Picked up a Series S at shoppers yesterday...250K points ($250 worth of points) covered it with the redemption event. Shoppers is just the best value in consoles on 20x days or bonus redemption.

Giving it to my kids for Christmas so they leave my Series X alone lol

It really is. And games too.

I was able to spend 250k of points and was able to load up on Christmas gifts. The three copies of the new Pokemon, Mario Party Superstars, and a bunch of other stocking stuffer type stuff.

Even just when they have the 25k points when you spend $75 type of deals it's great value on new games. Buy a brand new game and get $25 worth of points back.

Yep, I earned most of the points buying games ect. on 20x points days and then redeemed on bonus redemption.

Yeah, it's definitely a deal aimed at those who aren't using their PS4s and don't care when they get a PS5.

I'm still looking to track down a Series X for a friend's kid.

Thanks

So the Halo Infinite campaign runs pretty poorly on Series S...it's not just 4k vs 1440P like they try and market it.

Don't shoot the messenger

1080/30 on S quality mode
4k/60 on X quality mode (120 mode available)

So better FPS and graphic fidelity in addition to the higher resolution

Not terrible on S but X is a massive upgrade no matter what TV you have

Anyone able to get an Xbox Series X from the Walmart restock? I have been trying for about 1/2 hour as one or two more keep showing up but can't get checked out. lol

So...I finally get checked out with one from Walmart then a few minutes later its cancelled. So frustrating. I figured once I had an actual order and it had gone through it would be good to go.

I tried but no luck. It looked like you could get it in your cart after the initial rush but the website had issues with payment from there.

I "think" I just got one from Bestbuy? I'll check in a bit to see if it sticks or gets cancelled but I can let you know.

NTSC has called for a nominal frequency of 60 Hz since it was introduced, I don't know where you're going to find a television with a 30 Hz refresh rate.

green text? 20 year old plasmas have 60hz

like I said don't shoot the messenger...S is actually fine for what it is I just think the marketing is misleading BIG TIME

I actually have both and know...

S is great for my kids to minecraft on and for $250 worth of shoppers points it was a STEAL. Actually some games do pretty well on it just kinda worrisome that an early flagship game would be gimped so badly.

Maybe they patch it?
