What is your opinion on this subject?

I currently own a ps4 and want to grab an xbox one S for GOW4 and Deadrising, and some other exclusives. Would this be foolish with "Scorpio" supposedly lurking?

Do you own a 4K TV with HDR if yes then your Xbox One S is simply a 11 month rental until the Microsoft Scorpio launches.

Really I am looking forward to the Nintendo NX but that has its problems.

with hardware refreshes becoming the norm rather than 6+ year console life cycles, it kind of seems like we're always going to make "foolish" decisions when buying a console. If you have a PC, I'd just skip Xbox. Otherwise yeah I'd probably wait for Scorpio since Xbones is still less powerful than the old PS4.

If it isn't an issue financially I say go for it. I upgraded from my launch Xbox One to the 2TB S for a few reasons:

1. Upgraded controller
2. Less clutter - got rid of power brick, external HDD, Kinect (didn't use)
3. Slightly better framerate in games (?)

Plus, you'll know when you eventually upgrade to Scorpio all the games you've purchased should be forward compatible.
