purchased it and what a deal. I downloaded Battlefield 4 and have been playing every night while the wife is on travel. Also downloaded the new FIFA.

I saw lots of deals for the XBOX One S for $250 in the weeks leading up to XMas. I hope they stick around but I have other big expenses to pay for. I still have a dead dishwasher and now an over the range microwave to replace.

Probably the biggest disappointment for me was that the game that Joey wanted so bad (Planet Coaster) can NOT run on my laptop. It requires a much beefier graphics card because there are tons of NPCs wandering around the park. I ended up having to download RoBlox on the laptop AND iPhone instead and Super Mario Run on my iPhone. Roblox does NOT run on the 360 or wiiU.

Fortunately, RoBlox is free (at least for an account) but I've relied heavily on XBOX's family timer setting to regulate Joey's play time so I see room for argument to upgrade to the XBOX ONE S before March. Naturally, Joey and my wife are NOT interested.

The lowest I saw the 1tb was $299, I saw the 500mb for $212 or so cyber Monday. I figured the 1tb was a good deal.

Is that Roblox something I should see the girls would like? What is it?

Kind of like Minecraft, stuff is all created by members. It's online. I don't let them talk to anyone though

Thanks. They have minecraft on the kindles and will have it on xbox again. That's enough for me.

Is it wrong that I keep checking shipping to see if it's still on track.
