Xbox One S All Digital Edition could have been great. Too bad MS didn't take advantage. Seem like a rush to market idea catering to a very limited demographic like the PSP Go

If I were MS I would have:

Price it at $150-$200. Or keep at $250 and include one year Game Pass. Current price is a joke, as versions with Blu-ray and $60 game (anthem or assassin's Creed Odyssey) cost below $250 new. Retail not following $300 MSRP probably since it's selling well??

Make a smaller physical form factor (Xbox One S Slim). As of right now it's just a Xbox One S that has a blank space where the Blu-ray player supposed to be.

2TB instead of 1TB storage.
Seeing it's an all digital edition, very disappointing that it has the same memory capacity as the disc version

Seem to me that MS just put out a "new console" to appease investors with minimal effort. Hope they put all thier eggs in one basket for their PS5 competitor console

On side note. PS5 should have backwards compatibility, especially if the faster load times are true and not a PS5 remastered version of the game.
