I'd love to know if yours works well. I have the 9x, and I get a few minutes of good sound, and then all hell goes loose and its static and cutting out. My Xbox is in the same room as two routers (one for ATT and one for my mesh system) so the best I can figure, I am getting tons of interference.

According to people on Rtings, you are not alone in your issues. That and having the wired Cloud Alpha already is why I ended up passing.

Has anyone on here ever won one of the free games TA gives away every day?


I won Nine Witches: Family Disruption a while ago. Pretty sure I've seen some of the regulars pop up as winners.

I'll send a code for a digital copy of Edge of Tomorrow (Live, Die, Repeat) to the first person to like this post. Second person to like it will get a screen pass.

The report from the first phase of the UK investigation into the Microsoft buyout of Activision is pretty wild.  It basically echoes Jim Ryan’s “inadequate” comment.  PlayStation would be dead because consumers would all switch to Xbox because of COD only being on Xbox or exclusive features in COD.  Microsoft would have a monopoly on every genre of game except for sports.  Nintendo is specifically ignored because they’re a fitness gaming company that doesn’t compete with Sony or Microsoft.   I’m paraphrasing but large sections of the findings read like they were hand written by Sony.

I just noticed that you can earn 300 additional Microsoft Rewards points a day by searching on Microsoft Edge.

 

Luckily, clicking countless photos of famous actors, actresses, rappers and singers to earn points is my favorite game to play on Xbox.  :shock:

I'm more surprised someone on here only recently discovered this. It's been a thing longer than XBox Rewards program in itself.

Probably because most people don't get that.

300 additional points by using Edge? On top of the 150 for desktop searches, 100 for mobile, and 20 for Edge?

Since when have government bureaucrats shown any ability to actually understand what is actually happening in the world?

I mean, if MS having exclusive titles is reason to stop this merger, Sony needs to be broken up 1920’s antitrust style too.

Apparently so.  I was using the older version of the browser on Xbox when I found it.  And I had already completed the 150 desktop and 100 mobile.

Then I am reading the wrong promotion. I was merely thinking the whole search Bing on like normally kinda thing.

Decent deal for MW2. I hadn’t played COD since the original MW2, and thought the beta was fun. Anyone else getting this?

Over here it's 90 for Desktop, 60 for mobile and 12 for Edge. lol Also we don't have the 2000 + 500 bonus over here either.

However we can get 3 Months of Gold (which converts to 50 Days of GPU) for 15k Reward Points instead of paying... was it 21k in the US?

I believe this was released at the start of last month and that phase 2 is in progress.

Here's an opinion piece on the UK being the most likely to kill the deal:

I think that earning the additional 300 points a day is a special thing for this month only from what I can tell.  But, yes, I am fully aware of how to earn points daily by doing searches.  Been doing it for years.  :roll:

Yeah I bought the regular version for $57 from GMG last night. Code was sent immediately and redeemed fine. Hoping the campaign is good along with multiplayer!

If you log into the Rewards section on desktop, Bing Rewards/Cashback is now called Microsoft Cashback. After linking a credit card, if you switch from online orders to in-store offers, a ton of local restaurants showed up. I think it sources it by your zip code. All of them give up to 6% cashback, which is pretty high if you'd be going there anyway. Paired with a rewards card through a bank and it's a pretty sweet perk.

 

I went to one such restaurant on Tuesday, the transaction hasn't posted yet but will report back if it does.

 

Best Xbox controller with the d pad in a comfortable position?

8BitDo Pro 2 Wired Controller for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One & Windows 10 https://a.co/d/9bnzFK7

I'm slightly tempted to get this one for my PC. I wish the 8bitdo wireless controller designed for xcloud worked with Windows natively, it's so compact that it would be great to have for travel.

If you have an Amex card, there is an offer for $50 off $100 spent at Dell and a promo code for $10 off.  I got $115 in Xbox gift cards for $55.  It took a few days for the credit to apply, but it worked.  Offer is up until tomorrow.

There is also $50 back on a year of HBO Max.
