Same. In years prior I've been buying from Gamestop but they seem to be going out of business at an alarming rate. Don't want to give them my money and then the store close or something before we even get to release date.
I'm talking more so certain stores. Had an issue a few months back where I pre-ordered a game from Gamestop for my nephews birthday. When he went to get the game, the store had closed. I'm still waiting on a return email from Gamestop HQ on where he'll be able to redeem his copy.
I'm looking to pick up a discounted XBone X when these come out. I'm so far behind on playing current-gen titles that I have no need for the cutting edge. These new consoles look really nice, though. I'm sure I'll pick one up eventually. I hate the exclusive platform title thing that's becoming more and more prevalent.
Apparently you can store and play old games from an external but not the new games. The new added storage is rumored to be $200. I don't love the change butaybe still having old storage can be useful somehow
Live at 11AM. Signed onto websites at 11:02 AM and already out of stock lol.
With any gen, immediate upgrades are not really required as all games work on the current consoles too so I'm not focused on it. If I catch a preorder, cool, if not, Maybe I can get one closer to or after xmas.
Proprietary SSD options for new xbox announced at $219 for 1TB.
External harddrive can house xbox one, 360 and OG games but not new games. New games have to go on new xbox hard drive or installed extra SSD drive.
Series s something like 500GB out the box. X is 1tb out the box.
I am used to having a huge backup ready to go but I also never got close to filling the 5 TB. Thinking if anything I can survive on the OG 1tb in the X with the games I am currently playing at a time as I usually only carry a few games at a time as active games. IE right now it is warzone and tony hawk 1+2 but also party games like trivial pursuit, jackbox and etc.
