I seriously hope no one bought a Series S here. Reports are showing that some games are running sub HD to hit 60fps

Sounds like fake news, homie. I’ll wait until digital foundry says so.

As a matter of fact, months ago Microsoft released footage of gears 5 running at 120 FPS on the series s. You fell for a Japanese disinformation campaign!

Lots of developers are having a hard time with the Series S right now. Here's a good video. im waiting for DFs official breakdown myself but this is concerning for people who are getting an S and expecting straight up 1440p.

series x on the way. it was a good sigh of relief to finally see $673 leave my bank account.

   dont know if i wanna go for a 3 year extended warranty. normally i wouldnt, but its a launch unit, plus im a slight bit wary of another RROD style fiasco.  i think theyve learned their lesson with that,  but i still dont know if i want to take my chances with a launch unit

i bought some protection plan off sony when i bought my ps4 and that all turned out to be for nothing.   dunno if i wanna go that route again, but its not all that expensive either.

They will fly it overnight. The facility I work at dispatches trucks about as far as DC and anything further is flown overnight.

Amazon hasn’t even shipped mine yet, but I’m not worried because we have an amazon warehouse in my city so I’m hoping mine is just sitting there and will ship tomorrow or Tuesday.

Considering Walmart already delivered them to thousands of people last week I wish Microsoft would just tell all the retailers to send em out.

I’m getting the LG Nanocell 90. It doesn’t have the best HDR, but it can run games at 4K 120 FPS and was only a G so I pulled the trigger. It’s better than what I have.

Star Wars squadrons is going to run 4K 120fps, it’s going to be sick. 

Even if it is the game that makes me nerd rage harder than I’ve ever raged in my life.

Eh. I have last years model and its ok. Its better than this years model. Its nice cause it has 2.1 but I use it primarily for the living room cause its a bright room. 

 

I use my OLEDS for my game room and bedroom. 

 

You should have waited till black friday and got the CX.

First thing I'm gonna play Tuesday is Dead Space. I've been wanting to play the trilogy again so why not get auto HDR involved.

 

Thursday I'm gonna hammer Demons Souls until I chit myself.

The 65 inch is 1800. I wanted all the video game specific **** because that’s all I use the tv for and my wife wanted a bigger tv.

This was the best fit for the **** we wanted. I didn’t want to spend 800 more so we went the nanocell 90, m8.

It’s still a step up from what we already have.

Gonna try to snag a ps5 online this Thursday but I'm not really expecting to actually get one.

Don’t worry, a lot of peoples financial situations have become more dire. Someone will flake on their preorder, you just need to be hitting that F5.

Also, Target and Amazon will have them online. Not sure about Best Buy and Gamestop but they are only for online to ship to home or online pick up at store. NO WALKINS.

You should be getting a shipping notification soon if you order your Xbox from Amazon. FYI

apparently this kind of chit is normal with amazon. some day one buyers are posting about getting their orders pushed back.   others who were able to get in on the 2nd wave were able to get their deliveries scheduled for launch day.

seems like preordering from amazon was a total crap shoot

I warned people about this. When the switch preorders went up my order got delayed a week when it came time to ship. I've had nothibg but issues with release day delivery on chit. 

 

Thankfully I got in store orders for both consoles. My Amazon Series X will be here today from Amazon so hopefully my PS5 will be too. If not I still have my gamestop orders.

If you have a grievance related to Amazon, i suggest you take it up with @PlatinumClegg or @Nyte

Jusy picked up my Series X from gamestop. They were turning people away like mad. They had 3 extras for people who didn't preorder. Now just gotta wait for the one from Amazon.

its not through amazon.  its through fedex, ordered through the microsoft store

nyte and clegg are off the hook on this one.  but amazon needs to get their chit together too.   they took away more preorders than microsoft could provide, and many of them are getting some heartwarming emails telling them they gotta wait a few weeks, some even all the way up until christmas.   thank god i didnt order there. 

there was no consistancy either.  some people who ordered day one are scheduled to get theirs in a couple weeks. other people got in on the next batch of preorders like a week or two later and get theirs today.

I recently learned that Teddy Roosevelt became a fan of cricket during his presidency and learned to play the game with an English pro player.

I support removing him from Rushmore now.

Foglets.

It’s a holiday for the USPS, but only for career employees. They make the non-career betas work it. 

I doubt FedEx and UPS even acknowledge it at all here. They’ll be delivering.

This LG might not be the best tv they make, but it definitely makes the ****ty Samsung we had grab the ****ing comb. I’m quite pleased with it. 

It will be interesting to see if SX makes a big difference on top of it. The OX already did 4K, so I’m expecting the graphics improvements to be minimal, unless Ray tracing makes a huge difference that I am unaware of.

That 60/120 FPS should be the biggest difference, but a lot of the games I play already prioritized 60 FPS.
