Lolzzz I think with gamepass there's no need for Xbox live gold unless you've heavily spended in the games library and own all or most of the games on offer even then first party exclusives on day 1 is still a big plus

Consoles sell at launch, especially when the competitor is globally supply constrained. 3 months into launch doesn't say anything about how hardware sales will fare in the long run. It doesn't help that no actual sales figures were announced. What does "moved the most devices in an Xbox launch month" even mean? Did the Xbox One have better sales in its 2nd month from launch? Questions we'll never know answers to. Looking forward to Sony announcing actual sales figures.

Also:


Previous numbers (launched in June 2017):

April, 2020 = 10 million
September, 2020 = 15 million
January, 2021 = 18 million
I'm seeing a steady decline in Game Pass growth.

This guy alone has bought 3 broken Xbox Series X's.


>One turned out fine when it was mentioned as broken.
>The other one had a faulty power supply and repairing it is a nightmare with all the epoxy adhesive on every component and it's hard to source replacement parts.
> The third one is an interesting one, one component ( Likely a MOSFET, common known issue with these components going bad on Xbox One consoles) emitted smoke everytime it was powered on, Totally destroyed one of the mainboard, multiple layers likely shorted and damaged beyond repair.

    I sold it thinking it was faulty, it wasn't and now I regret it. Had a RX 570 and a core i7 second gen which was comfortably gaming above ps4pro. Turns out it was AMDs shitty software problem and not a hardware problem. I really thought my GPU died
    That’s sad to know. So are you looking for legit gaming options ya do numbri?

    @iampasha is your current PC build not handling games enough to warrant a console purchase?

    you can get someone's credentials and share the sub that way. It works fine.

  • iampasha iampasha:
    Series x is available here yes but slightly overpriced at 120,000rs
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    because here pretty much everything is out of stock. Series S seems to come back to stock the most often, but I guess its because its either the cheapest one for MS to manufacture, or people want it the least of the 3 next-gen consoles.

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    the first question is are you even able to find anything in stock ?

    anyone tried Outrider demo. It is looking great. With semi decent story. A mixture of Division, Mass Effect and Destiny. Only mature.
    Yeah I tried a couple of classes. It does some things well, but overall I found it to be very bland.

    I don't even know what kind of game it is, but have been reading it. Will check the demo.
