Services shitting themselves are very regional, so you should always consult this sort of status page. Also, if you request it, it'll email or message you on Xbox when a specific outage is resolved.

That All Access deal feels expensive right - it's almost £700 - you can trim well over £100 off that with the gold conversion?

 

 


I went for it as no guarantee you could have done the gold conversion on launch day as plenty were saying it might end on new console launch, I added a year to it with the trick and tbh could have easily bought it outright but assumed I would be getting a PS5 too until the underwhelming launch line up.

 

What is annoying is I can’t seem to just pay it off :doh:

Typical. Nobody in the house and got all my work done early to have a few hours of uninterrupted gaming :(

You can just pay it off can’t you? In the thing I signed it says you can, and that’s what I’ll be doing - either way, it’s interest free so, yes, it’s full price for Gamepass but other than that it’s just rrp.

Does anyone know if Half-Life 2/Orange Box ever got a 60fps boost? Last time I played it I think it had a resolution boost and the frame rate stabilised at a steady 30fps but that was a couple of years ago maybe.

yes, I checked that as well. Can pay it off it in one go or just pay the £30 at 0% interest.

I thought I’d read you could but in the Klarna app there is no option to overpay or pay off!?

Oh boo :( 

 

I didn’t see that, but I thought the whole checkout experience was a bit wishy washy. 

 

either way happy to have one and be out of the race to try and grab one, even if I have to wait a week for it to arrive.

5th March is only one week away, I feel lucky to have got one that soon :D

 

 

My order is now at the packing stage but also now has an available date of 12th March. So who knows...?

How many weeks before @Stanley is looking into getting an OLED.

 

I can start a sweepstake 

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!

I’ve had the same it’s probably just the stage it remains at until stock is available - sounds like they’re expecting it between the 5th and the 12th, but who really knows?!

Pretty sure that when I was in the queue for the SX yesterday that a delivery date 05/03 was only for those choosing priority delivery. It was 12/03 otherwise. 

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: 

Quote

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.
