Am I the only one who's disappointed to see all these consoles at crazy prices on Ebay and Marketplace?

Why does Amazon released pre orders for the most popular console at 3 am on a weekday? Honestly!

Seriously though... that is complete BS.
They pretty much want it to only be bots to get it.

Sad but expected at this point.

The good thing is it’ll take an off the shelf drive, so hold off a year or two if you can. By then you can get one at a decent price while MS is still overcharging for their proprietary stuff.

Digital games should be $20 cheaper, it makes no sense that they're the same price.

Not necessarily true. You might want to read up on the way storage works for both consoles for better understanding.
And following your logic, then the Xbox Series S will hold only 2 games and has a potentially more expensive proprietary memory. Does that make sense to you?
c'mon get happy!
