I've never actually used Discord. Isn't it just like a chatroom app type thing?
Why would Microsoft actually want it?

@Dezzy It's a messaging service. Originally it was marketed just for gamers but has now become more centralised on "people" rather than just "gamers". You can host servers with up to 500,000 users, (25,000 concurrent) so it's one advantage over more standard services like WhatsApp.

I dunno if anyone else is finding this Spring Sale supremely disappointing?

A lot of these games are often reduced in price, so there's not much rare here. They're also not particularly good deals in most cases. Most of these games are already cheaper than this if you buy retail copies. Unfortunately I'm on Series S so can't.

The recent PSN sale is pretty disappointing as well, prices-wise.

The big reason I'll never buy a digital only console, lol. Saving some money early on is probably nice, but it wouldn't take long at all for the difference in value to even out if you play a lot of games over time.

I'm not seeing huge price differences between retail and digital up here. Except maybe a few in favour of digital.

It only makes sense economically because I buy almost no full price games for it. I'll probably only buy like 2 this year. Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster will definitely be the first one (which is definitely worth the money), and then maybe Halo Infinite (although depending on how it reviews and how long it is, I might just play that on 1-month gamepass instead).

I'm trying to move towards buying less full price games and waiting for sales before getting the latest titles. I can wait for games because I'm getting some of the latest games through GamePass - I'm really looking forward to playing The Ascent, which looks fantastic in the latest trailer

MLB 2021 The Show on Xbox isn't news. But MLB 2021 The Show on GPU is one hell of a dunk on Sony fans. Sony Ponies must be losing their minds over that news. PS5 owners will probably have to wait eight months before MLB 2021 The Show is a PS+ free download.

Edit: Normally I don't care to promote the RDX Podcast. I think their opinions lean towards trigger-baiting listeners who aren't their loyal fanbase. That said, I think their recent discussion over the MLB 2021 GPU situation is very spirited and interesting.

Age of Empires 4 release window is Fall 2021, no Xbox release announced though (PC exclusive).

Apparently Everwild, Perfect Dark and Fable are years away according to an industry insider with connections to certain employees at Xbox Game Studios

That's a shame. Those were among some of the only Xbox exclusives I was interested in honestly. Hopefully Hellblade 2 isn't in that camp

That's the biggest issue with the XSX. Almost all of its big games are years away.

It feels like half the generation will be over before that console actually kicks into gear.

Got an Xbox Wireless Headset today after weeks of waiting and I'm pretty happy with it. I wasn't that impressed at first but once I downloaded the Atmos app it is amazing for the price.
Need to get in a game party now to see what the mic quality is like.

I wasn't really expecting Fable any earlier than Christmas 2022 to be honest, given how big a game like that is gonna be. Perfect Dark I'm expecting even later, given that it was only just recently announced.

Everwild I had no expectation, or enthusiasm for at all, given that they've not showed gameplay.

@Dezzy Technically they've basically shown no gameplay for any first party title that isn't Halo Infinite to my knowledge

I'm mostly excited about Hellblade because I loved the first one, Fable because it's an IP they really needed to bring back, Perfect Dark since I think a more modern one could really stand toe to toe with Sony's first party offerings visually and narratively and Everwild because I dig the artstyle

I don't really have expectations for any of them except Hellblade given we haven't seen anything from any of them, it's literally just the prospects right now

I wasn't really expecting any of these until at least 2022:

  • Hellblade 2
  • Forza Motorsport
  • State of Decay 3
  • Everwild
  • Fable
  • Avowed
  • Perfect Dark
  • Starfield

The most likely if any of those to be 2021 is Forza Motorsport given the playtest and the possibility that 4 year licensing continues resulting in Forza Motorsport 7 being delisted later this year. There's games that you'd think would be delisted by now given past franchise entry licensing patterns but aren't so it may be that companies are licensing differently so that their games can last longer hence I could see Forza Motorsport being 2022 with Forza Motorsport 7 still being around after this year.

@TheFrenchiestFry At the time of the second trailer, Rare didn't even seem to be sure what kind of game it would be, so it better be years away still lol

Yeah true, but that matters a lot more when you're dealing with a new IP. Everyone knows vaguely what the next Fable, Gears, Forza and Perfect Dark will be like (given that those are all quite successful series, it would be kinda crazy if they massively changed any of them). In fact my whole hype for games like Fable and the next Forza Horizon game are pretty much based on the assumption that it will be more of the same.
Whereas I have no idea what Everwild or Avowed will be like.
