    I am looking to get a console for my wife and I am we have not had one in ages.

    We want to be able to play from our bed with wireless controls, if these work well enough.

    We want to be able to play games that would allow us to be on the same team and work co-op through missions. Something like the Ghost Recon missions years ago on the pc,

    Need opinions on what console to get and what games, if any we could take advantage of.

    Thanks for anybody's input, we are out of the loop on this topic.

    Do you have a budget?
    What type of games do you prefer?
    Your TV, does it have 4K, VRR, 120Hz, etc?

    We prefer games that we can co-op...like single player shooters that can be tactical.

    Budget...to some extent, tv can do 4k not sure about VRR, 120Hz.

    Wireless contolers are way better then they are on PC so there should be lag noticed, just make sure gamemode is enabled on the tv, lots battle royal type games out there you's might like.

    This is a must buy when you decide what console to go with.

    Honestly I love my Series S. It is a $300 USD console, and it's great. My one complaint about it is it only comes in 500gb, which AAA games you will fill up quickly with that. Sure you can get the 1tb expansion card but at that rate you might as well should just get the Series X(Now mind you instead you have a console with 1.5tb of storage though). Gamepass is also a steal too. For the cost of 3 AAA new games a year, you get a catalog of brand new games from Microsoft(just this year they've released 5 at least AAA games), plus an ever growing library of games and EA Play and Xbox Live Gold.

    Now Sony is going to introduce their own version of Gamepass, but we do not know what that will consist of entirely yet.

    It gets difficult towards the end but overall it's loads of fun in coop. Tons of stickers to collect.

    Overall the levels are not too difficult. Some levels can be challenging though, but in a fun way.

    I think I am going to go with X-Box S

    We probably won't be playing over a couple of games at a time any way so the small HD should not be a big issue.

    Thanks for everybody's input
