Couple of my friends are trying to buy the Series X on All access. I just wanted to put a thread up to say how much of a mess this has been. They were logged onto game and smyths the two UK retailers doing the All Access deal from 7.30am this morning.
The links weren’t even up to buy the console. Then the website went down. Came back up briefly, but have been down the rest of the day. Nobody knows when the websites will be back up. Poor, poor effort from Game and Smyths. But the point of this thread is just to show solidarity with those people desperately trying to buy an all access console and losing a day of their lives, if not more in the process. How on earth can a retailer be so unprepared for this?
I can only assume they weren’t prepared for the demand, it certainly sucks for people using XAA. When I was on Currys this morning I didn’t ge tthe queue link until 10 mins before hand but others somehow found it really early, so I assume alot of people lost out if they used the websites.
I don’t think it’s even possible to get an XSX now, certainly not for launch.
It’s not an issue with Microsoft or all access but with the retailers doing it in the U.K., Game and Smyths. Two odd choices as they are brick and mortar stores…both have awful websites and game in particular are terrible.
Game told me when I pre-ordered mine to wait until tomorrow at 6am then my preorder code and reward number will be on the database to create a new Access account and sort the finance. This is maybe where the online issues have risen at Game and Smyths
Hi sorry to bump the thread but I am really confused, I got my Series X through All access and the documentation says that to redeem the 24 Months I have to select Settings>Account>Included with this XBOX
but I cant find any “Included with this XBOX” option
My best advice would be to contact Xbox Chat support online.
They’re pretty good imo. I have no affinity with 4gadgets but maybe you bought a used product where the owner used that code already ? No clue. Hope you get it sorted out.
No, in subscriptions it is just the history of my normal subscriptions to xbox: live in the 360 era and then jumped to gamepass PC and now my current gamepass ultimate for the Series S I had till yesterday.
I will wait for those 48 hours but feel it is kinda weird.
Exertis is supposed to be a serious retailer for big companies and all that. But they just have a standard email for support.
Hi I my problem has been fixed, I think it is a good idea to post it in case someone stumble upon this thread with similar problems.
I just had to reset the console and then setting up the console the old fashioned way, not with the app but with the menus. that way I was directly prompted to redeem the 2 years. Now I have gamepass until 25/06/2023
