Too expensive for what it is. There are often deals to get the normal model for less than this price and if you get Game Pass (which is what I imagine most people who buy these will do) you will already have the two "free" games anyway.

£99 quid with no games and it would be a no brainer
Possibly the most pointless console ever made. Here's the same console minus the 4k blu Ray drive for the same price & in some cases more expensive than the original S which has more features. Phil Spencer been on that hippy juice again.

Right guys this is were every one needs to wise up and take a stand against MS , you seen it coming and see what the future they want, digital only console's, what this means for us in the future is games you want will be SO MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE ! Even if your like myself who watches there penny's and wait for games to drop in price for the price your willing to pay! You won't be able to go look at cex ,eBay ,cdkeys etc anymore as you will be paying for digital codes in the future, now it has been proven that more people are playing digital only games, but this is not by choice! considering their sales are digital only and sometimes the games are much cheaper than the shops I listed above,and the games we claim every month are digital also,so digital is actually been forced upon us, as a backwards fan I get my games so much cheaper than what they demand me to pay, gamepass is not actually a great service,as im like most people here ,when you find a game you like you tend to stick to it for months for that online gameplay you hope never dies, don't be fooled and make are future and the next generation gaming life expensive too,the only people I know who are digital only are a few off my mates on Xbox that disc drives are broken and can't afford a new one! So if this is a hit, kiss your cheap discs good bye and welcome to a expensive gaming world in about 5 years! I won't be buying. Plus my Xbox one s at black Fri was £160 with Forza 4, as you may see in the picture below I'm not willing to let go off my favourite games on bwc and yes I have got alot off FPS games got from cex at £1-2 waiting for them to become bwc & yes I still have a 360 due to my addiction to BLUR

Don't see it doing well for this price

199 with the newest Forza (which you can sell on at at better price than 3 if you want) and UHD bluray player which buying one on it's would cost about £100
Cheapest around, heat from me

They probably looked at the amount of disc loading used on the disc version One S. Realised no one is actually using that many when compared to digital. And therefore dont actually need to discount that much.

Plus they still have a tonne of drive versions to clear out before selling all digital main stream.

This is a tester pitched at those XBL/GP members that are ready. Many users are still children that have parents buying for them and would still like to give that ‘game’ in a physical box just to have something to wrap up.
Wrapping a 25 digit code doesn’t quite have the same excitement.

I’d be interested in a teardown to see what they have used the drive space for. Or just been lazy and left a huge drive shaped space and slapped on a new slot free fascia.

If the UK prices weren't so ridiculous I could get on with this. Also if foreign ways to buy were still as easy as they were.

149 would have been a decent price
thegamecollection.net/xbo…ne/


Full fat one with Sekiro for 199. CrackEXchange give 32 quid cash for Sekiro taking price of the console down to 168 and I believe 3 months game pass is possibly a quid at the moment so you can play the "free games" anyway
The machine itself appeals to me. I mean if they'd have released an X version at a lower price when the X launched then I'd have probably gone for it. I think I've only ever put FO76 in my console, and that was for all of 40 minutes, if that.

What I don't understand is the choice of games. In a time where Microsoft are pushing Game Pass with everything they have, why not just drop the three games and bundle it with a 12 months Game Pass sub? Two of the three games are on Game Pass and the forth installment of the third game is in there too.

I suppose we've got to remember £199.99 is an RRP, and I think we'll soon see these closer to £149.99. As it stands now, I just don't see the value at the cost of a 4K UHD player. Go with a standard S with one decent game.

Heat from me bud, rolling the ball on lower prices is always a positive

Don't forget you're locked out of playing and 360/OG discs you have for free and will be forced to pay for Skate 3, Catherine etc if you want to play it again.

They should have priced this clearly lower than what the S is going for now, £129 or near.
Silly price

They left a huge space where the disk drive went. They literally just took it out.
Console prices are crazy high. I bought a PS4 with Star Wars Battlefront included for £220 back in December 2015. 3 1/2 years later and they seem to cost more than I paid! Surely as people start looking to next gen, the standard (non pro or X) versions of the main consoles should not cost much more than £100
That RRP makes a mockery of their initiative - Tying you to their store for all purchases needs to represent a significant cost saving.

Or for £10 more get the bundle which includes the d/l code for either Anthem/Battlefield V/Division 2 AND the game disc of Forza Horizon 4.

1TB hahahahaha jeez Microsoft that’s embarrassing
I don’t see the point in this console it’s no smaller or quicker and it’s at best the same price as a Xbox one s which has a uhd blu-Ray drive.dont get why Any one would buy it.plus the fact digital games from the uk on release cost more then a disc version 99% off the time.

What could have been COLD
£175 with a years Game Pass would have been a good deal otherwise it should have been £129 with 3 months gold pass.

I'm less concerned about Microsoft or Sony going all digital, they do do bargain prices after a year or two. It's Nintendo I worry about, would literally price me out of their games for 20 years

Bloody hell dude take a breath :). I don't have an XB myself yet but even I'd say that gamepass is great value, especially for those who want to play a load of games.

Considering the size of games in the future, the relatively poor connection speeds that many will still have, and the considerable buying power of people who will always want physical media, I don't think physical games are going anywhere anytime soon.

Which makes sense, why spend millions (probably) on R&D on a product that's pretty much at the end of the life cycle.

For me the product makes sense, but the pricing does not.

This is a budget console aimed at the casual crowd just wanting to play the likes of Fortnite or Rocket League. You and I are not the target audience for this. Too many people seem to be taking this personal thinking it is aimed at themselves and Microsoft is trying to force this upon them.

This is an entry level console for someone that doesn't have a physical collection of games. The likes of a mobile gamer or a single mother wanting to get their little kid an Xbox to play Fortnite with his mates. Stop making this personal and all about yourself!
Looks sh!t.

I don’t think people think it’s being forced on them.I think people don’t understand the cost of it when you can pick up a Xbox s for the same cost or less.it just don’t make sense to a lot of people and me included.if it is a way for single mothers trying to get a console for her children then shame on Microsoft for exploiting the fact she prob don’t know digital games cost more then physical media.

The standard disc drive S with Forza, Minecraft and Sea of Thieves would cost much more than the All-Digital so it is a budget console when you consider this and it being a good entry level for a first time Xbox owner getting to own a few games straight out of the box.

The Spring Sale has shown that many digital games can be much cheaper than their physical counterpart.

Minecraft and sot are on gamepass and Forza 3 is probably about £3 on eBay. The games have next to zero value. You could even pass on Forza 3 and just have 4 which is also on gamepass. I’m guessing you can get a proper xboxs and gamepass for less than the Xbox sad.
Edited by: "migavupe" 17th Apr
Ok I’ll give you the fact that they give you mine craft which is around £10. if you really wanted it forza horizon 3 (old game 4 is out)and sea of thieves which are both included with game pass which is £1 for 3 months at the moment.trust me any kid will be bored of them two games within that time.as for cheap digital games 99% off titles on launch cost more digital £10-£20. We’ll have to agree to disagree on the sales being better digital then physical because I disagree there because shops also put games on sale.this poor kid also can’t trade his/her games in when he or she is done playing them or borrow them from his/her friends.the whole console just seems pointless at this price point which is why it’s gone cold.if it was £100 fair enough they could recoup the loss of the Xbox console cost in there over inflated non sale digital market place.

Yes they are on Game Pass but you don't own them and they are only available to you depending on how long you are subscribed for. Sea of Thieves continues to increase in popularity and with Arena mode about to start at the end of April it will remain a much sought after game. Minecraft apart from the cdkeys deals continues to hold its price.

Would seem kinda silly to have a digital only Xbox and not have game pass so two of the games off the bat are worth zero.
