  1. That's the plan alright but I just wonder is there a point where MS stop and say it isn't worth continuing to develop the Xboxone port. Being a cross gen game made a lot of sense when you'd want a load of Xboxone owners there to fill out multiplayer games. If this slips far enough back to be a late 2021/early 2022 game then I'm not so sure. "Xboxone owners can still play Halo Infinite through xCloud" sound like something that might happen.
  2. At what point do you think they'll just drop the Xboxone version of the game?
  3. The lack of a big exclusive game is undoubtedly a bummer as I'm now spending €499 where I'm mainly looking forward to having a modern feeling Xbox thanks to that SSD loveliness. I am looking forward to that loveliness though. Fuck load times.
  4. Odd question, but does any man involved in covering games/consumer technology have regular sized hands? Every other video it's "oh I have big hands".
  5. The most valuable thing about Valve is that they have a hardcore base of almost irrationally loyal customers. Eurogamer and a few other places ran stories about how at one point in early August about how many Microsoft games were doing exceptionally well on Steam despite them all being available as Gamepass. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.eurogamer.net/amp/2020-08-01-microsoft-is-having-a-good-time-on-steam-right-now If anyone buys Steam then I'd find it hard to believe the fan base will stay as loyal.
  6. It says in the article that the vote of no confidence was scheduled to take place in November with the 1st and 2nd of the month as the likely dates.
  7. In that Game Reactor interview Spencer spoke about how they are weak in the E-Rated market. So they'll buy Nintendo.
  8. Taken from the Thurrott write up on Microsoft's accounts. I'm not an accountant but that seems good. https://www.thurrott.com/microsoft/243228/microsoft-posts-another-monster-quarter
  9. https://amp.theguardian.com/football/2020/oct/27/barcelona-president-josep-maria-bartomeu-and-board-of-directors-resign?CMP=share_btn_tw&__twitter_impression=true Well that's one way to avoid getting sacked.

    Xbox Game Pass

    I knew where it was from but I was wondering if anyone here had actually read it or were we all relying on the same selective quotes and how it was interpreted by different reporters.

    Xbox Game Pass

    Has anyone actually read that Phil Spencer interview? I've seen various quotes from it knocking around the place but I haven't seen the full thing. The potential streaming stick seems like it'd be at the opposite end of the scale to this Xbox Platinum thing. They made it sound like it'd be a $50 stick that you could get for free it you bought a subscription to GamePass. The platinum stuff sounds like All Access but why use a different name if it's just going to be the same thing?
  12. Skip to the 12 minute mark if you want to see someone pick up a Series S. It's very small.
  13. Seems like a decent idea but I'd be very sceptical about ordering that before I'd seen any sort of review.
  14. I think part of it is that once they pulled out of the power race with the Wii then they couldn't compete on with the other consoles in terms of pure spectacle which is something that draws people to big action games on other platforms. We know that Nintendo are capable of making striking looking games but there is no way for them to compete with the likes of Uncharted, Gears of War or the newest Call of Duty in terms of set pieces.
