    Anybody here using the Arctis 9X with their new Xbox? I've got a weird issue where when I turn the headphones off and shut down console, the headphones restart the console and then no controllers can connect. No matter what you do. In the end the only way to remedy it is with a hard reset. I've found other people online with same issue and sent in ticket to customer support at Steelseries. I just wondered if anybody else had the issue? Or if anybody has the headset and is having no issues with the Series X. Ta.

    No. The current set I have work normally. I'll say that the headset quality is lacking in a few areas. Build quality is poor, I've had to send a couple of sets back due issues with the hinges. Connectivity had been an issue in a previously RMAd set. They sound excellent though. However, I'd probably not choose to buy again.

    I have to say that I'm liking the quick resume - I get frustrated with one game and straight into another - most of the time anyway. It's improved my gaming sessions.

    Did anyone here switch from ps4 to xbsx rather than leap to ps5?

    If yes, does it seem like a good choice?.... I'm swayed to ps5 because of backwards compatibility and a lot of feedback seeing very good

    @markypants itís a known bug with xbox wireless headsets on the XSX. Make sure you power off the headset before powering off the console. MS have promised a fix.

    Also doing this on my s. Headset off first is the thing.

    Glad it will get fixed in time.

    @leekuti I did. Nothing on the PS5 that tempts me even slightly yet. Series X had the better backwards comparability by far, quick resume (when it works) has permanently changed how my gaming sessions play out, and GamePass is presently ridiculously good value with more great games than Iíll feasibly ever have time to play.

    The margins are so slim this gen, though, that I donít think you can go wrong with either. I thought Iíd have at least a little PS5 envy, but I genuinely donít. Happy to wait for a mid gen update in a hopefully smaller chassis, or possibly skip it entirely. All depends on the games. It helps that Iím burned out on the Sony exclusives. Hoping the MS acquisitions turn out some quality games before too long.

    I came from an old PS4 to an SX on an OLED...as you can imagine it's a massive jump for me. Gamepass is immense, less so if you've been playing all those games last gen, but if you haven't...

    I'm loving it, but then I was always in the MS stable prior to the PS4. The only thing that I feel I'm missing out on is the PS5 controller, but I guess there's no way of telling how many (and how well) games will make good use of the adaptive triggers. That said the SX controller seems excellent to me.

    If BC is your thing then from what I've read the SX seems to have less issues and better implementation?

    Anybody else have a series 2 Elite controller. Picked one up yesterday and the A button misses probably 1 in every 10 presses.

    Had a quick google and Reddit seems to think they are all like that! Just trying to decide if I want to swap it or just get a refund.

    Just seen the FM 2021 review on the front page, completely forgot that itís coming to Xbox!

    Anyone know what the story is with it?, canít see it available for pre-purchase on the Xbox store and canít find it for sale physically anywhere?

    Possibility that itíll be on game pass maybe???

    Cool, Iíll exchange it then. Really like it apart from that. If you deliberate with your presses it registers every time but itís softer presses at an angle it struggles with. Never had the same issue with any other Xbox controller.

    So game are taking pre-orders for the series S with shipping at the end of december. I'm willing to wait but can Game be trusted to deliver on pre-order? I've heard countless stories where they happily take pre-orders then don't deliver them due to their ineptitude.

    I got an email from Game yesterday to say my Series X (Ordered through all access) was despatched via Royal Mail 48 tracked and signed. Then at the bottom of the email it says says expected 24/12/2020. Should I get my hopes up? :D

    I had the same type of email from Game which was delivered on release day but their email said some date in December, so I wouldn't worry. You'll get a separate email from RM with the tracking details.

    Yeah last years game (and the one prior?) was on Game Pass for PC. Not seen anything about the new one being added yet.

    Might well happen eventually, but will be months away.
