Hmm.. not sure if QR is enough to buy a console but yeah a great feature that you won’t find in PS5. I think I’m gonna wait a little longer and see how it goes .. thanks
Not every game works well with Quick Resume, mostly multiplayer games, Killer Instinct tends to restart and same goes for Dark Souls Remastered.

But usually it works for me.

Reading around, one thing i noticed that i didn't before as a PC gamer only, is that Sony really doesn't mind paying for timed exclusives, huh?

They are known for having big exclusives, but it doesn't stop them from making sure that Xbox doesn't get some games the same time their consoles do, FF7 Remake, Deathloop and Kena:Bridge Of Spirits are just some examples of that.

I get why Sony does it, doesn't stop it from being annoying, oh well, i will just get those games when they come out for Xbox.

Both use similar tactics here. Yakuza:Like a Dragon is timed exclusive on XSX|S - PS5 version is next year. I think Medium may well be a console launch exclusive too. They both offer marketing incentives and deals to launch first on their systems.

So many cool game pass games this month and those are not even all of them. More to be announced for second half of the month later.

Pretty happy with my Series S purchase right now.

It's called organic growth.

It's not a bug, only the Ultimate Edition has/will receive upgrades, and it's the standard edition on Game Pass. Really shitty from Remedy, but they did just have the Ultimate Edition on sale for $20 last week at least.

The ultimate edition isn’t out yet, if you buy it you can still only play the standard edition. You get two different game icons but only one works.

Call of the Sea now available for pre-download

10.23GB on Series X|S

Shame it's coming out alongside Cyberpunk 2077
Ugh, haven't bought Cyberpunk yet but i already have Call Of The Sea installed and i still have other games around to play, and stuff to watch on Netflix and Disney+, and a life to get back to, MS should stop stealing my time!

Just joking, but yeah, i want to play that game, the trailers make it look like a gorgeous walking simulator.

^ It's getting to the point where I wouldn't even trust ordering one of these things online. I guess I'll wait until you can get curbside pickup. 🤷‍♂️

Master Chief trending on Twitter .................. Because he's coming to Fortnite? Ewwww


Nah i'm all for it! I play Fortnite with my kids and i feel like it would encourage a TON of people to check out Halo so it could only be good for the brand. Imagine all the Sony parents though with their 8 year olds begging them to play the God of War series hahaha

This would make me believe its a collab to help push Infinite no? Perhaps its coming sooner rather than later.

Hopefully VRR will give Xbox a smooth run on Cyberpunk, can't wait to try it.

Well this is disappointing. I hope they have a day 1 patch that fixes all the issues.

I think I'm going to wait on this game anyway since I want the full-on Series X version for my first playthrough and hopefully they will have all the kinks worked out by then.
