I doubt other people are as anal or picky as me, but I just saw that they use a "stippled" texture on the console itself.

versus the regular Xbox One X that is just smooth.

Not a fan of the stippling, as I've had other electronics in the past that had that and were a complete pain in the ass to keep clean as dirt/gunk/etc. gets stuck in the little pitted indentations and you can't clean it out easily. Something to be mindful of if you're OCD like I am.

Really want one of these, but I will be patient and wait for the inevitable white one. IMO the scorpio should have been white. Oh well.

Thanks a lot.  Now I can't unsee the stipples... :(

Amazon is giving $127 for the OG Xbox One and like $190 something for the 2TB XB1S. Just gotta scroll through all the results because it's some duplicates in there that trade for less.

Glad I got my X preordered at Amazon because I have a bunch of credit from trading in my Wii U, games and accessories earlier this year (got like $200 for the console itself). Might let go my OG Xbox because I got an S and I really don't need 3 Xbox Ones in the apt. A bit overkill.

You will have excuse Six Min Whistle for missing your post about the Movie Pass. He has been very, very concerned about Conan's penis lately.

Got my preorder in at Gamestop as soon as they opened them. Looking forward to the next few months of flipping to pay off this and the fall titles.

Yes, because they know we are getting these for cheap thanks to Gamestop flips

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?


Lmao. We had this same discussion when it was announced. The allure of aftermarket prices are the primary draw no doubt.

I recommend food and utilities. Possibly even a savings account.

So I wonder when we can order the standard edition and not the fake limited supply bumpy nipples version?

Also is it amateur hour on eBay today?
1. You can't sell pre orders for this until October 8th per eBay policy
2. Even if this were limited, you have to find someone dumb enough to pay you $640 just to break even after factoring sales tax, shipping, and eBay/PayPal fees.

I wasn't planning on getting this on day one and was going to wait for a special edition version to come out later (since I've already had two Xbox Ones - Day One and then sold that to get the Halo 5 version), but then Microsoft fucked that plan up by having a special edition right at launch.

xbox gift card credit can be used

currently newegg is still running 10% off those cards (1hr left), and $25 off via masterpass. Amazon also has the cards 10% off.

That is assuming people spent cold hard cash on it. I'm just gonna assume most people used their GS trade credit (that they've been rolling for however long) to pay it off, so it is very little if anything out of pocket.

There's still plenty of other retailers that have it up for pre-order. Amazon and GS appear to be the only ones that sold out (though I'm not sure if Amazon ever put it up to begin with).

Yea I'm leaning towards the standard black one myself. It looks cool but the green sticks out and would probably drive me nuts while staring at me from my entertainment center.

I'm also always trading my previous xbox one models for updated versions so having a special version won't really matter to me in the long run.

I like the minecraft one but I have played my one for probably like 50 hours total in almost 2 years. If I could magically trade it 1:1 or swap it out for an extra $50 I'd do it just for the cool paint job but no way I'd consider more.

So people are going to spend $500 for another console from the same generation? WOW. It's what, a 4 year old console and still prices at its original, bloated, MSRP. "M" really knows how to stick it to you guys.
