New Lockdown - TIer 5 for all :(

Presuming you all saw this, I'm of the opinion it is needed and I think school's closing though painful was needed given the risk it posed. Hopefully this time will be a bit easier mentally as many of us now have support bubbles, plus there are some services still open that were not last time - Garden Centres/Recycling - so there is a little more to do.

I'm sorry if you're affected work wise, I didn't see any changes to the furlough scheme which is still running until April 2021 so if you are sent home now do please direct your employer here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-for-wage-costs-through-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme

Its finding one thats the problem now mate.

They might be just doing. Previously pre-ordered consoles first.
Keep checking this daily. Iíve found a couple of friends Series S consoles using this with random restocks

DD gave me that link, I set up alerts on my phone and email and Amazon came through for me. Even delivered it a week early!

I saw a message on another forum that Argos do have stock but its store by store, maybe give a few a call?

I have been looking for one for my lad, what are peoples honest opinions?

I got a Series S in the end, I'm very happy  :)

If you are fully 4k ready, then the Series X is the one to get. Its a very powerful console. As my TV (and Surround Sound) really needs upgrading to 4k I went with the Series S.

I also got Gamepass Ultimate - I loaded my Xbox Live to run for 3 years (about £80), and then used the 'Gamepass for a £1' option so I have full service inc EA Play until 2024 :D

The only niggle so far was as it doesn't have a disc drive I had to buy a couple of games digitally but I got them on sale so not too bad. I did also buy a 1tb SSD to put games on.

Overall, yeah I'm pleased though Id imagine in a couple of years I'll do a full 4k upgrade but this is fine for now.

1st day of December, I've no advent calender though  :(

What's on your wishlists? Mine are Xbox Series S and Cyberpunk 2077. Fingers crossed C77 does release as I can get that on Xbox One and it'll be upgraded for Series S later  8)

I'd be interested in anyone's feedback on using it with older A/V equipment, I'm looking at HDMI Splitters with Optical Toslink Extractor - something which will take multiple HDMI inputs and output as one (with an optical audio out too). Or am I better off finally replacing my now near 10 year old amp.

I got one. Really loving it so far.
Super fast and quick resume is amazing. I forgot about it and load up my xbox from cold boot,into assassins creed Valhalla and it took me by surprise that I was stood where I had left it the night before.
Looking forward to next week to see what the ps5 is like.

Did you get the Series X? My TV/HomeCinema would need a full upgrade to see the full benefit so I'm going for a Series S for now if I can find one of course!

I've been seeing a lot of good feedback about the loading times/boot times, 1 article reckoned we'd save 20 days this generation in regained loading times.  8)

So because of that thing I'd expect a lot of peep's fire plans have gone up in smoke, anyone still doing anything at home?

I've got a wood burner and a load of fireworks to annoy the neighbours with come thursday, looking forward to it  ;D
