I did not need another console

I have, on occasion, rambled on about how nice it is that you don’t need to own multiple consoles in this generation.  While both the PS4 and Xbox One have a fair number of unique games, there’s a really nice amount of overlap between their libraries, so you can really own either without feeling too left out.

So, I was happy with my PS4, later upgraded to a PS4 Pro.  It’s the first generation where I’ve really considered a Sony console to be my go-to system, made somewhat easier by the fact that the DualShock 4 is the first controller I think Sony has ever gotten right.

Then came Amazon’s Prime Day, with its staggering offer of an Xbox One S bundle for $240, including an extra controller and three games  (Forza 6, Halo 5 and ReCore.)

And, well, I’d never signed up for the Amazon credit card, meaning that I could get an extra 80 bucks off, so err..

I am impressed by how small the thing is, particularly with no external power brick.  I’m a little less impressed by how long the initial system update took, but fortunately downloading games is a fair bit faster.

I’ve also decided that this is going to be my first digital-only system, since I’ll mostly be using it for Microsoft exclusives.  It’s a big step for me, so we’ll see how long that plan holds.
