    If you are expecting a huge power shift over the X then I hope you don't mind paying top dollar for it. Not enough time has passed for hardware to change enough for it to be cost effective to be significantly better than the X. 4k 60 gaming is very expensive on pc and that is what needs to happen for a significant step over the X.

    If you haven't got the Microsoft Rewards app, you really should before spending in the Black Friday sale. MS is currently doing Ä5 for 3,500 points. Don't know what the Sterling equivalent is. You get points for a monthly survey, daily shopping activities like going to the store page for a certain games and mostly from buying stuff. I've got about Ä20 back recently from buying RDR2 and some stuff in the sale.

    Also posted this on the Xbox X thread. THought might be of interest to non-X owners too

    You can get 12m Games Pass for 55 quid via a Christmas Special deal from MS.

    What are people expecting from the next Xbox?

    Faster CPU, slightly faster GPU. 4k as standard. Probably not going to be 60fps as standard. Full backwards compatibility. Is forwards compatibility realistic? I think the leap over the One X will be fairly modest in comparison to previous generations.
    The same as every generation, the performance of a game will depend entirely on what developers want to achieve with graphical fidelity/AI/simulation..

    There is no such thing as a 4K/60 machine. If the devs prioritise fidelity and simulation and want to push the envelope in these respects then something will take a hit, be it frame rate or resolution.

    As Iíve said before in these forums, the PS1 had 60fps games (Gran Turismo had a 60fps mode with huge compromises).

    The next gen will unlock the potential to hit 4K/60 in more instances but never expect every game to hit this....unless itís mandated by the platform holder...and even in this instance (as has happened in the past) those rules are often relaxed later on.

    Yep. Hope it will be an incentive for them to add more games eventually. We're still stuck at the April batch.

    That's unpossible. It has Mercenaries in it.

    I remember buying Mercenaries on disc when it was made backwards compatible on Xbox 360 and there were a couple of compatibility bugs that made it impossible to play past the first ten minutes...

    I'm assuming that Xbox One uses updated emulation

    EDIT - just looking at this list. What a shame it is that BMX XXX is not playable on Xbox One

    Yeah, Mercenaries PAL is effectively unplayable on 360. However, I'm going to assume they fixed the issues, or they wouldn't be giving it out.

    Since there's currently that one month for one euro offer, I ended up paying and I'll get myself Mercenaries when it comes out. And I suppose I'll also be playing the single player in Battlefield 1, since it was included in this month's batch.

    DA2 had some issues, but I do really like it.

    Fuck knows if we'll ever get another DA now.

    @J*C Actually, I just checked, and apparently Fortnite is one of the games that currently supports it! Shows how much I know.

    @imamazed They fixed it on Panzer Dragoon Orta so I would expect the same here.

    I just finished Cuphead but I couldn't find a specific thread for it and I just had to mention it somewhere. I got it when I got my X last year and have been dipping in and out since so it's been a bit of a journey. Looking forward to the DLC... kinda.
