Got two Series X consoles for myself and a friend. From MS and BB. Patience letting screens load and refreshes if they didn't. No issues but some extra time.

You can change that after the fact. Think it even said it somewhere along the way.?.

It almost seems like it's impossible to get something for the first 10-20 minutes of a launch because the bots are so fast and efficient at just hammering the websites...if you can get past that initial hammering with some stock left then you have a decent chance perhaps.

Websites need to make it as difficult as possible for people to use bots and order large quantities of this stuff. Pretty sure they have the means to be able to accomplish this

I was able to change it after it was sold out, Just hoping I can use my balance before it expires in Dec. for the Series X. I thought for sure I would be able to get a Series X ordered through Microsoft, but nope. And I started right when it went live.

I started on MS at 11 and had a console at 11:25. Was a lot of patience letting pages load. If they failed I refreshed until I could move on. Then repeat all the way to the end.

About a half hour later I found out my gaming friend was stuck working and not able to get one. I hit BB and ran the same process. Had the second in about 15 minutes.

I would keep checking for stock to come back in.

*But after the pre order is processed you can go back and change the payment options at MS and BB. Not sure about other places beyond those.

Did all that at the MS store, I needed to use my Balance, And it wasn't showing up originally. I let the pages go until they timed out for an hour straight. Since I already have it paid for through MS I was stuck with them. The funny thing is the order is still in my cart at the final step, just cant check out because they are gone.

Pre-orders still available in UAE. Gays don't seem to like the XBOX much here.

A few were bought by accident or by bots.

Sales were rock bottom as it's a discounted system. So a small amount of sales were enough to move it up the Amazon sales charts.

Looking through FB marketplace for some cars and there's a bunch of PS5 and XSX pre-orders by resellers.

I hope these people get hit by trucks and end up paraplegics. It's ****ing insane.

well you could always wait a year when actual next gen stuff comes out (instead of enhanced ports, or games that exist on the previous gen stuff) and then get one then at original retail or possible price dropped pricing......

A Primer on the Simple and Custom Storage Options Available for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S at Launch

By the way, the 1TB Seagate expansion card looks to be $220 USD. I think it'll be skipping it for now.

Was seeing on reddit that people were getting their orders through by force. I did one hell of a lot of clicking the last few days at the MS store but just a minute ago it processed my order. The console has been in my cart since Tuesday. Who knows if it will hold, but its definitely interesting. Got the order email as well and they took my Microsoft Account balance.

Got a lappy with a 2070, full desktop rig, etc.

It’s not that I mind pc gaming, but I spend 10-12 hours a day in my home office on a pc of some sort. When I get off work I don’t want to spend another minute in my office and the wife said “hellz no” to moving the desktop to the family room.

Console gaming all the way for me for the foreseeable future.

The key question is this: How long does it take to transfer an average-size game from USB 3.1 hdd storage to the SSD? If it takes 5 minutes or less, then this will all be fine. If it takes 40 minutes, then this is going to dramatically alter players habits moving forward.

As someone who owns a large collection of games and likes to revisit them often in small bite-size tastes, I love the old disk-based model, as I can just pop in whatever game I want to play and be playing in a few minutes.

The current generation sucks. Requiring game installations & patches are absolutely terrible. I remember once when my son opened the new skylanders game for his birthday, and he was super excited to pop it in and play it that evening. The game installed for 45 minutes, then demanded that we download a 10gb patch, which would take several hours, so we just had to put him to bed instead. It absolutely ruined the birthday celebration for a 7 year old.

I hate that in this generation, I have to schedule my gaming in advance so I can install and patch games before I'm allowed to play them. It's ruined gaming sessions for me many times. There's lots of evenings when I think "I'm in a the mood to play a game", and then realize that I can't because I have to schedule time to install it first. so nevermind, I'll just watch tv instead.

So I've bought fairly large external drives for my current-gen consoles, and at least once I install a game it's available permanently after that. This will work fine for next-gen as well, assuming that games move quickly from mass-storage to the smaller SSD when you need them.

Otherwise we're going to see a console generation where players are expected to play only a few games at a time, with lots of planning involved... rarely revisiting older games that you have purchased. Actually I think it's a model that really favors games-as-a-service like Fortnite, that continually auto-update in the background and are ready to play when you are.

When there were rumors that the next-gen consoles might have expandable storage options that are more cartridge-like, I had speculated that it would be interesting for them to sell games on super fast flash storage that run directly off of flash storage. I kindof like that idea, that maybe you could buy a 50gig game on a super fast but very small SSD or something, and just pop it in and play instantly with no installation. It almost seems like the xbox expandable storage could have been designed with that in mind... I think it's still prohibitively expensive to build 50-100GB SSDs with the transfer speed needed, but I can imagine that price coming down dramatically over the course of this generation.

Sorry for the rant, but I just had to get it off my chest.

Yes this could be a problem, I'm not going to buy a $220 small expansion SSD. Hell I have about 7 TB of Xbox games stored on an external drive right now. The fast load is nice an all but the game shouldn't be built requiring it. Copying 50GB to 200GB off and on the internal SSD is going to take more time then most will like.

Couldn't agree more though, you're absolutely right.

I don't see the problem, you'll be able to fit one installation of call of duty on both nextgen consoles, what more do you need?

Microsoft is implementing a new feature for Xbox that will allow people who buy games on disc to download the game prior to release so that when you get the disc you'll only have to, at worst, download an update if the game requires it (which is out of Microsoft's control).

As far as storage goes...you only need to put games made or optimized for the new Series systems on the internal drive. All the other current games can still run off external storage. I'm guessing they'll load faster even off external (depending on your drive speed) because the CPU is much faster this time around. What I don't know is if you can run a current game off the internal drive and have it load faster still???

Most external drives won't be fast enough to max out the throughput on the USB 3.1 connections

To me the internal drive capacity limit isn't an issue...I don't play tons of different games at a time. Outside of the biggest AAA games, most aren't over 60 or 70GB and you can still put quite a few on the 1TB drive
