I expected the consoles to be down being that 2023 was the first time you could really actually buy one from the shops and COVID lockdown finally coming to a close but for Xbox to be down by 37% is really concerning, its down even more then Switch.

When Sony has no big first party game, the industry numbers as whole, go down,

sure they had Stellar blade, Rise of ronin, and Final fantasy, Helldivers 2, and soon to be Astro bot and Concord, but no Megaton. 5 smaller AA games vs 1 or two big AAA games still did them okay for 2024 though,

If you're talking about raw games sales, then no. Helldivers 2 is Sony's fastest selling game of all time (12m as of May).

Wasn't expecting much, but Halo is actually a good TV series. Pity they cancelled it...

Sometimes all I want is just a simple sci fi show with good special effects. I'm not expecting a 1:1 of the source material as so many great games and movies weren't carbon copies of the source material. I don't want to watch a show where if your mind wanders for 5 seconds you just wasted an opportunity to understand the show. I don't want a "this blonde girl that you thought was the true dungeon queen wasn't the dungeon queen because another blonde girl that looks exactly like her was the true dungeon queen". Sometimes all it takes is some boobs and gore to get 6 seasons of a show.

Thank goodness. Show was trash and canceling it at least opens an opportunity to do it again the right way, but I have a feeling that rather than taking responsibility, the execs that ruined this show will just assume people don’t want live-action Halo.

It was okay, but it seemed all the iconic moments went to other Spartans.

Let it die and do a game canon, anthological, animated Halo series with either Netflix or Prime Video.

Season 2 was a much better season than the first. I would of kept watching it but the fact they had chief go onto the ring and the main bad guy was the human girl it really started to lose me. Guilty spark seemed like a better bad guy than anything the show had shown yet and could have helped save it but the show couldn't get out of it's own way alot of the time.

Doug’s Nightmare Review | TheXboxHub

Review - Doug’s Nightmare is almost perfectly middle of the road. It isn’t the worst twin-stick shooter, but neither is it near the best.
