Okay, I need help doing the xcloud preview. I have the white Game Pass Brta app, but nothing in there leads me to how to play a game on my phone. Do I need the actual xcloud app too?

Sony only owns the movie rights to Spider-Man and they've owned them since 1999.
 
Why the hell would a software company buy movie rights?
 
Also Spider-Man was just in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for the Switch.
 
Maybe do a little homework before YOU waste of your time and energy typing up rants.

Sony also makes films and TV shows... Not just software and technology.

He's talking about MS, since the guy he was quoting said we should get mad at MS for not buying the rights to Spider-Man.

Of course it’s a big deal. That’s why Sony did it. They have no obligation to please anyone but their customers. This is the way the world works. Want to play Spider-Man in The Avengers? Buy a PS4 or PS5 and stop crying. Get over yourself. I can’t believe the amount of entitlement dropping from that post. Sony owes you nothing.

If Sony hasn’t allowed SE to put Spiderman in the game then he wouldn’t be there at all. But both SE and Sony know he will move units, which is good for both companies bottom line, and don’t kid yourself. That’s all any multimillion dollar business cares about. Sony doesn’t “care” about their customers. They please them to make more money. Judging by how this last console cycle went, and how The next one is looking, they are going to do it all over again.

I own all systems fir this very reason. Having loyalty to either Microsoft or Sony, two companies that give no shits about you, is a ridiculous. Maybe be pissed at Microsoft for not out bidding Sony on rights to Spider-Man while you’re at it. That’s an equally incredible waste of your time and energy.

Are we allowed to call people dumb ignorant fucks on this site? This notion of entitled gamer really pisses me off. Entitled gamer would imply wanting something for free. If you at your job find out that your co-workers are getting paid a higher salary and making more money than you for the exact same amount of work wouldn't you be pissed? Wouldn't you want to get paid the same amount or would you be considered entitled for even thinking that you deserve equal compensation? At what point do you start feeling resentment towards you co-workers and boss? By that logic shouldn't all gamers paying $60 get access to the same amount of content across all platforms? What if I don't want to be forced to play this game on my loud as Fuck PS4 Pro and would prefer to play on my silent Xbox One X for the same $60 that everyone else is paying?

If Sony didn't allow SE to put Spider-man in their game then he wouldn't be there at all? THAT'S A STRAIGHT UP BULLSHIT LIE!  Sony does not own the rights to Spider-man in video games, they only own his rights in movies. That's why you see Spider-man in other Marvel games like Marvel Ultimate Alliance, etc... Now it's possible that Sony strong armed Marvel by saying,"hey we'll let you use spider-man in your next movie if you make him exclusive in the playstation version of your game." It's all corporate fuckery. Spider-man doesn't belong to Sony. He belongs to the Marvel Universe. It would be like making Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader exclusive to playstation in a Starwars game. That would be pretty fucking stupid now wouldn't it?

Sony didn't create this game or IP, they literally just paid SE to keep it off the other platforms like some kind of hostile corporate hostage. Sony spends hundreds of millions of dollars for these exclusive deals to entice people because they NEED people to buy their hardware. That's how they make their money. MS doesn't care if they sell hardware. They're primarily a software company and their bread and butter is gamepass. They don't care if you subscribe to it via xbox one, Series X, Andriod or PC as long you subscribed into their ecosystem. Two different philosophies from two different companies.

The guy a few posts above me just said a ton of swears, and they weren't censored. Do they not censor swearing on here anymore? That's interesting.

Only the four-letter F-word is censored.  Everything else is fair game.

Usually when there’s a big sale the stuff is up the afternoon before so I’m skeptical.

Yeah I ran into the same problem last night, was driving me nutty for a minute. In case anyone else stumbles across this when you finally have the "correct" version of the Game Pass "beta" app installed it will be very obvious how to run Xcloud. There are 3 tabs that say Cloud/Console/PC if you don't see those I'd delete the app and install again from the Play Store, only way I could get it to update myself.

Lots of posts today, just happy that my Xbox isn't effed. Sad it's the HDMI port on my tv. Happy I'm under warranty, sad I have to deal with it. Happy Eureka is on another streaming platform, will watch it forever and again

Quick question has anyone successfully transferred gamepass on a Brazil account? I got the keys to activate and I have money on my account but every card I’ve been linking hasn’t worked. Trying to figure this out.

I think any variations on the basic four-letter word will not be censored. For example, he used fucks (n., pl.) which wasn't censored, but in the same post he used the basic word itself and that was censored.

Test: Fuck, fucking, fuckery, microfuckingtransactions, etc.  :-k

 

I'm sure they could censor a lot more shit (test) if they wanted to.

Don't browse Xbox store when tired like I did, or you might buy a game accidentally lol.
I was looking at the games for 5 points in the Microsoft rewards app and was looking at Lost Ember. Think I fell asleep for a bit, when I looked at screen next it said I own Lost Ember.
I know I did not buy it on purpose as it was full price at $42 and I would not spend that much on a game I did not know much about.
Just went through the process of getting a refund, hopefully I will get it.

I’ve been able to redeem codes I’m trying to get gamepass to go through but it keeps asking for card information even though I have Microsoft money for Brazil. Maybe someone around here knows a way around it.

I always thought Fuck was replaced as a joke and not actually censoring it. I've said plenty worse and nothing happened. Not proud of it, but it happened.

Reminder that CAG used to have a censor for the n-word that replaced it with "NINJA" from the Ninja Gaiden logo.

As you can imagine, it resulted in much more usage of the word.

Usually if there's special themed seasonal sales it starts on Thursday at around 11AM or 12PM PST so I guess we'll see in a few hours. I'm setting a course...for DISAPPOINTMENT!

I never expect much from these big sales. All it usually is is a collection of sales that have already happened just stuffed into one — at the same or slightly worse prices.

Played We Happy Few yesterday for the Game Pass rewards and it reminds me I appreciate any game where it gives me non lethal silent means to take someone out, only for it to mean nothing because I'm just going to whack them in the head with a shovel when they're unconscious and kill them because I'm paranoid like that.

I just have no desire to grind out the Solstice of Heroes armor this year. Think I might take a break from Destiny and get back up to speed in FF14 instead.

About 75% done with Quantum Break and it's really good, it's a shame this game didn't perform better. The storytelling is a tad disjointed, since there are characters in the TV portion which have minimal or no presence in the game itself, and sometimes I feel like I'm missing something. 

 

Still great, though, and even if it's by default, one of the best exclusives on the platform.

Since I haven't owned an Xbox in years, I have an easy question. Other than this forum, which is definitely in my bookmarks now, where should I check for Xbox sales? Would this be the best place:

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/

 

PlayStation has an official blog where sales are announced. I keep an RSS subscription there. I'm looking for something similar.

I had so much trouble with the end boss difficulty spike that I gave up and haven't gone back since.
