Xbox One X blows the PS4 Pro out of the water. For all we know, the next Xbox could blow the PS5 out of the water.

I hope so. I don't know the specs for the PS5 as I didn't bother to look but I'm guessing 4K player this time.

 

The Game Pass Ultimate is live for alpha members, anyone try it yet?

 

Apparently it gives you 1 month of Ultimate for every month of either service you already have, so if you have 12 months of game pass and 12 months of gold, it'll convert it to 24 months of Ultimate instead.

 

Might as well sign up if you're in the Alpha Preview....and I guess first apply any codes you're holding onto already since they'll convert into ultimate.

 

If you have 12 months of game pass and 1 month of gold left, it'll convert into 13 months of Ultimate and you'll basically be getting free gold, etc.

I signed up for it but haven't completed the process. You can sign up for it in the insider app. Then from there you go to the store it looks like and you sign up for the first month for $1. Insiders that don't have Gold it appears continue to get it for $1 during the test period. After that it goes up to $14.99 per month.

Also it looks like you are allowed to convert a maximum of 36 months of combined Gold and Gamer Pass.

I have Gold until 11/08/2020 and Gamer Pass till 08/02/20. So I looks like after I sign up for the $1 I'll get 35 months. Sadly I have a 12 month card but I can't redeem it now it looks like.

There are a few errors as well it seems.

If you redeem any prepaid codes after joining on the Xbox One it comes up as error. And then on the 360 irrc, it cancels the subscription. I didn't read the error report all the way but it is something along those lines.

Thank goodness we have statute of limitations. I have no pity for anyone that drags their feet. Report it or don't complain about it years later.

Another comparison for Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered since it got buried in the "discussion." It's a little more than your average vanilla "port":
 
4k resolution, further draw distances, enhanced lighting/shadows/smoke/reflections, better textures, more npcs on screen, better ocean waves...
 
I prefer the upgrades
 
The same is being applied to the Assassin's Creed III Remaster along with HDR support.  This is likely why Odyssey's season pass hasn't dropped yet since you get III for free.


I need Rogue Remastered and like everyone just waiting for ACIII. I really hope they remaster the first one as well. Then I'll have everything in HD.

I don't own any of next months games but I have gotten 100% on rogue with a hard copy but having it available is nice.


If I recall correctly it isn't a true remaster but an upgraded port. There would probably be framerate increases and slight graphical improvement but nothing amazing. I haven't played the X1 version yet but with the 360 version being free I'd recommend only getting the remaster if you're a big fan of the franchise.

Last time checked no one is forcing you to DL the games. Also MS don't even have to offer this as a service. At least it is a something nice for having Gold.

I have EA Access and correct me if I’m wrong but I think I’ll be able to play the demo this weekend. After watching some more videos about it I’m more interested than previously. I’m going to hold judgement until I can try it out.
I did read an article on Gamesrader that Bioware have been trying to make another KOTOR game under EA but haven’t been able to. There is no reason given why but I do agree with the article that it’s most likely due to EA’s focus on online based games.

I played the Closed Alpha and it is interesting. There are a lot of bugs but hopefully they hashed those out during this Beta.
