When does Microsoft have their big online sale?   Is it over Thanksgiving/BF or is it over XMas time?  I know they usually have some good stuff, I can't remember when they roll out the real deals?

So GS business plan is let you rent unlimited games about a week after their release (the time it takes for used copies to show up after holds) for six months and then keep a game that traded in for $85 giving them a net profit of negative $25? I love GS.

 

I agree, this just seems too good to be true.  If you weren't allowed to keep the game at the end of the 6 months it would make some sense to me but this just doesn't seem right.  I get GS has to start thinking outside the box and come up with new revenue streams, etc.  But this seems like a bad idea from their end.

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). 

 

When it comes  to playing games, the X is going to  be able run a lot of games at native 4k.  Some will be checkerboarded 4k.  The S is not going to be able to do that.  I don't think they'll be a difference in playing 4k ultra blu ray's.  But when it comes to games the S isn't in the same league as the X.
