It's 448 when you trade in a 500gb with any game... So 200 off.
Can't complain.

My eb is getting 3 Scorpio editions and probably 10 standard editions.
25 odd pre-orders so gonna be supply issues initially of he's right.

Temped to do this, I have Rise of the Tomb Raider sitting in it's shrink wrap from when I bought it at JB. $200 is not much better than I'd get off a random on Gumtree without the hassle, when do you need to trade the console in?

YOU PEOPLE ARE FUCKING CRAZY!!! :loco:

Why the FUCK would anybody purchase an Xbox One X? :?

1. There are NO exclusive games, so whatever XB1 games you boys are jerking off over...relax, it's coming to PC and/or PS4 also. This was Microsoft's chance to shake things up by showcasing actual XB1 EXCLUSIVE games, and they fucking blew it by demonstrating for the whole world to see that XB1 has absolutely no exclusive games. :roll:

2. Paying $649 for a brand spanking new generation gaming system is entirely understandable, but paying that much for a mid-cycle hardware revision is utterly preposterous. :down:

3. Xbox One X will FOREVER be gimped by it's shitty outdated jaguar processor and joke of a CPU. Instead of wasting your money on an Xbox One X - you are better off spending that money on a new graphics card - so you can play all your XB1 must-haves with SUPERIOR graphics/resolution/frame-rate (in addition to enjoying free online gaming, and of course cheaper games considering how much more expensive console games are compared to PC games). :wink:

4. This thing is absolutely DEAD ON ARRIVAL. The Xbox brand is already dead in Japan and across Europe, and everywhere else - it's getting it's arse massively kicked by Sony. Even with Sony's incredible lead and position at the top (thanks to it's EXCLUSIVE games)...they can't even sell as many PS4 Pro's as they would like at $399.

So how the fuck is Microsoft (who is ridiculously behind Sony this console generation), going to manage to convince anybody to pay $500 American dollars for a system with no exclusive software...and for a piece of hardware that's selling point is 4K gaming, when for instance in America - only about 5 percent of Americans even have a 4K television. :roll:

Seriously...PC + Switch + PS4 generation FTW! 8)

Can I just say it's stunning just how badly M$ has dropped the ball after the 360, one of the best consoles ever.

Their consoles seem to be a bit like their Windows releases - only every other one is actually great.

He's right though. The Xbox One has been a disaster from the get go, and it's not getting better.
Xbox needs games. Nintendo aren't cleaning up with the Switch because of the power of it.

I don't say this as a fanboy, I say this from a position of concern. The industry needs Microsoft. The industry needs healthy competition.
Would Sony have got off their lazy arse and picked up their game mid-PS3 cycle if the 360 hadn't been eating into their marketshare?
It's as if MS just don't care any more. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if One-X is their last console. And that would be very sad and very bad for the industry.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Xbox One X is Microsoft's last console. Shareholders have been begging Microsoft for years to exit the console gaming industry, as the division has bled BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of dollars. :cry:

Leading respected tech journalist and Microsoft insider Paul Thurrott had this to say just last week.... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Quote:
Analyst predicts an Xbox One X failure in the near future

One of the dirty little secrets of Microsoft’s Xbox/gaming business is that it has never actually turned a profit.

So I was curious to hear Mr. Nadella utter these contorted words last night: “Our gaming business is now more than $9 billion, and growing profitably.” So $9 billion is revenues, not profits. So growing means that revenues are growing. And growing profitably means...what? That the business is “becoming profitable”? Or is it just growing revenues positively? Was this a misstatement? What does that mean? Here’s my guess. He means usage and engagement are growing.

I can state this with certainty: Microsoft’s gaming business is not profitable.

Who cares if their gaming business isn't profitable? All their other endeavors can inject enough to keep it afloat. What could Nintendo rely on if their gaming business wasn't profitable? Playing cards? :lol:

Excellent. Quantum Break, Forza Horizon 3, Witcher 3 and Halo 5 are all getting updates which is what I want to see. Bummed that Mass Effect Andromeda probably won't follow suit, would like to see MGS5 added to the list as well.

Haven't you been saying this since the OG XBox?

Actually no I haven't. I have only ever said that for Xbox One. I do believe this mid-cycle hardware revision is Microsoft's final attempt at success (i.e. the xbox division making a profit for once), but when they realise the Xbox One X is dead on arrival, they will finally pull the plug on developing another gaming console! :cry:

Nope! :P

Unlike Michael Pachter, Paul Thurrott is not just a respected tech journalist but also a Microsoft insider. He knows what's up... 8)

$200 for a One S is pretty damn generous really. Might talk to EB.

I haven't preordered a one X yet, anyone offering some nice perorder bonuses? All the places I've looked are just doing the system for $649. Be nice to get a free game or something thrown in.
