@  d2_s : (02 October 2017 - 04:10 PM) Somy is releasing an updated PSVR headset with improved processing unit and HDR pass-through. Unfortunately, no HDR pass-through solution for early adopters and the new processing box is no compatible with the original PSVR unit. A dick move if you ask me. I'd use my PSVR alot more if it wasn for this.

@  Goldenheart : (21 October 2017 - 01:36 PM) sorry for the double post earlier. Didn't realize it.
@  d2_s : (28 October 2017 - 06:04 AM) How’s everyone? What are you playing? I have been enjoying Piranha Bytes latest creation Elex. A little rough around the edges, but really enjoyable.
@  ermac666 : (28 October 2017 - 09:03 PM) This month has been packed with games. Hard time deciding to allocate my time playing GT sports, assassins creed origins (love the egypt setting), evil within 2 and the fast paced wolfenstein 2.
@  colonel_j2020 : (31 October 2017 - 04:32 PM) I have been playing Destiny 2 on PC.  It is my first taste of Destiny.  I am enjoying it so far but I haven't hit that grind stage yet or run out of content.
@  TonyDP : (01 November 2017 - 07:19 PM) Hi all. Got all three of my guardians on Destiny 2 to Power Level 305 so I think I'm going to put that down for a while. Beyond that, been playing a lot of PSVR: Megaton Rainfall, Raw Data; Doom VFR and Skyrim VR are right around the corner and looking really good.
@  d2_s : (03 November 2017 - 03:42 AM) Must say that Skyrim VR looks awesome.  It has come a long way and i’ll have to pick iy up.
@  TonyDP : (05 November 2017 - 08:31 PM) Yeah the recent Skyrim VR videos have me stoked. Obviously the resolution inside the headset will be lower but the immersion should more than make up for it. Videos to Doom VFR looked sick as well.
@  kyle_5_16 : (07 November 2017 - 03:06 PM) Alright, who got the Xbox One X?
@  TonyDP : (07 November 2017 - 10:30 PM) As an Xbox One S owner, right now I see no compelling reason to get an Xbox One X. I don't have a 4K TV and I don't have any desire to replay a bunch of games I've already beaten just for the sake of some prettier graphics. If MS ever releases a VR headset or does something innovative beyond just pushing more pixels in existing games then I'll take a look. If my "S" kicks the bucket, I'll take a look. But right now I really don't need one.
@  TonyDP : (08 November 2017 - 02:56 PM) Annnnnnnnnd ... I bought one. Dear God, I wish I had some self control.
@  ermac666 : (10 November 2017 - 08:14 PM) I won't be getting one anytime soon. It's exclusives are also on PCs and the multiplats from what I have seen from comparisons are not that much better than on the pro in terms of frame rate aside from holding a higher resolutions.
@  ermac666 : (10 November 2017 - 08:23 PM) I will get one once the games fully take advantage of it ,a nd the gulf between it and the pro becomes bigger. Right now, I don't see any reason to get the One X for me.
@  TonyDP : (11 November 2017 - 03:59 PM) I don't do PC gaming so it's easier for me to justify having the best MS and Sony consoles I can get. FWIW, even with a 1080p TV I can still easily see improvements in games. Tomb Raider now has 60fps all the time; Forza Horizon 3 has nice reflections in the cars that didn't show up on my Xbox One S, etc. Once I get a 4K TV I'm sure the visual upgrades will be even more pronounced.
@  kyle_5_16 : (13 November 2017 - 12:28 AM) lol @TonyDP your first two responses are hilarious read back to back. Didn't take you long at all to come around to it
@  TonyDP : (13 November 2017 - 05:09 PM) Like I said, I have no willpower. Still, the X1X is nice; I was playing some Hitman on it yesterday and the graphical effects were in a completely new league.
@  d2_s : (14 November 2017 - 04:47 AM) I have no regrets getting the X, it’s a fantastic system. Light on exclusives for sure, but a nice replacement for the S and was pleasantly surprised to see some 360 games getting a Faux-K makeover. Fallout 3 and Mirrors Edge look like new games running on the S.
@  d2_s : (14 November 2017 - 04:48 AM) Running on the X I meant :)
@  TonyDP : (14 November 2017 - 05:08 PM) Fallout 3 looks and runs really nicely on the X1X

I have gotten more selective in buying consoles. I don't own everything that's out like in the previous generations. I don't own any XBOX One consoles or nintendo consoles this gen. I am all sony this gen.
I am taking a wait-and-see approach for the Xbox One X. If the multiplats are significantly better, I would make the jump as most of my games are multiplats, so I would want the best console versions to play till this gen is over. The XBOX exclusives don't interest me except for the forza and forza horizon series. I am not too keen on high end PCs.

Microsoft's complete lack of any recognition of VR when it comes to the Xbox One X was really disappointing to me. Other than Forza their exclusives have really diminished in quality over the years and hold little interest (hated where the Halo story went and never cared much for Gear). If they'd made some sort of a VR announcement then I would have pre-ordered but as I don't have a 4K TV yet there is little incentive to get the new console.

Agree with pretty much everything you said Tony regarding MS exclusives. Halo took a dive when 343 took over IMO and the Gears formula has really worn thin for me. Project Cars 2 and GT Sport have come along in strides and look far more exciting to me than Forza 7, which looks like just more of the same. The one thing I will give MS is that their exclusives are generally very polished and I am looking forward to all the 4K + HDR updates existing games will be getting.

HDR+4K/Psuedo-4K are the main reason I'm getting the X and I'm really looking forward to seeing titles like Forza Horizon 3 running in native 4k @ 60hz on a console.

Halo 5 multiplayer is definitely one if not the best multiplayer I've ever played on a console...  the continual updates and free add on content really makes it shine.  

Gears however... wow what a stinker the last one was.   Absolutely zero creativity on the level design and it was boring and not much of a looker.
