I bought GTAV last night (it is on 50% discount), and then this morning, I read news that GTAV will be offered on Game Pass shortly. https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/6/22369834/grand-theft-auto-v-xbox-game-pass-xcloud

Good thing I was checking on the status of my headset (same here, have no news no updates on shipping), and then I saw that can refund digital purchase (yay). I was too used to PSN's no refund policy, so it did not occur to me that I could request for a refund on purchased Xbox digital titles. The whole process was simple and within a few clicks, my request was raised. Even more surprising was that within 1 min, my request for refund was approved via email.

Working in office this week (4 days then 1 day WFH), so hopefully when I am WFH that day, my headset gets delivered.

Nice. Can’t wait to finally play gta v too, and don’t have to turn down the volume at home once I get my headset too.

Doubt so, based on the experience with the headset and IIRC when the Series X launched it was also 1-2 days after the estimated date. So for you should be 14-15 April :)

Xbox Wireless Headset
Quantity 1
Estimated delivery: 07 April 2021
Delivery Method: Standard

The "Estimated delivery" to Speedpost to be exact.
When I got the SMS from Speedpost, got me all excited until I read the part where your parcel is on its way to US (instead of to me), jit tau sian jit pua.

Then Speedpost don't allow the option to leave the parcel at the door, so have to go to the nearest Singpost PO to pick it up if not at home to receive it, double sianz.

Pop Station possible? That's more convenient.

For those that bought the wireless headset and find the bass over-powering, and the mids too "muddy", try the equalizer settings recommend here:

My headset delivered today. From playe they use J&T
NICE! Again the official vendor is slower other retailers. My Speedpost tracking number says HK at the end and there is a 'cross border Singapore' in the Service Type so maybe shipping from HK and need to wait even longer.
