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


HTC Vive and take advantage of the new lower price along with the trade deal for $100 extra trade credit. Zowie PC esports monitor. All depends on what you want or need for a setup really.

Can always cancel a pre order, can't put in a pre order if its sold out.  I pre ordered the switch and cancelled 2 weeks before release, I expect to cancel my X pre order as well but maybe something amazing will be announced that will make wanna keep it.

 

Feel bad though for the people who bought $500 of xbox live credit from amazon for 10% off and when they went to place their X pre order from the microsoft store, it was sold out.  That... is kinda funny, but sad too.  I think I've spent like $150 in 5 years on the microsoft store, I couldn't even imagine being stuck with $500 of credit.

ugh now I want a Xbox One in this color...

 

That 1X Looks incredible, wish it was real! 

 

I got one console looked in a GS & one at amazon. Most likely getting the GS since I got 1k in credit there. Amazon just had the pre orders up 1st so I jumped the gun.


Up for trade/sell:

Xbox Credit $45

Lawbreakers (PS4 Digital Code)

knowing microsoft and their desperation for sales, this Xbox X console will be bundled with a free game for the same price ($499) by december  or January.  I will wait patiently.

If one doesnt pop up on MS store before they sell out ill just wait until its restocked.  I know i want one eventually, and I buy all my games digitally, i have destiny coming up there is 1/5 of it there haha.

Of 2018? You're joking right? A free game bundled within 2 months of launch? You're very likely to be waiting quite a bit longer. If they were even considering bundling a game that soon they would have done it right out the gate not a month later. Maybe as early as spring but no way even January. It's just bad business practice and Microsoft is not that stupid.

So one of my people from Gamestop told me they would be getting some more preorders but it isn't every Gamestop only the ones that sold out within an hour or two. Hope that helps someone who's wanting one!

I'm really excited for the release of this, to drive down the ps pro even more and I can buy it.
XBL Gamertag: MrRidickulous but I sold it so I probably won't be on there anymore.

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).

It's worth it if you don't have an Xbox already but I see no reason to other wise. I love my PS4 Pro but there are more games on it that for me show off 4K more. Horizon, inFamous, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4, Last of Us, etc. are all games that marvel graphically for me. I'm sure Forza will look great but maybe if I was more of a fan of the series I'd want 4K support for it. 

 

I don't think it's worth it unless you don't have an Xbox and if you can get it for $100 less.

Doubtful. Maybe March/April when tax returns come through.

 

I think Nadella approved the X because it's a test to get XBox owners to go the surface route. They want to see how many loyal users/future owners are willing to spend $500. That way down the road Microsoft can make money on each console sold vs the One S that has seen cuts to keep up with the competition. If MS wanted to even have a snowballs chance in hell against the PS4 (which they can't at the moment outside of the US) they would have released the X at $350 or $400 and sustained big losses for market share. Between small investments of first party, pushing MP/games as a service/micro transactions in first party and the XBox X - I think Nadella wants to make the XBox a more profitable machine going forward.

YMMV, but I asked about it in store yesterday and two people said it was only available online.

If the Ps4 Pro had the 4kBlu ray id be all in, without it Im perfectly content with just a ps4 and 4k tv setup, Giving me more reason to get an X1X; that being said I really dont play the damn X1 enough; but waiting for sony to combat this 4kblu ray drive has been like waiting for paint to dry.

If I wasn't using credit I would wait for the week after black Friday and see if target included it in the 15 percent off sale they seem to run online every year.

That gets it closer to that 400 dollar price range.

Scorpio Edition is sold out at Best Buy. In store preorders should be available whenever they turn on the regular sku.

Just cancelled mine from Target. They wanted to hold $530 of my money up until release date, nah I am good. Not that excited about it anyways, but always bought all my consoles at launch. I will wait until the stores start their preorders, feel much better that way anyways.

I was able to place a preorder through the gamestop app just now for the X1X. Not sure if I'm actually gonna get it, or if it's an error as I thought they were sold out. Wanted to use my trade credit though.

I think Microsoft's play with the X is to just mesh all games with their PC counterpart.  So any company wants to release a game on Xbox can release on PC and vice versa.  Most PC games push graphics, etc.  So they will just set graphics to what the X can handle and boom, every game will be X enhanced.  Can't imagine it will be much work at all for developers.

Just did the same.  I thought about waiting to see if there would be a white one next year, but that trade credit was burning a hole in my pocket.

You can always try in store. When i pre-ordered my snes classic at gamestop today dude told me he still had two project scorpio for pre-order if i was interested. Also they only require $100 down in store. Just call around to couple local stores and ask if you are interested

I was just about to pull the trigger at GS after randomly looking to see if preorders are available. Didn't check this thread first or else I would have seen the 2 previous posts about the availability. Decided to wait and try around my then tomorrow. Can't see myself paying $35+ in tax when using trade credit (my balance exceeds the amount of the One X). Sucks how online doesn't account for tax free.

Lost my original account...neushane.

If you pre ordered at best buy they will have a midnight launch for it (same day as COD I think too)

https://www.bestbuy....s=960&keys=keys

 

They also have the regular non Project scorpio edition listed there, not available for checkout yet but same price $499.

Got one pre-ordered but it's been a while since I've bought a console game. Any suggestions on where to find a cheap digital copy of The Witcher 3 on Xbox? Looking forward to seeing how it looks and runs on this thing.

It'll probably be on sale on XBL again soon. Think it's been on sale 4 or so times this year.

Buy discounted Xbox credit from the Trading Forum on CAG nd wait for a sale to increase your savings.

GOTY has been on sale for $30 quite a few times on weekly deals. Maybe even $25 once?

You can also buy stuff off the website without owning a XBox One.

 

BTW The Evil Within is $5 this week. Batman Arkham Knight $10.  Starwars Battlefront Ultimate edition is $6 though not sure how popular it will be come SWB2. Great deal on The Evil Within at least.
