  1. I just had a go last night, what was supposed to be a quick look at it ended up me continuing on for about an hour after the guy I had been doing some missions with went to bed. I could see myself getting back into it, i played a lot of the first one, but the stats and specialisations feel overwhelming at this point. The menu system even seems unfriendly.
  2. I think so too. I assume it'll be lower res, shorter draw distance, less effects but still at it's core the same game. I wouldn't bet on framerate not being 60 throughout though. Interesting what you say about point of reference. I played the original Titanfall recently. I pumped hours into it and was really surprised how rough it looked. I remember it looking fine.
  3. I read online that those parts are supposed to represent the halo having been damaged and those areas are construction/ repair sites. If that's correct then, I assume so.
  4. Time to buy that tent and start camping out. Of course, the next question is, I wonder how it'll look on Series Consoles.
  5. Looks good, I wonder how it'll look on Xbox One.
  6. I'm surprised the case of Control and it's lack of next gen upgrade passed you by, it's been spoken about extensively. People on both Xbox and Playstation who bought the standard edition have been locked out by 505 games. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-08-20-control-publisher-refuses-to-budge-despite-next-gen-upgrade-backlash 505 games played it perfectly, those players who bit the bullet and resentfully bought Control for the second time on PS5 were treated to a free copy of the ultimate edition on PSN shortly afterwards. As someone who sat on the ultimate e

    It Takes Two

    My girlfriend and I have got through most of A Way Out (I think we must be near the end anyway). This new game looks good, but I think it'd be far too stressful. For both of us.
  8. It's a bit blurry with Ultimate though.
  9. I think the Xbox one was sold at break even but the series X is definitely being sold at a loss, but I assume as time goes by the components get cheaper. I think you're right that games are by far the lion's share of the money.
  10. If you're Nintendo, why do you want your customers to give Microsoft money, which they'll give you a cut of, when you could just sell them Mario Kart and keep all the money? The switch is so successful, what does Gamepass offer them, that they actually need?
  11. I think it's more nuanced than that, certainly the sales of Sony's first party exclusives aren't the biggest sellers on the platform, but they do drive the most engaged parts of the audience which feeds to the more casual parts of the market. As Don Mattrick said (IIRC) "first to a million installed consoles, wins" (or similar).
  12. Every time a company reaches dominance if they do stuff people don't like, they go elsewhere. Get a second job, etc. etc. I can't imagine Gamepass encompassing all software - there'll be places to play games without getting onboad with Gamepass. Nintendo aren't going anywhere for a start.
  13. Yes, a publisher could refuse to have their game on gamepass, you are correct as far as I'm aware. However, I stand by the idea that Bethesda / Zenimax, who have already had titles on Gamepass, would have allowed Microsoft to pay for their titles to be on gamepass earlier in the game's life for less money than Microsoft put down to buy the company.
  14. If Microsoft wanted to put those games on Gamepass, they could do it without buying the company. If they wanted to sell games to PlayStation owners, they'd make a lot by putting Halo on PlayStation. And yet, they did buy the company and they haven't put Halo on PlayStation. I think Boozy's summation is correct.
  15. In short, yes. I personally am not bothered about getting a new emblem, skin for a weapon or whatever, but I like that it makes the multiplayer have an aim or target. Tbh, I think Apex Legends does it best by giving you a series of level boosting challenges (use particular characters or guns) to push your level along. I can get that some won't like it at all, but it's worth noting that while the battle pass costs some virtual currency, I was given the currency I used by playing the game and the battle pass gives you more credits than it costs if you complete it.
