is Ori being enhanced? I’ve not played it yet and it would be a great time to jump in.

It is, however unless I've missed something I don't think it's Day 1, but definitely quite soon.

 

I can't recommend the game enough though, it's fabulous.

Just thought I'd check my Argos preorder... And see that they cancelled it! Think there was some confusion as I pre-ordered both the S and the X. Seems they cancelled both!

 

Anyone know of places that were still getting occasional stock in for preorders?

So have they both been allocated elsewhere? 

 

Have they said why?

The Ori games are some of the few that, as a PS4 owner, I have envied being on the XB1 this gen - would have bought on the Switch several times were it not for the pile'o'shame. I look forward to downloading them on Nov 10th to enjoy in full 4k glory.

All the games except that kinect shit.

 

 

 

Just to be clear, because the tweet isn't as clear as it perhaps should be, that's not "Every Xbox and Xbox 360 game" that's "The ones that will play today on an Xbox One".

 

Still a fuckload, but still a smaller selection of Xbox OG than you can play on a 360.

That's shit. I always find Argos brilliant when things go well - but when something goes wrong they can be a nightmare to get an answer from. My advice is to hassle them on Twitter for a quick reply.

 

I had https://www.stockinformer.co.uk/checker-xbox-series-x running in the background when working and was able to grab a Series X when they became available on AO.com last week - may be worth keeping an eye on them in the hope that some retailers make more stock available through order cancellations or increased allocations?

There was a 1 console per customer rule instated by Microsoft, so that might have had to do with it. However, I had both ordered from Amazon Germany and until last week they didn't cancel anything. However, I made the decision to go for the Series X for now so I am down to 1 console pre-order again. 

 

Still kind of weird though since the Xbox Series S isn't sold out anywhere. 

 

Maybe they asked for a down/full payment by a certain date?

I don't know if I'm misinterpreting what you're saying, but Amazon, Argos and Game don't seem to have any to sell.

I'm just trying to check why. I've got a feeling when they cancelled the S, they actually cancelled both!

I've checked my statement, and see they took the payment and then refunded a few days after. So it appears the chap I spoke to was a bit too eager on the cancellation button!

Thanks, I will set up a notification to see if I can grab anything.

Awesome, if that's the case then anyone who hasn't played is in for a treat on November 10th! :D

 

This may be the first thing I play simply by way of the fact that it will be quickest to download :P

The X button on my two month old Elite series 2 controller is getting a bit sticky. This after the rubber grips on my OG elite controller came away after about two years. 

 

I do really like the Elite controllers but the QC on them is awful considering how much they cost.

Do you own an Xbox One?

 

Nope.

 

I have a PC, so I could play it now, and I don't know how taxing it is, but with 2 weeks to go I might as well wait and play it on my sofa, at 4K, with a proper controller.

 

Unless you were going to talk about how I could download a bunch of stuff to a USB drive in advance. Would that it were be possible to preload via a PC for the 'big day'.

I was, and no you can't download anything on your PC for Xbox.

I loved the first and bounced right off the second - it felt directionless.

Had a couple of hours on Ori 2 via GP. Lovely visuals. But gameplay felt a bit tired to me... boss battles in this day and age?

Finally got to speak to someone at Argos who advised the order was cancelled with the suppliers on the 1st October, but no note as to why. They apologised, and basically said tough luck. Lovely!

I don't think you expected a different outcome did you?
