No increase for xbox even with the cheaper smaller model launched?
Why would anyone expect some increase from that product launch? Normal One S is already cheaper than that. And the problem is that retailers won't even try to lower the prices on this model because they don't really have intention to sell it. Because stores focused on selling games have nothing in return for selling this digital only console. Actually, where I live only one store is selling it right now. And it is the biggest consumer electronics store. Stores that are focused on selling game discs decided not to sell this product.
It's not cheaper or smaller. It's quite easy to find bundles of the XBO S, a superior system, for less than what the SAD sells for. Also, the Xbox One S and Xbox One SAD are exactly the same size. Lazy design. There has been no hype for the SAD. It's been getting roundly slammed by fans and gaming sites alike. There's no reason for it to exist outside of functioning as a test product for MS. Basically, it's an inferior version of a product that hasn't been selling that great to begin with.
Well, it's a bad test product because the data that MS will get from it's sales is not really showing a real demand for digital only console. The reason is of course the same pricing as normal One S.
