Had it in the cart and can't do it knowing it is an error even though I did just grab 3 years of gamepass @ $165.00 using the Gold conversion. The difference is MS is well aware of that "error" and using to their advantage.

After the huge gamestop stock run, they made a lot of money selling shares.

Gamestop is well off again and can handle this. No need to worry about a huge corporation.

I used to manage an EB Games when they were bought out by GameStop. Trust me when I say I know how shit of a company they can be. It's not about them. It's about my decisions.

I was just wondering about this. I did it a few years ago, and my gamepass ultimate subscrition ends sept. 2022. If i buy a year of gold, will it extend my game pass ultimate, or should i wait untill it expires and then do the $1 conversion again?

Full price series s is already preparing for shipment, but the $10 one is still being processed 🤔

Maybe this was the plan all along...

They did honor the recent price mistake where preowned animal crossings were like 10 bucks each and when they ran out they even sent ppl brand new versions instead.

I think you can still add a regular gold card but it will convert at $15/mo. I think Target has GPU 3mo cards at $25, that is only a few dollars a month more.

It has to expire first. The next game pass sub will be the $15 instead of $1. What I did. I purchased 3 years of live @ $50 after my game pass sub had expired. I loaded those three codes for xbox live gold which gave me three years. I then converted it to game pass by paying the one month $14.99 game pass sub.

This will be interesting to follow. Just curious if it was really a mistake because I don't think so.

We all know S stock is available do did GS order too many and have too much on hand? Did MS have to many and say hey GS on Thanksgiving i.want to do a two for one deal.

The reason I don't think it's a mistake is it went on for a while. Who even would program it in accidentally?

If it's a mistake though does GS honor it, I think so. Anyway I've never seen a deal like that in my life so congrats to anyone who got it.

It was a mistake because it only worked on the Fortnite bundle.

I think we can safely say no to both of those.

They totally wanted to give away a $300 console for $10!

Certainly the safest way to guarantee bankruptcy. But it is GS, so who knows. 🤭

Great deal for those that snagged it (if they actually ship it). It really is a nice console. Super quiet too, overall a really nice upgrade from X1.

it is obviously a mistake as the discount applies says it's for a year of Gamepass for $9.99 with the purchase of an Xbox console. I would imagine it went on for a while because the people who would normally fix it were not working today due to the holiday. There's no way they're going to honor a $290 discount for a misapplied coupon. But I hope they do since I ordered it.

Not true as my Gamestop had preorders open for days after they went live and picked up in store



He may have gotten his early as did I.

I spoke with @Mod of War towards the end of last year prior to launch and told him I would be getting my PS5 early and was going to share pics with him and eventually here but others had pics up before I got mine so it didn't matter at that point.
Cosign this. I literally got both of my PS5's by being at the gym across the street from gamestop during that one Sony had when gamestop started the preorders early. Me and the wife walked across the parking lot and preordered em, one in the man cave, one in the living room.

It was silly easy getting a PS5 for launch as stores had preorders up for days before filling up, hard to imagine now
Depends on where you live I guess. The second I heard pre-orders were starting that night instead of the next day I went to the gamestop that was two blocks away from where I lived at the time and I was 8th in line, I planned on getting the digital which was good because they had already gone through their allotment of the standard consoles before I reached the front and only had digital left. The line cut off at 20 and by the time launch day came they only had a few more than the original allotment. That was a high volume store in Los Angeles county and they weren't given many more after that first day. Compare that to the PS4 where they had a constant drip of PS4's being made available before launch for pre-order and ended up with a little over 300 total pre-orders ready for pick up at midnight for launch.
