Windows Phone 8 Xbox Game Issue
Don’t know whether you are all aware of this or not but the WP8 Mobile Phones are having an Xbox Live game issue, I have contacted them but had no correspondence
The issue is that even if you have loads of FREE space on your phone & try to download an Xbox Live title it cones up with a message saying “You’ve reached the storage limit on your phone. Please clear some space, then try again.” DO NOT do this as there is no need to, all you have to do is sign into your WP account on your CPU or Tab but NOT on your mobile phone & the select to send it to your device for download/re-download & it will download fine
PayPal Issues on Xbox Live
If you have purchased any items over Xbox Live the past couple of months I would go back & check your transaction history as there is some issues with charging for example I purchased Red Dead Redemption & Dead Island this month that where charged at £4.49 on the Xbox 360 console yet I checked my PayPal account today like I do any other Friday & I had been charged £8.99 for each one so I went on the Xbox.xom website & requested a call back, within in 40 seconds I had a call on my mobile & was refunded the overcharge with no hassle
New Dashboard Update
To all that are on Xbox Live or have had a new Xbox in the past 6 months should check all your puchased games as there are a few issues that Microsoft are ignoring.
Your game purchases have been deleted & you haven’t been refunded for them, here is a list of games I’m aware of:
Streets of Rage 2
If you have purchased these full games I’d go & check them as they have now deleted your full game purchase & now you only have the trial version apart from Double Dragon as that has been completely deleted.
You need to contact Microsoft for a full refund o these items & any others they have taken from your transactions.
Samsung Ditch Ativ Tab
Samsung has ditched its Ativ Tab Windows RT tablet, blaming Microsoft for failing to explain Windows RT tech.
The company will not sell the tablet, which it launched at IFA in August, in the US & it’s not looking good for the UK either.
Samsung senior vice president Mike Abary said there would be a lot of heavy lifting still needed to educate the customer on what Windows RT was & that heavy lifting was going to require pretty heavy investment so Samsung decided the Ativ Tab wasn’t a strong enough product to be worth all that marketing moolah, so they won’t launch it in America.
I contacted Samsung to ask if it will come to the UK, but its representatives there couldn’t tell me either way at the moment.
So please check back for any more developments as I will update page if I hear anything from them.
Windows RT is a cut-down version of Windows 8 where you can only install apps from the Windows Marketplace app store.
‘RT’ stands for Runtime, the Microsoft tool programmers use to make apps for the Marketplace, hardly a good consumer friendly term :-/
Here’s a completely baffling chart MS created to explain the differences between RT and Windows 8, Designed to run on the kinds of power efficient ARM chips you find in phones and tablets, it’s a hybrid of proper Windows & Windows Phone.
Microsoft’s own Surface tablet runs in the old fashioned desktop environment, which isn’t available for any other program.
Companies that make Windows devices, including Acer, Dell and HP, complained when the Surface was launched why would you buy a very similar product from a company that doesn’t make the software.
So really Windows should of just made a Windows Phone Tablet & left Windows 8 alone as a Laptop/PC OS not a Tablet as we all know & love WP & to have that as a Tablet form that would of been excellent.
