    4k60 would be best, but fair play to Square Enix for at least offering the option to choose between 4k and 60 fps.

    Good news all around!

    Sony really needs a rival to drive innovation and customer driven decisions. Looks like the massive misstep that Microsoft made at the beginning of this generation may be the best thing that could have happened to the gaming industry. The future of console gaming looks pretty good right now.

    The idea of governmental involvement in video games (for any reason) just makes me think: Be careful what you wish for...you just may get it.

    Today it is loot boxes, but what is next? "We have to protect the children!!!!"

    I think the easiest way to squash the loot box craze would be to make all games that offer paid for loot boxes be rated AO (Adults Only). Stores would not carry them, and that alone would likely cause the publishers to cut loot boxes out of their games.

    Ewok Hunt was surprisingly fun and tense. As a Stormtrooper, every time I heard the Ewok horn I would nervously check my surroundings and sneaking up on an unsuspecting player as an Ewok was great.

    Not a mode to play for a long time, but it was really fun for an hour or two.

    I appreciate them coming right out and telling me point blank that I am not wanted as a customer.

    I only ever bought the COD games for the single player. They were (generally) fun to blast through, in an over the top action movie way.

    Loved this game. Best memories are of the crazy destruction of buildings and the car delivery time trails.

    Will definitely be picking this reMARster up.

    I totally agree. $70 for this? It is almost as if Nintendo has a track record of making fun games that are enjoyed by all ages and represent value for money. And cardboard? For a game to be played by adults and children which will likely get broken/damaged and need a replacement?

    Nintendo can go sell their snake oil elsewhere. I for one am not buying this fresh and unique experience.

    The point I think is getting overlooked is that Microsoft doesn't get all $60 when you buy physical disks, but they do get all $120 when you subscribe to Game Pass. It would take someone buying 3 or more games (at full price) for them to make as much money as they take in with a Game Pass subscription.

    This seems like a no brainer to me. They will lose out on the few(er) gamers who buy every exclusive at full price, but that should be way offset by the number of people subscribing to their Game Pass service. More people try the game, more people buy DLC (or microtransactions) = Win for Microsoft.

    This isn't a way to get more microtransactions into their games (those already exist - see Halo). These games will still be sold stand alone for full price. I don't see this as some evil nefarious scheme, just a smart business move by Microsoft. Netflix gives away all of their first party output on their subscription and also sells it separately. Seems to work for them.

    I hadn't noticed an issue with the map rotation other than when The Last Jedi came out. For that first weekend it was Crait 95% of the time. Fun at first, since it was the new map, but after awhile I was wishing for any other map.
