I’m really kicking myself for not getting Overwatch when it was last on sale. It’s $60 on the Xbox store and I can’t find any digital codes at any online retailer except Amazon and it’s $60 too.

Those with the windows phone does it allow you to access your Microsoft movie and tv library? Hopefully they'll come out with a app for ios and android user can use to access their library.

 

Just saw this in my email:

For a limited time, score bonus Microsoft Rewards points on purchases from Microsoft Store. The more you spend, the more you earn. 

It’s easy—shop your favorite Xbox games and digital content from Microsoft Store between now and February 17th. We’ll tally up your total spend, and you’ll be rewarded: 

$25 – $49 = 500 points 
$50 – $99 = 1,500 points 
$100 or more = 4,000 points

That doesn't seem great, and I noticed today they changed up the bing home page for MS Rewards searches to make me actually type something. At least I still have VIP star level till June, That's usually 6000 points on $60 for me. RE2make costs $60....  :-k

Yes. It is called Movies & TV, which if I'm not mistaken is the title of the app on the Xbox as well.

Same here. At least we have 10 months left! I've had my Lumia 950 for 3-4 years and it's starting to crap out. I looked at some phone prices for making the jump to either and it's too pricey. I'm just gonna shell out the $150 for a brand new Lumia 950 now and deal with that tough choice this December when we're forced to.


I picked up an HP Elite x3 when the Microsoft store had them on clearance last March. It should last me past the end of life for the OS. Then I might join the evil empire when it finally becomes a brick.

I wonder if they’ll open up the Anthem demo to do a stress test or something as the weekend goes along. Don’t really want to pre-order - after all the price debacles in November and December, I’m hesitant to pre-order anything at all - but I may go with a month of EA Access again just to try it out some more. Enjoyed the Alpha, but it was very limited.

On another note, played some Celeste tonight for the first time since last May apparently (according to achievement progress) because of all the chatter around here. The controls are definitely not as tight as they should be, and yes, it’s hard as balls at some points, but it’s still enjoyable, I love the music, and beating puzzles/levels gives a great sense of achievement. I only did level 8 (which I had apparently started but given up on partway in), but it was definitely a good time. Just my two cents.

Need a little help with the Xbox Marketplace.

 

Trying to buy the digital deluxe edition of Resident Evil 2 as a gift and when I go to the marketplace it only shows "Pre-order" then after that it's "Select a payment". 

>There is no visible option to choose "Buy as gift".

 

Does anyone know if a gifting option will appear if I were to purchase the game?

Or does the option to buy games as gifts only show up on the marketplace after a game has been released?

 

 

One of my nephews is deployed and I'm trying to get him RE2 as a surprise birthday gift.

If you’re ok with physical, it goes on sale around $20-30 quite often, less if you still have GCU with Best Buy. If you prefer digital (wouldn’t blame you), I’m sure another sale will come along soon. There’s an event starting on Thursday, and occasionally they’ll do free weekends after those are over or around them during which there’s also a sale, so maybe in the next few weeks. It’ll definitely go cheaper again and will most likely still be populated.

The big problem is that they’ve gotten smart and instead of just trying to sell a 2+ year old game for $60, they have the “Legendary Edition” or “Gold Edition” or whatever version it is now, which gives you some skins and/or loot boxes to help your cosmetic addiction start.

At least maybe now they will put more xbox games on IOS and Android. Get them cheevs on the go!

But for real I also had a windows phone till a year or 2 ago and I really miss it. iPhone blows, I had to switch over for iMessage :(
