    Holy sh!tbiscuits, that did it! Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite went from 105KB/s to 19.5MB/s just by changing that!

    Yeah I'll probably want to turn that off again when I'm done, but that's well worth knowing when it comes to downloading a 44GB game! Thanks @Hex :grin: :thumb:

    S'why I have my battle.net downloader set to 0 (unlimited speed)... not that 200Mbps is anything to shout too loudly about. :(

    ... esp. when VM have 350Mbps out in the wild & 500Mbps somewhere in the pipeline

    I would be interesting if this came with some Xbox exclusives like the Rare Replay.

    Note the bottom: You'll be notified before any future price changes.

    If you go to https://www.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-game-pass/pc-games and scroll down, in the "Join the beta" section you will see :
    PC Games
    £7.99
    £3.99/month (Beta pricing)
    DOWNLOAD THE APP JOIN THE BETA FOR £1

    So first month is £1, further months while in beta are £3.99, once it leaves beta it is £7.99.

    Dunno if the code or whatever is tied to the CPU, but I'll be getting an 'in' to this with my R5-3600... anyone want it...?

    ... I don't do consoles...

    My lad and I recently had 1 and 3 month trials and used it to play Forza horizon 4 and when the trial ended we ditched the game.

    The beta is being offered at £3.99 and my lad was tempted to pay for a couple of months to finish the game so he installed the new app and found he was able to play the game with having a subscription. Is this a bug? We have checked his account details and there are no active subscriptions or payments that have been made.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Given that it is the Windows Store... yes, it is almost certainly a bug.
