Pretty exciting, just a few more days!

On another note, Tyrese Gibson just became a PS4 fan after reading your thread title.

Feel like an opportunity was missed for
Xbox One X |OT| Call me Hank

Or

Xbox One X |OT| Scorpio.

Still, excited to pick up mine with AC Origins on Tuesday!

edit: Tom Warren mentioned that it's louder than the XB1 - more akin to a standard gaming PC.

I’m actually really glad I never played Gears 4. Now I get dat enhanced 60 FPS feel.

Reading a lot of similar sentiments as last year's PS4 Pro. It's good if you want to play games that are well supported, but it's certainly not for everyone just yet.

Early take from the reviews:

Very impressive hardware, with not enough enhanced software (yet) to showcase it.

Assassin’s Creed seems to be the highlight, measurably more impressive.

I don't agree. This thing should be reviewed as a consumer product with a proper cost-benefit approach aimed at the actual end user. The technical side is only interesting to a small niche and will be extensively covered by Digital Foundry and the like.

What I mean is they are saying things that aren’t accurate, not that they aren’t being technical enough

USgamer says the Pro can’t do native 4k which isn’t really true and then lists a bunch of X games as native 4k when not all of them actually are

I don't even need to read any review to summarize 99% of all the reviews.

"Impressive tech, but for only the few."

You get a certain downsample on Xbox One X tho. Where in Pro you are in the hands of the dev doing it.
Yeah, you've got down sampling effectively providing some aliasing and the potential for some more steady framerates thanks to the extra power.

The main take away from that was that it wasn't really making too much of a difference to how games were looking on a 1080p set.
