Ninja and the others did quite well out of it. MS wasted so much money on mixer

Sadly MS will be adding "spyware" to the xbox now with facebook gaming hopefully its not embedded to the OS for the next update edit: they won't

It's funny everyone raging about Microsoft's Facebook partnership but everyone was fine with the Playstation 4 share button uploading to Facebook.

What’s the best bet for a rechargeable solution for One controllers? Just get some brand name rechargeable AAs or are any of those special packs like the Venom worthwhile? The Venom ones seem to either get terrible or great reviews so I’m not sure if they’re utter gash or not. But at £9.99 for a pair seem cheap.

We are on to our 2nd Venom charging dock in 3 years - we only replaced the first one as my son put the controller back in the dock two hard and broke one of the pins

They have been fine for us

I use a third party play and charge. Lasts ages.
I found the usb cable didn't hear of up to much but swapped for a magnetic usb replacement and works well

When games go to new consoles they always go up in price at the start by £10 or $10. Then you get the apologists

Only mention this as reading 2k's BS excuse for their casino gambling game (with a bit of basketball going up in price)

I have a duracell AAs on rotation, they do last a surprisingly long time.

Just get some Ikea rechargeable. They are supposed to be made in the same factory as the Panasonic Eneloops. Last for ages on a charge too

If you have gamepass then try Cross Code, its a great 16bit style era zelda/Mana type game

Yeah, I totally agree. Brilliant, addictive game that lives up to the hype. Already put over six hours into this & feels like I’ve just scratched the surface.

Does anyone know when Grounded is actually released ? It has been sitting on my son's XBox for weeks ( as it was an early preload presumably for the Beta program people or whatever it's called )
