    Stock at Very.

    This is the third time I've got one in the basket with no bother but then don't buy, mostly because the fiance will kill me. Bah!

    And you can pick up a fiance anywhere, but Series X hard to find.

    Just get yourself down the local registry office. Got years to celebrate your marriage after having a good go on your Series X.

    @Humperfunk

    Can your partner run at 60fps in 4K HDR? If not there should be no comeback from them if you jump in with a series X....which you really should have done.

    It's clear that soon to be Mrs humperfunk rules that house hold. I can only imagine she will tighten that hold she has after the wedding.

    My fiancé dumped me last March, just 5 months before our wedding that had been planned for 3 years was due to take place (would have been covid cancelled anyway)

    I was devastated, couple days later lockdown happened and rebuilding my life has been incredibly hard.

    I remember the first weekend of being alone, there had been lots of tears and general depressing and dark feelings, then as I sat browsing websites hardly paying attention to what was on them there was an article about the next gen consoles and my immediate thought was I could now buy a series X without all the grief and moaning that would come from it. For the first time since the breakup there was actually some positivity in my life and I think that was the first time I had smiled

    And I got one, delivered on launch day no less and honestly if time could be turned back and I was given the choice of getting married or getting a Series X on launch day I am picking the X.

    At least I know nobody is sticking their dick in it.....

    @Alan_Wakes_Torch it's amazing how many of my friends are in the situation of being moaned at when they turn their console on or are dictated to when they can and can't play. An hour or 2 a week if they're lucky.

    My wife doesn't mind me playing my consoles when I want, she enjoys gaming too so may have something to do with it.

    Yes, that is certainly worse. My Friend got that treatment just over a month after the wedding (post annulment period) after driving 3 days straight from gold coast to Melbourne as they were moving back there. Really lovely.

    @SiroccoJetProp Having a partner that's into the same things as you is an absolute blessing. At this stage in life, I'd rather be single than be with anyone who's an obstacle between me and the things I love doing.

    Why should your partner be an "obstacle" because you don't have identical hobbies?

    @Armoured_Bear I don’t know mate, you’re asking the wrong person. But I see it a lot. Partners complaining because someone bought a new guitar/camera lens/games console. The old cliche of asking a mate if he wants to go for a beer and getting response of “I’ll have to ask the wife”. People struggling to play the game they want to play because their partner wants to watch something on TV.

    I joined a camera club a few years back and the amount of stories I heard (from men and women) about the lies they had to tell to their partners. “No, I’ve had this lens for ages” and “No, I bought it second hand, it was only £150” after buying a £1,200 lens. People saying they burn receipts in case the other half finds them.
