Halo

Haven't noticed this mentioned (mainly because I'm not reading back through all the drivel) but Zavvi are throwing an extra game in if you order from them. You get a choice of Forza, Dead Rising 3, Ryse or Zoo Tycoon apparently. Nicked from HotUKdeals.

More and more tempting !!! JUst need some overtime to pay for it...

How much is gold now? Still gettable for £30 ?

Cos all titanfall bundles are great til you think "oh bugger add on £30"

But extra game in this pack cancels that out

hack? is that what they're calling "burglary" these days?

Has someone burgled a warehouse of "refurbished" or "returns" because the auctions have pics of many if them in in uniform cardboard boxes.

Almost as if someone managed to get hold of returned units... Which means obviously they are very dodgy

What's this hack that allows you to get a console only? Just been offered a console & kinect for $50 gotta buy the pad and powerbrick myself. There's tonnes of consoles on ebay reckon it's worth a punt?

I know of a couple of successful 'punts' so if you're asking if:

1: it works - Yes

2: it's Legal - possibly not

But then again it's an XBO for £50. You can also use the powerbrick from the X360 slim if you have one of those.

Given another eBay listing it seems some are claiming its some returns thing where they send in faulty one and somehow manage to get two back and then they sell the spare... They claim its a one off but maybe there is a scam way of doing it

Either way if i was offered one for £50 I might be tempted but these go for 200 on eBay, think I might prefer a legit one for a few quid more

There's too much of it. I think they were going to a rhythm like Assault on the Control Room but the ratio of standard shooting to set pieces was off IMO.

Can't say I noticed that. The only thing that bugged me about that level were the rocket launching flood who could kill you instantly. Bastards.

They said the lack of Kinect voice commands was the reason why they delayed most of the Euro-markets. the last rumour for the Nordic region was Q3 2014, Microsoft either aren't bothered to enter the race, too busy firefighting or supremely confident, you decide.

RE: Halo 2, the reason it outsold the original significantly and kept on selling like it thought it was a game released by Nintendo was the multiplayer, the only part of the package that Bungie have ever managed to improve on from the original. Several classic maps to play, splitscreen and online play to boot, loved playing invisible rockets on the secret level. It was the same with Halo 3, campaign mode was a grab-bag greatest hits homage from the earlier games, it was at least serviceable enough to complete linearly, the online multiplayer was where it shone.

Been offered a used bone with cod and an extra pad for £350 locally, receipt included. What you reckon? Fancy trying the bone

Strip out the game and extra pad, the console is effectively about £270-£300, brand new is effectively about £350-£360 at the moment. If you think that saving is worth it for a mildly used unit, why not. pretty long odds on Microsoft having to slash the price by another £100 within a year.

yep I think i'm going for it. I will keep the second pad and pick up fifa 14, but will sell Ghosts as no interest really so its a decent price. i will then buy titanfall at some stage - KI looks like something I'd love too. Has receipt too so hopefully no issues if it goes wrong. i cant see it reducing down much more to be honest. is it worth sticking my virgin tivo box through it?

Feeling a bit tipsy and that quote by Harsin made my blood boil.

MS just treat their customers like complete idiots. And that appears to be the entire design philosophy behind the whole xbox one project. Which is why most of us hate it so much. And no amount of back peddling is gonna fix that.

I thought I might crack when a new halo appeared, but I genuinely don't think I can ever bring myself to buy one the more I learn about it.

It's a proper turnaround isn't it? Although I was a massive Wii fan last gen was all about 360 for me when it came to the hardcore console games. It was such a brilliant machine with the best traditional controller ever. I did get a PS3 but it was barely used for a looong time. Nowadays it's PS3 by default (thanks to PS+), my Live sub has long been cancelled and for some reason I want a PS4 despite it having no games. MS done fucked up.

Same here, apart from being a fan of the Wii. This gen will be about the PC, Wii U and PlayStation 4 for me, the bone can get fucked.

Are people really throwing a wobbly over ads for an election that doesn't exist in this country and you won't see? That generated no fuss the first time around in 2008?

It's weird to see people say "oh no ads, I'll play on PS4". You do know PS4 has ads integrated all over its activity feed too, right?

I'm looking forward to the day when Nap, Pickford and Angel crack and buy a bone ;)

Which may be coincidentally tempered by Neg's crowing that Kinect has been removed.

That time may well come if the console gets cheaper, preferably dumps Kinect and has some killer exclusives out which aren't in the online FPS genre. But I don't think there's a chance the Bone will ever become my main console. I'd rather upgrade my PC for the indie and multiplatform stuff, get a PS4 for PS4/console exclusives and maybe multiplatform stuff and won't consider a Bone until it has enough pricedrops and exclusives to make me forget the bad taste it has put in my mouth from its initial unveiling up until today. I've been disappointed about every single aspect of the machine and Microsoft's attitude.
