      Just got one for this reason. I can play breakdown again. Breakdown! MS bought a lot of devs before zenimax and blactivision took everyone's attention and I do think we'll see a payoff of that in threeish years but even if it doesn't pan out, I'm not gonna be mad about my 6th and 7th gen box.

      You're asking for anons to project their opinions onto you without giving more information about YOUR tastes.
      Do you even like playing on a handheld? I think it handles like dogshit and you should obviously go for a home console instead.

        Todd tried to submit the usual jank and said modders would fix it but Phil put his foot down and told them to release it in a decent state. Phil's got a stable of devs, he knows the games will come, what he wants is to mend the reputation and you don't do that by letting Todd pull his usual shit.

      Will they ever recover? I can see them going the way of Sega

        They will probably never fully recover.
        Only way is for Sony to make the same mistake Microsoft did in 2013 and Xbox becoming the only console on the market for 7 years like it was for ps4 which is very unlikely.

          Of course Microsoft will never leave, since Xbox is still a pretty strong brand and an incredible pice of hardware with very good games and more to come out but will never recover the same fame of the 360 era.

    Ganker acts like I'm trolling when I say the Series X is my favorite console of all time but it honestly is. Ever since the 360 I've really enjoyed Xbox and it's ecosystem. I own every Xbox console, an extra imported 360 for Japanese imports, and I'm even considering getting a Kinect for my 360 just to get the few games on it that look interesting to me. I'm probably one of the few pro-Xbox posters on Ganker. Most of the others are just falseflagging pcfags trying to make PlayStation fans mad and it's annoying.

      Yeah Xbox is pretty good in this gen IMO. I have a good PC but also have a series S that I got for super cheap on the side for some other games. I paid less than $200 CAD for the thing so I'm happy with it 🙂

      Is the Series X still region locked? I heard that you can just put in a disc from Japan for example and the console will just download the game for your region instead.

    Already have a PC that's powerful enough to play the games I want to play, every "exclusive" is also on PC, already have a 360 to play 360 and original Xbox games There is no reason at all for me to ever pick up the console, or even the controller (basically the same as the Xbone one I already have), I am completely neutral on this console.

    But still, fuck Microsoft for what they did to Rare.

    I bought it to play Xbox 360 and Xbox One games with faster loading screens. I am very happy with my purchase. I am thinking about buying a PS5 to play PS4 games with faster loading screens. Is PS4 to PS5 compatibility just as good?

      Fuck no. The games will generally be better, sure. But Microsoft put actual effort in, plus having a backlog of 20 years in comparison to just 10.

      Breakdown is a first person beat'em up which if you liked it, you really liked it.
      Phantom Dust is free and the same kind of deal where people who liked it loved it.
      Gladius was a lucas arts gladiator tactical rpg back when they made really good games.
      I've not specifically played the versions of the ZOE games in the HD collection yet but those are both stellar games.
      Haven't played it but I've always seen anons say good things about Lost Odyssey, same with Dark Dreams Don't Die and Enchanted Arms.
      There's OG versions of games that didn't get very good remasters like the Ninja Gaiden series.
      It's got Nier, OG Prey, Perfect Dark, Gun Valkyrie, and The Darkness and the sequel.
      Doesn't have everything you could want but it's not a shit selection like switches nes and snes games and Sony's collection on their gamepass.

    Slightly better hardware but the dev tools they give out makes it so PS5 versions sometimes run a little better than it.
    Halo, Gears and Forza were getting old 10 years ago, but we're still getting new games in each of those series
    No games besides the above 3 because Microsoft are both retarded and incompetent.
    Gamepass is a good deal if you use a promo, but it's 3-5 years away from jacking up the price to turn a profit
    Went full garden gnome with the proprietary storage expansion cards

      Right now, nothing. I've played a load of Halo Infinite multiplayer and I'm bored now. Trying to force myself through Gears 5 but it's a struggle, so I mainly use it for Fifa because I got a cheap code for it.
      I play all multiplats on PS5 because I enjoy trophies and prefer the controller.
      I'm considering selling it because I could be doing with the money but I don't want to regret not being able to play Halo Infinite/MCC and future games like Doom and Starfield.

          Yeah the Xbox controller is fairly comfy to hold physically but I really don't like the feel of the face buttons and how loud everything is, it also just feels cheap
          Only 5 plats sadly anon, I used to like going for hard trophies (like the one for getting all collectibles in InFamous) but not necessarily platinums, only in the past year I'm going back to games and trying to unlock the platinum

            That one was so retarded, weren't there like 600 shards to collect?
            I have 36 plats, my most recent one being REmake. I have a little thing where I want to have at least one plat in a franchise I really like, Yakuza being the only one where I never actually went through with that.

    I'm still waiting for some actual next gen only games but that's an industry wide problem because nobody wants to drop the last gen userbase. The xbox show on Wednesday should at least give us a look at some true next gen only games I guess. With that being said my most anticipated game in the near future is hogwarts legacy which is cross gen but the next gen version is releasing like 2 months before the last gen so I'm benefitting in that way I suppose.

      Xbox 360 was great. But Xbox has been largely irrelevant since 2013. Gamepass is the only thing that care about now and that's worthless for me since it's all digital. The leadership/management is abysmal, they have like 20 studios and they have the worst output out of the big 3. I think Xbox will become 3rd party at some point.

      I think all the acquisitions took longer to get up and running than expected. With how many studios they bought, there should be something showing up before too long on gamepass also on PC . It's a win/win whatever happens.
