I'm not trying to sell anyone on this and don't see it being worth the price at this moment in time, but one has to look past the immediate future to understand the value with any new system purchase. I can see the logic if one was shopping for a Xbox One today and was going to spend several hundred dollars, in considering paying the premium to future proof themselves to a degree (At least for the next 2 or 3 years). The list of Xbox One X games doesn't start and end with the currently announced lineup. I wouldn't do it since these upgrades sadly appear likely to become a regular thing and I'd rather be a step or so behind and enjoy the savings, even if it means a lesser resolution and a few frame rate hiccups along the way. But I can still see the other side of the fence.
