@ThanosReXXX If "stability" is a euphemism for "no longer hammers your HDD spindle motor 1000+ times a day" I'm all for stability

@NEStalgia Ha, in Nintendo's case, it's probably just code for "anti-piracy measures"...

Interesting, so I was watching my HDD last night and it seems at least temporarily after the latest system update, the behavior has changed again. Favorably (more or less) but could be even worse later if it flares up again. For the moment, it looks like it is not spinning up the drive (only if using the official Game Hub) when it activates but has returned to that "safe neutral" of just turning he light and the controller on without actuating the motors. But on the flip side it now turns on for 30 seconds, off for 40 seconds non-stop. If that turns into HDD actuations again sometime that will be 2500+ power-ons a day, easily eating an HDD a month. So for now it's better than it was last week, but with the potential to be catastrophic if it flares up again (and it periodically seems to...)

It's actually really SAD this problem could even exist....let alone persist. It's freaking Windows. Haven't they had USB power management working since the 90s?!

Kingdom Hearts III will be getting an update soon (later today or tomorrow). In addition to nonspecific bug fixes (hopefully they fixed the one that can soft lock the game and eat your save(s) ), we're getting “Critical Mode“ (in case Proud isn't hard enough for ya), New Game+, increased Photo storage (up to 200), and a few other welcome QoL changes.

So... I haven't tested them yet, but I may or may not have just gotten 2 360s for $10 at a garage sale.

Any good games for someone who mainly likes Nintendo games? I got Halo 1 and Star Wars Battlefront 1 with it. I want Street Fighter 4, but have little idea what else there is. I've never owned an Xbox before.

@ReaderRagfish Which list is shorter: game types you'd like, or ones that you wouldn't like?
Seeing as I've got about 300+ games lying around here, plus probably another 100 digital, I might be able to recommend you a title or two...

@gcunit Nope, never played it. Like I said, I've never owned an Xbox of any kind before. I've heard Viva Pinata is good though, almost forgot about it.

I bought my Xbox just so I could play my old copy of Viva Piñata again.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Anyone in the Microsoft loop able to tell me what most people think the new Xbox will be called? At this point my money is on Xbox Banana 421. Because they have had no pattern in naming conventions.

Xbox Infinity. It will come pre-packaged with it's own treadmill and will be marketed as an exercise machine that's fun for the whole family.

Crackdown 1 and 2 has been free for everyone (including silver members, I think) to download for awhile now, and now the DLC for both games is also free, so go and grab it if you haven’t already!

Midnight Club's a pretty good arcade racer. Forza Horizon is a more realistic racer, but still with the same arcade feel. Try the Fable series if you're after a more action/adventure/RPG type game.

And since you have Battlefront 1, I see no reason why you couldn't try to track down Battlefront 2.

@AlohaPizzaJack "Colonial Marines."
ROFL, you sneaky, sneaky devil. Nobody else even noticed.

@Heavyarms55 I still bet on "XBox Y" and a slogan of "XBox Y: Just Y." It fits their otherwise self-destructive naming pattern that makes WiiU look positively marketing-genius caliber.

More serious suggestions might be "XBox Infinite/Infinity" if they really want to push forward with a generation-less hardware-agnostic future of XBox, with generational bleed-over, Windows+console+streaming cross-compatibility, even some Switch compatibility etc. It's a good sounding name, conveys the meaning of such an ecosystem, and would have a solid tie-in to the likely launch mega-title of their flagship series: "Halo: Infinite"

But more likely is XBox Y. Because it fits the unimaginable stupidity of their naming department to date.

(And I noticed after I wrote this @CanisWolfred already mentioned that name! It's gaining traction!)
