    The great xbox search has begun! Today I decided im going to finally put my mind to it and look out to buy this xbox since I just * my controller. Spent the morning at work signing up to stock alert the lot. Ill get one by end January surely...


    Sorry but shamefully went into.... sports direct this afternoon :56: sorry but socks are that cheap there disposable... But there i look up, and see a guy walk down stairs like a beam of light holding a new xbox. No I didn't mug him :56:

    Strange why a guy was shopping about sports direct holding an xbox and no game shops in this retail park. Anyway went upstairs so she could buy trail shoes for running. I pottered about because I was board. Then I seen it, hid in the back corner of sports direct.. a * game store! * :56: ni signs outside or anything. So * it i went and asked the guy like a dodgy drug deal if they had any. Jackpot :56: day one of my search and sorted! Yassss!!!! Went back to her smiling with my new xbox. She knew dinner out was cancelled Iv got games to install :56:

    Moral of this story? I'm a lucky * :56:

    This was 15 mins to closing and they had stock left if anyone needs it. It was the sports direct next to Edinburgh costco so if you head out early you might get one aswel.

    Superb luck. I got 2 last year luckily, games are a bit thin on the ground atm. Got the new battlefield and im not impressed to be honest needs a lot of work. But Stalker is out next year which im hoping will be worth buying.

    Iv not even got a 4k tv yet will need to save up for one but warzone * me off with its mega slow loading times. All my pals in the game while I'm still on a black screen hearing the plane sound.. now I'm in with a minute before the game starts. Some machine. Noticed killing is easier aswel and I get lower ping lobby's. Coincidence? Hmm.

    Transfer times are stupid though. Took me about 24 hours to transfer my games across. Dont know why but my old original xbox would never download faster than 30mb and even the transfer was the same. The new one is downloading fast as my network allows so donno what was wrong with that old one.

    I'll be getting back into pubg come January aswel. Its going free to play for everyone forever so hopefully finally get humans and not bots. Also no play dough buildings on the X wooo!

    Different league to the old console for sure. I like the series x but i go between that and my pc which again is another animal to my xbox. Suppose it helps being able to grab a 12gb rog strix 3080ti gpu altough at a majorly over inflated price lol

    Just sold out. That was in stock for a long time. Stock levels must be improving. Either that or amazon saved a load for before Christmas.

    I know someone who has one, he loves it. It doesn't have 4k, but not everyone has a 4k TV anyway. It plays everything and I've been told it's quite fast.

    It’s rapid. Depends what you want to do though. I’m more than happy with it.

    Loving the series S and especially the loading times on Forza Horizon 5. Bought it at a good deal and mainly because it's * to find a series X.
    Hate the ridicilous tiny hard drive space though. Have to keep moving games around from my external hd to the console and back.
    It does plays the the Xbox One games that aren't optimized for the Series S/X from the the external hard drive though
