    Might grab a game pass code for my niece as it's her birthday next week. Nice easy gift each year if they always have a deal on

    Nintendo of America have announced the dates for some of the FF releases, though I imagine they'll be the same days on Xbox. X/X-2 is April 16, and XII on April 30th. These are US dates, but I imagine they'll be the same days in Europe, or at least thereabouts - I'm pretty sure World of Final Fantasy was the same day.

    @Mrsyms1 black dessert looks stunning but my short time with it on pc showed the enemy ai to be very lacking. Maybe its improved since then, hope so.

    Just got 14 months Gold for £29.98 using the 3+3 months Gold for £14.99 from Amazon deal on the front page.

    As someone mentions in the comments, when entering the first 3 month code, if you have recurring payments already turned off, MS offer to give you 1 month free if you turn on recurring. I accepted, got the free month, then cancelled the recurring payment straight after. The free month still registered.

    Then I entered the next 3 month code however this time the 1 month free offer didn't show up...so 7 months Gold for £14.99 at that point...not bad.

    10 minutes later I thought fuck it may as well get another 6 months for that price. When i entered the third 3 month code, MS again offered up 1 free month to turn on recurring payment so i again accepted as above.

    I left it another 10 minutes before inputting the fourth 3 month code but wasn't offered a free month again so im unsure whether it was a glitch or I didn't leave it long enough before entering the codes...anyway happy with what i got. Love a good deal! :)

    Those that upgraded from the original Xbox One to the X, has it proved to be "worth it", from an overall enhanced experience perspective?

    Considering upgrading myself. For context, I have a 4K TV (don't think it's got HDR/Dolby Vision though) and Dolby Atmos surround sound speakers. Ta.

    @FIFAfan Totes. I upgraded from an S. Been great for my FPS games, some of which went up to 4k (mostly) from sometimes quite below 1080p, and smooth gameplay too. Also nice in some games to have the choice between resolution and framerate.

    It is a great piece of kit, imho. I also have a pc w a 1070 which was quite a bit more expensive than an X and it can definitelt not so 4k in 60fps for any recent releases - i just it for VR. That really is the major con for me vs the PS4 - if the next xbox gen doesnt have VR, I will be disappointed.

    I get the feeling the original Xbox one also stopped VR this gen. Will also be disappointed if the next Xbox doesn't support it or AR

    Games are massively improved but the operating system is still a laggy mess. Expect delays when navigating the Xbox menu, and apps that wonít load until you do a hard reset (if you use the Ďinstant oní function).

    Overall itís still a worthwhile upgrade. My favourite is some games offering a jump from 30 to 60fps.

    I might re-download FC2. It's probably my favourite FC. Not sure I'd ever play it again in case it ruined my memories of it, but maybe I will.

    I still recall the atmosphere and world being great back on the 360. A bit of diamond searching might be fun too.

    Except for those damn outposts....

    Would love an X enchantment to Far Cry 2.

    So hope the Next Box has some hardware wizardry to enchant the whole BC library pretty much rather than this piecemeal approach.

    Maybe one day there'll be a way to play decades old games at higher resolutions and framerates without requiring permission to do so.

    Anybody else had their system performance turn shitty over the past week? The dash has been laggier than usual, and should I try and launch the store, or another app, I'll see a black screen until I see the 'Try again in a while' message.

    @askew I've noticed loads more lag and blank screens between transitions on the dashboard in the past couple of weeks. Haven't had an update or anything recently, maybe it's hit a memory buffer or something?

    Possibly. I'm seeing that games are being closed overnight too, so that the option is to 'Launch' rather than 'Resume'.

    My one x has been a bit ropey some times recently too.

    Dropped live today and thought it was going to lock up it was so slow.

    Eventually sorted, but couldn't use mix for maj nelson's show, so looks like it was xbl having issues.

    So I just spontaneously bought an Xbox one X today. Strangely I feel no buyers remorse yet.

    Give it a bit longer Jambo, if I remember rightly it took a while (but it was a while ago).

    In my experience (and Iíve had all the versions) thereís always something on the Xbox ones that doesnít work as it should. Over the years Iíve found them rather finicky.
