Since 3DS means 3DS, WiiU and Switch all have that feature.

I understood what you were saying I just didn’t believe your statement. I had never seen it. How could it possibly be fact.

There are literally only two buttons you can press at the subpage for a game in the eShop: 'buy' and 'add to wishlist'.

Is this old news to you guys?! I never knew!
Isn't it a bit premature to stop production of Xbox One already? Or are they just throwing in the towel?
Can't imagine Sony doing that with PS4 - PS1, 2 and 3 carried on production for a long time, longer than 5 years anyway.

Can't see how the X is worth £200 more atm, are there any specific X games out there to take advantage of the extra power? :?

They just replaced it with Xbox One S. I'm pretty sure Sony stopped selling fat PS3 when PS3 Slim came out last-gen and Nintendo stopped selling the first bulky DS when they released the DSLite. Seems like a very common thing.

That said I hope my standard Xbox One runs until the end of time because I have never had such a quiet console and as far as I read both S and X are a little noisier.

Maybe I misinterpreted, I assumed they were talking about both the original and the S.

Microsoft ended up buying Obsidian and another company called Inxile

Think they are really ramping up for an aggressive Xbox 3 domination of you ask me

You talk about InXile as if you don't know them.

They're pushing heavily into RPG territory it seems. Maybe they realised that's what people bought the original Xbox for at the time? Or maybe they just want to have Witcher 3 successes exclusively for their platform? Between Obsidian and InXile and Playground Games working on a big RPG it certainly seems like it.

I don’t think I’ve heard of Inxile before? Apparently they made Wasteland 2. I never played it

Why the focus on RPG’s is interesting.

InXile is Brian Fargo's studio, the guy behind Bard's Tale and Wasteland, among other things. They also did Hunted, that Gears of War meets fantasy coop game from last gen which was surprisingly fun.

Definitely a good fit for Microsoft's portfolio. I'm not too thrilled about them buying Obsidian though. I get that they are on shaky legs at all times but to me it seems that they really flourished in their post-Bethesda Kickstarter period and I don't know if publisher shackles (and more importantly deadlines) are a good thing for them.
