#14330284 Xbox Series S/X Pre-Order Thread - Now with Direct Links! - Live 9/22 8AM...

remember to keep in mind that on series s any xbox one titles will run with original xbox one settings, not xbox one x, so thats another reason to wait with your xbox one x before getting the series x

 

 

 

man writing that really made me hate their naming scheme

i think the issue is the first poster said its launch price was a joke, like its ripping people off. so people are defending the game having a launch price of 25 bucks, not saying for everyone itt to go buy it now

I honestly can’t believe Microsoft is still allowing for the use of those batteries in their controllers. I mean; the Elite 2 has a rechargeable battery, not sure why they didn’t continue on with that. ‍♂

i apologize in advance but this is a hill i very much like dying on

 

 

if you buy batteries in bulk the amount of cents you spend on each of them is negligible compared to the cents it takes to charge your proprietary battery. and it comes with other benefits. one is that if your lithium battery goes defunct or reaches the end of its life you dont have to teach yourself how to replace it. were seeing this with psp and ds3 batteries, and people having to hope what theyre buying is reliable. maybe dont try the cheap Chinese ones. and thats IF you can open it up at all (cough cough ps5)

 

more important is that your charge time becomes zero. if your batteries die/need recharging they can be swapped out instantly. the alternative on ps4 is to have an extra, fully charged remote at the ready. or being tethered to the front of your living room.

 

 

bringing eneloops into it adds another layer but at that point youre choosing to have the benefit of batteries, while being greener, and saving money in the loooooooooooooooong term. just dont use them for everything, keep reliable disposable batteries in your smoke detectors.

 

 

im willing to concede that these benefits are unintentional, and that MS is just saving money on shipping 2 double-a's instead on a lithium-ion, but its something with its own benefits nonetheless

7.99, new lowest price for yakuza 0 on ps4

 

 

anyone who has been interested in digital games in particular, this is the time to be checking these sales. it wasnt too long into the ps4s life that sony basically stopped including ps3 titles in sales 99% of the time

doom or no doom, since i have psn til 2025 (20 buck price error) and over 200 bucks in psn credit thanks to PUR im locked in for ps5 to play new multiplats/sony exclusives for now. pc hasnt been upgraded since 2016 but i should be able to play the odd MS game i wanna play, just in 1080p. 

 

 

this is the best fight ms has ever given sony tho.

I usually insta-block people that use terms like sony ponies, nintendrones or xbots, but you've been a pretty good, informative poster so you get this pass  ;)

sorry i guess that term has real bad blood here or something, ill just change it to say fanboys for both. just thought that would read really dry but oh well

literally all this posting about starfield, fallout 5, es6 is all speculation. the games dont even exist yet

 

 

sony fanboys need to wait til the games exist before panicking or rationalizing that theyre still multiplat, and the xbox fanboys unironically cheering because playstation may not get something need to reevaluate their life

 

 

i figured this website is mostly adults. some of these threads are really disappointing to look at right now. one user who is in every one of those threads in particular needs to  Fuck off. you know who you are.

Playing it now and having a hard time adjusting to Sunshine's controls. They are very sensitive and I find myself falling off platforms with the smallest movement. Wish they had a sensitivity option to change.

 

I don't recall the controls being that sensitive but I'll get used to it.

ive used emulators a bunch so im used to it but i may know why the controls probably feel off to you

 

 

those analog stick notches. i think the wiiu was the first system to get rid of them. they do make a difference

dude he just saw the lightning sale announcement and thought to post it in the nintendo thread beforehand because it would be done in 2 minutes. it didnt explain the discount he didnt know you just save 7 bucks

 

 

and thanks for posting it to, because i have a code that gave % off the msrp and applied the savings after. so it was a good deal to me

you must not have been around to see the prices on xbox 360 proprietary hard drives

the memory cards are 100 bucks for 1tb
 
expensive, but a 1tb compatible ssd for the ps5 will likely be more expensive for a while


True, but if your game gets delisted without notice then you might be SOL if you want to reinstall it. A rare issue, but always possible.

that only applies to..........i think the free PT teaser is the only time thats happened on ps4. i have delisted games i can still download on ps4

maybe what he meant was

 

 

its surprising that they dont target the switch first in terms of performance, and then port it to other platforms with 60fps and/or higher resolutions

if we can take a break from the terrible, terrible off-topic posts

 

 

 

digital foundry was a lot nicer to 3d all stars than i was expecting. i was scared for a little while, after seeing their limitations when the game leaked i was sure they would uncover even more that no one had been able to leak yet, but now im really excited.

if any of you DO go digital you might want to remember that if enough people make that choice......then next time it wont BE a choice



$70 still doesn't seem too crazy, when you think that people were already willingly paying $120+ for ultimate editions of games, and $200+ for collectors editions of games

yeah it doesnt seem crazy when compared to complete insanity, thats true
