  • Almost proving the point that Activision messed this up, this is the actual link to the Series X version

    Lol, thanks. The publishers that choose to go down this route are once again proving that they don't deserve my money.

    Listening to a few gaming podcasts over the last week, and it seems like the somewhat laughed at 'smart delivery' that xbox offers is something that Sony are having a hard time managing. Numerous reports of people downloading the last gen version of games, with no clear way on how to get the upgrade, or worse still, two copies of the same game downloading, one PS4 version and one PS5.
    I know they'll get it sorted eventually, but its a fair inconvenience. Transferring save files is apparently even more of a faff.




  • The rubber grip is starting to peel on my gen 1 Elite controller. I think it is a common problem as I remember reading about it on here before.

    Yes, happens them all eventually. I am soft on my controllers and I got 2 years from my series 1 before it started to peel. You can buy after market ones on Amazon and just replace them. They are ok and do work but I just decided to buy the series 2. My series 1 is still 100%, its a kinda spare now. I will say I had to replace the shoulder buttons on the series 1 though on mine and my brothers series 1. Another common issue and one that still exists on the series 2 which is hard to believe.

    Mine must be over 2 years old as well so got use out of it. But I didn't use it all the time it was dependent on the game. I haven't used the Series X controller since I bought it so the extra use must have caused it to peel.

    I left mine on a windowcill on a sunny day and it must have softened the glue as it peeled back that evening, I was gutted as its a gen1 version that hasn't missed a beat. superglue is holding it at the moment but the shape was never quite right again.




  • You can get rubber sleeves that go over the controller cheap enough on wish,I got a couple after the glue job didnt feel right,only a couple of euro but looked and felt great!




  • Going back through "the pile". Fair few in there I gave up on to get back to.

    Ghost Recon - Beautiful but a bit samey

    Gears 3 - Couldn't get on with it

    Bioshock 2 - Loved it dunno why I stopped playing

    Orange Box - Haven't even started Half Life 2 yet!

    Dishonoured - Played about half of it

    Fallout 3 - Gave up after a day or two

    Rainbow 6 Siege - Barely played it

    Splinter Cell Blacklist- Halfway through, struggling. I love Conviction and they changed the controls for some unknown reason. I miss the old Sam.

    Busy winter ahead though.




  • I take it gaming is not for you. :p

    Those games are very similar ... i.e FPS ?
    Time for a change ?

    Your not using it properly if the grips don’t start to fall off : ). Have mine 5 years and I’ve the grips superglued back on. Had to trim the rubber back with a Stanly knife. It’s the only problem I’ve had with the Controller.

    Yep wasn't using it enough. I used to just use it for select games and since I got my Series X I haven't used that bundled controller once and just played with the Elite controller and now it's peeling.

    Theyre just the ones I haven't played all of. The pile to get back to. The played pile is bigger.

    Ive a Switch aswell so BOTW and a few other have taken up a lot of 2020.

    Might give the Witcher a go.




  • Currently replaying Watch Dogs 2. I bought it on Xbox and was pissed they didn't make a Xbox One X enhanced version so I bought and finished it on PC a while back. Going through my games and seen this and said I may as well play it and I'm glad I did as it is brilliant. Long term users of this forum may remember me saying many times that this is the worst looking game on Xbox, well I don't know if the better CPU in the Series X is helping but the game looks decent obviously not as good as a One X enhanced or even a Series X enhanced but no where near as bad as I remember previously.




  • Xbox S X + headphones connected to the controller..how do I adjust volume ? Monitor volume controls don't seem to do anything. Can't find an enabled vol control in Xbox settings ...

    Settings > audio.

    Can also use voice commands if they are enabled, I think.

    Press the guide button and you will see a sound icon at the bottom. Click it with the A button and change how loud or quiet you want.




  • Will try that with and with a different set of headphones when I get a chance to get some game time!




  • Thinking ... I wish I could use the S X as a PC , love to see how well it would handle my work tasks. Also it's so cool looking and quiet ! MS designers to be congratulated here.

  • Hmmm I should use the S X thread but that's overloaded with pre order chat. Wondering if we can have a general Series s/X thread and a pre order thread ????

    Have been thinking of doing a clean up for a while, will sort it tomorrow.

    €35.89 on Eneba, you need to go on holiday to Argentina for redemption though.

    I bough it off cd keys , went for the world wide option. Yet it’s telling me The code is for the wrong region when I enter it. Any ideas ?

    did you select this planet as your desired world? :P


    get on to cdkeys, probably a region code sent by mistake.

    Email them and get refunded.

    Happened to me with Control. As it is marked as WW you don't know what country to go on holiday in to redeem.

    Btw Eneba also have Dirt 5 for €16 for Argentinian travellers.

    I’ve sent them an email. I’m sorry I didn’t just buy it off the store now for the sake of 7euro lol

    To be honest I don’t want to be changing region or anything , just want to enter the code and play. I taught buying the ww code would be ok
