I haven't seen much but was hoping for Rogue Squadron GameCube days

Iíve been out of the Xbox loop for a while and let my GOLD lapse ages ago.

Can anyone confirm that itís still possible to buy a years GOLD and then upgrade it to Ultimate for a £1 still works?

Better to stack three years gold if you can afford it and then convert it for a pound.

Do you have to do three at once or can you add another 12 months in the 11 month?

Iím not sure to be honest, I think you only get the conversion to Ultimate once, so Iíd imagine if you convert with one year, thatís your lot.

Not sure whether the additional year you add in the 11th month would just got to Gold after the Ultimate had run down or if itíd give you a proportionate amount of Ultimate.

I know for sure itíll work with whatever amount of Gold you convert the first time. Not sure about after that.

The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

I think it goes up by a 1/3, so you add 12 months gold and it adds 4 months Ultimate instead, iím sure someone will correct me now

Can someone help me with setting a Child Profile on Xbox? I signed up my daughter with an email address I have for her, added her to family but it doesn't allow me any change anything... Simply says "You can't change names settings"

How do I make it so that account is properly set as a child account?

Just to give a bit on the process I've been through (posted to Microsoft support who have so far been as useful as a chocolate teapot)
I have a child and set up an outlook.com email address for her Her date of birth was incorrect and I added her to the Xbox and family account. She now appears as organizer I changed her date of birth on her account and it changed it to a child profile, I authorised but she still appears as organizer and I cannot change her Xbox settings in the family settings of my account

I am being a bit thick I think.

The new resident evil village game, I am really not clear if I can play it on my Xbox one (just a normal old machine)

Looking at amazon it is on Xbox series x and series s. So am confused!

On PlayStation it does say 4 and 5 so I am clear there and I did get a PS4 for last of us 2 so thatís an option!

I feel like my dad (though he is a nuclear physicist so he probably would get it too!)

Just under the green band at the top of xbox covers, they've started putting a black strip listing which consoles a game plays on. The original Xbox one is mentioned on the RE Village cover on Amazon, so you should be ok.

Thanks Iíll try and download a demo and if that works itís fine!

With the Xbox one, would there be games that donít work on my version? I get the later console versions would make games look nicer but not run into not being able to actually play a game at all. Thatís what I like about a console over pc!

I don't think there are any exclusive major titles yet on the Xbox but it'll happen eventually. I think the new console shortage has slowed things down though.

Some of the games do run pretty poorly on old consoles though (Cyberpunk on PS4 being the worst culprit).

The medium is xbox Series only, thats the only one I can think for xbox

RE8 demo runs well on ps4 (didn't try the demo on standard xbox) Cyberpunk is the only game that runs really badly on last gen base consoles

Luckily I have no plans for the next 6 months!

FIFA and most recent COD also have non backwards compatible series versions.

but they are not "exclusive major titles" or even made for next gen only titles

I think we will see more cross gen titles due to the lack of consoles available to buy (it would help if idiots didn't buy from scalpers)
