Sony made a similar mistake with the digital only PSP if I remember, along with the memory cards.

Agreed, the no disc version needs to be MUCH cheaper.

April Dashboard Update rolling out -

OS version - 10.0.18362.2018 (19h1_release_xbox_dev_1904.190410-1845)

Release date

4/16/2019

Console restart

We heard you! There’s now an option to fully restart the console on the power center screen (press and hold the Xbox button on your controller).

Streamlined quests

Now you can get to Game Pass quests directly from the Game Pass hub on Home as well as from your profile. Just select Game Pass, then scroll down and select Quests – Show All.

Console keyboard improvements

We’ve updated the virtual keyboard on the console so that it takes up less space on the screen and can position itself smartly around text fields.

Easier uninstall

Want to install something new but faced with a full hard drive? Now, instead of first having to go choose what to remove, we suggest items for removal that will free up enough space on your hard drive. And here’s the kicker – when that’s done we automatically start installing your new game or app!

Xbox One Media Remote shortcut

The Xbox One Media Remote has been updated to let you reprogram the OneGuide button to launch a media app instead of OneGuide. This is a great shortcut to jump into your favorite media app and start watching.

The trailer thing for the All-Digital Xbox is nicely sarcastic.

Price to be a consistent $50 less than whatever the official price is for the regular S.

Ninja Theory's next game rumour -

Sounds similar to Razer, maybe they restarted it - https://www.hellblade.com/unseen-ninja-theory-razer/ or https://vimeo.com/103042345

Nice to see Resident Evil 5 HD (with all its DLC) sneak on to Game Pass. Beautiful, sexy Sheva is still my Top RE Girl. A great addition to my XB1X library.

Possibly the worst month ever, IMO.

Not the greatest, by any stretch of the imagination, but I'll take The Golf Club 2019. Both MS and Sony simply have to do better with their whole 'free games' approach. Mediocre, at best.

My daughter have already played a few games of Marooners, it is ok.

Is the Golf game the same as on the Pass? Seems odd to offer it for a month on Pass and then 'free' the next.

No, that was Golf Club 2. This is the latest one.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, will take the stage at 4:30 pm BST on Monday, May 6 for the opening keynote. He'll be followed by other Microsoft executives, who will lay out the future of each of Microsoft's platforms.

So I was going back and forth a while ago about buying an Xbox One X but as we are close to the release of the new systems being announced released and the likelihood good that it will be BC with all XBO games I have decided against it.

What I have done now is re-set up my Xbox One Elite console. I want to play some of the BC stuff they have added plus play Gears 4, Halo 5 and eventually their sequels. My question is, do these run ok on the standard XBO? Am I going to be missing out on a lot by not playing on a XBO X?

They should all run fine they just won't be in 4K. Gears 4/Halo 5 were spot on performance wise on the OG Bone when I'd first played them.

Perfect, I do have a 4K TV but considering how close the new systems it seems silly paying out for the X right now.

Yeah, I’m basically doing the same. As much as I’m tempted by an X, if my original XB1 can last until next year, it makes sense to wait.
