Let’s talk about X baby!

  1. The name: “Xbox One X” releases 11/7/17
  2. The price: $499 (Vladz was right) Value? 4k 60 fps Big time value
  3. How does it look: tiny, black xbox one s
    1. Where is the tiny fps screen that was on the dev kits?
  4. Wow moments:  Wow xbox sucks at presentations. They need to work on this big time. They most hype was Terry Crews. Hire someone please next time. I yawned, stared in disbelief and I’m a fan of there stuff. Can’t imagine what the haters had to say. Edited down to these  3 minutes would have helped

The games

  1. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (Battle Points aka Killstreaks, more points to spawn with your squad vs solo,  etc. – Oh, and all the DLC ‘seasons’ will be FREE!!) Battlefront II’s first season of themed DLC launches in December, themed around this year’s new Star Wars film, The Last Jedi.
  2. Battlefield 1 – IN THE NAME OF THE TSAR  (new night maps this July & Eastern front maps & Russia armies) – 8 new maps total, new weapons, new point systems, new stories, new stuff…. I love that they took a great game and added enough new stuff to keep you in the game. Seems more that just DLC but expansion on the game you already own and love to play. Plus there is stuff they are holding back until Gamescon in August. Can’t wait.
