Wait, you guys don’t give your tech funny or silly names? Each of our devices are named for some sort of AI/droid companion from sci-fi, movies, books, etc. My phone has been nicknamed Cortana since before MS even did phones or the digital assistant or made the character go batshit insane.

Granted I have a 500gb ssd hooked up for non-Series games, but I haven't really had storage problems. No Halo, Gears, or CoD though.


That’s good to hear. So far it’ll probably be MCC, Sea of Thieves, and Destiny as big ones, maybe Gears 5 but haven’t played it in a while. Hoping we have some leftover space. We do have an external for the extras, just might have to move things from time to time.

I really want to get that expansion memory. But still hoping for a price drop. Storage management of Series X games is getting harder (even considering the ones that play off of regular hard drives).


Ugh don’t tell me that. We have a series S coming for pick up this Friday! I think it’ll be ok though. Gonna make it the one the wifey uses most, and she only plays like 2-3 games at a time. I’ll keep my One X hooked up with the big external for all my Game Pass exploring.

Not really looking for game recommendations so much as “stuff” to buy from them. I’ll inevitability buy some games, but I have too much credit to just focus on that. Maybe a good headset or hard drive, etc.


I have a total of $566 expiring on different days, but all between April 12-26. I’ll have to look into the preorder and cancel option. Can anybody confirm this works and with consistency?

It would be a great loophole if that worked, but I’m pretty sure you can’t do that


Since you’re looking for “stuff” to get and not just games, why not look for the expansion memory for the series X/S? Would take a chunk of credit but be a good thing to hold on to for when you do get the system in the future.

Just adding my two cents to the Top 10 issues. Activated, got two in MCC, no dice. My fiancé, though, got one on Sea of Thieves, and showed a check *before* I activated the card for her, so once I did that she immediately got 500 points. So that game might work for those who have it (or GP).
Also, been seeing the Xbox Twitter account RT a bunch of things from Outriders about server issues going back and forth, so definitely a tough weekend. Haven’t gotten a chance to start it yet but might wait a few more days so that all gets hammered out first.
