I have been seeing the Series S all over the place now but still holding out for an X that is not part of some goofy bundle. 

Walmart, Target, and Best Buy have all had the Series X outside of a bundle recently, so keep an eye on those websites.  With Target, you may just have to walk into a store and see though.

Xbsx is the same architecture and it’s 20% more powerful. That being said, yes I can confirm a hacked xbxsx plays ps5 games BETTER than the ps5. It’s really impressive to see the added 20% in performance. 😏

Thanks for pointing out the stand alone option. I just cashed in some gift cards and rewards points and paid $20 out of pocket for a Series X!

Can you let us know if they charged you correctly? Some people were saying that if you didn't pay for it entirely with  Xbox/Microsoft credit they charge your cc/paypal the full amount.

It's a clusterfuck of epic proportions. Just glancing at cag before bed so no time to post the story right now. Did anyone get them to fix it?

99% of PS5 games are on Series X also, so yeah.

Yes. It even makes the PS5 games run in true 4K.

So I just read an article on Gamerant that suggests an external disc drive for the Xbox Series S, might be in the works.  Something about a patent being filed by Microsoft that lets you use a game disc to gain access to a digital copy.

I got the impression it was something like that.  Use your disc as a key to unlock a digital copy.  I think it was an external drive.  There was also a suggestion of linking up an Xbox One to an Xbox Series S to get a digital copy on there.

I don't quite understand why you would want link an Xbox One and an Xbox Series S.  To me, just play the Xbox One for discs.

For two reasons:

 

1) Possibly better performance on the Series S, taking advantage of the better hardware. Kinda like playing a 360 game on the One. Sometimes you get a performance boost.

 

2) If it's a game that has been upgraded to X/S then you get the better version.

Gamestop refurbished xbox series x $460. 2 yr warranty for $70. Not bad if you have GS credit to burn or get 15% off GS gift cards from Kroger.

The warehouse is the best deal by far. A few CAGs have secured them but are very hard to come by.

Glad to see these becoming more available.  I'm trying to be patient and hold out for the next special edition console.

Keep forgetting to post and on mobile so here's the short story:
Ordered just the console paying all but $20ish with live money and $20 on an Amex. Purchase screen was correct. Next day, check shipping and notice Amex was billed full amount. Checked email receipt and it was the same. Amex site and ms balance confirmed it. Called ms and they couldnt change payment since it was processing. Recommended i call Amex to cancel, who can't cancel and thought it was odd ms suggested it. Hour later i get a shipment notification it entered shipping earlier in the day. Xbox arrives in 2 days and i call ms. Can't change payment type. Have to buy and return. He keeps trying to do the buy first and it won't work. Says return must be complete and then i can buy. Complete return and place order all with ms credit since i bought more to cover the total. Get an error that I've bought my limit. Call ms and they struggle to fix it. Say they will escalate it and call back within 3 days and don't place a new order. They call back in five days and it still won't work. Awaiting a one to three day call back for five days now.
