That doesn't surprise me. The Canada Post courrier in my area is like a sub contractor or something that drives around in a 1989 Plymouth Voyager with a Canada Post sign on top.

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

Best Buy shipped my Xbox One X Scorpio Edition pre-order via Crapolator. Of course I did not get the package.
It seems they auto re-scheduled for a delivery attempt for the next business day because the tracking info states all they did was load it
onto a vehicle for delivery since 12 am.

I am usually not at home if they ever do try to deliver therefore I will probably have to wait a few days a pick it up from them myself.

MS said it was the retailers that decided not to make all their stock available for pre-order, that they can't control what retailers do.
General Radek had some good ideas.

I got mine no problem from Best Buy/Purolator. Going from extreme West of GTA to East. Sorry you will have to wait a day or two.

Digital Foundry compares Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition between XBox One X and PS4 Pro:



Diablo III uses a dynamic resolution. Therefore, it ranges from native 4K (2160p) to 1440p native resolution based on rendering load.

XBox One X runs Diablo III at a native 4k resolution (3840 x 2160p) at almost all times while maintaining 60 FPS.
On average it is a 70% increase in pixel count over the PS4 Pro's average.

PS4 Pro runs Diablo III at a 1720p resolution on average.
The only times the PS4 Pro is at native 4K in Diablo III is interiors of buildings in town and smaller dungeons.

PS4 Pro and One X also have improved lighting (bloom) and improved ambient occlusion over the base PS4 and XBox One models.

Base PS4 runs it at 1080p, 60 frames per second.
Base XBox One runs it at 1080p, 60 frames per second. (Without the patch updates, the XBox One version is 900p)

From their previous videos, on Last-gen consoles:
PS3 and 360 run at 564p native resolution and have significant framerate drops below the 60 frames per second target very frequently in addition to screen tearing.
1120 x 564 native resolution (70% of the pixel output of 720p resolution).

I think these kind of comparisons are point-less. We know the Xbox One X has the more powerful hardware, so it should run better than PS4 Pro.

Just like the last three years, the PS4 version runs better than Xbox One version.

These comparisons generally used as ammo for fanboys (which I know you are not @XFactor11 )

I definitely do not think they are pointless. We know the Tera flops and ram and stuff but none of that really matters to me. Im still on the fence about getting one and I'm genuinely curious to see how this stacks up to the competition and if it's worth the hefty 600$ price tag. These videos that show us framerate / resolution and use the Ps4 pro as a comparison are literally what I'm hinging my purchase on.

Personally though I'm waiting for the heavy hitters to see how this thing actually stacks up. I want CoD, AC, battlefront and Mordor comparisons.

Anyone check out halo 5? Just based on YouTube video alone the IQ increase is dramatic
