    i'm impressed with everything but the IQ, for reference I have seen a One S on my LG C1 and wired to my NBN connection - it looks like complete arse compared to the same games loaded natively on the One S. Everything else, super good. Seemed to prioritise lag over looking good.

    you said out of stock, assumed price wasn't too much of a concern. it's not like they are scalper prices.

    Unless I am doing something wrong all the reasonable listings are unable to be shipped to my location when you click through to the options and then the prices shoot up to $100+USD before taxes and shipping. The Amazon/MS listings are all actually OOS. I'm good with not paying 50%+ more than I need to, I'm not that impatient :p

    Anyway the MS store is the way to go.

    fleabay/gumtree worth a shot too dude. Picked up a few (current gen) xbox controlers for $40, no stick drift. Official MSFT (rechargable) battery pack for controllers though- they've been OOS for a long long time. Hard to find.

    Can also use previous gen controllers too fwiw, same same less a button..

    There we go. Odd at a time where Series X stock actually looks to be stabilising (pre-orders for this month still not sold out).

    Anyway my controller should be arriving today. Had to settle for robot white instead of my usual black, what a world :Paranoid:

    ^^ Read an article about that the other day, actually quite interesting. Not sure I'd be willing to crank the XSX all day at 100% though. Fan gets loud and quite frankly, asking for trouble with the scarcity of replacement parts/nothing on 2nd hand market.

    Also not overly excited on how efficient xbox mining is on any platform, given they're all mainly optimised for PC OS's. In saying that- I suppose with some SDK trickery could be worthwhile..?

    How to mine on Xbox
