    Way to get me go back to XBOX Sony...

    SO.. No 4k TV Still have most of my OG XBOX games, a few 360 games that I'm not sure are BC.

    There are some good Black Friday deals incoming....

    Suggestions?

    Is Quantam break any good?
    Anyone still playing Killer Instinct?

    Cuphead I'm getting right away.
    Rare Replay
    The Ori games

    I'm not DONE with Playstation in the same manor I was DONE with XBOX in 2013, as long as I get my Yakuza games uncut my PS4 still has a home and there are still a few uncensored boobie games to pick up that Nanny Sony hasn't soiled yet. But I can't in good conscious give this company money for new games if they're going to act like early 90s Nintendo.

    EVEN THE SWITCH HAS UNCUT BOOBIE GAMES!

    Some PC releases are the best option now if you care about no censorship (unless you're not in the US as this causes issues)
    Xbox One releases probably dont get as much weeb shit so if that's you're thing as opposed to the couch gamer bro and doritos then you're probably not going to enjoy it
    Switch will probably just be like a Vita but relevant, you get Nintendo games that other platforms dont, and what would until recently be the PS4 versions of games in terms of censorship
    There's no real good solution here unfortunately

    If you go for Xbox One, get the X, it's better future proofing and has the same benefits as the S (they're the same size, both have UHD BD support).
    Pick up a copy of Sunset Overdrive (UNLESS you want the UWP/Steam versions on Windows as it was recently announced), Rare Replay, obviously the Master Chief Collection, Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct (must be cheap, low playerbase iirc for both),

    Probably good to grab a big ol drink too

    I already have a Switch and will buy ALL THE WEEB. The Xbox One will be for 3rd party multi platform stuff like DOA6, Devil May Cry V, and Sekrio and I guess Soul Calibur VI.

    Fingers crossed the Cave games make that BC list.

    Only keeping the PS4 around for Yakuza.

    Next Gen I'll probably build a Gaming PC and throw Launch box on it.

    Depending on where Yakuza, BlazBlue and Guilty Gear Gear, end up will decide what I do for my main Console next gen. Hopefully Sega keeps Yakuza going on PC.

    Edit: It begins I already started compiling a list of games to get on XBOX One

    "which is best: the best version of the xbox or the one that isn't?"

    This is how this thread reads. If you have the cash, get the x as it's better, especially if you have a 4k/hdr TV. If you don't, get the s or a used original if you don't care about the size and uhd bluray playback.


    Edit:
    Bunch of the games on your list are on gamepass. Maybe get that for a bit and finish them, rather than buying.

    I'm getting the X, I don't have a 4k TV yet but the performance boost seems worth it.

    I've thought about Game pass and there's also Games with gold. I like having a collection though, but I admit I probably won't get everything on that list.

    Most of my left over Xbox and 360 games aren't backwards compatible yet I was surprised Bullet Soul, Guwange and Raiden IV were there.
    I really hope the other Cave games make it I don't want to dust off my 360 it's a non HDMI model that still works somehow.

    Well, if it's the original Xenon model with the 203W power supply and it still works you should head for the nearest casino immediately, since you clearly have outstanding luck!

    What's the Mega millions Jackpot now?

    Anyway what's worth checking out that's backwards compatible besides Daytona and Panzer Dragoon Orta? I've poopoo'd that feature before but if they feel like new games, might as well, Xbox games of any gen are dirt ass cheap

    The original xbox backwards compatibility is very impressive (on the x at least).fmv still looks bad as it's original. But games themselves have seemingly had resolution increased (think gamecube and dolphin).

    Shame there's not that many games. But rocking fusion frenzy with my son and its all good. Jade garden was great at the time, I've not got it just incase it ruins my memories of it.

    I hope the list grows more, I only have a handful of Original XBOX games that work and even fewer Physical 360 games that will work.

    I love how cheap most of the games are getting though, this seems like a good time to... Jump in (XBOX sound)

    How was Quantum Break?
    Super Lucky's tale?

    I have quite a bit of trade credit coming from Estarland so I'll get my initial games there and next pay day order my system.

    You don't have to tell me to get Cuphead...I'm getting Cuphead.

    I'm back, for now. I'm not sure, but I think your idea that the Xbox One is somehow better as far as censorship is probably wrong. Microsoft has a long history of censoring stuff, and I don't think that's changed much. Since you already have a PS4 and a Switch, if you're interested in getting another system, I would recommend you buy/build a gaming PC - if you don't already have one. Like PixelButts suggested, censorship on PC is likely to be less of an issue, and there are probably lots of PC games that would appeal to you. Also, there are PC versions of the majority of the games that are on the Xbox One but not on the PS4. You mentioned Killer Instinct, Quantum Break, and Cuphead: all of those are on PC. That's just my suggestion.

    I'm aware of What Microsoft has done. Just this week I was Quoted as saying "Microsoft, Where creativity goes to die." In reference to what happens when they buy a Studio or...the Platenum games incident.

    I'm very much leaning towards PC but I'm waiting to see how next gen pans out first. The rumors are just starting now so I figure 2-3 years top to figure it out.

    I also have quite a few XBLA games that are BC on Xbone I'd like to play again. The boost of power on the X is very enticing too.

    Then there's this

    I have a 43 inch 1080p LCD. Aside from some minor Backlight bleed everything looks great on it.

    I can't wait to play Doom again on the X just to see how sexeh it looks on my Screen.

    Downsamples 4k looks perettu fantastic in 1080p.

    I've been future proofing my set up with HDMI 2.0 cables and my Roku is an Ultra then there's the X I'm 4k ready but my current TV is just fine.

    Agreed.

    4k is better, but It's the hdr that makes the biggest and most impressive difference to be honest. 1080 is certainly good enough on smaller sized screens. 1080 shows its edges as you go larger.

    I'm looking at OLED TV's right now.. it's either 65" LG OLED or 70" Sony LCD for $1000 cheaper. I was thinking the LCD but Tetris Effect would look so bad ass on an OLED methinks. Any thoughts?

    4k just seems brighter from my vantage point. Maybe I'm not seeing all the Benefits? I do have poor eyesight in my left eye so that could be it too.

    Who cares anyway the 8k revolution is incoming.

    OLED for sure. There was a recent thread on shmups where someone asked about OLEDs, where I posted my thoughts:
