I didn't have a Kinect sensor.

Just traded in my OG Xbox for the Xbox One S. Realized I forgot to take out the 'play and charge' rechargeable battery from the old controller though... ugh

Just traded mine in. No HDMI required. They didn’t even plug in my console to test it.

Thanks OP

Would be all over this if you could get a different bundle but it looks like the Halo/GoW one is cheaper than the rest which is probably why it’s the one they are doing. Already have all of those games so little point (beyond the system upgrade of course).

Can anyone who has done a console transfer already confirm that my game data is saved to the cloud? So I simply have to log in on the new Xbox and still have the same in-game loot.

I play a ton of overwatch and I'm worried about all my data/skins being lost.

I’m in the same boat. I have the physical discs of halo 5 and GoW. Gonna try to sell the physical discs to make back some money.

Hot deal if it is the Gears/halo bundle....is it also 1tb system? That would make it awesome.
I did the trade in for my OG xbox1 console on black friday for $49.99, but they only gave the 500gb xbox one S.
I would have gladly paid an extra $30 for Gears 4 and 500 more gbs.

If I were to do this trade in, will my current Kinect work with Xbox S? Is the S console has much better hardware and is hence much faster?

The Kinect needs an adapter in order to work with the S. Microsoft ran a promotion that ended in March where if you upgraded from the OG to the S they'd send you a free adapter, and some of us have successfully asked customer service to send us free adapters after March, but that's really YMMV.

I think the biggest differences would be that it's a 4K UHD Blu-ray player, supports HDR, it's 40% smaller, the power brick is built in, and you'd be getting a new warranty/less old system. I thought the upgrade was worth it when I did it earlier this year, but my OG was refurbished and the new S feels like it runs more smoothly.

FYI, the bundle comes with 2 physical games (Halo 5 and Gears of War 4) and 2 digital downloads (Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Halo The Master Chief Collection) and 1 month free of Xbox Game Pass.

So if you’re in the same boat as me and you already have these games, you can try to resell the physical games to recoup some of the money paid for the trade in.

Traded my 1TB but they would only give the 500GB in return. They required a HDMI cable which I did not have so they took it out of the new system instead.

Worked out well all and all.

Is anyone else hearing loud hissing noises from the Xbox One S? Pretty sure it’s the internal HDD, but it’s super loud. Louder than my old Xbox One for sure.

Picked one up today, no grief at all. Easy upgrade from my original PS4.

Might end up with a profit if it includes games and ebgames has good trade in deals. The network speeds on the S are much better than on the OG

Looks like I got a defective fan in my XBOX One S Confused Face I hear the same sound as in the video. Anyone else have this problem too?
