It has to be on if your game is stored on your external, and you want to use instant-on.
Gotcha. I don't have an external HD, just the one it came with.

I don't know how people fill their hard drives. I never even get close. But then, I'm kind of a minimalist, always throwing things out, both in real life and digitally.

Two journalists from Brazil reporting that their Xbox one X have bricked after updating, one being a project scorpio edition, and neither stating if they were part of the preview program or anything else....




I wonder if they were using modded consoles or something, because there hasn't been an update for over a week since everyone is out on holiday vacation.

Sent my 1X for repairs. No Xbox for the next few weeks. I rushed to get Red Dead done haha.

Guess the switch will do for the next few weeks.

I’ve had some issues with HDR for two games now where switching HDR off made the games look a lot better. The first was Red Dead 2 and now Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. Both of these games looked washed and too bright with HDR but with it off they look exceptionally better. I’m gaming on a Sony 800D model which is a basic 4K TV with HDR 10 capabilities. Reviews for this set are that its great for fast motion with very low input lag but basic when it comes to HDR. The funny thing is Assassin’s Creed: Origins looked phenomenal with HDR turned on so this is confusing me.

Dont both of thoses games use fake HDR? Or SDR with some modifications.

Rdr2 doesn't have real hdr at the moment, they're working on a patch, it looks really grey right now with it on. Odyssey should look good though, haven't heard anything else, looks fine on my tv.

I'm not the only one, I did a quick google search on the HDR problems I'm having. As it turns out there are loads of reports with people experiencing the same issues on all different platforms. The game looks amazing without it but I miss how much HDR helped enhance the overall presentation like it did in Origins especially during the night.

Ohh well, Odyssey seems like an even bigger adventure than Origins is. And I didn't come close to finishing Origins but its nice to know its there waiting for me. But I don't think I'll be going back to it for some time. It feels like the combat in Odyssey has been tweaked to my liking. This should hold me over until Anthem.
