    I'm enjoying the Division 2 on xbox right now.

    I also picked up an Oculus Quest and it's pretty amazing. A game like Beat Saber on the Quest feels like a gigantic step forward in gaming innovation and technology. I know billions have been invested in the VR experience, and the Quest really feels like you're getting their money's worth. I understand Facebook (who owns/developed the Oculus) is selling these at a loss at $400 just to get them in households. It's very user friendly and just a ton of fun.

    filsdepac brought his Oculus Quest to our family get-together last week and I agree, it was a lot o' fun. I was surprised by the high quality graphics and sound. The grandkids feigned awe and appreciation for my sweet moves on Beat Saber. And the software was smart enough to recognize me as a potential buyer, awarding me an A for my efforts, higher than it gave to any of my penurious, juvenile competitors. I'll probably take the plunge next month.

    Tried this out a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, it was fun. Might pull the trigger on a couple for the grandkids.

    Our latest is to play Rock Band on our XBox One. Ages are 2, 5, & 6. The two older boys are surprisingly good on drums and vocals - oldest one can read almost every word. The 2-yr old is hilarious on the drums. We have a great time.

    Their favorite tune is Uptown Funk. Second place = anything by Bon Jovi.

    Good on ya.

    Too many parents, and grandparents, miss out on just jumping in and playing video games with their kids and instead just deride the younger generation. My kids love to laugh at how terrible I am at the games they play, but they always welcome me in I love to spend time with them any way that I can.

    Maybe you should upgrade to the PS4 before the PS5 is out next year...

    Sony has sold 100 million PS4s

    Sony’s PlayStation 4 console has been a huge hit for the company, and it has now hit the 100 million sales milestone. Sony revealed in its latest earnings that the company sold 3.2 million PS4 devices in the quarter ended June 30th, meaning exactly 100 million have now been sold in total. Sony was previously sitting at 96.8 million PlayStation 4 consoles after the previous quarter.
    [...]
    It’s still not clear how many Xbox One consoles have been sold in this current generation, as Microsoft stopped reporting figures years ago. Analysts estimate somewhere between 30 million and 60 million, showing that Microsoft has its work cut out to compete with Sony next year.

    I'm actually surprised to hear the PS4 is selling that well. I mean I bought one, but

    I was pretty blown away by this presentation by Microsoft at E3. Consoles giving PC gaming a run for its money for the first time?

    I pulled the trigger and ordered one from Best Buy and got 10% off because of my bd. I'm considering what games to buy and I found this unusually funny game review.

    I'll tell you right off the bat: Beat Saber is the best game. After that, I like Superhot VR, a puzzle/action game, Creed, a super fun exercise game based on the movie of the same name (I burn about 350 calories playing straight through the career mode).

    A game I just got is Racket NX, which plays like a 360 degree 'Arkanoid' or like a real life iteration of the Tron disc game from the movie. Look it up- it's a good time.

    Just imagine where X-Box would be right now had Sony not screwed around with the PS3 -- forcing a funky processor and blu-ray into it along with a ridiculous launch price. The PS2 was the most successful console of all time and it looks like the PS4 may end up as an even bigger hit. They gave X-Box a foothold into the market but they're beginning to lose that within a single generation.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I think the ps4 has a cool interface, but I sincerely like the xbox one better.

    Microsoft announced Xbox One before Sony announced PS4 and really messed up their launch announcement and messaging (confusing anti-used games DRM, always online, kinect required). Sony cleaned their clock when they announced the PS4 contrasting their policies with Microsoft's hugely unpopular ones and the PS4 being $100 cheaper. Microsoft would later backtrack on those decisions but the damage was done. They started off in a huge hole.

    That’s true. However, xbox’s 180 on backwards compatibility worked wonders for them.

    I should, but I wrote it off as a blatant rip-off of Fortnite. I may give it a whirl but have my hands full with The Division 2 dlc, Doom Eternal, Animal Crossing, 2K20, plus I need to somehow get back at RDR2...

    I paid too much for an Oculus Quest for my kids for Christmas. Most of them lost interest, and Mrs. NWC has logged in more hours than anyone else, by far. But I've spent a significant amount of shelter in place time on it also.

    It's pretty fun. Beat Saber is pretty cool. The Imagine Dragons song pack is my favorite. There are 360 degree options that are wild.
    Other hits are Moss, A Fisherman's Tale, and Superhit VR. Moss is an incredibly beautiful game. It took 10 hours of play time for me to finish it. There are also quite a few free games that aren't bad. Plenty of VR educational videos that are nausea inducing. I haven't watched a Netflix or Prime movie on it yet, but that might be kind of cool. No porn yet though
