    Xbox Series X Games won't start - cannot press 'A' or proceed past first screen


    Hey. Any help would be appreciated.

    Way too often i can't start playing any of my Xbox Series X/S game.

    It will load to the "start" menu of whatever game but it will not allow me to proceed further.

    I can use Xbox button to return to dash, nothing wrong with controller. Issue is not there with non Xbox Series X/S games.

    The only way i can resolve it is by doing a full shutdown and restarting.

    I am on the Alpha Skip Ahead programme.

    Any help please.

    Thanks Xbox Series X Games won't start - cannot press 'A' or proceed past first screen :)

    :)

    Halo: MCC [Digital Copy] freezing issue

    *because it won't let me edit the message, pressing start to proceed, or even A, causes the game to freeze and force a launch exit

    It seems to be working today, but the B button won't return you to the previous page, instead I've had to press X and go all the way back from the first page into a series to watch the next episode

    External SSD on Xbox Series X?

    The games on the SSD will run fine on it. You won't need to move them to the Xbox Series X storage to play them. Only the Xbox Series X games & games optimized for Series X will need to be played on the consoles own storage.

    Red Dead Revolver on Xbox 360

    Insert the disc you want to install, then on the Home screen instead of pressing A to play, press X to install. Original Xbox games cannot be installed and you do need the disc in the drive in order to play the games once you have them installed.
