    Major, Xbox One needs Socom.

    • Massamo

      thats a sony published title so i say never going to be

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      LOL wtf

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      WTF?! Xbox 1 needs Warframe! (ha!)

    • Does Not Equal

      You mean the Sony-owned IP?

      • BigBernard

        That’s fascinating.

        • Does Not Equal

          No.

          • BigBernard

            That’s lovely.

          • Does Not Equal

            No.

    • usrev

      well, it’s not getting it, and it seems it isn’t getting H-hour world’s elite either.

    • AC130

      One main reason MS will likely not see my money again after 360. PS4 exclusives are a lot better then MS Xbox One rubbish.

  • Senses Failed

    Two outta three ain’t bad huh.
    I agree, the original xbox was a breath of fresh air, and i adore my 360 to this day. But the xbox one.. Well, needs work

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      haha!

    • ElektroDragon

      Love it!

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      ouch

  • Charles

    Who is everyone’s favorite K.I. Fighter so far? Mine is Glacius.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      the one i don’t have to play.

      • ElektroDragon

        Normally love your posts, but that’s a little unfair. My favorite is Sabrewulf.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          sorry but i like the old k.i. from the arcades. that is the memories i have with that game and i like to keep them that way.

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      Zombie Sabrewulf!

  • Massamo

    when is xbox one getting usb hard drive support i have run out of space

    • Melting Granite

      Spring 2015. You will pay a one-time activation fee on your connected Xbox One to enable use of the USB slot as storage. The fee is $99 USD, which enables you to activate one USB drive up to 2GB in size as additional storage space.

      Note that you will need to use officially branded Microsoft Xbox One USB drives, which will be available at retailers for $40 for a 2GB stick, or you can save money by purchasing a 5-pack of sticks for $199.

      After you activate one drive at $99 USD, you can activate as many additional drives as you wish, for a reduced activation fee of only $49 USD each.

      Note that the activation code for each USB resides on the USB stick, so if you erase all data from the USB stick, you will have to repurchase activation. Microsoft will not retain any activation data for individual USB sticks, so retrieval of activation data is not possible.

      Of course, this all comes from my imagination, but as badly as MS has rolled out the XBox One and introduced its draconian policies, it wouldn’t surprise me if they got this greedy.

      • Massamo

        what are you on about greedy about what?

      • IN_YO_FACE_86

        sign me up.

      • usrev

        you forgot xbox live gold membership required to use external memory, if your gold lapses you can’t access your saves.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      microsoft is a tv company now and they don’t understand this word, space.

      • ElektroDragon

        320GB 360 drive: out of room.
        32GB USB Drive 1: out of room
        32GB USB Drive 2: out of room
        So long Microsoft purchases!

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          it’s funny because i used to be CRAZY about not deleting anything and now i am so quick to delete something on my xbox after i am done. i almost have to watch myself because i might delete a game save. my 250 gb xbox trained me well.

          • evilfangs .

            I use to install all my games on 360 and I had my 60GB 360 for like 6 / 7 years, so I was always deleting games and map packs lol.

          • Moises Munoz

            Same here man.

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      No firm date yet – but I looked at the how things are progressing and things are looking good. The plan is for it work like you expect it to work.

      • evilfangs .

        “The plan is for it to work like you expect it to work”

        If only that sentence came up when Microsoft designed the Xbox one chat adapter.

        • ElektroDragon

          I was thinking Kinect 2, myself.

          • Some guy

            I was thinking about the xbone itself.

      • Guest

        Sounds good…

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        Thanks Major Nelson! Any news on more Free to Play games on Xbox One? Love some Project Spark by the way!

      • Bewafa

        Wait! What do you mean by “as you expect it to work”? I hope it does not mean 32gb external USB max support.

      • ryder4life22187

        please define the plan is for it work like you expect it to work. On the 360 we got 16gb then an update put it at 32gb and somehow you thought that was more than we would ever need.

      • Some guy

        So… how many more years do you think it’ll take? It’s been years since we first asked for that and all we got was 32gb external drives.
        And we still can’t use our xbox wallet on the website.

      • AC130

        Strangely I think most of us are now thinking of the current problem with the 360 and how those 32gb USB support did not do anything to alleviate those issues all those years ago. And now everyone has full HDD, I am hoping it will be unlimited on the Xbox One.

    • Bewafa

      I would like to know that as wel. This is ridiculous! Release a 500gb HDD and expect people to not fill it up in the next 7 years and make it irreplacable ! What a bunch of morons! If it wasn’t for that xbox one controller and thumbstick layout, I would have jumped the gun a while ago!

    • Professor Oak

      If you want to void the warrenty, you can pop open the xbox one and change the hard drive for a larger one, it is just an off the shelf unit.

      • Massamo

        i have already had one replaced under warrenty so yer not going to do that

  • evilfangs .

    Now I know why that movie “Iron Sky” is free, it’s because no one is going to watch it when you can’t understand what they’re saying unless you understand German because the hardcoded subtitles for the movie get cut off and thus you can’t read them and know what the hell is going on apart from the English dialog.

    “The plan is for it to work like you expect it to work”
    Another one bites the dust.

  • evilfangs .

    After waiting since the 24/12/13 I finally got the update for Max and today finally got my two glitched achievements. That makes 5 100% games I’ve completed now :)

    Just need to install Ryse again and see if my glitched collectible achievement on that game has been fixed yet or I’ll be missing that 15g forever.

    • ryder4life22187

      what do you want a medal for completing games to 100%. Who really cares about that anymore.

      • Gazza!!!

        Plenty of people care.

      • Some guy

        I’d say yes, finishing Ryse without going insane should give him a medal.

    • Gazza!!!

      Its been fixed sort of. If its the chronicles from the first mission you just need to run through the first mission again and recollect them.

  • Sledg

    First of all, Meat Loaf is great! He does a ton of charity work and he did coach baseball/softball back when his kids were younger. Nothing wrong with that.
    To the people asking about additional hard drive space… It’s already been mentioned that we’ll get to use any HD we buy and there is no limit. I’m not sure why people won’t accept that. I’ll also be willing to bet that it comes out this year, earlier than later.

    • digitallife

      I liked Meat Loaf and still do but the guy was a massive belligerent angry fool for a very very long time..those who haven’t forgotten that never will. I still like his music and his charity work tho.

  • Moises Munoz

    Hey Major, nice show, what are the games for GwG for next month?

    • Gazza!!!

      The only one confirmed is Hitman Absolution. Que the ps parade of they already did this on ps+ etc etc…

      • Professor Oak

        Source?

        • Gazza!!!

          The person who has revealed all the GwG to date, an insider apparently.

          • Professor Oak

            Do you have a website or any form of proof i can visually see?

          • Gazza!!!

            Just search online GwG Hitman. Its all over the web plus Raj Patel Xbox community manager tweeted confirmation before deleting the tweet.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        If that’s true that sux since during the holidays I just bought that game.

        • Moises Munoz

          I also bought the game las Holidays ahahaha.

          • Lem0nadeee

            Same :(

    • IN_YO_FACE_86

      I never understood why would they keep it a big secret until the day before the next set of games.

      • Moises Munoz

        I also never understood this policy of them. it’s probably so people have less time of hating. XD

        • IN_YO_FACE_86

          Yep that makes sense.lol

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Simple…lets say you are selling a tv on craigslist and you have a plan that if it don’t sell for the original price you put it up for after a week you are going to lower it $100. Are you going to say that in your posting? HELL NO or everyone would wait till you lowered the price. Basic marketing 101 if you ask me.

        Lets take that one step further. Lets say you decided before you listed that TV that if it didn’t sell by the end of the month you would advertise it for free. Again are you going to post that in your listing?

        Sometimes I wonder if anyone thinks of what it would be like to put the shoe on your own foot before pointing your fingers.

  • José Netto

    I’d like to see what will happen if Hitman: Absolution is, indeed, 1st GwG as, awkwardly, it’s one of the very few games not available here in Portugal mrktplace… hope this is made available or get a worthy replacement as I’d like to get this one :)

    • Gazza!!!

      As with other territories you will get another free game, probably Halo Wars.

      • José Netto

        hmmm their policy hasn’t been that much rubish in that point… when some didn’t have Dead Island others got Metro 1033… I hope it’s in the same type of game… wouldn’t mind getting some Splintercell game :)

        Still have to say I believe more on the Saints Row 2 rumour, though…

    • Some guy

      If you’re lucky the’ll give you Hitman blood money instead of that cheap hitman knockoff. But it’s probably going to be something else, maybe Bioshock since MS love that game.

      • José Netto

        Yes, that would also be nice, indeed :)

        Anyway, not much more time to have it figured out… anxiously waiting for it and always waiting for the worst :) still believing more in SR2

  • digitallife

    I’d love to see Forza or Black Flag in the shop for $30. I have Black Flag for the 360 but would totally buy it again at $30. Make some of the games cheaper they’ve been out a while and have lost their positions on the store charts to newer games, we’ll support them.

  • Some guy

    Great day stage, good night stage that last forever.
    Trust me, you don’t want to play the eggman land level.

  • bloody

    nope

  • fLekkZ

    Games for Gold April: Hitman and Deadlight
    enjoy.

    • AC130

      Lame :( Maybe next month it will not contain a zombie game or tower defense. Maybe.

    • bloody

      meh i allready have deadlight :(
