    Need to upgrade my TV, what should I be looking for to maximize my Series X experience?

    If it has a 120hz refresh rate it would tout that in the Amazon description. That and 4K are the big things

    I'm really digging Rogue Company. Anyone else try it yet?

    Got into sniper elite 4. There's something relaxing about crawling around and blowing heads off

    Damn. I missed the confirmation that starfield and elder scrolls were both exclusive. I thought there was some waffling on that

    That is the assumption with Xbox Studios acquiring Bethesda.

    Flight Simulator without a VR headset is not worth it, imo. Wish the Xbox would partner up with someone to allow that.

    It says exclusive / first party and I think that’s just a fan Reddit account and not an official corporate one

    Has there been any word if/when they expect people who weren’t able to preorder to get the new Xbox?

    Looks like an ori ripoff and I mean that in the best possible way. Hope it hits gamepass

    My Elite controller finally broke. Feels like I'm playing with dicks for hands. Should I get the new one or wait

    If you really want another Elite I think you should just get the new one. I don't think they're going to be releasing a "Series 3" anytime soon.

    Ah ok. I was also wondering if it's worth it to try and repair it. But it's been so beaten and battered from general wear and tear and drops that maybe it's time.

    Wonder if it's better to try a different brand. Elites still feel so cheaply made.

    Mine got drift within 2 years.

    I have the series 2 and it’s the best controller I’ve ever owned. I bought it at launch, and while I don’t use it very often anymore I haven’t noticed any problems.

    I got these and love them. Easily the best pair I’ve ever owned and if you’re not in a rush keep an eye on price drops. I believe I snagged them for $60-$70 a while back.

    Theyre like Scuf controllers. They have paddles where your fingers are so you don't have to take your thumbs off the sticks.

    Seconded. I've tried at least 5 different upper end headset options, and HyperX is by far the best.

    This one is out of stock, but I bought it earlier this year. Has paddles, doesn't use batteries, and was super cheap. :twocents:

    After using an Elite, idk how I could use a controller without paddles, if it requires jumping/shooting/sliding

    God damn it feels good to have a brand new ELITE controller

    I will say I'm not happy with the stick options. I'd prefer taller ones.
