    Phone MS and get them to look at your order, they'll probably just read from a script at first about a certain number of payment retries but ask them to actually go into your account and check the order.

    It still states my delivery is expected for the 10th there when I've checked, so I am just leaving it be. They were spot on with getting my console to me on launch last time. :)

    will check with them after lunch see what the deal is.

    I've had all the emails from them about payment etc so hopefully should be ok.

    Just had an email from GAME with a one time link to pre-order the Xbox Series X All Access Deal again, as i tried on release day, done all the application and Games website fell over lol.. had a couple of emails since it happened to say they would sort out a method for people to order again.

    So about 30mins ago an email popped in with the link, went through seamlessly, had emails from Game now confirming my pre-order and home delivery etc.. will be surprised if i get it on the 10th but you never know :)

    I had the email from paypal last night to confirm that the funds had cleared, and the order can no longer be cancelled on the MS site.

    I wonder if Microsoft allowed a few consoles to go out early just to spoil the PS5 reviews that have come out today? :D
    It seems odd that we have a console release with no system seller games........am looking forward to seeing what the multiplatforms bring to the table.

    Just seen this on the PS5 thread - am surprised to see the XsX loading games up faster. Is this because of the velocity architecture? Better compression and decompression hardware? Something else?

    Digging a bit more, it might be because of the CPU. None of these games will be using the new hardware so it has to be done the old way. MS give Xbox games the full power of the CPU (3.8GHz), Sony is supposedly keeping the clocks the same as the PS4 (Pro) (2.1? GHz) for BC so it might mean slower decompression.

    Got to admit, watching the PS5 reviews today, Miles Morales and the Dual Sense controller are certainly things to be jealous of.

    Looking forward to seeing some truly next gen Xbox stuff.

    Not interested in Miles Morales at all (never really understood the popularity of the Spiderman games), but the Dual Sense looks fun.......however, I have real concerns about the durability - it's another moving part that has the potential to fail. A bit like the Xbox Pro controllers, every time you add in complexity or moving parts you are building in failure points, and the fact that the dual sense is built to put pressure against the user can only make that worse.
    I am a big fan of force feedback though (ever since the MS force Pro joystiocks back in the 1990's), so will enjoy it whilst I can.

    Not sure some have mentioned the controller never stops vibrating in Spider-Man and can be distracting.

    I don’t mind a bit of rumbling but too much and it gets annoying real quick.

    Always 1440p120 for the games that support it. It auto swaps back to 4k60 on my One X for certain games but I haven't seen a pattern to it, maybe for One X enhanced games?

    1440p -> 4k is a really minor improvement in IQ that can only be noticed from extremely close viewing distances, while 120Hz is a game changer even beyond HDR.
