    Hell Yea, I'm a PC guy, but my PC is currently under powered for most of the games in the past several years. If I were to spend money of a video card, lets say the GTX 1080, that video card along which has only 8 gig of DDR5 ram, which is 4 gigs less than the Xbox One X, then add a new mother board, processor, hard drive, memory, power supply and the OS, when we are seeing the price go up to about $1500 to $2000.

    I own a LG OLED HDR-Ultra 4K curve display 65", I purchased it this year knowing I was going to get the Xbox One X.

    The price of the system is not a big issue and it shouldn't be. The system is extremely affordable compared to PC's with equal amount of power. This system opens the door to some amazing looking games in the future. What we see right now is impressive, but as time goes by and developers start to figure out what they can do with the system, the games are going to continue to look and play more amazing.

    VR/MR to me has a long way to become main stream. It's awesome putting your self in a world that makes you feel like your there, but game developers need to spend more time in making the games look better for VR and play better when interacting with the virtual environment. I think there is room for improvements.

    I'm glad that VR took a back seat for now. It's hard to translate the experience of VR during an E3 presentation. It's not easy to show something that needs to be experience in a different way. I felt that same way with Kinect or any camera capture games. I'm not convinced of the switch controller as well for the same reasons.

    with all that being said, you know my answer. I will be getting and Xbox One X, replacing my Xbox One. I am pleased that my old games will be upgraded and advanced with this new system. It well worth the $499.99, but cheaper will always be better of course.

    That is the sort of money we in New Zealand have had to pay anyway! Xbox One S was NZD$699 when it came on the market. The NZ price for Xbox One X will be NZ$749, which converts to US$540 on todays exchange rate. I'll wait for the price drop before I get one though, or get a cheap Xbox One S!!!

    That's actually a good idea to ask about..dear Xbox One S gamers, is 1TB good enough? Considering that Xbox One X will have 4K games (much bigger files), it's good to know.

    VR is a niche fad similar to 3D.

    Don't expect it to be anything other than that for years, if ever.

    It depends. Personally, I have a 500GB Xbox One that I do most of my gaming on and all my games are installed on a 1TB external drive. I installed them on an external so I could take them to a friends place or play them on the 2TB Xbox One S that's in the living room. The only games that are installed on that system are games my daughter plays. That 1TB drive is very full right now and I've had to delete some games. If you're like me and don't want to have to uninstall and reinstall games all the time, 1TB is on that ragged edge of being enough for current games. I think I have about 20-30 games installed and another 30-40 digital titles that aren't. I'd have to look to get a hard number. If you have no intention of getting an external drive and don't want to uninstall and reinstall games all the time to make room, get as big of a system as you can. If you're open to using an external drive, get the 1TB system, save the money, and put it towards the purchase of a really large external drive. I'm planning on upgrading that 1TB external to something larger very soon.

    All you people thinking games will be full 4k here is a real example that its just not going to be possible on all games (in fact I doubt it will be on most) because there just is not enough HP.

    This is footage from Assasins Creed Origins 4k on Xbox One X. UbiSoft does admit to using checker-boarding and dynamic resolution in the game engine.

    Unless Gamestop offers a nice trade in deal for the one X I'm not getting it. They didn't have a game that wowed me enough to say I have to have it. The best games they showed was dragonball and battlegrounds

    Thank you very much. So players who don't need more than 5-6 games installed could do with 1TB even for Xbox One X with 4K textures. That's cool!

    Only if you just intend to play one or two 4K games. And whether you prefer games with physical discs or digital. If you want to move entirely to digital, then absolutely not.
    If developers actually get on board with the One X and start making their games available in true 4K then game sized will go up A LOT.

    We can't know *for sure* how large will the games be but we can get an idea:

    - Current Xbox games are taking around 50GB of storage on average. However, you already have games like Halo 5 taking 98GB and Gears of War 4 taking 116GB of storage space.
    None of them, however, runs at 4K. In fact, many don't even run at 1080p.

    - A typical 2 hour 4K film requires over 100GB.


    It will also depend on the vastness of the game, of course. But I think now you can get an idea of how much a true 4K game will take. If we're being optimistic, a large title in true 4K will very likely take at least 150GB to 200GB. Which means a 1TB HDD - which is never 1TB at all - will, at best, allow you to install six 150GB games.

    And that's assuming you're leaving 100GB free for apps and other things.


    I have both the Original Xbox One and the One S. The One I went with the 500GB version. It was nowhere near enough. With the One S I went with the 2TB version, mainly because it was the Gears of War 4 Special Edition which looked amazing but also because it allowed me to free the USB port that an external drive will take.

    So, to be completely honest, no, 1TB is nowhere near enough for a 4K console, let alone one that Microsoft asks 500€ for.

    1TB is enough.

    Game like Ghost Recon Wildlands is less than 50GB.

    10 x 50GB = 500GB.

    With 1TB you are looking at enough storage for at least 15 full top tier games.

    It isn't practical for me to buy an Xbox One X. I will also have to buy a 4K tv..and if I'm getting a 4k tv, its not going to be some budget model. Not even a Vizio. No, this tv will be 60-70 inches and cost somewhere between $1300 - $1700.
    Then, I will have to get a new home theater receiver that is 4k/HDR capable with as many HDMI inputs as my current and the same - or better - power ratings. Yes, I know power ratings aren't the be all end all, but this is about efficiently driving my speakers.
    The new receiver will also be ATMOS capable, which means I will have to get new front speakers...speakers that are as good as or better than my Klipsch Rf series and are ATMOS.
    I'm looking at an additional $2,000 *after* buying the Xbox. It's not justifiable.

    Hey all,

    It’s official! The “Project Scorpio” Xbox is called Xbox One X. And it’s pretty, pretty, pretty damn impressive, at least in my opinion. There’s glorious 4K support. It’s powered by eight CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and a GPU packing 40 Radeon compute units running at 1172 MHz. (Check out a full list of specs here.)

    But there’s also a pretty, pretty, pretty hefty price tag associated with Xbox One X.

    So, the big question: Are you going to buy the new console? Do you feel like it’s worth $500 (or more depending on the different models that are released? If so, will you preorder it as soon as possible? And if not, why not?

    I’m on the fence. I don’t own a 4K TV, so that’s no huge draw for me. The price is not insignificant, and I’m not sure I really need everything the Xbox One X has to offer.

    Your turn! Let us know whether or not you plan to be an Xbox One X owner.

    More than likely I will. But, I've been saving up money for the past year for it. I intend to trade-in my XBOX One towards it coupled with the money i've 'saved up' from my best buy rewards card. If not for those, than I probably wouldn't get it.

    I have a 4K TV, but not one with HDR. I'm guilty of wanting the 'newest, latest, best.'

    I will pick one up on day 1. I skipped the One S because I already had a One. I was waiting on One X since I already have a 4k TV.

    Is this going to be abbreviated as XOX or XBOX?
    My preference is XB1X. So the family would be XB1, XB1S, XB1X

    As for purchasing, I would REALLY like to pick it up this holiday, but I would like to wait until there is a 2TB+ edition released. I already use a 6TB external drive with my 2TB XB1S which is already 60% full. I can't imagine how much space would be required for 4K enabled games.

    Can you get an HDR monitor? I need one for when I get an Xbox One X, as the TVs are all too large to fit in my room.

    I'm definitely keen. I've waited too long through poor performance of games on the One...

    I wish this was the xbox one Microsoft first introduced to us when it first came out. They probably wouldn't be behind Sony if that were the case. I'm glad they are going back to their roots and putting some real power back into the console. I'll never forget when that first xbox came out all those years ago. I was immediately hooked when I got my hands on it. It was a true powerhouse back in the day compared to what was out. I'm hoping they can build off this and continue to keep pushing the boundaries with future iterations. Now all they need to do is shore up some more first party exclusives, which I feel they are doing behind the scenes, and Microsoft can get back to being number 1 in the console wars. I laugh though when I say console wars though because this competition in my opinion is great for all gamers which is why I'm so happy the Switch is doing well too. But yeah I'm definitely getting the X!!
