Shame Xenia has no online play or Xlink support. Unless it does and it's updated since I last checked :olol:

Castle Crashers is a god damn masterpiece and should be available for all of humanity to purchase for the rest of time.

All the others can disappear.

Hey I will be buried with a digital code for Peggle 2 on the Xbox 360.

But seriously I did just pick up Daytona USA for safe keeping, not sure if it's a good port or not.



I got a Series S over Christmas and applauded Microsoft for still giving access to all my digital Xbox 360 purchases. Jet Set Radio is nice to have too.

You should watch the Digital Foundry video on Daytona. From memory they love that version.

I've been looking at preorder games pages and have reached the conclusion that the Xbox Series X has had more special edition coloured controls since its launch than games worth playing.

It's not a problem Sony or Nintendo have had... Where are all these games studios Microsoft has been buying for 20 years?

Looking at the Xbox, there's only 1 single game I want to play. Sony has 4 on PS5 and Nintendo on 6-7 year old technology has 3 games coming soon.

I'm not buying all the consoles this time, so how did Microsoft go from being the best for 2 console generations in a row, to the worst by a long way?
What happened?

Sure the online services and content delivery systems are a step above, but if you have no new content to deliver on them....
