The jump from the One X to the Series X has been awesome. Yes, lack of games hurt, as usually a Forza is close to launch to show off the new hardware, but Immortals Fenyx Rising plays so much better on the Series X as does Valhalla. 

 

Forza Horizon 4....on an OLED, jaw dropping, but the formula is stale for me. Control....holy wowsers, great game.

Any word on when Microsoft will get a restock? I’ve had the money sitting in my Microsoft account since December to buy, but haven’t seen a restock yet?

 

I'm in the same boat. I've got ~$500 in rewards and discounted gift cards sitting on my account, just waiting for Microsoft Store to have Xbox Series X in stock.

I’ve got $566 expiring between April 12-26 so I feel your pain. I’ve been checking the site constantly with no luck

If it’s credit from gift cards, loaded via credit card, etc. then it won’t expire. If it’s promotional, i.e. rockstar can codes or MS rewards points redemptions then the credit will expire 90 days from redemption. You can check your credit balance and it will tell you if any is expiring and when. If you check via the web you have to click on “details” to see the expiring balances

Thanks, I think I’m good. These were discount gift cards I purchased.

I got a Series X in-stock alert today, 45 minutes before my work shift was over. Of course it happened to be for the Microsoft online store. And of course they were gone by the time I was out and could access the store. Last time series x was in stock at MS before today was the 9th I believe. That’s a long time between restocks

Didn't want to buy a bundle but I'm tired of waiting and had gamestop trade in to use. Hope to get lucky and find gamestop that allows return of bundle items

Man I wish I felt the same. I have both the One X and the Series X and I can't help but think the Series X is just a giant paperweight for me. I just don't see the justification for purchasing this system when there aren't console exclusives that really take advantage of the power.
Full disclaimer: I don't have valhalla, watch dogs. I have an unplayed Fenyx Rising, so maybe I should try that. Also Cyberass 2077 plays much better on it but I don't think that game is very inspiring either lol.

 

I'm just waiting on Halo Infinite... I hope I'm happy with my purchase by then.

I think the quality of life upgrade of SSD, and even minor frame rate improvements have been a life changer. Most of that benefit could have been realized if they had just used SATA 3 and a standard SSD in the last gen though. But I'm glad to have it now.

Looks like the Series X is only available with the Xbox All Access.

Sucks you have to get it with all access only. No need for 2 years of Xbox game pass

a sata SSD standard on PS5/XSX should have been the option; then the user could upgrade the 1tb base offering to 2tb, 4tb, 8tb themselves.    then NVME could have been for PS5Pro/XSX+ or later; I would have preferred the money go towards GPU/CPU/RAM than NVME.    NVME size storage upgrades now are just too pricey to be worth it.

I gotta think some of that is planned so by the time the “slim” is available (usually 3 years into the cycle), NVME will be cheap enough so that you can have 2TB at the same price point.

I don’t know real world performance but being able to say they have the latest in storage tech was important.

BB drops are a nightmare in my area. It's the same with the Target. Constantly tells you it's not available in your store despite showing in stock at the store you are trying to buy from. I have seen people that just spam the checkout button no matter what message pops up and they say it goes through. Some sit there for 5 minutes constantly clicking checkout. I am going to try that strategy next time for a PS5. I am actually trying to get a Series X for a friend but need to use the MS store because I have credit there. I missed the last drop but was able to get it in my cart so next drop from the MS, I should be able to get it no problem assuming I am sitting in front of my computer and know there is going to be a drop since my twitter notifications on my phone don't work for anyone I follow.
