I assume we're supposed to know whose face it is that they've photoshopped into the games. Any idea?

Played a bit of Observer last night. VERY much my kind of thing.

Speaking on Microsoft's FY19 Q1 earnings call, the firm discussed its increased cross-platform presence with the Xbox brand. Now, following the success of Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One's Netflix-style subscription service for games, Nadella announced plans to expand to PC.

It will be account specific, but MS are offering 3 months for £7.99 on the dashboard. Great if you can get it. More importantly though, if you nip off to your Microsoft account you can turn off renew at end of subscription and it lets you rinse and repeat as many times as you like.

I can't see this anywhere so I assume I'm not eligible for some reason or do I need to search for it somehow?

I don't think that's the case, happy to be proved wrong though.

From experience you usually get 2 attempts at the auto renewal bonus and then you'll have to wait a few months before redeeming more codes/offers to get 2 more bonus months again

I have this offer on my dash, just trying to decide if I really need to extend past Feb 2020. :lol:

You could certainly do the 1 month for £3 offer over and over again. I did it! Got 9 months. Then on Wednesday I got two lots of 3 months for £7.99, but I did not try anymore after that.

No the auto renewal bonus is +1 month on top of whatever you're redeeming (1, 3, 6 month Gold, 1, 3, 6 month Game Pass etc). The actual deals stack up until you hit the cap. I've never done that though because my time on Xbox is on and off so not worth it for me. I think MHTL has his capped nearly all of the time so he will be able to say what the max amount of months you can be subscribed for.

I think the +1 month only applies for Xbox Live, I don't think you get it for Game Pass.

Sheltered and OlliOlli 2 are great. I never got round to buying Sniper Elite 4, so glad to see that there.

Getting to shoot Hitler in the ghoulies is always fun so I'll give Sniper Elite 4 a go.

A bit meh, but Grip looks really decent, will definitely be giving that a whirl.

I picked up 3 months for £8 thanks to the offer. Downloaded Forza Horizon 4, that should keep me going for a bit.

Are there any other big MS releases due over the next few months?

No big releases until Crackdown in Feb but Ashen is due out before the end of the year and will launch on Game Pass -

Ori is a 2019 game.

Below I think still has a 2018 release date, but I'll believe that when I see it.

Cheers. Hopefully I pick up another Game Pass offer next year to try Crackdown/Ori out.
