Stupid question but is that the Final Fantasy 7 remake that's coming to game pass?

Should just be the original version as Sony has exclusive rights to the remake for a year if I an not mistaken.

Remember how everybody was furious because PS4 is getting Spider-Man and a bunch of other crap for Avengers that Xbox isn't getting (at least not at first)? There's a new rumor that Final Fantasy 16 will either be a complete PS5 exclusive, or up to a one year exclusive on PS5 before coming to Xbox Series X.


Ugh, I really hope not. I can deal with waiting to play Final Fantasy VII Remake, but it would hurt to have to wait an extra year for a number series game. :(

You know, if the Final Fantasy games were to be exclusive to PlayStation for a year or so then be on Xbox and come to Game Pass day one, I'd totally accept that trade off.

Sony may be playing hard ball with the new FF after seeing MS making strides with not only that series but Yakuza, Dragon Quest and Disgaea.

I would not be happy with FF 16 being a PS exclusive. But gotta say I’m impressed with the inroads Microsoft has made getting more Japanese games on Xbox.

Be that as it may, it takes two to tango and set up that exclusivity.

 

But then again, rumors be rumors.

Bought 3 years of Gold to finally do the Gamepass upgrade and forgot to not get the extra months you get for leaving recurring billing on and now I can't redeem to final year because it would put me over the limit. fml

I was going to go for 100% but the arcade games ruined my patience. They feel easy but after losing the racing game multiple times I decided I didn't care.

There is a part you have to make a jump to cut off about 6 seconds of your time.  Once you find that, I googled it, I did it the second time.  Before that, I spent about 30 minutes so I feel you.

I didn't know there was a shortcut, but I beat the highscore by simply memorizing the curves and boosts. Just like oldschool F-Zero.

 

The only thing I can't seem to pull off in that game is a 540 spin in surfing for the cheevo. I get to maximum speed and height but still can't.

Yeah, the game is very forgiving when it comes to how you land.....as long as its the front of the board, no matter how 'flat' it counts it as a land and not a spill.  So, I just got lucky when it landed on my play-through since I was horizontal instead of vertical landing.

Anyone else getting horrible download speeds for updates? My son is bugging the shit out of me because of the new Fortnite update not downloading. I have 150 MBPS internet and running speed tests on everything confirms I'm in triple digits, yet when I've checked all three XB1s I'm literally getting speeds under 1 MBPS lol.

Sorry man that sucks. Same thing happened to me in June. I contacted customer support and they said I just had to wait 2 months. I have a little more than a week left and then I can finally redeem my third year.

I’m not a fan of most of these Japanese games, especially FF but I know it’s a big deal and I’m glad Microsoft has been able to do what they have.

Microsoft needs more Japanese exclusives for the Xbox. Final Fantasy and Yakuza are years old by the time they finally come over and irrelevant for people that own both consoles. The 360 had tons of Japanese exclusives and then Microsoft just gave up this generation.


Well, the new Yakuza will be launching on Xbox the same day as other platforms. Kingdom Hearts 3 did as well. These moves are definitely a step in the right direction.

Really excited to see Darksiders Genesis coming to Game Pass, have almost bought it a few times. Hoping it's something my girlfriend will want to play if she can pull herself away from Skyrim.

No they don't.

 

They just need Japanese titles to come to Xbox period.

 

The most popular Japanese exclusives in the 360 gen were Tales of Vesperia and Blue Dragon with sales around 200K each.

 

It's not worth money hatting Japanese exclusives.

So I'm not exactly sure how I got the 540 spin but make sure you do a trick after every jump to build your speed, either the 180 degree or the simple nose dive. Other than that go all the way down before going back up. So basically you want to build up your speed and momentum kind of like a pendulum swing. Also keep spinning to the right seemed to work. Good luck!

I traded in my physical copy this past weekend for more than I paid, so I’m happy with this announcement as well!

So where exactly is this exclusivity between Sony and Square Enix coming from?  Is it because they are both japanese companies? Has Microsoft done any exclusive deals since Rise of the Tomb Raider? Maybe it's time for MS to open up the war chest and start playing hardball again and fight fire with fire. It's clear that these exclusive deals are key in Sony gaming huge market share, something that Xbox enjoyed during the 360 days.

This is a great month.  My son has been asking for Trailmakers for months now.  Darksiders has been on my radar.  Undermine was highlighted by someone in this thread and looks great.  Game Pass keeps delivering!

My Modern Warfare update is going at less than half a megabit right now... Everybody complains about PSN speeds but Xbox downloads are way slower more often from my experience.

I've never played myself but I've been warned: don't try to pull someone away from Skyrim. Apparently it's a dangerous move lol

You do realize that the PS4 destroyed the Xbox One in sales this generation and part of that reason is no variety in games, right? If you wanted to play Yakuza and Final Fantasy VII you would have bought a PS4. The people that actually buy consoles for these types of games aren't going to wait years for them to finally be ported over to Xbox. Microsoft would do better to invest money in good Japanese exclusives instead of substandard first party titles that no one wants to play. Other than Halo, Gears,a and Forza I'm willing to bet most if not all of their first party games sold below 200,000.

But most of those Japanese games outside Final Fantasy 7 are niche games and make no where near the sales of their strong first party titles so I think if anything it's the first party support that makes the difference, the Japanese third party games are a nice bonus, but they're not the steamroller you make it out to be. Even than the reason Xbox got destroyed this generation is because they had one of the most mismanaged launches in history.

100000% wrooonnnggg. What completely destroyed xbox this gen was a lack of any games to play that people actually cared about though out this generation and that falls squarely on the shoulders of dumb dumb Phil Spencer. PS3 had the most disastrous launch in video game history, nearly bankrupting the entire Sony company. In an alternate timeline this would have happened if not for the great minds of Kaz Hirai, Jack Trenton and Andrew House which saw them turn around the most disastrous console launch in history and actually out sell the xbox 360 despite being the dominant console for most that generation. PS3 got swan swongs like The Last of Us which catapulted the PS4. Where is the Xbox One's swan song? 7 years later and Phil Spencer's great crowning achievement to this generation is Voodoo Vince!? We're at the advent of a new console generation and Halo has never looked or ran more like dogshit. Ryse Son of Rome from 2013 looks more like a next gen game than Halo Infinite does. What has Phil Spencer been doing for the past 7 years? This generation did not have to go down the way it did. Time to stop blaming Don Mattick and realize that his successor is nothing more than a snake oil salesman. Xbox fans deserve better!

My Xbox downloads are usually around 100 mbps. My PSN downloads are around 5 mbps. It’s infuriating. Usually have to wait at least 6 hours to play any new PSN games.
