    Forza Horizon 3 is getting delisted next month, so it's all on sale.

    They're delisting a forza horizon game? That seems bizarre to me. I know it's probably licensing related but still seems weird.

    FH2 was delisted 2 years ago, car or music licensing no doubt

    It's been a while since I did maths A-level but I don't understand how the ultimate games sale on Xbox can include stuff like Bulletstorm for £2.99 and Onrush for £4.99 and still only be billed as "up to 50% off"

    @hedben2013 It's 50% off the sale price for non gold members which is £5.99.

    @robthehermit Fair enough, in that case it's just weird that they make it up to 50% off sale price (which you can't really see anywhere) when they could say it's 80% off normal price

    Anyway I'm tempted by Bulletstorm, quite liked it back on x360 but never finished it

    @hedben2013 They're bigging up the advantage of having Gold. 50% off the sale price for Gold members sounds like more than an extra 10% off the regular price.

    Yeah, I'm not even sure when I'll play it, but for £3 something for the fancy version of Bulletstorm with Duke Nukem in i went for it. Remember loving it back in the day.

    My kids have really gotten into playing Minecraft with their cousins over lockdown, so I find myself on the hunt for some new headsets. I've rarely bothered with one, so not sure what to look for.

    Can anyone recommend some cheap but decent headset mics please? And will ones that work with an OG Xbox One controller also work with the new controllers, or has the connector changed at all?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    New ones just have a regular headphones jack. On the oldest version headphones just plug into the connector.

    I use the free headset that came with my samsung phone... so technically just need a pair of headphones with a microphone.

    Others will have recommendations in gaming specific headsets.

    @Technoishmatt OK, I thought that was the case. Cheers.

    Not brilliant, but it's a step in the right direction at least.

    If anyone is after an excellent rpg, I've been utterly absorbed by Pathfinder Kingmaker this week. Hot take; but I've actually enjoyed it more than both PoE and Divinity so far. Proper Baldurs Gate vibes.

    Does anyone know of a good list for the backwards compatible games that received One X upgrades?

    Shows which ones have X enhanced patches.

    Personally I've been playing a lot of SSX 3 from the OG Xbox. Can't believe how clean it looks at 4K. Load times are insanely fast too.

    Thatís great thanks. Just weighing up whether itís worth picking one up for playing some older games.

    @Switch-v85

    Depends what games you have in mind? Also, thing you can get refurb Xbox One X for £180 at the moment. If you've got an OG Xbone or an S you could trade that in towards the X to shave afew more quid off.

    Had to buy 2 new controller's.

    Back of my elite has pealed off which is a common issue looking online and my Scorpio controller has a fault which makes it suddenly do an up input all by itself. Even if I leave the controller alone it will just randomly register an up.

    Just got my Duke pad at the moment

    My refurbished One X has turned up. I'm still at work so not able to test it out yet but it looks brand new, not a mark on it. Fingers crossed it doesn't blow up when I plug it in.

    You could get one of those cheap silicon cases for your elite, they're not terrible and cover up a multitude of sins. I picked one up as a last resort as after having replaced the grips when the rubber fell off, it also started peeling off the back of the actual controller as well.

    The grips on my Elite v1 never had that problem. I got a touch of stick drift and a broken LB though (if you've ever opened up an XBO pad you'll immediately see why the bumpers break). MS just replaced the whole thing, out of warranty, which was handy.

    Now that I have a v2 I'm thinking of flogging the v1, but I'd have to fix the LB (again!) first.

    It was the back part that came off sadly not the grips you can change :(

    Played Book of Unwritten Tales 2 on gamepass when it was on there and its good point and click adventure. Played a little of the deblob port on xbox one and its fine in short bursts

    Division 2 is still £24.99 on xbox store. what a joke

    More OG Xbox stuff, hopefully that means Crimson Skies and Blinx will come up too eventually.
