    Not yet, but there's almost assuredly development on one for later.

    I really want a local multiplayer game around launch for when I have family over. And there aren't as many Kinect focused games as I'd hoped. Fighter Within fills both needs but Kinect Sport Rivals will probably be better (when it's released). So I'm probably going Fighter Within or Forza 5 if it has split screen Kinect support. And Killer Instinct since it's only $20.

    Also not sure how Games with Gold would work next-gen since the library will be so small to start.

    Plus is launching with games for the PS4 so if MS were to bring GwG to the X1, there's already a precedent out there

    MS has already said there won't be any indie titles til next year so I don't think they have much to offer for free off the bat.

    I don't really care as I will already own all the old games they put out by the time they put them out but it would be a good place for someone new to start on 360, especially as they get to keep the games for good without having to continue paying for Live.

    Until the recent delay, the first title announced was Driveclub and that's not an indie title. Sony wasn't only set to put indies on Plus this fall.

    But that's what most of them will be, maybe entirely now with the delay. GwG or PS+ as it is now is a great way for late adopters to catch up on older AAA games. But with a new generation it will be a great way to get exposure for indie titles. I'm not expecting more than that for a few years.

    A few years? Maybe GwG but not Plus. Unlike GwG, they put up recent games on there and not stuff from 5+ years ago. We'll probably see more launch titles available by summer. I suspect Knack for example to be the first retail game after Drive Club to be put up.

    I have no doubt Knack will be on there asap.

    You're probably looking in the wrong place if you have any interest in local multiplayer. Nintendo is pretty much the only company left that puts that kind of stuff out with any real consistency. It might as well be dead everywhere else.

    I'm going to be the only one playing my X1 99% of the time. But it would be nice to have a few games for family gatherings or get togethers. I think the Kinect "shovelware" as people here like to call it, is perfect for those situations. Games like Kinect Sports Rivals, Fighter Within and dance games should be pretty fun when played socially and locally. Will they be classified as great games? Probably not. But no doubt fun when played with others right next to you.

    Nice to see them stepping up their game. Even as an XBOX fanboy i've always liked Playstations commercials better.

    I liked the ads for the Original Xbox and the early 360 ones but yeah PlayStation has been the best advertiser since 95. Although the early PS3 ads were kinda weird and not as good as the early 360 ones IMO. I like the ad but I also feel like it could of been better....

    Weird? Creepy is a better way to describe it. Remember that insane baby doll ad? Japan makes questionable content.

    Anyone know how long the wait will be to get a system? Since they are not taking any payments for opening day.

    If you don't have a pre-order, I would say you probably won't be able to get one until about Christmas at the earliest. It seems like both MS and Sony are shipping a lot of units, so I think that's a fair guess.

    very disappointed by the news today that the PS4 won't play audio cds or even mp3 files.

    do we know if the X1 can play audio cds and mp3 files?
