    I already have a high-end PC so won't be using it much for gaming outside of exclusives, but I'm really thinking about getting a Xbox One S as a home entertainment device. Good idea?

    Xbox One is a fantastic home entertainment device. I love it. I have an AppleTV I got for free from SlingTV, and it can't even compare - not even close. I have my Xbox One Day One console in my living room for media consumption, and my Xbox One S in my office/game room.

    I love the Kinect voice commands for my living room. If you can get a Kinect cheap, it is well worth it.

    Also, "Xbox Anywhere" games can be played on Xbox or Windows 10. Buy it once, play it anywhere.

    Whoa there. That's pretty sweet.

    Details? Will this be support for ALL original Xbox games, or only a partial list, 360-style?

    Also, not totally clear to me whether this feature is XB1X-exclusive, or whether it's coming to all XB1's. I'm assuming the latter, but at least one article implies the former.

    No details about it yet, but backward compatibility for the original Xbox is much, much easier than the Xbox 360 as the original Xbox was x86 - like the Xbox One. Basically, the emulation will be much easier to write.

    Crimson Skies was a confirmed title.

    And this is for ALL Xbox Ones. Every Xbox One, will always be able to play the same games. The ones on the Xbox One X may just run better and be better looking. Also, with Xbox Pass, they are going to want to have as many backward compatibility games on there as they can.

    Where'd you get this number? During the press conference they kept saying that 22 of the games they were showing were exclusive. But the vast majority of those were "Launch Exclusive" meaning that they will almost certainly be coming to other platforms after a certain period of time.

    Thanks for summary. I haven't watched the video yest but to clarify your summary, are you saying that Scorpio will be Xbox One X?

    4K always. That is Cinema/Theatre Quality.

    I'm a pc gamer but have an Xbox S, it's great for media, + 4k streaming and 4k blu. And even gaming w/ friends who don't have gaming pc's. I still primarily use my pc, but as far as a media system w/ gaming (and the $50 price cut this week) it can't be beat. I was an early adopter of ps4 but since getting the S, the ps4 has been collecting dust. I do like bloodborne but didn't really feel like I was missing anything else since the Xbox does a better job with media (which the ps4 became).

    Tl;Dr I recommend it for pc gamers, especially if you need a 4k media device w/ blu

    At one point, I had 3 Xbox Ones in my 950 square foot condo for media consumption (living room, bedroom and office) because they are so good at media consumption. I ended up giving one to my nephew, but I'll be back up to three once the One X arrives. I am a huge fan of Kinect voice commands - but otherwise the Kinect is pretty useless. I only have a Kinect on my Day One Xbox One in my living room.

    I got a xbox one, the original. I mainly use it for media, netflix, slingtv, blu ray.
    I like the free games you can download on xbox live monthly.

    Exactly man, the Xbox One is great! Sony really did a poor job on media consumption, at least in my experience between the machines. I also like the titles you just have to buy once and can play on pc or console.

    Yeah, I need to reactivate my Gold account, but that's been great too.

    I will really be happy when xbox one becomes compatible with FilmStruck/Criterion Channel. They say they are working on it, and it is next on their to-do list, but I really don't want to wait any longer.

    The $500 pill is a lot easier to swallow than the expected 600-700 dollar one that I was expecting at launch. That probably sealed the deal for me on day one.

    They are definitely selling the Xbox One X below cost. The price breakdown of components alone ranges from about $425 to $450, and that doesn't take into consideration manufacturing, shipping, retailer profit sharing and research costs.

    Nobody seems to know what happened to the xbox180. But likely buried in a Nevada desert.
