So fricking cool!
I have to say, this is pretty awesome. I'm glad MS is doing this and has made it so modular.
I’m currently seeing a “There’s a problem getting this content right now”.
Hard reset twice and it’s still there.
Network panel shows all good.

"Report: Cheaper, disc-free Xbox One option coming next year | Ars Technica" (https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/11/report-cheaper-disc-free-xbox-one-option-coming-next-year/)
Meh. The X1X is the best UHD bargain on the market, no sense ruining that =p I spect they will keep both on market (disk and no) for a while.
The report says that the discless console would be a modified Xbox One S, not X. Microsoft is trying to pretend the launch model Xbox One doesn't exist anymore and that the S is now the base model. The discless console is probably for late adopters who want to either get the Xbox Game Pass or download older/cheaper games.
I'm on board with that strategy. I don't think the playstation lead is a big deal, but others do. This is a way to expand the user base, great. How low could it go? The S sells for $200 now right? Could this be $150, is $99 unreasonable?
I don't remember the details but I think the report said the discless One S could be sold for $150 or $200 with a year of Live/Game Pass. Something like that.
Honestly, the PS4 lead is a MASSIVE deal, but Microsoft is still making money on the Xbox brand and 2nd place is the prime position to do some experimentation. They've considered a discless console before but finally doing so with the One S combined with a Netflix-like service that automatically includes all of their big name releases on day one...that's a good strategy, and I could see it being a foot-in-the-door for the next generation to offer a similar option. The rumors were that MS is developing a "family" of devices for their next Xbox that would include a traditional console, a discless barebones console, and a streaming service.
Hey guys, got a question. I'm buying the XBox One X for my son and was wondering if all xbox 360 games will play on it. Thanks!
No @Bob_S. but the vast majority are supported. Chances are the games you want will be playable. Got a list?
COD World at War
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
Lord of the Rings: War in the North
Lord of the Rings: The Third Age
Sam, I'm a noob when it comes to gaming, we have a Wii with some games but that's it. My son expressed interest in gaming and I was going to get him an Xbox because of the backwards compatibility. I picked the Xbox One X because a) it's on sale now and b) it's the latest and greatest. I'm trying to decide if I should get the Xbox One X or would the Xbox One be enough. Advice?
Get the X if you can afford it. It is a huge improvement.
All games on the backward compatibility list:
Looks like World at war is but the LOTR ones are not. Shadow of Mordor is a One native game with X enhancements. Its fantastic as is it's sequel Shadow of War. You can buy both VERY cheaply today @Bob_S.
Thanks for your help Sam, bought the X from GameStop. $400 (same as everywhere else) but included a $50 gift card plus I got $10 off a second controller.
I'm late to the party, but I now qualify to post in this thread.
Target had a good deal for a white 1 TB Xbox One S with a new Star Wars game and a $40 Target gift card for $200. And I plan to sell the game since it doesn't look interesting, so with those two discounts, it ends up somewhere below $150.
I just hope they e-mail the gift card code. I bought it almost 10 hours ago online and the e-mail says the code "usually arrives within 4 hours", but still no code. Hopefully just busy servers (Or maybe they don't want anyone using it until after Black Friday).
I got my nephew 2 years of XBL and converted it to 28 months of Ultimate Game Pass all for under $110
