It was okay, nothing special.

Had a quick go on Demon's Tilt - Addictive pinball game that made me feel like I was slowly going blind. The seizure warning at the start is no joke.

Anyone recommend a good battery for the elite? Been using official one for a couple of years but it's playing up and despite saying fully charged beer quickly tells me it's empty

Weird question but ... is anyone else getting a verification code message when trying to start FIFA20?

My son is getting this ( along with a notice saying that the code was sent to a completely random email address ) but only on this one EA game which makes me think it is a FIFA issue rather than a hacking issue.

Anyone got any ideas?

Not exactly what you asked but I use Eneloops and AmazonBasics AA rechargeables. Paired with a good charger the same 8-12 batteries are used across multiple pads and a few other devices and are still as good as new (and they've been in use since the tail-end of the 360 generation when I got fed up with the official Play and Charge kits failing, be it the battery packs or the chargers).

This is maybe a stupid question but guessing I can't play and charge with those?

No you can't.

But my setup for example is I have multiple pairs of batteries, pre-charged (they hold their charge). So once one set runs out, swap in a new set, charge up the drained set so they're ready and so on.

And the next gen Xbox is called.....

Series X.... mmmm until the Holiday 2020 date popped up I thought it was just a One X repackage/rebox

Hmm. That has an air of 'Wii U' to it which is not good.

Edit: Actually, I'd just read the eurogamer story when I posted that and they called it "Xbox One Series X" but having now seen the video it's just "Xbox Series X" so it's not quite Wii U levels of similarity (though the console and controller design don't help as they're very similar to Xbox One X).

I'll probably upgrade as mine tends to **** the bed when the CPU is under strain.

Series X is a terrible name, the public will get confused with the Xbox series X and the xbox one X - like the WiiU situation (especially if they One X as basic model and the series X is the "pro" version)

From what I’ve heard there will be two new models over the One X..... it’s gonna get complicated. They should have gone the Sony route with ... PS2, PS3 etc, OK the pro was a little off the path but hopefully that’s as far as they go

I hope we get custom installs as standard as you may not want to install the MP mode. It was suppose to be standard thing for ps4 and X1 but most companies didn't bother

Also proper ready to play installs, again it was never well used

MS naming follows a function and Xbox is now a family brand. So I imagine series will relate to consoles and then we will have a cloud family range of products. That either sit inside series or as a separate grouping alongside.

Have they said any more about the naming structure moving forward. Didn’t that say it would become clear or reflect the situation or something.

I’m just wondering if maybe, as more is revealed, they will say that the Xbox one x actually fits in at the lower tier of the series x and then they will have a mid and high tier model as well

I do think that maybe come the next reveal, it will be series 1 “insert suitable model name”

What with xcloud and game pass they have a real unique way of releasing games moving forward. All games will work on all series x consoles, but in different ways. So the new halo or the new fable etc would all be realistically playable on the current x maybe using power of xcloud

mentioned before but technically I will not have to buy a single game when I pick up whatever it is that’s in that big black box (a design I like, the original big Black box and duke controller where what got me into console gaming after years of commodore and pc)

what with game pass and again possibly xcloud, amazon will drop it off, I plug it in, it spemds time updating and then boom, my entire library is there to play. I can download what ever I want, maybe even stream it as it downloads.

This was the “series” makes more sense to me.

the xbox does this thing where it shows close achievements and who is recent online and the screen dims by standard but just did a search on the store and there is app called screen saver gallery, free app, never tried it but might be what you are looking for

Thanks. Will take a gander.
Yeah, that achievement thing still keeps enough on screen that there is some retention
