      Xbox One S is great value if you are into gaming as well as being a 4K player. Grab a month of Game Pass for $1 and go nuts.

        If not into gaming the controller can be a pain so best to get a 4K player.

        •  

          yeah I am into gaming, but I have too many consoles (no XBOX) and just built a gaming PC.

          How does it go with 4K upscaling for 1080p?

          • +3 votes

            @whaleoilbeefhooked: The upscaling on the Xbox 1S is quite good from my experience

          • +2 votes

            @whaleoilbeefhooked: Media upscaled looks fantastic on the Xbox One S. My standard blurays look better than they ever did through it.

          •  

            @whaleoilbeefhooked: If you have a gaming PC I'd say just wait till the PS5 comes out next year and grab that for the playstation exclusives and 4K player. Majority of the xbox titles are already on pc.

            •  

              @vlahka: Any word if the PS5 will play PS4 games?

              •  

                @whaleoilbeefhooked: Nothing 100% but I'm pretty sure they said it would be backwards compatible. Most likely to do with everything being on their digital store now instead of using just discs which in the past they would have had to reprint older titles and that just wasnt worth their effort. Hopefully september we'll hear more at the tokyo show. I had been planning on grabbing a PS4 for ages but I guess I'll wait till the new one since its not so far away.

            • +3 votes

              @vlahka: Why bother waiting? The main point is that they’re after a 4K player now, not an unknown amount of years later when the PS5 comes out.

              •  

                @theguyrules: Well thats their decision. I figure if they havent got a 4K player yet and have been collecting 4K titles anyway, whats so bad about waiting a little longer? Mind you if they have a gaming PC one would imagine the monitor SHOULD be a good size. Cheaper to get a temp 4K bluray drive for the pc if they need it. Can always hook the pc up to the tv too. At this point I'd see an xbox as a pointless option.

        • +4 votes

          The media remote for the xbox works really well, for that use.

        • +1 vote

          The 4k playing ability was what helped to sell me on getting an Xbox One S quite a while ago, like many here. The only problem that we have now is that the Xbox can't play movies in Dolby Vision, which has become the most desirable format for 4k. Most people would probably rank this as a first world problem, however if you're going to blow $2-6k on an OLED TV and start spending a few hundred bucks on discs, you may consider investing in something a tad better with nice remote etc. I managed to pick up an LG UBK90 4k Blu Ray player for just shy of $240 on eBay (RRP $399). I just attached the Xbox to one of the other tvs around the house for utility, so no problem. I just had to upgrade out of curiosity but perhaps could have made do with the Xbox and plain old HDR. However, I also read some reviews saying that the LG unit was a bit better at upscaling too. My advice would be to do your homework before you buy a 4k player though. I was exposed to so much false advertising for other players than the UBK90 along my journey from salesmen, websites, store labels etc. that made false claims about cheaper or older players having Dolby Vision. There was one mainstream player that suggested it had Dolby Vision, but you actually had to download newer firmware to instal it. It was reasonably old and I couldn't see the firmware available on the corporate website, so I contacted the company to ask and they couldn't tell me whether the firmware was still available directly from the box. I dropped that idea there and then, given the lack of support. Sorry for rambling, but I hope the description of my journey helps others save some time and money, while avoiding some of the traps.

    They increased the prices of a ton of Blu-rays the day after the 20% off sale ended. Logan was $15.98 (without 20% off) and now it's $19.98. Deadpool was $15.98 and now it's $24.98. Deadpool 2 was $15.98 and now it's $34.98. Hopefully there'll still be some stock with the old stickers.

    • +8 votes

      I pity the staff members who had to re-sticker it all.

    • +1 vote

      Can't something be done about that? ACCC or something?

      It's why I like Amazon now - Ant man and the Wasp is still $20 on Blu & $24.99 on 4K.

      Sometimes, I really hate JB.

      "Deadpool was $15.98 and now it's $24.98"

      This title and the others mentioned have been FAR CHEAPER with the B2G1F deals + 20% combo - you could have picked THIS title for less than $9.

      There are going to the the 'whines' about the prices rising - however this B1G1 sale is only good IF YOU KNOW YOUR PRICES and you follow all of the deals over the months.

    I'll be buying from Amazon this year as they will halve the price on their movies instead. This saves you making multiple transactions as JB only gives you the cheapest item(s) free and their sticker prices vary too much.

    Also a good time to sign-up for the Amazon trial for free delivery if you haven't already

    And of course they’ve hiked prices back to RRP. Ant man and the Wasp 3D was $18 a few days ago, now $45; 4K version was $22, now $45. There are many titles where the better deal was found with the 20% off for Mother’s Day.

        I did the same. In December I brought the Xbox One S Minecraft edition for $199 for my son. Gave it to him 2 weeks ago for his birthday and now loving this 4K sale.

        I got the Avenger Trilogy and Dark Knight Trilogy on 4K for $59.

    •  

      I'm in the same boat. Been waiting for the PS4 to come out with a 4K player. Guess that won't be happening now.

      •  

        You think the PS5 won't do UHD?

          Mark Cerny has confirmed PS5 specs 8k video output, psvr compatible, PS4 backwards compatible and UHD disc drive

      •  

        Sadly that won't ever happen. Sony have separate market for their 4k player. They X700 is pretty popular and cheap but as same price as XB1s.

      If you are into gaming get the XBox One S for under $300. If not a gamer get a 4K player as the controller will annoy you for playing movies.

        They have the remote but you need to buy separately.

        I don't play games at all and still bought Xbox One for 4K movies. I generally use the xbox app on my mobile as it has a remote feature, which is very easy to use. Using the controller is bit painful but definitely manageable.

      Lol, I am exactly the same.

      I have no 4K/UHD Blu-ray player because I rip all of my UHD discs to my NAS and play them on my 4K TV with Plex :)

      •  

        How do you rip them, if you don’t have a 4K player?
        A 4K reader is still technically a player.

        • +4 votes

          As I understand it you don't need a 4K/UHD player/drive, just a drive that supports BDXL with the right software and keys.

          It won't play discs, but it can decrypt them.

        • +2 votes

          Sorry I should've clarified that. I have a regular LG WH16NS40 Blu-ray drive that I bought a while back for $80. While it can't play UHD movies from the discs (it lacks support for it), it can still read the discs and I can decrypt them for free with MakeMKV. Although, I really should buy a licence for MakeMKV since I've used it for so long. The guys that develop that software deserve it.

      Deals like this tend to go live online once the stores close, the night before the actual sale start date.

    Does this include box sets?

    Vote with your feet… Or mouse. I remember buying a lot of items in this sale 2 years ago, when they didn't jack up prices..

  • +2 votes

    A lot of titles usually can be found for less at other times (due to the increased price to RRP like others mentioned above).

    However, it is great for the ones that are usually sold at close to RRP, such as box sets, Studio Ghibli's works, and some Disney titles. Amazon has been very competitive in the past in matching or beating them, so checking before buying often helps.
