I decided to purchase a digital license key, in the hopes of discontinuing my game pass subscription at some point and time, and still be able to use it with a permanent license to my xbox account.
Even though it says its xbox series s/x compatible. i think i am regretting the purchase unless there is a work around, or maybe at minimum downgrade to a series S machine, so i can use it on a local storage medium.
I did originally buy a disc copy, which clearly stated XBOX SERIES X on the dis label, thought maybe a bad burn. So I decided to go the route of a key thinking that the risk of it failing again was minimal, not so.
Personally I think its bad for business to sell a product, claim that it will work on a machine. and turns out it won’t. Hopefully they will update this - it seems deceptive to lead the customer in believing that it should work and it doesn’t.
