    @mikew1985 interesting, I hadn't twigged - just assumed that was the add on for Dishonored 1 but you're right. Bit strange they haven't done 2 then... I can only assume there must be something causing a problem for it as it's so conspicuous by its absence.

    I'm approx halfway through Dishonored 2 and have parked it in the hope it will get some treatment.

    As user convercide said earlier in the thread, the extremely narrow FOV is a pain too. Great game otherwise.

    Dishonored 2 got an Xbox One X upgrade patch too.

    But I don't think the lack of boost is due to bad performance. Even the Series S can run Death of the Outsider at 60fps, and anything the S can do, the X should easily laugh at. More likely they just have some other issues to iron out. I guess it will arrive eventually, same for other Bethesda games.

    My Series X wonít stream from video services anymore for some reason. Disney Plus gives error 39 which seems like a really generic error code when I googled it, All4 just says something went wrong, and Netflix plays audio but the video is black.

    Iíve tried killing apps, restarting etc. Games are fine, and YouTube plays videos fine too. Very odd, Iím guessing itís some kind of video DRM thing.
    Are you in the preview programme? I had this issue with Netflix years ago and so opted out.

    Got notified by discord and actually found in stock. Ordered and still says in stock, odd that's been whole 5 mins.

    Edit: and gone.

    Ah, I made an assumption based on the age of Dishonoured 2 that it hadn't actually gotten one and I played it on PC rather than Xbox one at the time so never noticed it receiving the update. It is rather conspicuous by it's absence from the FPS boost list but also it and death of the outsider not being on Game Pass is odd.

    Leave Sheckly alone guys. A console that improves the performance of older games is clearly massively inferior to one that leaves them as is. Next you'll be touting the ability to play 360 games as something even remotely desirable. Come on.

    The best bit is that he's been posting about how he's been putting off playing Returnal in order to play Nier - which by his own account is LAST GEN and thus null and void in gaming terms.

    In other news:

    I pre-ordered this and it turned up last week. It seems pretty great so far:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08NDT2CGS/

    I havent had much time to play with it as returnal and a few other things have been sucking up my time but its super solidly built, the buttons are microswitched with virtually no travel and the analogue stick has an otagonal gate, which works super well.

    If you play fighting games on the Xbox/PC, A+ would recommend.

    I'd been having issues with quick resume on Jedi Fallen Order where it tells me my account sign-in has changed and kicks me to the menu. Have found it's no longer an issue if I boot up another game before switching off. More than slightly janky but preferable to losing progress!

    Fallen Order was the first game I played (properly) when I got my Series X, and I found Quick Resume worked until it didn't. Sometimes it was fine even if my kids had ran a few different games in between my sessions, sometimes it'd crap out on me without anything getting played in between.

    I've found QR seems to be more stable now (in general, I finished FO), and games either support it and work, or don't support it at all. The ability to go in and see what games are part of QR is a big help too.

    QR has been a load of bollocks for me because i mainly play games which have an online component.

    Fuck what has happened to me.

    How does quick resume compare to the One X? As find that flawless, turning the console on and jumping straight back into the game.

    Is the Series X version of it basically the same just with 5 games vs 1 game? Or is their more to it. If as flawless then can see why people say it's the killer feature.

    Some older games handle it better than others. Going forward I think all games will handle it well.

    Hitman 3 for example just senses it lost server connection when you turned the game off last week and just tries again. Seamless

    The Division 2 however will boot you back to the character select screen.

    Right now Iíd say 8/10 games have been great for me on QR, and that has been transformative for how many games I can just jump back into, and therefore how many games Iím finishing.

    @Sharz Quick resume on Series X is flawless with AC Odyssey and useless with AC Valhalla for me so far by way of a quick comparison. Brilliant when it works in general - it's a really convenient timesaver.

    So odd that the game which has a native Series X sku is the one with issues with Quick Resume.

    I just got my Series X on Monday and I've yet to mess with QR. I have a tendency to just close a game when I'm done playing it, but there is a noticeable delay on start up, particularly coming off the PS5. QR should eliminate that though, I'd imagine.

    Itís not even that quick when it does work, more like it just highlights how slow games are to load in the first place.
