Much like the PS5 you are buying it now for it to pay off in the future with big exclusive games.

One thing I've learnt with Sony is just buy a console when the game you want gets released or has a firm release date. Remember getting a PS4 near release date for DriveClub. No I won't forget that... :D I notice GT7 has just been pushed back until 2022 now. Probably something to do with the next iteration of PSVR.

 

MS are a bit better with respect to release dates. However Crackdown 3 was way late and Halo Infinite pushed back.

 

Suppose as with anything just wait until there is something you want to play exclusive to the new console. Or just pick one up and expect things to be a bit quiet for a while and enjoy playing things on a better piece of hardware.

 

As for GamePass Ultimate. Guess depends on what MS manage to get onto the service. Paid £80 for a couple of years which is reasonable - probably the price of a couple of AAA games or thereabouts. Think on par so far had easily £40 of value out of it so far this year. I've finished more games on that than previously love the variety on there.

 

When it comes to the end of my 2 years though I'll just review where I'm at and how much it costs etc. See what games are on there and how its gone over the two years. I expect at some point I'll drift back to using my PC and Steam again. But happy with the Series X and GPU at the moment. Always something to play.

It seems that it doesn't matter anyway. Got to the front of the queue, added to basket only to get an error message that there was no stock. Clown shoes!!

 

This was what I was meaning, you have to hit "learn more" on All Access, which will give you access to that option! 

I almost gave up until I figured that out. I was hitting add to basket.

I already have a GPU subscription until December of this year or something and I don't miss a single thing about it. It has literally no value to me. If I want to play a game, I'll buy it. 

:lol:

Damn, so much for this smart delivery :huh:

I'm surprised the case of Control and it's lack of next gen upgrade passed you by, it's been spoken about extensively. People on both Xbox and Playstation who bought the standard edition have been locked out by 505 games.

505 games played it perfectly, those players who bit the bullet and resentfully bought Control for the second time on PS5 were treated to a free copy of the ultimate edition on PSN shortly afterwards. 

 

As someone who sat on the ultimate edition for months waiting for the upgrade to be released, I'm sort of glad Microsoft didn't spring for the ultimate edition on Gamepass.

Yep. Publishers have to opt in. Activision did the same with Call Of Duty. You had to buy the Series X version.

 

So the idea of smart delivery is great in principle....

Generally I love my series x and I’d say MS do just about everything better than Sony except game capture, why is it so shit?  Somehow it’s worse than when I had my previous Xbox one consoles - at least there was a basic editor on the console... 

 

All I want is the ability to select more than a min recording, recors my damn voice and allow me to edit it on the console and upload it FFS

Totally agree. I never had a One, and was surprised that recording on my X is so much worse than it was on PS4.

 

What do you mean by edit? I found trimming clips simple enough.

 

Agree about the length though. 1 minute clips are rubbish compared to the 15mins I could record on PS4. Apparently you record longer if you use an external HDD, but I've not tried. The downside is that you can't upload from the external HDD to Live.

Regarding Control, didn’t Sony just give away the full-fat PS5 version of that on PS+? Got that sitting in my library for the day I finally get one, so wasn’t going to pick it up on Series X.

 

What I will be picking up are Valhalla and Like a Dragon, with some 4k/60fps Gamepass Beyond Light thrown in. :omg:

I think the dispatch won’t be for another week at least. I think I saw March 5th...?

Oh boo :( 

 

I didn’t see that, but I thought the whole checkout experience was a bit wishy washy. 

 

either way happy to have one and be out of the race to try and grab one, even if I have to wait a week for it to arrive.

That All Access deal feels expensive right - it's almost £700 - you can trim well over £100 off that with the gold conversion?

 

 


I’ve already maxed out the Gold conversion and £28.99 a month 0% finance is far more manageable right now than a few hundred quid upfront.
