Xbox Series S/X Re-stock Thread

All I want is this stinking e-mail from Microsoft

Go into your setting in your account online on MS website and enter to receive emails. I went in today and signed up for some of their promotional emails and they sent me the link to buy the Series X today. I just saw the email 5 minutes ago and was able to purchase one. The bundle game that I went with was MK11 Ultimate for $17.99 and the blue shock controller for $49.

I frustratingly can’t get the series x from the email. Everything loads up in my cart, but when I click place order I keep getting an error message about payment issues. I’ve contacted support twice over chat and once over phone and have got three different responses, none of them helpful

what link do you use for customer service? I have been looking for customer service but I always get an automated response.

the link MS emailed me is broken.

thanks.

If you’d like to try their terrible awful support, just go to Microsoft.com and click on the blue “need help” button. It starts out automated, but only to sort your request. Once it knows what you need help with it will connect you to a very unhelpful real life agent

I was able to chat and get a partial refund on the controller and game from my Microsoft bundle. Took a while but we got there in the end. Only issue is she only gave me a $14 refund instead of $15 for the game. After 30+ minutes in the chat, I wasn't going to argue over $1.

There are two really big (to me) advantages of the Series X over the One X - many more games play at 60 FPS and the load time is night and day (even compared to playing from a USB SSD on One X).
 
I think there are a few games that are exclusive to the latest generation, but I can't think of any of them right now.

I think Bright Memory is one.

 

The CPU in particular should be a huge jump. It may be difficult to notice a difference on that point if most all games are cross-gen for a while though. It is helping in the games that can do 120 FPS, though.

As this post mentions yeah the storage is the same capacity, but *way* faster.

the damn camo controller dropped another $5 but they are only able to do a price match one time per item lol

seems a bit strange to have that type of limitation

They even shoved in a headset? Man.
Also like how the games are all digital because that means no refunds.
On the bright side, no GS gift card.

Anyone able to get a refund for the digital games from Microsoft? Seems like I’m unable to request a refund for the digital game since it doesn’t give me the option anymore even though it’s only been 6 days since purchase.

i have never seen an option to refund just the digital game. the only option was to refund the xbox.

 i used the link to create a request the other day and I just received an email that they closed the ticket but there is no response whatsoever. Appears that they closed the ticket and decided not to say anything or porcess a refund lol

 

edit: looks like they closed it before sending the response. Apparently if you previously price matched the item, they can't do anything as they can only do a single refund per item and the price match counts as a refund lol

I've no idea what the change is, but my Series X always turned off my Vizio TV when I shut it down.  It stopped when I got the LG C1.  I got the Halo Series X and it works again.  Does the first time setup help getting that feature to work?  Either way, I'm glad it's back.

It should be a setting on your console and somewhere on your TV. If enabled on both, it should work:

 

This feature can be turned on and off via the TV & A/V power options settings screen. Press the Xbox button to open the guide, then go to Profile & system > Settings > General > Power mode & startup > TV & A/V power options.

 

Settings have been finnicky for me in the past too. If you also have an AV receiver it might also have options in addition to the TV/console

Will you people just stop trying to refund whatever stuff you get with your bundles and just enjoy the damn system. God, people around here are so picky. Just enjoy your brand new fucking system you paid for. That's what I did.

The mods need to do a better job of getting rid of these cheap ass gamers so the forum can go back to being a fancy lad safe space again. Yeah the bundle was a little large for my malnourished manservant to walk all the way back to my compound from the gamestop I sent him to across state lines but it was sooo worth it!

Honestly compared to the complaints over in the black Friday about "how trash" this black Friday was, this thread is a endless sea of joy.

My impatient wait for my XSX is not pretty. Eagerly refreshing and watching for movement as that box sits in the same place for a whole day really underscores what a ridiculous child I am.

Happy Holidays?

Today I got the 3rd email from Mircrosoft & My full refund back for the digital game I didn't want in that list of games we're required to add to the bundle to buy the Xbox Series X console.

3rd email?

1st one is the confirmation email they send you after filling out the form with your service request number.

2nd one is the Refund Request email with your service request number & Automated "Thanks for contacting Microsoft Support for Xbox", etc.

3rd one is the "We refunded you" email confirming I'll be getting the full refund back on the digital game. (As the funds is back in my acc. already).
