    Was just about to say you can preload The Medium and play it next week for the first bit of truly new shiny this gen, but seems I'm not up to speed with the news!
    Wasn't that pushed back to January?

    Observer Redux and DMC5 SE too.

    Depending on how you feel about them being remasters of X1 games.

    Anyone enabled dev mode to load up retroarch? How long does it take for it to be enabled on your console after signing up?
    I assume you saw the ETA Prime video? That GC racing game at 7.44 looked stunning! Auto Modellista I think.

    Whoever mentioned the workaround for streaming games to PC. I got it up and running this afternoon, however it seems it's not streaming over the local network, the test app I have access to is streaming from my xbox to the cloud and back.

    It's running ok but I'd prefer the local solution.

    On a related note the same app gives me access to xCloud from my PC.

    Edit: Need some special code to access the xCloud portion, which makes me think the streaming is possibly local.

    @mikew1985 That was me. Is that what it's doing? I had no idea but I had noticed it wasn't running as nicely as before, I guess that's why. That's interesting though as presumably I could stream from anywhere as with xCloud 🤔

    I wonder if they'll bring the local streaming back though as it used to work well.

    Performance is definitely worse than it was for me previously. It's holding frame rate ok, just artefacting to fuuuuuck on larger vistas or shots with a lot of motion.

    Edit: I was just checking out that emulation video and was kicked out of my "cloud" session with the game streaming... hmmm

    Edit2: Of course really I'm hard at work at the end of a busy Friday

    Yeah that's exactly what I've noticed. When it's in a cinematic it's very sharp but pretty ropey in motion. It's definitely worse than it was but at least it's something.

    Does streaming locally using the Xbox companion app not work any more? Could've sworn I saw the option in that the other week.

    @dfunked09 Yeah the option is there it just doesn't work on Series X and presumably S. Just says remote play is disabled on your console or words to that effect, even though it isn't.

    On phone it does.

    On the Pc Companion app no, if you try to stream from a "non-one" family of devices it doesn't work.

    Ah, damn... Hadn't gotten as far as setting that up with my S yet... Used it quite a lot with the last gen.

    Nope think it runs across all xbox systems.

    Speaking of all xbox systems, I just sold the one x there along with my pro earlier in the week, covered my ps5 digital. Well worth doing.

    I used to love holding onto the old hardware but with these it seems entirely pointless to do so.

    @Baihu1983 Iíve found the UI so awkward to use, which is a shame as I was really looking forward to this back on Xbox

    Iíve only played it for 10 mins but I found it horrible to play too. Having different buttons to click for interacting with the different areas and then buttons within that section .... just too messy and confusing.

    I believe thereís an option to bring up a cursor so I might try that.

    Help.. I bought black ops cold war for my dad's Christmas so downloaded it to play on my XSX. Its standard edition, how do I get the shiny edition? I thought I'd be offered to update from the main menu but there's nothing.

    Depends which version you bought, there are two versions the standard which is current gen only or the the cross generation version which gives you the next gen upgrade. It should say specifically which version you bought. Seeing as it's the xbox version, then smart delivery should give you the correct next gen version but it appears as if you've bought the current gen version which will not give you the shiny.

    @Hiphopopotamus if you didn't buy the cross-gen edition, there should be a $10 upgrade option on the store.

    Only works with digital copies though, physical owners who bought the standard edition are out of luck.
