  1. The price label on the Columns box is from Computer Leisure Centre - I immediately recognised it since that's where half my CPC and MD games came from. I don't think it was a chain, so I can tell you that cart was originally purchased from 117 High Street, Orpington, Kent.
  2. I wouldn't worry, they won't deign to make enough so you can actually buy one.
  3. I reckon there's been heavy discussions this week about how low they can go. £449 for the version with disc drive and £369 for the version without, and they'll take a loss to keep momentum up. While the PS4 has been really successful this generation, at the moment it feels like Microsoft is moving forwards a bit faster and blurring the edges of the generations - and as Sony know from their experience with the PS3, any slow down at the start of the generation can take years to recover from.
  4. I think you misunderstand me. I am not arguing that is how it is currently set up; but I am arguing that that is not how it needs to be set up. Sorry, reading it back I wasn't clear. Full backwards compatibility, if if only with discs and existing purchases, would be an excellent selling point for the console. If that meant that the XsX had to be able to access the "Xbox 360 store" to validate purchases, then so be it.
  5. Are they really though? Let's say I buy a copy of Burnout Revenge off the Microsoft Store - that isn't console specific. And they could even restrict it to games that you bought on disc, or buy on the previous console online store, if they had a general enough emulator.
  6. There were a lot of people who took Microsoft's original announcements as meaning that every game from all previous generations would work. This could have been the case if it was true backwards compatibility - that is, making the XsX/XsS act as an Xbox/360/One when the appropriate disc was inserted. After all, there were no licensing issues when looking at DS to 3DS compatibility - both for game carts and dowloads - or Wii to Wii U, or PS to PS2. It's only because Microsoft aren't using the original game data and are modifying it in some way within the game files that this whole issue aris

    I can't see that - where are you seeing it?
  8. After DVD Burner Blue Screen of the Dead Total Warza Horizon
  9. Antstream to be rebranded as "Sega Classics plus some other games on other formats", and have all Sega-published MS, MD, Saturn and DC games available. With downloads, not streaming.
  10. Why is Spiderman the flagship title for PSNow? Paying £9 a month to play a game that you could buy outright in Tesco a few weeks ago for £13?
  11. Why haven't you got Piczle Colors?
  12. Would Currys Digital not send you the replacement first, so you can transfer everything across including the AC save, and then you can send the faulty machine back afterwards? Amazon did this when my original switch developed a fault with the SD card slot.
  13. The thing is, this game was really built around the online side. You get challenges throughout the laps based on other people's performance. On time trials it shows you a nearby time and ghost. The club part of the name was a huge part - even if the size of the clubs was a bit too small, it meant you could team up together to compete. Once the online part is turned off, it's going to be a much lesser game. And that puts me off buying anything similar in the future.
