I got the XB1X Jedi Fallen Order deal for 279 on Amazon at the beginning of last December. The console should hold up fine. It's still a powerful rig.

Over the last few weeks, MS has been 'blowing out' all their Xbox One X 'bundles' for $299. Once they are gone they will be gone forever. I don't need another console, but bought the GoW 5 limited edition X (it is a really nice console, with laser etching, comes with all 5 GoW games and the custom controller is nice as well), because it was such a good 'deal'. I suspect that $299 will be the floor for the X, and I doubt it will go any lower, because they are probably just moving inventory at this point. As supply goes down, I think the price goes back to $399 for the regular X and probably holds that price as when the new console comes out.

I think in 2017, there was some mention from Phil Spenser that the X cost ~$500 to make, and that they were not making any money on the console.http://www.businessinsider.com/xbox-...ncer-e3-2017-6

I bet even 2+ years latter the X probably costs more than $300 to make, so I doubt that they keep making them and then selling them for a loss.

Wowzers! I'm going to check the MS Store daily for the rest of the year. And when I see that miracle price of $199 again...I'm all over it! That will really hook me and the Grandson up great for online coop. Thanks JRocker23.

If you don't mind going refurb, it looks like $230 is the going price for an X now. Walmart online has them, and the same price at Dell includes Witcher III game.

For Dolby Atmos, has the behavior of the "Upmix multi channel to Atmos" options been confirmed? As in, do we know if it only upmixes to 2 height channels or 4?

Right now I'm still rolling with using 5.1 PCM so my receiver upmixes to heights correctly and then just enabling Atmos whenever I play a game with Atmos sound.

Gotta save up for the series X that $199 is near half of that price.

I am actually leaning slightly toward that too. But who knows what they will do or when they will actually launch that series...in the face of this pandemic and a collapsing economy & stock market that is in freefall already. MS and Sony could end up taking a bloodbath on their new consoles...if not being forced into a catastrophic price war, at launch (into a collapsed retail market). Here's hoping they can launch the Series X. And if that one hits the depressed retail market at $299-$350, I'll swing that way easily.

Still a long way off before a rumored holiday launch, but even then, they have to have the factories up and running to have consoles ready. Remember the Xbox 360 launch, where it was well into March and April before you could easily find them. But it wouldn't surprise me to see Microsoft scale back dramatically for E3, and announce a summer 2021 launch.
