#XboxOneX - Initial Reactions? #XB1X

Postby McMurphy » Sun Jun 11, 2017 3:59 pm

Microsoft's E3 press conference just concluded on today at E3, and it showcased the power of the upcoming Xbox One X. What are your initial reactions?

As I was saying in chat, I don't know if it will pull gamers traditionally not Xbox buyers, but it could appease folks who have been waiting for good news for the Xbox One. The name, in my opinion, is not great. It makes me think of the whole Wii U scenario.

But that is just me. I don't know what I am talking about. What do the rest of you think?

Yes, yes, yes. It's on my list to buy this year...
I would've liked it to be called Scorpio, but alas :(.

Going to preorder tomorrow (if I can). Can't build a 4k HDR 60 FPS pc for less than 500 smackers and the PS4 Pro only does a bit of 4K. Can't wait to play Star Wars BF2 on it this Christmas.

Name is a let down, but what's in a name? They could call it the Sunshine Farter of UHD and I'd still buy it providing it plays Metro Exodus looking as good as it did in the reveal :o That sucker was amazing. And that new IP from BioWare looks incredible.

Just out of curiosity, who watched the event on Mixer in 4K? I'm just wondering, because everything on my TV looked utterly amazing and I'm curious if the people that weren't blown away by it weren't watching it in 4K, HDR to see exactly what this machine can do.

@Dunk. I did not watch it in 4k but was fairly impressed with what I saw. Though, that $500 price point is pretty stiff for me. I do not believe all xboxox games will run at 60FPS, I believe they said Minecraft would but I would be surprised if other games could as well. Either way pretty decent for a 4k gaming machine.

I like what I see but I am going to build a gaming PC instead of getting a 4k PS4 Pro or XBOXOX. I am opting for 60FPS at 1080 until down the road. Pretty excited to see more of Anthem as well! That game looked awesome.

I think MS is finally come around to fixing where they initially messed up. Their messaging seemed pretty clear in that XBOX is for pushing limits and for BC which is great for xbox'rs. However I have a pretty good gaming PC that while a touch behind still plays things 60fps + on ultra or 120 on high cuz my primary Monitor is 144hz. That being said any game I'm interested in is also hitting pc and I could take $500 and upgrade my pc. Between my PC and switch im all good

The way I see it--- if you plan on getting a 4K tv then it is worth it to pick one up.

I plan to eventually get a 4K tv. I could get a $300 4K blu ray player-- OR I could get a player that also happens to play xbox games! 4K netflix- amazon- 4K movies- and games with HDR, yes please.
