    I’ve heard good things about the first Gears of War, never played it though.

    All I care about is Gears tbh, and it hasn't been the same since Gears 3. Gamepass is nice though.

    Good. Xbox as a console brand has been useless for years

    The way everyone I know has moved on from XBox is kinda funny. :emoji_laughing:
    like it’s actually insane how little anyone cares for that console at all now. 360 Days were amazing tho. Guess all things die

    If they’d announce a new gears and had creators from 2 and 1, I’d buy the Xbox before the game came out. Gears 2 was my all time multiplayer favorite with friends. The insane wall bouncing skill n how competitive it was. They shouldn’t have let gears die out.

    That and remake halo 2 and 3 release them for the time being until they put another good halo out. This is the only way Microsoft could save Xbox, but those games probably won’t be the same.

    Gears 2.5 and 2 and 3 remasters would be nice, but they have to make G6 first.

    The 360 was definitely a game changer no pun intended for Microsoft, but even then it wasn't actually the market leader and had large issues of its own that generation.

    This is bad news though. There needs to be competition. If PlayStation is the only viable high end console option then God knows what they'll charge for it.

    I'm happy Playstation won the war but if Microsoft call it quits then someone else needs to throw their hat in the ring.

    We will see when they announce the next Switch. I understand that they make consoles for kids and they can’t charge like 600 bucks.

    If the switch 2 games aren’t compatible with the Oled switch I’ll be furious. The info so far the screen is smaller n looks worse than the Oled. The technology won’t even be ps4 level. They’re depending on a AI to clean up graphics in a game. Id bet they have Odyssey 2 saved to release with it to sell, but they won’t have a new Zelda to save them in a while. Remakes are getting stale.

    And charging 400 for another handheld that can’t run games like re4 remake, ff7 remake, god of war, even spider man. They should be releasing a new powerhouse console at least close to ps5 to where they can run newer unreal engine games. Especially with Microsoft quitting, they but the halo rights give it to the Zelda creators n they could release a classic. There’s other handhelds getting more popular with better software, Nintendo will lose out when one becomes more affordable that computer companies are making. Some are impressive.

    It's a console for kids, they don't need amazing graphics, but at least release something that looks good, some of their games look like the new Tomb Raider remaster lol

    That's one of the reasons I don't own one. I haven't played Pokemon since Game Boy Color, nah mean, that s---'s giving me blue pokeballs :SADWAYNE:
