Aside from Halo, only other game that made a strong impression on me. Day one for sure.

Looks cool. I wonder if you can actually get a splitscreen like that in game.

The Medium was the most impressive game to me. Looks great and right up my alley. The series X is my backup plan if I don't get a ps5, so if I don't, this will be a day one buy. Nice to see next gen only games at launch.

This is cross gen, xbox one series x and win 10

There were only 6 games that are apparently Series X win 10 and they are all a few years off, like Fable, Forza Avowed etc.

No, I'm pretty sure this is a next gen only game. Bloober came out a few weeks ago and said this game was only possible on next gen hardware because of the need of the SSD. The way the game flips back and forth between alternate worlds, I can see why that's the case.

And yes I do agree with others. I thought this was the most impressive thing at the show. This and STALKER 2.

I see it listed on wikipedia as series x win 10. Why is it available to pre order on xbox one if you cant play it on an xbox one? Am I missing something?

Ok, so I guess it's a bit of a naughty practice. On the Pre Order page it says Available on Xbox One and PC, but also says Pre-order for Xbox Series X Edition only. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/th...ot:overviewtab

I wouldn't expect to be able to order a game on a console I can't play it on. Buyer beware I guess.

The preorder price is $49.99, I guess not all next-gen game prices are trending upwards. Or maybe Game Pass games will cost less next-gen.

You are right though, I would expect this to play on XOX based on that page so they really ought to take care of it.

It's technically an indie game, like 2019's A Plague Tale: Innocence. Hopefully it's sold physically as well as digitally for Xbox. But I have a feeling it'll be digital only.

Can't wait for this! As the PS5 Silent Hill continues to look more and more like just a myth, this game has my full attention. They could release a date and word of a physical copy any day now...
