    I think you can only do that once but why don't you have a crack and let us know if it works :)

    I'm pretty sure you can do it multiple times as long as you don't have a current gamepass subscription

    Just picked up a Series X yesterday. Neat looking console very pleased with the small footprint when stood up next to the TV and the quiet footprint as far as noise goes. Load times and overall responsiveness on my 4K 120hz TV is fantastic. Can't believe they weren't including SSDs with consoles sooner!

    As with seemingly everything I buy, I do have an issue with the controller.
    When I press the A button occasionally it will make the clicking noise/feel that you expect when the button is depressed, and yet the button will not register unless you press down harder. The other buttons will always register on the lightest of clicks.
    Sometimes when holding the A button down it will momentarily stop registering the button press if you don't keep pressure firm. The A button is pretty much the most used button so this is frustrating!

    Anyone else having issues with their included controller? Apparently I'm not the only one, and looks like I'll need to pay to post it off to Microsoft to look at, be without it for who knows how long, and potentially get a refurbished controller back. Console kiddies really do get treated like trash...imagine if a brand new mechanical keyboard did this :Paranoid:

    Yea that much is evident haha just seeing if anyone else had any similar experiences.
    Luckily the retailer was great and had one new controller left in stock so swapped it on the spot today. I'll see how it goes!

    Keen to check out Forza Horizon 4. Any good platforming games people can recommend that are included in the games pass? Already downloaded the two Ori games which sound fantastic but I'll be keen to try others.

    Anyone else given flight simulator a go...
    Had it downloading in the background today and gave it a try after work.. Quick zoom around the pyramids.. Just wow.
    Had a bit of a giggle as my daughter was flying around and kept running into things.

    Big thumbs up, no doubt the novelty will wear off.. But it's just breathtaking.

    Yeah I flew around where I used to live years ago and then where I live now and it's very accurate. I did some aerobatics with the extra too. I crashed allot for shits and giggles with the bigger passenger planes as it got boring

    Well the preorder is up for a while, isn't selling out. So looks like there is plenty of time for people to buy it if they want it.
