Geeky video regarding some benchmarks. The info is a couple of months old so performance has probably improved since then (but the numbers shown here are still pretty impressive)

Funny how times change.

Especially because the 360 and even the original Xbox had Taco Bell promotions.

 

 

I remember being happy that a Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet song was used as Taco Bell's theme for a couple of years during and after the XBox launch.

Anyway, it looks like we may get a Day One Edition-type variant for the X. "Project Scorpio Edition," if this is right.

Supposedly will have pre-order info in the next couple of days.

Gamestop Trade-In prices for X

Promotion: November 7-19

 

--Switch - $200

--PS4 Pro - $200

--Xbox One S - $150

--PS4, original or slim - $150

--Xbox One original - $100

 

 

Before I hit up eBay to look, are original Xbox Ones going for more than $100 on there or am I better off just taking this $100 deal? Definitely want the X if it matters and while I'm not usually a person to go for a launch version, want to get that trade-in toward it since the window is limited.

 

EDIT: Looks like I can get more at the moment but I have no plans to sell this until the X releases since I'm still using it. Looks like I could maybe get another 30-40 bucks after shipping and fees with what they're going for at the moment rather than the $100 trade but might just do the trade to be done with it.

I looked and I could get $127 for a 500GB Xbox One but I have the Titanfall Bundle, which not only comes with the game but with the Kinect as well, only trading in at $109?

 

LOL, what's up with that?

Yeah pre-ordered from Amazon. Also have FM7 Ultimate pre-ordered but I got in on their $80 for Ultimate Edition E3 glitch thing.

 

Also pretty neat that Recore DE will have an update for 4K/HDR assets for free for existing players for the One X.

Yeah, they're not charging anything for an upgraded edition or limiting certain Xbox (even PC here too) gamers out because they don't have the premium system. Everyone gets to play the game no matter if you have the OG Xbox One, Xbox One S or Xbox One X. Everybody can play the games they already have with no extra charge as well as all of them playing better on Xbox One X.

 

But you just go oh well it should be free though.

Yes. They should be. Sony doesn't charge for ps4 pro patches. Why should Microsoft?

If they tried to charge for Xbox One X patches, that would be a terrible business decision.

While Nintendo is releasing full price games that were on their last gen console so yeah if you owned the game previously you have to shell out again.

I posted this in the xbox weekly sale thread but I'm gonna post this here. These are games not listed by Major Nelson that one point were confirmed by a developer and/or somehow speculated they would get X treatment.

Sunset Overdrive ***Referencing a petition that went around twitter. This is not happening ATM.

Games on PS4 Pro with support but not X yet:

Darksouls 3
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

You do realize the Xbox one X is not a new console gen right? Last I checked you can't play your Wii u games on the switch.

Well like I said, Sony doesn't charge for pro patches to games.

If Microsoft were to charge you for Xbox one x patches on top of spending $500 for their upgrade console, they would be dead before the system even launched.

Yeah, that would not be a good business move. The XBoneX is already going to be a hard sell. The last thing they need is exclusive content that you have to pay extra for. The install base is going to be low enough initially that no one would be happy about gating on that level.

 

For the time being, the XBoneX is going to be an optional upgrade. Best just to get used to that idea.

SUPERHOT was added to the list by Major Nelson either today or yesterday. Double checked the list and noticed he added it. Hopefully more titles soon.

 

Edit: I removed Farming Simulator 18 because FM17 is getting the X treatment so one would assume 18 will as well when out. because, Why the heck wouldn't it?

I personally feel like PS4 Pro vs PS4 is a joke, not worth the extra money. I really don't see this being much different.

Look over on this thread,

but I believe pre-orders for the Project Scorpio Edition went fast. They'll announce pre-orders for the Standard Edition next month.

If you don't have a 4K tv maybe. I have one and the difference was pretty noticeable.

Considering the X1 is less powerful than the PS4 (in an overall general sense), and the X1X is noticably more powerful than the Pro, there's a much bigger gulf between the X1 and X1X.

 

I mean, it's not worth it if there are no games to play that you want, but as far as an "upgrade" goes, this is about a close to a generational leap you can get without actually being a generational leap.

Won't be a new generation until there's Scorpio exclusive titles.
