Should I get the new Xbox One Slim or Wait for the Xbox One Scorpio?

It's true, M$ are releasing a new Xbox One. The Xbox One S (Slim). And apart from it being 40% slimmer it's also packed with more features and is 4K compatible. Well it can play 4K Blu-ray movies and do 4K upscaling for HD games anyway which is sort of the same. Plus did I mention that it's 40% slimmer. However there will be another Xbox One one released after it too the Xbox One Scorpio with a more powerful and faster GPU and will be capable of supporting 4K resolution gaming as well as VR augmented reality for people with a VR headset. But I don't know about that.

Apparently though, this has upset a lot of gamers who say they were expecting the games to get better not the hardware for a few years or so yet and that releasing one console after another so shortly is putting a lot of people off and likely to buy the Sony PS4 code-named Neo which will be 4K compatible and have an upgrade GPU.

What about you? Do you like the look of the new Xbox One Slim? Or would you prefer to wait until the Xbox One Scorpio is out and get that instead? Or are you a Sony fan and going to wait out until the new Sony PS4 Neo console is released?

I personally would get the PS4 or Neo because I've always played a playstation/sony Should I get the new Xbox One Slim or Wait for the Xbox One Scorpio?

I've played xbox but I've never been a huge fan of their controller. I know that the new controller is going to be a bit smaller, but they took too long to please me and sony won me over years ago Should I get the new Xbox One Slim or Wait for the Xbox One Scorpio? I still have to get use to the ps4 controller because it's a little different than the playstation, playstation 2 and playstation 3 controllers that I'm so use to.

As for the smaller xbox, I think it's actually a pretty good idea. I have a ton of stuff on my small entertainment system and I wish I could get more on there, but 99% of the space is taken up it feels like. Making electronics smaller and keeping them at the same, or better, performance capabilities as the previous version is a great way to win people over. The only downside to this, like you said, is that they are launching a new system and not pushing out better games. I do get it that microsoft isn't the only company releasing games for the consoles, but it would be nicer to play games that don't feel finished and would offer more than 1 day of gameplay before beating everything Should I get the new Xbox One Slim or Wait for the Xbox One Scorpio? Both PS3/PS4 and Xbox/Xbox1 have these types of games out there and then they release DLCs roughly every 5 to 8 months after launch in order to bring people in and pay a $20 price tag to keep playing. Pay to play maybe?


In the end, I've always been a fan of the sony playstation consoles so I'll stick with them Should I get the new Xbox One Slim or Wait for the Xbox One Scorpio?

I agree with Razzy; I will also wait for the PS4 neo as the controller is better and I am more of a Sony fan than Microsoft, at least for gaming. If you prefer the xbox, then I will wait for the Xbox One Scorpio because it is better and the wait probably won’t be that long considering they already announced that it will be released.

Damn you Sony fanboys haha you are making me think now. I do prefer the PS4 tbh, I find it a much better dashboard and user experience, the M$ Xbox dashboard is clunky and cluttered and you need to be a scientist with a degree in computer technology just to use. But I do tolerate it because most of my mates are on Xbox. Where as the PS4 is a dedicated gaming console, much easier and quicker to use. The other thing that is making me want the new Xbox one s is not just that it's slim but that game updates like new maps for COD and BF1 will be released on the xbox first and you Sony fanboys will have to wait a month longer to get them. Mind you, waiting is not always a bad thing, I might still wait it out until the new PS4 neo is out and according to IGN it's out in September. The wait could pay off as it looks like it could be a bit more powerful than the Xbox One Scorpio anyway. Decisions decisions. Should I get the new Xbox One Slim or Wait for the Xbox One Scorpio?

honestly from my point of view it looks like it all comes down too the size or should i say amount of space that your wiling to give your new system although the Scorpio might be heading a little more into the gen of the consoles the features and all around purpose and functions of the system stand the similar , my suggestion to you would be to to the slim that you have more freed up space for w.e you have in mind for your gaming and it would also make it easier to take along with you

Cheers Jkeyz! Yeh I want the slim just because it's so damned cute! lol I've heard though that the new Xbox One Scorpio is going to be more powerful than the new PS4 Neo as well by leaps and bounds actually which will probably work out in Microsofts favor! But they'll both be able to do the same thing and that is support 4K gaming and 4K VR headsets for a new generation of VR gaming and gamers. Cod MW in 4K VR mode that's going to be insane!
