    Not to mention there aren't many options out there regarding 8k TV's/Projectors...for now at least

    I looked at the newest Xbox stuff and it just wasn't worth the extra money. I guess maybe if you want bragging rights at the nerd cons but other than that no thanks.

    These resolution wars are stupid. People aren't buying screens large enough to take advantage, and even then if you are at a reasonable distance it won't matter. IIRC, I think for a 55 inch television at 8-10 feet the human eye can't discern the difference beyond 1080P resolution.

    Pure marketing garbage that only succeeds in driving display prices up.

    It's not going to happen. Those specs will get pulled back a bit.

    I do have to say an SSD for faster loading of things would be nice.

    I still don't understand this. How can any human who has any sort of responsibility or productivity requirement possibly have time for video games?

    Broome is the exception, not the rule. He works 24/7 for three months then is off for three months (or something crazy like that). I work something akin to 18/365.

    There's been some really great deals lately if you know where to look. I got a One X with NBA2k19 brand new under $300 shipped... after selling my existing OG One and the NBA game, I should be well under $200 for a massive upgrade in performance.

    I play a bit in the off season some years. I do use the Xbox for streaming a lot though. Not sure the last time I played a game on it.

    I wound up getting a newer version of the original for pretty cheap. Figure I'll look at the X when the next version comes out but I don't have a 4k TV so no real point.

    Maybe if you spent less time posting here you could cut those daily hours down to 8.:Poke:

    Damn dude, when did you turn into an grumpy old fuck? Are you saying you can’t conceive of people having some downtime during their day that they can fill with the leisure activity of their choice?

    My forum time is just filler while I’m waiting on other crap, listening to someone drone on the phone, etc. Productivity would go up maybe 5% if I quit but sanity would go down 50%

    No, but everywhere I look I see fat, sick, lazy bastards who should be getting out and doing something instead of rotting away playing video games, drinking Mountain Dew, and eating hot pockets all day.

    Fuck you.

    It's Diet Dew and leftover homemade (rvmade?) mostaccioli and meat sauce.
