    I went out of town earlier today all day and went to Walmart and bought the X Box One S bundle with the free NBA 2K20. It was the only one the Walmart store had anyway so I bought it

    Congrats! It's a nifty system. Only bad thing about it is that, while it will play 4K Blu-rays, it won't stream or play the 4K game remasters. You have to go with the Pro to get that, unfortunately. No big deal for me, though...I stream 4K through my Vizio instead. And the TV does a good job of upconverting 1080p to 4K as it is.

    Mind if I recommend some games to go alongside the console? It's pretty cool!

    You can steam 4K content off of Netflix and VUDU. I own a model S.
    Unless you mean you can’t steam yourself on Twitch at 4K then yes that’s correct.

    Last I checked, it wasn't streaming 4K Dolby Vision from Netflix. But maybe it's been updated since then. It's been a long while since I looked

    I don’t know if anything is streaming Dolby Vision yet but most places do 4K HDR10.

    Netflix streams Dolby Vision. And VUDU as well.
