I has to unsubscribe to the insider thing as it meant I had to update my console every other day which took 15 minutes every bloody time.
I wouldn't have minded if it meant a funky new OS 3 times a week but most of the time strawberry float all changed after I'd downloaded and installed a 350mb file that then had to spend ages unpacking and just laughing at me in my impotent rage!

strawberry float you insider program, strawberry float you right in a wrong place like the back of the knee or something!

How do you check to see if you have been unknowingly drafted in to it? Where would you “opt out”?

I wonder if that’s why my quick resume often does not resume (because background updates have been installed).

There's an app that you download and it has all the options in that.
The xbox insider hub.

A better month. I want to play Maid of Sker - a good one for Hallowe’en! I’ve already played Slayaway - it’s kind of fun, but gets a bit trial-and-error late on. It’ll be good to have Sphinx on hand without having to dig out the disc.

Seeing as Pro alone costs more than Game Pass Ultimate... what do you reckon?

I will probably play a bit of Slayaway Camp for Haloween. Maid of Sker looks.... interesting, but it also looks like its heavy on stealth, and i have set myself a rule not to play games of that type because i simply never enjoy them (Plague Tale was the one exception).

My OS has updated again. Lots more rounded corners. I assume this is the version that Xbox Series will ship with.

Excellent info thank you so much for sharing but I am wondering can it is possible to use Chat Apps like this OG WhatsApp with the Xbox Android version.

MS is sharing some digital revenue with GameStop:

Wonder if GAME has been offered this too?

Ah!

jawa, on 9 October, wrote:Microsoft has formed a "strategic partnership" with GameStop in the US.

GameStop's backend will now be powered by Dynamics 365 - Microsoft's cloud-based tech - and store reps will be equipped with Microsoft Surface devices. Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams will also be rolled out to more than 30,000 store associates.

On the Xbox front, GameStop is expanding its Xbox family of product offerings to include Xbox All Access - providing players with an Xbox console and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, with no upfront cost.

Source: PureXbox

Interesting move... I wonder if GameStop will promote Xbox above other brands in their stores?


It feels like Microsoft are really going all-out on this generation.
