    @Vice.Destroyer Smaller. It is cool to see how things have progressed as there is a cabinet displaying all the boxes, including the OG which is massive compared to what we have now.

    Ok. I'm a bit confused by something. I've got everything on an external drive. Will I be able to download any of the 4K upgrades before release date so I can just plug in and go on launch or will there be a mass of downloads once it's plugged in and set up?

    @beastmaster from what I understand Microsoft will download the assets to your games once it detects you have an X so I'm afraid it will be on or after release date.

    YOU get the choice in the new dash because they expect non 4ktv owners to buy the X so you can enjoy the other features without using up space for 4k

    So i would like 'purchase' some of the games with gold in advance of the Scorpio release and was wondering if it's similar to ps+ and i could get the games without actually owning the console? Could i just create a new account on xbox.com and get free gold trial and add to library to have on release day?

    @jamesi

    Yes, it's possible and actually easy. I did it with Xbox One games when I had a 360 and Live Gold but didn't yet have an Xbox One.

    But if he only gets a 14 day trail can he a) still get the GwG and b) still have access after the 14 day?


    My understanding is that you lose access to XBO games when your Gold lapses. That's different to the 360 GwG tho.

    But once he goes back to Gold in November will be get access to previous GwG games?

    Yeah you lose access to Xbox one games if you go silver but get them back when you renew

    @Ror that's pretty cool, so much technical thought gone into it. Won't be long before we try it out :)

    Would have been tempted to get this but i've bought most of my library on ps4 so the logical purchase was the ps4 pro despite its limitations in comparison to the X

    @StaffyDog Yeah, looks really well engineered :) They've really got their shit together with hardware. Think the Surface was the start of that.

    I have my monies ready, but won't be getting one right away (allegedly).

    I hope to pick one up in dec or jan perhaps, but we'll see how long before my desire for new and shiny takes over what little common sense I have!

    I'm essentially trying to finish some of the pile of shame before leaping onto newer and shinier for games which will hopefully have been designed to take advantage of the extra horsepower. :-)

    I just cancelled my preorder.

    Mario Odyssey's proximity means I'm not going to be wanting for something major to play, plus I'm going to be changing my car at the end of the month too.

    I can wait until Crackdown 3 comes out.

    I've just discovered the XB1X supports freesync! I bought a curved monitor last year and it happens to be freesync over HDMI which I thought at the time would be a waste for me as it would only benefit me if I had a gaming PC. Well now I have the choice to try it out as its supposed to be a game changer, although since I bought a 4k TV it has been collecting dust.

    I just bought a 4K TV, because my Panasonic plasma broke at the weekend. I actually preferred the picture on the Panasonic but to be fair I haven't watched any 4K footage yet.

    Any way, I'm tempted to get an Xbox X, is there any 4K footage I can view on the Xbox One? Seems like an oversight to not have a 4K advert for the 4K capable Xbox

    Was tempted by the X but seems pointless as I've yet to get a 4k TV which is essential to get the best out of the system.

    Well, no, because it doesn't support 4k.

    Ahh, that's a pretty compelling reason.

    I assumed it would be able to play/stream 4K video, just does have the power to render 4K games.

    So when the original proposition was TV TV TV, they didn't have the foresight to support 4K output?

    @Rodney if your internet speed is fast then try some 4k youtube

    I'll be looking out for examples of "next generation gaming" that we kept being promised at the launch of XB1/PS4, precisely because I'm not really interested in getting a 4K TV but I am interested to see if the One X allows games to be genuinely better than the same game on One S

    The OG XBO doesn't have the necessary HDMI version to output 4K. The One S does.

    Well you'll get supersampling on a 1080p screen, so you'll have a very nice upgrade to image quality at the very least.

    I see you can still get the Scorpio edition on Amazon. May have to be quick though.

    Yeah it sold out everywhere for the Scorpio edition, might just have some pre order cancels for sale again.
