Near terrible unit, no backward play of owned discs and terrible 512GB storage with under 400 available and proprietary memory modules to play series x titles instead of USB. Parents be careful, this unit may require new all digital $90 games so buy the Xbox cash cards not physical games. Also ensure there arent a bunch of Xbox 360 or Xbox one discs at your house because if so you need the other more expensive unit that'll play those with its disc drive

Of course the other one is sold out everywhere until March (apparently), so at least you can play the next gen games. The discs will be $90 too. It is also $220 less (+tax) and it is available.

well for me personally, my main will be the ps5. So it makes zero sense getting the series x. However, the series S is appealing for exclusives+gamepass.

exactly. and physical games on these systems make no sense because there are always bloody downloads and updates. only console worth getting physical is the switch

I'm all-in on PlayStation 5. I was curious about the Xbox Series S being so cheap but after quick research it really shouldn't be considered close to the experience on an Xbox Series X or PS5 digital version.

It's basically designed for kids to get playing Fortnite and play some next-gen titles on "medium" graphics instead of "ultra" to use the PC gaming terms.

Specs/features versus the Xbox Series X.
  • 1/2 the storage space of the Series X
  • 1/3 the graphics processing power compared to Series X
  • Maximum 1440p resolution - not 4K like the Series X
  • Not backwards compatible with Xbox One, 360 or original Xbox discs - Only digital downloads

I guess if you don't have a PC and need to play Xbox exclusive games makes sense but you are buying a console with only 4tf vs 10tf for 100$ diff ps5 or 200$ for xbsx

Microsoft said they'll release new stock on release day.

it'll be over $200CDN to get a 1tb memory card, £160 converts to $270CDN today, so the extra 512gb in the xsx is near worth it alone ignoring all the other benefits. Hope those parents have fast internet or only one child who plays.

Thanks for telling everyone. I was hoping Craigslist and Kijiji will be littered with used ones for $150 ... this is what they're really worth, if anything.
