Thanks for the heads-up on this. I had a £20 voucher left over from Christmas, so that paid for most of it. And as a bonus, weirdly, when I entered the second code it gave me the option of the extra month for turning on continuous billing (which had already been on), so I’ve got 7 months out of the deal.

Paid up to April 2022 now. Nice.

Jesus :fp:

The service is quickly getting quite bad when you consider how cheap a lot of the games are.

Did anyone manage to get PSO2 working?

Not sure what that proves. The best game on that list is probably Yakuza 0 which goes for almost nothing.

Out of interest how many of those do you think you'll play through?

Not sure what you mean by PSO2, the game was never on Game Pass, it was just some free cosmetics.

And the service is brilliant.

It's on the US store and someone posted a way to get it working.

Glad you're enjoying it but other than a few indie games there isn't a great deal I'm interested in, at least not to justify the monthly cost over just picking my own games in the sale.

I can assure you, PSO2 is not on Game Pass in any region.

EDIT - It's free to play. No subscription required.

You can play PSO2 by changing your region to US, rebooting your console then downloading the open beta from the Insider section. The full game releases this spring on XB1/Win10 in North America only (I think).
