Poll: Xbox One 1TB Limited Edition Halo 5 Console or Xbox One S (20 votes)

Xbox One 1TB Limited Edition Halo 5 Console 40%
Xbox one S 60%

So I have found a brand new halo 5 limited edition on amazon lower priced than the S model. I love special edition consoles and this one looks smooth! however the S model as newer tech and can do 4k video. Though I watch movies through my PS4 and other than a new HDR feature in the S model, most differences seem cosmetic.

That being said, help me decide which is the better choice!

If it were I then the LE Halo 5 console because I like to own collectible stuff.

Unless you want to use the 4k features of the XB1 S, I'd just go the Halo LE.

Do you ever plan on getting a 4k TV? Then get the X1S. My Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones) and movies look great.

went ahead and ordered the halo 5 limited edition, it won't be around long and if so the price will sky rocket, I found one new on Amazon from Amazon for $300. I'll skip the Xbox one S and wait for the Scorpio.

Xbox one slim by far

I think the LE XB1 looks kinda ugly. I'd just go with the $299 XB1S. I guess they both come with Halo 5 and Halo MCC. Anyhow, with an XB1S you'd be future proofing yourself when those 4K HDR TVs are more affordable and you pick one up, I'd go with that too over the SATA III advantage. Also, use a few extra bucks and get an external HDD, a 2TB WD USB 3.0 external HDD would be sufficient.

I have the LE console it's pretty cool, the design of the controller is cool enough, although the metal earth figure that comes with the console is a pain in the ass to assemble

I love the design of both the console and controller as well. I'm not even going to mess with that metal earth figure.
