  1. Because the strategy of offering a cheaper entry point to next gen will sign more people up? The strategy is to get you to pay them £11 a month. How does offering two price points obscure the central message of Gamepass? The whole thing is about offering choice in platform (Xbox, PC, Xcloud) so why would two consoles work against this? The console is the tool for subscriptions, not the other way around.
  2. Just checked. With a USB adapter you could also use a PS2 pad on the PS3 without issue. PS4 works with PS3 so the functions are there but the PS4 firmware locks out the controller. So the real defence of this is "Why are you complaining? Sony have only let you use old controllers on 50% of their consoles until they arbitrarily locked the feature to sell accessories."
  3. PS1 Dual Shocks worked on PS2. Super useful when we played big round robin's of Pro Evo and needed multiple controllers. If I remember correctly the pressure sensitive face buttons didn't work but that was it.
  4. For some reason my Dad has begun religiously watching Neighbours now he is 84 and waiting for death. Toadie is now a solicitor and was defending the teenager who got caught disposing of drugs she found at her boyfriend's party by the local cop who lives next door and arrested her for trafficking because it was above the limit for possession BUT then Karl (who is also still in it), who is the girl's grandad had a word with his new wife who runs the spa who spoke to the desk sergeant who then got her released which raised the suspicions of the cop who arrested her that something dodgy was going on, and THEN the wife of the sergeant came to Karl's hotel for a spa treatment and wanted it free which makes the whole thing look dodgy and the episode ended with Karl's wife telling him that she "Has accidentally bribed a police officer". I don't know what happened after that. The last time I visited my parents Denise Van Outen was in it, and she was fucking dreadful. One of the adverts during it was for a service for old people to register their cats with so they can be rescued when you die and get left to be eaten by your cat. This suggests that my Dad is not the only old person watching this shit and that this is their intended audience. My Mum thinks it is rubbish. Bare in mind she has Dementia and is barely cognizant of the real world so you can imagine how shit it is.
  5. So Microsoft only got £1 off you, except the three years of Live Gold you bought to maximise the deal.
  6. I cannot fathom some of the complete cock written in this thread. What the fuck do some of you want? That was as good a games presentation I can remember for a good few years. Blows the Sony thing away and made me want to play nearly everything they showed, which I will with my subscription for no extra money. Why the fuck would I buy a PS5 after that? Because they're going to release a gussied up PS3 game in two years? Hot Spider-Man DLC? A GT game coming in the next decade, hopefully with a single player mode and cars rendered above a modem speed jpeg download this time? And Microsoft still have half their teams to announce more games coming as well. Compulsion, inExile, Coalition, Initiative...all missing today. Great show.
  8. It is certainly brave for Microsoft to get someone to make a preshow to their big event that amounts to a succession of cunts from YouTube all slagging off the Halo series of the last ten years and talking about how the first one was good but... Halo Infinite better be fucking mint or they should ask for their money back.
  9. Truly top level trolling would be to announce that the 360 version of GTA5 will be backwards compatible on day one with 4K/HDR patch. Peter Moore would've done it.
  10. One. Versus. One. Hundred. Two. Walk offstage. Sony closes business by the end of today.
  11. I studied Linguistics. S and X are separate consonant clusters and if you pronounce them the same way you should get speech therapy. There are a lot of people in this thread who continue to embarrass themselves in public in a most disconcerting way. I know the average age of some of you is now pushing the point at which you should be left on a secluded tundra for the good of the community but at least try to keep up with the world around you. I never thought my reaffirming shot of self-confidence today to make myself aware of my great intellectual capacity would be the ability to read two separate letters in the Latin alphabet and understand how to read a Box cover. I'll save Ulysses for tomorrow. My nephew understands this. He is 12.
  12. A lot of people here need to go back and play Zoo Tycoon. It's on Game Pass and it's fantastic. Also Amped 3 launched with the 360. That is a real launch banger. Best Hand Puppet FMV of the generation.
  13. Forza Horizon 4 is incredible. You people are the wrongest anyone has ever been in this forum, including trolls.
  14. If, as would be the case in a just world, I were to be elevated to become a new Stalin figure in complete ideological control of the hemisphere, those Easy Allies cunts would all be digging their own graves in a frozen hellhole eating their own shattered fingers. Utter cunts, all of them. Anyone who listens to them is simple.
  15. They should have just called it Xbox. But the lawyers and Brand Managers would have thrown a fit about trademarks and word marks and I understand why they needed something else in the name. X for the big one, S for the small one works ok.
  16. Exactly. Not confusing at all. The dearer one is better. It really isn't hard.
  17. There will be two consoles. One is more expensive than the other one. That is the better one. If you can afford that, you will buy that one. If not you will buy the cheaper one. They play the same games, but the more expensive one plays them better. That's it. Too many people in these threads think they're some elite group of übermensch. Everyone here is just as much of a thick cunt as everyone else. If people get confused they will ask the internet and find out which one to buy like you do when you buy something. The PS5 being two SKUs is just as confusing and requires the same amount of research as two Xboxes.
  18. Only played an hour or so but Night Call could not have made a better impression. If you like the Sherlock games and French noir, with a side order of ambient dark Jazz, it seems a real winner. It helps that I am reading the Red Riding Quartet at the moment I suppose, but that moody 'You are alone and being manipulated by powerful forces ' feeling is strong.
  19. I think the big Xbox games in 2022 will be Series X only. I will be absolutely amazed, AMAZED, if Game exists in 2022. I give them 50/50 to make 2021. I don't know anyone in my circle of friends who has bought a disc game in the last two+ years outside of dirt cheap CEX stuff. And they are PS4 only people since most Xbox people I know just stick to Game Pass for older stuff. I have bought more discs than anyone else I know, and all of them are 360 games I picked up for £2. Any Xbox I buy in the future will have a drive exclusively for those 360 games.
  20. Let's be honest, by the time there are no Xbox One games being made boxes will be as quaint as Walkmans. Our Game on the high street went just before Lockdown and most of the rest of them won't be far behind. As it stands now my only option to buy a physical game is from CEX or buy one from Amazon, where I could also buy a download. And I live in a city.
  21. Considering the current goings on in the world of wrestling let's hope not.
  22. Both the new machines will be launching in the middle of full Brexit: Yes, we really mean it now season and the pound will be worth less than cat litter by that point. If either console is priced lower than the Euro cost in Sterling both Sony and Microsoft are being incredibly generous. Not least because when we go on WTO no deal terms the import cost to the UK will go through the roof.
  23. I think the fact that Sony's big console reveal began with a remastered game, the big game (so far only 1st party game of note) is a gussied up PS4 game and Demon's Souls was one of the premier announcements should cast less certainty about that. I think it is also interesting that days after Sony announce multiple remastered games and expansions without mentioning any cross support Microsoft do a big press release trumpeting Smart Delivery. Certainly has the feel of a company knowing that they have an advantage and pushing it.
  24. But after a year or two of dust collecting in the rotors, quiet fans inevitably become loud fans.
  25. All Microsoft accounts are single log in so if she has a working Hotmail then that will work.
