    On the other hand, Xbox One wasn't BC with 360 games from the start. When released, the Xbox Series S/X will be compatible with previous gen Xbox games.

    When you can buy XSS, which is compatible with new and old Xbox games, for the same low price than Xbox One S it doesn't make sense to keep producing Xbox Ones.

    XSeS is really not compatible with new and old games, what are you talking about?

    It doesnt have disc drive, so it is only compatible with digital versions.

    So if someone needs a console that plays xbox one + 360 games, and have discs = XSeX or xses+one it is.

    Dunno if XSeX runs xbox games at all. (First Xbox)

    Xbox Series S & X will both run backward compatible games including Xbox, Xbox 360 & Xbox One. The backward compatible system only checks the disk to see if it's valid & then it requires you to download the full digital game. With no drive on the XBSS it will only play digital backward compatible games that are on your account.

    BTW, if you want to use an abbreviation for the Series consoles these are the accepted ones: XSS, XBSS, XSX or XBSX. No E's are needed.

    Not new, but the second hand market will likely balloon as folks upgrade.

    Yes. I expect that to be a boom for GameStop or the other shops which deal with the second hand market. There used to be a few different ones in my area but they had all closed down because they couldn't compete with GameStop.

    As for trade-in values, I expected anywhere from $0.52 to $2.74. Surprisingly, their trade-in values aren't as bad as I thought they'd be.

    Xbox One 500GB Launch edition $75
    Xbox One S Digital edition $85
    One S 500GB $100
    One S 1TB $110
    One X $175

    PS4 500GB $100
    PS4 Slim 1TB $140
    PS4 Pro 1TB $175

    In Italy they give 200 euros for a ps4 (this is incredible, even 7 years old ps4)... 230 for ps4pro and oneX, 100 for oneS, 70 for One....
