Thanks! I ended up getting one, because (after credit card rewards and tradeins), I managed to get it for a couple hundred. I figured I can use it to play backwards compatible games I wanted to catch up on from the PS3 era via EA Access and Game Pass (like the Mass Effect Trilogy), games that I've wanted to play for awhile that are only on XBox/PC (Fable I, II, and III), and modern stuff that is only on XBox for the next couple of years and then trade it and my PS4 Pro toward a PS5. I'll probably also use the XBox One X for games where the graphical difference or performance is more noticeable.
Thanks again to everyone who weighed in. longhornsk57 wrote:
