Found 18th Jun
Please can you help - I really want to buy an xbox one x, I havent got a clue whats a good offer?

We have a 4K UHD tv that I got from Currys a Samsung one (I think thats the right terminology) and from what I have read the xbox one I have now won't work properly on the new tv?

Thank you so much, I wouldnt know where to start! I'm having a baby in October so need to save money if possible!

Don't bother getting one, once baby comes you shall have no life! From a new parent.
Enjoy the journey of parenthood.
Who told you that your current XBox One won't work properly?
Original XBox One - will work in 1080p HD through HDMI, just like it does today
XBox One S - will upscale games to 4K and play 4K Bluray
XBox One X - native 4K on games (which are XBox One X enhanced) & Bluray

Only you know your priorities but any XBox One will work 'properly' with a 4K TV - sure native 4K is nice to have, but at £350+?
X box one will work OK (from my understanding), it's just that to get the full benefit of the high spec TV you need a high spec output device. To be honest 4K is still in its infancy as far as development is concerned, with a limited amount of 4K product out there. I personally haven't gone the 4K route yet, I'm waiting to see if it goes the same way as curved screens and 3D Tvs - fashionable to have but really pointless.

Did you get a voucher for £100 off an Xbox one x when you bought your 4k tv from Currys?
I did.
That's a good deal.
Just trade all your junk at cex and get an X from there, I also have a Samsung 4k tv and it looks stunning as does the ps4 pro but just not as stunning
Thanks everyone! Native 4K is what I was told , that makes sense. Do only certain games have that then? I'll find a list .. I've found a few deals but nothing seems as good as last weeks ebay offer .. was away all week and didnt think to keep checking :-(

Yeah that makes sense, I just wanted to get the full 'benefit' of my tv, I was a bit haste and bought it without really looking into the xbox scenario! It looked amazing in the store

A list of Enhanced games here.
What's the model number of your TV?
Instead of going by what you've read on the internet, why don't you just connect everything up and give it a whirl.

I have two kids doesn’t mean you give up things you enjoy doing. I have an Xbox and a PS4.
Your original Xbox one will work it just won’t be as good of picture as the one x. I have the one x in my game room and it does look awesome but I use the normal Xbox one in the bedroom on a 4K set and it works absolutely fine. With a 40” tv your going to have to be sat close to appreciate the 4K anyway no more than 5 foot away

I have 3 kids and your 100% correct. More than enough time in the day to share between the kids and gaming.

Go for it you won’t be disappointed, you can game share as well so you only buy 1 digital game and play on both on 2 separate ac

on a 40inch tv you are hardly going to notice a difference unless your face is stuck to the screen
