Looking at XBO hardware numbers for the UK there has been an uptick in sales post E3 compared to the Switch and PS4. The power of GamePass most likely

I'm waiting to see if there's a price drop towards the end of the year (given that the console will be going into its final year prior to its replacement), but Game Pass is almost entirely the reason for my considering the console.

Can the X1 output game audio through the controller? I seem to remember they patched that in but the internet seems torn on the subject.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

Have to admit I've never heard of that before. Looking at my own controller I don't see any speaker on it. I've just got the bog standard X1X controller so it might be a feature on the pro controller.

Haha, not quite what I meant. On PS4 you can plug a set of headphones into the controller jack and get all the audio through there. At launch X1 only did chat through that port just wondering if they patched it in.

My favourite feature of this gen.

Ah, get you now. Just had a go with a normal set of headphones and nowt happened except the controller stopped responding. So no it would seem.
