Didn't see this mentioned anywhere yet, but in a similar vain to the promo from two weeks ago, Best Buy is offering a 50'in Samsung 1080p Smart TV and the 1TB Madden 16 Xbox One bundle together for $849.99 + tax.

Together:

Individually, the TV runs on average $649.99 and the Xbox One bundle is pretty much gonna be MSRP anyway you slice it.

 

You can add the items to the cart individually, or bundled all at once. Doesn't seem to be any glitches at this time.

 

Not sure how it compares with the 40'in J5200 model offered, but they seem to have both readily available online still. 

 

Any TV experts care place their two cents on the value of the deal (or value v. the older promo with the MCC bundle?) or quality of the sets?

My opinion on this deal is "Not a good deal" compare to last weeks Xbox One bundle. Because of the success bundle last week, Best Buy is trying to do it again. But in my opinion (overpriced deal).

It would make more sense if they bundled it with a 900p TV since the Xbox One still can't handle full 1080p games.

OK, just did the deal today and I think I took advantage of Best Buy. I demanded, with death threats, the manager give me gift receipts for each item. Then I went to a different Best Buy and returned them and now have 2 GCs with the full price of the TV and console. I WIN!!!!! The rest of you SUCK!

Bigger screen, better refresh rate (which ultimately better for gaming) but it's pretty bulky (width wise) compared to the 40inch they offered yesterday. Width is important for me to wall mounting reasons. 

 

Meh, I'd wait for a better deal closer to black friday. If they do the same as last year there is going to be a lot of pre-black friday sales to entice customer's to spend their money.

Because if there's one thing that matters more than any other fucking thing in video games, it's having 180 extra P's.

 

Also, you're incorrect. But don't let that stop you.

Such a fanboy statement.  Oh, and clearly wrong too.  

 

But right, feel free to go ahead thinking that.

It was just a joke. Sorry to upset you. Please forgive me.

Not sure what I am being a fanboy about but okay. Maybe look up the facts? More than half of Xbox One game's native resolutions are 900p or less.

11 games @ 720p

19 games @ 900p

26 games @ 1080

Actually, yes. The difference between 1080p vs 900p is VERY apparent. Unless you have some sort of eye condition. This specially applies to 3rd party games, since they're the same price on PS4/XBO...for the same money, I want the best version, and that's the PS4. After all, this IS CheapAssGamer.

Mgsv isn't 900p on xb1? What about sending discs without everything in it and having the customer end up downloading the rest of the game such as halo master chief collection or rare replay?
I'm excited for the forza 6 bundle I preordered buy I'm not going to ignore the flaws. Chill mr fanboy, nobody is paying you to lie

Since all the PS4 has is indie games a CRT rocking 480p is really all you need

Checks thread- sees pointless squabble over console resolution- proceeds to back out of thread

FYI, the glitch from last week is still in effect. If you add the xbone and tv manually to your cart and add a second xbone, the price of the tv resets to the sale price ($649.99) and the 2 xbones come in at $500 (+tax) together. Canceling / not picking up the tv will not affect the price of the xbones.

Now, now - the PS4 has plenty of PS3 remasters as well to look forward to.  The PS4 is a fantastic way to pay to play great games from the last generation!  And you don't have the hassle of using your old disc to play them via backwards compatibility - you get to buy the games on a fresh new disc all over again!  And just think of all the bragging you can do over meaningless spec differences on the Internet - that is the true power of the PS4!  It comes packaged with swagger!

 

It is a shame that the discussion is still devolving into these sorts of things, devs have been reaching new levels of parity between systems due to firmware updates and the feature list on the XB1 keeps expanding.  I like the PS4, but Sony is really hurting this holiday with their exclusive game lineup (or lack thereof).  I get that people want their console choice to be the best, but know when you are behind the eight ball.  Those extra P's aren't going to be so awesome when you are sitting there waiting until at least Spring of next year for the next good exclusive.  That aggression would be better served aimed at Sony and why you have to pay $20 a month to play old games you might already own.  Winning a resolution debate with an XBox fan isn't going to fix the issues with the PS4 (and it does have several issues).

 

900p vs. 1080p isn't that apparent, at least not on my 60 inch screen.  Now, if you have an 80" TV or sit nose to screen on a smaller TV, then maybe you can see it on a still screen.  I've got both a PS4 and a XB1 hooked up to the same TV and my eyesight is just fine.  With upscaling (which most of the 900p games use), it actually is 1080p - and you have to get out a magnifying glass and compare pixel positions to detect it (like they did for Batman since it wasn't officially published).

 

Mgsv isn't 900p on xb1? What about sending discs without everything in it and having the customer end up downloading the rest of the game such as halo master chief collection or rare replay?

That's funny, every game on both consoles requires installation and almost everyone has Internet - who cares what is on the disc?  Practically every single game has a big day 1 patch as well.  Why are the bits on the disc important anyways (same answer for the DLC haters)?  It isn't like you pay more or less or the disc is heavier or something.  After you install the disk is pretty much just a key to let you play.

Cleaner and sharper than 1080p?

You might be unto something....so I'm guessing you don't own any Blu-Ray movies. DVDs for life?

I prefer 900p. It has a clearer/sharper image to me.

cringeworthy

This thread should just be re-titled, "console wars pixel epeen extravaganza," so I know to not come in here. Bunch of babies, I'm still on a 720p TV for console AND PC gaming, and yet my eyes aren't on fire over it.

Gonna go ahead and jump in on this flame war...

 

I have an xbox one and I get really frustrated with how much some games lag and/or stutter (Tiger Woods for example, feels like I'm playing a brand-new game on a 3-year-old PC, or if you played MK:X at launch and remember the stuttery X-Rays).  I'm not sure who decided that resolution was worth more than a steady framerate/overall smoothness, but they deserve to be shot.  

 

I guess my point is - my understanding with PS4 is that all games a required to be in 1080P, and that leads to performance issues.

 

Can't we just get a guaranteed 60FPS console? Who cares if it's in 720!?

Once I threw out the death threats he did what I wanted. The police applauded me as I left the store, they even gave me an escort to return them at another Best Buy.
