    Maybe I’m more excited than most because I’ve wanted The Show for years but this seems like an absolutely huge move by Xbox

    PlayStation is developing a game that PlayStation players have to pay for and Xbox players (okay, subscribers) get for free.

    That's pretty mind blowing. I'm glad they waited until the day after April 1st to announce this. No one would believe them otherwise.

    yeah Santa Monica Studio makes it, they are owned by SIE.

    I think MLB is technically the publisher for the xbox version though?

    I'm sure Sony is making $$$ either way. I'm pretty pissed that I was xbox guy for 360 and one gen, i make the move to ps5 this gen, and MS shits all over sony with game pass. A few exclusives are all I can be excited about.

    Xbox is crushing the transition to new consoles, game pass was already the best deal in gaming but with the stuff they’re adding it’s just about irreplaceable.

    Features like quick resume and smart delivery just working well from the jump are obvious wins also imo.

    Posted from the PlayStation thread. I’m not a big fan of his games personally, but this would be undeniably a huge deal.

    My series x shows up today - what do I download first?

    Outriders looks cool, how's that one play?

    Destiny, CoD & FIFA are all beautiful on the Series X. Also GTA V is available on GamePass starting today but the optimized version isn’t coming until later this year.

    Any word on Halo Infinite?

    They really led everyone on making it seem like it would come at or near launch. In hindsight they must have known there was zero chance that was happening.

    I was gonna get GTAV so glad to see its on game pass. How do the games that aren't optimized run? Imagine they have better load times but is that about the only difference?

    Faster, smoother, sharper than lest gen for sure but not nearly the same as the ones developed/optimized for the new consoles.

    Nearly impossible to find a new elite controller unless it's direct from MSoft.

    Appreciate it, but ordered one last night. I was just kinda shocked nobody around had one for me to curbside pick-up.

    Careful my friend. I have an elite 2 controller and regret it, got it on launch a year a half ago.

    Half my D pad doesn't work, I have stick drift on both sticks (magnetitic sticks on paper sounds like a good idea but in practice are idiotic because they are always prone to move a little), and my hair trigger doesn't work anymore.

    Also the issue is it is great at times so there's no way I could go back to standard controllers for anything multiplayer.

    Be very careful with it as well, it is fragile. I never realized how relatively frequently I dropped a controller until I dropped a $180 controller off my bed and had sticks and D pads go flying.

    Controller remapping is awesome along with the paddles (I only ever use 2) but it gives you a huge edge in multiplayer games like CoD to jump around while aiming.

    Oh yah, I couldn't go back to a paddle-less controller. I had the white Elite, but had drift so took it apart and "fixed" it. Got rid of the drift, but sometimes my triggers wouldn't work, lol.

    Didn't even cross my mind to order a scuff or something.

    NHL21 is now on Gamepass....thoroughly enjoying it although you wouldn't be able to tell through my raging during every game. Ahhhh feels good to be back.

    I am badgering some high school friends to download it...because we also want to create the worst club ever. Will report back if that doesn't happen because I'd be happy to bring you down further.

    Haven't had a console in nearly 20 years but tomorrow my gaming hiatus is scheduled to come to an end with UPS delivering me an Xbox Series X.

    No clue what to do outside of nexus' post above mentioning Destiny, CoD & FIFA. Anything I should know or set-up tips?

    Subscribe to game pass before you buy any games. You might find what you want as part of your sub.

    Speaking of Game Pass, I picked up Desperados 3 while I wait for The Show and I must say, it’s a very enjoyable game.

    Right, scuffs seem solid as do Battle Beavers and they're the same price. I also have a buddy who has a $80 Power A with paddles for a cheaper option who loves it.

    I'll switch here soon enough, never making the same mistake with the elite until I see some worn reviews.

    Issue is people give reviews on controllers after 2 weeks and if I'm spending $200 on a controller I want it to last 2 years and elites simply won't do that.
