Well they've never done that with a Game Pass game before but with EA Access games, the only way to do it was on the phone app.

Disappointing that now that everyone has signed up for Game Pass they're making Game Pass staples their free GwG games .

Yeah, that's pretty shitty. Since I already redeemed GoW on gamepass (and packed away my physical copy), I had a hell of a time redeeming it for GWG. I had to finally go on the MS webpage and 'buy' it there for free.

Yeah, you can do that now. With previous EA Access games that went free with Gold (PvZ GW2 for example), you couldn't buy it on the website, only on the app.

I saw Jackbox Party Pack 2 is being added to Game Pass in August. Sweet.

Nice tribute and all, but I'd be worried that if the house was broken into by someone who loves to game - that would be one of things they found cool and would steal.
Throw the ashes in a basic urn and no one would be interested.

I agree. You keep complaining about it here, when obviously nobody here knows what the solution is. Did you try contacting Xbox tech support?

If your console is set to "Instant On" it should update automatically, as long as power isn't cut to the console for some reason.
Also, if you have an external drive with games on it you need to uncheck the "When Xbox is off, turn off storage" for them to update.

But if all settings are correct and it still isn't updating properly there might be a bug of some kind.

Wait, what's this?

We have an external drive and have to manually switch it off when we're done. Can the Xbox One S turn it off somehow when the system is off?

That's been in the settings for awhile. Screen should look similar to the image below.

That was already checked. I’m looking now and it looks like the drive has a separate power supply.
