    Question Anyone getting Xbox series X or s?

    Just wondering if anyone thinking about getting new Xbox?
    I'm tempted by the all access program at ?29 a month with game pass.
    Shame no halo for a while though.

    For no reason other than they exist and its just something I have always done, I will be getting both the higher spec X box and the PS5.
    I don't really know why I am bothering with the PS5 though, my PS4(s) have barely been touched for months. I would say the same about the Xbox One, but at least my daughter plays on that.

    These might be the last generation of consoles I buy though.

    I'm with you on this one. I have an xbox one x and recently built a PC for about ?700 for a family member. The difference in graphics, frame rate, field of view whilst playing Warzone is shocking compared to the xbox. For the extra money I think I'll build a pc next generation. All my friends have gone PC too.

    I recently grabbed Hotshot Racing on XBOX Gamepass, which is a lovely game, but I was quite disturbed to see when I was playing a game where damage was applied, and when you are nearly destroyed and your car is on fire, the frame rate visibly dropping. This is using 1990's Sega Virtua Racing style graphics. An XBOX One should not be struggling with it !

    I've been tempted but everything on Xbox is and will most likely be coming to the PC. I just splurged on a new RTX 3080. So my next console will be the PS5 as much as I hate the damn shape of it! Only getting it for the exclusives really. I'll end up getting a Series X also at one point. Gotta have em all haha.

    I do still play on the Xbox One X but not as much these days, a shame really good bit of kit.

    As for the Series X, you cant complain about the price and the amount of power you are getting. The thing that will hurt it the most is the Launch line up I think. Bu

    Keep hearing this PC master race and FPS chanting all the time and yes it's true games look and play way better on PC but never seems to be mentioned every single game or virtually every single game on PC is riddle with game hackers and for anyone into PVP it's soul destroying with either someone obviously cheating or gives you doubts enough to ruin your game. I stopped playing games on PC with Unreal Tournament being riddled with game hackers about 18 years ago and nothing has change apart from it's 100 times worse now, they even have game hackers destroying Fall Guy's on PC.

    The answer I always give to people who ask what's better PC, Xbox, Playstation is whatever is best for you as there is no definitive answer, if all your friends or people you want to play with play On PC then PC is probably best for you, the same goes for Xbox and Playstation.

    After missing out on a PS5, then the shambles of the RTX3080 pre-orders, I was determined not to miss out on the XBOX Series X pre orders when they went live. So of course I forgot all about it, and it was only at lunch time I saw there were hundereds of posts on a hotukdeals thread.
    That said, I followed the advice of someone who bagged one at ao.com where there was no add to basked icon to click as they were marked sold out, but on one particular bundle if you clicked "compare" it took it to a new screen where there was an icon and it worked. Only problem was it was coming with some game that didnt interest me in the slightest (like most of them).
    Later on, my mate said he was struggling, so I looked on hukd again, and someone had just posted "microsoft site, now!!", so I jumped on there and bagged another console only order, just in case they were gone before my mate managed to get on there.
    I will be either giving the spare order to my mate when he confirms he wants it, or cancelling it later today.

    Thanks to tronads

    You would be number 3 in the queue as Bertroot has contacted me as well.
    To be honest it could only work if you were local to Blackpool as its too much messing to get it delivered then shipped on.

    I too have ordered a Quest 2, but I am now thinking of cancelling it after watching a review on Youtube last night. The guy was saying it isn' going to be able to be driven/enhanced by a PC, which was quite important for me as I wanted to play games off Steam etc.
    This contradicted a written review I had read earlier though, so I just don't know what to do about it now.

    You can link Quest 2 to a PC just the same as you can with the Quest 1
