Run laps?? Nah son...will the Xbox box 1 one X have games that run and look better? Of course it will, its the more powerful hardware. But unless you pause and zoom in like Digital Foundry did with the Tomb Raider comparison you'll probably wont notice a huge difference in motion.

 

On the exclusive front they simply dont have the studios that Sony does to make big new IPs, and the ones they do have are regulated to churning out the stale franchises you mentioned. So I dont know where you're expecting these new awesome Ips to come from.

Phil Spencer has said they have exclusives lined up but aren't ready for show, needs to give them a couple more years.

 

im glad there are delusional people like you to keep this industry afloat. somebody has to overpay so the rest of us can get the deals.

How so? I remember reading an article about trying to build a pc with similar specs as the X1X for $500 and they couldn't do it.

Rdr2 has exclusive PlayStation content

I'll take higher frame rates (j/k it probably isn't going over 30fps) and graphic fidelity over horse armor.

 

I wonder how much Flippageddon effected the Scorpio's pre-order numbers?   Would so many people have pre-ordered the console if they didn't have thousands in trade credit?

Probably helped Gamestop pre-orders a lot but it sold out everywhere though.

$500 for the performance is a steal though. Sure, $400 would have been better if you wanted MS to bleed dry. Also, I'm glad this thing is doing well because if it didn't then MS might be out of the console race and that would be good for no one. They aren't stealing anyones exclusives (ATM anyways) and they are the leader in BC and goodwill gestures in terms of console updates. Losing MS would give Sony even more free reign and it would be really ugly.

The closest I think a PC site came was $625. But I remember there were some weak links in that build, plus, consoles have MUCH more reliable optimization. PCs get well done games, Doom, GTAV, but 90% of stuff needs a while to work well on most systems. I recently played FEAR 1 and 2 on my 1070. On 2, the menus don't properly scale with resolution bumps, it's just strange, the rest of the game looks great but you load it and see those SD backgrounds. Ugh. Then you get the crazy windows 10 updates that do the absolutely dumbest crap, like the anniversary update that nuked system scearhes. The fact that I had to download a couple MB sized program just to search my own PC properly makes me amazed that a console built like the X is being made by the same company. How the crap do you screw up the search program so bad that it can't find a file based on a search of the EXACT full file name.

It's a little premature calling the Xbox one X a success and turning the Xbox division around. Come back in a few months and see how it's doing.

I cannot forgive microsoft for getting rid of Windows 7 calculator and replacing it with the pos that is the calculator in Windows 10. Luckily there's a work around, but like you said these sort of things shouldn't be the user responsibility.

That's the truth of course. I don't own a time machine sadly so we don't know well this thing is going to do in the holidays or how much of a boost it's going to get to help against PS4 sales. Hint: PS4 is still gonna win. Everyone is just curious how much MS can climb back before the X2/PS5 is announced.

 

I wonder how much MS has to throw at PUBG to keep it exclusive for longer. Looking at PC sales that might be worth more of an investment then some first party titles, if it even sells a forth of what It's doing on Steam. Would be a great "console" exclusive title.

That's not really the point. The point is that anyone who wants to pay the higher price for the 'Most powerful console ever', would probably just as likely be ok spending an extra couple hundred to get the best possible PC available.

The claim that RDR2 will be the definitive version on X1 is pretty laughable if PS has extra content. I have no idea what the extra content will be, but any graphical difference between the X1X and PS4 pro version will be negligible.

Do you realize that is impossible? You need a few extra hundred to just get the best graphics CARD available. You need several thousand more to get the best PC available.

Well I'm not a PC gamer (clearly), so I'm not familiar with the prices, and was just trying to get across the point that you can get the same games on X1X or PC, and PC gamers are just as likely to upgrade their PC rather than indulge in an X1.

I preordered from Gamestop online with partial credit.  I should have enough credit to cover it when it launches.  Think I can do a return / rebuy  in store so I can pay with full credit and save on tax?

Technically you should if you haven't opened it. At any other store it wouldn't be a problem. GameStop is shady as Fuck so really it would depend on the person there that day. They usually just make up policies on the spot in my experience.

RDR2 having anything exclusive on PS4 means RS won't even be able to acknowledge or demonstrate the benefits that the game will have on X1X.

Sony has partnership with EA for Star Wars Battlefront II console bundles and marketing and it is going to be XBox One X enhanced.

Eh, Im not really bothered by it cause most of the time the content is not worth a damn. Probably will be some throwaway side mission or something...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is there a list somewhere of all brick and mortar and maybe even all online stores that will be selling Xbox One X's? Like since Kmart, Sears and Radioshack are out of the games business from around when the current gen launched in 2013. While you can buy games at something like a Family Video, Family Dollar, Five Below, or 7-11 they're not in the business proper.

Im asking cause I'm wondering what non-obvious non-specialty store might have these at launch without crazy lines... for example, Khol's of all places sells consoles and occasionally has decent black Friday deals on them. GameSpot Walmart Best Buy Target Amazon, those will be swamped with lines around the corner. Maybe even Toys R Us.

But if a Khol's, Macy's, JCP, Boscovs, Bontons, friggen Burlington Coat Factory were going to carry it you might actually A) have line luck B) have lots of units at a store that simply doesn't take pre orders. Shame about American retail, it was nice having the extra choices like KB, EB, Curcuit City, more ritsy mall department stores that sold "toys" and electronics, plus the aforementioned Kmart Sears and Shack.

Which is exactly why you won't be seeing EA mentioning anywhere that the X1X version is superior in any way. Expect all the marketing for that game to be using PS4Pro footage.

Doesn't really stop the internet from getting the word out. We are more and more connected and once digital foundry or someone gets the word out, it spreads. Trust me, if Battlefront 2 is better on X1 people will know once the word gets out. Maybe the few people that don't have access to the internet will be oblivious to it though.

I'm on the fence about getting this system upgrade early in its life cycle. I can only make it happen if I'll be decently compensated for a trade-in of my original Xbox One.

$100 for an original Xbox One. $150 for an Xbox One S

GameStop is giving an extra $50 for X1, ps4, and switch trade ins right now. Original X1 trades for $150 and slims are at $175. That's probably as good as it's going to get.

This. The only DLC/expansion pack I've "enjoyed" has been the game of the year content from Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion. Shivering Isles was really good, but nights of the nine was just good. Other than that, almost every other DLC I've played for any other game has felted disjointed and didn't have the same feel as the vanilla game.

 

Also I might get flamed for this, but I really didn't enjoy Undead Nightmare that much either in the original RDR.

Shopko, Fred Meyer, Meijer (?), and maybe some other regional stores in your area.

so just to reconfirm, no one was able to make a preorder for instore pickup? Part of the fun with new launches is getting console at midnight.

I got in-store pickup at BB and WM. WM pickup date was 1 or 2 days after release, I think.
