All Xbox One controllers have a micro usb socket on the back. They allow you to use the controller wired on a PC. They're also used for charging the plug n charge kit batteries.
Thanks kanedaa, that's a great help.

I'd never noticed the micro usb on the XBox controller before having never needed it. I'll test that later and hopefully it works

EDIT: The Xbox controller works perfectly. Thanks again

As an Xbox One X is around £260 is it worth swapping from an Xbox One? I have a a Sony 1080P TV so 4k isn't an issue.

Seems like £120 - £150 on Ebay for the 500GB Xbox, will I get £110 benefit?

Imho at this time no. But if you're like me you'll probably ignore and get one anyway

I got one recently as I got a 4k TV. If it wasn't for that I'm not sure it would've been worth the upgrade. You will get better textures etc but
I only sold my S for £100 and that was a bit of effort

The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

The S isnít even capable of 1080p in a lot of games (more often 900p) and sub 30 FPS is quiet common on it. The X is not just about 4K, you need it for smoother frame rates.

Is it worth the extra £100-150? Definitely

Need it is very much not true.
It may depend what you play but as a single player gamer I have not noticed smoother frame rates and the like since the move, and never missed them on the S

The S isn't a good upgrade unless you want a 4k bluray player and don't have the money for X

waiting for series X seems the better idea but no games a really going to take advantage of ALL the extra power at the minute.

Itís just part of the multiplayer I believe that is accessible? Well worth a go as itís been the best version in years. Also if you havenít already, Warzone is fantastic fun.

It may well just be multiplayer mode but I believe you still have to download that majority of the 135GB to play it ( as it uses core code from the main game )

Just given Journey to the Savage Planet a go, has anyone played this?, having to constantly go back to the airship is already irritating me, does this back and forth continue throughout the game?

If it does I think Iíll give this one a miss.

You quickly find alien teleport stations that allow fast travel from various areas. Love the game so far....

Game Pass keeps on giving for me. Finished A Plague Tale last week and it was terrific. Started playing Neir Automata the other night, seems good so far, not my normal thing but always looking for something different.

I also bought Ghost Recon Breakpoint after the free weekend, and it's a total blast in co-op. Much like Wildlands but that's ok with me.

Started Nier Automator myself the other day, got annoyed after dying after about 30-40 minutes and no auto save so had to start right back at the beginning, unskippable cut scenes and everything. Put me off trying it again.
