Welp, it's now available for pre-order, so who's jumping in?

I just ordered mine!

Does that thing look like a PS2 or what?

I'm holding off. I just bought a PC recent and picked up Hai and iPad mini earlier tonight. I need to put my spending on hold for a bit.

Congrats on getting in on the Scorpio Edition.

I have no money right now so probably will not own it for the foreseeable future.

Shiny new graphics are always good but with my current library I see no point in buying it, I might as well just wait till Sony puts out a Pro 2. Which will happen eventually.

I'll pre-order as long as they can put aside a non-Scorpio edition for me. Looking forward to seeing if they make good use of the extra power.

Amazon, GameStop, etc. were already sold out, which is why I went for the Microsoft store option.

Now the question becomes, "what 4K UHD HDR TV should I get?"

As always that's going to come down to budget. I'm considering an LG, they seem to have the best picture right now.

Budget, yes. Also, Black Friday!

For reference!

Yep, that's the model I'm considering (65" version). My biggest issue is my Samsung 3D from a couple years ago still looks great...but it's not 4K.

Yeah, I have a 60" Vizio, which has been stellar, and still looks bloody fantastic. And I'm reluctant to have more than one TV in the house.

I got the LG C7 55" and it is pretty awesome: I'd recommend it, though the price has been dropping so don't rush into it unless money is no object. I got it on double sale back in May, and it's available for $200 less now.

I pre-ordered today, I was a little surprised by the $50 deposit EB asked for. Also, they were unfortunately only offering the Scorpio Edition.

If you're buying 4k and are able to take advantage of HDR just make sure you get a 10-bit panel or, at the very least, do a bit of research on the quality of the TVs HDR display capabilities as not all HDR is created equally.

If you're not in a rush to buy a new TV you may want to wait for HDMI 2.1 to come out. While most of its capabilities won't be standard for another few years (or more) the one that's big for gamers is that it will support 120Hz (even at 4k)where as HDMI 2.0a and 2.0b only support 60Hz. If you're mainly a console gamer this may not be that big of a deal but if you have your PC hooked up to your TV this could be a huge benefit.

I'd buy one of these if they got the goddamned sleep function to work properly.

It works for me always. The only game that has given me shit is Arkham Knight, but that game was plagued with technical problems.

civil sucks, and clearly doesn't know it.

I'm considering buying one as a 4K BD player but haven't pulled the trigger yet. The only thing stopping me at this point is they've showed zero games I'm interested in that would make it a better purchase over a normal player.

If you want a 4K Blu-Ray Player, get an Xbox One S. Half the price and does the job.
