  1. The game received an update today and now the achievements are working. However the ones I got before the update are showing in game but not on my achievements.
  2. I can confirm that you can still continue to play the Win8 version (with 200g) even after you update and play the Win10 (with 1000g) version. I upgraded my desktop to Windows 10 but not my old notebook. AoE:CS was updated to 1000g in my desktop. I tried to start it on my notebook but it was an old version that needed updated. I downloaded it again from Win8 store and was able to resume play. So if you have access to a Win8 machine you can continue to play all 4 versions.
  3. I played it a little bit yesterday and got 1000g. At first The achievements were delayed a bit, meaning that they would pop 5 to 10 minutes after you completed The requirements, but later they starter to pop at proper time. You can get the 1000g is less than 1 hour. Just start a 2 player local game and let the first player buy everything a win all auctions. You can also make other players design, so the 6 players game and your rule game took less than a minute each.
  4. I had a friend coming from China last week, he will be here for a few weeks. I asked him if he could bring me one console and he told me yes. It was bought retail, at Suning, and it costs 4299 yuan (official price) which converts to US$ 700 (expensive!). I do not believe any retail chain will send the console overseas, and even if they are allowed to do that, so the only option right now is someone buying it in China and bring over (I do not know if it is allowed to send it by mail too, plus it is quite heavy). I will give more details later if you wish. I can make a step-by-step tutorial of the first boot/activation (everything is in Chinese) but I do not know if it is worth to anyone else considering the SMS check activation.
  5. With the Xbox One launching in new territories, we will start to see some region exclusive games. Right now, China marketplace has two of them: - Naughty Kitties (free-to-play, [email protected], endless runner) - Neverwinter Online (free-to-play, download only, RPG). And please, Spartan Assault is no shmup, it is a twin-stick shooter.
  6. You should create a Xbox One games section. Only available in China: - Naughty Kitties - Neverwinter Online Soon to be released only in Japan: - Puyo Puyo Tetris - Chaos Child
  7. Success!!!! It had a few quirks, but now I may be one of the first owners of a Chinese Official Xbox One outside China (I live in Brazil). And it is working with my previous US gamertag too. Some pictures: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/stampbr/xbox1-1.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/stampbr/xbox2-1.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/stampbr/xbox3-1.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/stampbr/xbox4.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/stampbr/xbox5.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/stampbr/xbox6.jpg As you can see from the last Picture, I already got an achievement in Naughty Kitties and it shows in my gamertag. However, since my other games are not released in China, there are no boxshots displayed only names. Xbox.com does not seems to work outside China, I get no action buttons. But marketplace is fine on the Xbox One, I already downloaded Naughty Kitties (F2P) and Neverwinter is on my queue. No VPN is needed, there is no IP check. Neverwinter is included in the package, the system comes with download cards for Forza, Powerstar Golf, Kinect Sports Rivals and Neverwinter Online. There is no physical release for Neverwinter, it is also available for free in the marketplace (the card that comes with the system has some special edition itens). If anyone wants I can provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to set it up, since everything is on Chinese. But the catch: you do need a valid mobile number from a Chinese Operator to register the console with BesTV (MS partner in China). The system will ask for it on the first boot and send a SMS code to the number provided. You need to enter this code to continue. No charges or anything, just a check if you are a Chinese resident (I have friends over there so I could ask them). Each mobile number can register only 5 consoles. Now back to the world of Chinese gaming!

  9. Thanks for your answer about the chinese xbox one. I cannot read chinese, do I just assumed it. There were 2 chinese options in language (I assume one os traditional and the other simplified). One has only one option as country and the other has two.

     

    Do you know if I will be able to access the chinese Marketplace outside China if I use a chinese console?

     

    Another question: Which are the payment options? Will pre paid cards be available to buy? chinese xbox one.

  10. El Chavo Kart just got a disc NTSC release in Brasil as "Chaves Kart".
  11. Better take a look at the last 2 pages, there is at least: Microsoft Bingo Disney Little Mermaid Hexic
  12. You need a Disney Account, not a "Disney Infinity" account. It is the same account you use in any Disney services, including Disney Hotels and Parks. But it requires it because the actual game DI on the consoles logs what you do and what toys you have using this account, to share it between devices (consoles, handhelds, PCs, web). So to play the Win8 you need to have at least one toy in your account. When the game launched it could not even contact the Disney services, thus it was unplayable. Now the servisse is working (you can create your account if needed) but the Live part is still no operational. It logs in, but I tried to gain some achievements and no one pop out.
  13. Sesame Street is out in the US marketplace, US$ 6.99. Edited: I bought it. It is a Live title, asks for login, but does not have any achievements! And two DLCs packs are available, each with 2 episodes (main game has already 4).
  14. So did you add your paypal account or just payed using paypal (giving in a Wellington address)? Because if you choose to use your paypal account it does not prompt you any address, I guess it verifies with is the address you have set in paypal.
  15. Because you are trying to buy them in a region other than NZ. I download both "free" versions from NZ and switched back the region settings to Canada to buy the game, since I have to way of payment in NZ. I was able only to buy the Vaio version, not the Toshiba. MS changed something in the payment system lately, I cannot add a payment option in another marketplace, even using paypal (I guess they are checking from the country in Paypal settings). Some months ago I was able to set paypal for different versions (UK, GER, France) in my phone to get games from that regions. It is not working anymore. I can buy stuff using paypal in that marketplaces, but I cannot add paypal as a payment option in any other marketplace.
