    It makes sense that Microsoft may divert Series X stock to regions with less regulation on credit agreements. For the most part, credit agreements in Europe, are more regulated. Putting stock where the most profit is makes sense.

    I ended up swapping my daughter's One S for a Series S this weekend as Game (UK store) are running a good trade in deal.

    It lives under the main TV and have to say it's blissfully quiet. The apparent height of the box is slightly annoying. Since it doesn't have the tiers of the OneS, it looks taller sat on the shelf. Nothing too offensive though.

    Quick resume is brilliant.

    It handed the few games I played on it brilliantly. A good 1080p picture is fine at 3m. Looking forward to giving it a workout with next gen titles when there actually are some!

    If it's too rubbish at those an X is inevitable. :-D

    Indeed. It was £89 after trade in. There might be some better delta down the line where the Series S is cheaper and the One still has good trade in value, but that's hard to envisage.

    We don't have any disc games so really was a good opportunity for us.
