I totally am with you on reasons to wait. If the hdmi change wasn’t just a firmware update, then I’d not consider it. From what I’ve seen thy are already saying the update will be in the spring.

If they deliver on the update, it is a great choice at a great price. If the update never comes or doesn't full resolve the issue, it could mean some buyers remorse.

How old?


3 kids ranged from 6-11. Minecraft is pretty easy but that’s a Microsoft licensed game now so it’ll be on game pass forever?

Any of the lego games?

Rocket League? New Super Lucky’s Tale? Astroneer could be fun. Did you get Minecraft Dungeons yet? Those are all on Gamepass.

Your kids are prob too old, but my 4 year old cannot get enough of Disneyland Adventures and Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure.

Yeah they’ve done some LEGO games and rocket league as well as Minecraft dungeons on my PS4. Sounds like game pass will keep them covered for the time being.

Terraria is pretty good I hear from my own Minecraft kid

New Super Luckys Tale is a great platformer

The 2 Disneyland games are there also (Rush and Disney adventure)

Goat Simulator for some wacky fun

Rare collection has the Banjos and some more cool stuff

My 4yo enjoyed helping me play through Spongebob Remastered and we are working on Spyro trilogy now. New Super Lucky was a hit too.

I found Abzu and Rime to be family friendly as well.

Edit: Untitled Goose Game might be a good one too

Posted in the pre-order thread, but didn't get any responses.
 
Succeeded in placing an order with Best Buy for a Series X, which will be ready for Saturday. Since the MS Store isn't going to ship until December, it's hard to say no. I may cancel Best Buy, though.
 
Does anyone know how canceling a preorder with Microsoft works when store credit is used but not for all of it? Will that credit be put back on my account? Or is it reimbursed another way? I figure the net out of pocket is basically the same and what can I say, I'm feeling really impatient, especially in quarantine. That or I'll sell it to a friend for cost.

 

Hey I can answer this! I Cancelled my Series X last month at Best Buy and got the money back in my Paypal account after a week or so

I cannot offer you firsthand experience, but it's incredibly difficult for me to believe (both from a legal and business perspective) that it works any other way than your credit is refunded as credit, and the amount charged to your card is refunded to the card.

 

Totally agree with you about quarantine, it's probably the main reason I own as Series X right now.  :P

I grabbed one.  Supposedly, GameStop will be selling these three-month cards for $19.99 (limit one) on Black Friday.  As much as I despise GameStop, I plan to use my monthly $5 reward from my Pro membership on one more to get it down to $15.  Or at least that's the plan.

Depends how much you value $3 since it's on physical cards only at GS, which means braving the stores until they run out of cards. I just settled for the BB deal since it's a gift.

Kinda bummed. Was waiting for RE3 to go on sale at Best Buy so I could save $5 and get the steelbook. Well apparently when it went on sale they pulled the steelbook... Bow I think I might want to just spend the extra $4 to have it digitally. Shame

This is why I always pre-order the game and have the steel shipped to me separately so I can return the game sans case. I picked the game back up at this reasonable remaster price of $15 and have both in hand now. Way I see it, I guaranteed myself the deal in advance by not trusting BB to hold up their end. Time and again, I'm never proven wrong when it comes to this.

+1 on Terraria. That game is both parts light-weight and deep enough if you really get into it. I couldn't stand Minecraft but love Terraria to death.

What’s the difference between the Costco TV and the Best Buy TV

Costco: Sony 65" Class - X90CH Series - 4K UHD LED LCD TV. Model: XBR65X90CH $969.99

Best Buy: Sony 65" Class - X900H Series LED 4K UHD Smart Android TV. Model: XBR65X900H $999.99

I like to buy TVs at Costco, just wondering if anyone knows the difference.

I could have sworn that returning the game sans case leaves you with a $10-20 charge for the case itself as it's handled as it's own SKU in the system no?

Same exact TV. Costco has special model numbers to prevent price matching.

I'm sure you can buy a reading skill upgrade from EA. Might even be on sale for Black Friday!

Thoughts on the Android TCLs? Our cheap 4-series Roku version has a horizontal line across it now after ~3 years of use. Looking for a replacement in the $200-300 range.

The Android interface is inferior to Roku so if you are able to get the same TV with the Roku interface then I'd go for that.

Same TV like others said but at Costco you also get a 5 year manufacturer warranty.

If they're on the same transaction, yes. Picking up at store and having the other shipped separates them into two transactions. Dirty little secret that has worked for years now. ;)

Not a deal, but kind of a big deal to me: a year and a half ago I gave up on Sekiro after getting stuck on the Genichiro and Corrupted Monk illusion boss fights. Thanks to it running at 60fps on the Series X, I pushed through and beat them both! Now I can keep playing (until the next unwinnable boss fight, that is). Almost worth the $500 entry fee just for this. ...almost.

Thanks for all of the replies. A good friend of mine was planning on buying one sometime in January but I think I'm just going to sell the spare one to him at cost and everything will work out. Definitely easier than stressing out about customer service or waiting for payments to be reimbursed.

Which also means I get my new system on Saturday!

Does the EA Access 1 year code still covert to 4 months of GamePass Ultimate? Or is that done for?

I’m just trying to add to my current subscription cheapest way possible.

1 year codes of EA Play do indeed convert to 4 months of Game Pass Ultimate. It was a glitch that converted 1 year of EA Play to 1 year of GPU that got shut down. I went this route as well and bought a code from CDKeys for about $27.

I think it was already mentioned, but since I don’t remember where I’ll just ask again: what’s the normal wait period for the punchcard (spend $50 on BF games) to update? I bought ~$55 worth, pre-tax, of Xb1 games from the designated sale page and my punchcard is showing $0/50

Here’s what got me there in case anybody is curious
Control Ultimate Edition $19.99
Blasphemous $12.49
Just Cause 3: XXL Edition $5.99
Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy 13.99
Virginia $2.49

Some others have claimed to receive the credit immediately, but my case was similar to your situation.  In my case, even after contacting them via email, it took a full 72 hours to receive my credit.  It happened earlier today, and it did not occur all at once (for whatever reason).  Meaning, at one point I was given credit for a single game, and then later on for the whole amount.

Strange question for you but does the Spyro trilogy show as one game or 3 in your games
