Why? They've had huge "deals" before. There was a resident evil bundle a few years ago had like seven games in it for $20, and they always seem to have some super deal on complete game bundles while the standard version is near full price. It's not far fetched that they'd do something like that with this especially when it's states specifically it's INCLUDED. False Advertising right there.

You're downloading it, just can't play. This was announced, it wasn't a surprise release.

The rewards stuff was tracking okay earlier today. It registered some kills I got for Final Fantasy but later on about 5pm EST, the servers slowed to a trickle when I tried to start downloading some EA Play games. I got an achievement in UFC4 and it didn’t count towards the punchcard but it did for today’s 50 points. Maybe it didn’t count for the punchcard because it wasn’t in the list of games it pulls up. I’m going to wait to see a day or so to see if they start tracking again.

Yeah same for me. My daily achievement was for Madden 20. Was hoping for a triple play: (daily, holiday punch card and day 1 of 12 of the days of Christmas on TA. Unfortunately, the holiday punch card didn't get credited but at least the other two worked.

I got home at 7pm, Nothing in any of the new gamepass missions registered at all for me. Tried a bunch of things, nothing registered. Just tried again, nothing registered.

No idea what you're talking about.

The Resident Evil Bundle was a discount mistake. Instead of the % discount being taken off the regular price it was taken off of the discount price, essentially getting a double discount.

I’m honestly surprised people really thought the full version of RDR came for $5 TBH.

Not really. Cyber Monday just happened. This is the time of the year for really good deals. If you look at that actual link, it clearly says Red Dead Redemption 2 is included in Red Dead online. So of course one would think that Red Dead 2 is included.

Doing some digging shows that it's clearly a mistake and false advertisement but it still states that regardless. I can easily see people thinking wow great deal I'm buying right now without doing any more research.

Another thought is people thinking it's a price mistake and they are buying it now before Micro fixes it.

Mistake or not it still happened and it's why I own Any resident evil games.

Haven't had much time with it, but the new Series controllers feel nice. The extra little gripping on the triggers, the new weight and shape. It's not a giant leap forward, and like I said, barely any chance to use it yet, but it feels much better than the old controllers. Little details adding up.

I can't not use my OG Elite, though. The paddles have absolutely ruined me and I hate using anything that doesn't have them.
If they release an Elite update modeled after the Series controllers, going to be hard to pass on it.

The LOWEST Red Dead Redemption 2 itself was on Xbox is $29.99. So yeah, $5 was too good to be true.

I'm hoping they releases a Series 3 Elite with the improvements, and, you know, not botch the manufacturing process this time around like they did with the Series 2. I admit I like basically everything about the series 2 better than series 1, except for the really, REALLY dumb built in battery. Guess MS realized how stupid that was since they didn't force it on the Series controllers.

 

Like you I can't play without paddles now. The paddles on the Series 2 are smaller, so I've swapped them onto my Series 1, now I don't bump them whenever I set the controller down on uneven surfaces like my leg or a cat.

A couple of the Quests updated specifically the play 10 GP games and the Hot Shot Racing completed. Tried again with Sniper and it's still not tracking.

I didn’t even try anything that would track after I had downloading anything. I don’t know if anyone else had problems downloading games but that’s when that started was when the tracking stopped. Also had some problems opening games for about 15 minutes. I had no problem streaming videos and minimal issues playing games that accessed servers so i can only surmise there was something on their end that affected Xbox performance.
Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon. Aren’t they rolling new firmware out soon?
