We are excited and proud to announce that now, in addition to playing MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries on PC, it will also be available on the XBox Series X|S and XBox One. This will be the first MechWarrior title on a console since 2004's MechAssault 2, and in our opinion, the first true MechWarrior experience ever on a console.

Spring 2021.

This is cool but honestly, I kind of wish Microsoft would stop licensing out FASA IP (IIRC Jordan Weisman has exclusive licensing to Shadowrun and Crimson Skies, while Piranha has exclusive licensing to MechWarrior) and instead bring them under XGP.

Reason being, Microsoft firstly gets more control, they can guarantee Xbox release alongside PC, also licensing takes away any effort on Microsoft's part and just leaves it up to the developer to fund it, I would instead like to see Microsoft invest in the IP themselves (Piranha and Jordan can keep exclusive rights but I just want Xbox to get more involved in funding).

Mechwarrior 5 is on PC Game Pass (at least it was).

But this is fantastic news, played a lot of Mechwarrior 2 and 3 as a kid. 2021 just got better :)



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

He liked a comment asking if one is about 343. 😬

Sucks for 343, said they'd have good news for the end of the year too, Lol.

It's insane how huge Supraland is and how complex the puzzles can be.

If you like puzzle platformers you should definitely try it. Reminds me a lot of Portal in some way (and Grounded visually).

Yeah took me a long time to 'complete it'  end up getting all the chests I atleast recommend trying to get it.  Also one tip if you finish the game you will unlock more super powers that are insanely usefull for completionists, recommend not looking stuff up.






Confirmed it uses the same engine as A Plague Tale: Innocence.

Frankly I don’t trust Schreier’s investigative journalism anymore, he has been caught straight up lying about Cyberpunk in his investigative pieces about it, caught lying multiple times now, was caught lying about Rocksteady’s game a couple years ago too. So if Schreier comes out saying that Infinite’s development is still crappy even after they split multiplayer and singleplayer development and brought in Staten to lead singleplayer, I wouldn’t trust it.



Xbox Series 2nd week numbers in Japan:

Xbox Series X – 3,026 (19,273)
Xbox Series S – 658 (4,945)

Both still sold out I hear, sold out within a couple hours of restock this week, a good sign for sure. Hopefully MS gets them a larger shipment soon, I hear there was only a small Series X shipment on 3rd week so far with no plans for more until later.

Was the Xbox one ever sold out in Japan?

Xbox one itself was never sold out, some of the first shipment bundles took over 1 year to sold out (there were other bundles in the meantime).

Xbox one X did sold out, but it shipped very few consoles at first. like 1/2Kish 



  • After deduplication*, there are a total of 382 unique Game Pass games, out of which 43 can only be played on PC;

  • The average Metacritic score of all GP games (PC+Console) is 77.9. The median Metacritic score of all GP games is 79;

  • 44.5% of all Gamepass games (170/382) are 80+ Metacritic (which will be my criteria for “good” here). 17.5% of all Gamepass games (67/382) are 85+ Metacritic;

  • 38% of GP games are indies**. Indies actually weigh down the total MC score (Indies MC=76.27, non-Indies MC=78.79). There are 47 “good” Indies and 123 “good” non-Indies on Gamepass (PC+Xbox);

  • Xbox GP is currently better value than PC GP if you have to choose, since it gives you more “good” games (148 versus 86) worth more money if you were to buy them*** (€2,589 vs €2,046). This will change next month as EA Play PC gets added;

  • If you have Xbox GP, getting a PC brings you 22 additional “good” games (+14.8%) that you wouldn’t be able to play otherwise (this does not take into account games that are better on PC);

  • 75.1% of GP Games are from the Xbox One Generation, the rest split between 360, OG and PC;

  • Adding EA Play games actually increased the overall offer’s Metascore since EA Play games have an average MC of 78.38.

  • It would cost you €3,203.84 to buy all 80+ games of GamePass today, taking into account the current Black Friday sale. That’s the equivalent of over 20 years of Gamepass Ultimate subscription. It would cost you €1,329.76 to buy all 85+ games (over 8 years of GPU).
