The XSX games for me will be: Watch Dogs Legion, Gears Tactics, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Tetris Effect, Mortal Kombat 11U and I’ll be playing the original version of Control for the first time. Fuck the Ultimate Edition though, that whole thing is fucked up.

I have never been so mad at a publisher. What 505 and Remedy did with the UE of Control completely soured me on what was GOTY of 2019.

It's a very similar list to mine, except for MK. Are you getting that again or for the first time?

MK11U is a free upgrade if you own the original. Well, to be more accurate: The base game is upgraded for free for XSX. Then you can buy the new content stand alone if you own content before now. (That it by the whole thing in one swoop)

I’ve always been an MK fan so I’ve had MK11 since launch. This upgrade and the LONG OVERDUE inclusion of my favourite character, Mileena, means I will be back on it.

Sounds complicated. ;)

Nothing is ever simple when it comes to video games anymore. Even the Mario 3D All Stars Collection needed some explanation which is just sad.

That's the manufactured digital scarcity game isn't it? Nintendo are crazy.

Still wavering about what my launch games are going to be. I'm think 3 game purchases + game pass will be more than enough.

Months ago I was thinking Doom Eternal, Cyberpunk and Dirt 5. But now Doom's on game pass, Cyberpunk I can wait for the "next gen" patch and Dirt 5 I'm 70/30 about (70% of getting it, I do like a driving game for quick blasts, which will be great for Quick Resume, but I love Horizon 4 and want to see what's going on there first).

Now I'm thinking 1 of the Ubisoft games, one day it'll be Watchdogs the next Valhalla. But I might get Borderlands 3, it's getting a patch, the complete version is on deals.

It's really strange, normally at launch it's a struggle to find a handful of things you want to play. But I think with the improvements for backcompat and coming from a day one Xbox One I'm going to be spoilt for things to play.

Completely missed the boat on pre-orders so won't be able to get one on launch but any ideas on when the second wave of XSX might be available?

Kicking myself for not looking into it more when it was first announced as that All Access deal is far too good to turn down.

The impression I'm getting is that there's going to be a lot more Xbox stock than Playstation, I think they've even said they're holding some stuff back so you could get one in store day one. So if you're on it I don't think it'll be to hard to get one soon.

I'd keep my eyes open if I was you, some store have already had 2nd round of pre-orders. If you're on Twiiter @DealsFoundry Digital Foundry's deals account seems to be quite on top of it. Otherwise, sign up to Amazon alerts.

I actually just tweeted my local Game to ask if they were getting any more pre-order stock for release and their reply wasn't a straight up "no". They came back with "No news on our end yet but keep your eyes peeled! If we have some we'll tweet it!"

Got notifications on for their tweets now so just have to wait and hope. I would do the same with Smyths but they seem a bit useless.
