Awesome! Can't wait to see the TV stuff in the next version. I mean, whether you liked the Xbox One's direction or not... that's pretty damn cool.

I hope they let you pick what console you want purchases to DL on. Home console in the living room, play on my office console.

I agree, this holiday lineup is looking okay enough to tide me over for a bit though, mostly looking like I'll be playing destiny and halo, and I'm okay with that!

Halo And halo 2 and halo 3 and halo 4.... Should hold me till next year. What did somebody say destiny: The halo edition ( moving along)

Of course, this is the stable release. That is the point of the beta release. Test....test....test.....alright looks good...stable release. Rinse, wash, repeat.

Great feature, will be perfect for when I'm at work and want a game to be ready by the time I get home. Damn good next gen feature.
