Red Dead Redemption is coming to backwards compatability on Friday. One of my top three all time favorite games.
I've actually been thinking of playing that again this summer, so this is great news.

Best Buy is offering $125 trade-in for an XBOX One. I'm taking mine after I get everything transferred over. I don't think I can get much better than that.

Nothing mind blowing. Did love the total Xbox backwards compability coming soon. OG XB games here we come. Forza looked amazing. Not sure if I'll upgrade to a Xbox One X 1X 1

no VR? blah. System sounds good but it isn't enough of an update for me to buy. I'm a pretty casual gamer, so this probably isn't really aimed at me.

I hold on to most of my games and systems, and they take up the whole walk in closet. the one major game i need compatible is Rogue Trooper. a damn fine game. they released it for wii much later on, but i hate controlling ti with motion control gimmick :(

Same here, I'm at 90GB's and afraid that it will be full with the next game. I've been eyeing the Xbox one by Seagate just to avoid any compatibility issues, but it seems you're paying for the name. As you can get one about half that price. So I've been comparing the WD easy store from BB. Not really sure about brands I've never heard of, but HD's can't be to complicated now days.

I've been using a 4T WD for years, no issues with it at all.
I think either would be fine, so long as they use AC power and not power from the console.

Just saw Best Buy has an 8T on sale for $179, normally $300. I would have jumped on that if I didn't already have one.

What's wrong with drawing power from the Console? My power strip is maxed out as it is, so i wasn't looking forward to adding another unit that requires power.

From what I understand.....and I'm definitely not a computer guy mind you...but the powered drives have a larger internal disk, and they run at a faster speed. I have no idea if you would ever notice the difference if you were playing a game directly off your drive or not, but that was enough reason for me.

Xbox Live is selling the digital version of Elder Scrolls Online for $10. It's just the base game, but there is a ton of content in there for a great price. Bought it today just to have it digitally and not to have to fool with the disc.
I didn't care much for ESO when it first came out, but they fixed everything that people had issues with, and now it is awesome. I put a ton of time into it, just playing it as a single player game.

Shadow Warrior is free this month with Xbox Live Gold.
It's a great, mindless shooter/slasher, well worth your time if you haven't tried it yet. The dialogue is just hilarious, but you definitely don't want to play it around kids.
I already have it on disc, but I downloaded it again to have it digitally and to have an excuse to play it again.

So a new Halo, Gears & Forza.

Although, great, I really wasn't blown away by their press conference.

Most of the games shown were not even exclusive.

Apparently word is MS is looking to the next Gen. Yeah they’ll still pump out games, but they are basically taking the loss this Gen and looking to the future...
