nah, i checked. you can't pick or choose which campaigns. only Reach and ODST are separate for some reason, but don't take up much storage, again, for some reason. i checked and everything was moved over. it's all good. no worries. no more questions.

Do you see what's taking up space?

Apparently if an install fails or gets corrupted, the system doesn't clean it up properly:

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is Free to Download Until 10th May


Bandai Namco has made Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 free for a limited time, in a bid to do its part in helping people stay at home during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The publisher notes that its staff around the globe is currently working remotely, as part of the effort to curb spread of the virus.

“Our vision is to follow our slogan word for word and provide – ‘more fun for everyone,’ said Bandai Namco in a press release. “We are striving to provide entertainment that everyone can enjoy in the hope we can bring smiles and laughter to video game players throughout the world during this difficult time.”

That means sending its “goodwill ambassador” Pac-Man into people’s homes, making Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 free to download for everyone from today on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC

Like, original? Or an S or X?

If you're interested in Game Pass, be sure to load up on Xbox Live Gold first, then convert it over, for the best deal.

Hope you have a really good internet connection. Many updates for games have absolutely brutal download times.

For example, Red Road Redemption 2 upon putting the disc in after opening the package had an 11 hour download for the game updates. And it spanned 2 discs!!! Not saying that's a game you would play.

Might as well get used to that before next gen comes.

You also have to wait for the drive to write the data to the hard disk before it even begins downloading the update.

Is there is a sleep mode to download an update offline?

I can never seem to find it.

I have a massive 60 GB update that is going to take 7 1/2 hours to download and I don't want to keep my console on that long.

If you power off using the controller, it’ll keep downloading the update.

There is an option “keep games up to date” that will download game updates in the middle of the night automatically.

Also, you'll want to make sure your Xbox's Power setting is in "Instant On" mode, instead of energy saving, for it to download updates while it's "off."

They have 1 month of GamePass Ultimate for $1 right now, but I don't know if they're still doing a conversion from GOLD or not.

They're still doing the conversion.

https://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/gold/upgrade
What happens to my prepaid months of Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass when I join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate?

When you join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, we will apply any prepaid time you have on Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass toward Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, up to a maximum of 36 months.

For example, if you have 3 months of Xbox Live Gold and 3 months of Xbox Game Pass already on your account when you purchase your first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you will have a total of 7 months of Ultimate on your account before you need to renew your membership.
So the key is to purchase/activate as many months of Live Gold as you can before upgrading to Game Pass Ultimate.

12 months of Live Gold is normally $60. Both Costco and CDKeys have it for $55 right now:
https://www.costco.com/xbox-live-12-...100374986.html
https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/mem...p-xbox-one-360

Gamespot recommended a particular eBay seller that has it for $50
https://www.gamespot.com/articles/xb.../1100-6476625/
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Microsoft-X...E/143301322469

Live Gold hasn't gone on sale that often recently, likely due to MS understanding that many people are loading up on before converting to Game Pass Ultimate.

https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/18/1...-months-how-to

Step 1. Buy Xbox Gold, Sams Club and Costco offer 2 year memberships for $100. You can convert up to 36 months.

Step 1a. Redeem the code if you bought one.

Step 2. Buy the $1 Xbox Ultimate Game Pass Promo from your Xbox One.

Step 3. Wait, the conversion should be automatic.

It is important to note that 1 to 1 conversion is one time only and must be done before you get Game Pass Ultimate. Wait, what? In other words, if you want the full 36 months for less than $539 then you have to buy 36 months of Gold before buying the Ultimate Game Pass promo. So expect to pay less than $200 for this which is a huge savings.

If you already did a conversion, you can still buy Gold and Game Pass cards and codes but these will convert based on the price of the codes. Eh?

Here is MS' conversion table:

1 month of Gold > 20 days of Ultimate

3 months of Gold > 50 days of Ultimate (1+ month)

6 months of Gold > 79 days of Ultimate (2+ months)

12 months of Gold > 4 months of Ultimate

24 months of Gold > 8 months of Ultimate

1 month of Xbox Game Pass (Console Games) > 20 days of Ultimate

3 months of Xbox Game Pass (Console Games) > 2 months of Ultimate

6 months of Xbox Game Pass (Console Games) > 4 months of Ultimate

12 months of Xbox Game Pass (Console Games) > 5 months of Ultimate

24 months of Xbox Game Pass (Console Games) > 10 months of Ultimate

1 month of Xbox Game Pass PC Games > 20 days of Ultimate

What kind of headset? For computer, with mic, wired? I see a bunch on amazon, for kids and not for kids.

Oh I forgot which thread we were in, for Xbox, so no bluetooth. They have some but none of the cheapest kinds.
