    Yeah I get that as well. It will completely stop sometimes but generally it has been better than Xbox One.

    Living in lake chaparral with TELUS I get 75mb/s. For the Xbox I’m only getting 20 through Wi-Fi. Waiting on new speakers to get the Ethernet. I should switch to Shaw.

    Granted that’s peak. It settled down to 500ish. Really depends on the game. The more popular games max out at around 350.

    xbox went live on ebgames. They were kind enough to inform people so of course their website was jammed. Bestbuy then dropped thousands of consoles for sale with no warning.

    In case anyone's still upset at resellers the vast majority of retailers are doing nothing to inform the public of upcoming sales on consoles. The poor mom trying to get a console for her kid for christmas didn't even get a chance to buy from Best buy today.

    I'm curious to see how many of my orders go through from today.

    Also just an fyi for those looking at consoles sold through microsoft direct it now says arriving dec 29th or later. It doest seem like a great choice for those who want a Christmas gift.

    I still have my extra Xbox. Debating waiting for the Xmas crunch to sell it or to get rid of it now... tough call. Not looking to make cash. Just want to make sure I got one as we all know shit gets cancelled all the time.

    id wait closer to Christmas to sell if you aren't concerned if you sell or not. This way your maximizing your return.

    On a side note i popped into walmart and bestbuy yesterday to ask about in store stock or next releases. Guess what I was told? There are none. There won't be any in store.. and then bam next day best buy sells 5000 consoles with no notice.

    Did you just blame the retailers for "the poor mom" not getting one, when scalpers like you are buying them by the dozen? As if you scalpers wouldn't still be buying them all out if the stores did give advance notice.

    The mental gymnastics are amazing.

    He is a special kind of scumbag who likes to blame other people for everything wrong in the world with next to no concept of introspection.

    There should be a limit of 1 per person on online sales, or 1 per account, or address or whatever to stop scalpers..

    Apparently scalpers are getting robbed at gunpoint out in Toronto when they meet up with people online.

    What a tragedy

    When you mentioned the first round I kept my mouth shut. Now you're advertising making second rounds of scalping
    Society views you as a douche and that's only worth $300? Is it really worth it? Wouldn't personal reputation be worth more than that?

    that was a dig at killramos rant from a few days back. He's the one whining about it. As I said the retailers are doing nothing to help people buy them from them.

    Gwill is certainly scum, but who are the numbnuts paying over sticker for a console that can't even play any better games? That's the mind bottling part

    Your “dig” didn’t do anything but make you look like a bigger loser than the rest of us already thought you were

    I have nothing against scalping. Supply and demand. Everyone with decent credit card can do it. Supply was fine, most of us that wanted them got them without issues, just a little bit of extra work to get it. Most of us ended up with multiple units without using bots. If poor mom doesn’t do her homework and expects to walk into any store with tons of stock to buy one, she’s lazy and deserves to make gwill money.

    Even PS5s tighter supply and demand had no issues for me. Multiple times I was able to get a PS5 and turned it down because I wanted digital.

    There’s risk for gwill too. All it takes is one bad transaction to wipe out a lot of his gains. I hope he doesn’t get robbed at gunpoint, but if he did, some old posts might be hilarious.
