    Wow, that's a hell of a deal! I'm tempted to pick up a third just for the UHD blu ray capacity.

      MS are really smashing Sony the last few months :)

      Shame about the rest of the generation but :(

      •  

        Not sure if I would call going into damage control this late in the consoles life cycle, then making a just-as-ugly box that looks like a cheap ISP provided router "smashing Sony".

        I feel bad for everyone that bought the console prior to the S, it was a gimped gpu from the start and now they get to miss out on the performance they should have had, while they get railroaded into making new hardware purchases due to planned obsolescence.

        Not that Sony are much better but at least they have committed that games will be made with the original ps4 hardware in mind so that no one misses out. Nintendo are just slowly digging their own grave with mediocre libraries and an os that windows 98 puts to shame speed wise, that OS made me hate turning it on before I gave up and sold it.

          Just FYI, the games for project Scorpio will work on the xbox one.

          @imurgod:

          My issue is more the hardware in the Xbox One S is more substantial than the original xbox one and runs some games better and will undoubtedly multiply as more games are developed. So the suckers that bought the console before the S will get less performance vs people that paid less for the new model.

          So many multiplat game on xbox one's first version ran at less than 1920x1080 and often at 900p

          @gore: no, the hardware is the same and the games run the same. The only difference is it runs some of them with HDR which, admittedly, is far better more impressive than higher resolution if your TV has HDR.

          So 900P in HDR, for example, looks better than 1080P without. Also, you can't see any difference between 900 and 1080 under normal circumstances (i.e. On a TV in your living/bedroom).

          Them there's waiting for the S. The suckers who bought before it have enjoyed the system from the beginning.

          Technology is like that. The "suckers" who've bought the S or the PS Pro or even the commodore 64 haven't waited for the far superior Scorpio.

          For that matter, people who bought a TV in 1975 didn't wait for 4K TV's… It's ridiculous.

          I'm getting that from here:

          http://www.polygon.com/2016/6/13/11927732/xbox-one-s-perform...

          "According to Fergusson, the Xbox One S has additional raw GPU and CPU power compared to the Xbox One, and The Coalition's engineers have been able to take advantage of that to reduce the frequency of frame rate or resolution penalties in more demanding sections of the game."

        •  

          @gore: cool. The hardware is the same though. Just tweaked. Either way, it's a good time to be alive if you're a gamer!

          Did you know that the Xbox One had more powerful hardware than the Xbox 360?

          And the Xbox 360 had improvements over the old Xbox Arcade, etc?

          And the Xbox Arcade had improvements over the original Xbox?

          Go figure.

        •  

          @imurgod: you're not getting it - the hardware in the S is clocked FASTER, so even if it is the identical silicon (which essentially it isn't. it was shrunk, thus outputs less heat which allows it to be sped up to run faster) - it runs faster in the S than it does in the original XBOX ONE. That is why games DO run faster on the S, than on the original.

        I don't think they're smashing anything except the prices. The Xbox still has dismal exclusives compared to some big ones like Uncharted, The Last of Us, inFamous, R&C, that new Spider Man game Insomniac is working on, Gran Turismo, Bloodborne.

        Xbox has Forza, Halo, Killer Instinct, Crackdown, Sunset Overdrive, Gears of War.

        I have both and only got the PS4 recently, had the Xbox One since a few weeks after release. The PS4 just seems better, better menus, better games. The only downside is the controller, the Xbox One controller is nice and battery life is great. Also, the online features between each, I don't know about, since I don't play consoles online.

          Multiplayer on Xbox absolutely decimates PSN, which has already had 3 leaks and hacks in the last 2 years, Add to the insult expensive PSN multiplayer fees per year vs Microsoft Xbox Live, I have a PS4 but as a base standalone unit collecting dust, the Xbox One was not gimped in any way, the GPU in the xbox One S was overclocked (please educate yourself before talking nonsense) so it could perform HDR rendering and 4K upscaling, also remembering there were hardware changes (HDMI 2.0) and 60 Hz Support, so clearly the hardware on the older Xbox One wasn't gimped just not capable of more via firmware, hence the minor hardware upgrade

          Until PSN reduces their horrid pricing, Xbox Live is whats keeping me loyal to the Xbox Ecosystem not to mention cross gaming capabilities with my PC when I buy a digital download through the Xbox Store ( 2 platforms for the price of 1)

          Further to this adding a decent range of Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles is also a big win, sony burnt that bridge when they stuffed the PS3 compatibility by removing it completely

          I find the Sony controller a little nicer and then Menu / Ecosystem slightly less jittery than the Microsoft "Computer" based menus from Windows 10 (Tiles / Metro) but all in all, my experience with both consoles has always left me to paying for Gold on Xbox rather than PSN on the Sony, I just can't justify buying a $100 game and then expecting to pay a fortune to access multiplayer

          Live is around 40 per year and sometimes under 80 for 2 years, PSN from memory is at least 70 per year on special and at least 100 retail off the shelf

          Each to their own but I tend to find a better experience on Xbox for many titles and its my console of choice

          Of course everyone forgets the way Sony handled backwards compatiblity and still acts as if nothing happened, unfortunately when people have no idea about hardware / how things work they tend to talk trash

          @shawncro 222: fanboys.. I'm the total opposite.. my xbox one literally has sat collecting dust since July 2016 due to the majority of games running either slower or at a lower resolution than the PS4 and the lack of interesting console exclusives. The only exclusive (and even then because it was cross platform) game I was interested in was Recore - which turned out to be uninteresting when it was released.

          XBOX One backwards compatibility has held my interest in that I can finally go back and play some of the games I bought on xbox 360 and never played.

          I have no idea what you're smoking in regards to 'PSN horrid pricing' as PSN and XBOX Gold membership for a year is roughly the same cost (PSN is AUD $10 cheaper) - even if you do the cheap overseas membership hunt.

          Ahh you need to CHECK YOUR FACTS - you state LIVE is $40 a year and PSN is $100 a year - total bullshit. LIVE is $79.95 RRP a year and PSN is $69.96 a year. Of course both can be found for about $50 on sale.

          You give an example of not wanting to pay a fortune to multiplayer game on PS4, but in the same sentence you say you pay for Gold membership.. for multiplayer gaming. Uh what?

          If the majority of your mates have xbox and that is where your multiplayer gaming is, then that is understandable and go enjoy.

          Personally I hate the tiled menu of XBOX One / Windows 8 with a passion. For me the PS4 menu system is intuitive and easy to use, hell even my 5 year old nephew picked it up incredibly easily the first time he used it.

          What? You are just making things up now. Your comment isn't helpful to those considering a purchase.

          I don't understand why fan boys do this.

          Xbox is going from strength to strength.

          Anyone considering this purchase:
          1. Better, cheaper, more reliable, far more secure online experience (Sony has leaked personal details numerous times now)
          2. Better free games every month
          3. Backwards compatible
          4. Far more comfortable controller
          5. You can stream to your pc (i.e. You can play your xbox on your pc)
          6. Cross play (games you buy on xbox, you also get the pc version for free)

          To be honest there isn't much that separates the Ps4 and the xbox one as most titles a cross platform but backward compatibility is a big plus given the price of the outstanding 360 game library and then there's the consistently better free games each month.

    These will probably go quick, might get one before work on Wed :)

    Any reason ps4 pro is so expensive compared to the XboxOS?

      PS4 pro is more powerful than other consoles. More aimed at 4k gaming experience and better resolution at 1080p.

          @KLoNe:

          I'm hoping it will force Scorpio to at least launch on time if not early. I'll then wait a year for prices to come down.

          @syousef:

          Well in all honesty, that's the ONLY reason I can think of for M$ to drop the prices of the XBoneS so much. These things are getting crazy cheap. Gotta get rid of stock before Holiday 17 new console launch.

        •  

          I think he means that at 1080p the pro is going to actually be downsampling 1440p+ to 1080, so at 1080p it will actually look better than native 1080p.

    • +2 votes

      Neither can play games at pure 4k. With upscaling they run at 4k. Like 1080p.

    •  

      They don't have to try as hard to win back market share because they made less mistakes.

    Good deal

      Look at each console exclusive and see which one is better for you, in my situation i play forza every day so ps4 is big no no. Also, xbox live is cheaper than psn(Assuming you will be buying it online).

    Microsoft really has been ticking all the right boxes lately. Backwards compatibility means I can play my Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. And Play Anywhere is a really welcoming feature that lets me play Microsoft first-party games (which usually are the good ones anyway) on my PC and Xbox One with only one single purchase. And to cap it off, they have some damn fine looking limited edition controllers too, I love the Shadow series.

    This is a fantastic price if you're on the fence about getting one.

    •  

      The price is great, but let's not kid ourselves… it's cheap because they have a new machine coming out this year, and the PS4 is beating the XB1 at a 2:1 ratio. That said, this is truly a great price even if you are primarily buying for UHD playback.

      • +2 votes

        Microsoft stuffed up when they where saying games you buy where going to be linked to one console.

        Have the console online when ever you wanted to play it so no game sharing bad mistake on Microsofts part to do it then they changed there mind which was to late.

        I'm sure Sony where thinking in the same direction but let Microsoft do the first move and realised bad move that's why they got rid of it on a day one update secretly.

        I there way I'm glad I grabbed the Xbox because they came a
        Long with there games with gold and backwards compatibility
        Can see a bright future when the scorpion comes out :)

    Be warned - as a bluray player it's not the best. Pretty awesome for UHD bluray though.

      Not great for blu-ray? Why is that?

          Sooo…. you don't actually have the Xbox One S, the console in this deal?
          My Xbox 360 'has issues' with playing BluRays too ;).

    I'm new to gaming.

    I bought PS4 slim 500g + Controller Just week at big w for 359. Is this abetter deal? I have a 4k tv but i dont watch 4k movies. Does xbox one s do 4k gaming?

    Basically reasons not to return ps4 and get this?

          Keep the "system wars" stuff out of it….

          In fact, the RRP on PSN for a year is $10 cheaper than Xbox Live so this is plainly uninformed. You could argue that there are better deals for Xbox Live memberships, or better monthly games, but the facts speak for themselves:

          Xbox LIVE 12 months = $79 https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msaus/en_AU/list/Xbox-L...
          PS+ 12 months = $69 https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-au/playstation-plus-membership/cid=STORE-MSF76008-PS_PLUS_MEMBERSH

          @Poimandres:

          Leaking personal data is nothing about console wars
          thats just plain pathetic, your personal data is out there in text form, you keep playing that Sony trumpet
          further more Xbox 360 games are now on the Xbox One, once again another FEATURE Sony removed from the PS3

          Microsoft has had live hacked maybe once or twice in the 10 + years ive been on the platform

          Sorry to inform you but I paid 70 for 2 years of Xbox Live recently, so your links aren't of interest

          Moot point, Nothing about being a fanboy, PSN sucks plain and simple and for the small amount of exclusives to PS4 I just can't be bothered going to Pay to Play on it
