Main issue: I can't get past the "PRESS A TO START" screen.
Starting from a powered off xbox.
Watch Bethesda and zenimax logos.
Get to "PRESS A TO START" screen.
That is as far as I can get. The game is not frozen as I listen to the background music and watch the smoke float around.
Things I have tried:
Waiting a long time. After 15 or so min the controller will time out, so I have tried keeping it active for an hour. This did not help.
Press the home button and force quit eso and reload again. Same issue.
Completely turn off the xbox and turn it back on again. Same issue.
Reset modem, router, and xbox. Same issue.
Wait a day and try all of the above again. Same issue.
Internet connection is good, as I can watch Netflix and Hulu on the xbox. I can also play Destiny and other games.
This issue has been persistent for about a week.
