Fucking hell. It was harder to sign up for Fanfest tonight than it was to preorder the Series X.
Not sure if its just my internet (because other websites were slow) but registering to fan fast was easy, but the whole Microsoft website was damn slow.

Why do you have to sign up? What do you get?

Its pretty barebones right now. All there is is a thing to opt in for a trivia thing on Oct 23 right now. I imagine it should get more fleshed out as it goes.

I thought they were doing a trivia tonight, but it didn’t happen.

Tales of Vesperia is a big pickup, not the PS3 version but still very complete on its own.

I got my nieces Heave Ho on Switch. Surprisingly good $10 game. I liked it. And the kids loved it. Too bad it loos like PC GP only.

Another hype video, anyone? Hang tight through the Mattrick parts at the beginning
Hype video, reminds me of the great games i've been able to experience on the platform especially Halo, Obviously this Gen was terrible but Xbox played a huge part in my career in the game industry and esports

Xbox just updated to the new UI, similar to what was there but when you look into your games and managing them theres some nice improvements. I like the overall look of it and its pretty smooth.

Rock Band 4 and all DLC will work on the next generation consoles day 1. We believe previously supported instruments should work as expected. See below for a full list of what was tested.

You'll notice a pretty sizable performance increase on both consoles, especially with load times. Getting into gameplay has never been faster, even with large library sizes! Both the new Xbox and PlayStation consoles are on par with each other when it comes to load times. Impressive across the board.

Interesting.

I'm excited because my g/f and I still play RB regularly and have a ton invested in DLC.
