Quick question for you tech nerds - I’m looking for a relatively cheap 4K HDR 55” tv to go with my X1X.

This one seems insanely cheap and I’m just wondering if anyone had any insights/experience with these. The only reviews I found were Walmart customer reviews.

I’m trying to stay within the $500 range to keep the wife from getting pissed. Any input is appreciated!

^ Just different achievements and leaderboards.

Umm there is actually quite a bit different with FX3 than that, they added odd "table mastery" abilities you can level up, with perks like slow-mo and rewind. Can help when learning a tables scoring quirks.

If you can talk her up to $600 get the TCL P605 or 607. One of the lowest input lags and looks great.

I was about to say this. Honestly the only tv in that price range that I would day is worth it. If not wait an extra month or two and save the extra $100 to get the TCL P605

Thanks! I’ll try, but being a few weeks before her b-day AND Valentine’s Day makes it difficult to butter her up.

Yeah what I would be concerned about with that TV is input lag and what the peak brightness level range is which is going to affect the HDR. No one's done any testing on the regular sites I've seen like "Rtings" and what not.

Or wait a couple of months for the new and improved TCL's to come out and rumored to be at the same prices.

Thanks. I just assumed it was like other cross buy stuff and it showed up for free in the store. I haven't opened FX3 yet. Is there any point to have FX2 installed if I import to FX3?

If you have any of the tables that didn't transfer over to Pinball FX2 then that would be sole reason to keep FX2 around. I Still have FX2 on both my One and 360. Otherwise if you don't, you're fine deleting FX2 since FX3 does offer more gameplay choices and plays the same.

Umm there is actually quite a bit different with FX3 than that, they added odd "table mastery" abilities you can level up, with perks like slow-mo and rewind. Can help when learning a tables scoring quirks.

And they also kept the FX2 way without all that as it's called classic mode. In the end both games have different leaderboards & achievements.

FX3 has Wizard powers - that's what you were talking about with rewind & slowmo, also has score boost -, and upgrade bonuses, which individually level up when activated/used, that can really boost your score. They also made a practice mode where you can see how each table is with unlimited ball saves. There's also challenges to get said upgrades, 1-Ball, 5Min, Survival as well as Weekly Matchups & Tournaments. If asked, PFX3 is the ultimate choice to go with but what was said was if PFX2 should be picked up.

Grabbed prey as well though just as soon as i completed the purchase i thought to myself i should have waited to get it digital.

Gears 4 gets alot better once you get passed the robot parts in the opening.

Sea of Thieves art style initially turned me off, but what little I've read about it intrigues me. Now I wish I'd signed up for the closed beta. Oh well.

 

I'm also curious about the Pinball FX3 sale. I'm not a huge pinball fan but I'm considering the Bethesda tables. If they will be cheaper in 6 months or a year, I can wait.

Can I talk about Sea of Thieves? I played it briefly a while back and I don't know where we are with NDAs and all that at this point.

It was mentioned that this next Beta does not have an NDA attached to participation so we should be seeing some videos of gameplay soon.  For previous Betas, keep your hole shut.

So is Sea Of Thieves another one of those GaaS type things? No coherent story or plot, just sailing around interacting with other human beings in a virtual world while tempting you to buy loot crates that contain nothing but costumes and various weapon skins?

55 inch. They had an open box set in excellent condition for $100 less. Plus I had $600 in BB credit. So I ended up getting it for less than the price of a brand new 900E.

Pinball FX2 seemed to seldom go on sale the last few years so I expect the same with FX3. The $10 bundles on the FX2 went as low as 50% I if I remember correctly. The Bethesda bundle is oddly priced at $11.99 (compared to the Star Wars and Marvel Tables) so $6.59 might be the lowest it'll go but if you aren't going to play it a lot soon then you can prob wait.

 

Also, if you don't have it from FX2, you'll have to buy the FX3 Core Collection which isn't on sale right now but has been on sale in the past for $5. You need this to play all the additional tables like Bethesda.
