Really liked Evil Within 2 though . 8/10. I thought first one was just a bit better.

You could take care of single player games pretty quick, but multiplayer games is where they could get you to subscribe for longer than you may typically.

Yup, and they only need to have you subscribe for like 2 months to break even on the game too as MS's portion of the game only costs about $30 since they don't need to pay for physical media, ship anything, or give Gamestop or whoever their share.

ya they really have it figured out. so gamepass is just l like live or ps plus In that you can play the game as long as youre subbed but its locked if you drop your sub, its a good thing for ms for sure, and if you use it right could be for the customer too. this could drive sony and Nintendo to counter, creating solutions that are good for them and us, as stiff competition will force them to make it a benefit to us to get our subs

Sony is probably going to be stuck with what they have for PSNow's streaming for a while since they spend hundreds of millions on it, but they can add newer games to it rather than a 3-10 year old catalog. Nintendo I could see having a more difficult time implementing this type of thing since they're not too good as far as online implementation goes, all though they could absolutely kill it with the catalog they have available.

ya sadly online to match the big boys doesn't seem to be a priority for Nintendo, but admittedly I wouldn't use it much, but would love to see a better digital games service/virtual console. agree sony is likely invested in psnow but that is how they could counter by offering up games day 1 like ms is going to do. there may not be much incentive as sales are strong and their game library is good, I wonder if ms would be doing this were the roles reversed.

Who knows, but MS does try a lot of weird stuff though, like during the last few years of the 360 they were offing the option to buy the 360 on a plan much like you would a cell phone. A surprisingly high number of people did it though, but not sure why they seemed to have abandoned that method.

I remember the 360 having a deal where it was $99 but you had to buy a certain amount of Xbox live 2-3 years if I remember correctly.

That games pass is such a steal! My only problem is how they've opened it up for PC as well. They are doing so many right things, but it never seems to push the console over the edge for me.

I just did the 14 day free trial thing for gamepass so I could complete a few easier games for the achievement score. There are some good games on there right now, definitely a couple that I've had my eye on but couldn't justify the price tag for what looked to be some pretty short games.

So something weird happened to my XB1X tonight. I was playing AC Origins and I heard a buzzing and the game froze and I closed the app but when I went to restart the game disc it would not play. Just a black screen appeared. No disc read error or anything. I then tried another game disc and the same thing happened. However, when I went to try a bluray disc it read the disc just fine. The only way I could get the system to read game discs again was to hold the power button for 10 seconds and do a hard reset. Anyone else have ever encounter this hiccup? I'm hoping it's an isolated incident and I don't need to call tech support or forbid sending it in for repair like in the 360 days.

Since it worked again after the hard reset I wouldn't be concerned. AC:O probably froze and locked you system up is all. You should have tried a digital game to see if one of those would have loaded.

To do a hard reset, do u need the system to be on or off before holding the power button for 10 seconds?

To do a hard reset, you just need to hold the power button for 10 seconds while it is turned on.

And yeah, I tried my digital games too and they worked, even before I did the hard reset. I am also hoping it was just AC that froze. It did freeze up after the buzzing sound started. I just found it weird that no other discs would read until I did a hard reset. I think I am just going to go digital from now on anyway since I have a big enough HDD.

It probably just locked up whatever software is responsible for booting up games.

As far as the hard reset goes, you just need to hold the power button down for a few seconds regardless if the console in sleep mode or on. Pretty much fixes any weird issues that is happening with your console, from controllers acting weird to wifi not working to the internet explorer app being glitchy.

has anyone seen anything regarding whether kingdom come deliverance is going to need a persistent online connection? im gonna need to "go offline" to play if I want to play this on OneX (which I would prefer), googling isn't giving any answers. I know its a single player games but sometimes those require it, but was thinking they had taken that out of xbox since it was so negatively received a couple years back

Never played it but I know that games like Exile won't let you log on unless you're connected to live because of how your character is tied to your account, which can only be accessed through online.

hmm, I am hoping since its a single player game it will work, I will root around on their forums some more, I may have to get the ps4 version on this as i'll be wanting to play while the kids are fortnite-ing.

I did, it seemed to be about pc only as far as I could tell, one of their community managers responded to a topic I signed up there to post and said no persistent connection is needed so looks like im In business

Jesus, that must be loud then. Is it just during games or all the time?

My Pro is not that loud, the loudest it's got is playing Battlefront 2 and that was not bad. But the fan in the S I think is the issue. My old One was quieter... And I have herd other One S consoles and they don't seem to have this issue. Argh.

I have a "Day One", S, and the X and all of them are super quiet. The "S" is in our living room and I only hear it doing its beep noises during the boot up process and when the drive spins when I put a disc in it. Did you put it in an enclosed area or maybe where it doesn't have much clearance at the top of the machine?

Since I got my One S I have made a comment about the controller being loud, and it is. The sticks are pretty noisey and from what I remember it seems louder then when I had my original One. But it's no biggy as I am planning g on getting another so my fiancee can join my in playing CupHead. Then the other comment was this fan... Not even negative. I may have got a dud. It happens. Boo hoo. I just hate talking with MS support. I never bought this to play games. I bought it for the 4k player and Kodi. I have yet to pop in a movie but it's the best damn Kodi player I have EVER had. I have no buyers remorse here.

I can't crap on Xbox too hard, Rare Replay's tied with Persona 5 on PS4 for Best Bang for Buck Current-Gen, and Rare Replay's ten bucks ahead right now ($40 normally). Also RR's got some serious mass appeal. It's a good system that developers can't be bothered to innovate on, but I'm hoping Xbox One X drives them to push the envelope a bit and gets them excited.

The X is going to be the lead platform for both Forza Horizon 4 and Fable 4, so its going to be interesting to see what those games will look like and how they're going to run. And I agree with RR as amazing bang for your buck. I've put about 210 hours into it and I'm only just over half way done. Not a bad $30 investment (or free if you watched e3 with the mixer app).
