I just had ten quid go out of my bank for one month’s sub. How do I get the cheapo deal?

Not interested in Discord or whatnot, just want GP Ultimate on the cheap.

if you are already subscribed for gamepass ultimate, you cant.

Its an offer for people signing up, and it converts all existing live and game pass to ultimate when you switch over to it. So people were buying three years of live or game pass, whichever was cheapest and then converting over.

Rage 2 seems pretty shite.  

 

 

Seems terrible. They removed everything I loved about Rage and introduced new features no one asked for. I simply don't get how people can kill off beloved franchises this way.

Thought I'd give Life is Strange a go seeing as it's on there and I haven't got much else to play at the moment. Does it get better as it goes on? All I've got so far is a weak and stupid protagonist, unlikable characters, slow controls and some arbitrary, try-hard rewind time gimmick.

I'd actually be really surprised if someone hated episode 1 that much but enjoyed the rest of it. Episode 1 isn't the best episode but the quality gap isn't huge or anything. I'd probably move onto something else if it did nothing for you.

Is the game pass £1 for lifetime of your XBL deal gone? I can only see the 3 months for £1 deal on my dash. Finally got round to stacking some XBL and now I can’t see the deal!!


Any dedicated links I can use?

 

i game share with my mate, so can access game pass stuff but was gonna do it right...

I can’t promise it still works today, but it did work on Tuesday for me. I chose the 3 months/£1 offer and an extra dialog popped up saying it would be applied to the rest of your Live subscription.

That's the one. First stock up on Live, up to the maximum of three years, THEN buy the 3 months ultimate for £1.

Thanks all. Successfully stacked XBL until August 2022 for £75 and kicked in the game pass ultimate upgrade for £1! Amazing.  I’m planning to buy Scarlett day one anyway so don’t feel like I’ve ripped anyone off, just enjoying the Microsoft service this gen.

Origin also gave me my free month of Origin Access Basic, which I can't remember what was for, but it was mentioned in here.

 

Boy the Origin App is terrible for managing a service like this though, massive chunks of each game page with an upsell to Premium that you have to scroll past to Add to Library, links that say "check out the games available" take you to a signup page/upsell page rather than a list of games. Typical EA

Why should you feel like you've ripped anyone off?!  :) You just spent £75 with MS and bought into the Xbox service for nearly three years..... Sure MS will be happy as that is exactly what they want people to do.... Hence the offers. They ain't stupid. :)

Another way to get a cheap sub if you are already on XGPU

 

 

Thanks, worked a treat. 6 months for 500 vip points. Almost back up to 3 years ahead now.

Someone briefly explained it in the Xbox One thread, but what's the best way of doing the cheap deal?

 

I've never signed up to GamePass, and my Live is due for renewal in March.

Buy 3 years worth of Gold - there's bound to be some decent deals out there at the minute - then pay the £1 upgrade to convert the Gold to Gamepass Ultimate. You'll be set until December 2022.

Ah ok. So I'm still paying full price for 3 years of gold, just getting GamePass for £1?

Yeah. It's a relatively small price to pay for what you're getting, though.

Minit is a good shout if you're looking for something a bit different but also relatively easy to complete - it only took me about 90 minutes but it surprised me how well implemented the central mechanic of dying every 60 seconds was.

The XBOX site is so terrible. Where am I supposed to go on a desktop browser to claim the free month of EA Access and Discord Nitro thing?  I tried it through the mobile app, but I couldn't find a way to get codes for them.
