Might as well get it started. Who's looking forward to it? I personally think that it could beat PS5, that is if they don't screw up. They need a basic UI, more first party titles, and focus only on gaming. They own the license to Rare games, we need to see new Conkers, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, etc. They did alright with Killer Instinct, I'll give them that, but they're sitting on a lot of games that needs remade, remastered, and sequels.
As far as I know, it's slightly more powerful than the PS5, which isn't a big deal. But what is a big deal is that it will come with more storage. XBSX will have 1TB, which I admit, is not much by today's standards. The PS5 will have 825GB, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing that the next gen games will be around 100gb or more in size on average. If that is the case, I expect the discs will be on 4k UHD blu-rays.

I guess that means no Marvel VS Capcom 2 then? Drat.

Skate 2 announced BC. EA today says servers shut down next month. Good one EA.

Imagine being the developer that just spent the last few months making Skate 2 backwards compatible on the new consoles -- only to have EA announce a day later that they are shutting down the servers. Oof.

Halo 6 won't have co op till next year. Hasn't this series had co op since game 1?

I need a headset for XSX. I hate headsets that don't have a retractable mic, and needs to be wireless.

Razer Nari is top contender, hoping it goes on sale for black Friday, but still expensive. Any good cheaper alternatives?

I've only ever beat Halo campaign's co-op and I've beat them all including ODST and Reach. At least they're adding it as it's been a staple.

Flight Simulator is on Gamepass and I honestly think it's the best looking game I've seen on a console.

I love my Arctis 7x @MrBean. I was able to get new pair for my brother off eBay this morning for $99 shipped. You may want to check your local Walmart because some have had them on sale for as low as $37.

They are rated higher than the Razer.

I tried the Arctis, wasn't a huge fan, but I also have a gargantuan head.

Yah, I tried on ps5 and volume was surprisingly low compared to the official Sony one.

Did you tweak the Arctis' EQ on a PC before using it on your PS5? It sounds much better once you set it up.

I did. It still wasn't great. It had settings for different types of games etc but did not really fix the volume. It sounded great in 3D though.

I use this one. It's pretty awesome. 18 hour battery life too. Legit.

Fair enough. I love my Arctis 7xs, but to each their own.

When I played Halo Infinite the other night, I used my old Turtle Beach X42s. I thought the sound quality was great. I'm curious to see how much better the Arctis 7X are...I need to get those hooked up.

It's been on since July. But they just released the GOTY edition which is why it says it's new. It's really crazy when you fly by where you live. I live in a kind of rural area, and the attention to detail around my area was astounding!

While playing back 4 blood on PC with my razer headphones, I'm definitely sticking with razer. The haptic feedback is just amazing. Makes for a more immersive experience.

... And now I want a set for PS5 (for elden ring).

Which model can you recommend? That sounds cool.

RAZER Nari Ultimate Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset: THX Audio & Haptic Feedback - Auto-Adjust Headband - Chroma RGB - Retractable Mic - For PC, PS4 (Renewed) https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

So looks like Nari Ultimate does work on all 3, you just need the dongle for Xbox, or they have an Xbox specific version that requires no dongle.

It seems crazy that the pc/ps version has the dongle but the Xbox one doesn't. Trying to determine if there's a way to support all 3 with a single headset.

Legit love them, was not expecting the haptic to be this cool.

Xbox doesn't support standard Bluetooth or USB audio, they have their own protocol. PS5/4 and PC use standard USB audio, that's why like the Arctis 7X has a dongle with a switch for PC or Xbox (PC works on Switch and PS4/5)

Halo 5 did not have couch/splitscreen co-op campaign. Most Halos up through Halo 4 did. (Halo Wars did not allow couch co-op either.)

Those of us who really just want Halo for the campaign were, of course, disappointed with Halo 5 not having it -- and have been waiting to see if Halo Infinite did. Luckily, it looks like it will eventually.

Halo 3 was done very well -- since co-op campaign allowed one player to be Master Chief and the other to be the Arbiter -- so the story worked great. (In most of the others, both plays are just copies of Master Chief.)

We'll see what we get with Infinite...

I just want crossplay online co-op so I can play with my bros that game on PC.

On another note, I got my M27Q hooked up and briefly tried a couple games in 1440p 120fps. Man, it's so smooth and the picture quality is fantastic. Looking forward to getting in a real gaming session to really put this through the paces. It's also going to double nicely as another monitor for work.

I think my best cyber Friday week purchase was re village for xb1\xsx for $19.99. Excited to play it. But of the "newer" ones I still have re7 and re3 to play. Which one first if saving the best for last?

Been playing Guardians of the Galaxy and am about 5-6 chapters in. Looks and plays great in Graphics mode and also Ray Tracing mode...but kinda hard to tell the difference. Performance feels smoother of course but mostly seems similar so I've toggled through these 3 options a ton and ended up on Graphics since that looks sharper and still plays really good (on XSX).

It's certainly better than Avengers but it's 2/3 story 1/3 gameplay. The characters and story are fun and well done (Drax steals the show) but I was expecting more action and variety. It's a solid game and I'd recommend it but the recent Tomb Raiders did story while mostly providing action so this feels a little sluggish.


Unrelated, the Xbox.com black friday deals are on and I bought the Batman Arkham Knight DLC (all of it) for like $4 (the "Season Pass"). The game itself was def flawed but to get the Nightwing, Harley, Robin, Batwoman, etc. missions for that price, I wanted to revisit these new pieces. The game itself is only $3.99 (same sale) but since it's on GamePass (and I've previously beat it twice) I just bought the DLC. I hear a lot of it is kinda short but I should dig in soon and wanted to mention it.
