I love how after E3 the PS4 fan thread has gone almost totally dormant and the XBox thread is active I realize more of that has to do with peek-a-boo being offline coupled with me buying an XBox But it's still funny. It's begun....

@Ryu_Niiyama ....I've created a monster...... Though so did you, I found myself downloading KI, and (from Game Pass for free) SC2, SF4, and Injustice1....and bought the BlazBlue: Somethingorotherlongname port on the sale (which is actually really fun so far from the tutorial.) BTW, discovered a fun thing I didn't realize about the Razer (I don't have mine yet)....it includes a bat top! Nifty!

I guess when you're one of the horseman of the apocalypse you just where whatever the heck you wanna' wear?

@Thanosrexxx ok, I checked my FH3 settings. ABS: OFF. Traction: OFF. Stability: OFF. Steering: Simulation. Trans: Automatic. Racing line: Full. No wonder I'm spinning out. That said I'm surprised I"m doing as well as I am. Almost got 3rd in an offroad buggy cross-country, but messed up right in front of the gate and got pressed back to 5th. Got lot of points for numerous "ultimate clean racing" and "ultimate drift" and "sideswipe" bonuses though Plus the bonus for having fairly high difficulty of controls on.

Probably due to having a dedicated site, Push Square, as opposed to the Xbox site that shut down for lack of traffic or the new one that gets one or 2 comments an article and has no forum lol

Anyone with an original "fat" Xbone, how's it holding up? Does it sound like a hoover vacuum like early ps4s? Any trouble or sluggishness playing newly released games?

Thanks

I've had mine since Christmas 2015. No problems here. Doesn't even seem loud to me (I do have a fan going in my room at all times, but if it's not louder then that, then it's probably not loud at all).

@NEStalgia Yeah, it's a bit of a tit for tat, really. When you're racing with easier settings, it's obviously a more lenient experience, but it'll give you less points for races, so you need to race more, and if you choose harder settings (or just never checked them in the first place, lol), you're going to experience more difficulties with the races, but in return, you get more points.

BUT: it is in complete balance, because on the easier setting, it's obviously much easier to win, so you can rack up successive points more easily, whereas on the higher difficulty setting, you may get rewarded with more points, but chances that you end up with the last three in a race, are decidedly slimmer.

And that point difference is mainly in the actual races, in the stunts or other activities outside of the PvP or player vs AI races, the difference is more or less negligible. So, I'd say switch the first two of those settings you mentioned (ABS and traction) to "ON", and give that a try for a couple of races. If you like it, leave it on, and if not, switch them back off.

But I say leave them on: it might just help you to finally unlock those expansions...

I've had mine since June 2015 and the disc drive has issues. But I have digital versions of all my XB1 games except Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider so it's not too much of an issue.

@DarthNocturnal @Grumblevolcano thanks for answering. There's a launch era one on sale near me. Comes with 2 controllers and kinect for $200 which could probably be negotiated down. Has got me thinking ūü§Ē

I bought an Xbox around E3 as well. I've played more backcompat games than actual Xbone games so far though!

Backwards/forwards compatibility is one of the greatest features of Xbox One. However, for those on Xbox One X you get improved performance, frame rate and sometimes even textures on older games, not to mention that all new games are significantly better on Xbox One X. So both consoles offer the right thing for their respective price. The fat Xbox One and S are now a great deal but Xbox One X is the ultimate console experience if you appreciate performance, high quality textures, and resolution, including supersampling and better anti-aliasing, that you will appreciate even on 1080p displays. All Xbox One consoles give you access to Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games, that's awesome, then you just decide how to play them.

@BlueOcean Downsampling? Super-sampling, surely. That's the added bonus for people on a non-4K screen, who might wonder if, besides the whole better performance thing, it's worth it to get an Xbox One X, if they only have a Full HD TV...

@ThanosReXXX Supersampling, yes. Xbox One X outputs 4K. What if your TV is 1080p? Sea of Thieves is native 4K, the console supersamples 4K to feed your 1080p a super clear image that looks much better than a native 1080p image. On Xbox One/S, Sea of Thieves is 900p. So the difference is 900p vs. native 4K (supersampled to 1080p for 1080p displays).

EDIT: Thanks for correcting my typo.

I hope they announce a date at which Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 will both be actually finished. I'll play them both at that point.

@BlueOcean Don't mention it. Happens to the best of us, but you actually had me wondering there for a second...

P.S.

I know how the super-sampling trick works, so the explanation was kind of a case of preaching to the choir...

@Dezzy Well, Sea of Thieves has a core game that is already well and truly finished, but as long as it remains popular, I reckon they'll keep adding more DLC from time to time.
I suppose that's what you mean with "not ready" (?).

So, if that's the case, then you might never play it, or at least not until 2020 - 2021...

@ThanosReXXX The explanation was not for you, just explaining what the main differences are to the guy interested in the original Xbox One deal. Just wrote your nickname because of the supersampling.

@Dezzy Sea of Thieves performs wonderfully and it's always getting new content so I'd say is more finished than most games this generation.

SoD 2 has gotten several patches since launch, so I'd assume most of the nasty bugs have been patched out.

SoT.... I feel that's gonna be a subjective one. Although it'll be a long while before it's truly finished (i.e.no more updates), everyone's going to have a different idea of how much is “enough“ to add to it before they'll play it.

So many people say Sea of Thieves just lacks a meaningful core game loop.

So I'm assuming some of the additions might help fix that?

Yeah Sea of Theives I found to be incredibly bland from what I played around launch. I'm sure they've polished it a lot since then but left such a bad taste in my mouth doubt I would play again even with it on game pass. Reminded me a lot of No Man's sky at launch. The whole premise of "you create your own fun" just seems extremely flawed imo.

redd214

BlueOcean

@Dezzy @DarthNocturnal Yep, State of Decay 2 has been patched recently. It had serious glitches at launch.

@Dezzy As he said, it's subjective. For me Sea of Thieves right now is a polished game because it performs very well and the world and music is appealing. There's much more now than in the beta and the additional free DLC introduces even more ideas. They are going to include a new volcanic area and enemies later this year.

@BlueOcean

No-one said it wasn't polished. They just said it wasn't remotely fun or interesting for more than a few hours.
