Sony expects the PS5 to sell 120 million units in it's lifetime, and they estimate it's lifetime to be pretty short compared to their previous consoles, only about 5 years. Meaning that we could see the PS6 in 2025 or 2026. Since Microsoft has put all of it's chips into streaming Xbox games anywhere on smartphones, or using your PC and Xbox One to play select Xbox Series X titles for at least the first year or two of it's existence. It will be interesting to see if they also release a new console in 2025 or 2026. Nintendo has already stated that they see the lifecycle of the Switch being 6 or 7 years. So, it's interesting to see Sony go the opposite direction. Most Sony consoles had a lifecycle of 7 to 11 years practically in the past.

Looks like Pyschonauts being free was a glitch -- when I first went to the link it was showing free but kept getting an error that something went wrong on their side - now it shows up at $9.99 

yeah - I am bummed about this one. I have the disc and actually installed it yesterday so it would have been awesome to not need the disc when I start playing.

 

appreciate the looking out getting this posted on here last night, too bad I need to sleep

Free Psychonauts: https://www.microsof...ts/c5hhpg1txdng

 

I had to use a VPN to grab it from outside of the US.

Better than GWG offerings. Such a classic.

Bummer I missed out on Psychonauts. If I had checked the thread before bed I would've seen it. Guess I'm not dedicated enough to cag.

I started Rime yesterday before it leaves gamepass. It's a nice looking fun puzzle game. It looks like it's short enough that I can finish it with plenty of time.

Missed Psychonuats as well but just finished Rime, startet it in 2018, it's a short but good puzzle game, was missing a few collectables, luckily you have a chapter select when you finish the game. A few of them are easy to miss without a guide. Or searching every nook & cranny.

Question: my friend sent me a message about playing the game deep rock galactic tonight. Found a cheap key on eBay for the game from a seller in Argentina with pretty good reviews. Is global game key activations a thing? The key says global but not sure what that means.

When I tried last night, it would show free until I logged into my account then it would show up at $9.99. Bummer. I can’t remember if I have this on Xbox or pc.Great game.

It is a thing, most of the time those keys are given out by developers/publishers or Xbox Team members though. Keys generated by buying from the microsoft store are always region locked to market it was bought in...but there are still ways to work around that.

I can't even begin to think about next-next gen right now. Let's just get some prices on the PS5 and Series X first.

It definitely looked more fun today than in previous showings. This is a wait-and-see for me though.

Claimed Psychonauts from my Xbox while I was finishing up Plague Tale.  There were a few frustrating parts but I really enjoyed it.  Great visuals and music and a nice variety of gameplay mechanics.

 

Looks like I'll end up at around 20.5k in reward points earned for July.  Less than previous months but still not too bad.

How so many points? I’ve only been getting about 15K per month and I do most everything I can, including game pass quests. The only thing I don’t really do is the punch cards that require a certain amount of purchases to be made because that would require me to spend more than normal

Did you make any big purchases?

 

I only bought GTA V Premium Edition for $5.99 this month.

 

I earned 17,638 and that's with 2,500 from my rewards streak and 1,000 from the Monthly Game Pass Quest.

My guess would be that since Double Fine is an Xbox Game Studio now, they want to ramp up a little hype for Psychonauts 2 coming to Game Pass.


https://youtu.be/G6SRtNZb_D4



A little off topic: Anyone want to jump online with You Don't Know Jack (360) this week? I have a couple achievements to clean up. Also, darthfracas, I know you finished the game but are you still up for some Catan?

If you can get a couple more people together, let me know. I’ll gladly be a fourth to drop out and leave the CPU with a shitty starting position.

Has anyone seen anything about how EA Access will work on the new Xbox. I couldn’t find anything. I understand if they are keeping quiet about it but I wasn’t sure if I missed something.

Right now I am not super excited for that Avengers game. Something seems off to me. BUT...as a mostly solo player I love the idea of using AI characters that come from my own stable and have my builds and equipment. I just hope the AI is done right and not overpowered or straight up stupid. This is definitely a wait and see game for me.

I splurged on Hitman 2 Gold and Shadow of Mordor (since I didn't get to finish it and all the DLC while it was on GP)... using credit from the previous hot deal.  No other big purchases this month so not sure where the difference is.

Flight Simulator sounds like it’s amazing. Wish we’d get an update on the Xbox One release. Also wish I had a decent enough PC to play it with GamePass but have a feeling mine would choke.

Yeah my PC is right on the minimum line of things so not sure if I'm going to do the 110 gig download or not. Then again Star Wars Squadrons is going to have VR support, maybe it's time for me to stimulate the economy. Haha I'll at least take a look at the achievement list.
