    think the drive is paired with the motherboard so you have to replace both.

    Has anyone noticed their console noise levels increase over time? My day one scorpio edition sounds so loud when gaming now, louder than my PS4 Pro used to be when under load, it used to be whisper quiet when first purchased, and it seems to be red hot, all the talk about the Hovis method I could probably toast bread on it now :D

    Both my previous PS4 did I opened up my slim not long ago and found lots of dust inside , blasted it with compressed air and gave it a clean seemed to work wonders.

    Well it would seem my Scorpio is on its way out again for about the 5th time. When I boot it up the screen is completely blank.

    See the other thread, they're all doing it, appears to be a server-side change MS have done as there hasn't been a software update that I could see when mine briefly let me access the settings.

    I am getting a blank dash as well. Only way to get it back is by removing the ethernet cord when it's off.

    How annoying, I’ve just wiped mine thinking it was failing! I should have checked live service status first but the black screen and partial controller input made it look like a local problem.

    I had this when my unit was breaking.

    You can navigate your games if you just want to play by pressing the guide button which then brings up the side bar to show recent games, and you can then click those to play your games or press games and apps to choose something else

    Anyone recommend any good Xbox one elite controller bumper replacement kits??

    Mine has broken off completely, seems it’s an inherent issue and rather than forking out another £100 if I can fix, I’d rather do that.

    I’ve seen a few on amazon but reviews aren’t great. Ebay same as well but wanted to know if anyone has done it and which kit they used??

    Cheers

    Xbox one x working now, worried earlier thought it was bricked , black screen etc . Looked at Microsoft’s service update so knew it wasn’t just mine.

    Is there an ideal time to renew live gold membership.

    Mine expires in about 2 weeks, thinking the longer I leave it, an offer might pop up on the dash. What's your experience of this?

    Not sure anything usually pops up.

    I think the best plan is to pick up deals in Black Friday deals etc and store up cards.

    Should have done that at the time, I will let it run down to about a week left anyway, might get something on the dash.

    I have a game pass £1 for 1 month offer on my dash, if I was to get that, can I stack a 12month game pass on top as well?

    Anyone noticed any deals around for Xbox One X, they seem quite expensive at the moment, sure they were a bit cheaper before christmas? :)

    Son has saved his pocket/birthday/christmas money for a year and I said I would help towards one, going to need to buy one soon. :p

    Pretty cool that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is on Game Pass already. Must have been a sales flop. Hitman 2 might be on it in a few months as I don’t think that sold very well, either.
