Ah, that's where I already had an unfair advantage, as my wife recently gave me a 50th birthday present of a pile of cash and the instruction to treat myself to whatever I wanted. Let's face it, that's wife-code for "buy an Xbox" isn't it?

 

IT'S A TRAP!!! 

 

She meant a family holiday for everyone.

Should I do this and go all access though?  So if I stock up for 3 years live, and then get a code with all access for 2 years, does that mean i'm good for 5, or do the codes expire if not used.  Well aware you and this forum are not xbox customer service, but that I am treating you as such :lol:

 

We don't officially know of course.

 

But I've never seen a proper year + code with an expiry for Gold/GPU etc and they know damn well people have 3 years Game Pass already so presumably would be inclined to accommodate them.

Ah yes, forgot some will be updated to be series optimized. 

 

But the idea works in principle, right? Internal SSD is fine for old games until it fills up? 

 

They can't possibly tout BC and have it not work on the basic contents in the box so like 99.9 for several pages per cent certain.

Shit! :o 

 

(Actually her first suggestion was a new guitar so I think I'm probably OK.)

 

I've had my wife already say "I hope YOU get YOUR Xbox on Tuesday"

 

That is definitely code for her having already circled what she wants for the same price in the catalogue.

As much as I love the MEGATON EXCITEMENT DRAMA this better not interfere with me getting an Xbox series X tomorrow morning :angry:

That was my reaction too! :D I'm going with an instore pre order so off early to my local GAME for 8am opening.  No idea how busy it will be but today's news is not going to help!

I might pop to Game purely because I want to trade my PS4 Pro / XB1X when this launches rather than faff around with eBay, but I doubt it’ll be that difficult to pre-order online as long as you’re prepared. The PS5 situation was mostly down to Sony deciding that a clusterfuck would be fun and not giving adequate time for retailers / consumers to prepare.

With the pre-orders are they taking cash up front or what? I might put one in if not whilst I wait to see if the 3080 comes back in stock this side of the next ice age. 

I know Argos take the full amount upfront but vast majority of online retailers is on dispatch or small deposit required. Game instore for PS5 was £10 so guessing be similar tomorrow.

Tell her if she keeps that up, you'll have an Ex and the S.

Do I need to be pre-ordering this tomorrow morning if I want one for Christmas? What’s the likelihood of them running out?

In my experience every past console launch I've done has had only a trickle of stock between launch and Christmas. Sony have made a load of noise about how there will be stock between now and Christmas and I'll expect Microsoft to do the same, but there isn't much time after launch.

 

I'd say order now but that's based on nothing but experience.

Sorry if this has been asked / answered before.

So, I've got game pass on my PC, but am sorely tempted with the All Areas deal, which will give me GPU - if I go for that, would I then have to cancel the payment for my PC Gamepass and the All Areas one take over? I don't want to end up paying twice for the same thing! 

The GPU would take over from when you enter the code you are given. The next payment they take would be at the end of that period i.e. in 2 years time if you get the All Access version. This will be shown in the Subscriptions page of your Microsoft account

Just thinking, Xbox is a no brainer for all the Bethesda stuff inevitably coming to Gamepass, and for Cyberpunk.

 

But all the Bethesda stuff looks and plays great on my OneX, and the Cyberpunk patch isn’t out till next year.


What’s the point of upgrading right now?? A better looking Gears 5?

Can I just say thanks to Darren and all the folks that have replied on buying/stacking Gold and upgrading for a quid. I was debating All Access vs just buying the console out right and seeing if I could find a cheap Gamepass Ultimate Deal. 

 

Don't have to ponder that now. I've got three years worth of GPU thanks to the tips. I suppose I can now try Flight Sim out on PC :P

 

Now all I've got to do is work out if I want the Series S or Series X tomorrow....

Just had the following from Amazon...

 

Hello,

The Xbox Series X will be available for pre-order on Amazon.co.uk tomorrow after 8:00 am BST.

The Xbox Series S, controllers and other accessories will also become available for pre-order throughout the day. Stock is limited and we expect demand to be high. 

 

Seems like it's only the X that's going up for pre-order at 8am and people wanting an S will need to keep checking. That's a bit nasty.

Until they have exclusive next gen stuff, it's kind of pointless if you own the 1X.  I think The Series X is my next MS console - but am waiting for that title that makes it a must buy, like Halo or (now) a new Bethesda RPG. Otherwise, like you say, the 1X is a pretty nifty console.
