Do the early BF deals run through BF or is it just a weekend deal? Want to wait to see if BB early access allows GCU before I bite.
Edit:looks like yes.

Played hours of Forza 7 on my X and a 4K TV, then stuck in F1 2016, a non enhanced title I thought looked pretty good. Ugh. It looks so blurry "now", although it DOES run better. It had fairly common screen tearing, I raced on two tracks on the X and there was none.

Well I originally had my Scorpio edition ordered on Amazon back in August. After the contact that I posted a few pages ago and some research, it appears that plenty of people were stuck on no delivery date or the most recent emails were saying sometime in after launch. I decided to cancel the order after I got one through Best Buy on Friday.

Happy to say that the status went from processing to preparing last night and is still promised delivery by 11/7.


Don't worry, I'm sure people with an Amazon order can drive to one of the five cities that all all the Scorpio Editions will go to for the treasure trucks, since they are preorder only. :lol:


#13838899 CAG Car Thread!

Posted by 6er on 24 September 2017 - 05:38 PM

Car guy story:

I was browsing Craigslist for fun and ran across a 35th Anniversary Edition Camaro, which I have always liked. I started looking closer and noticed it was missing several things, black and silver wheels, embroidered headrests. I started an email conversation and the guy was telling me it really is a 35th, the VIN says so. Without going into GM specific details yhat doesn't make a lot of sense.(all 2002 camaro had a little plaque on The dash saying 35th anniversary, most people don't realize that doesn't mean it's the special edition, which has RPO code Z4C on the sheet in the door jam). He couldn't send a pic as he was out of town.

I started looking into it and found out the company that made the performance edition cars like Firehawk, 4th gen SS, etc, offers free VIN lookups to see if the car is in their database so you can easily check to see if it's fake or not. I used it on the car locally and a real 35th on ebay. I didn't want to waste time driving to see it if the option sticker shows the Z4C, the code for the limited edition Anniversary Package.

The one on ebay specifically shows the Anniversary edition package was installed at the factory. The one I was look by into does NOT, just the basic package. So I Google the Vin to see if there has been other discussion about this car.

Here is the kicker. Someone(same guy?) bought it a few months ago at a Leake Classic Car auction, and it looks like it was advertised as a special edition. All it really is is a red SS with $350 of Z4C stripes and stickers, that's someone paid thousands too much for. No wonder he is in denial. People are even faking inexpensive 15 year old camaros now.

This is why I like to buy new cars. :lol:

I'll happily stick with my Scorpio. I was shocked by how much I got for my Day One edition when I sold it. This will actually be my 4th Xbox one. I sold my day one way back when target was giving an extra game with purchase of the holiday bundle, then I got my S when target had the buy two glitch where you cancelled the game and an S was $220 after tax. I only paid like $40 to get a brand new one with a game each time. Seemed like a deal, never had to worry about the console dying of age and it was cheaper than buying just the game.

Now, I'm getting the Scorpio because it's what I asked for(a console that could rival or beat a good gaming PC), and I vote with my wallet. Yeah, it probably won't win this generation but you gotta support a division head like Phil Spencer IMO, may never see someone like him in that position again. He's done well for a guy that was basically handled a spoo to clean up a few years of elephant crap that Xbox had become.

spending an extra couple hundred to get the best possible PC available.



Do you realize that is impossible? You need a few extra hundred to just get the best graphics CARD available. You need several thousand more to get the best PC available.

The closest I think a PC site came was $625. But I remember there were some weak links in that build, plus, consoles have MUCH more reliable optimization. PCs get well done games, Doom, GTAV, but 90% of stuff needs a while to work well on most systems. I recently played FEAR 1 and 2 on my 1070. On 2, the menus don't properly scale with resolution bumps, it's just strange, the rest of the game looks great but you load it and see those SD backgrounds. Ugh. Then you get the crazy windows 10 updates that do the absolutely dumbest crap, like the anniversary update that nuked system scearhes. The fact that I had to download a couple MB sized program just to search my own PC properly makes me amazed that a console built like the X is being made by the same company. How the crap do you screw up the search program so bad that it can't find a file based on a search of the EXACT full file name.

Wow, I just got one at Walmart. Not kidding, just randomly decided to check and it said "1 left". Guess someone cancelled. Thank you to whoever.

Mine is warped, I have never taken it anywhere. Only played in handheld mode twice. Bought it in june. Even when I bought it on vacation I played in docked mode when it wasn't in it's box. I tried to take it somewhere once but never had it out of a hard case. So yes, they are warping on their own.

why is there such a big hype for this system? I really dont get it.
for 2017 the only nintendo exclusives are Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Oddysey and Splatoon 2

My big draw is for my kids. On Xbox and PS4 there arent many games I can hand over to my 4 year olds without worrying. They have played the Wii U more than I have played my PS4 and One combined this year

Seriously, backstory time. He steal your girl or what?

On another note, anyone see all the fake NES classics on eBay? I wonder how long it will be before someone starts selling a good knock off that look and play like the real thing. China doesn't care about copyright and trademark infringement, and they hate Japan.

I remember FCA gave dealers an ultimatum when the Hellcat came out and pics started going viral of dealers marking the way up. If they continue mark them up, Dodge will refuse them any new Hellcat inventory, I think even threatening them to be blackisted from getting future special models. That was a pretty awesome move IMO. I think they even had FCA guys randomly check the dealers. THAT is a customer friendly move.

I remember a gaming podcast(so I'm not sure if it's true or just a stereotypical culture story) where a guy traveled to Sony for some reveal and started asking about some of the strange ways Sony does things, like not being able to change PSN names. The guy said SCEA would love to do it, but because of traditional business practices of Japanese culture, which are based around extremely old ideology, the bosses are revered, and nearly to be viewed as infallible, final word should not be questioned or argued. So the old business dude sees that implementation of a name change programs costs a lot of money, and doesn't understand the point because he is a business man, not a gamer, so he says no and the subject is over. Lower levels guys telling him he is wrong is a slap in the face and disrespectful, so they won't dare.
