Alright friends, being brand new to the game of course I ran into issues. Went over the forums, very little help, so I troubleshot my way through. Brute force style.
Here is how I fixed my problem:
Make sure the Xbox app is installed on your computer. Not the companion app, the actual Xbox app (it will say Xbox (Beta) on the Microsoft Store). See, I never used this garbage, so I had removed it from my computer. I had to re-download it.
Next, while inside the Xbox app, go to settings and Account, and sign-in. From here, go to General and make sure "Xbox Identity Provider" is not missing. Install it if it is missing. EDIT: It will not be there if it is not missing. You will not have a message!
Download and install the Xbox Companion app, this is needed for your friends list and profile management.
No reboots necessary.
Here's some optional steps I took to make sure my experience went smoothly:
- Went to Xbox.com and signed in.
- Went to pso2.com and linked my account with Xbox.
- I did download Tweaker and pressed Update, but I don't believe this mattered or made a difference as my issue was Xbox related. Still, I want to include this here as it was a step I took in my troubleshooting.
Once you have done the above (excluding the optional steps), when launching the game you should now be prompt to sign-in using your Xbox account (I did not have the Xbox app or the Companion app running when I launched the game). You should now have your "Current User" be seen as your Xbox user ID. This account is easily managed using the Companion app, and I recommend that you do so.
Please let me know if this fixed your issue as it fixed mine.
