Series X, no chance I fear. Series S? Yes (or close to). Don't dismiss Series S out of hand, I went that way and am glad I did. I got all the next-gen features (quick resume, ray-racing, etc.), whereas if I'd spurned it I'd have still been on a last-gen console these last 11 months. It's surprisingly close to the PS5 and Series X in how a game looks in motion when looking at a TV across the room, and it's inexpensive and small and easy to find.

I thought it would be a stop-gap until I finally got a Series X, but I'll probably just keep it and keep enjoying it instead!

I suspect we will see fairly big restocks for the Forza release week, Black Friday week, Cyber Monday week, and Halo release week. But demand is also going to be even higher during that period, so you're definitely going to need some luck on your side to buy one.

The gameplay look so fluid. Halo always had this characteristic but this one seems a great deal above the others on this regards

I love what I saw! We get the amazing Halo gameplay within the largest sandbox every before, with many different ways of approaching missions. Shooting banshees out of midair and then high jacking another one. That's the kind of stuff that makes Halo so special.

I like what I saw. Even the new Cortana quickly grew on me. Visually better than what we saw last year.

I thought that too, but I think they showed enough straight gameplay where you get the idea for every aspect of the game without spoiling the story.

I like that it seems to have a little of the new Doom games in its combat. Definitely interested and will keep an eye on it.

As a Halo vet, I want to be excited. But something about that grapple hook mechanism just feels WAY too similar to the dreaded armor lock for my comfort. I can already picture the utter frustration of having earned a drop on someone, only to watch as they suddenly zip away like a wraith in the night for a quick head shot, while I'm still spinning around like an idiot, wondering where the heck they went.

Well, at least the grapple speeds up gameplay and makes it more fluid, unlike armour lock that slows it down to a crawl. But I'm mostly a campaign guy, so I don't need to worry about people doing it to me! :)

My hope is they'll at least add a playlist without it.
