xbox one s vs xbox one x

Recommended Posts

thinking highly of getting an xbox seeing as ill be locked indoors for the forseeable future.

 

I had every xbox up until the 360 but sold my last 360 many moons ago

 

Whats the difference between the two news xboxs does anyone know?

 

I woudnt be a hardcore gamer, always liked playing GTA, Ghost Recon and Gears of War, Dont mind playing online but i wont lose any sleep over it if i dont. 

 

Also, i have a younglad, nearly 5, is he too young? im planning on selling it once this fecking coronavirus fucks off, so is there a game or two suitable for his age group?

 

Any advice would be great.

If your not keeping it just buy the cheapest one. 

 

Get the game pass and xbox live(you need that to play online). Game pass will give you loads of games for a monthly fee. It's better than buying all the games. Loads of good games on there.

I think there is an xbox one s that doesn't have a disc drive - the digital edition. That's probably the cheapest one possible at around £199 new with a game. You might be able to get it cheaper if you look around.

so let me get this right, you dont physically need to buy the games anymore in disc form?

 

im 38, and i sound like my dad, im totally confused....... 

Yes this is true. Games can be digitally downloaded after purchasing from the Microsoft store or from the gamepass app that @cloggypop referred to. You can also get EA Access for less than £20 per year and you can download lots of EA games including FIFA 19.

So out of curiosity, when you buy a game in the shops, what's in the case, a code or a disc? This wizardry has me totally confused......... 

 

And next in the ultimate debate, 

 

Xbox or PlayStation?

No need to buy anything apart from Gamepass though, especially if you haven't had a console for a while. It's incredible value. Loads of good stuff on there. 

 

The non digital only version of the S does have a very good blu ray drive in it which is handy if you are likely to use it for playing blu rays/dvds/cds.

Buying games through the online store tends to be a bit more expensive than buying a hard copy. Having the disc also means you can sell it/trade it once you’re finished. 

Not a bit far more expensive 

 

Buy a second hand one from somewhere like game or cex especially if your not planning it being a long term thing. They'll give you a 6 month warrentu and it'll cost you not much more than £100. I still have my original model one, works fine. 

 

Buy one with a disc drive far cheaper in the long run. 

 

You can't just put a game in and play you need to install the game to the hard drive first

I've picked up really cheap deals on the relevant games stores and it means you don't have to worry about disc out/in. Probably best to have the option of both but cheapest route is digital plus gamepass/ea access.

In shops it's normally disc.

 

There's no gamepass on PS4 as far as I am aware so for value, it's xbox every day and every hour.

Nier Automata is on Game Pass from April 2nd.

I got that on PS4 over a year ago, along with Astral Chain on Switch. I think they're made by the same people?

 

Haven't played either of them.

 

Assasins Creed Origins is good, isn't it? Thanks for that!

Yes

Big change in the series from the last two games. Interesting changes between the two aswell. In Origins the map areas tell you how tough each region is by levels where as Odyssey the whole map just levels with you. 

 

 

Loved both of them. 

 

The season passes are on offer for £15 each at the moment. Not played the Origins add on yet but the Odyssey one was well worth the extra money

    • My favourite one, some of the games, might be highlights were on in the afternoon then I'd just go straight down to the field at the bottom of the road and play footy for ages.
    • I wonder what all the horrible little gobshites attacking our players will say now that Chelsea have followed.      
    • Tuesday May 26:   Ok so you know I said yesterday that I’m over all the Istanbul stuff and it does nothing for me these days? Turns out I was wrong. LFCTV had Carra and Xabi doing a watch along of the game together so I thought “I’ll give it a little watch for 5 minutes”. 45 minutes later I’m sat there thinking “that was fucking boss”.    The thing that I didn’t really appreciate at the time but it stands out massively now is just how much better than Milan side was than ours. I mean I knew they were better, but not to the extent that I see it now. Not only did I go into that game thinking we could win it, but at half time at 3-0 down I was STILL telling people it wasn’t over and if we got an early goal etc   Now fair enough, I was shitfaced and I’m sure without the benefit of alcohol I wouldn’t have been so full of bravado, but it’s only really now when I look back that I realise we shouldn’t have had any chance. They were better than us in virtually every position and some of the all time greats of the modern era in their side. I didn’t see it that way back then because I was in the moment and had a vastly inflated opinion of just how good some of our lads were.    Classic example being Baros. He was my boy, I loved him and at that time I wouldn’t have swapped him for Shevchenko or Crespo. I look back now and just have to laugh. Gerrard is probably the only player we had that would have got into Milan’s starting eleven. Xabi was great but he was only 22 back then don’t forget. Carra and Sami were top players but Milan had Stam and Nesta.   I thought Carra summed it up perfectly when he said that apart from that six minute spell Milan played brilliantly all night and we were barely able to lay a glove on them. Those six minutes though. Fucking hell.   Meanwhile, Mbappe is praising us again. I don’t know if the financial side of it could ever be sorted (especially now), but this lad would come and play for us in a heartbeat I reckon. I think he’s part of the reason I’m so underwhelmed by Werner you know. That and the fact that any time I’ve watched Werner he’s looked like he couldn’t trap a bag of cement.   We’re being linked with my boy Adama Traore today too. Another player I’d take over Werner all day (which I'm fully aware that in time might make me look like a massive fool). He’s developed hugely over the last 12 months but is still really raw. Imagine what he could be though after Klopp worked his magic on him.   I get that there are a lot of you reading this who aren’t sold on Traore, but look at it this way. Even his critics would surely agree that there are days when Traore is completely unplayable, right? Shit, we’ve seen it against us, Robbo even spoke about it recently. Well Klopp would make those days much more frequent, like he's done with Salah and Mané. So what’s not to love about that? If we signed Adama, I wouldn't just be posting the dancing Van Damme gifs, I'd be acting them out.
      Wednesday May 27:   Liverpool and Cheltenham were among the worst hit areas when Covid descended upon us in March. Can’t think why that would be, can you? The government isn’t buying it, of course. “There are many factors that could influence the number of cases in a particular area, including population density, age, general health, and the position of an area on the pandemic curve.”   Yeah, I’m sure allowing 250k race goers to congregate together in a confined space and then go off to spread it into all the local bars, coffee shops and restaurants had nothing to do with it. Or allowing 3,000 fans from Madrid to fly in to attend a footy match, even though in their own country that was no longer allowed because of the escalating rate of infection.   I’m 99% sure I caught it at that Madrid game. I know without any question that I passed it onto to my wife and daughter but thankfully we’re all ok (although my wife still isn’t fully recovered and has had various other issues as a result of it), but for all I know though I’ve passed it on to someone else who may have died, or who spread it to someone else who did. There’s no way of knowing, so I try not to think about it too much but it is in the back of my mind.   I tell myself I probably didn’t because I work from home and don’t often come into contact with others, but maybe I’ve been in a shop and touched something and passed it on that way? I didn’t show symptoms until five days afterwards so who knows what may have happened in those five days. Thankfully I’d already decided the week previously that we were all staying away from my parents, or I would have passed it on to them too.   How many others like me got it that night and then spread it around? People died as a result of that game being played and because of the decision not to ban the away fans. There have been so many bad decisions taken by those in authority that this isn't even the worst of them, but no-one will ever be held accountable for any of it. They never are.
      Onto lighter things now, and Newcastle reportedly want Shaqiri. He’s better than that, although if he did go there he’d be a massive cult hero and they’d worship him because he’d be their best player. Maybe that would appeal to him, rather than being a little fish in a big pond? Wait, I’ve just realised something. I haven’t seen him in any of the training videos. Is he still injured?    *sends message to journo mate*    Yes, he is. This has to be the longest lay off with a calf injury since Pat Van Den Hauwe back in the day. Has Shaq been messing around with the Bennetts too?   Random rumour of the day. We’re in for PSG right back Thomas Meunier. Not having that at all. We’ve got the best right back in the world and behind him we’ve got a kid who looks like he’s got everything it takes to be a great fill in any time Trent needs a rest.  If you ignore his age and the fact he’s a kid that’s come through the Academy, and just judge Neco Williams on the performances he’s put in when he’s played in the first team, I reckon he’s not been spoken about anywhere near enough.   He’s been man of the match in at least half of those appearances, and you can make a case for it in all but one of the others too. Neco is going to be a top player, so no, we don’t need an expensive, highly paid established international to act as cover for Trent.    This is uncannily like a situation I found myself in as Portsmouth boss on Footy manager last week. I’ve got a brilliant young Danish right back (you won’t know him, he’s a regen as I’m into my 12th season now) and I had Brazil’s first choice right back rotating with him. It was a perfect set up, except I had a home grown kid coming through who was class so I reluctantly sold the Brazilian to clear a path for him.   These are the tough decisions us top managers need to make, and I’m sure Klopp is cut from the same cloth as me so Neco’s path will be clear and we won’t be signing Meunier or anyone else for that matter.   Now onto your 'weekly Chico'. Today it's not Stevie Nicol talking bollocks, it's someone talking bollocks about Stevie Nicol. Tony Evans says Nicol was better than Maldini. Fucking hell is it any wonder we get so much shit from other fans?   Maldini is widely regarded as the greatest left back of all time. Stevie Nicol was brilliant and massively under-rated by many, but just stop it, please. Now if he'd said that Andy Robbo was better than Maldini, I think that's something we could all get on board with.     This is just a teaser, click to view the full article   Please note that the Week that Was is only available to website subscribers.
