Out of nowhere comment: I hope Marvel Spider-man Game of the Year goes on sale digital for $15 for non plus members so I can sell my physical copy and finish the DLC I currently dont have. Any chance that might happen?
It is $14.99 in 3 different places on BF so I am thinking good chance it hits the same on PSN.

This is legit. Traded in 2 joy cons earlier and got the $10 boost for each.
Same here, Friday evening traded in an Xbox one controller for $18 + $10 bonus for $28 total (not a power rewards member). It had a sticky LB but passed their test. Gonna get a replacement with bluetooth dongle from amazon for $51 as I am switching more and more to pc gaming.

I am doing some of the early demo derbies and those seem to work better (or at least the car/vehicle lasts longer) if you go backwards. I don't really enjoy those that much.
I will have to check out some of the online stuff next. I haven't messed with that yet.
Since they patched it load times are much better and it is in 4K now. Also, online is a blast! One more thing - you can create your own single player custom races and I believe you get XP for playing them.

Anyone here take the plunge to beta test RDR2 for the sake of improving it's Steam release? Reading that performance is not so bueno.
I pre-ordered it, read threads of horror stories at lunch hour, came home from work and installed it, clicked Play expecting all hell to break loose and.....no problems whatsoever. I picked a balanced graphics setup with most stuff on medium, 1440p 60hz limit. I ran the benchmark and hit a max of 63FPS. Started playing the game for real and 2 hours in no issues. It looks great - could be a bit sharper but medium for this could pass for high on most other games. My specs are:
Ryzen 5 2600x
RTX 2060 vanilla
16 GB 3200 RAM
installed it on a SSD drive
using 49" Sony x900e TV as a monitor so 1440p is like 60DPI but it still looks pretty damn good.
I am looking forward to getting a hypothetical RTX 3070 next year and seeing how good this game can really look!

FYI - Outer Worlds achievements in game pass Windows version don't count toward the new xbox rewards monthly set. That's OK, game is so good I may fire it up on xbox and play a line toeing corporate character to balance my the corporations character in the Windows10 version.

It's not on the rewards app yet but the Borderlands 3 one ends in 2 days....maybe FIFA will replace it? Hopefully it works like other EA Access trial games have in the past.

I know Gears 5 and Borderlands 3 just came out but I am still having a blast with Wreckfest this weekend. A lot of 'holy shit' moments with the physics and car damage. I will get to Gears in a few weeks once it's patched up and Borderlands can wait for a sale + discounted Microsoft rewards points if that ever comes around again. I hope Wreckfest comes to game pass in the next few months so that more players try it. That worked for OnRush where a lot more people gave it a go and liked it.
