    PC. I find it better and cheaper for gaming.

    May get a PS5 when there's a price drop though. Their exclusives are good.

    I may buy a PS5 tonight and sell it. Wait a month or two and actually buy one. I have to believe they'll be available by Christmas, right?

    should be. On launched day Walmart had them on up for grabs but like typical online store launches the damn website crashes.

    It's generally going to be pretty hard to play Call of Duty with a drill. You can try, but I doubt you'll see any movement on your television.

    I played the first COD when I had original XBox, I would play online maybe 10-12 hours a day and host the best server, when Cablevision in Fairfield County had the best internet speeds around.

    Gaming eventually cost me a big promotion at work and I knew I needed to stop so I walked away and never went back to it.

    I occasionally play COD on my phone but it’s only for about half hour.

    Oh geez. Sorry to hear that man. I'm glad you were able to jump away.

    The good thing about PS5/Xbox SX is that they made plenty of units to give to celebrities and professional athletes for free while the rest of the world has to either wait for them to restock or pay $1,200 on eBay and possible get scammed.

    I would never in a million years touch a unit like that or maybe anything for 120% above retail. People are crazy. Little Johnny can wait two weeks for it...

    COD is like Madden to me. It's the same game, over and over and over. The only thing that changes for COD is the maps. I'm completely fine playing last years game with a bunch of buddies who wont pony up for the new one.

    The Spiderman game on the PS5 looks absolutely incredible, but it's asinine to get the system for just one game IMO. I really only use my PS4 for streaming services with my wife anyways. PC Gaming is where it's at.

    I use our PS for streaming services only as well. I have completely walked away from any gaming with exception of 1/2 hour of COD app on my iPhone.

    I also played Dust 514 which was connected to EVE online and was a tremendous game to play with unlimited worlds to play in.

    Paid too steep of a price for it and didn’t want to look back and wonder where did my life go after my first experience.

    No dude at 3PM again today. If I'm still up for TNF I may try at BJ's tonight - midnight release. A source familiar with their website and what not say it's going to be a disaster because their website and servers suck.

    These systems are impossible to get on release. With Christmas a month away you would think they would make it a little easier to get?

    It's unreal dude. I honestly didn't even want one that badly (I was going to wait until after Christmas) until I was told I can't have it LOL.

    BJ's at midnight was a no go last night. Not sure if that was a false rumor or what.
