Some games are purchasable through the marketplace directly via the Xbox One. It's slowly but surely working much better. Easiest way to do it is still to go to xbox.com and purchase it. Also, if you can find a physical copy in a GameStop or on eBay, etc, there's that.

Nicely enough, all free titles that come through Games With Gold are all titles that are, or are going to be backwards compatible. So you get 2 free XB1 titles and 2 XB360 titles each month. I think that's worlds above what PSN does.

Hello all!

Haven't been gaming in a couple years and switched to an Xbox. So far it seems to have worked well as the 2 year delay seems to have reset my expectations for performance,etc.

Still going through the last half of Halo 1, then Gears 1, then Forza (6 or Horizon, haven't decided), and finally trying to check out MP by RENTING OVERWATCH FROM A VIDEO STORE. Perhaps this isn't news to some of you, but I had thought this wasn't a thing anymore. It is. Oh it is! $3 got me Overwatch for a night and 2 BLurays!!!!

Anyway...I need some friends. :-)

I don't have a mic yet, but should do so soon.

So please add me if you can stomach this over ridiculous happy fun fun post. |:-]

Gamer tag: Jodiuh

Cheers!!!!

Just added ya.

I knew about Scorpio, by 2 years without gaming just became too much. With the intro of a newer, slightly better Xbox and cheap deals/games, I couldn't resist.

I ended up paying $300, but got $80 in Microsoft credit and Warch Dogs. Used the credit for Rocket League and Forza Horizon 3...amazing game IMO. Do you like racers?

Sweet, thanks buddy.

I am waiting for that Sennheiser Game One to drop back down to $130 from $170, so no mic for awhile. Doesn't seem like there's even a way for me to try or on my phone or controller either?

I was a little concerned about not liking Horizon because most reviews have mentioned that it's very arcadey. I guess in the sense that you can go through trees or off road with little speed penalty it is, but it DEFINITELY does not feel like burnout or need for speed where your basically on an ice track with no feel of the road. I was completely satisfied with the road feel and steering in Horizon.

For me, the biggest difference is being able to turn the game music up and the other sounds down. That's not an option in Forza 6 and kinda depressing when I'm racing, lol. Then the outrageously gorgeous graphics in Horizon just won me over. I can't believe this is on a console.

See ya soon!

I'm digging my X1s to be honest. Can't wait for Gears!

I'm waiting for Forza 6 to go on sale. The demo blew my mind.

Not into the open world racing ad much as track.

If you have a chance to snag the Elite controller, you won't be disappointed. I grabbed mine on sale at the egg for $119.

I just had a quick question. I don't understand why Microsoft doesn't load up the next console, Scorpio, with double the amount of RAM they are planning? Anyone who has built a computer primarily for gaming knows how much of a difference more RAM makes in loading, smoothness, etc... I am sure that Microsoft would get an incredible volume discount and probably better than that, the RAM manufacturer would love to have their product as a key component of a successful gaming console.
Anybody have any thoughts???

It's 12-13 months out and they're at 12 gb right now.

I still find 8 quite manageable on PC. I know the 12 Scorpio allegedly has is shared.

Perhaps 16gb instead?
