As always I pretty much played every 360 game, but never got Bayonetta so that is good. Trails will be fun, but that slime game looks like this month's Go Home - a game I could not get along with. I though the Red Faction game was alright in a generic action game type of way. The series was like the Lost Planet games, everyone seemed to be different from the last for no apparent reason.

Oh man Lost Planet - I wanted to get into that but i had to stop because my eyes were hurting from everything being white and overlaid with more snowstorms, it was genuinely unpleasant to play.

Diablo 3's Ultimate Evil Edition is available for free on Xbox One this weekend for Xbox live Gold subscribers, as part of Microsoft's Free Play Days promotion.

The Ultimate Evil Edition of the game includes the transformative Reaper of Souls expansion, which propelled Blizzard's action RPG from flawed classic to actual greatness.

Also this weekend, the Diablo 3 Eternal Collection will be available to buy from the Xbox Store with a 35 per cent discount, reducing it from £60 to £39. This includes everything from the Ultimate Evil Edition, plus the recent Rise of the Necromancer pack which introduced the Necromancer class to the game. Saves are compatible, so you can use this to keep playing after the free weekend ends. Xbox Live will also keep any progress made and achievements earned during the free weekend if you decide to come back to Diablo 3 later.

Both offers are live now and will remain so until 8am on Tuesday morning, UK time.

Weird thing was Lost Planet 2 - co-op, set in tropical locations and inside buildings. Not like the first game!

How is Xbox One S as a 4K Blu-ray player?

Any differences between it and an expensive high end player?

Not bothered about 4K gaming outside VR, but cinema quality remasters of Terminator 2 and Bladerunner have me pumped :datass:

Latest Xbox Update Releases to Insiders Starting Today

It’s an exciting day at Team Xbox as Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Ring will get a first look at the latest Xbox update. This release is the next major update for gaming on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, and is designed to make the Xbox gaming experience more fun, personalized, and social than ever. We’ve heard feedback from our fans that they want the ability to customize Home the way they want. This new experience on Xbox One gives gamers more choice and delivers fun faster. Updates to Home, Guide and Community are available today, with updates to Avatars, Game Hubs, Profiles and more coming this fall. Windows 10 PCs will also receive updates to the Game bar and Gaming settings menu. Here’s a detailed look at some of the new features that will arrive for Xbox Insiders starting today and continuing throughout the next few months:

Customize Your Home: The first thing Insiders will notice is the new Home on Xbox One. This update is all about personalization; we’re putting the control in your hands, so that you can decide what to see when you turn on your console. The new look and feel is part of a design system called Microsoft Fluent Design; the look, feel, and movement of the dashboard has been updated to focus on speed, customization and expression—for you. Now, customize your Home screen to be uniquely yours, and view all the things you love at-a-glance. Have a favorite game or friend? Add them to Home! Select one, press the Menu button on your controller, and select “Add to Home.” This now creates an entire block of content that can be moved up or down—or removed altogether, should your interests or habits change. These blocks will evolve over time based on the things you like to do. For example, adding a game to your Home screen may pull in an Activity Feed post from the developer, show when your friends are playing that game online, suggest your next Achievement, and provide a quick shortcut to the Game Hub for that title. We’ll be adding additional types of content blocks in the coming months, so stay tuned for more. The team is always pushing to make the Xbox experience faster and faster. In this release, we’ve eliminated the wait between Home, Social, and My Games and Apps by consolidating them into one dashboard experience. No more splash screens means you get to fun even faster.

Effortless Guide Navigation: With this update, it’s faster than ever to switch between tabs in the guide so you can join friends, broadcast, switch between apps, and get back Home. New tab flyouts make it easier to see more content quickly, too. The new Guide layout quickly gets you to the stuff you care about, so you never miss a moment. It’s now even easier to switch between apps or get back to Home, and the new layout will enable you to quickly jump to different tabs using the left thumbstick, d-pad, or bumpers on your controller. Sign-in, Achievements, multiplayer (including parties, Looking for Group, and tournaments), People, Home and recent, messages, broadcasts and captures, and a new action center (including settings) each have their own tab in the new Guide.

A More Immersive Community: Staying connected with Friends and Clubs is now better than ever. The community section has an entirely new Activity Feed layout, showing more content at-a-glance. When looking at feed items in detail, they are presented in an immersive, full-screen view—sharing the experience just as it was captured. Reading comments is now much easier since the comment window can be expanded to fill the screen. You’ll now be able to skim the feed quickly or lean back on the couch and walk through it in detail – it’s entirely up to you. This makes it easier than ever to stay current with the games and friends you care about. Game Hubs, Profiles, and Clubs are also refreshed to make them more dynamic and engaging than ever before. We’re also making Improvements to Club discovery, to quickly display which Clubs you’re already a part of, and easily discover new Clubs to join. There will also be new titles that will be coming to Arena over the next few months, soon offering even more options for tournaments powered by Xbox Live.

Game Bar Gets Even Better: On Windows 10, we’re making it easier than ever to enable or disable Game Mode on a per-game basis by putting a switch directly in the Game bar. Mixer broadcasting with the Game bar will now give you more choices on the audio you broadcast; a new settings option will let you choose to broadcast game-only audio, or system-wide audio. We’ve also added a new Xbox Live Network Troubleshooting option to the Settings menu in Windows 10, which will help you track down connectivity issues and optimize your online multiplayer experience.

This is just the beginning of some major updates arriving for Xbox gamers later this year. We’ll be introducing plenty of new features in the coming months across Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, Mixer, and mobile devices designed to make your gaming experiences all about you. As always, we owe some big thanks for all the fan feedback we receive and review from gamers everywhere, as well as to the invaluable members of our Xbox Insider Program for all the feedback they provide regularly. We’ll be sharing more when the update releases to more fans later this year. The team has worked hard, and we hope you enjoy these latest updates to your Xbox One experience! And of course, don’t forget to tell us what you think.

I don't understand why Microsoft are always so fond of changing the dashboard so much throughout the console's life. It's like change for change's sake. Banging on about how much more customisable the new dashboard is, can I delete the Mixer and the OneGuide/Entertainment/whatever it's called tabs? Can I add an infinite number of pins yet?

Also god their lingo really sets my teeth on edge "all this rich content". Give me a break :dread:

To be fair, if they made it fast and decent they wouldn't have to keep changing the damn thing.
