    This is going to be a huge fail. Yes the games are decent, but you can regularly pickup game pass for $1 and live for $1. $370 nzd and you have no option of returning a game if you don't like it, or trading/selling it. You can buy a new 1tb for usually around $399

    If it was $170-200 USD maybe it'd be a deal

    $249USD and apparently you can buy S editions with disc drive for $249USD in most places.

    What're you doing, Microsoft?

    I mean, this is just the out-of-the-door RRP, the price in store will always be lower than the version with the disc drive. And ultimately, you're saving ~$50, or whatever it ends up being ultimately, so if you're not going to be using discs it's a good choice, right?

    Do you really think Microsoft didn't look at numbers of people purely playing digital games and not make their decision based on that?

    Either way it's not something I care much about but it seems like a pretty canny business decision, plenty of kids out there who just wanna play minecraft or fortnite or whatever and plenty of parents who want to save a buck and some hassle.

    What it really means is that the next XBox won't have a disc drive and retailers will sell download codes rather than physical media.

    This is a market test for the next Xbox, if they can't sell it even at a budget price point they won't use it for next gen.

    Yeah I think this is a test to see if it will be viable to do two versions for next gen. One will be the traditional with a disc drive and then if the numbers work with this test a second version with no disc drive that could be offered at cheaper price point. Microsoft are really making a push for people to buy into their services especially gamepass so having an xbox act as a device to market soley this service and other microsoft services seems like a win win to microsoft they just need numbers to show that it will work and that is why doing a test with an xbox one S with no drive makes sense.

    Why are people still buying disks rather than just digital copies anyway?

    Cost mostly. Somehow it is more expensive to download something than it is to ship it half way across the world. KH3 for example, is $25 more expensive digitally so you're actually better off not buying this console if you buy more than a few games.

    For this reason, I don't see this console being popular at all outside the USA.

    So you can resell the game & not be stuck with one you'll probably never play again anyway?

    The lack of ownership and right of resell hurts the consumer.
