Surely the extra grunt could give the designers more freedom to make larger and prettier maps?

No chance, I mean, First party games will get 4K support day 1 I suspect but other than increased resolution and 4K texturing (something available in the games already -bar Halo 5 cos its not on PC) they won't separate the online gamers with a bizarre wall.

Halo 5 has a healthy online side, with a ton of modes it doesn't take long to find a game, I believe Gears 4 again has more players on Xbox than PC but both PC and Xbox gamers can play online, (ranked playlists are incoming) with Xbox having option to only play other Xbox's. Personally, if it's co-op stuff and MMO kinda malarkey I welcome PC gamers to keep online bigger. Can Horde 2.0 be played with PC players?

Surely they could make it so the levels are only visible to Scorpio owners?
I'm unsure why that would be so terrible and it would give the Scorpio a USP where they can show the difference in power.

Barely anyone online compared to the normal Xbox Ones? Also, it would go against 'nobody is left behind' mantra Phil Spencer's been on about.

I get the not many people aspect but nobody is being left behind as the games are still exactly the same just with a few extra levels just for Scorpio owners. How is that any different to dlc levels?
I own Battlefield 1 but not the dlc I don't complain about not having the dlc because it's my choice to not have it and levels for Scorpio is just a more expensive version of that.

Are they trying to one-up Sony's shite April selection or what?

To be fair, Lara Croft is good, but it was already on PS+.

That makes it two months in a row now that both platform's selections haven't got a single game that interests me.

It's good that they flagged up that it's going to be in GWG, but why even put it in the sale?!

Bought the Resident Evil triple pack in the sale - Am I being daft, or does Resi 4 not have subtitles? :dread:

Has anyone been playing that Paladins game? Aside from being a blatant Overwatch knockoff, it's actually really decent fun and doesn't have the barriers you'd expect from a Free To Play game. I'd definitely recommend giving it a blast if you haven't already.

I played some Paladins last night. Was fun, but I don't get all this card nonsense that is in games now. Give me something like the Shadowrun FPS that had different and balanced characters that I learnt what to do with. Every time I pop in a new online game now they want me to open chests and use cards and stuff wat? I am too old for that shiznitz.

So with free games with Xbox live I read that on the Xbox one you can't play the game if u discontinue your subscription but you can on the 360 but does that apply to 360 game on the Xbox one?

So, I bought the Resident Evil triple pack in the sales. Probably the worst decision of my life. Never played RE6 before, so started Leon's campaign. It's. strawberry floating. Dreadful. Every enemy throws themselves at you leading to some stupid strawberry floating rattle the stick QTE, then it spams you with zombies, dogs, those stupid harder zombies, and then you get a bloody "defend this area" horde section. In a Resident Evil game? Give me a break.

Are any of the other stories any better or have I just totally wasted my money on this? And playing in splitscreen I literally can't pause the action. strawberry floating shambles.

So not the same then? Also it would be a PR disaster: "Microsoft locks content behind hardware paywall", etc. Plus it would have to be significant enough to convince people to upgrade but not too much to piss off the larger install base of the "obsolete" platform.
Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.
