Its only a no brainer if you want or like the red console + play gears of war. The console is a hidious colour. Myself & my partner dont play gears of war.

But you've got £80 worth of game which you can put on eBay to reduce the price with. I'm sure you would clear £50-60 after fees meaning you've got the console and controller for £280-£290!
Also, you're getting limited edition stuff rather than bog standard which would have a better resale value if you decided to sell it on.
So the S stands for slim and not Scorpio?

​Limited edition stuff is a fad these days there's that many produced they are not limited at all.

Exactly. The only Limited Edition stuff nowadays is from Nintendo and even then, they don't really use "Limited Edition" for what they put out, some yes, not all. Games might be print in limited quantities by Nintendo so the best time to get X title would be by pre-order or when it's still in stock for the RRP price.

I bought Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE for £29.99 (with the £10 Amazon credit) although I think I could have gotten it for £5 less if I had used Prime Now but whatever, £29.99 is a good price. The only reason I even bothered ordering TMSxFE is because I can play the game uncensored by patching it (it's a detailed tutorial elsewhere).

Doesn't justify paying a £1.27 premium for £80 less content though!
I'm sure someone would swap a white console for your gears console quite happily!
post the French link please

Yes? Scorpio is a brand-new console.
The problem with a white console is it will probably go a dingy yellow colour over time.
Amazon France deal just went up by 50EUR for anyone that read this thread and was tempted, may be worth keeping an eye on it to see whether it drops back down again.
Good price.

Also includes

High Dynamic Range
Experience richer, more luminous colours in games like Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3. With a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks, High Dynamic Range technology brings out the true visual depth of your games.

4k Ultra HD
With four times the resolution of standard HD 4k Ultra HD delivers the clearest, most realistic video possible. Stream 4k content on Netflix and Amazon Instant Video and watch Ultra HD Blu-rayTM movies in stunning visual fidelity with High Dynamic Range.2

IR Blaster
Configure your Xbox One S to turn on other devices, like your TV, audio/video receiver, and cable/satellite receiver. Whether you’re playing a game or watching a movie, the integrated IR blaster will get you to the action faster, allowing you to leave your remotes behind.

Wireless And Bluetooth Controller

New controller includes both wireless and Bluetooth, can use on both Xbox One and PC without any adaptor.

Microsoft will cover your warranty wherever you are regardless, you just speak to Microsoft GB and they will sort you out. It's based on just the serial number I believe and you can see how long your warranty is online.

thank you, but what about amazon itself for anything they sell? I hear about people buying from all over Europe, are they taking risks?? or amazon uk would usually take care to an extent of course

This only happened with old consoles due to the type of plastic used, I believe.

I'd ask Amazon UK in live chat and have the conversation emailed to yourself.
That way you'd have 100% confidence in your recourse if there were to be any issues later down the line.

Sticking to me £350 Amazon pre order... needs to be more than £10 cheaper to trust it to Zavvi. Re Gears of War console... it's fugly
nabbers25

Don't you get charged customs with stuff like that too? Always worries me. Is it safe to buy from abroad because I see deals on here and i'm always put off because not really sure about buying abroad really
I never ever expected it to cost that much. Perhaps some worthwhile games rather than this nonsense. Should be able to upgrade storage ourselves, like the PS4.
God luck with zavi customer service if something goes wrong.

Read this as:
Customer service don't exists.
I contacted Amazon and they said they would not price match it. I'm still sticking with Amazon as I trust them and as a student got a discount making it cheaper than this price anyway (but not as good as if Amazon price matched and then kept my discount).

Will this get posted to Northern Ireland?
the S stands for Spensive, as tbats what it is. you can get the original for below £200 now with a game. i k ow ita a deal but Microsoft are doing themselves an injury.
Zavvi are currently the only UK retailer offering the S below £350, but I'm still expecting something slightly better before release...

I assume you're upgrading from a standard Xbox One? would that be for the 4k Bluray player?

I'm still not quite sure what the target audience is for this console, if you have a 4k TV home cinema setup it will surely annoy you that the audio side is left behind where DVD left off with lossy compressed audio like Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS?

Also, the 4k bluray discs will have Dolby Atmos and DTS-X to compliment the 4k Picture, but the Xbox One S won't be able to offer either, or any HD audio format for that matter.

And before anyone asks this isn't just a software upgrade

imo this is a huge oversight!
Basically a style upgrade. I held off buying the original for a year as it's huge and ugly, I'm taking the opportunity to make it Xbox (look) great again.

Why would you let the xbox process your sound? You'd pass it through to your Dolby Atmos or DTS-X enabled AV-Receiver to play the sound.

Indeed, you would... however the XBONE cannot pass HD audio to your AV receiver, the hardware isn't there to allow it, which was my point.
