Is Xbox.com being funky for anyone else right now or just me? It's saying sign on server has detected too many attempts but I've not been trying to sign in and also have 2fa on and haven't gotten any notices

 

 

I'm having the same problem.

 

 

It's also telling me that I made too many failed attempts to log in. I hope that they weren't hacked. I would suggest that everybody check their bank accounts just in case you kept your card info on your console.

Ahhh, I'm just going to wait it out for a bit and see if it fixes itself before I clear cookies and all that stuff.

EDIT : if you pay attention to the URL when you load up an xbox link you can see it auto redirecting over and over possibly logging in back and forth?

You won't get account banned for grabbing free things, no this isn't Oman. Like others have said it was already GwG anyway.

Was this in an email, or an Xbox message?

It was an xbox message.

I just tried to login to the xbox.com store, and kept getting the failed to login message.. Went directly to Microsoft.com and logged in fine. 

Logging into my xbox account on Microsoft's website, and then going to xbox.com normally would keep me logged in, not this time.

Looks like Xbox.com is having issues.

I like that they have begun labeling the games I have installed as “gold” and “game pass”. Now I just wish they would mark games as “expired” or something similar when they leave game pass.

Gotcha, hmmm... I should also note that I'm using the Chrome browser when the URL thing happens.

Spoiler

You may change your mind if you start seeing cosmetics in the Atom Shop you like. There are still a lot of challenges you can complete at any time to earn Atoms, but you won't have any daily or weekly challenges to complete to earn atoms anymore. they now award SCORE points, giving us yet another way to grind. I've only made it to rank 12 so far. Boy did they screw up the interface for the Ammo Converter you get at rank 5. PITA to use.

 

Ah, I see. I honestly don't even remember what it was like in previous games, I've been playing 76 so long. Haven't played an earlier Fallout game since its release.

 

Unfortunately I don't see them fixing that bug anytime soon. it's been there for 2.5 moths now, and it isn't even the worst bug with quest giving NPC's.

Get ready for $70 to be the new retail price for next gen games:

I'll be buying alot less games now, at least at launch.

 

2k is one of the series that shouldn't even be $60 with it's ads and microtransactions. I hope the fanbase turns on it and just refuses to pay $70.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course that is just a pipe dream. The Mamba Forever edition will sell out and everyone will buy $100 in VC at launch with the game.

One thing is for sure, Game Pass and GameFly are going to be more important than ever. I don’t pay retail now and often wait for $20, it’s going to take much longer to hit that price now.

I usually break at the first sale of a game but damn now that's probably gonna be $60 at best.

70 dollars is a hard sell for a lot of games.  I know games haven't gone up in price since the 360 launch and inflation is a thing but sadly my pay hasn't gone up 10 dollars in an hour in that time either.

I wonder if it’ll be $70 physical and $60 digital. Either way, who ever pays full price for a game? Even Nintendo games are $49.99 physical at Walmart usually.

Not much will change for me if prices are raised to $69.99. I rarely buy a non-Nintendo 1st party game unless it's at least 50% off and I assume Switch games will remain $59.99.

 

Also Game Pass Ultimate and MS Rewards FTW.

Sadly inflation isn't a thing for salaries. Plus the economy is in a free fall.

I think I remember reading an article that back in the snes days carts were priced $69.99 due to shortage of micro chips.Since we are now on disc format the cost of games should not rise since its disc unless they are pressing them on 100+gb blus.

The only way to get a "free upgrade" is to buy the $99 Mamba Forever Edition PS4/X1 version.

Some games will sell with a $70 MSRP just as well (Call of Duty) but in general that will mean fewer copies sold. Imagine paying $70 for Fallout 76 or Resident Evil 3 (which I really enjoyed but was not a $60 game).

If you need a $10/hr raise to pay for a raise in video game prices then you have problems way bigger than video games going up in price. A 10 cent an hour increase would get you an extra $200 a year (assuming 40h/wk) which would easily pay for the $10 difference on the handful of games that are worth buying at launch each year.

 

Also, if we're going by inflation, games should be closer to $80 than $70 by now.

$100 for a game like Halo Infinite seems reasonable to me if you told me those awful packs of weapons in multiplayer from Halo 5 would be gone. Gamepass amplifies in game transactions though so I fully expect Halo Infinite to have some awful micro transactions in Multiplayer. I just hope the campaign is good.

Anyone know why my LAN speed for my PS4 would be 100Mbps full duplex compared to 1000Mbps for my Xbox and PC?

Try a different patch cable or a different port on your switch.

I've tried a different port and I've tried using the cables for my Xbox and PC. None of that helped.

I would be fine with $70-80 games at launch if it included everything and removed microtransactions. But we all know this is never happening. They will continue to nickel and dime experiences. The industry can cry all they want about costs but THEY are driving those costs. I love great graphics but not everything has to be photorealistic and 200 hours long. If Cyberpunk wanted $80 I think that is fair. The problem is every "AAA" game is charging $60 when not all games are equal experiences. The industry creates its own problems and then cries about how they are losing money, which I also do not buy. We would not have video games anymore if these publishers were losing so much money.
