The first listing in that search, for a mere $45, is someone who has sold 276 of them and has a 99.9% rating with over 28,000 feedbacks AND a 30 day return policy. If you don't trust that, tell you what, I'll buy one off of him then test it and sell it to you for $150.

FWIW, $45 is the asking price basically everywhere (B&H, Amazon, Best Buy, etc.), so if you're okay with that price but are leery of eBay, you have no shortage of alternatives.

B&H had them for $37.89 (plus a buck for shipping) a few weeks ago, but it looks like that deal is over.

^ nice. I thought they were still $100 or more at retail, but never actually looked since I have one and it worked fine last time I used it... A few years ago.

You might want to hold off buying a Kinect.

Xbox has just made the Kinect even less relevant.

You can do those voice commands with a headset mic too.

Gone Home was a free PS Plus ages ago. Lame.
On the other hand, wouldn't mind checking out The Turning Test.

Cuphead reviews are out. Seems fairly positive overall, 85 on Metacritic so far.

Just bought Cuphead but it won't install. Looks like MS is having server problems.

I'm having a lot of fun with Cuphead, but man can it be frustrating. Just finished the first isle. As simple as the gameplay is, those graphics and music are just so damn charming.

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

Just spent damn near two hours on a single boss in World 2 in Cuphead. That one was the most frustrating for me. I love the style of this game so damn much, though. It's tough, but generally fair. The music is great, too.

Cuphead is fun and beautiful to look at but damn is it hard. I've only made it through two stages: one of the Run n Gun stages and the boss stage where you fight the vegetables. I tried various others that were open but can't get through them. I think the biggest thing is the fact that you can only get hit three times and there aren't any health fill ups around. I sort of wish it was on Switch so I could play it as a portable. Too bad it's Microsoft exclusive.

Isn't Rayman 3 supposed to be free starting today? It comes up $9.99 for me. Got Gone Home just fine for free...

Yeah, it's a definite issue. I'm seeing the same thing, and tons of people on Twitter are complaining about it.

of course they are. It's a freebie, when MS fixes it, you can still get your Rayman on.

I saw the Rayman thing too when I tried to get it. But yeah, i'm sure it'll be fixed. I'm sure there weren't that many people actually itching to play Rayman 3 today anyway.

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

I am finding how nice my Switch plays with my TV, turning it on and off automatically, even changing it to the correct HDMI port.

Does the Xbox One have the ability to directly interact with a Sony TV through HDMI to turn it off and on when the console is turned on and off, without Kinect/IR blaster? I'm asking before I put any more time into trying to get it to work through Googling, messing with settings, etc.

Edit: just got word back from Xbox support, and the system cannot do the above.
