Well I don't have an Xbox to start with, but I could see myself get this top notch version at a later date?

 

ARE YOU IN? (I bet Koski is)

As soon as it's available for pre-order, I am going to order up mine.  

I was reading an interesting article on WCCTech and they interviewed the developer of ARK, and they had this to say about the Xbox One X:

Quote

If you think about it, it’s kind of equivalent to a GTX 1070 maybe and the Xbox One X actually has 12GB of GDDR5 memory. It’s kind of like having a pretty high-end PC minus a lot of overhead due to the operating system on PC. So I would say it’s equivalent to a 16GB 1070 PC, and that’s a pretty good deal for $499.

That is an interesting comparison, and something that catches my eye for sure.

Cheers,

Outtie

Wondering why you started another Xbox X post when there already is one? Just curious?

Looks like we're finally going to get pre-order specifics this weekend at Gamescon.

I'm pretty sure I'll place my pre-order at Best Buy. You guys/

I don't know. I loved my Xbox 360, skipped the Xbox One, and have been burnt by my most recent console purchase, the Wii U. Maybe it's time to dive back in? I kinda want to wait to save up my money until VR has gone through it's chicken and egg dilemma (expression stolen from a Wired article). What needs to happen first? Solid hardware or big games?

As of yet, Microsoft has been silent on the Xbox's VR, if there is any. Hopefully we get more info, as Fifty says.

I think the vr is a broken project... homes are getting smaller and they require huge rooms to play.... plus breaking stuff doesnt sounds awesome to me. Thats what kids do... imagine with vrs on their heads

From what I have read is that MS themselves won't be doing the VR interfaces, they are going to let third parties like Oculous do all of the VR work, and allow them to hook into the XboxX. So if VR doesn't take off MS  hasn't lost any money.

So, who took the plunge yesterday? 

I did. I went with Best Buy. I hoped to reserve and pick up in store. I'm old school that way. But they were only allowing online pre-orders for delivery. Should be interesting to see if I actually get it on Nov 7th or not.

I only found out about the pre-orders being up this morning... and all the Project Scorpio editions were already pre-ordered. But I did manage to get a pre-order in at Walmart. Won't get it until the 9th tho. I'm tempted to try to EB games trade in for one, but not sure what their stock will be and I don't want to be stuck without my Xbox until November.

Finally got one through Best Buy, unfortunately the vanilla version, and not the Project Scorpio one. But that is alright! Can't wait to play Forza 7 at 4K and 60fps!!
