*waves*

Hey, i just acquired an Xbox One S and wanted to know apart from Gears and halo, anything in particular that's pretty nice that i might need to pick up??

looking for suggestions since i haven't had an Xbox in....like 6+ years or so. Haven't been on this for awhile. 

Forza Horizon 3 + the expansions (especially the Hot Wheels one) if you like driving stuff.

Won't be a new generation until there's Scorpio exclusive titles.

MS is done with generations. Four or five years from the release of the X1X, we'll get another new console that will likely play all the same games that we can play on the X1 now, and the new games that come out then will likely be compatible with older hardware, at least to some degree.

In 2017 and moving forward, what the consoles can and can't play has really nothing to do with what "generation" designation it falls under, just like how I can play newer computer games on (reasonably) old hardware, as well as play older games on my newer hardware. PC gamers don't worry about hard breaks and generation designations, and now consoles are moving into the same boat. The only way this changes is if the X1X completely bombs to a catastrophic degree, and at least based on preorders that doesn't seem likely to happen (that said, the X1 sold well out of the gate too, and look how that would up).

Eventually we'll start to get new games that don't work on the original X1 console, but there will be no hyped up statement from Microsoft saying "this is it, from now on games only work on the X1X" or whatever. Eventually the games that work on the original console will just slow to a trickle and then stop.

Funny how times change.

Especially because the 360 and even the original Xbox had Taco Bell promotions.

 

 

I remember being happy that a Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet song was used as Taco Bell's theme for a couple of years during and after the XBox launch.

Anyway, it looks like we may get a Day One Edition-type variant for the X. "Project Scorpio Edition," if this is right.

Hey, we actually got a fairly recent Street Fighter game today. Capcom really seemed to be dragging their ass on BC prior to this. But this is really all I wanted from them besides the first Bionic Commando Rearmed.

Kind of funny that playing the 360 version of CoD Ghosts on the X1 is the best way to play Ghosts on an XBox console, at least in terms of framerate performance. There's an increase over the 360 version and it holds more steady than the actual X1 version.

All the 360 Halo games are coming to BC "soon." I'd honestly rather that they just fucking fix MCC so as not to split the playerbase even more than it probably already is, but obviously that's not going to happen at this point.

Finally got some new shit. Hopefully tomorrow will have some more stuff to make up for the month off they took.

Pretty cool discussion. Includes a good story about Cena shaming people for not playing a mobile game enough, as well as Xavier coming up with the trombone thing.

Confirmed that, just as with 360 games, you can put the disc in and install (aka download) it.

 

More surprising than that: CROSS GENERATION LAN. I know next to no one will actually do that, but holy shit is that awesome that they bothered to think of that. I almost want to do it just to connect an Xbox 1 to a 360 to an XBox One.

Only 599. Most people were expecting at least 50-70 dollars more.

Adding that to OP. I want to see that thing next to an S to get a size idea.
