Same. Picked it up at 9, got home and installed and started playing at 11. At 1 am I was falling asleep trying to play, so I went to bed. Gonna go start it up now, though.

I have both, but only use PS4 for gaming. The XBox I bought was because it was cheaper than a 4K blu-ray player, so I just use it to play 4K discs.

PS4 has more, and better, exclusives, in my opinion. Spider-Man, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn. If you haven't played this generation, PS4 Pro is the way to go. It also has a nice entry into VR, if you're into that. If you own a PS4, VR is a few hundred bucks all in.

I'm debating this same thing. I let my sister borrow my ps4 while she's getting cancer treatment, so my choice is to get the ps4 pro bundle or wait for the pc port. I'm sure I'll buy it on pc when it comes to pc, so I'll probably just wait.



Now just wait for me to check in at 9 tonight after I set up my new ps4...

BG's sad conclusion: I'm bad at boss fights in ANY game.

I thought RDR was an OK game, but some people seem to regard it as the best thing ever. Probably just me...I feel most rockstar games are extremely overrated.

Just FYI, I don't think it's ever been confirmed that it's actually coming to PC, although a lot of people think it will.

I loved RDR and I'm loving RDR2. But I've played maybe an hour of all of the GTA games combined, and they do nothing for me. So, it's not a RockStar thing, it's a western thing for me.

Probably about 8 hours in now. Didn't get to play as much yesterday as I hoped.

I unlocked my DLC horse, and named him DLC. He's a beast! Definitely better than the free/cheap horses. And upgrading stirrups improves their stats.

Played a couple hands of poker for one mission, and remembered how much I hated that in the first one. Mainly cuz I don't actually know how to play poker, so I have no idea what I'm doing. The mechanics and stuff are improved, so that's good, I just don't know how to play. And enough people have tried to teach me that I'm clearly never gonna learn.

World seems much bigger, but with the right horse, you can move through it. Definitely use waypoints if you're trying to get somewhere specific.

Really enjoying it so far.

I have an XB1 but haven't played it in forever. Just play PC now.
Plus, all first party MS games are on PC and will be going forward. If you have a PC, I donít think thereís any reason to get X1.
