(SAD=One S All Digital Edition)for those confused

Rumors are pointing to $250US from conversion.

Only 1TB.

So is the SAD dead on arrival.

With an all digital version you'd expect 2TB or more considering how much game space are , and $250??? I'd say $150 is more acceptable.

Another cow thread about SADE, but cows keep telling me that Xbox is dead lol.

I've said it before and i'll say again an all digital gaming device is the wrong thing for the gaming industry and I will not support it.

Now cows go watch a game or something.

I'm not a console gamer but I assume you can probably upgrade it. Or at least transfer games your not currently running to another drive.

I agree though, 1TB is not enough. On PC, I have probably like 2 TB of games installed and its only a tiny fraction of the games I own.

Doesn't take long to fill up space when a small game is like 5-10gbs these days and the larger games are easily 50-80gb. I think there's been some games that hit even of 100gb. I heard that Star Citizen was over 100gb now in size due to them using 8k textures. Even like 8-10 hr games like Call of Duty are almost 100gb for some reason.

I'd think the average size of a AAA game is at least 20gb-50gb now. Pretty much leaving a 1TB xbox space for maybe 20-30 games. Not a big deal if you have unlimited bandwidth you can download games if you delete them, but i bet most people won't want to redownload huge games and transfer them onto bigger drives if possible.

I think this consoles for people with really good internet that have no problems downloading games quickly.

$ 250 seem weird.

They trying to please physical retailers/consumers indirectly? High pricing to be perceived as less of a threat?

Lol, saying SADE instead of SAD is such a lem thing. The Sad edition Bone is such a scam. Same case mold to trick parents and saving on plastic, only 1tb and being over 200 bucks. For all we know, those are used consoles with the disc drive removed.

$150? Maybe $180. I think people don't realized how expensive computer chips are sometimes.

But...on a side note, I'd personally rather save the $250 for a Nintendo Switch or a 2TB SSD for my computer.

To be honest, I really thought this Xbox One S Disc-less was already out. Guess I been living under a rock but then again, I really don't pay attention to Xbox One consoles anyways.

Just buy the Xbox One S

Assuming the price is around $249.....that's still overpriced for a disc less console. If there's no moving parts, other than the fan, and runs quiet, $149-$199 should be about right.

you would of thought this system would be 199. due no disc drive. I guess MS has to make back the tons of money they've lost this gen.

MS are the KING of ripping off their customers.

Do you really expect them to give xbox fans a product they won't have to do a mandatory upgrade for or be forced to stream content for a monthly subscription fee?

Com'on use your head.

Less hard drive space + no disk drive = FORCED streaming adoption! This is M$ easy money tactics 101.

This is M$'s thinking!

@boxrekt: You're not using your grey matter if you think 1TB is going to force gamers to stream because they don't have physical discs. Take a moment and think this one through. I will wait. 🤫

That's actually a pretty good deal.

For those thinking 1 TB is not enough, it should be; you won't be able to keep all of your games installed, but you will certainly be able to keep many of them installed at once. I've had a 1 TB drive on my PC for five years now, it's never been an issue.

Yeah, the SAD Xbone is a bit of a dumb purchase.

A lazy attempt by MS. You would have thought it is in their interests to make this version well balanced and affordable considering they're the ones that want to push for an all digital future.

Decent price, with a few games thrown in. It won't make big sales numbers, but it's a pretty solid entry-point for console gaming.

It's literally cheaper than all modern counterparts. Having less components is what can drive down the cost... Are you all there?

@pdogg93: Nobody asked for a cheaper console? Yeah, download only is a limit, but it's a cheaper option. BTW, I have 6TB's of storage on my PC, split 3 and 3 (games and other media.) My Game drive is less than 1TB, and I only utilize downloadable games.

I feel like System Wars is really off on this one (surprise, i know lol)

There has been study after study that show that the majority of gamers are moving to digital only gaming.

Even if you dont buy the research, look at what is happening to Gamestop and Walmart game sales.

I think MS is right on the product, wrong on the price and HDD space.

An all digital console needs more than 1TB of space.

@jcrame10: well, no I don't follow Xbox on social media, but near as I can tell this was posted before the news came out? Also, my point stands that we already have a thread complaining about the price... Just in euros, no?

I mean, no big deal. Especially now that it's seemingly confirmed. Two threads on this issue won't bring SW down

$200 for the Xbox One S is currently the standard price. Because the system is perpetually "on sale" to argue that its $300 would be disingenuous.

1TB is enough for digital only.

Got a 512 + 256 gb ssd and never had issue's.

Games you don't play anymore delete them and re-download when i need too.

Want more space buy a bigger drive.

Because game downloads are huge these days.

One of the great things about having a disc is that you dont feel any hesitation about uninstalling a game you arent currently playing because it doesnt take long to install again.

Downloading a 50GB game takes hours and hours so people tend to keep games on their drives.

Same with PC.

With gamers going more and more digital only, this is why Sony and MS support external drives.

Sure, we could argue that people could just buy external drives and that is a very valid argument............but it also reinforces my point.

I think it shouldve been 2TB minimum

I am not a fan of vacuum arguments. A person who would be purchasing a system like this will not be the person with shit internet. If a gamer needs more room for any game they simply uninstall the least played game like they currently do. All games have to be installed on the hard-drive and typically updated after the installation. This fake concern about the size is severely overblown because its not a problem on existing systems and folks who want more storage currently do. Disc drives doesn't negate the fact that all games needs to be installed on the hard-drive.
