Hmm, not too far off this month. Looks like those $249 XBO bundles are doing alright in brick and mortar, because XBO has little presence on Amazon recently.  Which really makes me wonder, what the hell is even the point of the discless version. You're getting much less  for the same price as a normal XBO. If it had a 4TB HDD, then ok, but it doesn't.

It's for the holidays probably. MS said that they will keep a $50 differrence in MSRP and last Holiday the S was going for $180. They probably want to hit that $130 pricepoint for the late gen buyers.

And not only the holidays. MS keeps having $50 off-1 week promotions pretty every month.

And that without taking into account that we are talking about MSRP here. And since the regular X1S pretty much always can be found for $249 if you look around, I would assume in a couple of months you'll be able to find the SAD edition for around $199 pretty easily.
