It's time to enter a 25-digit code, just for it to have one mistake, start all over again!

Gaming used to be all about queueing up in the night and cold to get your hands on a copy of the newest game.

Now, we just wait for the clock to strike, click a button and the game is yours.

No need for another case and disc, you've already got more than you actually play.

Anyway, the point is digital gaming is becoming the norm, fewer players want to wait for a physical copy etc and so digital becomes the more viable option.

With that comes the need to sometimes redeem a code, we're going to tell you how to do it on the Xbox Series X and S!
