There's going to be a lot of navel-gazing over the coming weeks as Xbox fans wonder whether they should get the new Xbox One S. Honestly, it's not a hard question. Of course you should.
If it can Bitstream Audio for Blu rays yes since it would replace my 4k Blu ray player, if not ill keep my current Xbox. But that 4k upscalling sounds nice I need to see it in person before deciding.
I do believe the optical out on the slim can accommodate your audio needs.
I get it the Xbox One has an Elite controller so now the Xbox has an Elite console : scorpio
To alot of people Scorpio or Slim isnt appealing. Despite how some fans are kicking and screaming, having all games available to PC lower Xbox appeal SIGNIFICANTLY. There are three types of gamers that buy console: 1. gamers that hate PC 2. Gamers that are neutral to PC 3. Gamers that already own PC. (over 100 million btw) MS just removed a major reason for market 2 and 3 to buy their console. Xbox now appeals to much smaller group of people than it used to. Fans will try to conveniently only talk about market #1 ,but none of them can tell me why people will spend $300 bucks for no extra games. LOL.
Honestly...yes. I have no need for the Scorpio since I don't have the money to upgrade to a 4k TV that supports [email protected]@4:4:4. It's truly for the people with disposable income.
Yeah I saw what happened with HD... Oh that's not FULL/TRUE HD this 1080i is... Not jumping into 4K when I'm already hearing of 8/12K not only that I'll never pay more than £499 for a telly unless won the lotto or moved house and was for my sitting room or something. I paid £349ish less for a 32" True HD Bravia even does 3D not that I have any glasses but the options there... Oh 3D has failed on a major scale some people use it sure but only a minority unless maybe at say a cinema. I could buy glasses if i wanted to tho... Happy to wait it out and see what happens with the tellys over next 2/3 years before I think about upgrading again.
i can see your point but 4k has now been decided the format of it, thats why 4k blu ray discs are now shipping and 4 channels are being made 8k content is at least 15 to 20 years away however the next logical step is no discs at all, and streaming and no set up boxes to watch live tv ... everything done through apps, such as HBO go, ESPN ... apple have started pushing this process along a few years ago, and its not taking off yet , they removed disc drives from computers, some other companys do that. 4K is now set in stone for 10 years tops, all you need to know is that 2012/13 and some 2014 models can't get 4k content through HDMI 4k devices , that don't mean they can't be used but just not 4k , it would down scale it to 1080 A lot of people will buy the xbox one s, and if people are happy sit around and wait thats fine too, thats the whole point of MS and their way forward giving people a choice, on when to update and when they see when the time is right.
Here in the states it's been possible to buy a 4ktv for $259 for the last 2 years. Even the 4k/60 ones are now down to $499-599. I'm talking 39-50". Soon you're likely to see the vast majority of HDTV lines become 4ktv lines, and you'll see even cheaper prices than now. Anyone buying a tv for more than $150 right now should be buying a 4ktv of some sort, unless they want 3D.
Uummm.....MOST gaming is disposable income. A few rare cases where surgeons and such practice with them. You a surgeon? Or just somebody that doesn't know what "disposable income" means?....lol.
You don't need 4:4:4. 4:2:0 even looks great. It doesn't look like the pictures on the web say. Also Scorpio isn't powerful enough to run 4k like you think it is. Think 1080p on Xbox One, and then realize that Scorpio will run 4k/60 worse than that. In other words, it's MUCH EASIER for games to hit 1080p/60 on Xbox One then 4k/30 on Scorpio. It can definitely do 4k, especially older games (except those older games won't support Scorpio) and they'll be relegated to games releasing in 2017-2020, and those are going to take alot more power to run at 4k/60. As I've said before, it likely could of run Battlefield 4 at 4k/60 with dips, it definitely could do Battlefield 3 at 4k/60. But newer and years ahead ones of Battlefield 1, 5, or 6? Likely not a shot in hell. Indie games, possibility of FIFA or Madden at 4k/60 (small box games), but Open World games and FPS are likely not going to be 4k/60.
I wouldn't say disposable income, rather extra money for it. As for me I'll be getting both the slim for my nephew and the Scorpio for myself. :-)
No... play the games on a windows 10 PC
Build me a system for $300 that includes a controller and can play 4k Blu-Rays + HDR.
Well I have mine pre-ordered but you're putting way to much emphasis on HDR
Hell, build me a $300 pc that could run Forza Horizon 3 in 1080p 30 fps.
PS4K will do all those things tho. With 3.5x the graphics.
Don't worry most of the people bashing and being negative about Xbox one s and Scorpio are Sony fans they are scared we gonna have more powerful console next year
This guy gets it.
Love how W10 has become so popular with the Sony fans lately. MS loves you for supporting W10.
It's free. It's not like it cost $300 like the Xbone S will. I upgraded to Win 10 a couple of months ago after they announced QB was coming to Win 10. I still don't like it that much but I didn't pay a dime for it too. I guess I'll just have to start to like it. But 1 thing for sure, with my R9 390, games run better than the Xbone S ever will be able to. and I love using my DS4.
I don't care who will take my money. I just enjoy my ps4 & pc combo. Xbox is useless to me.
It was forced upon me. Not that I care too much for either manufacturer anymore. I think they're both heading for a shock with these update consoles
I think its hilarious that Sony fans complained about a 600 dollar console, now all of a sudden they're PC gamers. The irony is strong.
Another one of these articles? How many do people need to decide?
Looks like people on Amazon are already deciding.
Yeah exactly, so why the need for a bunch of basically the same article?
Only thing is that then you would have to buy the scorpio in like 6 months time. So i would say its a waste of money unless you have enough disposable income that it doesnt matter.
Why would you HAVE to buy the Scorpio.
You dont but i would. Im just saying they are being released extremely close to each other.
I'm buying them all ffs. I have no self control. I'm a consumer
6 months? I thought it was supposed to be released during the holiday next year. That would be over a year from the release of the S. Am I missing something?
No youre not. I was assuming S wont be released this year.
Really? Because Holiday 2017 is not 6 months from August 2016. Nice Try tho!
Day one buys for both Xbox one S & Scorpio
I won't be unless something happens to my x1.. no point as I don't have a 4k TV and have no plans on getting one in the near future
Just curious as to why you don't want a 4K TV? It can't be price since they are dirt cheap now and you can get a 49" for like $350.00
Not sure about n4rc, but I only bought my current TV 2 years ago, it works perfectly fine and there's absolutely no 4k content, besides Netflix, available here anyways and I don't see it changing within a year's time. Once stuff starts to change over in my country I might want to switch, but I think I'll wait until there's a console that has a whole bunch of gorgeous 4k titles out since I'm not much of a regular TV watcher anyways. And something tells me neither the Neo nor the Scorpio will be able to deliver that, am assuming the next gen after them is. So who knows in 3 to 5 years I might get one, but not now...
No real reason specifically.. trying to pay off my visa and I have a nice sharp aquos 52 led.. Tho I suppose that doesn't even matter as I use a gaming monitor now that I just got.. a benq 1ms 27" And I've heard input lag is pretty bad on those low priced sets but havent researched it much myself
A year from now, people will be asking you if you should buy Scorpio and you'll see just as many comments as you do here now saying "yes". I say just wait. If you already have an Xbox One - just play that, or do something really crazy and spend that money on a PS4 if you don't already have one and pick up the exclusives you've missed out on (for cheap) and play them while you wait for Scorpio.
If you don't have a xbox and you actually want one, yes. If you have an xbox and a 4k tv, wait for scorpio.
Buying this because of the rather cheap price, the exclusives, and the fact that it'll look very nice next to my PS4.
No, no you should not.
I"m buying one for the Ultra 4K player.
Uh I want to buy one now with The Witcher 3, I know I am far being you guys but, oh and looking forward to B1 too sick!
I would wait for Scorpio if money is a concern.
I am buying it solely on the 4K Blu-Ray Drive and 4k Streaming to my LG 4K 65" TV since I already have an Xbox One. Ive been waiting for a 4K stand alone player for awhile now, so this is great, since it will also play my games to. Stand alone 4K Blu Ray players will cost more than the Xbox One S, without the option to play triple A games, so to get a 4K Blu Ray and streaming 4k Netflix/Youtube etc option, AND, a console to play my games, up-scaled to 4K, all in one box, for that price, is great value and yes, I will buy a Scorpio when it is released late next year because I love tech and that machine will be a beast for a console. The Xbox One S will then go into one of the bedrooms as a second 4K Blu Ray streaming device with my other 49" 4K smart TV and the Scorpio will sit along side my home theater and main 4K lounge TV.
Of course you should.......not. (fixed it)
Yes stupid...why are you reading this? Go pre-order that 'ish!!! Even if you NEVER use it as a gaming device, it's already the best 4k Blu-ray player on the market and is $100 less than the next cheapest competitor....and it has HDR, and 4k Upscalling...so why wouldn't you if you game?
I am considering it as I wouldn't mind clearing up some space, especially with how much smaller it is than the current Xbox One. I wouldn't mind getting a 4K TV one of these days as well to truly enjoy it.
NOPE! Scorpio or PC, no need to waste extra cash even if it looks better than the OXBO.
Depends, if you plan on buying a 4k Blu-ray player soon I'd but this instead I'm buying on so I can have an Xbox in my office
it would be stupid to buy it just wait for scorpio
Next year Scorpio will be announced at E3 why bother with this? well i guess some people have their own agenda but if i were in people pants i would do myself a service and buy a RX 480 instead.
I would, but I have a Xbox One elite console, so I'll wait until Scorpio.
