Also a number of S's at Target for in store pickup in Chicagoland.  $285 with red card.

 

Last 2 morning's I saw a few X's in stock at various stores near Chicago for store pickup too.  If you want an X you may want to check target daily each AM,  That is how I got mine.

I so would get an Xbox Series S, if I could just play my old Xbox discs.  Throw in an optical drive or let me use any usb Blu-ray/DVD drive that grants me a "free" digital copy of my disc based games.

Would even settle using my discs as a "key" to playing digital copies downloaded to an Xbox Series S.  Still needing the disc inserted every time I want to play.

Xscreen is funded and they charged me this morning. The s is gonna make a nice portable console. The expansion drive jumps between s and x just fine and also means only downloading things once if you have 2 consoles.

I'm curious - aren't the game assets that are downloaded for Series X going to be different for some games than the assets for those same games on Series S?

Received my Series X from Microsoft.com and sold my XBox One X in like 5min for $300. Can’t believe it sold that quick.

this semiconductor shortage is crazy!   apparently the prices/value of PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X has shot up due to shoppers going for the next best thing when they can't get the new machines.     crazy times!

They need to "Horizon" Flight Simulator.  That shit is mad boring.

Sold my PS4 Pro for $350 which is what I paid for it after a Dell coupon, made the PS5 upgrade real cheap.  Now I need a Series X to come in stock at Microsoft so I can use rewards.  I'll give it to my son and sell the One X I gave him when I got my Series X for more than I'll pay out of pocket.

So, instead of open world, make it closed circuit? :p

(Since it's the other way around with Forza)

 

I'm enjoying the game though.  It's nice when you figure out how to setup normal flying and even autopilot (not the AI co-pilot).  I'm working on the first bush trip and I've liked learning how to setup the flight and get to the next airport.  It's a chill game for sure.

Hey guys, random question. Finally got around to opening my Series X and unsurprisingly have very little space (especially since I just loaded up 3 years of Live and converted it to Ultimate Game Pass). I'm planning on waiting for cheaper or larger SSD storage (the expansion slot, forget what it's called), but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for USB external drive(s) in order to maximize X360/XB1 games? Happy to pay a little more if it means maximizing GB/dollar.

Anything will work. Checkout some of the target and Walmart clearances. 
 

You can also store series X games on the external and move them to internal to play. Better than redownloading repeatedly.

This is what I recommend doing for X1 games as well. The internal SSD's faster load times will be appreciated.

 

I'd say try frequently checking Best Buy's "Deals of the Day" page, they have HDDs on there all time.

It sold fast because it's now OOP and frankly may see an uptick in value in the future due to rarity. I'm holding onto mine even though I don't need it for that reason alone.

Appreciate the heads up, but no luck for me. I was waiting for it. Showed as in stock for about 90 seconds, but when I tried to add it to cart it popped up with this weird "press and hold" to verify your account thing that didn't work at all. Just kept saying please try again. By the time I logged in with a diff browser, it showed oos. Darn.

I couldn't get logged in on the website, and past the bot protection. I ordered one via their app on my phone, and went through very quickly.

Perhaps you are a bot? What was your Voight-Kampff test score?

So they more I looked into it the more I wanna get a USB 3.2 SSD for all non-S|X games and whenever prices drop/more manufacturers join/bigger sizes come out I'll buy an official expansion. Figure that maximises speed since speed tests show external SSD load times being almost as good internal drive for XB1/X360 games...

GameStop and retailers still aren’t getting series S in store are they? I’m thinking about getting my wife an S, so I figure checking stock alerts is still the only way? Has S model gotten any easier to find, seemed like it was staying in stock a bit longer back in spring
