I have traded in consoles before with Game, and from my experience, when I dropped off the console, they told me to come back in around 1 hour while they test everything. When I got back my store credit was ready. If you’re looking at trade-in they will give you a voucher/credit, but I’ve recently found out that store credit can’t be used for online pre-orders, so your brother will have to go in store to place his pre-order if you go the trade-in route.I saw a comment here that I can't seem to find to quote now. Someone mentioned GAME offer £220 trade-in for Xbox One X.
My brother is considering one of the new consoles, and with seemingly full Xbox One back compat there seems little point in him hanging onto it.
Before I suggest he trade his in, does anyone here have much experience with how GAME trade-ins work? Do you have to wait around why they test it? If you want cash do they literally give cash or do they need Bank/Paypal info?
At first I thought you were talking about the actual GPU not 'GamePass Ultimate' and was thinking "what on earth is he talking about?"Apologies for posting in two threads but it applies to both...
So I wanted clarification on the whole GPU issue if you were to buy an S/X via All Access.
I found out via live chat that the All Access 24 months GPU will be baked into the console. So you’ll get an option to activate it there and then on the console when you’re setting up or later (which is done in settings). So if you have GPU until 2023 for example, you can let that sub go down, then activate the 2 years All Access whenever you want.
But I went further....
I wanted to know about the situation regarding buying outright so called Microsoft. Seems a bit unfair that people buying via All Access get GPU for 2 years and not those buying outright.. Now I can’t say whether this person had the right info or not but he seemed very confident that there was going to be a code of some kind (in the box of the S/X, emailed to you or on a receipt) saying that for £/$24.99, you get 2 years worth of GPU....
I literally got him to confirm this 3 times to make sure I had it right (only a technical support dude after all... ) Because for me, £449 + £24.99 (for 2 years of GPU) = £473.99 is a substantial saving. But he seemed adamant that this was a thing and would be announced soon (when pre orders go live perhaps?).
So yeah, massive essay from me, but thought I’d share what I found out. I’ll believe the outright info when I see it but the All Access stuff is a lock.
Not good that. As if you have a 4K tv and 1080p amp You can not get the Dolby digital or HD-DTS if your tv can not send the Audio through to the tv to the amp u touched.Seeing the back again reminds me of my disappointment about the lack of Optical Out port.

Use the optical port on the TV.Not good that. As if you have a 4K tv and 1080p amp You can not get the Dolby digital or HD-DTS if your tv can not send the Audio through to the tv to the amp u touched.
So how are you supposed To get DTS and Dolby if you have a 4K tv and don’t have a 4K amp ? Some TVs don’t have ARC or some TVs do but only steam 2.0 out.
But you get two years of GPU as part of that price, and works out cheaper.Not really. The all access route is still more expensive over the two years
Could you remind me what happened with Amazon for the Xbox One X launch? I got mine from Game and will likely do so again but have been thinking of using Amazon for Series X.Let's hope Amazon have learnt from the Xbox One X pre-order debacle and get it right for the Series X launch, as I'll likely use them, because I have a long service award from work I've been sat on that I can exchange for Amazon gift cards.
My Amazon One X arrived launch day at 10am.Could you remind me what happened with Amazon for the Xbox One X launch? I got mine from Game and will likely do so again but have been thinking of using Amazon for Series X.
Hmmmm. I think perhaps wherever you get it, if you're going with delivery, there's always that risk. Maybe I'm old school in this regard, but going into a store in person to pre-order and then collecting safeguards against delivery issues.My Amazon One X arrived launch day at 10am.
My best mates order from Game never arrived, i managed to find him one on AVF classifieds tho so after a 100 mile round trip to Nottingham he got back home later that day a very happy chappy.
Just have to get lucky by the sound of it.
A lot of people didn't get it till a few days later, think mine was nearly a week late.Could you remind me what happened with Amazon for the Xbox One X launch? I got mine from Game and will likely do so again but have been thinking of using Amazon for Series X.
