I’ve seen Andromeda for as low as 4 quid in some of the XBO online sales (where gold members get extra discount)

Steam Sales means I grabbed Final Fantasy XIII, Jurassic World: Evolution, Furi and Axiom Verge for cheap!

Amazon have a xbox one x with Battlefield V, Assassins Creed Odyssey and Fallout 76 for £399.99
Ended up going for it in the end as it was by far the best deal

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Xbox-Special-c ... e%2Bx&th=1

I also got a months Gold and Gamepass for £1 each too

Looking forward to seeing what I have missed on Xbox in the past year or so

Sod all in my opinion.

Forza Horizon 4 was decent but I’ve never known a time to be so bland as a Microsoft console owner.

I would say that every cross-plat game I've played on the X has been comfortably better than on the Pro (because I'm stupid enough to buy stuff twice). I was playing Titanfall 2 last night and it runs like quicksilver. Absolutely glorious orgy of hot metal. Same for AC Odyssey & Origins, RDR2, Tomb Raider series, Doom, Skyrim, Witcher 3, SW BF2, Far Cry. That's the value of the X for me, in the end.

I have played Fallout 76 and Assassins Creed on the Pro so looking forward to comparing the two. I have 4k non HDR mind. I had a 360/Xbox One before so I have an extensive library to go at anyway

A lot of the BC stuff is also X Enhanced which is pretty bloody impressive on certain games. Mirror's Edge, Oblivion and the original RDR are ace and I've heard amazing things about Ninja Gaiden Black and Panzer Dragoon, going even further back to the OG XB.

Ninja Gaiden Black's impeccable emulation is about the only thing that is making me seriously consider buying an Xbox One X.

...I'm a completely hopeless case, aren't I?

Game are doing a ''Get new games half price with selected games'' trade in deal:

https://www.game.co.uk/webapp/wcs/store ... eGamesWYTI

I have 1-2 Switch sat untouched since last Christmas so might be tempted
I repeated this deal today and got red dead 2. The manager wasn’t having any of it at first as they have updated their list of new games it qualifies for but I pointed out that 90% of their new list don’t have a 2018 release date.

1-2 switch still carries a trade in value of £20 so I was bartering for the sake of a fiver but I got there in the end.

On the first party front there's not been much. I really liked sea of thieved but it's an acquired taste.

Horizon 4 is good, too!

Its a great box for 3rd party stuff and gamepass has some corkers on it.

Hopefully Crackdown 3 is good

Yeah, I’m pinning a large amount of hope into this too.

Loved the first one and enjoyed the second - even though it was pretty poor in terms of a follow up.

Out in February I think.
