@NEStalgia Well, you never guessed what happened to me:
For the first time EVER, I actually managed to damage an Xbox 360 controller, namely the wired one that
I use when playing Pro Evo Soccer on the PC. I apparently pressed the right bumper a bit too hard in my
anxiety to keep my player running/sprinting past his opponents, and I felt a little snap inside the controller housing, and now the right bumper is hanging loose inside the controller's casing...

Was quite a nasty surprise to me, since that has never happened before, and I've quite frequently used the sprint function in the game, so it's not like I did something to the controller that I've never done before.

Oh, well. There's probably an option to buy a replacement part somewhere, so all in all, not too much of a problem, but nonetheless weird that it happened so suddenly...

@ThanosReXXX Congrats! Welcome to the club!

Technically it probably didn't break all at once....it was probably weakening bit by bit all the other times and finally gave way. It's more infamous on the Elite because of the heavy aluminum bumper buttons, but yeah, the plastic bridge joining the bumpers is an infamously failure prone part. I told you I wasn't making this stuff up

You should be able to find a replacement part easy enough since the Elites lose a lot of bridges, and I think it's the same part. Just search for Elite bumper repairs if you're having a hard time finding it. It should work for both

That's less awful than stick drift since the stick can't be replaced without soldering a new POT module on.

I would like to ask you something.

How would you feel if at E3 2019, you learn that you could play Nintendo games on an XBOX system ?

Great news ? Bad News ?

Let me know guys.

In what universe would an Xbox player think Nintendo games is bad news.

Now, if you ask this on the switch thread, then maybe that would be amusing.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I'd think that some Xbox owners that don't own a Nintendo system, but would like to play their games, would really like that, but for me, as a multi-platform owner, playing my Nintendo games on anything other than an actual Nintendo system, would feel kinda strange or off, because it's all about the controls as well, and Nintendo has a knack for combining both gameplay and controls into one complete experience, one that you can only find on Nintendo's systems, so playing that on another system would seem weird to me.

But that's just my opinion on the matter...

Would be fine by me. Granted I personally wouldn't play Nintendo games on an Xbox but the masterpieces they make should be played by as many as possible so I wouldn't consider it "bad news" at all.

@ThanosReXXX has it right. Imo no company has ever been better at meshing hardware/software better than the big N.

Microsoft is Almost NEVER know about Cutesy games.
If it does, it looks like put some Hello Kitty tatoos on OMG HD Realistic looking characters from adult games.
Not a good chemistry.

Nintendo games on Xbox machine = Home Console only, No Portability. Not good....

"but for me, as a multi-platform owner,"

But....
You don't play any Sony machines (PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, PSP, PS vita), right ? 😛

I don't really consider Super Lucky's Tail as “OMG HD Realistic“. Same with Ori and Cuphead (although they were developed by other studios. Of course, MS struck a distribution deal with both, so they clearly saw merit in them).

Hopefully we get a new Banjo before too long. Developed by Rare or no.

@Anti-Matter And what exactly do you think that multi-platform owner means? I have nearly all Nintendo consoles and handhelds, a Sega Dreamcast, an Xbox 360, an Xbox One S and I also play games on PC.

Just because someone doesn't have any Sony consoles, doesn't mean he or she isn't a multi-platform gamer...

@redd214 That's also because of their philosophy of first creating games and/or experiences, and then, and ONLY then, figuring out what kind of hardware they will need, to realize/achieve that idea, so the hardware is specifically built around, and tailored to the games. And that for me, would create a disconnect, when playing them on another platform, especially with other controllers.

Both Sony and Microsoft always just go for a huge sandbox full of room and power, that isn't specifically related to any single game, and instead they just come up with a minimum and a maximum target, and the hardware needs to be able to cater to everything, or at least most things. This often times comes from them talking to developers, who tell them what they need. Both philosophies have their pros and cons, but personally, I like Nintendo's better, because it creates a complete experience, whereas any of the games on both of the other consoles could be played on either of them without losing any of the original intent of those games.

It has always been a part of Nintendo's philosophy in general, but Iwata and Miyamoto put even more emphasis on it, and it really shows, ever since the birth of the GameCube.

@DarthNocturnal He literally hasn't got a clue, he's just prejudiced.

Thanks to you people.

So now, I have something else to ask.

How would you react if the next system from Microsoft would be a "Nintend'BOX" ?
Imagine a collab' between MS and BigN. To make it simple, MS brings the power and the online network that Nintendo doesn't have and, in return, Nintendo brings the Japanese market + the IPs to MS.

How would you react on that ?

Keep an eye on the GDC. March 18-22 2019.

https://www.gdconf.com

Microsoft would prepare a new SDK to facilitate the Xbox Live services on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, something already effective internally with Minecraft (from where the fact that you can unlock success even on the Nintendo console), but this time will be accessible for third-party and independent publishers.

We should obviously be hearing about this next month during the GDC, and this may be an opportunity to formalize the rumor of an arrival of titles like Ori and the Blind Forest and Switch Cuphead, as well as the famous case of Xbox Game Pass via xCloud.

According to Windows Central sources, the SDK would cover the following things:

  • Access to the Xbox Live account
  • Success
  • Cross-play & Cross-save
  • Cross-Buy in the case of micro-transactions and DLC

Are Microsoft forgetting that exclusive games are the main reason people buy consoles in the first place?

If every single one of their exclusives is on PC, and the lower spec games are on Switch, why should I buy the next Xbox console?
There's no reason to. I'll almost definitely get the PS5 instead.

That said, I'm glad this new rumor maintains their original claim that Halo Infinite will be cross-gen. I want that running on my current Xbox.

@Dezzy They won't care much, though. On the one hand, there will always be people that either want to remain exclusively on Xbox, so these will buy a console or an online subscription anyway, and I can practically guarantee you that if Project xCloud does indeed come to the Switch, that masses of people will take a subscription for that too, so on the other hand, their plan to go more into the direction of Games as a Service will also bear more than enough fruit for them, so it's win-win for them, no matter which scenario is going to actually be true.

And Phil Spencer has already said that, for the coming generation at least, there will still be a physical console for people who prefer that, so we can choose either streaming or local play. It's more choices, which is always a good thing.

The combination Xbox/Switch will ultimately be a VERY interesting one, in my opinion, if the whole "streaming Xbox games on Switch through Project xCloud" actually turns out to be true.
