Just announced at E3.  Looking pretty slick I have to say, and very cool that it's compatible with all existing accessories.

games look kinda meh, well the exclusive ones do.  price is fantastic though (i preordered mine in december from mightyape :P).

 

 

 

best news for me was original xbox games coming to backwards compatibility.  would love for them to sell these as digital downloads aswell, and give some away for free in xbox gold.

Glad that I don't need to go upgrading the Xbox One S I purchased last year

 

Sure the extra speed that comes with a new processor, more RAM and better graphics would be good, but I have no need for 4K as I play on a 24 inch computer monitor inches from my face ..

Yeh, i was hoping the price would be around 650, but ill be happily buying, and hopefully find a good deal on a half decent 4k tv by then as well, they are getting so much cheaper now,

 

I like the varied selection of games they showed too.

I'm sold on the benefits of HDR after playing 80 hours of Mass Effect Andromeda a few months ago.  I only have a 43" UHD TV in our bedroom with the Xbox One S at the moment, until we buy a house in a few months and I get some new kit for the lounge.  So there's no big need for me to go with the X - other than by the time I get a 65" UHD telly I'll probably want 4K games to go along with it :)

 

That said, I'm still leaning towards the PS Pro given the PS exclusives are more my cuppa tea than the Xbox exclusives - so far anyway.

Yeah I get that, their exclusives looked kinda meh.  But I like what microsoft/xbox are doing, really really great console, at a very good price, they do really great sales, have a much better OS.  But theyre doing these things to try and win consumers back since PS4 is way ahead.  

 

PS4 Pro is a piss poor effort at 4k IMO, not really worth the upgrade, sure if you dont have a PS4 then get one, but errr not really worth upgrading a PS4 to a PS4 Pro.

 

 

 

I loved how so many games were "xbox and windows 10 store" which I think means they are cross buy, which is fantastic if they are.  but, I rather have them in steam (nicer experience if they are in steam if your using big picture mode), it would be nice if they worked with steam some how to integrate into that.
