If I didnt have a Xbox One already I'd probably would get the digital edition if it were $50 cheaper because I only have like 6 physical games and i own them digitally also anyway. I rarely buy physical games and I know lots of people who are the same.
Like I mentioned, if they were going with $249, knowing full well they were still selling their XBO S SKUs for the same price (and probably will for the foreseeable future, so the sales don't plummet) a 4TB HDD was a necessity to justify the purchase. Right now, you can pay less for the drive one and still go all digital. Maybe save the drive for 4K movies and playing B/C Xbox and 360 games. I don't know what the marketing department was thinking on this one. They even lacked the foresight to not name it the XBO SAD.
