    MS is shutting down Mixer, and partnering with Facebook

    in Microsoft Discussion on 14 July 2020

    I thought it was strange and sad. I did notice that not many people were watching though. Still surprised as online gaming has a big future and they invested a bunch of money capturing expensive streamers. I preferred Beam! I thought it sounded much more interesting. With Mixer I didn't really know how to search for games - don't make me brows or I will just leave. Facebook Gaming? ...

    Original Xbox or Xbox 360?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 14 July 2020

    The Xbox 360. It was really something special and innovative. Dual CPUs was not that common, and there they were coming out with a tri core processor? On a Game Machine? Crazy. Plus, I thought Kinect was innovated (we now have Alexia and OK Google, and all those filters (ah la KinectTV Party) etc.) I think they should have held back the Xbox One for a year and had it ready when it came...

    Games that won you over

    Crackdown! I never would have purchased it, just wasn't on my radar, but came out as one of the free games if you subscribe, and I've enjoyed it so much. It even had me excited for Crackdown 3 the first twenty times I thought it was coming out. ...

    Donald Trump: How Do You Feel about Him Now? (Poll)

    in Politics Discussion on 06 August 2018

    He is actually being a bigger failure than I thought. And I had very low expectations of him and really didn't think he would be elected. The damage he is doing to Science, Environment, Climate, Health Care, Education, the Economy, Trade, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties, and the dangers he is putting in the USA court systems is going to take many years to undo. I'm baffled when people...

    Worldwide Xbox One sales dropped below Xbox 360 in 2017

    in Microsoft Discussion on 09 February 2018

    Shadow1980 said: ... And Zhuge is right that the XBO's surplus in the U.S. will vanish as well. The 360's fifth full year was 2010, the year the 360 S was released, and that caused 360 sales to skyrocket. Just to keep from being down LTD vs. the 360 by the end of this year, the XBO will have to sell at least 5.27M for the whole year. That's a YoY increase of 23.3%. That's simply not going...

    Gameware Stops Selling Xbox Systems in Reaction to Recent Game Pass Announcement

    in Microsoft Discussion on 09 February 2018

    I can see how they wouldn't want to sell the hardware - as they are going to be losing out on the games. But I think it's inevitable, and have for years. People like to argue 'I like to hold the game in my hand.' And I get that, but I think it's going the way of music, movies, TV shows, newspapers, magazines, and most other media. Games will be going all digital, like they have been on...

    I used to be an Xbox hater

    in Microsoft Discussion on 09 February 2018

    I thought it was really weird when they announced they were coming out with a console (not realize how they worked on the DreamCast and other games.) But I think two of their consoles really pushed gaming technology and advancements. In my opinion console makers would be slowly adding tech if Microsoft had not pushed them with the Xbox and 360. PC would be so far ahead of them down, they...

    Signs of being old?

    in General Discussion on 09 February 2018

    Looking older stuck, and there is some you can do to slow some of it down, but its inevitable. Now I'm a little vain, so when I met people recently who I was younger than, but they thought I was young, it felt good. They may have been saying it to make me feel better, but it worked. The awful part about getting older is everything aches and hurts. You make those groaning noise when you get...

    Microsoft ditches Windows 10 S in favour of a new S Mode

    What do you rather have: Scorpio in 2017 or real Xbox 2 in 2018

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 June 2017

    I'd rather go with Scorpio. We have yet to see how it works, and what it can do. Impressive on paper, but the real world is what we need to see. Plus I would rather see the next Xbox make a bigger jump above Scorpio that just a few tweaks and 4 more gigs of RAM. ...
