4 years later, Ryse is still one of the best looking games on the xbox one! I wish we would get a 4k sequel for the X.

Why do people still make a photo of their screen? lol.

3 years later, people still make photos of their screens! I wish they could get a hint on how to press 2 buttons!

Is this a photo of your TV screen?

Great graphics, shallow gameplay/short campaign.

It was basically a tech demo.

M rated game Ads on the Dash

M rated game Ads on the Dash

So I saw a post on /sub/xbox that got me thinking a bit about ads on the dashboard. I don’t normally mind them - we live in an age of advertising at every turn - but the Wolfenstein II ad that has been showing up lately does bother me. It’s a pic of the antagonist licking the bloodied side of the hero’s face. The dash is likely to be seen by all members of the family and that one goes a little too far. Had some neighbor kids over yesterday and all they wanted to play was a LEGO game and that ad became a topic of conversation amongst the kids when the Xbox started up. Just what I need them telling their parents they saw on the Xbox at my house.

If we are going to be subjected to ads on the dash, they should at least make sure the ads for M rates games don’t show content that parents may not want kids or guests to see.

It's because you aren't playing on a child account... that ad won't show up on a child account.

Set up a child account for your kids, those ads are personalized to data points like your age, what other games you play, etc.

Well they have a way around it, not their fault when you don't use the tool they give you.

People are saying to make a child account, but I think parental controls also work. Just enable parental controls on your own account when you know kids will be using it and I'm pretty sure it will hide all that stuff on top of them not being able to play your M rated games installed on the console if you choose to block that.

Fake emails from Microsoft.. be careful!

Fake emails from Microsoft.. be careful!

I get these every time I contact Microsoft/Xbox support and it always match up with the service number.

Unless you're asked for an email and password when you click this survey link, this is very likely a legit email.

That's a completely legitimate email from Microsoft

Microsoft unfortunately uses a lot of random name sites for their emails/surveys. They’re never really from @xbox.com or @microsoft.com. I personally don’t like that they do this because it can make it harder to tell if you’re being phished on your first few emails from all their different departments

Not sure why people think this is "dope". You probably can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on that tiny thing.

Looks dope, dude. Clean as fuck.

Simple and tidy setup! Love it

what is this? a tv for ants?

Got a little bored last night but I think it was time well spent!

Murderer!

The side grips I sprayed with a rubber coating too!

Did you SEAL IT?!?

It made me think of the TV show Dexter. Pretty cool!

Is it possible to use a existing Xbox One external HDD for Windows PC?

Is it possible to use a existing Xbox One external HDD for Windows PC?

I just bought a 8TB external HDD for Xbox One, so I don't need a existing 2TB external HDD. I want to use 2TB HDD for my PC. Is it possible? How can I?

Plug it into your PC

Right click the drive on file explorer, click reformat

Make sure NTFS is selected for file system, and that the right size is selected on capacity. Note that this will be slightly lower than the advertised size (eg my 2 TB media drive comes up as 1.81 TB) because sizes are advertised in base 10, while the shown size is in base 2, but this is completely normal

Give it a name if you so desire (volume label), make sure quick format is selected then hit Format

Wait, you were being serious? Because it absolutely is that easy.

Haha, the reason I gave a full answer is because the others are terrible. Everyone seemed too focused on the can rather than the how.

Not on both at the same time. You would need to format.

CoD WW2 on Xbox One X scenes that were 60FPS are now stuttering 30FPS with tearing after latest patch

That is not a good news at all. This game already had soooooo many issues.

I tried it for two nights (about 4-5 hours each).

The campaign was the same as its always been. A shooting gallery.

The multiplayer was the same as its always been. A garbage-spawn campfest.

Battlefield has completely spoiled me, even little things like proper reload animations depending on the amount of bullets left in your rifle shows how much more DICE really cares about authenticity.

Meanwhile Sledgehammer gave the Germans Ppsh SMGs in the Normandy level. Seriously, what the fuck.

I will never understand how CoD sells as well as it does still. I guess there are just a ton of people that just want "CoD, and nothing else".

For real. I stopped playing after 4 hours of shitty, buggy, laggy gameplay. I have huge buyers remorse.

SHG continues to be a joke.

Any PC owners find themselves playing their Xbox more?

Any PC owners find themselves playing their Xbox more?

I find myself playing Xbox 90% of the time, even though I have a gaming PC. It makes me feel guilty for building a PC in the first place, but I’ve accepted my lifestyle 😂 Anyone else have this experience?

Yup... but I also work with PC's all day so to go home and sit back down at a PC doesn't really seem all that relaxing. I like hitting the couch, controller in hand and enjoying my games there.

I spent way too much for a PC that I barely ever use. I hate cheaters, the populations are lower than consoles on most games, community sucks, etc. Also, it's kinda hard to describe but I just don't he the same feel from gaming on PC either.

No, honestly. I have not turned on my Xbox in weeks. I've been playing a lot of OW and recently started a new playthrough of Dying Light with a friend.

Nope. Since I got my gaming PC my Xbox is collecting dust

PLAYERUNKNOWN on Twitter: states PUBG will run at 30 FPS on Xbox One

PLAYERUNKNOWN on Twitter: states PUBG will run at 30 FPS on Xbox One

FPSUnknown

Yesterday: PUBG runs at 60fps!!!! Today: PUBG runs at 30fps!!! Tomorrow: PUBG is a text based adventure where you decide your own actions!!!

30FPS on Xbox One X ._.

Yeah, wow. That’s a huge change in tone over 24 hours.

They need to put up a proper statement in my opinion. Are they going to be addressing this within weeks, but it’s just not ready for launch, or is 60fps for the X just some long term goal that may never happen?
