    @MajorNelson how will day one editions shipping work? Will it be a week before or dose it depend on how long away were live from MS or from a MS store?

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      It’s up to the retailers once we send them to their distribution centers

      • Josh Cox

        ok,thanks for the reply

      • john

        What happens if we get the console a day or two early? My amazon pre-order said estimated delivery on the 20th of November.

        • Guest

          How recent was that? Because I’ve seen that with games I’ve ordered and it still comes out the day it is released.

          • john

            It was a few days ago when I checked that, just checked again, though and it has been updated to the 22nd.

  • ElDirtySquirrel

    See ya in Boston!

  • Matt Micronaut Ahern

    off topic, just noticed that you have 2,000 more Gamerscore than me, new personal target set :P ….. See you at Burlington!

    • AC130

      Weird I have that same problem must get 2K gamerscore now you point it out.

    • GmailIsDown

      how could Major find time to play games?

  • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson
  • Dylan

    Off Topic: Thanks Microsoft for the free upgrade to release date shipping on GTA 5! Can’t wait to play it and add the free 1600 MSP to my account.

    Now the question is to save those points for inevitable GTA Online DLC, or to finally pull the trigger on State of Decay.

    • Dennis Crosby

      If you like zombie games I recommend you play state of decay

    • roozbeh, again

      Well that is a difficult situation, If it were me I would just buy both and miss lunch or something.

      I am a sad person.

    • JuanCabrera

      I would wait until they have some more deals. Xbox has been having some amazing deals recently and I’m willing to bet that State of Decay will go on sale soon.

  • Morris ヅ

    couple weeks for the big news ;) cant wait!.

    • William Hench

      Big news?

      • Morris ヅ

        listen to the podcast when phils there.

        • William Hench

          Guesses?

          • Morris ヅ

            listen 29:10

    • William Hench

      I listen to that earlier. Probably just a pack in game for north america

      • Morris ヅ

        if it is that then thats good news to.

  • Dennis Crosby

    Well GTA5 make it to the Xbox live store hope so I have no more room for physical disc.

    • AC130

      That makes sense how?

      • Dennis Crosby

        I have no more for physical disc in my game room but I have 100gb free on my hard drive

        • AC130

          Can I ask what you store in your room that takes up so much space that a disc can’t fit? : )

          • Dennis Crosby

            I have every console from the NES to a PS3 and 15 games for each except my 360 has over 50 games so it getting pretty cluttered

          • AC130

            Oh : S Although from what I have played of GTAV it would be worth getting rid of a game to make the space as it is an amazing game.

  • Ilovegoogleglass

    ROAD TRIP!

    • GmailIsDown

      ROAD TRAP!

  • GmailIsDown

    please put Diablo 3 on Demand. i don’t want to listen to my disc spinning while battling the minions of the Prime Evils.

    • Dylan

      You could just install the game.

    • ZenFranklin

      October 5th it will be there, and like Dylan said, install it for less system stress.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    lol come to Birmingham, Alabama for once or maybe you have before, but i don’t remember.

  • Tim Higginbotham Jr.

    See you at the Millenia Mall MS store and possibly Epcot the day before :D

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      I maaaay need to drop by and get a dive in @ EPCOT.

      • Jeff Hubler

        Hi Larry, quick question.Will there be a promo for a free game download for customers wanting to purchase and x box one..Thanks and is it true that up to 3-4 people can use my x box live acct.Thanks for any help!

  • evilfangs .

    Off Topic: Seriously there’s been no news of anything gaming related at all this weekend, it just makes the waiting game for GTA 5 seem even slower.

  • martin_m95

    off topic: Why is everyone so exited about gta 5. Whats with the game. Why is nobody exited about watch dogs

    • Dylan

      Who says they aren’t excited for Watchdogs?

      I am excited for both, but Watch_dogs doesn’t look as impressive as it did the original reveal.

      • martin_m95

        well i dont see anybody saying “watch dogs will be awesome”,”i cant wait for watch dogs” its all gta 5

        • roozbeh, again

          Maybe because it is coming out like 2 days from now.

          • martin_m95

            btw when is vegas gonna be free

          • roozbeh, again

            tomorrow

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            my guess with watch dog is it’s going to be very very very repetitive. Point, hack, run. Not saying it’s going to be bad, but certainly not as free as GTA. It feels it has a lot of the AC mechanic (watch dog). That being said, my thing is titanfall and the division =)

            i would like to see a studio doing a game such as payday but, you know, more like a AAA game

          • evilfangs .

            So you mean GTA 5?

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            @evilfangs:disqus me ? are you relating payday and gta !?!?! there is absolutely nothing comparable with both game’s intention. I mean a AAA game heist oriented.

          • evilfangs .

            Yeah I mean GTA 5, in which you plan out your bank heists, then execute them the way you see fit. Wear masks, steal as much as you like, kill whoever you like and escape. You know, exactly like Payday lol.

          • AC130

            Not really because you do a tonne of stuff and well can fly helicopters to escape heists, rappel and so on not much like Payday lol.

          • roozbeh, again

            And fly planes… my personal favorite.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            the whole game is not all about stealing thing. unlike payday. Payday tried to be arcadish simulation of a robbery and kinda do it well with a lot of minor bug and very few solid feature :O) gta is awesome at what it is but i wouldn’t compare both or even trying to compare both in any way

          • roozbeh, again

            I’ll give Watch Dogs a go before I make any judgement

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            its been free for years now

    • roozbeh, again

      Oh god why did you bring up Watch dogs up too.

      2013 WHY U SO EXPENSIVE?

      • martin_m95

        hahah

    • evilfangs .

      Because GTA 5 is out in little over a day. Watch Dogs is out 2 months away and it’s going to suck on current gen.

    • Lucas Sanches Cestari

      cuz it’s made by rockstar ‘-’

      • martin_m95

    • Volitar Prime

      I’ll be excited about GTA5 when it comes out on a next gen platform ans/or the PC.

      • martin_m95

        umm okay

  • NickBRCM

    Black Ops 1 and Battlefield Bad Company 2 for Games with Gold September !

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      lol

    • boe2

      That’d be 3 warshooters in a row, unlikely.

    • roozbeh, again

      Bad company maybe, but I can’t see Activision let black ops free.

      • AC130

        Wrong a sale a while ago gave us Aussies the chance to get for less then 5. And there are plenty of free things if you know where to look. : )

        • roozbeh, again

          I know where to look… preach that to others

          • AC130

            Clearly you don’t otherwise one would of noticed that M$ messed up region pricing and some stuff became free for a short while.

    • David Do0M

      They Announced the September “Games with Gold” games long ago. They are Magic:DOTPW 13 and Rainbow Six: Vegas.

      • NickBRCM

        Sorry, I meant October

  • Death Dealer

    So weird. Somehow I am able to download the free DLC for R6:V from the web store, yet I can’t download the full game that is marked free. It says it can’t complete the purchase.
    Had the same problem with BBT and FC3:BD last week, could not get it done from the web, yet on the console it all worked fine.

    • roozbeh, again

      Did you try to pay with a credit card? Because to my knowledge the website purchases are only possible that way.

      • Death Dealer

        I have a PayPal account attached. Thus far it has always worked fine, yet the past few weeks I have been getting this behavior on the website.

    • martin_m95

      thats because its region locked

      • Death Dealer

        Could be, yet I’m still in my own country and my PayPal account is locked to this country too (can’t change that).
        I hope those geofencing problems finally stop with the Xbox One though.

        • roozbeh, again

          Try waiting till tomorrow, if the problem persists then it probably is region locking

          • martin_m95

            why does ms give away games that are region locked thats pissing me of

          • roozbeh, again

            I doubt it is region locked though…
            The multiplatforms in this promotion have been region free from the start

          • martin_m95

            yes it is

            try downloading it

          • roozbeh, again

            More likely an issue with the game itself for now, it has just been made free so I would wait a while to see how it goes.

            Probably will be fixed by tomorrow

          • martin_m95

            what if they dont fix it. like they didnt fix case zero

          • roozbeh, again

            They will, it is the second game of the promotion after all.

          • martin_m95

            its been 3 days now

          • evilfangs .

            It’s not Microsoft’s fault that different countries have different laws.

          • martin_m95

            yes it is
            you gotta learn the difference between ip blocked and not available in a country

  • martin_m95

    why is there no threat about raimbol six vegas yet

    • evilfangs .

      I doubt anyone cares about Rainbow six with GTA 5 out in mire hours. Microsoft could announce every Xbox one will not include Kinect and be £200 and hardly anyone would give a dam. It’s all about the GTA 5!

      That or maybe Rainbow six is a good game?

      • martin_m95

        what about the people like me that dont care about gta 5. Aleast not right now

      • http://deulus.com/ Derek D

        One could only dream of a Kinect-less Xbox One at this point. I’m actually amazed Microsoft stuck to their guns on this one after back-peddling on just about everything else. I’m curious at this point to see what happens after launch if sales numbers are lower then they predict. Maybe that Kinect-less dream will come true.

        • roozbeh, again

          there are 2 scenarios about the kinect now.

          Either you will like it in the end, OR Microsoft releases it without the kinect. At this point it is pretty much up in the air for now, the first year’s results will dictate how it goes

  • david_hoyland

    So I just managed to grab a copy of GTA V ~6 hours early :)

    I hear Microsoft are banning people for playing early WTF?

    Do I really have to wait?

    • roozbeh, again

      I say it is best you wait.

      But if you can’t wait, then just play offline.

      • david_hoyland

        Just who in the hell do they think they are ???

        It’s like Microsoft intentionally think of ways to aggravate people o_O

        • roozbeh, again

          Well technically you shouldn’t have had the game now, so no real problem in my view.

          It’s just a few hours, people can wait that long. Right? RIGHT?

          • david_hoyland

            Oh I can wait. I just think banning peoples consoles from Xbox LIVE or whatever is a bit strong.

          • roozbeh, again

            I doubt it even happens. There really isn’t any proof to support it.

    • Nick Peck

      From everything I have read is that MS is banning people playing the leaked version of the game on modded Xbox’s. There hasn’t been one post anywhere with PROOF that they are banning people for getting a purchased retail copy a day or two early.

      If anything, just unplug from the internet and play it for now lol.

    • Death Dealer

      MS don’t ban legitimate early use. They are very well aware of illegally leaked copies already out there and those are the ones being banned (if they truly are and I agree on them being banned). People who stream the game before the release and purposely spoil it for everyone on the internet deserve this coming to them too.
      Right now, you are free to play the game as you please, even logged into Xbox Live.

      • david_hoyland

        Okay thanks. I think I will just wait until tomorrow now just to be on the safe side.

  • martin_m95

    2 days now and vegas is still region locked
