    Thoughts now that it's out in the open?

    Personally, I was originally thinking about getting an Xbox One S for the exclusives and the 4K blu ray player, but decided to wait until the Scorpio was revealed. After watching the press conference and the reveal as the Xbox One X, I don't even know if I want to bother with an Xbox One, period. Or at least wait until the price drop. Not much in the way of exclusives (and even those present the "you can play on PC too!" Issue), the $500 price tag probably wasn't wise, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only thinking One S and One X sound way too similar in name (can't wait to see the confused parents at holidays).

    That price tag certainly means they aren't going for a mass market. And while I like Forza, I'm not spending that much coin on something that's going to collect dust otherwise.

    The safe bet will probably be to do what most people did when the Xbone first came out, wait until stores are basically pleading with you to take it out of their inventory with incentives.

    I see we're continuing the modern trend of dumb, potentially confusing console names.

    Every generation I usually pick one console, then after a few years the exclusives tempt me to get the other, so I usually end up with both. This time I've felt no desire to grab an Xbox One. Most of the games I like are multi platform, and the ones that aren't seem to be coming out on PC as well as Xbox.

    I'd been waiting for the Scorpio to play all the awesome Microsoft exclusives I was missing by only having a PS4. Now that it's coming out there's like....no games I NEED IN MY BODY RIGHT NOW.

    Just not much in the way of exclusives. Meanwhile Nintendo just announced monster hunter and I'm going to cave like a little bitch and buy a switch so I can play fashion hunter, lol.

    I think for a lot of people like myself, it's not really the price just the "why" aspect. Halo already came out and from what I gather it's still buggy to this day? And I'm not that big on Gears.

    But for anyone who wants the most powerful current gen console that thing wins. It's pretty nice specs wise.

    its like the pro to me. when I get a 4k tv int he future I'll think about it, but for now I don't see any reason to jump in

    MS def needs to step up it exclusive game though if I was going to consider it over the pro .and last gen I was a huge 360 fan

    Yeah, while cool, I don't see a reason to upgrade from my One S yet. I'd rather take the 500 and put it towards a PS4 slim and Switch!

    I have a beefy PC, so it doesn't make sense. Not to mention XBox exclusives are comming to PC now.

    it's sure it's been mentioned somewhere before, but the new name reads to me like a bad msn user name. xXxXBoxXxXx13

    So apart from 4k what does it do that the current One S doesn't do?

    Only thing I can think of off of the top of my head is that it will take original Xbox games... Which Backwards Compatibility is the ONLY thing I'd give Xbox as an edge over PS4.

    Multi-generational backwards compatibility? Now I'm intrigued. There's been some games for Xbox that I've been dying to play lately (mostly just Ninja Gaiden) but they were never mastered for 360/XB1 so they're kind of limited for options besides well, buying an old Xbox.

    But this certainly changes that

    Like I said, Backwards Compatibility is the one thing I give the Xbox One over the PS4 (well, that and the 4k blu ray player). It seems hardly feasible that the PS4 drive couldn't handle older generation games (I guess in PS3 game's case, damn you Cell processor) without an issue, but I guess they just want us to buy them again digitally (and even THAT they aren't doing a good job of). And I still don't get how you can buy classic games on PS3, Vita, PSTV, but not PS4?

    Welp, I bit the bullet and put a deposit down on a Project Scorpio edition Xbox One X. Think this will be the first time I own every current console from Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony. GameStop only had 3 preorders left by the time I got there.

    Wait, is the next console going to be "XBox One Esh" or XBox One X One?"

    It looks like a nice piece of hardware for sure, but could they have chosen a more confusing name?
