Any announcements about a software that actually warrants me spending another 500$ on a sleek HD DVD player?

So how much credit do you get trading your XBox One S towards the X pre-order? and of course the vanilla one....


... go to sleep.

Any word what regular phat 500gb XB1's might get as far as trading them in towards a XBX? Sorry if this a dumb question had no interest in a X till today. I actually have two phats and a S model I could trade towards this.

Thanks,

Put in preorder at amazon but I'm wondering if gamestop is the better place to preorder because of a trade-in promotion. Not sure how much the day one original xbox one will get.

Ordered mine from GameStop. Had some credit from trading in some stuff in January.

I'm not liking the "Project Scorpio" wording on the console and controller.   Did a pre-order anyways, but will cancel once the regular edition becomes available.

I'm not even sure why I preordered. I still have the Xbox One Halo Masterchief collection bundle still sealed. I bought it like 2 years ago but yet to open it. I basically preordered a Blu Ray player that plays video games but yet, has none.

Flyer on the door at the local GameStop had the breakdown for the trade in promo. $200 for switch/PS4 pro, $150 for PS4/Xbox one S, $100 for the VCR Xbone. Was told a coupon for the promo would be sent to my PUR account.

Headed to the store after I got the reminder call, they had already done 13 or 14 preorders and after me only had 3 left.

Not even interested. My XB1 collects dust right now and any new game I'll just play on that. I do have a 4K TV w/ HDR but have no interest in playing Gears and the like in 4K.

Damn, these are disappointing values. I have a preorder in but I don't think I'll keep it for that price.

Got a call from my GameStop, allotted 13 units and had 3 left. Unfortunately they closed 13 minutes after the call, and I couldn't have made it in time. Now to decide if I want to go in there at opening and try to get one, or secure one online now. I'd rather not tie up the $500 trade credit all at once though. I assume when preordering online with trade credit the full amount would be taken out right away?

Tempted to pre order solely for the fact that it's limited edition... But I have absolutely no need or time for this

Sold my 500gb Xbox One S for $200 a few days ago on craigslist, so that money will go towards the X.  Good that I have a PS4 Pro as my main gaming console, so I can live with not having a Xbox for a few months

I went ahead and pre ordered one, but only because I had a ton of GS credit to more than pay for it.

I preordered 1 in store, I was number 5/12.

I do not think this will sell out, I really think the price for this will put off a lot of people. Also the message for the console IMO isn't fully there yet...

I used trade credit and it said I will not be charged until it ships, checked my card and the full amount is still on there. Ran into the same problem not being able to go to the store in time.

The Xbox One X: Scorpio is $450 at the MS Store, if you buy XBOX Gift Cards on Amazon, its 10% off, so $100 are $90. Alittle savings there!

Is Best Buy taking pre-orders in store? I might be moving before release, so I can't order online and all Gamestop's in my area have sold out of their allotments.

You can do In Store Pickup online and it'll be like doing the preorder in store if that is easier.

Fuck in' cool. I signed up for the Amazon alerts, but didn't get an email. I signed up for the GS alerts, but didn't get a call. I do have the GS credit, but I don't have a 4K TV. I won't be too bummed if I miss out, but I'll definitely buy one if I can. If I don't get my hands on a Project Scorpio edition with my GS or Amazon credit, I'll wait for however long it takes for some other cool looking "special edition."

I certainly don't need one but heck with GameStop aren't we always drowning in credit? It's already easy enough to use SB weekends and promos to double your gaming dollar. I think most CAGs know that it isn't hard to turn $250 into $500. Personally I paid the $100 down with credit from boomerangs (aka free credit), will trade my S for $150 (which I also upgraded from my Xbone VCR for free with flips). That will leave $250. Should be able to hit that with $125 in flips over the next 2 months. No way would I put out $500 cash for this upgrade.. but $125? Sure!

$150 for an Xbox S 2 months from now isn't terrible but was expecting more, especially for 1tb and 2tb models.

It looks like the Xbox One X - Project Scorpio edition comes with a stand.  It's likely the standard version will not.

They have to make it stand out somehow.

Is this really what it's come down to? Half the posts I see here are "I preorderd it but I'm not sure why" or "I preordered it even though my XBOne collects dust on the shelf". People are free to spend their money as they please, but are we so blinded by hype and the draw of potentially missing out on some artificially limited product that we're spending half a grand on things we don't want, don't need, and won't use?

I preordered mine so I can finally play Scalebound.

SMH and people are already buying them for $600 on up.


People are morons, I swear. Assuming shipping is $25, you would have to sell the console for $603.10 to even get $500 back after ebay and PayPal fees (which account for 10% and 0.29% + $0.30, respectively).
