Yeah, that pretty much mirrors my experience so far. The purchase history through 360 is a dead link, seems the website was taken down in 2018.

 

I guess my best bet is to send photos as proof of ownership on 360 and um, not proof of ownership on XB1 and see if they can do any behind the scenes magic. 

 

Thanks for the info though !

This happens to me with my Xbox series X and CX now and then.  Just do a reset console on the Xbox and it fixes it everytime. 

 

Thanks both, although I did try both to no avail.  I messed about with the display overides and it eventually all went back to normal thankfully.

Well the Xbox chat guy was as bamboozled as I was. He sent me a link to connect to a specialist which goes here

We've taken down the support experience you were looking for, but there are many more ways to get help. Try one of these support sites for issues with Microsoft products.

I had the same thing.

 

I had a 360 with loads of dlc. Stopped playing Xbox for a few years then bought a one X. All my bought games were gone such as Street fighter etc. Went through customers support who basically called me liar.

That’s terrible! MS need to sort that out. It’s like they’ve come round your house and nicked your stuff.

Are these in stock anywhere yet? Cousin is desperate for an X after playing Flight Simulator.

 

I picked one up last week by using https://www.stockcheckers.co.uk/ and seem to be getting at least one or two email notifications a day at the moment (probably should turn it off now!) - so they are slowly becoming available. Certainly easier to buy than PS5s at the moment I think.

Has there been much in the way of updates on the next batch of FPS boost games coming along? I'm currently thoroughly enjoying the old Gears of War games again, but it really would be a treat to have the first lot in 60fps! But any news on that front would be fab I guess.

I'm assuming this is only for Bluetooth connections, as it doesn't appear to work using the dongle on the PC.

It does read like it's a Bluetooth thing https://www.vg247.com/xbox-controller-double-tap-feature. Older, non-Series pads will be able to do it soon, but it has to be the BT ones (e.g., the One S and One X pads).

 

Unfortunate that MS fluffed the pad stuff at the beginning of last gen a bit. I wonder if the reduced latency thing will make all of the BT-based pads better for xCloud, too. I hadn't thought of that before.

Have you tried it? How is it?

 

Kept hitching. No hud. Gigantic maps. Didn't know what I was doing and ran around for ages seeing nobody. Got killed from god knows where. Uninstalled. 

 

It's a game you need teamwork and communication apparently. Quite hardcore. 

 

Could be brilliant but I'm not willing to find out. BF is around the corner.

My experience also. No tutorial as far as I could see either and horrible menus. Uninstalled.

Sad as it is, I honestly think the best thing about the new consoles is the ability to download something nd it just does the thing in silence. As much as I love my PC, my slow internet means I usually download stuff at night, and by christ its a noisy fucker. In comparison, there’s no such issues with the Series X.

Microsoft are adding a bunch of labels (still in testing) to help emphasize good accessibility features (e.g., a subtitle label for the ability to customize size, etc.).

 

Apart from being excellent, I hope this makes some devs do better with tiny text and other issues.

yeah, it made "your machine" the end IP for what ever other people were doing, so any illicit stuff others were doing could be linked to your IP!

I'm sure that there must be a whole load of criteria that has to be met to get games passed by MS (achievements being one that springs to mind). Why they don't add sensible txt sizes being one of them is beyond me. Fingers crossed that the labels that you mention do just that as there are far too many games that come out with poor accessibility, The Ascent being the latest one that I came across.
