    Despite the issue with the popped grip, I wouldn't use any other controller with the Xbox. It's just fantastic. Playing games on one of the normal pads feels alien these days, the paddles and customisation are really worth the added price in my eyes.

    It may be hard to justify initially, but it's easily worth the investment!

    I just wish that Cheese101 would admit that his animosity comes from not being able to afford an Xbox One X.

    I popped on the Elder Scrolls Online last night for the first time in probably a year. It looks lovely with the X update! A properly good-looking game now.

    It's not about the cost, it's just that the value proposition isn't sufficient.

    Sorry, that was actually my attempt at satire.

    I've got an Xbox One X. I think it's great.

    It's not about the cost, it's just that it's too expensive.

    My favourite response about the value proposition is "I don't play multi-plats". I love a good exclusive as much as anyone, but surely multiplats make up the vast majority of games released on both PS4 and Xbox One? When I look at the games I own on PS4...Battlefield, Doom, Wolfenstein, a couple of CODs, Alien Isolation etc. Yeah, I also have the likes of Killzone, Infamous, Resogun, etc, but most games appear on every system under the sun these days.

    The no games argument is aimed at 1st party; it's about unique reasons to buy in.
    Obviously it's a false statement of fact at face value but it's more about MS's commitment to 1st party content and there's some truth in that.

    No games is such a silly thing to say of any of the current consoles. Sure it might not have first party stuff right now but what is so bad about third party?

    Some people might prefer the live ecosystem or the controller. And in this day and age of paid online how many want to subscribe to both Sony and Microsoft? You make a choice based on personal preference. For me if it's graphics I choose PC if its a sofa game I choose Xbox. In fact the only playstation games I buy are the first party ones.

    And regards to buy in. People buy in to a platform for many reasons, first party games are only one element. I will say that yes Halo was a reason for getting an Xbox but it was the other elements which kept me on Xbox including the overall experience.

    I hate the phrase value proposition its borderline contradictory and yhej used incorrectly anyway. Talk about objective or subjective value although it's all mainly the latter.

    Value proposition is MS marketing

    I dunno, if i am going to spend Ł400+ on something i want to know i am going to get use out of it.

    However, there are enough games out already/going to be released be they exclusives or multi plats is not important to give me confidence i will get my monies worth.

    But then, i buy 20-30 games a year.

    In fairness, I do agree with you on this. I know I'll get my use out of the X1X, but I do wish MS would invest more in first party titles. Back in the early X360 days they invested in quite a lot of new IP and exclusive 1st and 3rd party titles. Some turned out better than others but the committment was there. Kameo, Perfect Dark Zero, Gears of War, Project Gotham, Forza, Too Human, Chrome Hounds, Blue Dragon, Viva Pinata, etc. I'd love to see that level of investment again.

    Yeah. there's no negative to it. It'd be more games that consumers would buy exclusively on the platform, making the platform more enticing.

    I'm hopeful of seeing at least one new ip in the next year or so. I did read an interview with Phil Spencer stating that deals have been signed. Whether we see or hear anything soon is doubtful.

    That's the thing,games take a few years to develop so the fruits won't be seen all that soon.

    For some reason my nephews console doesn't have gold despite me setting it up as the main console?

    Your account on his machine and set that console as your Home console, leaving your account there. You've then signed in your account on your Xbox, which isn't set as Home, and he loses Gold?

    There's a repeat of the Black Friday deals at the moment, go to the store on Xbox, then deals. Wolfenstein 2 and the Evil Within 2 are 50% off. Doom is only €15.

    Might have to pick up evil within 2 still trying to pluck through 1 on 360. Becoming a chore at the moment heard 2 is much better.

    Shopto currently doing the X with Forza 7, Dishonored 2, Doom and Fallout 4 for Ł450 (regular price of console).

    Who said this thing wasn't going to have price drops/bundles for a long while? It's being discounted in some way (total package price) constantly.

    I wish I'd have took the plunge and got the X rather than the s. Still some great deals about.

    @Derblington

    Did anyone say that? It would be the first time in history that retailers haven't offered bundles for hardware that isn't supply constrained.
