So you left because of always online and digital only and now you’re back for Games Pass and games as a service? How ironic.

Point out where he claimed that.

Guys...if you can’t see the irony about the timing in relation to his initial motivations to quit, I can’t help you.

So after a long time away I picked up an Xbox One X, not quite living in a 4K world yet, but with the optical drive in my launch 360 dying/dead and most friends having hopped over I have made the leap.... man halo 5 was disappointing, on the bright side despite its flaws forza 7 ruled and I am looking forward to Red Dead

have not procured any game pass(though I guess Xbox live gold is a bit of a game pass). I think I have seen MS advertise that on the dash, but have not looked into it.  I bought Halo 5, and Forza 7. plan to buy red dead. also picked up rare replay.

the BC from my 360 games has been pretty nice I would say 60% of my disc based games and 80% of the arcade games work. playing chrimson skies on the xbox one x was a trip... I do not remember being that crap at it!

But he isnt back for gaas and game pass. He is back because all of his friends have made the jump to X1.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

The Xbox One is literally the worst console of this generation. Games Pass? For what? Forza and Halo? I know that example is dramatic - but the X1's exclusive library is total garbage. PUBG doesn't change that.



Talk about rising from the dead.

Game Pass has way more than just Halo. But its easy to tell you didnt do your fact checking, because forza isnt even on the game pass.

Instead, what you have is: Halo 5, Halo Wars 1 and 2, all four gears games, mass effect, rise of the tomb raider, dirt rally, bioshock trilogy, saints row 4, mad max, borderlands, bayonetta, soul calibur, ninja gaiden black, dead island, dead rising 3, banjo kazooie/tooie, metro last light, darksiders 1&2, devil may cry 4, fable trilogy, recore, rime,  sunset overdrive, state of decay, and much more.

Forza is a great game which could flagship the Xbox... unfortunately Halo is in decay and constant Forza sequels ruin the Xbox experience for me.

 



Feel free to check out my stream on twitch 

Great time to pick one up, let alone the X1X. There is enough of a backlog to keep you busy and plenty of new games around the corner. Gamepass is a phenomenal deal if you're into that. It honestly super nice having BC. I never played the Saints Row games before and I just jumped into Saints Row 3 and I've been having a lot of fun with it. If it wasn't for BC I would have never played it.



If your friends only play xbox i guess there is nothing you can do about it.
Personally, I'd rather play alone on switch or on pc
