Thread Details

I've googled but didn't find what I needed. I've been seeing so many Xbox bundles for pretty good prices, I'm really debating on grabbing a xb1 for exclusives to play them. The question I have is, does Xbox make revisions to their consoles, like slim / less power models?

I know ps always makes slim versions, wouldn't surprise me if ps releases there's next year. But does Xbox do same thing? If so I may wait if they are large changes.

Thanks! Any opinions on whether it's worth owning a xb1 and ps4? I keep ps plus but I wouldn't have Xbox online service, would be strictly offline play, fable etc.

I saw that and it didn't make sense. The ps wiki shows all the power consumption charts and everything. I see nothing about the power watts and such. I'd like a more efficient system if the Xbox uses a ton. I've never owned a Xbox I played halo and fable once
I know id never play online due to i don't want to pay for both systems premium services.

Is a revision pretty imminent?

They will more than likely make a "slim" version at some point, but who knows when. Black Friday is next month though and if it's like last year there will be a bunch of Xbox One deals.

Do you think xb1 games are fun without online mumtiplayer? I only use online for destiny and cod and borderlands. But honestly just wanting to play exclusives that I don't get on ps4.

The Xbox can play older games now too right? Say I get older Xbox fables, can it read them? Or do they sell them cheaply in the Xbox store online?
(I don't need online access to use the online store to buy things I'd imagine?)

I have tons of friends with old Xbox games that I could have or borrow so if it can read them, I'd love to play them. I've never played the fables, I played the first one for like an hour and enjoyed it. So I want to play them all lol.

Are you talking Original XBOX games or 360 games?

The XB1 will not support the backward compatibility feature until Novembers Dash update.

Even the it will only play certain 360 games. All first party microsoft published games on 360 are rumored to work (your halos, gears, fables, etc.) but for anything else (assassins creed, call of duty, battlefield, etc) its up to the publisher to support it.

XB1 will never play OG XBOX games.

Yeah... enjoying part of the first Fable in no way means you'll enjoy 2 or 3.

I wonder if I should buy a 360... enjoy all the old cheap games then upgrade to a 1.
I've been anti Xbox as long as I've been alive sticking solo to ps but now I'm just wanting to run through some of their games just once.

Going with a 360 now probably makes more sense, IMO.

I would say no to x360 and "sure why not" to having an XB1 in addition to your ps4.

I have both and enjoy both as I get to play all the exclusives and get to choose which platform to get any multiplatform games on. The new Tomb Raider will likely be excellent and comes out next month too. Not sure that comes out on x360.

I say get a Gears Ultimate / Fall out 4 combo bundle on BF. Gears is really fun if you've never played it. And lots of people love Halo (I'm not one of them though I'm tempted to get Halo 5 eventually).
