You are one of my fav posters on this forum, I actually love your dedication! Seriously though, I'm definitely gonna pick up an Xbox down the line. Do you guys reckon some of the older Halo games are playable today or have they aged badly?Imagine still thinking this. It’s just weird at this point
Analysis: 2,000 digital-only games will disappear when PlayStation closes its stores.
Many titles will be lost for good and others will become Xbox exclusives, VGC analysis shows.
https://www.videogameschronicle.com...disappear-when-playstation-closes-its-stores/The Xbox brand has been extolling the virtues of backwards compatibility for some time now, and the upcoming store closures will also have something of a positive impact on how the Xbox library is perceived. As soon as the store closes, a number of games that were previously multi-format will automatically become Xbox console exclusives.
The likes of Beyond Good & Evil HD, Rayman 3 HD, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD, SoulCalibur II HD Online, Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and both Bionic Commando games will soon only be available to purchase on Microsoft‘s consoles.
The biggest third-party company affected by this by far will be Sega, who went through a spell releasing HD versions of a number of its past games on both Xbox Live Arcade and PSN. Almost all of these will become Xbox exclusives overnight.
HD versions of Sega titles like Daytona USA, Fighting Vipers, Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS Into Dreams, both Sonic Adventure games, Sonic the Fighters, Sonic CD, Virtua Fighter 2, Sonic CD and Space Channel 5 Part 2 will all soon only be available to buy on Xbox consoles (and PC).
Great post. They have to come in here making out like we’re arsed about games with goldIs it so boring in PlayStation thread that this one has to be polluted with rubbish? I mean there is plenty of excitement in PS thread with so many Sony devs leaving, Sony closing so many digital stores, making lots of games unattainable unless through piracy and losing many devs a lot of money in the process. Plenty of excitement there!
Don’t forget that they are giving away their own game to gamepass and charging £60 to their own customers for it. People on the losing team just seem to be angry people.Is it so boring in PlayStation thread that this one has to be polluted with rubbish?
