    Also Plex. My entire set up is to be girlfriend proof. Plex is very simple for her to use across all devices. I liked it enough to buy the permanent Plex pass. Has an app for my Xbox and built into the TV.

    ive always been a kodi guy.

    been doing a bit of research on plex. it does look pretty good. Ill give it a crack.

    worth getting the paid version? do you have to pay regardless for xbone app?

    You used to need the plex pass for the xbox app but I think its free these days. I think the mobile app might cost money if you don't have a plexpass.

    Mobile apps are free. I think all plex apps are now free, they just try to make money from the plex pass.

    MS will offer refunds for digital games soon (IIRC the feature is still being tested) on the same lines as steam....so if you buy a game digitally you can refund it within 2 hours of game time or 14 days.

    MS really are coming out swinging with the hardware and policy side at the moment, game pass looks like it could be really good as well.

    Now they have to show up at E3 and show off a heap of new games. It's the only thing left that they need.

    I think refunds on digital goods is a good step in the right direction.

    It is but their terms are stricter than steam.

    maybe, but at least they're still offering it....apparently it's still better than PSN's refund where the download time counts so you can't even try it before you even refund it.

    Hi all.
    Well my son has the One S and its backwards compatible.
    He also has his 360 with a heap of Lego Dimensions.

    My question is even if he buys the Lego dimensions one starter pack can it use all the extra Lego dimension figures he bought for the 360 dimensions?

    I don't want to go buying everyone again. At the moment both 360 and one are connected to the same TV so no big problem at the moment but he is already talking about getting the starter pack for the One S.

    according to this no

    however that's the pad, the figs probably work and will have made for XXX on the packaging I'd imagine - do you have old packaging?

    Yes, you only need the XB1 starter pack for the software and base. The figures are platform independent and can be used on both.
