    Out of about the 30 games shown only about 2 didn't interest me. And nearly all of them will be on gamepass so I didn't have alot to complain about with there e3 showing. Well impressed.

    I think my problem i have a bad memory and I end up watching the trailers on my phone, so I am never really blown away by supposedly amazing graphics!

    Scorn is giving me some really cool Prey 2006 vibes. Absolutely no idea what it'll be like though.

    Also the Geiger-ish artwork reminds me of that old adventure game he helped design in the 90s... Darkside? Darkworld?

    Ah, Dark Seed, that was it.
    It looks really interesting - hopefully it's not impossible to navigate, and hopefully there's plenty more pace and variation to the combat.

    I was a little disappointed with the e3 show, mainly because it lacked a big AAA mega moment from the likes of Fable or Hellblade.

    But as a Gamepass showcase I cant fault it to be honest. I managed to renew my Ultimate sub for 3 years last week using codes from CDKeys/Eneba for the frankly ridiculous price of £76.

    By Christmas that will have netted me Flight Simulator, Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Back4Blood & Dark Alliance and so forth, not to mention everything else the service delivers over the next 3 years. By comparison I spent nearly that on Returnal alone for my PS5.

    Mental really.

    Is that confirmed, all I heard was they'll be interviewing the devs nothing about game reveals. Again let's not raise expectations where none exist.

    I might stick another year on if that's the case... What did you buy exactly?

    Fair point, but maybe splitting hairs? Lets just say they shall be *covering* Hellblade then.

    I'm excited for Forza Horizon 5, but otherwise was left pretty cold. It was like a parody of what people think Xbox's usual conferences/library is. Everything was a shooter.

    Usually they mix it up by bringing a famous Japanese developer on stage, or having something unique third party titles to show, even if they're multiplatform. This felt like the Doritos/Monster Energy meme come to life.

    Also, really sad that Everwild's been delayed for so long.

    Not really, if they believe this to be an important game then they'd would have revealed it at the Xbox presentation and then done a dive into the stuff for this Thursday. Seeing as it's using UE5 I don't think they have anything solid to show off as of yet.

    Obviously I may be wrong about things but this E3 especially has shown us not to get too excited about any big reveals. I think we might get some stuff in Gamescom though. Although from what I read Fable, Perfect Dark, Avowed, Gears 6, Hellblade 2 and some other game from a new studio are looking at 2023 releases. So I think we may get something next E3.

    3 x 12 Month Gold (Brazil) codes from CDKeys, £24.99 at the time.

    1 x 7 Day Ultimate (Worldwide) code from Eneba to convert the whole thing.

    Has to be redeemed through a Brazilian VPN though, I used Windscribe.

    And for God's sake make sure there's a Southeasterly wind during the process otherwise it won't work.

    Apologies if this has been answered before.

    As an existing Gamepass Ultimate customer, am I right in presuming I could cancel that if I get Xbox Access or whatever the new thing is called? Will pull the trigger very quickly if that's the case.

    If I'm reading that right and you have a gamepass ultimate subscription already and you buy a series S/X through all access then the subscription you get with it would just stack with what you already have.

    I think if under a year yes, from reading you can only have 3 years max, you don't need to claim the 2 years gamepass immediately

    It's like the mobile phone contract version whereby you pay for the console and Gamepass etc monthly.

    I see I may have confused people on here by not stating that my current Gamepass is s monthly direct debit, I haven't bought a set period.

    Right looks like it will cancel from the end of the month I've paid forward so it's all good.

    I've applied for a Series X via this scheme and if I seem to be the first I will feedback how it goes. Funnily they are saying it will be with me in three working days, I wonder if they save a certain amount of stock.

    @Drakesmoke as soon as you add the 24 months it will say your next payment is due when that expires, no need to cancel anything

    I was surprised and delighted that there was no fucking about with All Access. Just go through the set-up process and it sorts itself out. Next payment in 2023. Wonderful.

    Cheers all, sounds great. Just no idea when the thing will arrive now. Have ordered from '4Gadgets' and it says within 3 working days, which seems unlikely with stock levels everywhere!

    Mine from Game came in two days. Stock might be easing a little...

    Aha, thanks, I hadnít heard about that.

    I still have 2 years 5 months left on my Gamepass Ultimate, hopefully in 5 months there will be a way for me to cheaply add another cheeky year to get back up to the 3 year limit.

    In stock at Simply Games - assuming you don't mind spending an additional £200 on bundled shite.

    Given I walked into Game and got a XSX and a XSS last week, I assume these are more broadly available now the scalpers have realised they can't resell them for stupid markups.
