    Duck sake, my arctis headset finally gets delivered tomorrow. I am guessing this will be more at the mod range tho?

    Question for the more technical minded:

    Is there any point to me downloading the 4K texture pack for Mortal Kombat 11 on my Series X, considering I only have a 1080p TV?

    @nickthegun well, yes. But I thought someone might know something about the benefits of downscaling 4K with series x?

    @binky
    Why would you do that? Even with your 1080p tv you would see the difference when you are close to an object. Texture resolution doesn't correspond to the render or screen resolution.

    @Bobbyballsbraces

    Game seem to be the only other retailer with a preorder up at the moment.

    If you do get it from MS, don't forget to buy it with MS credit rather than pay directly. You can get the required amount of credit from CDKeys for £84.

    @binky Why not try the game with and without the 4K textures and see if you can spot any differences?

    What a good tip. I didn't know that you could pay for things with the credit on the Microsoft store.

    I'm approaching £45 worth or Reward Points, so if you combine it with that, you could save yourself quite a few quid.

    Do you have to redeem against an xbox gift card?

    @AceGrace As long as there are funds in your MS account at the time of purchase you have the option to pay using that.

    If it's a preorder, they'll take payment in full if funds are available, if you've only got a few quid in there then you can opt to part pay with your account, and they won't take any available credit until the item is ready to ship, at which point they'll drain your account balance and go to your card for the rest. It was quite handy with the Series X release as CDKeys get a bit arsey when you try and buy masses of credit and it meant I could part pay with the £5 credit I had available to have "account balance" as a payment option and a few weeks to top up my account with the credit as and when I could order it.

    You don't have permission to access "http://www.very.co.uk/xbox-series-x-sign-up.page" on this server.

    Meh, already disappointed with them!

    Eurgh, saw an Xbox series S in stock online, got it in the cart, bought it, got to the confirmation page which said they'd email you the details and thought all done. No email or text though. Got an email 30 minutes later and was told they had run out of stock and they were going to refund me. Is this how ridiculous things are now, that you can actually buy something but not actually buy something?

    Bit annoyed that I ended up having to buy a Turtle Beach headset before the official Xbox one was announced, especially considering it has bluetooth and mine doesn't. I know you can get the Stealth 700 with bluetooth but I was not spending £130 on a headset.

    It's like a bloody feed frenzy out there now. Anything new appears and BAM! it's gone.

    I'm pleased to see this, but I'm going to stick with my Turtle Beach Stealth 700X Gen 2 headphones.

    20 hour battery over the 15 hour, 50mm drivers, and all the adjustable options on the 700X I don't see these bettering. They also have the full Bluetooth connection to PC or mobile, so they dual connect just like the Xbox ones.

    For £90 (rather than the £130 RRP of the Turtles) it's a legitimate option though. I can see these being pretty popular!
