you get 10% discount on Madden 21 or STAR WARS: Squadrons pre-orders...
Even cheaper in other countries  :) (from ~ $40).

You can check prices on xbox-now.com

Mine went from ~1.8 up to 2.2 with 3 of them.  Could've gotten some more, but I'll save them for next week's Rewards Quests.

 

They've acknowledge the problem with the home achievement, as well as the update messing up festival event tracking.

Also, the Ford Focus preorder car is available in the Forzathon shop for 100 points until the season ends in 6 hours.

I have a stupid question.

If i want to use my Microsoft points towards the series x, what exactly do I have to do?

Do I have to pre-order it through the Microsoft Store? Do I have to redeem my points before I pre-order it, or do I get charged when I go in person to pick the system up?

I just want to make sure I'm ready lol

I got my launch Xbox One X with Xbox credit. So I'm thinking you need to convert your points into Xbox credit. Xbox credit can be used to purchase anything at the Microsoft.com store. Last launch I pre-ordered on microsoft.com and used Xbox credit to pay through there.

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

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...
