having issues with DOA4

Got DOA2 Ultimate and 3 (Ultimate says I own but also has a buy to own button like wtf...3 is fine)

DOA4 simply says oops there was an error when you try to buy and Ive tried to buy it like 12 times...problem is im getting charged for each of those attempts even though im not actually buying anything, or getting emails or anything in order history...support at least said she sees the failed attempts so Ill see what happens tomorrow if i can get all the charges removed.
Same here, I bought Gun Valkyrie with no problem, bit I got charged twice for Doa4 and I can't even download it, RR6 isn't even available as we speak.

I think these digital store problems are more than just an issue with these Backwards Compatible titles. I was buying credits for Halo Infinite yesterday and only wanted to buy 1000 credits and only clicked it once, but I could see the payment cycle through quickly a second time on its own and ended up with 2000 credits. I was annoyed, but figured I would probably use them in the future, so didn't go through the hassle of seeking a refund.

Oh my sinister aims go far past holding up next gen. It's my intention to talk so many people into buying a Series S that we actually reverse advancement and have consoles start actually going backwards and regressing. Each person I can convince to buy one contributes to my master plan.

Brilliant.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
Pretty upset that Mortal Kombat 9, FEAR, and Lego: Lord of the Rings are disc only.

Guess I'll just have to replay them on PC.

:/


Still a few games I'd be interested in tho. Nice to have the options
I personally recommend gladius and star wars clone wars.. clone wars is hard to explain, a vehicular third person shooter, but they capture the appeal of their license and have some great "big battle" levels, something which really appealed to me around that time

The fuck is Otogi? Should I play it?
It is one of my favorite games, played a ton on OG Xbox, almost 20 years ago, and keep playing it regularly.

It is an action game set in small stages, with highly destructible backgrounds, aerial combat and a great atmosphere. Game offers some great challenge, and is full of secret weapons. This is a level based game, a game-design I tend to miss a lot, as everything has been replaced by more open areas nowadays.

Anyone know why ridge Racer 6 isn't on the UK store?

I bought it from US Store. its only 9,99 there. But the catch is, I can't start it on my native region. I have to keep the console on US region if I want to play it. Its not much work, but I'd rather had it being playable on my default setting.

Played some medal of honor Airborne yesterday

doesnt fell like 60 fps

and the game didnt aged well

it was such a cool concept, just parachuting in an open area and have to do some objectives. I hope they made a new game with that concept

I'm a bit of a noob, but just to confirm, I can purchase any of these games and play them on my future S/X right?

Conan on the 360/PS3 was such an underrated gem of a game. Really would love to go back into that one.

Thanks for the recommendations!

I swear the more years that go by the more I appreciate older games from a back catalogue somewhere. I haven't played either of these. I love that Microsoft have this certain focus on back compat.

I will look both up. And I see you created a thread for Gladius. I'll tag you if I post in there!

Episode III is one of the best movie based games ever. As good as EAs Two Towers and ROTK.

Ah that's awesome. Did you ever play Jedi Power Battles on Dreamcast? And wherever else... Ps1... Very similar, much less refined ofc, the og awesome starwars co-op slasher thing

This is MUCH better than Jedi Power Battles and even has a MP mode. The saber combat in MP was great.

DOA4 still not working...and if you look in the marketplace online there is no listing for it, only the demo. probably why purchasing it doesn't work. fix it MS!

Cheers, oh that's bollocks! I've never played it before but used to like them on PS1 and psp

Honestly cant get enough Payne


Simpler times, no achievements, a cracking story, excellent music and awsome sound effects, just the complete package really

So glad it made it to the BC program (y)
 
Pretty transformative over the 360 and ps3 versions. Those were 18-30 fps. Now it's locked 60fps on the new X consoles. Gotta give MS credit. You can't even play most heavy hitter ps3 games on PS5, but on XSS/X you get over double the framerate and massive resolution bumps. This runs at 1800p and 1200p 60fps on the new consoles.





XB360 same areas for comparison lol




Fallout 3 is virtually the same as above but full 4k and 1440p. So even further improved in terms of resolution.
Fuck me that’s Fantastic. All Bethesda games are 60 now and don’t compromise Resolution. Also I somehow missed MK9 the first time I read the list. Time to pop that in again since neither MKX or 11 ever surpassed it in terms of fun factor.
