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.


Don't buy it if you're not interested, but save your judgement for more important things than the buying habits of someone else. To each his own.....hell I may go out and buy a car with a combustion engine like my Grandfather did.

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."

A clerk setup the alert for me in store and now I have a pre order on my app at that store location that I never made. Check your app maybe you do too

Then don't buy it? It's aimed at the niche/hardcore fanbase. Sony did the same thing with the PS4 Pro, albeit a bit cheaper and a year earlier. If your waiting for the PS5/X2 (assuming they go that route and not this route rather then a new gen) then wait. There are no exclusive XBox X or PS4 Pro games.

i dont think some people get it, microsoft doesnt want another hardware generation. they want to keep making the xbox one marginally more powerful and have you upgrade your console every 2-3 years. do people need new $700 phones every year? that is the model microsoft is going for.

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.

 

i am all for special editions too, but awhile back i stopped buying first batch consoles till more bugs worked out, finally got the halo 5 edition didnt find out till later that that model was the first to start using ssd's, started crapping out on me weeks ago so i had to trade it in before deals will start coming out, i am betting their will be a halo edition next year if they release it then but not going to wait without an xbox that long so shooting for s special edition s before the end of the year

exactly but i thought xbox one s was as powerful as the pro and that is why sony released the pro, but yeah its like the elite controller whose aimed at more serious gamers (own one, cant use another controller ever again)

Yup, Sony as well.

Hardware in general is headed in this direction. Replaced a 20yr old washer last year with a samsung i hope can last 5 years. Companies are purposely making things with parts that have fairly limited lifetimes.

I dont think that should/will be the case. We need next generation so multiplayer games won't be held back. Cant have destiny 2 for example running 60fps in xb1x or pspro and 30fps on xb1s or ps4. Point of consoles is running games the same, not unfair advantages like pc people buying new $800 graphics cards etc etc

That's what was implied by Phil and others earlier but I have my doubts. This was coming from others and Phil. Phil has said many things and I believe is a great guy, but even when he said he hated the Tomb Raider type deals here we are with PUBG getting published by MS and more timed exclusiveness lol.

 

I'm hoping for another XBox in 2-3 years and will be fine with whatever they do as long as all systems are BC going forward. I have a feeling that will be the case with the XBox anyways because of the great amount of effort poured into getting the 360 BC and eventually a bunch of OG XBox titles as well.

Wish I had more money to spend on gaming this Fall. I really want the One X, but I will have to wait until next year before I pick one up, hopefully I can upgrade to a better 4K TV by the time I do as well. Having the PS4 Pro has made me not even want to play my Xbox One, with the S out and the X around the corner my original Xbox One seems like such ancient technology now.

 

I hope the X does well though, I have a feeling that it will sell very poorly though. The One S being so much cheaper is much more attractive for those who want an Xbox One, but most people who don't have a console will likely still go with a PS4 or Switch this Holiday and I feel like people who already own PS4 will want a Switch and not care about getting an Xbox at this point. $500 isn't bad for what the X includes under the hood, but $500 is still a lot of money to spend on a console that is trailing behind the competition right now.

Man I literally just bought one for $225 on clearance at Target. Westinghouse, the tv speakers suck but it's a nice tv for the price!

This seems to be the best bang for the buck right now.

You can get it at Costco for $600 if you have a membership.

They also have a lesser TCL model 55" 4k HDR for $370 at Costco or $400 at Target, Amazon, and BB.

I picked up the P605 55" TCL at Best Buy yesterday, upgrading from a 60" 1080p Vizio. I think it was worth it, if Xbox One X pushes games even better then Horizon Zero Dawn looked on it I will be thoroughly impressed. I had planned on waiting for the 65" version to come out but it has been cancelled so went ahead took the plunge since I had credit saved up.

Sony and Nintendo have done the exact same thing. At least this is the most powerful and justifiable upgrade. (And the Switches excuse: no one even had a Wii U)

I think I dun goofed. Preordered at GameStop (have about $300 credit), but I also have ~$150 Microsoft.com credit as well. Assuming I can exchange the $300 in GameStop credit for Xbox $, I'll wait and see if I can preorder via Microsoft.com. Anyone know if preorders usually open up again (I know, crystal balls and all).

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.

Just curious, with a 4K/HDR you don't think an X1X is worth it for third parties? Forza 7 (& FH3) should look really really pretty. I also wasn't impressed with the PS4 Pro as a 4K machine (the console itself, not the library).

Mannnnn i got a pre-order through amazon then i saw the deal of buying MS giftcards and buying through them.  My order from Newegg took almost 13 hrs to process right after i add the funds to my account it sold out... Now i have 500$ in MS credit and a pre-order through amazon.  Hopefully more will become available from MS. Hell i even take the regular version.

The X1X will probably sell out initially but ultimately sell poorly. At the end of the day it's an upgraded XB1 with minimal difference to the original. Keep in mind they've already said there will be no console exclusives and everything the X1X plays with be playable on an XB1. The graphical differences would have to be staggering between the two, which seems nearly impossible given the limitation. Kind of pointless to be the best console if you kneecap its capabilities.

Ugh I'm so sorry to hear that man! I did the Amazon trick yesterday and it took under 1 hour to process but I was sweating bullets when that happened :(

 

Seems sold out outside of Target and Wal-Mart.com now and Wal-Mart.com was one that came back since a few hours ago.

I'm surprised these are selling out given the price tag. I have a preorder at Gamestop (went there about an hour after the announcement) and a backup at Best Buy. I bet they keep initial numbers low to drive hype but this is too expensive to stay sold out through the holidays.

 

To those complaining about the graphics upgrade - it should be significant for the same reason a PC obliterates the same game on console. Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4 are excellent examples. Developers will always dumb down games for lower end consoles to get a bigger audience. But now we finally have a console that tries to keep up.

The Scorpio edition is "limited", so of course initial numbers are going to be lower than the full fledged release regular edition console...

Ya the limited edition is the main reason its selling out; I doubt their will be a stock issue on the regular non "scorpio" ones at 499. I got a day one Xbox one; so I've pre ordered this; really unsure at this point though if I really want it. Guess I have a couple months to decide. lol.

Yup. Gears 4 in 4k on PC is so much better looking than the regular Xbox. That is why I am upgrading.

I like the fact that we're getting optional SKU's for people that want more power.  I primarily game on PC nowadays for that very reason.  

 

I'd pick up an X if we weren't so late in the cycle.  We're approaching year four for the PS4.  How much longer until PS5 and XBOX Next?  Then again, what else is there to buy at Gamestop with a ton of credit...  :-k
