How do you install the game early if you have GamePass? I booted up my XBox last night scrolled over to GamePass section and couldn’t find it. I went to the MS Market place found the game but only saw an option to preorder.

I want to give this game a go while COD MW is installing Friday night.

Friday can't come soon enough. I had some time to burn and using a day off for this. I haven't done that in awhile.

No, because Sony fans never misbehave.


p.s. Sorry, you probably wanted a serious answer to that question, lol.

I don't spend much time on here, tbh. I rarely visit the Xbox side of this forum, because I just don't have any interest. So I wouldn't see any Sony fans trolling Xbox over there, if it was happening. I can say that, in the past, I've reigned in Val, TD, and several very persistent trolls who did not think highly of Microsoft (Prophet, Sunset, some others I've forgetten now). That was mostly in the past, though. Over the past year, I've taken several long breaks from this forum and from forums in general. I spend more time on GAF lately, because it suits me better. I try to limit myself to threads where games I'm interested in are being discussed. Like Outer Worlds.

I guess the short answer is, I probably would if I saw it, but because of my viewing patterns, I'm not likely to see it.

I'm not claiming to be fair and balanced. I have biases like anyone else. I'd probably be more inclined to let a Sony fanboy get away with something, just because I'm a Sony Pony myself, and also because the general bias of the forum leans so strong in the other direction.

Has anyone tried changing their timezone in order to play games sooner? I'm really tempted to change mine to NZ so I can start playing at 7 am tomorrow.

hehe....haven't heard anything about that, but it might be tied to where you purchased, etc. I think we can play by 7pm, eastern time though. Perfect for me because of work.

I think for the PC version that's when the global launch is supposed to be. For consoles it's different times. NZ is the first timezone it is released, which is 7 am EST. Here's the countdown for the NZ console release window and the map.

Makes sense. I've purchased from MS Store for the PC version.

The funniest part about all of this is that I play both of my consoles pretty equally. But "ImA FaNbOy"
Well, apparently you HAVE been complaining about a fan quite a bit...

hahahahaha. Man it is awful. I can take a video if you'd like to prove it.
No need to. It's a known issue with some Pro's. I imagine at least half. I think there is a newer sku with less fan noise. Mine sounds like a jet plane when playing. I just played an finished Lost Legacy and it was fan friendly. It goes up and down depending on if I am in a menu or a complex scene.

I have the second model Pro 7115B, which is still loud. I even tore it apart and re thermal pasted it and cleaned it (it wasn't dusty), no difference.

The changing your timezone to New Zealand worked! It booted up at 7 am this morning using the Game Pass Xbox version. Would have had to waited until midnight if not.
