Heads up, just got a Microsoft Store e-mail with the subject "Tell us your thoughts and get a movie on us" where upon completion of a survey you get a free code for a recently released movie up to $14.99 in value. Code will be e-mailed to you at a later date.

Good looking out. Appreciate it.

I havent seen it at all, since I was away for the week when this rolled out; it was quietly taken down at some point.

I read via Xbox Insiders on Reddit that they reached the max number of participants for this wave, but plan on opening it up again in the near future.

Anyone have an opinion on Shadows of the Damned? I just got Alice for $5 after seeing how Gamestop is gouging for it, but Shadows doesn't seem to have that issue and it is looks like a stupid fun shooter style game for $5

I really enjoyed it and I paid probably $40 for it 7 or 8 years ago. Lots of crude humor and bloody combat. At the current price it is a steal.

Any thoughts on Conan for the 360? Debated about it before and it’s a dollar extra than usual. Is it any good?

I am a big Conan and hack and slash fan. I like it a lot. It’s not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but at that price I think it’s worth a play.

Looks like THQ acquired the Kingdoms of Amalur (sp?) IP. I’m hoping that increases a chance for BC, but they’ll probably just remaster and rerelease Reckoning.

Hands up in this thread if you've ever rebought a game on digital when you own the disc, NOT sold off the disc, and still haven't even played the digital copy. Bonus points if you never opened the physical copy in the first place and it's still sitting shrink wrapped.

Yup, that's me.  I rationalize it by selling the physical game on ebay.  I figure if it pays for the cost of my digital copy, I'm not really out any money.

Anyone having issues with their Xbox One X? My dash is running incredibly slow on start up and then the Xbox will shut down. I can then restart and it runs fine for a while. Hoping it’s a preview program update and not my X taking a dump.

Is XB Live down for everyone? Or is it just me? Damn, me and the kid wanted to play Overwatch.

It’s good for me. I’ve been on for the last 2 hours or so.

I am new to this. How does Mixer give you content?

It’ll show up in your ready to install list automatically.

Does anyone know if Prey got XBox One X enhanced today?

So if you go to the store there is now a Prey Digital Deluxe Edition which includes the DLC released today for a total of $40.

The Deluxe edition says XBox One X enhanced but the title seperately and the DLC does not show enhanced.

I know last year Major Nelson was talking to the devs and they hinted at the enhancement but I didn't heard them announce it today or see any news of it.


Yep. Looks like they just didn’t mention at their presser.

Has anyone used Xbox Ambassadors, the volunteers, for support? There's a thread on Reddit right now where a few people have claimed that the ambassadors have tried to phish for credit card or login info. Wanted to know if those were isolated incidents or if it's actually common since there seems to be no vetting process to become an ambassador.

I’ve been an ambassador for a year and change and find it hard to believe the info about phishing, at least through the online chat feature. There’s always the chance of a creep but the chat has controls built in to auto block personal information. I’ve had people try to post their gamer tags or other personal info and the chat automatically redacted the information. If an ambassador attempted to gain this kind of info they would be removed from the program. I’d imagine there would be other penalties (banning, suspension, etc) but don’t have any concrete details.

I have a drawer of Visa gift cards with under $1.00 left on them, it's probably almost $10 at this point and can't figure out a way to use them

You could load them onto your amazon account. If I remember correctly you can purchase gift cards of any amount to load onto your gift card balance.

Has anyone been getting achievements in Sea of Thieves? I'm still not getting them almost a week later. Beyond unacceptable

They’ve disabled achievements to help handle the server load or some such. They said they should be activated this week when the game gets it’s first patch. The cheevos you’ve earned will pop when you boot the game after it updates.
