    Yeah, I believe some of the physics and extra visual effects in Crackdown 3 are only used in the online modes because they're offloaded to the cloud, too.

    I wonder how Forza performs offline.

    It plays fine you just have basic AI drivers... The thing that set Forza apart is the AI drivers where based on the driving behaviors of other gamers. It is totally funny to be racing against 5-6 of your other gamer friends as AI. The tougher you set the game the tougher gamers you play against with their trends. I know several of the programmers it is amazing how they use all that data to make better more real AI competition.

    Pre-orders are up for this... However, it has already sold out on Amazon. I got mine in just before it closed.

    Was hoping to learn more about original Xbox backwards compatibility tonight. Guess they're saving that for a bit later in the year.

    Their presentation tonight seemed like a bit of a dud, judging by the overview I just read.

    Wait, how can there be unboxing videos for something being released Nov. 7, 2017? A full 2 1/2 months away?

    Since we didn't see that one working, I'm guessing it's like the "dummy" ones in Microsoft stores. I was at one last month, saw an XBox1X with lights on and everything. I asked if it was a working prototype. The worker said "nah, it's just a dummy shell with working lights, just for display. Everything you see on the screen is pre-recorded."

    You could be right... It does seem weird unless some reviewers got early units. My normal Xbox reviewers have not got theirs yet that I'm aware of.

    Early builds may leak a month or less prior to launch. 2.5 months is pretty unbelievable. They're likely just beginning to ramp up for mass production. Packaging won't be finalized until closer to release date (they'll need to advertise games that will be available at launch, any bundles, late breaking promos etc.).

    I am not even sure if my question belongs in here but there are not many forums on the Xbox one x. I just preordered the console yesterday. I currently have the original x1. Does anyone know if the new x1x will have a built in mic? I use voice commands fairly often but I would rather not have to buy the Kinect adapter seeing as how there is no/little development for it. My wife also likes the voice commands so a headset is not really practical.

    It looked like the controller had the ability but I don't believe the console has. I have left voice controls behind with the Xbox One S. The connect adapter is probably your best option.

    Along with what I have now those will hold me a long time. Deal or no deal!

    Well looks like I'm going to have to buy Assassin's Creed. Even though I just watched the movie and it is H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. How can someone have taken 3 of my favorite actors (Fassbender, Irons and Cotillard) and turned out that movie? Only Lucas did less with more (Ep1-3) IMO. :laugh:

    I love DR4, and Injustice 2. Also playing COD WWII loving it, and cant wait to see these games enhanced. Although I hope HDR doesn't wreck any of them like certain games on the PS4

    Got mine a little after 9PM PST. Turns out MS stores were doing the same thing BB stores were. If it's midnight somewhere in your country, they'll sell it. Took a while to update to newest OS. Only had time to play one game: Destiny 2. I did the one thing that caused major slowdown: Trostland Public Event. Especially when the dropship is at the back of the church. Sometimes on my XB1S it would slow down to around 5-10 FPS due to number of enemies and supers/grenades, etc. Today I had 4 guardians in the instance, and when it came time to fight at the back of the church there was zero slowdown. It actually felt weird, but in a good way.
