20 pound deposit and then you can trade in or pay the rest on the day you pick it up. If your bank account can’t take a beating. Worry In November. In store I did

A £20 deposit on a pre order HOT

Thanks
Hmm I pre-ordered it yesterday without the deposit. Is this new?
Check the stock allocation at your local store. Mine only had between 5 and 10 apparently so you may need to act quickly.

Is there no deposit my college lied to me
Only 7 allocated at the Uxbridge store!
I love the advertising for this 'new' console:

  • Great for 1080p screens—games run smoothly, look great, and load quickly

Implying of course that games run badly, look bad, and load slowly, on an Xbox One! Genius
As it's a niche product, why didn't they ditch the 4k drive, and instead add a larger HDD or SSD for the price?

An ssd wouldn't help the console tbh. It would add to the cost. 500gb ssd would be pointless. A 1tb ssd would be where it's acceptable and a 1.5tb-2tb is where most gamers would want their drive space at.
An SSD would help. I've got a 640Gb SSD in my PS4 (Slim) and it's quicker at loading and snappier on the menus.
Iirc the first console preorder they did a £20 deposit on was the halo reach x360.

Wonder what the trade in price on a Xbox one (non s) would be? Wether they will offer a better trade in price

Game did an offer for PS4 pro for 50% off with old PS4 and 5 games. They might do it for Xbox one X.

Sony Ponies?? oh, i see... the tired argument that one is a Sony Fanboy nonetheless, despite owning a switch, xbox one s. AND i pre oredered 2 x Xbox One X consoles..

Just see 4k bluray drive as a luxury for a gaming machine, i have an xbox one s, and have zero 4k discs. Don't use it, never will use it. and it doesn't need it.

Even if you have a vast collection of 4k blurays, you probably want a better player having spent a fortune on the overpriced discs

Should have removed it and knocked 100 quid off, or instead improved the storage.

I'm in agreement... I can't see me ever shelling out for a 4k blue ray disc but an extra tb would have made me much happier...

I do have a vast collection of uhds and feel the S, which the X will replace is adequate for playback, why buy another box? Uhds are cheap if you know where to buy them.

So other gamers are subsidising you 4k bluray collectors, they should maybe release a budget version with a dvd drive instead, should have been one at launch which may have opened up this machine to a larger audience who are unable to afford.

So you know the cost to Microsoft to add a UHD drive per unit is, you must to give it such an arbitrary monetary value. Well what is it?

This is the reason why microsoft are getting away with only putting out 2 retail games during the whole of 2017 halo wars 2 and forza 7.

Reminds me of the kinect 2.0 and the hd dvd drive for the 360.

They don't force you to buy it and it flops - hd drive

The only thing they havent tried is giving customers the choice at launch.

I agree an ssd would work but a 500gb ssd or a 240 would be low budget.

My 1.5tb of games wouldn't fit on that and I wouldn't really want to down size for a small speed boost.

Online multiplayer games you won't get off the start line any faster than the next guy.

For general play it would be a nice luxury. But until 1tb+ ssd drives drop in price. I wouldn't force game companies to sell a console with an ssd.

Come'on it's GAME we are talking about. It'll be an Xbox one, 5 new games, Your house, kids and the car to get an Xbox one X for 65% of it's normal cost.
Bargain

...when compared to this deal at least:

ebay.co.uk/itm…hIU
4K capability was what made me decide between Xbox and PS, each to their own I suppose.
Microsoft are robbing *****

True, 65% is a bit too much of an offer.
It's all that and maybe the wife for 13% off (87% price tag).
