Never got on the game pass train. Don’t you pay a monthly fee ? Is it $10 a month or $15 a month and you get xblive?

Are they keeping the same price for next gen?
It's a monthly fee, yes. I've seen nothing about price increases.

This feels like taking a billy club to a dead pony, but GamePass is EASILY the best value in console or PC gaming. That's not just me talking -- it's the consensus of nearly everyone here.

If you own an Xbox and don't have GamePass, you must really enjoy burning money on new games or have an incredibly small library of games you play. Otherwise, there's no reason not to have it.
When I had the trial none of the games really appealed to me. I see now they have RDR2 but I already own that. So probably won’t get it if I won’t play those games they offer.

But if they improve it I’m interested in checking it out. Will keep my eye on it.

There are more than 200 games on GamePass, and you found nothing to appeal to you? Damn, you're a hard man to please.

Xbox Series X/S preorders are just as much of a lottery as I expected. Every major outlet's website was either locked up, down, sold out or queued at 11:02 a.m. ET, at least for me.

Congrats to those who snagged one. If I have to wait until Black Friday or closer to Christmas, c'est la vie.

Can't believe the pre-orders at Best Buy didn't even give you an option to pre order. What a mess!

Same. Had one in my cart, but it eventually vanished. I wasn't too keen on that deal, anyways, as store pickup wasn't available. Shipping said it might arrive by Nov. 16, nearly a week after release. No dice. I want it on release day.

Rookies.

Ordered one from Microsoft and one from Walmart, both to deliver by 11/10. And one is for my little bro, so not flipping/scalping. He just is a rookie too and wasn't successful. LOL.

I had tabs open for Best Buy and The Microsoft Store. After a couple refreshes on the Microsoft Store, I was able to successfully order an X. Best Buy never went live, so for those that still want one, there is hope once they decide to unlock preorders there.

Yeah who knows what happens w/ Best Buy. I had Target, Walmart, Microsoft, Best Buy, Newegg and Gamestop all open on two separate computers. LOL...it's like the sneaker game...gotta have options.

After the debacle of the PS5 pre-orders, you'd think this would go a bit more smoothly.

I'm in the waiting room at Game Stop on their site, but I think I'll be waiting until December.

Next time, do pre-orders a year in advance. Require the console gamer tag and half money down to ensure one.

What a mess! After trying for an hour here on BestBuy Canada - only to crash a million times, I got one from The Source (maybe that's only Canadian?). Delivers on the 17th. Let's see - I'll probably get an email shortly saying it's cancelled :roll:
