I still prefer xboxox

And I'm glad this thing sold out when I was out of country this weekend because I might have been tempted to pre-order even though I have a new PC with every good xbox game on it already.

Still hoping it does well because I am a tech whore and want consoles to keep up.

I have pre-ordered the Xbox One X and am looking forward to playing games on it. I have a surround system at home and PC really sucks for this, the xbox I just connect the cable and my receiver goes into DTS mode automatically, amazing.

All you do is just select the correct speakers in windows? I had no problem with dolby atmos surround on mine.

Also wtf is up with this 1TB garbage? Does it use the same HDD as the PS4?

For big hands you can buy the Nacon revolution wich is even bigger than the DS4 and has the xbox layout (and still cheaper than the elite). Razer has a big one too for PS4.

Looking at games coming out this fall/winter, choosing November 7 for xboxox release seems pretty dumb. The only "big" game left that I'm even a bit interested in after that date is Battlefront 2, and that's only if they fix a lot of things from 1.

For current Bone owners it makes no difference but for those of us who want to be lured back from Sony it means waiting a while to play all the big holiday releases. They really should have made it available by September at latest.

High-end commercial PC hardware right now can maintain 30fps for the most graphically demanding games at max settings without some serious sleight of hand or downsampling to 1440p.

Maybe a year ago but there's virtually no PC game that I can't do 4k/at least close to ultra/60+fps with a 1080ti/i7700k.

I'm really struggling for reasons to keep my pre-order, beyond "I want to try it out because I used to love Xbox."

Seeing that the few true wireless headsets are ugly af and $300+ Cdn may be the final straw.

If you have a gaming PC, and you don't care about playing games in your living room, cancel your preorder. As much as I love the concept Microsoft is going for with xbox, I can't in good conscience buy an xbonx. Every game on the xbonx will either be available in the windows store on PC and be crossplay, or it's a multi-platform and will be on steam or origin or whatever. There's no reason to buy an xbonx unless you have nothing to play games on already and you don't want a playstation.

My main problem is I can't play kb/m due to hand pain issues and get absolutely wrecked on PC with a controller. Like my fav game on PS4 was RS Siege and I am just hopeless on PC. Plus of course people want to kick you if they even notice you're using a controller.

But then Ybarra just said kb/m support is coming to xbox. They keep shooting themselves in the foot with stuff like this and Play Anywhere.

The Scorpio edition gets a free stand for vertical use but that's the only benefit. The green font (especially on the controller) is so ugly that I switched to regular xboxox.

I tried the TB 800x headset on my PC as I wait for the xboxox and all I can say is it better be a nicer experience on xbox with "true lol" 7.1. Could only get stereo through the controller despite saying it has bluetooth PC support and while the bass was beefy it wasn't any better than my Logitech G533s overall, which are usually $200 Cdn cheaper.

Was also designed for a baby's ears/head as it barely fit at maximum size. And my ears at least aren't very big - never had an ear size issue with anything else.

I find it funny being on the upside down side of the world (Australia) where the situation is the opposite. We used to have strict on-peak and off-peak quotas as well as a "freezone" (some ISPs would offer steam / xbox / apple downloads quota free). and now we can get an unlimited service from whatever provider you want wherever you are and it will be 25Mbit guaranteed (from 2020 onwards).

Australia has this weird policy of trying to fix problems in good faith and actually resolving issues. North America is not familiar with this concept.

I'm having a new dilemma with my xboxox pre-order in that every fall game that I was interested in seems to be a disappointment and I may not have anything to play on it. Don't have a Bone currently.

SW Battlefront beta is bunk, AC Origins looks like a janky mess with Bloodborne wannabe combat, I can't do Destiny at 30fps anymore and it sounds like Bungie hosed up everything I enjoyed anyway, so it's really just down to Wolfenstein 2 at this point. And I guess South Park... can't wait to see Cartman in FOUUUUUUUUR K

At some point PC players are gonna realize I'm owning them in RS Siege with a controller and I'm gonna have to move on.

Why do you buy so much poo poo you don't even know you want? Didn't this same thing happen with PSVR?

I sold my psvr because it was underwhelming garbage like all VR. I bought it because I was impressed by a London Heist mall demo and didn't realize that 5 minute demo would be the typical length of VR shovelware.

I buy things that I'm interested in because I can and want to. Goons continue to be baffled by the concept of full time employment I see.

Despite that I'm waffling on the X for reasons already posted. And I probably shouldn't buy it, you're all right. That's why I'm talking about maybe not buying it on the thread dedicated to discussing it.

One of the things holding me back is that there's no RDR2 on PC, which is one if my fav franchisees, and that living room PC gaming is more cumbersome and bug filled than I was hoping at this stage.

I could play RDR on PS4, but I'm kinda spoiled by 4k gaming at this point, and would prefer to do it on the X if it actually does get the performance boosts it should.

And of course as I mentioned before I've always had a soft spot for Xbox. I want them to succeed, and I want to try the X. If it sucks I can always sell it.

Another example of why I'm buying an X despite having a good PC: at the end of a gruelling 20 minute rapid QTE nightmare boss battle in Shadow of War, the game minimized to tell me I had a fuckin driver update to install. While I was scrambling to get the keyboard (living room set up) I was killed, with the game still not showing anything but sound. My hands are killing me from doing that poo poo over again.

True 4K/60fps is amazing but gently caress PC gaming.

Otherwise, Shadow of War is pretty cool despite that lovely end boss battle (not technically end boss, but probably should be, from what I've heard). I liked it a lot more than the last one.

I have a PS4 but am getting a BoneX to make the 4K jump. I think Microsoft is really getting its rear end kicked by exclusives, particularly timed exclusives for Destiny and the one month advance on maps for Call of Duty. They have next to no exclusives while Sony continues to fund all kinds. BoneX can’t even really do 4K60fps for most games. Sony just has to wait 12-18 months and release a true 4K PS5 and it will eat Microsoft’s lunch.

I was planning on selling my ps4 pro after I get the X since it's been collecting dust but Sony sure knows how to reel me back in.

I'll just wait for the PS5 then. I want a console or gaming PC that can run games at 4K60 without having to break the bank but that's probably at least three years away. I would get a GTX1080Ti but that's a $700+ video card and my six year old CPU would bottleneck it.

Even with an i7-7700k and 1080ti I can't quite hit 4k/60fps/ultra on AC Origins.

Also, Skate 3 & Mirror's Edge X360 just got Xbox One X enhanced. Super cool they are going back and releasing 4K patches for 360 games.

Most people here don't have 4k TVs and some are even hostile towards those who do.
