£369? Crazy price. 90 of these. (credit simplemick)

OK, this is a weird one. Heads up, deal? I'm not sure.

You can pay for the Xbox One X (and I assume other items at the Microsoft Store) using your Microsoft balance...

Yes, I only have £1.04 in my account...not far to go now

You can grab a £50 top up from CDKeys [here]. 9 x £46.99 = £422.91. You could use the 5% discount on 2 separate accounts (max purchase 5 per order) to drop the price down to £401.76.

Bargain, right?

I'm not aware of any terms or conditions that would prevent this from working. If you know of any please do let me know. I would suggest contacting Microsoft via their chat service to establish whether loading £450 worth of Xbox credit is going to allow you to purchase the XBOX.

If you were going to this you could buy 90 £5 cards from uk.scdkey.com who are knocking them out for £4.10 thus costing £369, just saying.

"Xbox One X has an octa-core processor, with eight custom x86 cores …"Xbox One X has an octa-core processor, with eight custom x86 cores running at 2.3GHz.The PS4 Pro also has an octa-core CPU, the x86-64 "Jaguar", but runs slower at 2.1GHz"...... So much for it being "vastly more powerful" - 0.2 ghz faster! Lol!. Plus it doesn't have anywhere near as many games and exclusives. PS4 Pro it is then!.


Look no one is forcing you to get one so why are you commenting about a different product? Do you do this for instance on a posting about a pot of jam and claim the superiority of marmalade? You get what you like and allow others to do the same. I have a PS4 an Xbox One S and a very powerful gaming PC as I like games not pointless arguments.

So we’re ignoring the GPU stats and Ram to come to this conclusion? Ok.

Would they charge straightaway if it's Microsoft balance?

"What happens when I pre-order an Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition?

Pre-ordering now ensures you will receive the limited-quantity exclusive Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition on the product launch date of November 7, 2017. After placing your pre-order, you'll receive an email confirmation and won't be charged until your unit ships."

I assume it would work in the same way as pre-ordering a game. The amount will be deducted instantly.
Would be nicer if the X on the box would be on the side of the console, but still looks nice and worthy.

Sony could have done the same with the pro with a PS4 Neo edition.

It's not from stores or Amazon. We're discussing Microsoft's pre-order methods.

Gees can't please everyone lol it looks sick imo pre ordered mine for shore I'm a sucka for limited editions my Xbox one day one edition is going for a clean and back in the box for safe keeping =]
Good deal, but for some reason the CDKeys code is only giving me 1% off, rather than 5%.
good savings if you plan on keeping the xbox one x FOR SURE
If you're on the fence on it, going to try it out and see if it's WORTH 499 then go for a credit card pre-order IMHO
I've put a few pre orders up in different places so that hopefully at least 1 gets delivered
Does anyone know if there will be a 2TB version of this and have Microsoft said what versions will be available?

Like I said it looks nice and totally worth it if you want the X, but imo that X on the box looks really cool. Don't take it the wrong way.
If you open a credit account on very you can get this for £363-98.
This is a lot of money for a console, damn

Ouch
It's a shame it doesn't let you do split payment I have £250 credit would of been nice to use this and put the rest on my card
Anybody risked this yet then?
I have just rang them on the 0800 number. They said you can use it BUT you need to supply a credit card as they won't take payment until dispatched. A few days before dispatch you need to contact them to split payment and swap it to your live account credit. Hmmm thinking
Not going to work.

When you say 'split payment' do you mean they won't allow the purchase of the full price using account credit?

Ah, nevermind then

Seems strange that the chat operatives are insisting credit/debit cards are the only option but the option to pay with credit at checkout is present.

I appreciate you taking the time to find out mate, cheers

I'm guessing if you actually had enough to order it, it would then fail or advise it wasn't allowed for pre-orders perhaps.

What is funny is the chat representative basically said I could try putting it on my card, but then cancelling my card so that when they come to charge it, they will fail to take payment and ask me for a new payment method .... lol
i tried to buy an xbox a few months ago this way and they said it was not possible,or at least then anyway

I just spoke to the support and the guy said that I could part pay for it now using my account balance and then pay for the rest of it with my card in late October, when they take the money out.

So, maybe you could pay for £445.00 of it using Gift Cards and then they can take £4.99 from your Debit/Credit Card just before release?

Don't know if I want to risk buying that much credit though haha
Just ordered 10 codes as a next test and they need 3 days to deliver
