CRank: 5Score: 14510

But GamePass is not MS' consolation effort; it was always the endgame! MS is all about subscription-based revenue-streams now! They have turned almost all of their businesses into software-as-a-service; only Windows remains. Stay tuned for that one in the next 5 years.

You're mistaken. The announced deluxe version is to take the place of a standard version at retail.

I've seen rumblings that this game on PS5 will require an internet connection to complete installation from the disc; possibly also to play. Ubisoft will not get my money if this is the case!

Just a reminder: MS' marketed "backwards-compatibility& quot; is not true backwards-compatibility, save for the Xbox One generation. You must download an emulator-wrapped recompiled version of each OG and 360 game. When that authentication/download server is removed, the older games will no longer "work". The discs are only used for authentication. Moreover, only ~65 OG and ~650 360 (mostly LIVE Arcade) games are supported. The program is nowhere near as comprehensive ...

Not to be a broken record in this comments section, but you are absolutely wrong. Go visit doesitplay.org and learn that 85%+ single-player games on Sony and Nintendo platforms are very much playable off their discs. They may have some minor bugs or may have some imperfections in their performance, but are generally fine to play to completion.

There are two ways to "win" in this world: by outperforming or by undermining. One is respectable; the other is pathetic.

No condescension intended.

I've experienced my share of bugs requiring save-scumming as well, but "Bad to say the least (sic)" is too strong a statement. Also, discussions of performance generally revolve around framerate, frametime, and other metrics of execution efficiency.

I have to disagree. Save for some slowdown in Act 3, BG3 performs just fine on PS5.

I never understood the cylinder prototype. Unless you rename the company Xcylinder, it just doesn't make any sense:

[You walk into your friend's family room and see it]
You: Whoa---what is thaaat?
Friend: It's the new X---box...
You: Huh?!?! Strange messaging from the team at X---box

You do realize that Sony would pull its games from any storefront purchased by MS, right? Pretty simple countermeasure...

Such an outstanding baseball series! Looking forward to importing a physical copy.

This kind of drip-fed content is a great way to get me not to buy the game until years later (generally when it's discounted and unlikely to make a positive financial impact on their bottom line). I reward physical releases of complete games.

This is not news; it's sensationalist crap.

Yes, but years later it was re-released in one of those bargain hybrid 360/One cases.

I played and finished it on Xbox One.

Hope there's a physical disc release. Missed opportunity to promote PSVR2 if they aren't including the VR mode.
