No rush for me. Put a reservation on one at Best Buy and will go get it after work.

Don't get me wrong. I'm just focusing on the X I think because I think it should have been held off for a whole new gen. The thing is a beast. Maybe wait until 4k has more of an install base and they've worked out what are gonna be some of the standards going forward such as HDR and whatever it's competition is. Like...the TV tech usually comes, a standard becomes clear, the install base grows, consoles come out taking advantage of all the features. It seems like this is a bit backwards. The console has hit while they're still working out the kinks with the TV tech and prior to there being a really solid install base. The Pro's incremental upgrade makes more sense with the uncertainty of the tech still being worked out. Once those things are finalized, then come out with the beast of a console. And sadly...I have no idea if I'm making ANY SENSE AT ALL because I'm falling asleep typing on this tablet. It keeps falling out of my hands creating an "Inception" kick. Having said that, I'm done until tomorrow, so I don't make any more of an ass out of myself.
4K is taking over mate. It won't be long till the majority of TVs in your local store will be 4K (if not already). There isn't a single AV guy left saying any different. This is the whole reason why a mid-cycle refresh was independently thought necessary for the first time ever by BOTH Sony and Microsoft. And even the X1X isn't beast enough to lord it over 4K at high frame rates on graphically intensive games, so every last ounce of processing power will be worth it. With the added benefit of being able to play multiple generation's back catalogues (and experience significant improvements) this is going to be the most useful new console I've played at launch. Usually you buy 3 or 4 games and unless they are awesome (which launch games often aren't) and can keep you going a long time, you are soon waiting for the next legit hit.

My first impressions.

-Fast. The dash board is much more responsive. I noticed with my S that it was a little sluggish. It is now zippy.

-I have all my games on an external hard drive. I know the X's hard drive is "supposed" to be fast. Not sure if it would be faster/slower/same as the external connection. Might transfer over my top 3 games to the internal to see.

-Visually appealing. It looks nice. It is small and does not stand out. The S I had standing vertically which you noticed and being white did not help. The X sort of blends in. I got it from Bestbuy and they offered a Free skin and would apply it. That's not for me. The wife did not even notice it lol.

- Shadow of War.. wow. it sure does look nice. maybe I am making up things in my head but to me it looks amazing. Looked good before but not this good (to me). I think I may not have had the highest color depth selected (In the Xbox's settings) before which might be helping ? But details are great, colors are popping.

-Gears looks great too.

-F13th ever since their graphic update was not "smooth" for me. I am hoping the increased power of the X helps, will check that tomorrow on my day off.

It just arrived! (nearly 6 pm the day after)

I think there were delays with the Project Scorpio versions.

I'm holding off on purchasing the X.

The S still suits my needs just fine. First thing
I'm doing is getting a 4K television. After that,
I'll re-evaluate within the next year or so.

Cool. It will probably be cheaper by then too.

You'd think they'd try and go more future proof with consoles like they kinda did back in the day, but there's the new business model they have I guess.

Oh, absolutely. Sorry if I made it seem like 4k wasn't gonna be the new standard, but just like when HD hit, it's gonna be a while before the benefits are fully felt. There are gonna be alot of cable companies that will have to replace a significant amount of wiring to neighborhoods, etc before we start getting 4k content like we do regular HD fair. I wish they had been smarter and worked a bit harder on future proofing when they started upgrading the lines all those years ago. The data size for 4k is ****ing astronomical. I honestly wish they'd decide on a goddamn HDR standard more than anything. That's more important than the 4k aspect honestly. It's where the average human eye can tell the most difference.

That or they need to finally bite the bullet and start making them more upgradable similar to a PC. I'm aware that we get into the whole just buy a PC then argument, but I don't like PC's. Don't know why. I have no good explanation, but if consoles could figure out a way to make switching important components out easily, that needs to be the next step.

That’s true on HDR. Totally obvious the difference in a side by side comparison, and also a pain that the format isn’t 100% decided. Watching cable shows in 4K will vary massively by territory as well and will take a while before it is commonplace, sure. For big gamers (who spend a large enough proportion of their time gaming) and have the disposable income, I would say now is the time to upgrade. Everyone else would be better off waiting till the market catches up and prices come down.

Hell, prices are pretty damn killer right now honestly. Unless you want an OLED or QLED. Other than that, the only real reason to wait is for them to finalize a damn HDR format. They've already got some sick ass Black Friday deals posted, and they've got brands coming out of the woodwork that I've honestly never heard of supposedly making amazing inexpensive displays. In most of the best of categories involving starter to mid price 4k TV's that every tech site listed seemed like it was from a manufacturer that I was unfamiliar. I need to go see some of these with my own eyes, but you can still get a Samsung or Sony super reasonable right now. And they are, as far as I'm concerned, the best TV's on the market. (Until I check out the newbies for myself and possibly change my mind)

Samsungs and Sonys are great yeah. I thought you were saying that it was the wrong time to buy though, or at least the wrong time for gaming consoles to push 4K? If the deals are that good (I don't even know as I've not looked since sorting out my lounge and bedroom about 18 months ago) then surely it's a good time as it won't be long till casual consumers also jump in.
