StormSurge

Got One!!

Recommended Posts

I usually always miss out on presales for popular items but I’m buying the lede. 

The most amazing thing about this is that I somehow managed to keep a $400 gift card balance on Amazon for over a year, specifically for this purpose. 

I still have time to increase that amount & have it fully paid for by shipping time. 

This will be my first launch console since the Dreamcast. I’m not overly excited for this as I was for the DC but I’m sure that will change as launch day approaches.

I did! I received it on release day, which was a very pleasant surprise.

I'm upgrading from the One X, so I don't notice that much of a graphical upgrade yet. I haven't tried any optimized games for the Series X yet (Cold War, AC Valhalla, NBA 2K21) but I will soon.

What I have noticed is how incredibly fast it is, loading games, switching between games, etc. and how equally quiet it is. Modern Warfare made my One X scream like a jet engine. This thing is stealthy.

I probably wouldn't have tried to upgrade so quickly if I didn't have that Amazon gift card earmarked for this but I certainly don't regret it and am looking forward to what's coming in the future.

Once I test some of those games (even Forza Horizon 4), I'll give an update.

Did you get it yet?  How is it?  Out of the two, I'd probably get the XBox, but I'm not really in the market for either right now.

Me either.  I sort of lost interest in modern gaming in general.  I think I'm done collecting modern hardware.  The only consoles I'm after are a PS3, Wii U, and Switch but I'm in no position to consider any new hardware for the time being.  I'm also satisfied with my PC I use for Steam games.

Congrats on getting yourself a new XBOX, StormSurge.

Edit: I need to be more specific on what I mean about modern gaming in general.  First the XBOX One is a nice system but most of the games that have come out for it have either not kept my interest or interested me at all.  I love Forza, enjoy Terraria, Borderlands, Mudrunners, and Farming simulators. I enjoy Farm Together, too.  

But what I mean by "modern gaming" is aimed at the new XBOX and PS5 consoles.  I have not seen content that interests me.  That's all I am trying to say.  There are modern games out there I like...just not enough to warrant the purchase of a new machine.  Switch has more titles that interest me than the new XBOX and PS5 consoles.
