Xbox One X, Minecraft Xbox One LE Console Preorders

X GONNA GIVE IT TO YA

I guess I'm a little slow...but I have the OG fat Xbox and will get a 4K tv on Black Friday.  

 

Can the XB1 X play games in native 4k? And is the XB1 S limited to playing games in 1080p with 4K upscaling? 

 

I was looking at the specs for both, and both have the 4K Optical Drive...so what spec allows for the X to play games in 4K while the S cannot? 

 

Thanks in advance (from the local CAG mental slowpoke). 

 

The 4K optical drive just allows both consoles to play 4K UHD Blu-rays. It doesn't have anything to do with how the console renders games. The big difference between the Xbox One S and Xbox One X is that the X has more (and faster)  RAM, and a much better CPU and GPU.

The CPU is basically the same which is what holds the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro back.

This is a decent reference: https://majornelson....one-x-enhanced/

Major Nelson is still slacking. The Evil Within 2, DOOM (shown at E3), Attack on Titan 2 and a few others will be getting the X treatment. He also links the first Zoo Tycoon which won't receive a patch. The new version is removing the building limit and will get a 4k patch. I'm sure he'll correct himself come November and a LOT more games will be added.


... go to sleep.

Finally snagged an Xbox One X pre-order online at Microsoft Store. Anyone know if I can change payment from credit card to MS gift card to pay the whole amount? Want to convert some GS gc to MS gc.

My creditcard just canceled my payment to target for my preorder for the scorpio at 530am and target promptly canceled said order at 6am. I preordered way back when they first became available for preorder. After being on the phone with target they told me they should be getting more scorpios before November.

 

Just an FYI for everyone still looking for a preorder

what's with target and scorpio cancellations?!  Glad I didn't order mine from there.

So MS is supposed to be announcing another allotment for pre-orders this month right? I'm seriously considering trading my S, but not without a firm pre-order in place for an X.

I doubt they are getting more scorpios. Maybe they meant regular x one x's.

I feel pretty confident that the X won't be in short supply this holiday.

If you missed a Scorpio I have some extras for trade/sale. PM me with offers. Mostly interested in retro and LRG games, but I'm willing to consider most any reasonable offer.

Just got an email from gamestop. Tomorrow 12 pm CT they will have more xbox x preorders available. Quantity limited, etc... Doesn't specify in store or online though.

 

*Edit* Email says visit your store at noon to get yours reserved...so in store definitely, not sure about online.

Pre-ordered the Scorpio edition. How much do you guys think I can get for my regular X1S?

 

Not sure what the point even is. Probably won't even matter until RDR2, which might look better than on PS4 Pro. Meh.......

I'm already in for a Scorpio in store pickup from BB, but this was a great opportunity to change the pickup store to one closer to home.

I am sorry I am a little late to this, but why would anyone buy a regular X when the Scorpio is the same price?

 

Anyways has GameStop released pre-orders of the Scorpio yet?

I don't like the finish on the Scorpio seems like it would collect dust.
