Damn, then are normal Eneloops enough or do I need to get Pro in order to drive the controller properly?

Both eneloop and eneloop Pro have the same voltage so the only difference is in capacity. Eneloop pro will last longer but the basic ones are good enough. They last me a week easily even with relatively long gaming sessions everyday. And honestly doesn't really matter since you always have another pair ready to go.

I don't think you need to worry much. It might get delayed by a few days like it did for me, but you will most likely get it.

 

The demand for XSX is so low in India that you need not worry, I think. I just visited a Games The Shop store today and was told that for new games, they usually only have PS games available. For Xbox, they will get them only on demand :(

Loaded up on Game Pass Ultimate and I've bought digitally only for most of the last generation so I'm okay on the games front. 

 

My pain is the limited accessories available for the Xbox. Been on the market to pick up a compatible wheel but looks like I'll have to import it from Dubai or something.

EneloopPro 2550mah: 500 cycles : 1000 bucks

Eneloop 2000mah: 2100 cycles :  860 bucks

 

AmzBasics 2400mah: 1000 cycles : 1000 bucks

AmzBasics 2000mah: 1000 cycles : 659 bucks

 

Are Eneloop better than Amz?

Because it certainly makes sense to go with Amz 2400mah option as Eneloop Pro are rated for only 500 cycles.

Or even normal Eneloop with 2100 cycles.

1000 cycles would mean at least ~12 years of play with 3 hours everyday. That 2100 cycles claim could be a typo. The normal ones should be fine.

The value proposition of Xbox brand just skyrocketed with this Bethesda deal. 

 

Non-owners should now consider getting an Xbox soon. 

 

Nah I'm sticking with my PC. Playing Bethesda games without mods (or limited mods) is lulz.

I've noticed in these past few months that Xbox gets better deals and games from GP than on PC. 

But for mods, I'll use it on my PC, if they can run (no plans for an upgrade yet) .. those big boo.. fancy mods will be missed.

This doesn't seem like a super duper big deal right now but just wait till Starfield draws closer and this will be such a big deal. Xbox sales will skyrocket. I'm a huge fan of this decision. PS Studios finally has a decent competitor. They were reigning supreme until today.

Still too early for series x as all these games are playable in Xbox one consoles. Would suggest in saving for a good 4K or Oled TV before getting the series x later like mid gen. 
 

Still hate the fact they don’t make oled tv smaller than 55 inch as most Indian homes have small rooms unlike in west. Guess the manufacturers wants to maximize the profit margins and even more in CoVid times due to high demand caused by WFH.

Yeah GP is treated like a 3rd class citizen on PC. But since Bethesda is first party they should come to GP day one on PC. That plus regional pricing if you decide to buy.

Phil Spencer Comments on Bethesda Games Releasing Exclusively On Xbox and PC

 

 

 


 

I think after reading that if ppl still believe games like Elder Scrolls,Fall Out & Doom will not be released  on Playstation,they are real fools 

 

those games were bread & butter for Bethesda & they already have a large community as mentioned above on PS 

 

the newer games like Indian Jones or Starfield (if it already hasn’t been developed for PS using lot of money & resources of the production budget) may be exclusive 

 

 

It’s pretty clear from his comments above what one can expect on the PS & Xbox side of things from this deal 

 

I personally am not a big fan of Bethesda games as the last game I spent more than 15 hours on was Skyrim (Have Doom reboot in my backlog) 

 

Dishonoured was a crazy a*s good series that I know I missed (might pick it up in future) 

 

But expecting the existing IP’s specifically the ones that have big scope of new instalments to not release on PS is foolish 

 

The studios & their new IP’s are the real asset for now for Xbox brand 

Don’t expect them to show up on PS going forth 

 

That argument may not hold true. Why would a fully owned MS studio actually launch on competing platforms knowing it would eat into their overall platform sales? That's like expecting Rare Replay to have released on Nintendo platform cos that's where majority of the fanbase played it.

The whole reason MS acquired Bethesda was to build an exclusive line-up. They might as well had an exclusive deal for new IPs with Bethesda instead of buying them outright if they plan on releasing heavy-hitters on both platforms. 

 

While I won't discount the eventual launch of the games on Playstation, it's very unlikely that MS would launch on PS day 1 going forward at least. They'd probably adopt a model similar to what Sony's doing these days with their IPs by launching them on Xbox after a couple of years if at all.
