Would it be weird to switch my pre-order from a Scorpio edition to a regular edition? Any differences other than the ugly script?

It wouldn't be weird, at least in the dictionary sense. As for the differences:

Quote:
So technically, what is the difference between Xbox One X and the limited release Project Scorpio? According to Microsoft, the latter will sport an aesthetic resembling the original Xbox plus with the addition of the cool-looking green colored name of the system on its front, as well as, a gradient design. Further, a special controller which will have “Project Scorpio Edition” also in green lettering will also be included in the package. Other than these cosmetic changes, there seem to be no significant differences between Project Scorpio with the standard Xbox One X with their internal hardware mostly identical. If anything, the $499 (same price as the 1 TB Xbox One X ) device is only for those die-hard fans of the console line who want to acquire a unit of the one-off variant.

Let's all be honest here. Scorpio was the cooler name.
It's at this point that I'm really eyeing an OG Xbox one since the damn thing should be a lot cheaper now. And yeah, I literally only want it for yearly sportsball and Injustice 2

Any suggestions for fast external storage solutions? I have an external 1TB 7200rpm drive, but am getting the impression that I'll be needing something bigger.

My X1X arrived when I was out of town, and it sat on my doorstep for three days before I got home to get it. Thankfully, it was still there. Setup was a breeze!

Now I need to figure out a new telly!

No problems with mine. Gears 4 looks stunning in HDR.

If you have Halo 5 do yourself a favor: Campaign is 4k enhanced HDR and running at 60fps due to the scaling resolution tech. Looks almost 3D.

Real quick question here... Are the 4K assets downloaded automatically, even when you have a 1080P TV? I have the checkbox checked to automatically download 4K enhancements, but I'm not seeing them.

I've had a hard time figuring it out too, but it seemed to download the patch when I first tried to run the games. If anyone else has more insight I'd be grateful.

Mine seems fine, but I haven't done much with it. 4k Bluray playback has had some voice syncing issues (unfortunately).

Playing Gears of War 4 campaign in 60 FPS is pretty great. The increased resolution and detailed draw distance in Fallout 4 is pretty cool. Hitman looks fucking stunning. Oh, and they updated the audio drivers with the X and now the sound out of my headphones is way more crisp. I'm pretty happy with my purchase so far. Bonus: Holy shit, OG Xbox games load quick.

I'm still waiting on my TV being delivered, which is pissing me off.

Random side question, what headphones are you using?

HyperX Cloud Revolver with the Xbox Stereo Headset Attachment. I know the Xbox controller has a headphone port, but the attachment acts like a low cost receiver that you can mess with on your controller rather than taking your hand off the controller.

I really hope they expand on 360 games that they 'enhance', specifically Fable II. I really love that game, but it looks like garbage and isn't available anywhere else.

Mass Effect is another candidate: Has anyone played the series on PC with a controller mod installed? Does it work well?

I tried that way and it doesn't work especially well due to the way controller support is coded on consoles. With the PC mod, it lacks the console's aim acceleration, sticky aiming, etc... On the other hand, the inventory is 1000% easier to deal with. The BC version of ME on Xbox is really great, though. The elevator rides are still interminably long.
