  1. Not to be some sort of ignorant dolt, but we watch stuff in game mode because we were flicking between game and movie mode not really knowing what game mode doesn't do as well. What do movie mode and the like actually bring to the table? All I've ever seen is people saying that game modes have worse visuals, but not going into details. I promise I have eyes.
  2. Thinking about getting an S for the spare room but a quick look says it's not in stock on the MS website. Do they still generally just not exist for the time being?
  3. My pair of 7X that I ordered a couple weeks ago came today with no import charge. Had all the delays with bad weather last week and Brexit-related hold ups, but no extra fees to get my mitts on them. Anyway, I'm well impressed. Had a faff on Control and they sound great, and even listening to music on my phone they're wicked. I've never really bothered with proper gaming headphones but they've become more necessary with us living on top of each other a lot more these days. I got the Dolby Atmos licence after deciding it sounded better than the DTS equivalent. Any other bits or pref
  4. Anyone know whether Quick Resume does or doesn't work for some people or everybody all or none of the time?
  5. I agree with all the opinions in this thread. It's sublime and terrible at the same time, but I didn't mind that at all. It scratches a particular sci-fi itch that few other things do, and it's gorgeous throughout (apart from the faces). It's infuriating at times due to the terrible signposting, but it provided more than a few zen moments. There's something very soothing about following loads of steps just to open a door, even if the 'puzzle' of it feels arbitrary and disconnected from what it is I'm doing. Same with the story. The presentation was excellent and had me staring at
  6. Might be cos you pissed in it?
  7. The play & charge kit is just a battery that goes in the controller, rather than a new black battery cover too. So you're already golden unless you really need a white USB C cable to go with it.
  8. Daft question I can't find an answer to on the internet. If I'm playing a game on one Xbox, save it, and then play on another Xbox later without closing the game on the first console, does the save sync or will it try to download my save from before I started playing?
  9. To be fair, it's not necessary to have 'no sense of humour' for that post to come off as a bit much.
  10. The official one is just the same battery as the old one but with a USB C cable.
  11. Do we know what the instant on and energy saving modes actually do and don't do? The summarising bullets seem a bit vague. Will it download updates in energy mode and only rev up when needed, or do I need to have instant on mode for that? I don't see myself using any of the instant on, especially seeing as it boots so quickly and quick resume works from a cold boot anyway, but I'd like to avoid having to update games when I want to be playing them.
  12. For anyone wondering about the new play and charge kit like I was, I got one today and it's the same battery pack as for the One/One X, just bundled with a USB C cable instead of the old one. Same model and everything.
  13. Feeling pretty fancy setting this up. From the tabs on the sticky tape on the outside of the box to the little set-up instructions card that stands up on its own, to the textured grip and triggers/bumpers on the new controller, it really feels like MS have thought the whole thing through. A very nice thing to experience day one. The little chonker even looks like it's floating a little because of the circular stand. Happy next gen day!
  14. It's here!!!!!! Now transferring everything over from my One X.... It's a bit of a hefty boi, but it's much smaller than I expected. Gonna get an S sometime in the new year for the spare room - can't imagine how dinky that will be.
  15. For Argos orders, just now the people on the customer services chat were just able to tell me it had been dispatched, and even gave me my tracking code. My mobile details were wrong when they were sending out texts yesterday, and I haven't got an email or seen an update on the website (still sitting tight!). Worth a crack if you've got 30 minutes to sit about waiting to get in the chat.
