Not a deal, but they added FFXIII to the marketplace.

Has anyone used the seagate game drive hub? Bestbuy has it as one of the deals of the day.. $140 is tempting for all that storage

https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=5997208

I have the non-Xbox branded version of that drive. It works great. The extra USB ports are nice. I mainly just use them to plug in cords for charging, but you can actually hook another hard-drive up to it. (I transferred the contents of a 5tb drive to an 8tb drive through that front-hub) That seems like a good deal and it matches very well with the X1S.

I'm all set for Final Fantasy Xiii to be BC and on sale

My FBI Agent just slapped the bacon out of my hand when i went to click purchase before

I left off during Chapter 10 on Disc 3

I have no idea what's going on

Lightning > Cloud

 

The boss fight at the end of Chapter 12 is the hardest boss fight in the game not counting the final fight and post game. So you have a couple chapters to get back into it before that ;)

Any body else having problems getting the punch card to activate in the app? 

 

Looks like it's broke for me.  I can't get it to give me a green checkmark.

When I opened the app it was already checked for me so I almost ignored it thinking it was the subscribe to Game Pass one. The punch cards have always been wonky so I'd just click the box once or twice then quit the app and wait for a day or so to check again. Thankfully there's a bit of time left with this one.

No idea, but when it fails, it points me to a support page with how to ensure that it will work fine (played less than two hours, XB1's on, PC's on and updated, not playing the game at the moment, and a few others) and it fails every time even though I meet every criteria. I've tried for a week to see if the XBL downtime was the issue since that was when I first tried it, but nothing works. I then just contacted CS with the refund page and they denied it for the vague Microsoft Terms of Sale reason.


My issue was a billing error. The circumstance was very complicated and I talked to one CS person who wasn’t helpful. She was telling me to do something I already had done with the “request refund” page. It’s was frustrating because it was as if she just couldn’t understand I had done all that. I talked to someone through the online chat and they were much more helpful and fixed it right away. I see this with a lot of customer service people. Some do just enough to help the easy stuff out but then there are the people who do whatever they can(think outside the boxer ask another department about fixing it) who really make a difference. It’s a roll of the dice. I still can’t believe the best customer support I’ve probably ever had was through an online chat.

So the hitman dlc is hitman 1 just in hitman 2 engine / upgrades? And new achievement's related to hitman 1 in hitman 2?

Did you use the exact link? Searching for it in the store (via website, app, or console) will show as unavailable.

Here's that link: https://www.microsof...ty/c1g7pjrnd95c

Got it with your link, I had been searching the store for it earlier.

I've been searching for various TV deals over the past week or so. I think the Samsung 49" q6 will be the one I get. The 55" was going to cost about $250 or so extra. 4k qled and 4 hdmi ports is a huge plus. No more using a hdmi hub anymore!

Thought Strange Brigade would go on sale for Black Friday so I skipped the last time it was on sale. FML. I bet it ends up in Game Pass by Spring anyway.

I was looking at this earlier, except I wanted to use it for my PS4 Pro since I have more games on that than I do my X1X. Apparently the PS4 doesn't support these kinds of drive hubs.

As for the price, it's definitely good, except I've seen the "normal" price on Amazon is $160, so it doesn't seem as big of a savings even though the MSRP is listed as $240. But considering I septn $120 on a 4TB earlier this year, I'd definitely jump on it.

I spent $175 on my 8tb in February. $140 is a decent deal. You can probably find a better deal if you wait, but then you spend all your time waiting for the perfect deal. I love having all my games installed and even games from Game Pass or weekend trials installed that I don't own.

Price must have finally come down. The Xbox branded hub was always $50 more than the regular black one every time I looked. I got two of the drives that aren't xbox branded, one for my X and one for my girlfriend's S. No issues so far.

I'm trying to use available credit from redeeming Bing points in my Microsoft account balance to buy something as I have $8.01 set to expire tomorrow. However when I try to select something to purchase and it brings up the payment options, it won't let me select to pay from my Microsoft balance and strangely enough it shows $0.00 available. Any ideas what's causing that?

Outcast Second Contact looks kinda interesting, not much in the way of info on it on YouTube though.

It's an old open world PC adventure. If I was nostalgic for that era I wouldn't have gotten bored a couple hours in. (Grew up on linear and open worlds that had big ole arrows showing da way) I was interested in it but I've been on a 'if it annoys me for a bit I'll move on to the next of my back catalog' kick.

I could definitely see it having been someone's favorite game when it first released.

Bad news, bud: it expired already. It really expires about six hours before the listed expiration date. I try to remind people whenever someone mentions expiring Bing credit, but these posts are few and far between. You can get customer support to reinstate your credit - and it'll expire a year from today - but honestly, it's not worth the time.

Was that purchase split between credit and CC? Maybe their system can't handle refund multiple funding sources instead of just giving the option to pick one or make it always be credit?

Hmm I can still access Pro Evolution Soccer 2019... And the store page for it seems to indicate that I own the full version game, without any caveat or disclaimer that it is only for the weekend. Is it safe to assume that we were actually given a $60 game that just came out for free? Or is it too early to tell and people who mocked people who expected free stuff are still in the right...

Off topic I know but does anyone have recommendations for a projector? I'm going to be building a media room and I feel like the A/V rabbit hole goes  too deep. People have incredible budgets when it comes to this kind of stuff but I was hoping to spend less than $1500 and less than $1000 would be ideal. Or maybe if someone had a really big tv recommendation. I'd appreciate any help cause I've been reading articles and watching videos for a while now and don't feel like I have a good handle on it.

With that budget, and not wanting to deal with complexity, I wouldn't go for a projector.  I'd look for a Black Friday-ish deal on a Sony XBR65X900F, if 65" is "really big" enough for you.  A projector can't really compete with a good 4K TV in the HDR arena.

 

EDIT: Best Buy's BF ad has this TV for $1600, which is a bit above your price range.  You may also want to look at the Vizio P65-F1 which is a bit cheaper.

My last post ever on the Bad Lands GP error (highlights only):

  • Sent a reply from the first MS Rewards support request yesterday.
  • Had sent another support request just in case (now closed).
  • They said that it was a configuration issue with the GP reward I had previously redeemed.
  • They added 18,000 points to my account to redeem another 3-month GP reward.

Whew, I'm happy that it has been resolved. /rant

 

Now back to the regularly scheduled BF sales talk.  :)

 

Edit: Grammatical error corrections.

No. It was over a mess up between a Microsoft agent(who was trying to help) and myself that led to two refunds of gamepass while at one point having paid for it while not having access. It was so complicated and took days to straighten out. While not split, one payment was from my bank accountand one was Microsoft points. Thankfully the person I chatted with at the end looked past all of that and just gave me 3 months of game pass since my card still had been charged and not refunded.

All things considered, I don't think the Pokemon movie looks bad at all. They acknowledge and embrace the world, while the animators themselves have a rough battle balancing bringing the Pokemon to life, I think I was expecting more terrifying, but personally they got the right note of cartoon and existing in real world look together.

Monster Hunter on the other hand. Oh boy...
