    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

    You don't need to change region. Visit xbox.com while on "holiday" in the code region then just sign in with your normal Live account and redeem the code.




  • Sorry if a stupid question (not sure if it's the same as what's just been talked about). Cdkeys have some xbox games that are UK region. Can you just change your region on the console to UK to redeem them? Thanks

    That used to work, but now you need an IP address in the country the code is for. If only there was a way to change your location while online...

    When did that change?

    But not for the UK or has that changed? I've never been refused using UK codes or even buying from UK store (from Irish IP). But i haven't bought a single thing since game pass so maybe its changed.

    It changed when the ability to generate gift codes for games was enabled to prevent people from activating out of region keys.

    That's why you now see codes for Xbox marked with a region where as they used to be all global keys except Brazil.

    Against ToS and can result in deactivated live accounts. It's not zero risk.




  • Just FYI everyone, the Boards game awards nominations are open, you can find the forum here.

    Go in and post any games you've played on Xbox, doesn't have to be exclusive, just if you've played it and like it.




  • I’m buying an Xbox one game code online for a present for my nephew. Do I need to buy the UK or EU code ? Game is Descenders if it makes any difference.

    Buying it from Gamivo but all they can tell me is the EU ones won’t work in the UK but they didn’t say anything about Ireland one way or another

    If you are in Ireland you will need an EU region code, the UK codes can only be activated if you have a UK IP address.

    Changing region on the website or console doesn't work anymore, you need an ip address in the region the key is for to activate.

    so i need eu keys?

    Yes, UK is a separate region due to Brexit.

    What about stuff that was bought a while back from CD keys, will they still work as it's already activated?

    If it's been activated on your account it won't be removed.

    Nothing to do with brexit, its tied to currency. Has been since before brexit was even mooted.

    The game codes haven't, they were all global keys before digital game gifting was enabled. The top up codes have always been currency locked though.

    Game codes were not all global keys, some were region locked, at least they were 2/3 years ago when I worked with them. No idea how that has changed since

  • I bought an XBox wireless controller (with the share button) and a Venom charging dock with two battery packs but the battery packs don’t fit the controller - the ones on the packaging don’t have the share button so obviously it was meant for an the older controller.

    We have an older controller so the dock and batteries will still be of use.

    Can the new controllers be charged be charged on that dock if I get the proper battery packs ? Or would it need a new dock - in which case I will just get a couple of rechargeable batteries?




  • The A button on my elite series 1 has been sticking down for the past while, I had the 3 year replacement warranty in Argos that ends next week so I figured I may aswell use it. Obviously couldn't get a replacement series 1 :( so I just paid the difference and now have finally got the series 2.

    Fingers crossed this one lasts as long.

    Why did you have to pay? If it was accepted as faulty should have been repair/refund/replacement, the replacement being whatever was closest. Did they refund?




  • Well the series one was €149.99 and the series two is €189.99 so I just payed the difference, not able to replace the series one as they dont stock that any more but could of straight up gotten refunded so no hassle there.




  • There was no need for a generational split in the general chat threads, so I've renamed the Series thread to "Xbox General Chat", and this one will now be closed.

    All general chat should go into the Xbox General Chat thread.


    Thanks,

    CIAB
