I use AA rechargeable batteries with a recharge unit. Not as fun as a dedicated xbox unit but chucking aa batteries in the pad has never been easier

I also leave a USB cable plugged into my TV and whenever little one is watching tv or I'm on another console I leave a pad charging on the side.

Top tips

Cool news from Microsoft, one first party exclusive per quarter and a streaming device being worked on. I wonder if they mean handheld or a small box under the TV

Hey, so say I had an Xbox Series X and put the game discs of, for example, Red Dead Redemption or Fable 2 in the machine, would the console then download the enhanced versions of the games, or do you need to re-buy the digital versions of the game to get all the benefits? Thanks :)

I think however you install the games the 'One X' enhancements will be available by default. It's not possible to run the vanilla versions on One X or Series X afaik.

You certainly don't need to buy anything again.

Looks interesting, and as a coop RPG my wife and I will certainly be checking it out.
Sorry for the ancient bump, but did you guys ever play Ashen? Tempted by the Switch version for £11 at the moment.
