New system for Christmas

I just wanted to share that I'm pretty sure my sister is getting me either a PS4 or an Xbox One for Christmas. Most likely a PS4. I'll find out tomorrow. I told my mom one day that one of the things I wanted for Christmas was a video game, and her reply was that if my sister's got what she told my mom she was going to get, I would be very happy, and I said before on multiple occasions that I wanted to upgrade to a PS4.

Second from what Max said...and this coming from someone who had an Xbox then a Xbox 360 but went with the PS4 and haven't regretted it one bit.

Re: New system for Christmas

You may want to go online and do a search for the PS4 system software update and download it to a USB stick. If you get the PS4, you can use it to update the system without needing to connect the PS4 to the internet. A bunch of people hooking up new consoles may slow the service. There are also those out there who like to do DDOS attacks over the holidays.

DDOS = Dickheads Doing Old Shit. Yes, pre-download the update to not let those turds ruin your experience for a few days.

If the OP found out the next day and hasn't reported back, I guess we won't find out if was a XB1 or PS4. Maybe it was a Wii U

If it was a Wii or Wii U, she probably committed Seppuku/Hara–kiri

His mom misheard. It was probably just an Xbox 360 greatest hits game. From some clearance rack.

Well, I guess this thread is either dead or the OP is too damn busy playing his new system to get back to us.

Re: New system for Christmas

I'll likely get a PS4 in the new year to play Uncharted. I guess I should start my own thread for that.

I remember having this conversation with my mom when I was 10 years old as well.
