Missed the opporunity to be r¢$ample

On the topic of first games ever beaten, I think for me it would have been the original Mortal Kombat on the SNES (if that counts). Otherwise, probably SMB. The first game I remember really logging a lot of hours on to beat was FFVIII, though.

That's a great idea! Youre hired as my manager when I hit the big time streaming on The WordPress!!

I claimed my code as soon as it went live. I didn’t realize till later that it included the full game download as well. I did it for ps4 because I wanted to see how bad it was on regular ps4 based off a lot of comments I read. I don’t play my ps4 much too loud and too hot!

Anyways it took me a while just to make a square account couldn’t remember if I had one and the page took forever to load a code and kept checking my account for the code like they said and got nothing. It took like an hour later till I got an email with my beta code. So if it’s taking a while for some or you don’t see it give it time.


Yeah that was part of my reasoning too, I played the beta last weekend and my PS4 Pro was loud!! I figure the X1X will be better so I went with that

Similar "Xbox" only on the spine that 360 games in these cases have always had.

I have a bunch of exclusives on PS4 and my son got Ghost of Tsushima. But I just can’t take how loud my PS4 gets. Not a console war thing because I do love some of their exclusives but it really feels like a POS when I play it versus my mouse quiet X1X.

It’s my biggest complaint about the PS4 Pro. I sold mine a few months ago and got an OG PS4...the fan still spins up with Tsushima, but I could not imagine what a Pro must sound like. I feel like the OG PS4 is very tolerable noise-wise.

Are these 360 discs that they left the branding off of? Or are these installing off the disc like a native X1 title? Usually a 360 disc just triggers a download.

Talking about the noise of these systems, I’m surprised Microsoft didn’t try to do a similar liquid-cooled method for the Series X that they used for the X1X since it is almost silent.

That big fan on top might stay pretty quiet, if not it’ll be gone in revision 2.

They are just 360 discs in Xbox One style cases. Microsoft probably doesn't have any more of the 360 ones for new printings and they want to make it clear that they play on XB1.

That's really attractive. The spine... not that cover art.

Totally missed that part apparently, probably focused on that big fan at the time. Good to see they kept it!

Bloomy is the man! The sale... not so much

I’m hoping maybe some 360 sales would redeem them

Hmm, typically when we see a weekly sale this small it is a sign that a big sale will start sometime during the week.  Maybe we'll finally get the annual Summer Sale that is usually in July.  Maybe they were waiting to get the original Xbox and 360 games moved to the modern store before running the sale.

 

Just a theory.

The Forza Horizon expansion is probably good enough for me. I'm sure not shedding any tears over my Xbox Live Gold membership expiring, though.

I believe X1X uses vapor chamber cooling and not liquid cooling.

1st game I beat was DOOM on the pc. My father was a CAD designer and had access to very powerful computers. He would pick me up from the house and take me to his work. His coworkers and I would play DOOM over LAN. That ended shortly after I was playing some race car sim and actually bricking a $20,000 pc. The company was not pleased but  never found out what happened so thankfully no one lost their jobs.

I think Doom was my first too probably.  I played games on 2600, NES, Colecovision and a few others but don't recall ever finishing them.  I ran a BBS back then and someone uploaded one disc each night.  I chatted him and was like tell me why I shouldn't delete this.  It takes forever for someone to download all 6 (IRC) 1.44 floppies.  He convinced me to try it (I had two PCs) and I stayed up until day break playing it.  I hadn't played a video games like that in years before that.

I'm hoping for a massive Xbox 360 sale towards the end of November. If they don't do a great sale then, it shows truly they don't care about Xbox 360 sales.
