I want one of these day one but I have a feeling they will be hard to get. During this pandemic, a LOT of people took up gaming. I'm sure that wont die out with a new console release.

Outdoor hobbies have been constantly sold out as well. I'll be trying to preorder because I want the extra money for consoles in exchange but we'll see.

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 dont see any world where gamestop goes out of business during a console launch. Its the most profitable time for them.

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.

One X is going for $250-$300 on ebay currently. Gamestop will give me $200 for mine as a trade in. I'd happily sell it to you for that instead of them if you'd like @puckhead

I'm in zero rush, so I'm sure it will be quicker for you to get your trade in and go for it, but I really appreciate the offer. :thumbup:

just LMK. I have a 5TB harddrive with it too that will not be compatible with the series X. I was going to sell it online or something.

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.

I saw that a lot of people bought Xbox One X's on pre-order day thinking it was the Series X console. :eek: They're going to be so disappointed!

750% increase on xbox one X. Hoping it is all the bots that scalpers create to buy up inventory and they get saddled with a bunch of one X's for typing their code wrong.
