No, stupid is spending good money on a bad system. You seem to find the $20-$40 each week to buy games but your console is falling apart. Take the L on this Xbox1 and scrap it. Then you will save money on all the physical games you can actually use and then flip them back into GameStop when you're done and buy more.

No, my console is not falling apart. The drive just doesn't work. I'm not rebuying a console that's only a year and a half old. That would be stupid. I also don't want to flip discs. I dislike using physical media and only resort to using it when absolutely necessary.

Im surprised people still even try to help you. Every time someone does you knock them for it. Embarrassing

My advice for CSRs: there is no in between, either be patient and understanding, or yell and threaten them. I go with the first option but I had a roommate that only got results by being over the top rude and not backing down. I listened to him trying to be nice a few times and he just got jerked around. I've had the opposite effect, I only get results when I'm really patient and emphasize how it's not that CSRs fault.

I usually am, and was calm with both reps yesterday. After three and a half hours though I was getting pretty pissed off. On the call wait system now...

So block me then, I don't really care. Saying to just scrap my console and take a loss isn't being helpful, I see it as being a jerk.

I understand it's the principle of the thing, but if you've had to spend over 3 1/2 hours sorting this out and the code only cost you $20 it seems you could have worked for an hour or less depending on how well you get paid at your job, rebought the game, or got an access sub and still had two hours more of your life and a lot less frustration to deal with. Sometimes it's better to take the L and move

Except they already took the L, just because you refuse to accept it doesn't mean it's not yours

I was on chat support. Got absolutely nowhere. He offered me a free month of live for my trouble, told him no thanks, I want a refund or the game added to my account, so now gotta go through all this again.

Then it looks like you don't actually have a problem.


  1. 1 John 1:7,9

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Something I forgot to include in my previous reply:  do we know if ME3 is available to play on :xb1: outside of having EA Access or the disc?  As in, does owning it digitally (so you would be able to DL it and play it on a :360: console) NOT WORK for :xb1: ?

 

EDIT - Another thing to check for.  Are you able to download the game on your :360: (assuming you have it hooked up)?

There's something I want to say to you but instead I'll just say this.
I know you're all invested with this lemon of a console but it's really costing you a lot of time and frustration. I am a person that values my time and I'm willing to be called out when I'm fighting a losing battle. Since you've been posting on here, I've yet to hear anything positive by you. So, my advice, if you choose to take it, will result in many positive experiences and hopefully you will make progress in your quest to be a happier gamer and person. Nobody is saying you have to be a flipper. God knows you aint about that life. Lol.

That's weird. I own a physical copy but I can't play it without the disc in. When I look it up to buy digitally, I only get the option to "try it". I can't buy it even if I wanted to.

Its worked this way for me ever since I had an EA Access Trial last year. I had the games installed from my disc and started my free month. Ever since then I've been able to play them without my discs at all. The weirdest part is they do the same thing for me on the 360, even though a digital version of the games doesn't exist on that platform due to storage issues most likely......

You're probably looking at the www.microsoft.com URL and not the www.xbox.com URL --> http://marketplace.x...15-d8024541095d

 

However, it doesn't seem to be available for digital purchase.

This assumes you can substitute work hours for time dealing with CSRs. I always find these arguements weird, because if I already worked 40 hrs in a week I can't sub work hours and it is more productive not to eat into my earnings. Even if I could pick up extra hours, I'd rather turn off my brain & play solitare in my underwear while on hold than spend more time at work looking through microscopes.

*edit*

I know you're all invested with this lemon of a console but it's really costing you a lot of time and frustration.


I don't see how buying a new console would solve the issue of a digital purchase not showing on his account. Wouldn't that kind of response annoy you?

I'll donate $10 if someone matches me to this praxus character to get him/her to move on. This is clogging up my notifications.

Is this not off topic enough? How about favorite partially gelatinated, non-dairy, gum-based beverages? Krusty's is the classic, but I prefer Wendy's Frostys.

The lack of availability for Mass Effect 2 and 3 has been an issue of contention ever since multi-disc game started getting converted alongside backwards compatibility. Last time I brought it up, the consensus seemed to be that EA was holding them hostage to encourage people to subscribe to access. Praxus' post today is the first I've ever heard of them being available for purchase digitally, GameStop has a listing for both games via a physical download card but they are not available for purchase online. Clearly Praxus found one at retail? Their existence at all is actually a really big deal in terms of the games being available for purchase.

I know some people were talking about that 55 inch TCL tv at best buy, Amazon is selling the next model down for $400 for the 55 inch. It's got fairly decent specs for gaming 4k & HDR 10, although I'm not in love with that HDR peak brightness. Is a pretty nice price though.

So what you're saying is Praxie girl has stumbled upon the mythical ME3 full game download card that many have thought was extinct???? 😳
