Scorpio

Only a few days to the reveal, just picked up a 75" 4k TV for it, so I hope it lives up to the hype.

Been dabbling in PC gaming, went over the top with a gaming rig, trying my hardest to like it. Must say, visually, it's awesome. Console is way behind.
Something to be said about plug and play, always works. I hope the Scorpio can bring me best of both worlds.

I'm so glad I was able to hold off on buying the S or any X-Box one. Im waiting and ready for the Scorpio.

I'm in a bad spot right now, I have an original Xbox One. So No 4k Blu-ray.
A 4k Blu-ray player is more than an Xbox One S, but I don't want to buy an S, have my original and then find out the Scorpio comes with a 4k blu-ray as well.

If Sony had put a 4k blu-ray in the Pro I would have bought, At least then it's a justified purchase.

I really hope Scorpio is an October launch. I already own 4k Blu-rays with no way to play them.

Is it available for PC as well? Most of the new games are only got released for PS and Xbox. But there's a whole bunch of people like me over looked who loves PC games.

Is what available for PCs? Scorpio is a console.

Microsoft did reveal a few titles which will be available for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs like Forza Motorsport 7

Pretty sure most in house Microsoft games will be Xbox and Windows 10.

I've only played Horizon 3 on PC and Xbox,
The PC port is meh, my 980 can't run 60fps on my 3440x1440 ultra wide with out dialing down the settings,
Where dirt rally, although not as taxing of a game can manage easy manage 90fps with ultra settings.
Forza Apex also runs 60fps fairly easy.

Horizons optimization has improved with updates but still very clear it's optimized for Xbox.

Can't wait to see what some optimized titles look like on Scorpio (One X) I'll be pre-ordering.
Might have to break down and get the 4k blu-ray player before it launches.

Picked up a One X, worth every penny and then some.

Hopefully 3rd party dev's really sink there teeth into the horse power.

Forza is so pretty, having a hard time racing just looking at everything instead

Played Titanfall 2, its pretty good, Halo 5 is crazy good. For sure need some more titles.

Added a 512 GB SSD too, Forza load times were ridiculous. Needs an SSD in the console

For me, trying to justify the need for one of these. The same old argument i had is i have a decent gaming pc. Most games available for Xbox have pc ports. No really exclusive games. I have a PS4 pro. Several great exclusive games for that. The Last of Us. Uncharted series. Horizon Zero Dawn.

Currently run Linux (Solus 3) and dual boot to Windows 10 when i want to game. I have recently come back to the pc to play through "Dying Light". (great game btw. The sounds the zombies make still totally creep me out)

I also have many Steam games to get through. On hold is Dishonored. I have Dishonored 2 on PS4 but will wait until i finish the first one.

So i love the specs on the Xbox X. There is nothing enticing me to get one. If anything i would probably get a Nintendo Switch first.

Do hope the Xbox X does well tho. Would not mind dumping Windows 10 and going exclusive Linux.
