I know I'm one of those "full digital" guys but am I the only one who wishes we NEVER go back to popping in a disc and playing directly from that? I mean they're so noisy and they fail so often!

One benefit I found with digital downloads.  If you go to someone else house and they have the same game but its on a disk, if you sign in with your profile, the disk would not be needed and it will run the game as if it was a digital download.

I fired up a few games that aren't patched to be "Xbox Enhanced". Very impressed with the results. Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen looks like I was hoping it would when I bought it. Cuphead loads faster. I'm looking forward to a day off from work to really get into it.

I can tell that I am going to quickly run out of storage space. Does running an external hard drive hurt loading times, or cause issues in gaming in 4K or Enhanced modes?



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

This is the first major console I haven't bought since...Gamecube, I think. Someone should play the old KOTOR game and tell me how it looks. :)

With XBox One S you could get fast improvements in loading times by using an external drive

It all depends on the drive of course, and there are no tests yet how fast the internal drive is in the X. But since the S already makes good use of a faster drive it would seem logical that using an external SSD to icopy the game you're playing on will help a lot.

The Xbox one X has a 7200rpm drive confirmed tough, right? that would at least make it the fastest stock drive. Obviously a SSD is always much faster.

Apparently it does not

The interface is faster, cpu as well, so loading times are decreased just as on the pro with an 5400 rpm drive. A good external drive will still be better.

128MB cache is the only improvement over the S then, so yeah, 7200rpm or hybrid or ssd should increase performance, strange I wonder who spread that 7200rpm rumour lol

Watch a video on it myself just before release as I was curious also, Internals provided a big boost over the S but the internal of the X seems to be basically the same as using an external HDD.

Vid below compared S/X and externals but for the X Internal vs Externals specifically it's at 4:35.

That's very promising and he only used two slow 5400 rpm external drives. With a 7200 rpm sshd drive results should be even better.
