    For yous with new fancy shmancy TV's that can take advantage of HDR, 4K, and the like, are ahead of the curve. Other than those few bullet points, i don't see the need....yet.

    Ultimately, i need one of my TV's to die before i make the leap. Otherwise, to buy the $500 console, i also need to drop $1,500 on a new TV to make it worth it.

    All i have to say is "Crackdown is the greatest series of all time" ;)

    ^This...

    Although in my case I just tell my wife I want to move the 60" Plasma to the loft to get a skinnier TV for downstairs.... "Might" work then just move the 48" to our bedroom and put the 40" in the garage..... maybe lol.......

    I'm cheap AF.
    I won't buy a TV to accommodate a console. Maybe i'll look into a new TV next year if we move which means, maybe i'll look at the new console next year if we move...

    We only have 2 TV's in the house. (Living and Mancave) No TV's in the bedroom because when i go to bed, my goal is to sleep.

    2........i have 2 children that i know of. Definitely had a scare back in college that might have produced a 3rd. Never found out :D

    We are are moving because my wife hates our raised ranch house. I kind of agree with her. We are 3 years beyond the "5 year first home rule".

    If all it does is 4K then it isn't useful. TV 4K upscaling is pretty darn good.

    Native 4K...not upscaled. It's got the horsepower to basically tell the slightly hot rodded XBox One S to go take a hike eh. I'm considering one for the living room to play with my 4K TV, move the One S to the living room and sell the standard One. It would be worth it.

    Gaming in upscaled 4K vs native 4K is a whole 'nother ballgame compared to watching video.

    Even though I haven't used my Xbox One in ages I guess I will have get one of these. Just in case I start playing again. :)

    Is this going to be like videos where favorite games are going to released as 4K so I have to buy them again? LOL

    Any older games that get patched for 4K will be done so for free, any newer games that get out of the box support for 4K will be the same price as any new game, no price increase either way.

    Darryl, (I hope I spelled that right). keyboards work great for games like Minecraft (yes I play it...there i said it) but the controllers with the sticks...awesome for driving games like Forza Anything :)

    you got it correctly :) never played minecraft myself

    started with the original doom, and since I figure out how to multiplayer it using null cables it was on :) then Quake - Unreal Tournament - Half-life - Call of Duty etc.. had my own private gaming server for years... I've played just about everything you can imagine game wise since the Atari 2600 & C64 before it became all internet gaming on the PC :)

    on the PC all FPS are best with the WASD + Mouse combo and it is a killer combo and hard to beat.

    but I can't handle racing games because I ruined and the controllers dont fit my brain. All I do is slam into the walls :p

    That's what you are supposed to do in racing games, right?

    I play with a few guys who use a mouse and keyboard with the Xbox.
