It doesn’t help that there are so few first-party Xbox games to buy! The last one for me was Halo Infinite at the end of 2021. I would’ve bought Hi-Fi Rush if it hadn’t been digital-only and Psychonauts 2 if the physical edition had been day-and-date. Flight Simulator might’ve made for a good gift, though I wouldn’t buy it for myself.

I would’ve thought about a physical Forza Horizon 5 if the price were right and if my wife were as into it as she was 2, 3, and 4.

Good...yet sad...video from Rhyker here who normally covers a lot on Diablo Games and Blizzard...but in this segment he mainly covers the MS Layoffs, who was hit, departures of key personnel at Blizzard and the effects of Layoffs throughout the Gaming Industry.....it's eye opening, hits home and yes, sad.....well worth watching....pay no attention of the title...a bit misleading....

MS info, nothing new.

Lots of good info on Palworld, didn't bother watching the Diablo 4 part.

Re: Microsoft buying Activision/Blizzard

The first part of the video is all about Blizzard and he brings up some good points...mainly it seems a lot of...core Blizzard people....who came up and was part of Blizzard way back...are and have been slowly leaving....mainly about the New President which is from....Activision....not within Blizzard. Also touches on Blizzard and other gaming layoffs which are really sad.....



As to the elimination of Physical Media....it's well know it won't exactly go away right away....BUT....a few XBox Insider Video have pointed out based on leaks on future plans and Series X Consoles, there is NO Physical Media Present...it's based on All Digital so.....
