I am so looking forward to wrecking my car in Dirt 3 because it's BC (or should be) on my Xbox One. I know Forza is a better game, but when I play the demo and try to see how many times I can flip my car in a wreck it's just fun.

By they way, can you tell I'm not great at Driving games? But I still want to have fun. And occasional spectacular crash is fun for me.



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

Judging by some bigger online stores, it looks like Halo is pushing consoles even here in Finland, and this is pretty much a Sony-land. Of course we are not talking about huge number of consoles sold, but it's something. Hey, Halo 5 is even outselling a quality dishwasher machine, imagine that! :)



Outlast 2 Announced.

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Release Date: Fall 2016



If they're dropping the price of that Kinect bundle by $100, it makes me wonder if they will drop the price for any other bundles.



Halo 5 has been okay from what I've played. Not that great but not bad either. I've only done 2 missions and played a bit of the multiplayer, but those are my thoughts so far.

Microsoft Details How DLC for Xbox 360 Titles Will Work on Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

With the lid finally lifted on when Xbox 360 backwards compatibility will be rolling out publicly to the Xbox One on November 12, Microsoft shed a little bit more light on how DLC for Xbox 360 titles will function on Xbox One, and the ways that you can install those add-ons and expansions from previous games on the new console.

Microsoft gave a more in-depth explanation of the process to Game Informer, with the company detailing how DLC can be downloaded through the New Xbox One Experience when it launches on November 12th.

Specifically, Microsoft detailed that in order to access DLC from Xbox 360 games, it will either need to be purchased from an Xbox 360 console or through the Xbox Games Store on Xbox.com. Microsoft explained that “right now, Backward Compatibility does not emulate the Xbox 360 store and new Xbox 360 games can be purchased on your Xbox 360 or Xbox.com,” which was explained to Game Informer via email from a Microsoft representative.

Microsoft also suggested to Game Informer that full emulation for Xbox 360 store purchases is something that the company plans to work on, but won’t be a feature available just yet, or at least not with the New Xbox One Experience launch on November 12th.

However, those with previously-purchased DLC from Xbox 360 titles will be able to download that content from the start, with whichever DLC is tied to the games you own/have previously purchased.

Members of the Xbox One Preview Program can access and manage DLC by going into the “My Games and Apps” tile, selecting a specific title, and then hitting the “Manage Game” from the menu. From there, all available DLC will be show up, allowing users to install DLC and add-on content.

The New Xbox One Experience update will be arriving for Xbox One owners on November 12th, 2015, with the new update bringing the full public rollout of Xbox 360 backwards compatibility.

Wow, just got ranked Onyx 1500 in SWAT. I've always been pretty good at SWAT, had no idea I was that good though. Of course it's early still, I'm sure to drop down to Diamond as more and more people play enough SWAT matches to get ranked, but I'm still pretty pleased with myself regardless.

Look at Amazon. Halo 5 skus at 1, 8, 9, 23, 77. 2 of those are digital codes. Me n my 4 close buddies downloaded the game from the ms store at midnight.

Talk about Amazon, i lol'd to the "reviews" give it 1 star just because no split-screen.

Sure it's a let down for some people, but that doesn't mean it deserve 1 star.
