That is a badass console and controller scheme. Love the Elite but why didn't they put the Elite in the Halo-schemed console?

I would want both...which I guess I just answered my own question.

Both are probably going to be impossible to find.

I couldn't find the Xbox one thread, but I know there's still a lot of folks out there who still play Xbox One.
Yep, I was out of town for a few days, and now my console won’t display anything past the welcome screen. I’d love to retire this thing, but haven’t been able to score a Series X yet. And FTR I’m not on the insider program.

I tried to get one from WalMart, spent a while with the fun Press & Hold button, but was never successful. Guess I'll stick with my October console?

The themed console is $550 and that controller is $200. Put them together and it's a $700 bundle (assuming you take out the other controller). That is pretty pricey.

That is why I was hoping for a bundle discount.

I put no stock in whatever date Walmart is tossing out there. It'll get here when it gets here, I'm just glad this one's for me and not a gift as it would suck not knowing if you're actually going to receive an item by a specific date.

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Usually games are always there at MS store prior to free on GP or is this first time on newer generation, like it goes bc on 9/1? I couldn’t even find Zone of the Enders which I’m interested in. Should be there to purchase at least, no?

And it just showed up on my doorstep, Saturday morning. No advance notice, no shipping notification. I did get an email that it had been delivered. Good thing I wasn’t out of town this weekend. WTF Walmart?

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Man it was easy to set up. And unlike the PS5 this console worked out of the box! With all my pins and tabs and everything, just like if my XOX was still there.
That said, it doesn’t feel very different from the XOX so far. The controller is like nearly exactly the same, so is the interface. I like the load times and quick resume. I do think the lack of haptic feedback in the controller was a huge missed opportunity and will always make the PS5 my default console for next gen games on multi platform, unless they’re Game Pass, of course.

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

I was able to get as far as the checkout screen on Gamestop for the Halo Console. Kept telling me the order couldn't be processed due to high volume. I kept refreshing but got kicked and the next screen said out of stock. Its bullshit that they can do that when you've reached the checkout screen

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Now Chaosbane on the Sony system has both a PS4 and PS5 version without a free upgrade. How does it work on the Xbox?

Edit : I see now. This is the base game, not the Slayer edition and not optimized for Series S/X. Lame.
