    Noooooooooooooo, I totally forgot that when my internet got chopped off I would lose my Microsoft rewards streak! 270 days I got to. And now it's back at zero. Oh well.

    Not sure about your game pass question but how do you set the Xbox up like that as I’m signed in at at home and work but if plays at work and signs in as me It signs me out at hone even if I’m playing.

    I will ask Mrs as she set it up but I know they use different usernames.

    She will have set the bedroom Xbox as her home one with the daughter setting her home one as the living room xbox. Can do gamesharing that way so only 1 of you needs to buy a game.

    Agreed. Only game other than RDR2 where I've actually made a mental note of how much I like the visuals.

    Much prefer Sony’s state of play, short and to the point, Inside Xbox is kind of cringe.

    Just for anyone else looking into this, I extended my gold until july 2022 then applied the gamepass ultimate 1 month offer for £1. I now have gamepass ultimate till july 2022 (next payment due on 13th july 2022).

    Happy days.

    So it seems my XB1X Scorpio has an issue, certain games cause it to instantly shutdown with an overheating message despite it not even being warm. This happens even if it's been on for less than a minute and is pretty easy to replicate. It happened in an early cutscene in Borderlands 3 when in high-res mode (but not in performance) and it happens 2-3 seconds into the Devil May Cry 5 intro (thus making that game unplayable).

    Anyone else had this happen? Not sure why certain games seem to trigger it, it's almost like there's a sudden CPU or GPU spike that mistakenly triggers the protection. I'm 100% it's not a genuine overheating issue as there is no fan noise at all (and I've had the fans ramp up when playing RDR2 without any shutdowns).

    If anyone with a Scorpio could install DMC5 (it's free on Game Pass) I'd be interested to know if it is just me.

    For now I'll logged a support ticket with MS so hopefully they'll swap it out.

    There was an issue with Resident evil 0 where it would shut the xbox down instantly at certain parts, I think due to the screen resolution. I thought my Scorpio was on the way out but it turns out it was that game and they patched it eventually.

    Lovely Xbox people, has anyone bought the digital version of the very first Splinter Cell? If so, can you confirm it comes with the three extra maps - Kola Cell, Vselka Submarine and Vselka somethingelse? I flippin' bought the PS3 version and it doesn't have them. :(

    If you have Game Pass, any chance you can download Devil May Cry 5 and see if it bombs out during the intro? No worries if not, just be interested to know.
