So whats the verdict so far?

Any good, worth the price/upgrade, does it have that new console feel?

I was going to get one but missed pre orders and forgot, now I have a slight interest in getting one but not sure, so guys how do you feel with your new purchase?

Honest answers please and is there any regrets?

Cheers and enjoy if you did get one!

EDIT: if you dont have the console feel free to comment ask questions etc but dont give a review unless you've actually experienced one.

    It's so bad. Never again...

    Be glad you missed pre-orders.
  • Really, what makes it that bad?

    Really, what makes it that bad?

    Paying $500 for nothing more than a slightly quicker load time on games. I'll wait for ps5.

    Is that an actual review or are you saying that because you watched YouTube videos?

    I wouldn't go to YouTube for a review. It's my personal opinion on it. The resale of a normal Xbox is rock bottom, so you'd be lucky to walk out of the door only paying $350 after taxes. Just not worth it to me.

    I used that $350 to buy a pair of boots to look at lol

    People saying pointless, do you have one? If its pointless then any console upgrade is.

    People who **** on it probably never had one to begin with and are just trolling. I got mine today and the difference is very visible, especially on Assassins Creed and Forza. I feel like I'm legit on a nextgen console. Looks stunning on my 4K OLED. Even Halo 3 looks and feels like a proper remaster. The games that aren't optimized as well won't look that great however. But the console is just out so more games will be better optimized going forward. This is now pretty much the console to play multiplats on for me.

    Because it can run 4k, 60fps. You wouldn't be able to build a PC this powerful for 500 quid, so it's worth the price.

    Which games run at 4k 60fps?

    I would get it, if it had PlayStations exclusives.
    If you have the disposable income and feel like upgrading. May as well get it

    Depends. Do you like sim type racers or arcade like ?
    I'm not that big on Forza mainline series as it's too sim for my taste but prefer Forza Horizon 1,2,3 as they are a joy to play for me. Fun to the max. I just tried Forza 7 to see if it's as good as they said it was. Went back to Forza Horizon 3 and that game is still gorgeous. Even more so.

    Probably rather go for Forza 7 over Horizon 3 tbh. Was addicted to Gran Turismo 3 back in the day on PS.

    Want to get the new GT Sport but heard that the content isn't great compared to Forza 7. Graphics wise and all that it should be great though.

    Creed is stunning, but then so is Tomb Raider, surprisingly.

    I just got the Scorpio console. Already have the 4k curved Samsung, Creed, Wolfenstein 2 and Tomb Raider. Good to go. Quite fancy Shadow of War as I loved Mordor.

    Be interesting to see how Forza plays and looks.
