I broke down and bought a Series X from a scalper. Used OfferUp (a local buy/sell app) because I wanted a great experience for Cyberpunk. Paid $710 with an extra controller included, which I thought was a decent deal (relatively speaking, obviously).
Now, I have to decide what to do with my Series S. Should I sell it (looks like I can get $425 or so into my pocket), or keep it for a second TV? My original thought was to keep it. But, am I really going to want to have a less-good experience with some of my gaming?
And to defuse any console war crap right now, I'll note that I also intend to pick up a PS5 at some point. But, I'll probably wait for a price drop for that. I damn sure won't pay scalper prices again. I chose XB first this gen because I have two more years on my GP subscription. It keeps the overall cost of my gaming habit down.
* Posted in Gaming Discussion rather than MS, because I don't see it as an MS specific topic. I want to know what people think about buying from scalpers (as opposed to being a scalper, which we talk about all the time at the start of each generation). *Last edited by VAMatt - on 13 December 2020
