I can’t remember being given a choice, definitely remember something about it being available for the 5th.

 

Edit. This is from Game’s website: 

https://helps.game.co.uk/support/solutions/articles/77000477214-xbox-series-x-s-important-information-updated-10-02-21

 

No idea what kind of delivery I’ve got :lol:

 

edit. Checked And mine is definitely 12/03 in the email, but again don’t remember ever being given an option. 


Yeah this is all the same for me. 
 

I had read that disclaimer from Game before ordering so was fully intended on selecting the priority shipping. 
 

Once I got to the All Access form and all that, the shipping was set to 48 hr with no way to change it! I even tried so yeah, who knows. 
 

It says shipped one day before day of release, so it might be sent 11th for delivery on Sat 13th

Why does my Series S not automatically keep games up to date even though I have "Keep my games and apps up to date" set to On?


Its been a bit random on all of my xboxes. I wonder if it’s something to do with my router but I’ve never looked into it. For some it seems to work perfectly and for other less so.

Ah well not to worry, they probably charge an extra £20 for priority shipping anyway you know what Game are like! I didn’t even try and buy one outright because I didn’t want to lose the chance of getting one if they were mainly reserved for All Access deals.

You weren’t able to buy one outright anyways! They were all for All Access, which was why it just said “sold out” when added to basket.

There you go then, we’re really lucky dude, we got one :omg:

 

Thanks to whoever spotted this and posted it here btw, I am super grateful :D

 

Edit. Does make you wonder though, who exactly is getting the consoles allocated for Mar 5th :huh:

Oh dear, I’m afraid I’ve already begun looking - check out the HDTV discussion thread :lol:

 

I’m going for an LG OLED, hopefully the new  models coming shortly! 

Man, that's one of the biggest upgrades I've ever seen in games. I went from a 1080p LCD to hooking up the Series X to a LG CX OLED and at that moment I knew what the dude in 2001 felt when he said "My god it's full of stars"

 

Please look forward to it and have fun :)

Thank you, it will be a couple of months before I get the telly, I have got a nice TV at the moment but it’s an LCD and from what I’ve heard OLED is pretty transformative :)

Not true, I got a bundle with a controller and some game tat for £520. Delivering around 14 March too. Priority shipping was an option for me but it was something mad like £25 (still paid £10 for normal shipping though).

From the Digital Foundry Deals, this happened after the All Access allocation. It was tweeted out afterwards that bundles were available.

Series S came today! It's so dinky! I genuinely can't believe it. 

 

But, can someone guide me through game sharing? I'm losing my mind a little.

 

Series S is set up as my home console upstairs, Series X is downstairs. This way my partner can play a game we've purchased on my account (and Game Pass stuff) upstairs while signed in on her account, and I can play downstairs at the same time (I just sign in and can access stuff). Now, how do we make the opposite happen as well, where I can play upstairs on my 'home' console while my partner can access my content downstairs at the same time? I'd need to be signed in and allowing access to games on both boxes at the same time, which I don't think can happen.

Yep. Publishers have to opt in. Activision did the same with Call Of Duty. You had to buy the Series X version.

 

So the idea of smart delivery is great in principle.... 

 

seems Activision will do it for everything. $10 upgrade fee for the new gen version. They’re doing it with THPS too. XBS and PS5 versions coming out.

 

if you had them on the xb1 and PS4, it’s a $10 upgrade

I’m sorry to clog this thread up with returns issues, but is this a normal/valid response for Retailers (ShopTo)? Because I don’t think it is:

Especially as their website and order confirmation emails state the following:

Do I give ‘em hell?

Just quote their website back at them, I don’t get why they’re being funny. 


They’ve closed my help ticket on their website. So I’d have to create a new ticket to send a reply now. Bloody Shopto pricks.

You could always sell it on here as I’m fairly certain quite a few people are after one. 

 

yeah, someone’s already PM’d me. I’d rather sell it for RRP to someone on here who will use/enjoy the console rather than a scalper getting it.

Interesting.

I ordered a dualsense charge station from shopto on back order. They took the money via PayPal. I “sourced one from another retailer” and I cancelled the back order but haven’t gotten my money back yet.

I messaged them via PayPal on Saturday and opened a ticket with them tonight.

 

Need to keep an eye on them.

I tell you what is coolm. the first load of RDR2 takes a while. But after that you quick resume straight into the game. Genius 

 

I really want to start over and play RDR2 again. Just hoping there is a 60fps upgrade some day. Although playing it at native 4k at 30fps on XB1X is still the best visual experience i have ever had in gaming. The game is astonishing.

One major improvement from Oled would be the lack of Plasma Buzz in those opening snowy scenes in RDR2, which is something that stood out to me when I played RDR2. 

 

I didn't play much, but I'd be interested to give it another go if Microsoft's magic frame rate doubler gets rolled out to it.
