I got the new Xbox today. They really made it feel like you are playing on your regular Xbox except with much better features. The load times really are crazy, just been playing a lot of different games and see how they look and feel. Also bought two games with it. I got so many games on hand I'll never finish them lol.

Looked into getting the NBA 2K seeing as it looks crazy on the new box. These crackheads want 99 bucks for the game. HELLLLLLL NNNNOOOO. Can't believe they are gouging so hard. I did buy Madden which is on sale and will give players a free upgrade when the next-gen version comes out in a couple of weeks. 2K has lost their minds.

I thought it was on sale on the Xbox store.

At least here in Australia they're having a black friday thing on there.

That's too much. They might have took my write-in suggestion wrong when I told them to rate JMac as a 99.

I was wrong when I said that earlier. There is a $70 version that gets you the next-gen game. Still pricey and still a crap move IMO seeing how everyone else is doing free upgrades but whatever. I'm gonna wait until that $70 version is on sale.

Let me know if JMac got the 99 rating.

Thought I'd post this. For some of us 2K nerds, we love to sim and build teams. I personally like siming important games with simcast and jumping in to watch or play the final quarter or so. Problem is, that takes a long time if you do it a lot because of all the loading. On the new consoles that loading is cut WAY down. Makes it a lot easier to play like this, I'm probably going to do it a lot in the new 2K game and Madden.

Looks like I'll be getting 2K after all. Just helped my friend get a Series X bundle from Gamestop. It came with 2K and Call of Duty, he doesn't like either game so he is selling them to be for $100. I was looking for a cheaper deal on 2K but I'll take it.
