Long time xboxer. I play in my study. Thinking about getting a second console as my wife has started using the study more with her work situation. Unsure whether to try PS or lock in 2nd Xbox. Ideas?

Build a PC


1. I'm cheap
2. Second child on the way so I'm getting even cheaper
3. Wife using study more often so I'm looking to use the living room TV

Why not just move it?

Because when my wife is watching TV I won't be able to play games unless I keep moving it back and forth

Get a second one by why change platforms? Then your games/progress are all the same no matter what... and then the controllers (when your kids aren’t hiding them) al match. Pick up used or refurb console from GameStop.

Probably just do the second Xbox then. Your profile can exist on both so you keep game progress on both systems

I play in the living room while my wife watches tv since we converted the study to a nursery. You should seriously consider building a pc - which will save you money on singleplayer games that you can torrent. Also, consoles generally require more space than a pc because they are played on tvs. Pc masterrace

If she's not using Xbox, you can use a Windows 10 PC to stream from your Xbox. You can play games anywhere

On the cheap, watch out for those ebay 20% discount deals. I got a One X and extra controller for roughly 370. The 4k and HDR is quite spectacular. No gaming PC will come close ( in this price range).

Hi, I need your advise… I see lots of jobs as a Manager and lots of people getting hired with great salaries not much skills, however when I apply in getting automatic rejected emails and interviews that go nowhere. I think I’m the interviews they think I am lying of all what I do and current responsibilities and high number of direct reports. Should I tone down on my work and make my experience and actual job seem less than what I do to get interviews and more chances at a good opportunity?

I’m pregnant with my first child. It’s early, but I’m already dreading telling my project leadership since I’m a key player on my account & I also got promoted. The client is heavily reliant on me. When’s the soonest I should tell them? I’m assuming after the 12-13 week mark...
