We are talking the same development team, the same tools, the same story, same characters, same engine, same direction. And one of the greates dev teams in the last 20 years. And its taking 5 years for them.
Imagine now a new team, new management, having to create characters, stories, define an engine, do trial and error of concepts, learn new technologies, etc. Of course they wont do it in 2, or 4 years for the case. Iwill probably take 5 as a bare minimum, though a more realistic estimation is something betwen 5 to 7 years probably.
What team are you thinking about?
All MS 1st party teams except The Initiative and Playground’s Fable team are old and proven teams and while I’m sure we’ll see new stuff nobody expect them to just drop the old popular IPs they know very well how to interate on.
For example; Gears, Doom, The Outer Worlds, Forza, Wolfenstein, Wastelands, Hellblade, State of Decay, etc.
Some are already known to come.

The teams most mysterious are Compulsion and Double Fine. Is We Happy Few 2 and Psychonauts 3 happening? I’m guessing no, I think they’re doing all new IPs now.
Rare is a mystery too, I think they’re doing more than Sea of Thieves expansions and Everwild.

I hate that this thread got moved to communities...... It's so dead....anyways, enough complaints! What is everyone playing on Xbox recently?

I am playing As Dusk Falls. Kinda surprised by this game, it's actually good. The artstyle took a while to get used to, though, but it works. Will replay it to make different choices.
I just put that in my "play later' list. Sounds like I need to try it sooner rather than later

Moder Warfare is 67% off, I'm tempted as hell. Is the community still active? Is there something I should know/be aware off? From all the MP footage I saw it looks very grounded, simple run&gun gameplay, kind of like CoD4. Also most of the maps are reskinned CoD4/BO/MW2 maps which is awesome. But then again, when the acquisition goes through all CoDs will land on GP, so I don't know :/ What to do what to do?!?
Yeah plenty still play. I still play the OG MW remastered tho.

Powerwash Sim is most likely my 2nd favorite game after ER this year. For a week or even more I have just about 0 interest in playing anything else. I’m still trying to figure out why but the game is seriously addictive.

I had some save game issue and it didn’t save me cleaning up the subway station. It takes a long time to clean it so I got pissed off and decided to delete the game. It didn’t last because I was playing it again one hour later.

Awesome. Looks like the shmups that typically skipped Xbox for the past several years and finally showing up.
Perhaps the Xbox Series' good sales in Japan is the root?

Im hoping someone will backlog a bit and put some of the already released Cave titles and stuff like Psyvariar/Rolling Gunner/Crimson Clover.

Its interesting looking at Japanese players Xbox profiles ive recently matched up with or have tried to outscore on leaderboards - Japanese players almost all are playing the entire Yakuza series on XB. It seems that was a big get - and to have the entire series on Gamepass was a good call for that region.

Trailer for Raiden IV.
2 things:
-Why in the world is this announced now but not releasing till 2023? Its a port that came out on switch like 2 years ago.
-Cool to see a shmup trailer posted on the official xbox yt channel.

My 360 Elite just broke. It will not read discs.
I found one of those Special Edition 360 Es on eBay. The blue one. It was a pretty good price. I went ahead and bought it.
I am thinking it would have cost as much to get the Elite fixed.

I also got the transfer cable to transfer my old hard drive data to the new XBox 360 E.

I assume they will factory reset the 360 E. I will have to check when I get it.

A guide on factory resetting.

The tray on my original Xbox would not open, but fear not! I had a replacement Xbox I got a while back. I just swapped it in.

Take that, broken disc drive.

Both my 360 and my original Xbox broke. What the hell?!?

It looks like I have to replace the belt on my original XBOX drive.
I really did not feel like taking it apart. Blargh.
I don't really have a place to work on it. I did open it up an replace the dvd drive a long time ago.

Hey, does that billboard still show video in Sunset Overdrive? I remember they were making that on online thing. I wondered if it died.

Also, I forgot some things about the original XBOX.
I forgot that it has a white and black button. Also, there are memory unit sockets in the controller.

I don't know if I want to mess with soft modding my original XBOXES. I may just carry over my saves using a couple memory cards.

I may fire up Dead Rising 3. I never really got into that one.

It is really annoying that the XBOX One is not backwards compatible with Dead Rising 1 and 2.
Yet, it can play the spinoff games.

The dead rising games are all on sale right now for Xbox One (not the triple pack bundle tho) have to buy each seperately. Might be worth it to rebuy them if you want to replay them.

I may just stick with my originals. Did they have multiplayer? I don't remember. I bet the third one had multiplayer.

My 360 came in the mail. They left all their data on it. I formatted it. Stupid people.

Good thing I am not a bad person.

I am transferring my data to it now.

The case is kind of scuffed up. I may try some plastic polish on it later on.
Anyone have any recommendations?

There were a whole bunch of profiles on it. So, it must have been from a big family with a boatload of kids or someone with a lot of friends.
