    Haha, yeah, quite the jump to that size increment, huh? Of course to complement that OLED, you're going to need to obtain a surround processor with Audyssey EQ function. Quite amazing how that turns out, not at all like 'oxygen-free virgin copper conductors for reference tonal quality speaker wire, $15/ft'. It actually sets things up quite nicely.

    $496 after $41 tax for the console and just RDR2, Amazon should get it to me Tuesday. Remember the good 'ol days of no tax on internet stuff? Or is Ohio not as predatory as IL when it comes to taxes?

    Newegg didn't charge tax. I also misspoke. I did a bundle with 2 controllers, NBA whatever and RDR2 for $579.
    I then purchased A Way Out as the wife wants to play a cooperative game. Should be interesting.

    You're lucky. I checked Newegg...they also wanted tax. I gotta move, lol.

    Cooperative game? Isnt the entire purpose of gaming to shut the world around you out and sit there for hours with drool coming out the corner of your mouth while family is yelling at you to get your act together?

    Yeah. We'll see. She's not a gamer. First thing is to teach her how the controller works.
    This could be risky...

    As long as she doesn't mysteriously get the urge to start vacuuming when you want to play a game, you're good, lol

    Definitely enjoying this sandbox game. Typically find sandbox games a bit boring and this may get to that point, but, for now, it fun just hunting and robbing and enjoying the graphics.

    It's fun hogtying people and doing devious things to them. Throw 'em over a ledge, leave 'em on the train tracks, feed 'em to the bears or gators; and that's just to name a few. HA!

    I don't know if I am slow or something, but does learning the controls and whatnot get easier? RDR2 is confusing the heck out of me with menus and operations. I actually partitioned out some time today to play RDR2...and then shortly gave up and downloaded Civilization, managing to play 2 hours of that nice and easy. Is there hope for me?

    I was mid-Chapter 3 or so before it all clicked. It does seem counterintuitive early on but it actually is an incredibly fast setup once you get it down, for doing a huge variety of things; more than any other game I've played. But, yeah, I feel you. I spent most of Chapter 2 accidentally shooting people in the face.
