    Downloaded and played FH5 for about an hour on my sig rig, which ran FH4 quite nicely. I guess it's just too much of a step up visually, because I can tell it's a great looking game but it looks like arse on the 970.

    So I ordered a Series X through Telstra and it should be here on Monday! Going to be quite a step up from 1080 gaming on a 7 year old card to 4k on my TV!

    Anyone watch that Xbox aniversary thing? Firstly I think that bird forgot her pants in that leather number. Secondly no real ground breaking news really. Thirdly should I even waist my time and effort downloading the new halo multiplayer? Think I played the very first halo at my mates when the OG Xbox came out and it's been meh for me since.

    Have been playing the shit out of fh5 though. Have seen allot peepz getting banned for milking xp. Really enjoying WRC 10 on the series X as well at 120 fps. Must invest in a better wheel setup soon.

    Hope you all have been having fun in whatever your playing

    I was a bit the same re: halo but with this latest one It's somewhat reminded me of the OG games which I really like, looking forward to campaign but MP so far has been a blast.

    Oddly enough FH5 hasn't taken much of my interest from the few hours I've thrown at it... feels like just like the other forza games.

    does anyone know if theres an xbox series x controller out there that has light up led xyab buttons at all besides the shitty power A spectra one? My peepers arent the best anymore and love to play in the dark and sometimes like to look down at the buttons to see where my fingers are placed. Cheers guys

    Hey, can anyone tell me what the best way is to get my hands on an xbox series x? do i just call up JB and put my name on a list?

    I didn't realise there'd still be a shortage 12 months after release!

    yeah ring ether eb games or jb hifi and join the waiting list and go into the stores regularly cause Ive heard of allot of peepz just picking them up in stores as they allocate a few to each store randomly every now and then to stop the scalpers. Im glad I got mine on launch day now

    The SO is looking to get me a Series X for xmas and I mentioned the shortages etc, so we stopped in at our local EB yesterday and they said they weren't even taking names at the moment as they have no idea when their next shipments are and they don't want to disappoint people. Their only advice was to keep an eye on various Facebook groups and be ready to head in store to either put your name down or pick one up, and most of the time if they do get any they only last a couple of hours at most before selling out.

    Anyone unboxed their Halo Xbox Series X yet? What do you think of it?

    Not sure if it is worth changing to from a standard series X.

    It's $100 more though which is annoying.

    Wish I could see it in person first as well, before paying $100 for a paintjob. Have you seen it?

    it's more than a paintjob.

    as i said - if you see one buy that sucker - i'm kicking myself for not pre-ordering. I have nfi where i could get one if i wanted it.

    Wow, it looks awesome! And those stars lighting up under black light is cool. Controller is very nice as well, some fancy grip on it.

    It comes with Halo game for some reason? But that is included in gamepass so feels kinda stupid?

    But overall, you have convinced me, changing to it.

    I preordered but not picked up yet as was still deciding. I called them up and asked if they had one out on display to see in person but they said they didn't :(
