    Just bought Saints Row 2 because it was about the cost of a can of coke. I remember not actually liking it when it came out. What is wrong with my brain.

    @Rodney
    Easily the best of the SR series with some great ideas an innovations. I always though it was the second best GTA after VC. ;)
    With one of the best character created still to this day.

    It is a shame is legacy is so devalued by the bugs/pc version. Would love a remake.

    Anyone had their Xbox One X turn off suddenly and display the following message when rebooted?

    Your Xbox One console is designed to shut down automatically to protect itself from insufficient ventilation. Like other electronic devices, the Xbox One requires proper ventilation. To prevent another automatic shutdown

    Do not block any ventilation openings on the console of power supply

    Do not place the console or power supply on a bed, sofa, or other soft surface that made block the ventilation openings

    Do not place the console or power supply in a confined space, such as bookcase rack or stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.

    Do not place the console or power supply near any heat sources, such as radiators, heat registers, stoves or amplifiers.


    Had it last night when playing Rocket League...i was playing for around 3-4 hours before it happened. The top right and back right (looking at the front) of the box was hot. Only recently upgraded but never had the same issue with my OG Xbox One which i had installed in the same location in my AV unit for 3 years. There's 10-20cm clearance around the box...surely thats enough space for it to breathe?

    I started getting that message on my OG Xbone, it died a couple of months later :(

    Probably not helpful.

    My 1X has turned itself off a couple of times, and wouldn't turn on for a few minutes. Didn't give any error message though when it started up again.

    @Ror Outer Worlds for an hour...then Rocket League for the rest of the night.

    Would be just my luck if it does die. Bought it secondhand from a stall at a retro games fair. :(

    The Xbox One X shutdown issue has become more prevalent after the recent releases of Fallout76/Outerworlds/ModernWarfare. Their forums, Reddit and Twitter have been awash with reports.

    @8bitMofo Ah, good to know. Only other thing i can think of is i was transferring alot of games over to my external at the time, hard drive heat may have contributed to the shutdown?

    @Buztafen Ah, right, yes, you did say :D Was just wondering, as I saw a lot of people on Reddit experiencing shutdowns while playing MW.

    @Buztafen Could well be. Try playing without anything plugged into the USB, just off internal Hard drive as a test.
    Also, be sure to plug the console directly into the wall and no power strip/surge protector.

    Edit: I did read something about switching the graphics/performance setting on the console that showed mixed results, but worth a try.

    Cheers 8bit, i'll see if those suggestions hopefully prevent another shutdown. Some interesting posts on the Outer Worlds reddit, lots of over heating crashes!

    I haven't had any issues with the Outer Worlds on my X. It does kick in the fan but no problems.

    Same as Jambo here, but my console did shut down and give me that error fairly recently. I can't remember what I was playing though...

    Anyway, despite the overheating warning, the console was cool to the touch, so I would blame that game (whatever the hell it was!).

    I've had a few errors like when playing Outer Worlds - it's usually then fine for a bit. I hope it's not on its way out.

    Christ, they really should retire the service.

    @Ror - Interesting that yours was cool to the touch when it shutdown. Mine was definitely warm around the back (ooer) where it vents out.

    I'm tempted to try and take it apart and reapply thermal paste (may also replace the HD with an SSD while im at it). Anybody tired this solution before?

    You would undoubtedly destroy your console. Do not do this.

    They are slowly making it worse, so people don't care when its killed off. Its like when Amazon slowly killed off Lovefilm, they made the service terrible as they wanted people to take up amazon prime.

    :D I appreciate your confidence in my abilities. It'll be a 'last resort' thing, its out of warranty so its that or fork out more for a replacement...after justifying the cost to the boss! :rolleyes:

    Not sure if this is old news but there's a Game Streaming (preview) app on the Android store that lets you stream Xbox games to your phone, as long as you've got a bluetooth controller. You can also register for Project Xcloud game streaming via the app

    You also need to be on the Xbox insider programme. It does work pretty well though. I've been playing gears of war 4 on it and apart from a few artefacts here and there it's been good.

    Even tried Forza whilst my wife was driving...that gave me motion sickness so I wouldn't try that :p

    @General_Martok I'm not on the insider programme and I've downloaded and signed in to the app just fine- will it lock me out when I try to connect?

    (Xbox is fully off until I get home later so I can't test it out)

    @hedben2013


    It won't let you use it until you sign up to the insider programme and you need a Bluetooth controller to use it.

    On top of that I think it only works on certain phones at the moment but not sure. I'm using a galaxy note 9.

    It's sounding like Rage 2 might be one of the Game Pass games announced tomorrow. It briefly appeared on the dashboard for some people.
