XBox One S Digital


www.theguardian.com/games/2019/apr/16/discless-xbox-one-release-date-price

Long story short, Microsoft announce new "cheaper" Discless XboxOneS model for "only" £199!
Except I bought my XboxOneS .. WITH a drive.. from Amazon in 2016. That's 3 years ago, and the price.. £199..
So.
Not much of a bargain, then.

I'm sure it'll drop lower than that, but really, why so expensive? And why still so big? Make it a MiniBox or something!!!

Wasted opportunity.

*disc/drive being BluRay drive. There's obviously still a hard drive in there!

Now isn't it called Xbox One because of it's unified media capabilities?, DVD and CD is a media so shouldn't the new One be the One-Minus-One!

Yeah, I really don't think that people are ready for it yet, and not at the same pricepoint it was a few years back, but with even less in the box.

I really can't see who this is aimed at - little Timmy will want to play his mates games (and piratez) while others want the cheaper physical games as well as digital titles. I can't see anyone really wanting ONLY digital stuffage.

Microsoft are bemoaning Google's digital only machine (stating it's of little interest due to it's limited catalogue). Well of course it is right now. But then look at OUYA - 50 gazillion developers and thousands of games, well 7 plus Jay's back-catalogue. And what happened to that? But then, I look at the XBox catalogue and mostly go, "Meh!" but I'm not 13 and don't get a hard on looking at theHD quality of MasterChief's undercrackers or some Manga girl's tits.

I know XBox isn't OUYA, but the next iteration could be.
