    Anyone getting one?

    Anyone seen any good bundles online? There was talk of a currys bundle with 3 free games, but I cannot find it on their website.

    Will I be the only person in the UK actually bothering to get one?

    They may make future FIFA versions with support for the 4k consoles. Still, I'd sooner get a Pro than the X, at this point in time.

    There's no rush, I'll see how it all goes...

    Nope, I had an Xbox one from launch, and a PS4. The XO ended up collecting dust after Gears 4 was finished and by the time I'd sold it I hadn't even logged on for 7 months whereas I'm on the PS4 daily.

    A newer slightly upgraded version of the same console is of no interest to me, still the same poor line up of games no matter how spangly they'll look.

    Too little too late from MS I think, they've lost this generation already and need to start planning for next gen and how to win that one. I'd blame their catastrophic launch on how the XO has bombed but I think it's purely down the lack of must have exclusives, compared to Sonys line up they're light years behind.

    Anyone have any idea when the next generation of consoles is due out? Seems like ages since the last ones.

    Thanks. Been putting the kids off for years now, with promises to get one as soon as the next gen version comes out. My resistance is crumbling but reckon 2019 is doable.

    Nope. They’re being fobbed off with iPad games. They’re only 6 and 8. They can wait.

    Another issue is all my friends have switched over to PS4's. I am seriously thinking of switching over whenever Sony releases their new console

    They have iPad's they'll be okay. They've probably given up hope by now anyway...

    Did you have both current consoles then? Or you no longer play with them?

    I hear ya tho, I switched from XB360 to PS4 and left loads behind, some have come over but I've made loads of new friends on PSN, especially VR players. If next gen XB is better than PS I'll switch over again.

    I have one pre-ordered but will be cancelling in the next week if they don't start showing off some games.

    It's two weeks until release and where is the footage of the improvements and what it actually does? We've seen Forza, Shadow of War, Quantum Break and Rise of the Tomb Raider. That's not enough to get £450 out of me. Where's the other hundreds of games promised?

    Was looking at getting one, 50% for likes of FIFA and next GTA in 4K and 50% for the bluray player.

    I'll probably end up leaving it for a while.

    I'm going to get this eventually - even if it's just for playing games with less frame rate lag.

    Have mine pre-ordered as well.

    Most of my games are on an external HD anyway thankfully. Saves me time. Hopefully the 4K update for each isn’t too bad for most games.

    Few of my mates are getting one. I have been team Xbox since 360, elite and Xbox One. Once the Xbox One was announced I switched to PS4. Main reason was for the games/exclusives that PS have.

    Since switching I have no regrets. Xbox One X is by far the best console but games over performance. Not to say Xbox does not have great games but they just don't have the ones I like to play like Uncharted, Last of Us, etc.

    Pre ordered mine yesterday. Looks like a lovely machine. Might get rid of my PS4 Pro when I bring this baby home.

    Simply haven't got the time anymore to play all these amazing consoles.

    If I upgrade from Xbox One S to Xbox One X, will I be able to transfer all my save games? Fair enough, I only play GTA and FIFA but still.

    Yup! If you don't have them on an external HD, you just login as normal and re-download them, or do a network transfer as it's supposed to be faster if you still have the One S. your saved data will sync then when you open up the game (Xbox Live cloud saves).

    Seems well expensive for what is a pretty old gen now but with 4k.

    As a side note, I bet the next gen has a ridiculous price bump. I'm going with £800

    I sold my Xbox One X
    To be honest, I think this latter stage of Xbox has been poor.
    4k in my opinion isn't that great, you'll tell yourself it is, but it isn't
    HDR on the other hand is a nice improvement, but you get that on the One S.

    Games like PUBG and Blackout apparently ran awful on the basic One and One S, but did 'ok' on the One X. That isn't a good sign for this gen, and I think they'll be wanting to aim for next gen soon.

    I jumped to the PC, and my only regret isn't doing it sooner. Games just work

    PUBG works great now on the X.

    I have all systems but I find myself using the X most these days.

    Mostly because I game share so the games are cheap as feck for me on the X... Though I do always get my FPS games on the PC as it is just the way they should be played.

    I was just thinking with FIFA CE being £70 SoTR being £50 and CoD being £50 it means you get the console for £259. That is if you haven’t already got the games and want them.

    Agreed. I have the original xbox one and was tempted to upgrade to the X but I couldn't justify the price just for 4k for a console which will be dated in a year or two.

    Paid 2 grand for a new pc with 4k. 4k isn't all that magical, but playing games that run smooth on ultra graphics is worth it.

    Haven't touched my Xbox since. Just shows how far behind the console is, and what more they could do if they wanted to.
