What's the point of them phoning you after you have bought it?

Well just bought Fifa 15 via India. That was painless. I drew some cash out of my bank in Sweden last week using a cash machine, I got a text within minutes advising me of it.

Used a cc for India though. No idea what the difference is between normal and ultimate edition is. But ultimate edition sounded better so went for that. Back on UK soil now and downloading it

The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

Anyone else running games from external storage? Today whilst playing Destiny I have been booted back to the dashboard twice, each time a pop up appears a few seconds later saying that "External storage is ready". Destiny is stored on the external drive, so it appears that the console is disconnecting and reconnecting it for some reason. It's a Seagate Expansion Portable 2TB with the "sleep mode" disabled, I'm running on the latest Preview dash. Haven't had the problem before today, but can't remember if I've played anything off the external drive before

Problem I now have is my paypal is denied usage in the US store! Annoying.

Where can you buy US$ gift cards that send you the codes?

You can only use the credit in the US Store though, so no use for these HK / Indian offers.

Why are people buying in the US store when HK/India are cheaper?

If you've not got a CC or a Debit card which will 'work' your options are limited.

Just bought FIFA from the Indian store. Tip for people with a card that doesn't work - set up a Neteller account. You get a virtual MasterCard with that which will work pretty much anywhere, so you can just deposit and use that for foreign funds.

Yes from a 4TB. It is one of the "proper" powered variety though and not had one issue whatsoever. The USB powered one I use as a DVR on my TV does show symptoms similar to yours and I put it down to the fact it is USB powered.

Jesus this dash update is taking forever. Just when I fancied a quick game of Destiny too!

Any reason it is so slow tonight?

Didn't someone say Play Asia did HK points?

Edit - yes they do.
