Can the Xbox SAD give MS a shot at winning an NPD again?

Since investing more in hardware than games is the name of the game for the average Xbox console gamer, will the SAD give the Xbox One the same very brief shot in the arm the S did back in the long, long days ago of 2016? Good GOD that was ancient history. I actually hear of some Xbox guys willing to invest in this console even though they already own an S for some dumb reason. Can this gullibility work in MS's favor this May?

C'mon Xbox, break the streak! I mean, this could all change if MS decides to stealth release their new console[s] this year, but they may not do that. We know the discounts can't help it reach the top, so maybe the third revision of the Xbone will be the charm, no?

Obviously not, because it's not like the market is giving them a choice. But c'mon. Don't you want to take home a W sometime?

Phil must've put Mike in a headlock because he's not getting emotional and weepy lately... the fanbase provides enough of that already.

If it is no more than $200 it might have a slim chance but any price higher no chance.

No need to follow the Xbox brass on Twitter, their crying and mewling will spill out to the rest of the internet eventually. And all I'm doing is asking a question. As far as you guys go, you should be cheerleading this, or are you just used to being in the the backseat? Which is perfectly okay. Just thought Xbox would like to try to get one more win before killing the sales of the current console with the announcement of new consoles at E3, since they have to make every E3 about new hardware to get attention now.

Why would I cheerlead something i'm against? have you not seen other threads on this site, I mean I know you live in your own little world but read some.

I'm against a fully digital console (or any other gaming device) no matter who makes it, sorry I don't fit into whatever stupidity you're trying to portray here.

I guess. Xbox seems more interested in bringing what they have to everyone else's table these days.

$99?! That would be crazy, but I can't see it happening. Then again, maybe I shouldn't question the desperation of Xbox.

It's kind of a bad idea honestly. I'm not sure why anyone would buy this.

I wish I could add more but I'm really drawing a blank here.

Apparently you can still get the regular Xbox One S for cheaper. So this "$50 savings" for the Xbox SAD edition isn't even worth it.

What's the point of this console if it's meant to be cheaper, but is actually more expensive and not gaining you much? Consumers actually lose out because they have to pay more for something removed!

MS management brain not so work good.

The Xbox dudes have zero sense of hypocrisy on this board. Pointing this out to them falls on deaf ears.
