I'm still rocking x2 Samsung 850 Evo's both 250gb, i was gonna grab a 970 Evo plus NVMe 1tb. But...like you mentioned the 980 Evo is on the horizon. That would be a noice little upgrade to whack Cyberpunk 2077 on! I ain't all that clued up on ssd's and what not, though.

From what I've been reading, the difference between a standard 2.5" SSD and a NVMe SSD, right now, is marginal. I doubt it'll be much of an upgrade today, but that's because of how games are made and run. We will likely see game dev change to take advantage of the SSD's in future, but it'll be years before it really happens I suspect due to the cross-gen nature of this new gen jump and also them not being standard in PC's yet.

 

It won't hurt to get one, though, that's for sure. Those 980's will also be very future proof I imagine.

Sega (a drip feed) or Just a beginning

 

 

Football Manager 2021 has been officially announced, and will be launching on November 24, 2020 for PC. In some big news, SEGA also announced that for the first time since 2007, the Football Manager series will be available on Xbox platforms, where it will launch alongside the PC and Nintendo Switch versions of the game. Note Xbox 2021

re: Football Manager

 

Not surprising as someone who plays/follows the games, they've been showing up on Games Pass PC for the past year or two. Will be interesting to see how it does on a home console tbh. I don't think this means MS are buying Sega my self though, some of the "evidence" is a bit tin foil hatty, but I think there's a partnership there for sure at least.

Don't know how I missed this...  I never thought that most employees at Bethesda found out they were going to Xbox the same day everyone else it. Isn't that mad? I mean, I completely understand it. And I wonder, if some folk at Bethesda resented the idea. But they had no choice as they're under Zeni Max. But I think Hines and Howard are genuine and there is trust between Microsoft Xbox and Bethesda. Future is bright.

Bethesda has been lowkey struggling lately, so it'l probably have been a relief to some of those studios. They've been putting out solid games by all accounts (except perhaps Fallout 76) but they just don't sell very well.

 

I bet some of those devs are excited about what possibilities Games Pass opens up, too. Microsoft seem to be allowing these studios creative little side projects that they can throw out on Games Pass cause they don't have to worry so much about sales. Plus, Microsoft as a platform holder are less monetisation heavy compared to the publishers, and devs 100% hate that they have to build games around them too.

 

A few years ago the idea of Microsoft being a good house to live in as a game dev was hilariously terrifying but now? Seems like a cozy place to be.

From:https://whatculture.com/gaming/final-fantasy-16-every-confirmed-and-leaked-detail-we-know?page=2

 

At the end of Final Fantasy XVI's 'Awakening' trailer, a splash screen flashed up promoting Square-Enix's next epic as a 'PlayStation Console Exclusive'. The wording here is very subtle: that's a PlayStation console exclusive, not a 'PlayStation Console' exclusive - as clarified by the minute asterisk at the bottom.

 

For those without the vision of a sparrowhawk, that microscopic text reads 'Also available on PC', suggesting it'll come out on home computers alongside the PS5 version before it lands on alternative hardware. That may or may not be true.

@Failed Again I'm not saying final fantasy 16 is coming to Xbox. It's a quote from Bethesda saying that Fallout 76 would have 16 times the detail to Fallout 4. The comment was posted in a vid about Microsoft buying Bethesda.

I do not at all expect that Xbox will make up all the ground it lost to Sony this generation but I reckon it'll make a lot of it up this upcoming gen. It's been said a million times now, but Games Pass is too great to ignore now and if soon to be PS5 owners didn't know that a week ago, they know that now after the Bethesda acquisition. Starfield and TES VI, if they are indeed console exclusive to Xbox, are console sellers.

At the end of the day, the only thing Microsoft wants to see is an increase to the game pass subus; 15mil+ right now.

I doubt they'll make Fallout or Elder Scrolls an exclusive, they're pro consumer and would love making the maximum amount of money.

 

Starfield however, I'm fully expecting to become an exclusive

Unless the PS5 gets Games Pass, which is something MS want but Sony won't do anytime soon, I don't expect the PS5 will get either. Games Pass is the primary reason why Microsoft are shelling $7.5b on Bethesda, if your platform doesn't have Games Pass support, it aint getting games from Xbox Game Studios in the coming years. I will be very surprised if I'm wrong tbh.

 

Xbox has been the bastard child of Microsoft's various divisions since it began pretty much, there's a reason why that's been changing the past few years, they want to be the Netflix of gaming.

I second this. As commentators like Rand Al Thor say, Microsoft aren't shelling out $7.5b only for Sony to make 30% cut on every copy of Elder Scrolls and Fallout. They are answering the narrative "Xbox has no games" and fixing that. Not even that. Xbox doesn't regard PS as their main competitor. It's Amazon, Google Stadia etc. They're vying for the those 3 billion gamers out there through Cloud, Xbox and PC. Game Pass success is the number 1 priority. Phil Spencer said it himself regarding the games Microsoft has acquired "Xbox Game Pass is the flywheel we are feeding there." Source  It's a very progressive move. The Xbox hardware of course is still competition to PlayStation but the Xbox brand, is competition to Amazon, Google Stadia etc. 

 

Dealer Gaming, Rand Al Thor, Colt Eastwood, these guys are all Xbox-centric commentators on YouTube. Dealer has Xbox staff like Aaron Greenberg on his channel. He has insiders telling him information on Series S for about 2 years now. That crew have been calling things as they are, sometimes speculating but most of the time their "opinions" are informed by insiders. They don't think those games are coming to PS5 with Dealer jokingly giving himself an out by saying maybe a year timed exclusive at most. 

 

I think Game Pass is going to grow and grow. It grew 50% this year alone. It's now at 15 million. In 5 years time, it's not impossible to think this figure could be 50 million or even 75 million, especially after some games like Starfield or Avowed drop. Those that prefer PS5 have the option to buy a Series S for a good price, especially a used Series S in 3 years time might go for €175.  That's cheaper than the price of 3 next gen games!  And then when you have Game Pass, you can play Avowed for 10 or 15 a month as well as all the other games on there. It's not like you have to buy Series S then shell out top dollar for new games (the games you bought it for in the first place will be on Game Pass). 

 

Anyway, here's a video where Colt, addresses the very question. (time-stamped to skip the sponsor)

 

 

Anyone feeling cheated by Microsoft buying Zeni-Max. Well, there was talks that EA were going to buy them as well as Tencent. If Sony bought them, we wouldn't see those games on another platform. If EA bought them, it would be a nightmare, same as Tencent. At least with Microsoft, there are existing relationships. There is history between the devs Zeni Max own. Microsoft will also put it out on Game Pass so it goes to Xbox, PC and Android and probably Apple.  So there are more options for people to play.

Yea when you piece together all the talk from the in the knows, the leaks, Phil and numerous other MS people, it is quite clear that Games Pass is the future of Xbox. Again, Netflix of gaming and all that. Hardware is still going to be important for them for a long while as not everyone wants to game on the cloud and not everyone games on PC, so a console is still important, but Games Pass is the meat and gravy of Xbox right now.

 

Go look at Netflix and what they spend on original content - $17 billion in 2020 - the Bethesda acquisition is essentially the video game industry equivalent, except Microsoft have the funds already to make some big moves early to build up the service quicker.

You just beat me to it. I'm watching it right now. :D 

 

Edit: I'm impressed it locked to 60fps, on Modern Warfare while all those explosions happened.

I'm so glad they tested GTA IV. I still have a 2020 playthrough of that game. Also, the fact he's comparing the results to a One X. I mean, how many of us own a One X? I was rocking a One S until recently, so the bump must be really nice. GTA IV at 60fps on console. Now that is nice!

The quick resume feature looking as awesome I expected. Giant QoL feature that one, I think it's going to be one of those features that you're not going to want to live without after a few months.

I'd be more impressed if it at least ran in 1080p.

I've been subscribed to the EA Play since release.  Without a doubt it is one of those bills that I shouldn't be paying because I get no benefit from it.  It will be nice to have that small savings without losing something (that I don't really use anyway).

 

The articles that have been coming out where people have had the series x in home for a couple of weeks are getting me excited.   Loving the multiple auto resume feature.  I'm also enjoying the fact that there are features that can't be talked about yet.  

 

Oh oh oh...I also hope the multiple auto resume works when you power off/on.  I love turning my xbox off when I go to bed and then the next day firing up the last game I played and being right where I left it.

I imagine it works literally exactly like Windows hibernation does, which is basically a 99.9% shutdown of your PC. So I think, unless you want it to be 100% turned off, which modern consoles and PC's never really are anyway as far as I'm aware (and would require turning off the socket), I imagine the Quick Resume feature will work with console shutdowns. Would be good to get confirmation.

I understand how it works.  Love it with one game in suspension, but it will be great to have a few games suspended through the night.

  • Game Pass Ultimate members get EA Play November 10th. 

Bringing Bethesda Games to Xbox Game Pass

As we shared, Bethesda were early supporters of Xbox Game Pass, and we will be adding Bethesda’s iconic franchises to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC. One of the things that has me most excited is seeing the roadmap with Bethesda’s future games, coming to Xbox console and PC including Starfield, the highly anticipated, new space epic currently in development by Bethesda Game Studios and Doom Eternal, which is coming to Xbox Game Pass on October 1 and for PC later in 2020.
