Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

pretty safe to say i will no longer need One and Kinect for anything, correct?

my friend wants it and i told him i'll just give it to him, but want to make sure there is no earthly reason to keep One. figured it is since not like 360 where all 360 games are not backwards compatible, thus still needing 360 for that one game i previously talked about. but less is more.

i threw away my N64 this weekend (well, still outside waiting for morning pickup actually). that made me a little sad, but i'll never hook up or play those games again of which i still had a few and with Rare Replay collection it makes no sense and Mario game wasn't that compelling. Sunshine or whatever.

Only interested in Conker's Bad Fur Day and I tried that twice, but didn't stick with for long for whatever reason.

Also, took apart GameCube connection. can still hook up in future with ease though, but Series X is really all i need now.

is there any chance those previous XBOX 360 games would become backwards compatible now because of new system or still not going to be if it wasn't on One?

You shouldn't throw away things like that. You could have donated it. They're also selling for like $80+.

True. I just wanted to get rid of a bunch of junk in one fell swoop. Next time, I promise. But no reason to keep One right?

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Two scenarios:

1) You want to still have access to Kinect games.

2) You could connect the XB1 to a TV in another room (or another house!) so a significant other/friend/kid/whatever could play multiplayer games with you. In theory, thatís what my wife and I are doing with our old XB1S downstairs, although the first and only game we ever did that with was Anthem two years ago. (Okay, and the Avengers beta that she wound up hating.)

Nope. Just beat that thing with a baseball bat and put it out of it's misery. Don't donate it, don't give it away... smash it to bits so a garbage truck doesn't get all the fun.

bought that one Kinect game, Sports or something. played it once (really only the bowling). showed some people it. haven't played since. this was years ago. don't care about multiplayer or really wouldn't play anywhere else. but, this is for his kid, so i am very inclined to just give him it flat out...

Why would you throw away a perfectly good gaming system?

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

I feel like I want every X/S on my internal, but it took up like 90%. Man, that was quick. I know I needed to delete and did, so itís just under 70%, but why should I have had to worry? Why such a small storage drive, regardless of its speed?

Since MS owns Bethesda (could be Xbox exclusive), and there is no specific thread for the game..
Starfield may launch this year: https://www.gamesradar.com/bethesda-...field-in-2021/

How much did you want this thing to cost? And if money isn't an issue, buy the expansion.

i figured with all the other improvements, they could have come up with something for internal storage by now.

it's ridiculous in this day and age to pay for more storage and now external storage won't even run the optimized games the way they are supposed to like on the internal and the additional is freaking almost half the cost of the system itself and only gives you 1GB more, granted SSD, which apparently is good or better, i dunno.

what's the fucking point? they should have given at least 2 GB @ $550.00 with tax. i know $$ for MS, but at this stage of the game they have their loyal followers and i would think a nice internal storage, at least more than PS5, would add new PS defectors.

i'm sorry, but it wasn't ever an issue until now. sure, we buy external for One, but they were cheap and can buy a lot of storage if need be and didn't affect performance. this only buys 1GB SSD and have to get it at, what, $220? for only 1GB, that you need to play all games optimized for Series X to my understanding. granted, i am sure not as thorough as you all.

but, i can't be the only one that thinks it a little vexing to have to even think about internal storage in 2021 and whatever generation that will most likely last a few years.

and the reason i wouldn't buy is, obviously bc i can just install and move or something. it does hold around 10-11 games, i believe. i certainly don't play even more than 1 usually, but currently Hitman and Cyberpunk. just can't make up mind which i want to pursue more. they are, of course, very different, but CP is FPS and i love that, but have been loving Hitman and never thought so much in a game in my eternal life. i don't even think i think that much in real world

i'm more lazy now that i have Alexa, but i'm not that bad. i mean for it to know what channel on my Optimum cable, and knows the city, is Nickelodeon or ESPN or ABC or any channel in my lineup. if i can manage to pronunciate correctly, it knows exactly what # channel ESPN is. i mean if i said go to channel 25 (which is CNN), i can understand bc just numbers, but i can say go to CNN. that is wild...

I thought the normal one includes Series X? Do they even sell an Xbox One only version?

I played the Series version about an hour ago without issue.

And yes, there are separate generation versions.

For some reason I couldn't find a version of Madden 21 that didn't come with a free upgrade to the Series X version.

On Twitter, do this:


It'll be annoying at first, because he tweets deals about all sorts of stuff, but when the good shit hits, take action. I've seen him tweet about console availability quite a bit.
