Wow. The fact that there is not already a stand alone Xbox one X thread tells a story on it's own.

Like my thoughts on VR here
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10017&start=125
I just want to go on record as calling Xbox One X a failure. Complete flop. Microsoft have so badly misjudged the video game market.

I don't feel good about it. As a matter of fact it pains me as an Xbox fanboy to make the call. Since Peter Moore left and Kinect, it's just been a downward spiral. Awful. :(

I don't know. It doesn't quite excite me the way it did when it was first announced. Sony has the better exclusives and 3rd party support which means I'll stick with team blue for the foreseeable future. I only want an Xbox One S now for BC really. The Xbox One X, or something close to it, is what MS should have released the first time around to compete better with the hardware advantage Sony had.

I pulled $150 from eb last week, which was a down payment. I'll spend the money upgrading my pc when I need to. I have no use for the new Xbox even though I have a tv that could use it.

I'm about to own TWO PC's that kick the crap out of the XBONEX. No need to spend a cent on this console.

I'm all in. It's exactly what I expected it was going to be, so there's no surprises. I'm not sure if MS have misjudged the market when Phil Spencer actually said he expects One S sales to dominate One X sales next year.

You're the only sensible poster on the forums now. Most of them have probably gone to other forums (where is Lestat? did he disapear? Isn't he the Xbox fanboy here?)

Anyway I would have to play wait and see. The need to keep upgrading console is probably going to be the norm now as people trade in their old consoles to upgrade to the new console and get the 4K graphics.

This console MUST exist if MS want to save face and show Sony that they too can make 4K ready machines. And if they want developers they need to get in early so they can start working on content early to challenge sony's dominance.

The thing is I still believe they can win if Sony fuck up. Let's say Sony start to talk about TV a lot when PS5 comes out, people will revert back to Xbox as the hardcore brand.

Nintendo has obviously found its niche (people who want console games on the go).

Technology is becoming too scary and I think we need to fear it as it will be used as spying devices by the NSA (as edward snowden warned us all) and nobody seems to be caring about privacy rights and hacking.
You're thinking "Is he talking about them hacking smart phones to use as tracking systems and bugging the microphone so the NSA knows what tentacle porn sites I visit?

No. I am referring to microchips at microscopic levels (AKA Spy Dust or Spy Powder) to develop the "internet of things" where every person will be spied on from remote satelites and using the 5G network where low earth satellites can see where you are inside your own home to see through walls and know what you are doing and if you think bad things the chips will be able to communicate through the wifi network from your house. There is mind control application to this technology and people who are being gangstalked may already be test subjects of this stuff now.



If you want to fight the NWO you must become a low-techer. (johnny mnemonic) You either join the corporations or the cyberpunks. Me? I want the machines to be my slave (sex robots that will wipe my bum while playing an mmo so I don't need to go to the toilet to poo) not used to enslave me. (the NWO plan to trick transhumanists into believing they can be gods if they join with the matrix - you are seeing it now as people are obsessed with the smart phones. Look outside and notice everyone is looking downwards? It's an addiction)

I guess this is the punishment for the nerds being bullied in highschool. They finally got their revenge on all of us by uniting with the satanic illuminati bloodlines to become our overlords. What 5G low earth sattelites will do is make it so you can access the internet even in remote locations on earth. Google will pretty much spy on all human activity to gatehr knowledge about you as the AI advances and learns what decision humans make before they make it. At some point we will be surpassed in intellegience and humans will then be given an option to upgrade to transhumanist version of yourself through biotechnology (editing your genes to make you smarter and have higher IQ - see CRISPR technology) or you starve. At some point the machines will have the ability to tap into other dimensions of reality (quantam computing) and the spirits in those dimensions then possess the technology and then live inside the machine as a conscious being (the computer being it's physical body) which the occultists will worship as a god. (see the black box in Macross Plus anime - portrayed as a pop idol in that OVA and with people worshiping it as fans of the music which is secretly using microwaves to brainwash them and cause mind control in the military soldiers who don't have a strong will)

I know it sounds scary and crazy but think about how fast technology has advanced in the past 100 years. We had the horse and cart and now flying around in jets and antigrav ufo with a tiny timeframe. Your time for deciding if you are with God or with the satanists is slowly getting narrower each day as they conquer human race on a global scale. (the only people who won't be brainwashed are those using technology for good to remove the mind control, but these guys will get censored eventually)

They should have targeted 60fps@1080p (made it mandatory for all games) instead of maybe? 30fps@4k.

And buy Rockstar or something.

MS should buy Bethesda first. Get them to make a open world Perfect Dark FPS game set in cyberpunk sci-fi world.

When they bought Rare and didn't do shit with them, it broke my heart. Candy Arse laughed as he thought MS owning Rare meant the death of nintendo but in reality all it did was piss off Rare fans. lol

This. 4K isn't even the norm yet, great to develop towards but most people still only own 1080p TVs. The PS3/360 was the 720p generation, just made sense for the one after to at least address 1080p consistently. I'm not discounting picking an Xbone X up but it would at least need some compelling content to make it worth it, not least of all because the Windows Store on PC is the worse gaming store front in existence.

Amongst all the reasons I game on PC, 60fps is the main one. Console devs and hardware OEMs really need to put this whole detail > frame rate mindset aside.

I'd much rather upgrading my PC than buying an XOX. Main reason, I can run ( or brute force) my way to 60fps on any game. 4K is the big buzz word but framerate is just as important, or more important for me.

I'm there day 1, but I'm an xbot and I have a 4k telly so it'll be good, I think it looks fucking awesome tbh... But it would be nice to choose between 4k and 60fps as framerate always comes first.

It's a big jump for xbots, much bigger than ps4 to ps4 pro

Grabbing one but yeah these mid cycle refreshes are not all that thrilling, in my mind it just delivers what we should have got 3 years ago. Ms fucked the Xbox pretty hard.

Couldn't agree more. I don't think this console is bad value at all, it's just for people who can't navigate to https://www.pccasegear.com/

Sounds like most people dislike the idea rather than the actual console, which is a beast.

Nothing has been made mandatory and nor should it. The constant talk about 4K is just because that's where the playground console wars are fought these days - pixel counts. It should be (and is) completely up to the developer with how they use the hardware. Some games would benefit more from a visual enhancement rather than hitting 60fps.

I can't think of a game, aside from a sprite based JRPG/2D game, where I would choose resolution over framerate. Uncharted 4 is a good example, that game would have benefited from a locked 60fps experience and a little less fidelity, there is a YouTube video of a guy that sped the game up - looked a hell of a lot better. 1080p should be a bare minimum with the option to drop down to 30fps/higher resolution, similar to the way Nioh does it.

Even on PC, when my GTX 760 was starting to struggle with some games, I'd dial back the detail to maintain 60fps. Just a more pleasant gaming experience.

But it's not just resolution, they can add a myriad of improvements rather than simply more pixels.

Such as what? Genuine question because I just see a system with an upgraded GPU and cooling system with an overclocked CPU that was gimped even in 2013. It's like that top heavy gym rat that never does leg day.
