    Probably not much free to play that I'd be interested in playing online I guess.
    It would be nice if they removed the need for gold for FO76 and the like. I mean IP that needs online and they own.

    Yep. Only thing I play is Star Trek Online and that's just the daily stuff for events - I've gone just about as far as you can without dropping tons of money for it.

    All it really affects are all the Fortnight kids, and Apex etc..

    I think they're gearing up to get rid of gold portion completely and stick with Ultimate Game Pass for everything - which might be needed for online or they'll drop needing a sub completely for online.

    Been keeping an eye out for quite a while now, but finally found a USB cable for my Action Replay DS EZ at work yesterday in a box of random cables and crap

    Shit that reminds me that I have to get a nice long USB cable so I can plug in my Xbone controller to the PC across the room for that odd time I wanna emulate an old game or whatever.

    The one I have now just randomly stopped working.

    Standard type cables are easy to find, I have a whole box of various types including extensions.
    The AR DS uses a unique proprietary plug on the cart end. You can buy replacement cables online but none are available locally dirt cheap.

    For PC why don't you get a wireless dongle for the XB1 controller?

    I think it's bluetooth for Xbone controllers. Still, either way I guess I could. Then I might have to screw around pairing it each time though since the Xbox is just a few feet away.

    Also just habit I guess, leave a cable along the wall to my chair and can just reach down and plug it in. A 10 footer should do it and they're only like 10 bucks.

    People had to pay to use their internet to play "free" games ?

    Most of the free to play games are shit anyway so I certainly don't care. As I already said it'd be nice if they made online free for some IPs they own like FO76 though.

    At least it's actually possible to stick old game discs in the console and download an upgraded digital version... for free.
    With Sony shutting down all pre-PS4 content I'd be really surprised if they're going to do any proper BC like they originally talked about, besides PS4 discs in PS5. Which isn't anything worth talking about.

    I mean it isn't worth talking about as far as BC is concerned because series S/X do that as well as another 2 gens back without having to repurchase anything.

    But I can say bad things about M$ too.
    Gamepass could be cheaper imo, but I guess many people think it's good value already.
    I don't like the series X storage. The new consoles don't look great but at least it's just boring and not bloody ugly as hell
    I know they've been concentrating on making the current library work well but I'd like to see more old games added. Probably won't happen again last for gen consoles now though but one can still hope.

    Haven't looked at the new controllers, I'm not even sure if you can still use your own batteries
    Like most new consoles I won't be getting the new gen for a while yet. No need.
    I wouldn't mind an XB1 X though if I could find one bnib cheap.

    Personally I think GP is a good deal. 19 bucks after tax per month Canadian and 379 games. Sure easily half of them are garbage but there's still alot of good AAA titles, indies and such.

    I believe working on bringing BC titles to the Boner stopped last summer - they'll continue with the Series though.

    I agree the storage is ridiculous. 300 bucks for a 1tb addon card which you need for Series games (Not that there's more than a couple games exclusively for the new system but that will change in the years to come) At least you can use any external for One and previous games though.

    I believe the controller is the first gen "elite" one. Dunno about batteries though, I want to say yes but

    I still have the money set aside for a series X. 7 months later and you still can't find one unless it's from a scalper. If I walk into a shop and happen to see one then bam I'll nab it.

    Taking a break from downloading PS4 dumps atm, I've got around 3.5TB now and have most backported stuff I want.
    Now onto pirating Vita/PSP/PSone Classics stuff
