New xbox series x/s

Recommended Posts

Anyone having difficulty in procuring one?  Fucking next to impossible to get one over here in Ireland. Cunts online already selling them for 3 and 4 times the price. My 11 year old wants one for Xmas and I'm starting to worry that there won't be enough stock to meet demand worldwide never mind over here.

I got lucky with a pre order for the series x but had to get a bundle with an extra controller, which I'll sell anyway. 

 

Was gonna try to pick up a series S for my eldest but that isn't looking promising.

I got my lads direct from Microsoft. They were the last resort after going through all the usual stockists who’d all sold out

Thought I had one and got refunded. Twats as had I known they took the order with no stock John Lewis had stock. 

 

Going to wait till January. 

Got Stars Wars, AC Valhalla, God of War, Witcher 3, Horizon zero dawn all unplayed. 

 

I'll wait till January and get the xbox in a deal with Cyber Punk and Hitman. Gives Cyberpunk the chance to iron out the glitches with patches.

I got one, the last one in my city I think. 500 quid is a lot of money but my 11 year old is happy and it's future proofed until he can fucking buy his own the next time. It won't show its full potential until more games come online but the speed and graphics are unreal and I can still play my 12 year old tomb raider 360 game on it.

We've got one of each, both fine but the S you will likely be constantly managing the HD for space.

 

 

Yeah that was the only issue I could see with it, but I’m only planning on using it with the game pass and having two or three games on the go at any one time so should be alright.

My son has been moaning about space. I did get him and external HD but you really want an SSD which is pretty much the same cost as the X.

 

If storage and not being able play discs isn’t a problem then you are good.

Getting the xbox series s for £250 is an absolute steal and it should be considered a crime to be able to buy it at that price. For that reason alone (plus gamepass, backwards compatible games, small space required and flight simulator) it makes less sense to NOT buy one.

Yea agree, I'm thinking of buying a third Xbox for the house.  Me eldest has a series S, I have a One X, but for £250 I can get another series S just to stop me bother to move my One X from the front room to my youngests room.

Decided to get a Series X for the extra storage space and other benefits, but fuck me they’re hard to get hold of. 
 

Managed to get three PS5s before Christmas for my brother and a couple of my mates when everyone was struggling and they couldn’t get one but can’t get my hands on one of these. Ridiculous the shortages are still so bad months after they launched. 
 

Had one in my basket through the Microsoft store tonight, entered my card details and clicked pay then it said out of stock. Fuming.

Ended up getting a Series S in the end as I couldn't get a Series X, going to get a Series X for Christmas I think and move the S into the back room.

 

Definitely the best console I've ever had. The quick resume between games is superb and the game pass is ridiculously good value. There is a way to get it for £40 a year which is just mental for the amount of games you get. Over 300 games on it I think.

 

The space isn't too bad either, managed to install Halo Master Chief collection which is about four or five games, Forza 4, Jedi Fallen Order, Footy Manger 2021, Oro and the Will of the Wisps, Some Disney game for my kid, Medal of Honor Airborne, Donut County and the Flight Simulator that came out today and still got about 15gb left.

Is this worth getting? I can get one pretty cheap £130 new (unwanted present, reckon I can get him down another tenner). I'm just not sure if I need yet another games machine. Never had an Xbox though so am tempted.

Definitely, eurogamer took one apart and were gobsmacked at the build quality and technology used for the price point. It's a steal at £250 so less than £150 you'd be mad not to.

Yes definitely. You can get the game pass for a year for £40. All these games listed here for that price is absolutely ridiculous.

If you’ve never had an Xbox it’s well worth getting just to play Halo and Forza, which are included in the game pass.

No, you'll get signed out of one when signed in on another.

Ok, though I presume I can simply log-out of my Warzone/GTA account on my current xbox, then buy a new xbox with a different account and sign-in to Warzone/GTA and pick up where I left off?

How do you get that pass for £40?

With the same account on a different console? Yes, definitely. It syncs across the same account to any system with the same account. But not a different account. Any game saves are attached to the account and are only available to that account.

But Xbox gold live (think CDKeys was cheapest when I got it) and you can upgrade to game pass ultimate for £1. 
 

You can buy one year for about £40, two years for £80 or three years for £120 and then it upgrades the time you have remaining for £1.
