    I changed my gamertag from spaceSuicide to Limerent Death so there's your disclaimer everyone if I'm on your friends.

    So, Xbox One X for $499. Nov 7th... ~30 games or so (i.e. FFXV, Gears 4, etc) will get free 4K upgrades. Only $599 CDN so i'm definitely down day one. Time to get a bigger 4K TV too if the wife will let me lol. 55" ain't cuttin' it for a console this beastly.

    I'm so tempted to get one on Day One (because it's my birthday as well) but damn, the issues first gen and especially first roll out consoles have kinda make me wanna wait and see what the bugs are and get them ironed out first before I go making the investment.

    I want one, but I won't get one. Here's why.

    1.) the price. I paid 499 for my now obsolete day one Xbox. I'm going to wait till the holiday price drop next year or the one after that.

    2.) once I bite the bullet after the price drop, they will announce the next gen Xbox. So again, I'm fucked.

    I'm building a pc and will be gaming mostly on that. But it's nice to have a console as I love video games. But part of me feels like if I buy this , I'm fuckin myself in the end.

    Unless it's 100% necessary I have no interest. I just bought an Xbox One S back in December when my Day One console bit the dust. I have no desire blowing another 500.00 and buying a new TV (yet).

    I'll get it eventually but my regular Xbone is perfectly fine for now. By the time I upgrade to a 4k TV I'm sure this will have had a price drop or two, not looking to drop 500 bucks on a console.

    I don't know if anyone brought this up but it seems like Microsoft doesn't want to bring VR to their consoles at this time .

    Do you guys think there will ever be a day you can exchange video graphic cards out of the console ? Does that make the consoles obsolete ?

    That would defeat the purpose of a console and make it more expensive. Might as well build a pc.

    I was really disappointed with Microsoft's conference, i was hoping they'd have something awesome lined up for the xbone x but there just wasn't anything...at least nothing that wasn't available on PC.

    I'll end up just investing in upgrading my PC then get an xbone now, it'll be cheaper.

    Good. I hope the VR dies soon. Silly nonsense I have no interest in personally.

    Ever had a good (or any) VR experience? We use it at work. I was skeptical as hell about it, and to this day I still hold that people look ridiculous with the headsets strapped to their face - but the technology is impressive and it's actually a pretty cool experience in my opinion. Long as it's something that's an option and not a requirement for a certain game, I'm 100% on board with it.

    I think you both have a point here. The tech is impressive, but alot of the games made from VR have been...pretty awful, making alot of players just see it as a gimmick rather than something that can enhance the experience.

    To be honest, unless you only play on console, and have a 4k tv to really get 100% of what the X has to offer, it is a better deal to just upgrade your PC. Xbox exclusives will always be Windows everywhere ready. The only shitty part is that you will be dealing with Windows store than steam.

    Very true. Although as bad as the Windows store is right now (and it is so so bad!), it will get better...but there isn't really anything i want on there right now.

    The Ultimate Games Sale 2017 is incredibly disappointing so far.

    Nope, not just you. I played the hell out of that game on PS2, really the only RE game I put any amount of time into. But I bought it on PS3 a couple years ago and just couldn't do it.

    So the controls on other systems are better? I wonder why they would change it. Maybe it's a victim of a dated game ?

    Duuude, I had a similar experience going back and playing Gungrave for PS2, except that was just returning to the PS2 game after a decade, as far as I know there was never a port to another system. Shit feels SO jank.

    Resident evil 4 doesn't have side stepping, it's super awkward playing the game.

    different but well thought out controls scheme, you'll get used to it. Then again, there's so many revisions/versions of this game at this point...who knows? What version exactly are you rocking?

    No I believe the controls are the same, but yeah I think it just got dated. Same reason I can't play the PS2 GTA trilogy, too used to modern control schemes I guess

    I was always Playstation fan, mainly because of Gran Turismo - PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, Vita... then nothing. Today I ordered Xbox One X Project Scorpio version because I really like this one, e.g. video about how nicely it is built inside, and I think it is about time to play me some Forza Motorsport. :-)

    Update: Received my first 4K HDR BluRay: Planet Earth 2, I already saw it before in SD and it is amazing documentary. So, I have 4K test disc already :-), now what TV? If I had to buy right now, it would be Sony 55XE9005, but there is also Philips 8602 or maybe OLED 9002...? Ambilight is nice, but I'm still not keen on Adroid as TV OS, do I have to log in with my real account...? I'd prefer WebOS (ex Palm) like LG have.
