$599 CDN is the Final Answer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 September 2020

Less than a direct currency exchange, more than Stormblade's jar of pennies

Xbox Canada Tweeted the Canadian price today.

And $499 USD is the answer

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 September 2020

Start saving now...

So $659 CAD? With $699 CAD at EBGames?

Oh yeah, November 10th, 2020, is the date.

Now I have to go count that jar of pennies Stormblade left when he moved out.

Xbox Series S no longer a rumour

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 September 2020

The smaller Next Generation Xbox Series Console is officially announced

UPDATE: promo video added after the break.

Xbox Series S | Next-gen performance in the ˢᵐᵃˡˡᵉˢᵗ Xbox ever. $299 USD (ERP).

No optical drive in this version, so backwards compatibility from physical discs will not be a thing.

Unfortunately the announced $299 USD price means that the rumoured $599 USD Xbox Series X price is probably accurate. Hopefully it isn't more than that. (Although I am also reading that $499 USD is a strong possibility).

So. About STAR WARS™: Squadrons?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 August 2020

Am I (and Stormblade) going to be the only clan members buying this?

Primarily multi-player 5 on 5 TIE Fighters vs X-Wing battles. What I have picked up so far:

  • Budget title ($39.99 USD), although still promised as a complete game
  • First person view (inside cockpit) only
  • Multiple Star Wars locales
  • October 2, 2020

More details on the Official STAR WARS™: Squadrons website.

But more importantly, are you in? Or are you Rebel scum?
