For some reason they’ve taken all of the Store functionality out of the app. It’s very annoying. You can redeem codes on the website, though.

Brilliant, that worked. Thanks very much. Thought that must be on the site somewhere but couldn’t find it!

strawberry floatin hell, Full Spectrum Warrior. That takes me back to my CEX days.

We had so many copies.

So many.

Just so many.

For what it’s worth, Full Spectrum Warrior still holds up. One of my fave OG Xbox games in BC.

If you can’t wait until the 1st, I would suggest heading down to CEX. A reliable source tells me they may be in possession of many copies.

CEX will still give you 10p for a copy of Full Spectrum Warrior, which means they're lot rarer than, say, old copies of FIFA.

Possibly, if not my source tells me you should be able to get a copy of FIFA 12 :datass:

Yeah the line up isn't impressive. Lego game is cool, just I don't have urge to play it again.

Will try Xbox one games at least

Microsoft phasing out Xbox party chat P2P voice connections to beef up security

Xbox engineer Bill Ridmann took to the Xbox One subreddit (thanks, PureXbox) to respond to a user who issued a warning to the new wave of Rainbow Six Siege Xbox players sparked by the competitive multiplayer shooter's arrival on Game Pass.

"With Rainbow Six Siege now on GamePass, here's a reminder to not accept random party invites!" redditor KinoTheMystic wrote.

"Players can DDOS your network through this using your IP address if you join. Received an invite last night from an enemy player and had to tell my friend not to accept it."

This post sparked a reply from Ridmann, who confirmed P2P voice connections for party chat will be completely phased out in favour of making parties server based. This means players won't make direct connections to other party members, and therefore cannot see each other's IP address.

"Hey all, we know this is a problem - we are actually phasing out P2P voice connections for party chat completely which we've been working on quite a bit in the background to stop this very problem," Ridmann said.

"We've been ramping up a larger percentage of parties to be completely server based week over week (so you don't make direct connections to other party members so they can not see your IP) and soon should have no more P2P based parties."

Ridmann added it has always been the case that if you use the mobile app to join a party, the party becomes server based and your phone's IP is never exposed to others.

This is very much good news for Xbox users, and it comes amid the launch of the Xbox Series X and S.

That is seriously great news for those of us who prefer downloads, and anyone buying the Series S. A bit of competition for CDKeys should lead to some lower prices.

Is there any way to adjust microphone input level on Xbox One?

I've seen that there should be an "Audio" menu under Settings on the quick bar, but I don't have that even with my headset plugged in. Twitch app recognises the microphone headset though.

It looks like 1 vs 100 could be returning to Xbox :toot: .

I really enjoyed this on the 360; it was the only online game that I played on the system, courtesy of a free Xbox Gold trial :-) .

I'm not touching that. A crack addiction would have been less impactful on day to day living than Championship Manager was in the mid-late 90's.
