    Well thank you to MS for - yet again - helping me to chose Playstation to get at launch. I'd swung like a chimp in a tyre between getting PS5 or XboxSX but probably not now.


    You'd have thought they'd have learned after the last-gen launch's hilarious fuck uppery. It's as though they like slow starts at the beginning of the new generations.


    You're not getting an Xbox series X because they aren't dropping xbox one?

    Yeah I think I had to provide the Argos receipt - I paid something like £90-100 in one of the promotions that ran a couple of years ago and that was what I got back from MS.

    Great, I did the same. Will go down that route if I get another dud pad.

    I had a similar experience, twice, when I returned my faulty Elite pad. MS do NOT have any 'new' pads available - I was advised that they are *all* returns and in my experience are nothing like the refurbished type you would expect. I ended up using the EU Dispute Resolution portal to secure a refund (which arrived in the form of a cheque from the US). The chap I dealt with in the US confirmed that the service centres are unable (for whatever reason) to ship out new controllers - they will *always* be 'refurbs'.


    Ugh, thats depressing. I was expecting an apple style, "would pass for new" style refurbishment.


    Did you need to provide a reciept showing what you paid in order to get a refund?

    Which of these are announced and forthcoming?


    Because the only racer I know of from an MS first party studio is Forza, of which 0 games are announced for instance.


    They have said the next forza is at a  playable stage already.

    Who made the most money?


    Im pretty sure MS have not made any cash from gaming in 20 years. They’ve made a loss every generation including the 360. Have you forgotten the RROD? That pretty much made sure MS didn’t make anything.


    They are pretty much the worst gaming company out there but subsidised by windows and Office.


    Well that's all made up.  360 was profitable since 2008.

    They won't really know which one the new one is.


    Xbox One X, Xbox Series X.


    There is no way to expect people who are not immersed in gaming to know which one is the new one.  iPhone 3,4,5,6,7.... fine.


    The thing about the iphone is it'll only ever show you stuff you can run and there aren't boxes in stores.  If someone's mum, or even most people see a box saying "Xbox <something> X" in a store they will assume their "Xbox <something> x" can run it.


    It's not going to be the difference between format failure and success, especially in this consolidated gaming era but it's going to be a problem and it's going to be a problem for the entire generation and even beyond for the likes of CEX.


    Or people will just look at the price tag and figure it out?

    If if you enjoy crouch walking & playing tactically/camping you will get good scores but it’s so, so boring.  Rush & go 23-1 or 5-15. It’s a lottery. It’s not really COD.


    I’ll still play it. 


    I regularly finish in the top 3 and I'm charging about.
