Got the PS5 instead of the Xbox Series X

My wife and I wanted to get our two boys the Xbox. However, I'd been checking for months and the supply chain is so backed up that we were afraid that we wouldn't be able to get it by Christmas time.

So, I did a ton of reading comparing the two consoles and decided to get the PS5 Digital Edition. My wife and I, also, decided that making our young boys wait until Christmas would be too tough on them.

It took me quite a bit of time to get it all set up last night and the kids were able to play with it today. With our brand new Sony Bravia with Dolby Digital audio it has been an amazing experience for all of us.

    Boo! Just kidding, young me is jealous from having to wait till Christmas back in the day.

    I recently got a digital one as well for myself and a helpful site is psdeals (I won't add the TLD incase it's against the rules, but a Google search will bring it up) for finding out when there's a sale on a digital edition of a game and looking at pricing history to see if it's a good deal or not.

    Congrats! I’ve loved the PS5 so far. Not that many games yet but the power and interface is great. Which games have you started with? That little demo game they give you with the Astro robots is surprisingly fun. It’s a great showcase for all the controller’s neat new functionality. Especially those trigger buttons that give you dynamic resistance and feedback.

    I really like my PS5. I don't even really have any "next gen" games for it except Ratchet & Clank. I just love how it has breathed new life into a bunch of my favorite PS4 games. So many of them got patches to support higher framerates and the new controller features. Going from 30 to 60 FPS is really transformative for some of these titles.
