I'm happy with my Day One console, I'll await Scorpio
Same here. Although I love the size of the S, I will save my money toward Scorpio because I see that being $499 at the very least.
Bought my One S day One...hehe Couldn't be any happier. It is beautiful, whisper quiet, and i love the white...
I have to get both i just need that gears console
Neither. Get a good PC since all Xbox games are coming to PC.
I just knew someone was gonna have this troll comment when i clicked on the link
How is a fact a troll? Man people are sensitive.
I'd rather not play with you so hopefully you stick to PC and leave the rest of us alone.
I bet you're the type to buy a Dell and wonder why games look like crap, and blame it all on Microsoft.
Or buy a Xbox one and do the same? Ha!
Why not read the article clearly before spouting the same ol crap over and over again. The article doesn't even mention PCs as an option. What if the person only plays on consoles&PC gaming isn't his thing. Should he run out and start building a PC? Smh. Like it or not, there are millions of console only gamers out there. Infact the majority of my pals are console only gamers and none of them care about PC gaming but I do think its nice to see MS giving fans the option though.
Why does it have to be "he"?!
I bought a gaming PC in spring for XCOM2, now it collects dust while I play my xbox one, the console experience is far superior for me
@Bruce Well I like big TV, speakers, couch, controller. And I use my PC for other things. So the re-synching controller, switching displays, and booting up my computer and game every time I wanted to play was a big inconvenience. I like playing with controller and I don’t want to be playing a game like battlefield against other players with mouse and keyboard or I’ll get owned. I found the font on a number of games was quite small when I outputted to TV, which again could have been fixed but a big hassle. SOUND is the big thing as I don’t have a dedicated sound card in my PC, to use the sound from my video card it was noticeably bad. I could have bought a dedicated sound card and then hooked up an audio cable to receiver just for sound while running an HDMI from video card to receiver, or I could just play my xbox and it’s easy and sounds great. So as a whole I find it a hassle to fire up a game on PC, there’s so many quirks, and then I end up playing against M&K players. No thank you. The extra resolution would be the only thing that’s better for me on PC. Everything else I prefer console
What about all the console only games he'd miss out on?
Not for anything but has anyone even considered that the 2017 launch time could be delayed till 2018, more like mid spring? Yeah Microsoft loves releasing stuff on the holidays. It is just a thought that's all.
Xbox has no exclusives that appeal to me. To make matters worse every Exclusive game is available on PC. So sorry but xbox s is pass. Unless I see a really good deal.
I agree. I wanted to buy an XBO since I never owned an XB but there's just isn't any vast library of exclusive games on the system & the little it has just doesn't interest me.The this new XBO-S is a nice looking model but that doesn't matter if it doesn't have any exclusives,just the same old stuff it's had on the XB360.
cool story bro
My advice.....trade your old one get the one s
For most people, I think the answer would depend on the type of setup you have to play your games....if you've got a 4k HDR capable television, then the appeal of the cheapest 4k blu ray player on the market that also plays games definitely would appeal to you. The fact is we really don't know when Scorpio is coming to market...Microsoft is aiming for Holiday 2017, but what if they miss that target and Scorpio isn't out until 2018? As it stands the One S will be on the market for a year and a half before Scorpio hits, so for those who don't want to wait for a Neo or Scorpio, it makes sense if they have the right gear to take advantage. As a gamer who also plays on pc, Scorpio's specs look really impressive for a console right now, but with AMD's Vega incoming, and Nvidia's Volta architecture also incoming, by the time the Scorpio launches it will be significantly behind what pc's are capable of. And that doesn't even factor in Intel's shift to 10nm chip production, with Cannonlake cpu's also on the horizon. By next fall, the leap in pc gaming will be substantial, even compared to the recently released Titan X and it's near 12 teraflop performance. It's getting scary for consoles, even Scorpio. The race to keep pace is a never ending battle, even in pc land. It's hard to fathom that the 1200 dollar Titan X could be rendered obsolete (figuratively speaking) by next year with the new HBM2 memory implemented in AMD and Nvidia's new graphics cards.
It's not the cheapest UHD player on the market, but it's the only UHD player that plays games. Samsung stand alone is $320 right now, and it's expected to drop below $300 by the holidays. But if one is trading in their OGX1, they can subsidize the costs and make it cheaper overall. I'd recommend it for anyone who has a 4KTV and wants to play X1 games, but beyond that, I'd probably say stick with the OGX1 unless they plan to upgrade their TV in the near future, and if Scorpio is a consideration in the least, just wait it out and not buy either until more information is known. Unless someone is really itching for an X1 console and/or a UHD player....in which case whatever, they probably won't be asking my advice.
Picked mine up yesterday and gave my old one to my daughter. I don't regret it one bit even though I plan on getting the Scorpio day one. It's an improvement over the old one in every way.
Am buying & buying , so all good
Wait for Scorpbone
Scorpio will be my second Xbox console It will keep my eyes satisfied til PS5 As a PS gamer I must admit that it will be a beast of console
