    Little late to the external storage posts a few days back but I thought I would put my 2p down.

    I've got an 8TB Seagate drive which I picked up for £115 a few years ago which I was using with the One X. With mediocre broadband at the time, I preferred to store anything I downloaded rather than delete.
    I've also got a 2TB Crucial SATA SSD (picked up very cheap last year) which am using, along with the 8TB Seagate, on my now XSX. Everything that is OG or 360 Xbox (and some One titles) goes onto the 8TB Seagate, semi-frequently played One titles on the 2TB SSD leaving the internal NVMe drive solely for XSX only titles.

    I've just checked and I have 300 games installed (mixture of GFG, GPU and owned titles) and 28 Apps and have used 55.9% of the total storage space (4.4TB free).

    Tell me about it.

    I've not even seen a trailer for a next gen release to get hyped about.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it was Forza Horizon 5, assuming Halo is now in some sort of weird mini-dev hell.

    Is FPS boost optional? kingdom come deliverance I feel is a lot more cinematic feeling at 30.

    I think we'll get Halo before Xmas.

    Stalker 2 was slated for a 2021 release, but there isn't an official release date and the developer hasn't shown much so I'm a bit doubtful at this point. Going to be on Game Pass though which is great.

    Am I right in thinking you can't transfer games from a series X to another series X on the same network unless they are both fully on? Ie one is not on stand by mode.

    I had to turn the downstairs console fully on to transfer a game upstairs, I find this weird seeing as the consoles update games in stand by mode.

    You can disable FPS Boost and Auto HDR from the game settings menu for each game.

    Missed a recent drop for the Xbox Wireless headset. On the lookout if anyone finds it.

    The Xbox headset head band could do with a few more botches, I’m at the maximum and it’s just about fit around my head to go over my ears. This doesn’t happen with my sennheisers or Sony or others.

    Auto HDR really doesn't work well.

    Same on PS5. It can't really be shoe horned in where it wasn't designed to have it.
