    My son desperately wants to play the Black Ops series but we have a PS4. I understand those games are not available on PS4 and I wanted to get the best advice from the experts (you all) on which system to purchase upon which we might also be able to play that and any other non PS4 titles.

    Thanks for any help.

    BO1 and 2 are backwards compatible on Xbox 1. I own a PS4 but routinely steal my children's XBOX 1 to play both

    Is X Box One the latest version of Xbox?

    Well, yes and no. The latest version is the one x which is an updated version if the one with 4K capability and some other bells and whistles. But if he's just looking to play the BO series then that's a bit of overkill. About $300 worth overkill

    He’s become quite the video game expert and has informed me (he’s 8) that BO3 is just not as good as the first two.

    All of this surprises me because he’s never played them. I think he’s seen them on YouTube or something.

    Thanks for your help I appreciate it. Target has the XBone s for $189. May pick that up for his big gift.

    So just to be clear if I buy Black Ops for the 360 it will work on the XBox one s?

    I did a quick search and couldn't find a decent "general video games question" thread so I am cheating and using this one for my dumb questions. Does anyone have any experience with Left 4 Dead 2? I ask because I bought it to play and wasn't paying attention and purchased the XBox Live version, which sucked because I wanted to play it local co-op and I don't have XBox Live. Is there a version that would work better local co-op so that I don't have to go through the chaos of having my buddy create a new user? I was looking at this one:



    Sorry for the dumb question but I am not the most tech savvy person in the world.
