What games are you downloading 4k packs for?? I didnt think any were released yet

They haven't posted any significant new information on Xbox One X since E3.

They wonít start the big dumps until a week or two before launch. Letís face it, given how certain parties parse and twist every word you say, fo you blame them for waiting until they start mainstream press? I suggest you hit Mike Ybarra on twitter if you have specific questions. He does answer them when heís able to, and he definitely is in the know on the specifics. Just understand the answers to many of your questions are constantly in flux up until very close to launch. Theyíve said everything they need to do so people can make an informed preorder. And if youíre not sure, or they havenít told enough for your satisfaction, , then wait. If you have Scorpio on preorder, youíll have a week or more to return it, or you can cancel it.

On the pre-order release day I had pre-ordered through Walmart with some misgivings about delivery, but managed to get one from Microsoft later in the day. I've been going back and forth on keeping both and replacing both of the consoles in the house - original plan was replace the launch unit and move the Xbox One S to that spot - and had decided I'd cancel the Walmart pre-order. Only I can't.

There's nowhere to cancel your order and the website lists nothing for cancellation options. All you can do is wait to get it, then take it back to a Walmart nearby or have it mailed back.

Seriously?

Calling them is your best bet. The cancel button is only available for the first 30 minutes after you place the order.

The new Dashboard Update just became available for all. I'm downloading as we speak so I can start downloading these 4K patches...

Now all I need is Amazon US to confirm release date shipping.

I'm looking to get an external drive in prep for the X, now that the new XBO OS update is out.

Is there any reason to get this external drive that requires a power brick:

http://a.co/gkuRYXF

over this one that doesn't?

http://a.co/4vUZzLV

Only a $5 difference, and I like the smaller form factor of the second one and the fact that I don't have to find a power outlet for it :p

Desktop drive vs. Laptop drive. You won't see much difference in performance. As for power usage, the USB powered drive is on when the XB1 is on, the wall powered drive is always on. Unless you unplug it of course.

Also, i was just at my local Walmart today and seen no marketing material on the One X, i was a bit surprised, i was expecting to see something! No mention of it whatsoever.

Is MS even marketing the One X? This launch definitely seems different from you average system launch. It feels as if MS is gonna allow most of it's marketing to be handled by the hardcore gamers getting the word out for them, as MS did claim the One X is not geared towards your average consumer.


Just hope their marketing isn't as lazy as Sony was with the Pro. There are still people i talk to who have no Idea what the Pro is! All they know is "PS4".

I seen this on another site, you may need a transformer brother, although not sure how consoles work with this kind of stuff, consoles may have their own built in. I'd check with MS customer support before plugging the thing in if i were you.

"There are four differences between using US appliances in the UK : the voltage ( US = 120V, UK = 240V ), the number of watts the product draws (different for each product), the frequency ( US = 60 Hz, UK = 50 Hz ), and the plug on the power cord. In order to convert, you must use a transformer, which is a unit that you plug into the wall and then plug your American appliances into."

You no longer need a transformer with Xbox One S and X. Internal Power Supply is universal. The only thing you will need is to change American two prong cable to your country's plug for the socket.

The Xbox One X is multi-voltage, just like the Xbox One S
So you just need a AC cable from your region or a adapter, that's it

I have zero games listed in the Enhanced tab, even though I sat there and watched FM7 download the 4k assets, and it's just shy of 100gigs installed. I wonder if it's cause it's an older Xbox and not an S. Weird.

I have to admit that it seems like MS has completely hit the brakes on promoting this.

My hope was that MS would go all out trying to promote this. Mainly I was hoping it would push older titles to get updates.

However, it did lead to Witcher 3 getting a patch on both this and the PS4 Pro.

If you took advantage of EB's trade in deals you could get the X for barely any cash out of pocket. Between trading in my 1TB S and a few games I only paid $70 for my X.

You need the new Xbox One Fall Update, then follow these instructions:
https://www.windowscentral.com/how-d...gular-xbox-one

Once you enable it, give it a day or so and you should start seeing things update. I think Forza 7 is the only items listing 4k assets installed for me so far, but I haven't checked in a couple of days.

I see quite a few people lamenting what they consider to be a lack of marketing for the One X right now. From what I've seen, MS is gearing up for a really big push sometime quite soon. Major Nelson didn't do a free code friday last week because he was busy with prep.

I'm just wondering if that hype will start this week, or next?

I'm leaning back towards keeping both. Got Network Transfer working well last week, so I might just sync all the HDD and upgrade all the boxes at once.

No need for transformers with consoles anymore. That's a thing of the past.

I'd say look at what is your preferred platform. If you prefer playing games on PC, then go for that. I like doing my gaming on console, so I'll be playing all the major releases on there. Forza 7 and Witcher 3 DLC will probably take most of my time though, then some Call of Duty, Battlefront 2 etc. If you have a PC, then there aren't really any day 1 launch exclusives for the new xbox, it just comes down to if you prefer PC or Console for gaming.
