If anyone is looking for a large SD card for their switch Amazon has a 400gb sandisk card on sale for $47.99, typically $62.99.

This is not allowed unless you put up a picture of your car next to your car in a video game (Because all of us car people have found our car and made it look like the one we own at least once).
This is true. I was surprised to find Forza 2 had an Altima in it and promptly went about buying it and making it look like mine. After that it was customizing 350/370zs because I’ve always wanted one. Finally got to test drive a 2008 350 last year and sadly discovered that at 6’ 1” and not as slim as I used to be I might be too big for it.

Hoping for mass effect remaster to be announced then release shortly after so I can use my vacation to begin my insane playthrough in glorious 4k or 1080p.
Same here. If they do that “and its out today” thing I would be out 60 bucks today, especially if they release a switch version.

I know I'm in the extreme minority on this, but I try to be conscious about power consumption and environmental stuff. The One S is incredibly power efficient, max load is about 50w, compared to the launch model which used more than double that when running a game. For something like Hulu, I try to use the most efficient device I can. PS4 has always been a bit more power hungry, the slim model (which is more power efficient) is still almost double the power consumption of the One (the same is true of the revised 360 slim).
For those who are curious:
I'm very curious to see what kind of power use the new consoles have, since revisions almost always result in more efficiency.
Never really thought about the power consumption of consoles before but I applaud this effort. Considering how powerful the CPU and GPUs are in the new consoles I can see them pulling quite a bit of wattage to get the performance needed. The PS5 especially due to its reliance on boosting clock speeds to gain additional processing power.

The Digital Direct stuff isn't that prevalent, there's still plenty of codes through gifting, 3rd party retailers, etc.
EDIT: spoke too soon, it's something new they're rolling out for future bundles.
I had some gift card money and bought Crash and Spyro for $19.99 each, which comes to $39.98, and us apparently still too low to satisfy the $40 threshold for the rewards bonus. Am annoyed.
Thanks for the detailed reply! Spoiler tags for semi-OT:
SpoilerI'd like to spend $300 or less. It seems its either ~$200 or ~$400+ for the much nicer ones. I don't have a proper gaming PC right now, if I run Steam its on an ultrabook without a dedicated GPU. This would mainly be for work and also the spare X1S. I don't do much gaming in my work space, but if my girlfriend wants to use the big TV, I use the smaller setup to play online sometimes. If I had a nice gaming PC I'd probably be more open to dropping ~$500 on a monitor.
Looking at this one right now, it's in my price range and has good reviews for office work and gaming:
Apparently the pictures are not accurate, it has a very thin bezel which I'm also looking for. If I buy it and like it, I'd consider buying a second one and not using my laptop screen at all.
May want to consider a different option that has an IPS panel rather than a TN for better color reproduction and viewing angels.

A coded copy in the box is preferable. Got a copy of Jedi Fallen order because our youngest didnt want it and it came bundled with his xbox. Bought him a version of Rainbox Six Siege that came with a couple of the season passes for the code.
