Xbox One X - Project Scorpio Edition (Argos eBay) - £405 with code

58
Found 2nd Feb
I'm sure everyone is aware of the 10% off Argos eBay (Minimum £40 spend) but they have just listed the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. These have been out of stock most places for months so to see it at a big retailer is great!

It's the standard £450, but with the 'PAYDAY10' code, it goes to £405. This offer ends tomorrow, Saturday 3rd Feb!

Click and collect is also free so worth picking up!

It looks uglier. And there’s a tiny Master Chief etched inside the Xbox One X. it been label "limited edition" and it cost more than the normal Xbox one x.

i was going to post this but i thought it would get a cold as the only difference is the logo branded on the console and controller and with the standard bundle you get games i didnt bother but heat for post =)

How does it look uglier? They're practically the same.
Does this also come with the vertical stand included?

Compared to the chump (yes yours truly) that got a shiny sparkling 100% pointless Day One achievement back in 2013?

Tried to buy but doesn’t let me proceed past checkout - any others have this issue??
Never understand why people ho for these, like the Day One edition of the Xbox One... there is no difference. They should have shipped it with 2TB and had the Scorpio Edition with a 4TB drive.... 4K assets fill up a 1TB drive in a handful of games.

Though personally I don't care as I have a PC for 4K and until consoles let you change FoV and mod... they hold no value for me other than exclusives, which Xbox doesn't have.

In terms of spec, no difference but it does come with a vertical stand, 4K HDMI cable and a few cosmetic differences.
It should hold its value better long term.

For most it won't make a difference but if you're picking one up anyway then you may as well get this one!

Is it a genuine 4K cable or what Phil Spencer might call a 'True 4K' cable?

Two points of that comment were way off, three from my point of view.

- The Master Chief Scorpio is on all Xbox One X consoles.
- It was the exact same price at launch.
- (my opinion) it's not 'uglier'

The master chief Scorpio, from what I read it was only for the Scorpio edition. But it matters not, as it is internal, so we can't see it unless we open it up.

Price, true it was the same, but the regular had better bundle deals. The same week it was released, the regular edition had deals which included games and accessories for the same price as the Scorpio.

So all in all, lesson is, never buy "limited" edition.

I stand corrected regarding the master chief.

Fair enough, but you can barely even see the "Project Scorpio" text on the console unless you're sitting very, very close to it.

They look almost identical apart from that text and a bit of engraving on top, again, you don't really notice this unless you're close.

Personal preference ofc, I do prefer the look myself, and I'd still rather own the Scorpio version. You'll probably get a bit more for it when you go to sell it later on.

I doubt it would be worth much in the future. There's to many in around for it to hold any value. Maybe in few years you'll get a few bucks more than the standard. But beyond that, I can't imagine it would be worth much. It would have been nice if Microsoft really made it limited, hard to get console. Owners of the scorpio would have felt a sense of achievement, feel they have something only a few have. But it feels ordinary, anyone can own it, took the buzz out of it.

I'd pay the extra not to deal with or give cex any of my business.
The quicker they disappear the better.
Waste of time, these so called 4k consoles cannot hit 60fps in 1080p never mind 4k.

Quick browse through the comments seems to have missed the Scorpio controller is unique also with black buttons and name branding - small cosmetic change but different.

Please spec me up a cost of a gaming rig that will hit locked 60fps at full 4K resolution and is of a size and noise level to fit under a living room tv? 1080p can be made hard for any pc if you run the appropriate game engine and settings. What I will meet you halfway with is the cpu in both Sony and Microsoft consoles is the limiting factor in many cases now.

So Microsoft lied? It’s not 4K??
Go away and troll elsewhere.

If there was no cex game would monopolize the gaming business. They bought gamestation and shut them down in a strategic way when they were told they cant just buy them to close down.

Is that being built in a similarly small case, including operating system and remembering to spec higher with the PC because of the overhead of running a full OS and less optimisation for specific hardware so that you actually achieve the same or better performance rather than just the same on paper?

I agree it wouldn't be well over a grand, but you would certainly be at least pushing closer to £1000 than £400, which is really what the point is.
