I want to play Alan Wake but I’m not buying another digital only game this year. I still haven’t bought Baldurs Gate 3 but if do buy a digital only game that will be the one but I’m still holding out as I have tons of games to play and don’t like buying digital only. I hate this practice and don’t want to support it. I understand small indie games sometimes being digital only but those are rare too. But these bigger games can easily get someone to print them 100k or more copies and they will all sell.

yh im holding off on Alan wake too.

the digital only is stupid as hell. there is no way that the physical media costs them so much.

Guess the majority of Xbox players will be stuck with 30fps then.

darthv722h ago

Having a perf mode is certainly a nice option, but I believe the devs said its supposed to be a 30fps game. And given that there are plenty of games on S without a perf mode... it doesnt seem to phase anyone who plays them.

TQQ1h ago

I bet the resolution and settings are higher on performance PS5 than 30 FPS Series S.

You're really reaching trying to pass this off as a good thing.

Jin_Sakai22m ago

The majority of Xbox gamers playing the inferior version at half the frame rate isn’t a good thing. Stop the damage control.

1Victor2h ago

It would be foolish to expect anything less 🤦🏿

shadowT5h ago

trade in your Xbox Series S for a Xbox Series X - all problems solved

purple1013h ago

Trade it in for a ps5 even more problems solved

Einhander19723h ago

You'll also probably pay less and get a free game.

Ya know, except for the biggest game this holiday Spider-Man and the biggest release in the first quarter of 24 with Final Fantasy Rebirth. And a ton of other exclusives like Helldivers and Granblue Fantasy: Relink and many others...

“They have no games tho.“

Spider-Man 2 one of the biggest games this generation will be releasing later this month and will run at 60fps with Ray Tracing enabled. Can’t say the same for Starfield.

"They have no games tho"

Philly is correct. Xbox gots no games. Definitely not worth owning an Xbox for the most part. The odd game here and there.

Vits5h ago

I assume that is pretty fine for the majority of the users. Just hope that the game itself can keep a stead 30fps or 60fps in the case of the other consoles. Remedy is not particularly known for its optimization, the Remaster of the original title was known to drop into the 50s on the PS5/Series X for example.

eagle213h ago(Edited 3h ago)

I was watching Digital Foundry yesterday discussing the performance of Phantom Liberty across current gen consoles and Series S had sizable frame dips and screen tearing. So this is Microsoft's best selling model? I hope games like Grand Theft Auto 6 don't get gimped because of Series S. PS5 performance by the way was awesome. Series X was comparable to PS5...but they seemed to prefer PS5 version overall. Loading was faster on PS5 by DOUBLE. 8 seconds (PS5) verses 15.5 seconds (Series X).....

That Series S needs to go....2024 will reveal its limitations as developers stop support for last gen consoles and Series S will fail to keep up with Series X while Sony will unleash the beast in PS5.

TQQ3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

I bet the Series S is why you see so many people complain that there is no big difference between last gen and this gen.

Series S is just dragging the generation down and damaging over all perception of the generation.

Except for first party games on a certain console and some third party console exclusives...

Alan Wake 2 Music Has Been Taken to the "Next Level," Expect "Cool" Stuff Done With It, Says Remedy

Alan Wake 2 has some "cool" stuff done with its music and audio according to the developers, and it's being taken to the "next level."

I’m all for this, but I really need a physical copy before I indulge in this. I won’t be playing anytime soon if I can’t own this physically.

isarai6h ago

Same, this game looks great, but it's for that very reason I want it physically. So I'm waiting to see what happens after launch
