  1. Thanks for sharing, I love the to the point unboxing and none of the “ooh thy wrapped it with 75lb card stock, with a French-style ink droplet-real high end .” lol

    Unboxing should be like this! Thanks for sharing

  2. It’s so exciting to see the unboxing. I wish I was getting one this holiday! I’m a little surprised that Microsoft still uses battery operated controllers, I thought maybe they would have moved to rechargeable controllers like the other major console manufacturers.

    I can hardly wait for your review Jon!
