You must click on the link in the Microsoft Rewards app once it shows that you spent $40 to receive the bonus points. I think the countdown timer is til 2:00am Pacific Time.

 

It also does not round up to the nearest dollar. Mine showed $30, but my true total was around $30.50 or so. Once I bought a $9.99 game it showed $40.

 

Guess it went away at 1:00am PT, an hour before sales ended.  I bought some stuff and it was already gone...Was gonna get them anyway, but I shouldn't have waited so long.

I could be wrong, but I thought that was the way it worked even before GPU?  I remember there being posts on reddit back before GPU even started that described game sharing GP.  The other person had to search for the game in the store.  Since it's not tied to their account (it's tied to the home console), the GP section in Games and Apps won't be "active" for them.

 

I remember when I signed up for the $1/month GP deals (before GPU was a thing), I would tell my game share partner to look up the list of GP games on the website and then search in the store to download whatever he wanted to play.  (This was before they added that Game Pass tab to the Home screen.)

Yeah he might have to seek them out but should be able to download

It's never showed GWG or GP games on my girlfriend's S which has been set to my Home console for two years unless I'm signed in.

Ok, thanks.  I'm just misremembering then.  Gettin' old.  Though with my backlog, he's got more than he'd ever have time to play.  Probably more than my 5 year old nephew will have time to play.

After putting in all the codes, I got 6 months of Ultimate Game Pass for $1. Which is not too shabby. I like how it has tons of different cool games that I can try. Does the games list ever change, or is it pretty static? Like do they add new games, and remove old ones? The newest game that I saw was The Outer Worlds.

My Xbox One also automatically transferred over 55 games and apps that I had on my 360, that's a pretty cool feature.

They generally ad 6-10 games a month and remove 4ish.

Technically it was yesterday. Japan is like 15 hours or so ahead of America. It's almost the 4th there.

So, if you have those games downloaded, and you have an active GamePass account, can you still play them, or are you forced to buy them? (The ones that get removed)

Got an update from usps saying my modern warfare delivery is coming today instead of tomorrow even with the storm.

Look forward to clearing snow at work all day, getting home, warming up and maybe playing a new game or at least spending a few hours deciding what I want to play.

Once they're removed from gamepass you lose the license to play them. They generally give a decent amount of notice before removal so unless it's a huge game like monster hunter you should have time to beat them unless you only play for a couple hours a week.

If you keep an eye on the thread, there are deals for Game Pass pretty often. Most recently, there was 6 months Utimate for $45 through Amazon and Best Buy, which comes out to $7.50 per month (which includes PC and XBL).

Don't worry, it'll be available as ironic DLC.

I Read that as "iconic DLC" and I think I prefer that more because nothing more iconic than a sweater wrapped around the waist with one knot that somehow never sags.

yeah having a 42GB update for Reach and no preload is a little questionable.

Best Buy deal of the day for Insignia controller battery kit. These batteries are great and are usually $10 each.

Yeah, press the start button instead.


That did nothing but deleting and reinstalling did. Weird. But holy crap if you want 800GS in 10 minutes and want to knock out the "Play ID@Xbox" quest for 300 reward points, there's your answer.

Yeah this could have come a few days earlier so I could use some of my left over bandwidth from Nov.

Also, why the hell does Life is Strange 2 need to download the entire game every time it adds a new episode?

Blair Witch also downloaded 90% of the game again today. This shit makes me mad.

NO SH*T, and I still have a long way to go...

 

I finally finished all the Crucible / Strike / Gambit stuff and now just need to do a bunch of stuff on the moon and in VO.

Yeah I cleared the new raid and got Divinity but gave up on trying to hit base 960 light (Plue Pokemon S/S released).

 

I'll log in for some Vex Offensive to hunt a Feeding Frenzy/Multi-Kill Clip roll on the pulse rifle though.

My hope is that Dawn might be easier since the Undying season was shorter due to the Shadowkeep delay. I told myself I wouldn’t do much with Dawn, but that trailer is compelling!

You only have one more week to do it, so get after it!

It's not hard to question whether or not Bungie can make a great game, but there is no question that they can make a great trailer.  This one is still one of my favorites:
