Here are your Xbox Games with Gold for January

I'm happy enough with this month. Never played Zombi, but always liked the look of it. I enjoyed the first Van Helsing game (I wish they'd put 2 on sale though, as I need to play that before 3). Despite owning it on disc, I never got round to playing Underworld. Not particularly interested in Army of Two, but then even if I was, I'd probably still never play it what with my backlog and everything. So yeah, good month for me.

Xbox One Kinect adaptor officially dead now, too

I quite liked Kinect for on/off, app and channel switching etc. Skype was great as well. The only problem I had with it was that if Mrs Hermit felt that I was neglecting or ignoring her for too long then she'd pause whatever game I was playing and/or turn off the console.

@Mhoey So don't play the story. Spend a couple of hours creating your perfect Ryder so you're all ready to jump straight in on launch day and spend the rest of the trial in multiplayer getting used to any new skills that they might of introduced that you might want to use in the full game.

Can't hurt to have a look at any rate.

robthehermit

@graemeallarton As has been pointed out many times already, that's just for the R/C Nomad. If you want the game as well, that's another 75 Euro, so a total of 263ish. Still a bit cheaper than Game, but not by enough to cause all this outrage.

@blarty There was a collectors edition of ReCore that didn't include the game either. Now that a lot console players purchase their games digitally, the inclusion of a physical game disk with the collectors edition tat isn't always required.

robthehermit

We're only paying an extra 30 over the US. The $200 dollar version doesn't include the game, that's an extra $60.

$260 = 210 (approx.) + 20% VAT = 252.

So while 280 is stupidly expensive, it's not quite as eye gouging as the EG sensationalist headlines would have you believe.

The headline needs to drop the word "includes".

@MaHi There were 7 or 8 years between the 360/PS3 and the Xbone/PS4. A bit too long really, which has skewed peoples perception of how long these things should last. I don't think 5 years for a closed system is unreasonable though.

@moosecake They're not saying no more consoles, they're saying no more generations. They're classing the change in OS as a generation. So by using the same OS going forward to ensure compatibility between consoles, they can release a new console whenever the current hardware starts struggling, so probably every 3 to 4 years. At least that's how I understand it.

They've already said that they'll be adding new features with updates, pleyer interaction in some form will happen etc. Why don't they just cover all this with a blanket statement of "The game isn't finished yet and you've all paid full price for an early access version of the game. It's not our fault though, Sony were pushing for release and we were running out of money so needed to get something on the shelves."
