    Man this epic lawsuit is dragging all kinds of ugly shit out. Like it is sony that keeps games from being crossplay and when they are they charge companies extra for the crossplay because of the lost revenue to Sony.

    Meanwhile the MLB show 21 servers are still dogshit and SDS isn't saying shit there.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    It's never been a mystery that Sony was preventing crossplay, but charging for the function? So bad

    I believe your supremely foreign thread creator has gotten one.

    Me. I got one.

    Red Dead 2 Online is coming to gamepass/back to gamepass. Some other stuff too. PC is getting the weird sequel to final fantasy x.

    I'm really annoyed that FFIX is going away from Gamepass at the same time X/X-2 are being added. This feels like a bad faith way to technically add all the promised games from that presentation long ago, while doing it piecemeal and never actually adding the whole promised slate as they implied they would be. It's like how Netflix will offer Rocky 3, 4, and 7, but not 1-4 so you could just watch the series in a normal, enjoyable way.

    What I love is on twitter people immediately what about'd the xbox 360 days. Yep two wrongs definitely make it fine.

    That's an insult to Game Pass, it actually has bigger budget games in it's library. If Game Pass just had Jump Force and Prey and Evolve and every knockoff 2D sprite indie game, now you're more like Netflix a dab.

    I mean microsoft did buy a lot of smaller studios and not just the AAA ones, so clearly it was important to have a variety for people.

    So, Xbox thread, I need help. On a scale of 1 to FUBAR, where do I land?

    I recently purchased two Xbox Gold 12 month cards on Amazon, because my GPU was expiring. So I wanted to get Gold for 2 years then upgrade to GPU. I've read that this still works.

    The vendor on Amazon sent me two Canadian Xbox Live cards. I looked up online, and to activate these I needed to change my region to Canada. No big deal, so I did so, the cards redeemed, everything seemed copasetic. But then, when I tried to upgrade to GPU, I get a region error. So, I tried on PC. Region error.

    Then I contacted Support through the web, who told me they couldn't do anything, and that I had to contact the vendor. I put in an Amazon ticket, and am currently ready to mail back the cards, but I don't think that will do anything. Because, after all, I did redeem the cards. And I'm not sure that the vendor can do anything to fix an account lock on Microsoft's side.

    So, is there anything I can do to get my account upgraded to GPU? Or am I just boned for the next two years?

    Did you try the GPU sub after changing your region to Canada again?

    So this Canadian got the Xcloud on iOS invite. Gave it a try and had a helluva time. Could not use my controller, even though it is connected to the iPad. The touch controls were extremely laggy to the point of it being unplayable. I guess these issues could have all been due to my kinda crappy Canadian wifi, even though I’m currently getting 29 up and 56 down.

    Yes. It won't let me because the region on my payment doesn't match the region I am purchasing it for.

    I'd go back to MS and advise the cards are already redeemed. Do you have other payment methods tied to the account, like your VISA?

    As you've already activated cards, I'm going to join @Nosf and call Microsoft by phone again (chat support may also work if you're there at the right time). It's tedious to be sure, but historically they're over-forgiving and overly lenient in these kind of scenarios. Unfortunately in Amazon's case, at the very least you're still going to have that Gold subscription time, on top of consciously buying subscription time listed as not in your region, which gives you less room.

    I tried their road to october, even on fucking rookie it was miserable. The mariners in the game are like extra hard mode, no one on the team is above a silver aside from gen fucking giles and he's not even in the lineup as their closer.

    I call them and they told me the only thing I can do is wait 90 days for the region change cooldown to expire. They attempted to change my region for me, but got the same error.

    I thought it was just that I can’t hit and while that turned out to be true, hitting as the Mariners is like having the whole team be a slap hitting rookie in double A ball who is also a pitcher.

    It's not want you want to hear, but generally, I've always avoided buying different region subscription time for this reason. But at least they were willing to try and help you.

    Sony has registered a trademark for Insomniac’s Xbox exclusive Sunset Overdrive. The game's director re-joined earlier this year, after a period working at Microsoft.

    https://vgc.news/news/sony-registers-trademark-for-insomniacs-xbox-shooter-sunset-overdrive/

    Looks like Sunset Overdrive is moving from one exclusive platform to the other

  • FuriousJodoFuriousJodo Registered User regular
    Sunset Overdrive was great - bummer if a sequel stays exclusive to one platform or the other but happy to see that franchise may continue.

    Sunset Overdrive is one of those games that I really wanted to see get a sequel because it had problems but there was something there. A sequel that let them figure it out some more could have been great, but alas...

    Interesting--I could see Sunset Overdrive going the Hellblade route (Playstation exclusive, widely promoted but not nearly as well received, before being purchased by a competitor entirely).

    Better than nothing I suppose.

  • Local H JayLocal H Jay Registered User regular
    I'm assuming it's because Insomniac owned the IP anyways so why not

    I hope it comes to PS4 too so I don't need a 5

    Sad to hear about the departures at @giantbomb, one of the highlights of E3 each year was spending time with the the team getting to talk about the news of the show. All the best to everyone.

    3 of the founding members of Giant Bomb (Brad, Vinny, and Alex) are leaving on Friday, announced earlier. Every year Phil would do a very candid livestreamed interview with Jeff Gerstmann and them, it was always a highlight of the whole show.
