    I just meant short term for now it's good news, they were definitely testing the waters and the response stopped them.

    I was playing breakpoint and enjoying free trial - and it's only 8.99 so certain I'll get that amount of fun out of it but worth paying 19.99 for the ultimate edition please ?

    Watched a load of YouTube videos but been so many patches etc I'm.a bit confused

    I agree. No smoke without fire.

    That has surprised me, on paper they seemed much closer.

    If you like horde and escape then it's really worth it. If you like versus 4v4 and are UK based, not worth it now. 5 minute plus waits for matches unless you want to play king of the hill 24/7. It's also nothing like the pace of original gears, higher speed, bouncing gnasher game. Horde and escape suffer a bit because you have to level up cards, so it stops the casual players sadly but it's excellent fun in a party.

    The Series X GPU is 20% more powerful than the maximum power of the PS5 GPU, which won't always be running at its maximum power.

    Gears PvP has always been a rolly polly shotgun lagfest ever since the first game. I've never played a less consistent shooter before or since, and I guess that is the result of building a game around a weapon as random as a shotgun.

    To me, that image just says that Hitman 3 isn't well optimised on either platform. Based on that chart, I'd wager my modest PC, with an overclocked 5700 XT Nitro+, would beat both consoles. But going by the components in all three systems, that really shouldn't be the case.

    Still too early to judge IMO. Give it a year or two.

    Unlocking the paywall on F2P games gets a thumbs up from me but i think they should have done this ages ago.

    I think it's totally unacceptable that at least Microsoft don't have a pre-order program where
    you can put your name down for available stock.
    how hard would it be for them to ship 1 console to 1 address?
    they probably don't care is the answer.

    Or they don't want hundreds of thousands of pre-orders to manage? Evidently nobody does, otherwise somebody would be doing it.

    Maybe Microsoft and Sony should have given priority to current Xbox Live/PS+ subscribers first via the online stores? im betting theres a lot of buyers (scalpers) who have never even lifted up a a joypad in their lives.

    Interesting that Microsoft has backtracked on the gold price hike.

    Lost the sync between the controller and the series x today. Wouldn't sync any of the other Xbox one controllers I have (got 6 of those!) either, only a full restart of the Series X did something and the controller was synced as if nothing happened... Hopefully its just a strange issue and not an underlying console hardware issue.

    I have that problem with my Xbox one X. It loses sync after a few days for whatever reason but after a restart its ok.

    I did the upgrade myself probably around two weeks ago(perhaps less), when I did so it clearly stated the offer expired in 9 days.

    I don't know if it did expire and that's that, or they immediately reinstated the offer, something to check before anyone buys a shed load of Gold for sure.

    Never had it before on my One X or the Series X until today... Couldn't get any controller to work, even tried a wired connection and it did nothing until the Series X was reset.
