I havent received any email/ credit card confirmation but it says this. im getting a little antsy knowing its coming tomorrow and havent received detailed info. but your description and mine is pretty similar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm hoping it's just a case of them not updating the status on the website yet, but Amazon.co.uk seem to be cutting it a little fine for my liking.

 

I pre-ordered in June, and less than 6 hours before launch day, the status on the website still says "Preparing for Dispatch". It's been in this status since late last night.  My copy of Dead Rising 3 was despatched yesterday. I was a Prime member at the time I ordered so I've paid for expedited delivery, but still....  me a little nervous :)

I think Xendrome must have had gift card credit that covered most of the price of the Xbox one, which would make sense.

I think I'm going to take advantage of Best Buy's 360 trade-in promotion to get a new 360. I currently have an Elite model that is starting to make noise while reading discs. So I'm going to trade it in for $100, buy an E Holiday bundle off of Amazon, and walk way with a brand new, replacement 360 and 2 games for $150. Woot. That should hold me over until I decide to get a One.

Xbox UK just tweeted 15 minutes ago they have 101 Day One consoles to sell tonight at the Area One event in London. Might be worth going down there soon if you haven't got a pre-order.

Well that is just great. Thanks to Amazon, I now wont get my console until Monday. Everything was just fine until this morning, when they process the payment incorrectly and put the whole thing on hold. I get it all sorted, but now its too late to get it shipped on time.

Oh but I'll still get my game and extra controller! :crazy:

I had a similar issue with Game.

 

Apperently, out of nowhere, there were two Xbox's in my basket (I had checked on it multiple times before, so I know I didn't put two in there), and so the large transaction was declined by the CC company (who tried to call me, but had an old number).

 

Luckily, Game tried to take the payment on the 14th, so I had enough time to get it sorted.

 

I had 48hrs in which to contact them, otherwise I suppose I would have lost my pre-order position.

They've told me 100% it will not effect it being a Day One edition, or the delivery date, but I'm still kinda worried about that tbh.

Evidently they are still processing the pre-orders for Day One as a rep assured me I'd have it tomorrow despite not having shipping info yet.

Yeah I'm just a bit nervous too on it.  They could've slapped them on the trucks and will be putting in the shipping info later.  Almost wish I would have just pre-ordered at the local gamestop since we have one now, I keep forgetting since I generally just Amazon my games, my two X1 games are from Amazon due to my Discover Card cash back, only paid $24 for DR3 and AC4 lol.  My AC4 is sitting here on my desk.  Need to disconnect my PS3 sometime.

I would make a thread for the live launch event tonight at 11, but considering how few were following the ps4 thread, I don't think its worth it.

 

 

Plus, MS made it clear that there would be no surprise new game announcement.

      You no longer need Xbox Live Gold to play free-to-play games online on Xbox
      by João Carrasqueira



      Microsoft is finally allowing Xbox gamers to play online multiplayer games that are free-to-play without needing an Xbox Live Gold subscription. This includes some of the most popular games in the world, such as Fortnite, Rocket League, Apex Legends, Warframe, and so on.

      This change was initially announced back in January, after Microsoft was forced to backtrack on a price increase it announced for the Xbox Live Gold service that would have made it cost twice as much. Then, some Xbox Insiders started being able to play online for free in March, and now the good news is spreading to all Xbox users.

      It's a significant move considering that it's hard to consider a game to be free to play when it requires a monthly subscription on top of already having to pay for internet service. There are over 50 free-to-play games on Xbox platforms, so you'll now have access to plenty of experiences without having to shell out any more money.

      Microsoft has surprisingly been behind both of its competitors in this regard, too. Sony doesn't require a PlayStation Plus subscription for online multiplayer in free-to-play games on its consoles, and even Nintendo - which is often considered to be behind the times with anything regarding online services - only requires a Switch Online membership for paid games. Still, it's better for it to happen late than never at all.

      Xbox Deals with Gold feature Outlast, Resident Evil, and more
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Microsoft and select publishers discount a number of titles for a weekly Deals with Gold sale. This week, games like Outlast 2, Resident Evil, and more are available for substantially less. Below, you'll find the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 games with their respective discounts. The deals and games marked with an asterisk are only valid for Xbox Live Gold members, so you'll need an active paid subscription for the additional discount.

      Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One
      Xbox 360
      Many of the games are also backward compatible so you can play them on your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One.

      Which titles are you interested in? Did you buy any up? Let us know in the comments below.

      Xbox April update brings achievements to phones, Game Pass improvements
      by João Carrasqueira

      Microsoft has released the April update for Xbox consoles, including the Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as for the Xbox app on smartphones. As usual, this update brings a few new features, starting with the mobile app, which is finally getting widespread support for achievements. Microsoft announced it was rolling out this feature gradually last month, and everyone should have it by the end of April. You'll also be able to compare you achievements with your friends and see monthly leaderboards to compare against them.

      Over on Xbox consoles, this update brings some improvements for Game Pass subscribers. For starters, you'll now see a section called Play with Friends, which lists Game Pass games that are being played by your friends and lets you jump in and join them. Game Pass is also getting new game recommendations, for those times when you can't decide what to play next. These recommendations are based on games you've played before, so it could make it easier to find something you like.

      Microsoft is also making improvements to game downloads. If you're downloading a game and playing something else at the same time, your console can now let you know if that game is impacting your download speed, and give you the option to suspend it so you can download faster.

      As for known issues with this release, not a whole lot has changed, though Microsoft has removed issues related to the Xbox Series X|S controller and FPS Boost from the list, so presumably, those things are working fine now. You should be able to download the update now, but it will also install automatically sooner or later.

      Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming is finally coming to PC and iOS through the web
      by João Carrasqueira

      It's been a long time coming, but Microsoft has finally announced that it's going to start beta testing Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming for PC and iOS devices on the web starting tomorrow. The service launched for Android phones last September, and for a few months, you could test Microsoft's Project xCloud - the precursor to the full service - on iOS, but that ended up being scrapped due to Apple's App Store policies.

      Initially, the Xbox Cloud Gaming will only be available via invitation for select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Microsoft will begin sending out the invites tomorrow, and more people will be getting invites over time. Players from any of the 22 countries supported by Xbox Cloud Gaming will be eligible to be invited, so you may want to keep an eye out on your email if you want to participate.

      Microsoft announced in December of last year that it would make the service available on both iOS and PCs this spring, and sure enough, it's happening, albeit not via a dedicated app as had been spotted in the past. Instead, players will use a web browser to visit xbox.com/play and get started. To play, you can use a Bluetooth or USB controller, or touch-based controls in supported games, and you'll be ready to go. There seems to be no mention of keyboard and mouse support, however.

      Microsoft is a bit behind some of its competitors in terms of platform support, since both Stadia and GeForce Now already support PCs. Nvidia's service also runs on iOS, as does Amazon's Luna, which is also in preview. On the other hand, Microsoft includes a large library of games directly in Xbox Game Pass, making its service more compelling, especially after today's news.

      Cyberpunk 2077 gets a new hotfix with a host of fixes and improvements
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      CD Projekt RED (CDPR) has released a new hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077. The Polish gaming company released version 1.2 update last month and the new hotfix builds upon the initial update. Here is the full changelog for the update:

      Apart from Quest and Open World fixes, CDPR has also released some visual, UI and gameplay fixes. These include fixes for issues related to NPC clothing, NCPD officers spawning behind the player and more. Here is the changelog for the same:

      Lastly, there are some stability and performance, console, and Stadia specific fixes. These include fixes for graphical issues, memory management improvements and more. You can head down to check out the changelog:

      Cyberpunk 2077 had a rocky start with Sony delisting the game from PlayStation Store and Microsoft offering no questions asked refunds. Even with all the controversies, CDPR sold more than 13 million copies of the game in the first few weeks after the launch. Earlier today, the company confirmed that it plans to continue supporting Cyberpunk 2077 and sell it 'for years to come'.
