Phew, I thought my Xbox had just died! I got the black out bug for the 5th or 6th time, pulled the plug and restarted to nothing, repeated this 3-4 times before I pulled all the cables and restarted. This time it worked....

Not sure if it's been mentioned but I just noticed AvP Requiem is available to watch for free this weekend on Xbox.

I got this also, one possible concern from the blurb was that Parties and Party Matchmaking will only work with others on the preview, so sounds like if I got onto the preview and the rest of the guys I normally game with didn't, I wouldn't be able to party up with them

That's actually really good news, it means they are making drastic changes!

I really dislike the hidden game party system, they need to get shot of that

How exactly would you be able to test the party features of the beta if you couldn't invite /communicate with friends

I ead you could refer people for the beta if you are accepted. So I imagine you gradually can spread the love.

It's like they're determined to sabotage their own machine. They keep making some remarkably bad business choices.

Sorry, I know resolutiongate had died down for a few days but found this quite funny.

who could have guessed that pretending to be in a different country to purchase cheaper digital games could have bad consequences?

that said, don't think that website is a reliable source for anything, full of typos etc.

Yeah it does say you can refer people, although it's not guaranteed that anyone will be accepted. It's like the code that I got, doesn't mean that I will be getting the update early, it's just an invite to apply for it haha

I'm just hoping any update fixes the black out bug!

Just did a quick google to see what the "black out" bug was, can't say i've come across anyone that's had it, other than T4V. Hopefully I haven't spoke too soon!

I had it once. Thought it was a crash. Quick reboot and all was good and hasn't happened since.

For me, reboots do not fix it, you have to pull the plug and do a cold boot.

I've had it at least 4 times since the update.
