Poll: For PC/PS4/Switch owners but don't have Xbone, will you buy Xbox One SAD edition? (66 votes)

Yes 15%
No 85%

A simple poll for non Xbone owners, are you excited for the SAD edition and will you be picking this one up? its still Xbox one but now its SAD.

Advantages;

  • All Digital no Physical
  • Backwards Compatible Games
  • Able to Play Current Gen Games
  • Has *Exclusive Games

Disadvantage;

  • It is an Xbox
  • Power is comparable to "S" model
  • "S" model able to multitask as a UHD 4K player

*Only if you don't count PC as competitor/ Cuphead is not 1st party game

At the current price point I can’t imagine why anyone would buy this over an Xbone S.

"All Digital, no physical"

That's an automatic no from me

To be honest, if anyone wants to make their console an all digital only, why not just do it on Xbox One S/X despite the disc drive is on it? I turn my launch PS4 into an all digital console, the same can be done for current Xbox One consoles. This SAD edition is a huge waste, even by MS standards. All that resource wasted and should have been used for Xbox Scarlet.

As for the question, hell fucking no!

@davillain-: But you can be the proud owner of the SAD edition! think about it, even the console is sad it is an Xbox. Makes a very good conversation piece.

I'd just get an S 4k player able to play old 360 games. There's no redeeming factors for the Sad edition.

I'd buy the next version of Xbox in the SAD version. I have 1 physical game and 40+ digital ones.

No brainer really.

No. I welcome anyone to give me one legit reason why a PC gamer should own an Xbox.

Kids?, option to play if PC is in use? Make use of 4k tv? Other than that there isn't much reason. MS doesn't care where you play your games pc/console, software is where the money is and always will be.

Negative. Digital only is a major inconvenience. My game collection is like 90% physical except on my PS Vita. I don't support this and will continue to hold something tangible in my hand when I purchase a game foh

I didn't even want the regular Xbone, so now one with no physical games? pass.

The Xbone has barely any games that interest me that are not on PS4. The only game I can think of that somehow interest me is Super Lucky Tale, as PS4 has barely casual platfomer games.

I don't need the S.A.D.E edition, as I have an Xbox One X.

That's a resounding 'No' according to the poll.

It's almost like that product isn't marketed towards people who frequent gaming forums.

I mean if I was to buy an Xbox One, I would buy one with a disc drive that can play UHD movies at a cheaper price right?

@Litchie: I mean technically if all you play is unmodded steam games with a controller, you may have a compelling reason to buy xbox versus a pc or HTPC.

No reason to buy a bone without any system sellers. Next gen will be even worse for MS lol

I'm interested in this version, but $250 is $50 too much imo, and not being able to play my physical 360 and xbox games are keeping me from buying one atm.

@Litchie: It's cheap, has a lot of games/apps, and has a good ui for use with a controller.

I prefer getting my games on physical formats myself so this all digital Xbox One doesn’t interest me at all regardless of what ever they price it.

Already have an Xbox. And it’s primally because of the UHD playing disc drive.

An absolute hello no. Why would I want another PC-like gaming system which you have no control over the games you supposedly 'buy'. It's bad enough in PC.

#41 Posted by Litchie (23852 posts) -

@Sam3231: Lots of games? Not if you compare to PC, which we are. It's cheap? Yeah, the system is, but the games are cheaper on PC. Good ui? Um, what? Xbox ui is fucking terrible. Ads everywhere, hard to find shit, cluttered. I hate it, Steam ui shits all over it.

@Litchie: Steam is loaded with pure dog shit for games, Steam sales are comparable to Xbox store sales in many cases, the main page of steam is basically a giant advertisement, and big picture mode sucks the big one.

I agree on Steam being a giant advertisement, but it is a store like the xbox store.

but dang Steam sometimes advertise some pretty crap games and those top f2p, have they no shame at all.

Hell no. I am not for all digital. I am ok with digital option, but as we have seen, digital games, or games as a service have an end date. I can still play old NES, SNES, PS1, Genesis, PS2, PS3, OG Xbox games etc... Not so much with x games as a service game that has it's servers shut down because it saves the company $2 on their fiscal reports.

Also, it's Xbox. As a PC/PS4/Switch/3ds/Vita/multi-retro console owner, Xbox has offered nothing for me that I can't get on one of my existing platforms. I am not a Halo fan. I have alternatives to Forza. So what am I missing out on?
