A very mediocre month, but add that with Game Pass, then its a different story.


#84

finished gears 4 :grin: ! getting gamepass for R5 last month was definately worth it


#85

Just beware that if you don’t cancel it then you’ll be charged the full amount the next month.


#86

i always disable auto renew immediately, its a habit whenever i buy gold vouchers also


#87

Okay awesome. Hehe we are going to get some nice first party exclusives in the future for cheap using this method. It’s great! :smiley:


#88

i still have the gamepass voucher that came with the xbonex which i’ll use in march to check out sea of thieves


#89

I also still have it. :grinning:

So, some Xbox One X enhanced gaming news: Overwatch has been patched to run on the X at 4K and Rocket League will get an update later this year,

Also, here is a promotional video for a new Xbox Play Anywhere title

For those that don’t know, these guys are South African.

so i used the £5 xbox store credit microsoft gave me (for meeting decembers gamepass goals, which i clearly didnt) to buy rory mcllroy pga tour for £3.75 hopefully its not really as bad as some people made it out to be.


#93

Gamepass goals? What’s that?


#94

In the uk and US there are live gold and gamepass goals that you have to reach every month, eg play 10 hours online, get 20 achievements or play a certain game thats in gamepass and get achievements for that title etc.

if you reach the monthly goals you receive a prize, be it a free game (normally a shitty one) a free month of live gold or store credit normally.

My 360 has always been set to Uk Region because i signed up for live in 2007 before we had xbox live locally available back then so i just kept it like that all the years since there’s way more games available on the uk store than the SA store (only crux is i have to use a vpn on the 360)

so even though my xbox one is set to SA and i dont use a vpn on there, MS still registers all my achievements and stuff i get on it as if i am in the Uk (cause my 360 is still set to that region and address) and thus i received the gamepass goals reward for last month.

Thanks, will go have a look. It’s a shame that we don’t have it!


#97

It looks like it’s available for South Africans too! Not sure. It does come up on the ZA website.


#98

i’ll look into it, as i dont know anyone that received any free stuff yet


#99

its a pity Forza horizon 2 isnt getting a 4k upgrade cause horizon 3 is simply stunning, i definately think the horizon titles pushes the xbox harder than the vanilla Forza motorsport titles even with their 30 fps cap compared to the 60 in motorsport


#100

my halo 5 download has started 98 gigs on a 4 meg line :cry::sob:

I can however tell you it’s worth it. As with all games that’s getting the 4K X treatment, it just looks and plays brilliantly now.
