I live in a monopoly area where it's Spectrum or nothing I'm pretty sure. $49.99 a month(too much)for the first year and then it goes up to $59.99 which is a rip off. I'll call and complain and threaten to quit when that happens and see what they day.

The internet is a joke in the United States. Pretty much every other country has it beat. Faster and cheaper. It's pretty pathetic.

I live in Las Vegas and Cox is 90% of what is available. I pay $165 a month for unlimited internet. I hope they all get stranded on an island with no internet.

I might consider getting the base digital game. I’m not sure the deluxe version is worth it.

Again, if you can find the disc at Dollar Tree, $1 is better than $12.

 

I've had this on my wishlist for a long time, but looking at it now I'm not sure why. Even for $6, I think I'll pass.

I already own it on PS4.  It's a very fun 2D game much in the vein of Dragon's Crown or one of the other Vanillaware games with guns and swords.  You can also customize your hero with parts that you find on the battlefield, so there is a bit of a crafting element to it as well.  Worth $6 if you have the credit to spend.

Well one way is by visiting this new invention called a front door.

If they are busting the top out of 1T/mo, I'd guess their router has a "Tool Time" upgrade, extends a few miles past the front door, and has a cancer warning label in CA....

If any of you had still been waiting for your EA play memberships to get converted to Ultimate, mine finally changed today. I figured I would give it two weeks from the announced date of Nov 10th. I was planning to finally contact them today but I’m glad it finally went through. I’m now good through 9/5/23. I might still pick up a card at GameStop this Friday and wait a week to max out my 3 years again but it’s been pretty great knowing I haven’t spent over $7 a month on Ultimate.

Update, still enjoying Far Cry 4 as I try to get all the remaining achievements. I wonder what time the daily rewards reset. I am going to guess its around 10am EST each day. I can’t seem to find it documented anywhere.

I am a member of the xbox insiders, I am a skip ahead ring too. I haven’t had an automatic update in maybe 2 months? Is this normal? I am assuming they’ve been busy with the xbox series x/s launch but that is done. Ive only been part of the skip ahead ring for maybe 6 months?

Anyone who hasn't done the $50 for the sale, this will make it an even better deal:

 

 

 

4k video is around 7GB per hour I think.  That probably adds up if you have a full house that's watching streaming video, downloading games, etc.  It's still a somewhat high cap to reach.  I hate the idea of caps, but I do understand how there are plenty of people sharing wifi, etc. that probably abuse the system.

Realistically, me and the fiance (heyyyyyyyy it's true) probably use half of 1TB per month, I download games but not constantly, and most of our streaming is in HD. We might upgrade to 4k Netflix though so still, data caps are BS.

Look at all the fancy pants in here, bragging about internet! Where I live we don't get real internet, all I can get is cell phone internet. Got a AT&T hotspot plugged into a wifi router. I can get up to 64/11Mbps on a good day and to add to the fun I'm NAT restricted with no way to change that.

With service that poor, I'd be trying to get into the SpaceX Starlink beta if it's available in your area.

Thanks so much for posting this!  Mine hadn't converted and I'd been dreading calling them back again and getting the support runaround.  But it finally updated and I'm good until July 2023.

Mostly set up my series x that came in yesterday. Didn't get a chance to see if it upgraded my copy of Valhalla to the series x version. Was mostly downloading and transferring games but the few minutes I did use it I got kicked to the home screen a few times. 

 

I guess I have to look into selling a one x now. I have two one xs and only 2 TVs so the TV with the series x doesn't really need a one x. Especially since I use the media remote a lot and having two xboxes next to each other while using the media remote is a pain.

Anyone know what happens if you redeem a 12-month EA Play code now?  Does it immediately give 4 months GPU?

 

EDIT: Just found this is covered by the FAQ.  I might get another code from shopto.net.

 

 

 

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can redeem EA Play codes that will automatically convert and extend their Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription at a ratio based on the following table:

 

Token says… You get…
1 month of EA Play - 10 days of Ultimate
3 months of EA Play - 1 month of Ultimate
6 months of EA Play - 2 months of Ultimate
12 months of EA Play - 4 months of Ultimate

what did everyone pick up from the black friday sales?? online and in store??


I've been good for a couple of months in terms of saving up space bucks instead of buying stuff, and I don't have GamePass, so I splurged a little:

MK Aftermath
Spyro Reignited
Avengers
Star Wars Fallen Order
Outer Worlds
Battletoads
Gears 5

And about 15 or so blurays from various stores to add to my sickness.

OK, GPU deals!

 

4 months GPU for $22 - shopto.net

 

You can purchase this 12-month EA Access (EA Play) code for $22 and it will immediately convert to 4 months GPU when you redeem it.  I just did this and it worked perfectly.  GPU for $5.50/month.

If you don't like the shopto deal for some reason, Newegg has 3-month GPU for $22 with promo code 23BKFCYMB6B.  Obviously this deal isn't as good since you're only getting 3 months for the same price, but it's still much better than retail.

 

Keep in mind that your GPU subscription cannot exceed 3 years.

I think stacking was free in another region and many of us snagged it there

Ha yeah, TBH I think 99% of all the games I've gotten from GWG or PS+ were all throwaways for me. GPU though, I've had far more fill than I should heh.

Do you know if there is there a redemption limit outside of the 3 year max?

Thanks for the reminder on this. I had been putting it off but just did this and extended 4 months to get me through into next year. It literally took me 2 minutes start to finish to get it lol

Couldn’t you also get a 12 month gold subscription? My understanding is that gold subs will convert 1:1 to GPU when you start GPU... am I wrong about that?

1:3 or 3:1. Whatever, I suck at conversion, but one year Gold equals four months of Ultimate.

That ShopTo deal has been up for a few weeks now so I "think" you're good, but sooner the better just to be on the safe side.

That only works if you are not currently a GPU subscriber - I was posting deals for GPU subscribers. If you aren't, then yes, I believe it's still possible to stack up 3 years of Gold and then do the $1 conversion, which is an amazing deal.

Let me get this straight -

 

The Evil Within is $4 + $3 for Season Pass = $7.

The Evil Within Digital Bundle includes both of those and is $9.

 

Looks like another example of silly sale pricing unless I'm missing something.  I've heard people say this is a pretty good game?

"Xbox chief Phil Spencer has revealed we’ll likely see an Xbox app appear on smart TVs over the next year. “I think you’re going to see that in the next 12 months,” said Spencer, when asked about turning the Xbox into a TV app. “I don’t think anything is going to stop us from doing that.”"
